My husband and I stayed at Cabell House on December 30 & 31, 2014. We had been looking for a place near historic Charleston that was also pet friendly. This lovely B&B was perfect. Battery park and the waterfront was at the end of the block, perfect for walking our dog. Even the farthest point in the historic district was... More

They are warm & gracious. Great rooms, enjoy the veranda & amenities ! Just off the Battery park, easy walk to everything. But, yet in a quiet neighborhood of old Victorian style homes that we love! Bottled water & coffee in your room & a wine frig in dining room with wine! Enjoy

I had an exceptional experience staying at Cabell House. I specifically wanted to stay in a private home b&b South of Broad that truly was a family home, not an inn. The location was perfect. I was encouraged to make myself right at home and I did! I really felt like it was my home while I was there. After... More

Randy Cabell, despite being curteous, is dishonest-we submitted a deposit that she claimed never went through but it was charged to our card. We complained and were pushed back by the owner. We arrived mid-afternoon. Nobody there. Calls went to voicemail. We had to wait 3 hours to get in. No apologies. The room was dirty from the previous tenant.... More

The owner, Randy and her staff was absolutely awesome. One person in our group of 7 became ill while we were there and the staff bent over backwards to make her as comfortable as they could. The rooms were very comfortable. The only drawback is the sink in the bathrooms. I think that is the smallest sink I have ever... More

We arrived after a twelve hour trip to a dark house with no answer to our knocking. Two sealed envelopes were on the door but neither one had our name. Repeated phone calls went unanswered. We had called the day before to confirm our arrival time but spent two hours waiting when a flustered owner arrived with no explanation for... More

A very nice B7B right in the heart of the oldest part of Charleston, down by the Battery (tip). It is a classic older place with lots of old touches. Randy and C.... do a great job for breakfast, for cleaning, for having a bottle of wine always ready, for helping with a dog, and so on. The side yard... More

We stayed in the Claiborne room, as we were looking for a B&B with king bed accommodations. Our room was lovely, and breakfast was very good both days. We had French toast one day, spinach & ham omelette the next day. The porch is a lovely spot to relax, and it's very close to Battery, so a great place to... More

The nice thing about staying at a B&B is that the owner/manager generally has an interest in providing a personalized experience for guests. From our experience, they are usually willing to go above and beyond to make the guest's stay special. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case at the Cabell house. We were staying there over my birthday weekend during a... More

My wife and I stayed in the Nathaniel room for two nights in July. We brought our two Labradors with us. The room was lovely; clean, beautiful trim, fresh paint, everything you would expect. They took excellent care of us; we especially enjoyed the dog walking. We highly recommend them. We enjoyed the openness of the space, and how the... More
