The staff and owner of the Cannonboro Inn made our stay in Charleston very comfortable. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts were amongst the best meals we had during our trip. Thank You!

I have worked with this B&B for over 10 years. They are the best. Clean, fabulous food, awesome people and always accommodating. Highly recommend them. Just awesome! If you want the charm of Charleston--this is the place to be. It is close enough to bicycle or to walk to downtown--just park and play. There is a bit of traffic but... More

First time at Cannonboro Inn. We found Barry very interesting to talk to. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. With some great stories to tell us. Lyn is a fantastic hostess and chef. You will be amazed with the afternoon wine and snacks!!

This was my first B&B experience and I can't stop talking about it. From the minute we arrived till the minute we left the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly..The 1800'S house was charming and clean. The first and second floor "piazzas" were a delight to eat, drink, mingle or simply relax on. The gourmet breakfast each... More

Stop your search right here! This positively immaculate and well-appointed inn with an extremely efficient staff made me feel so welcomed! Lynn, our consummate hostess, provided in-depth information to the best restaurant and tours in the Charleston area—even the best locations for photographs. Her expertise didn’t stop there as she cooked us scrumptious gourmet breakfasts served on the beautiful verandah,... More

I'm not sure what some people expect when they stay at a B&B, but I loved every minute of our visit. Our 1st floor room was beautiful, the bed comfortable and the street noise was not a distraction at all. Barry was indeed a wealth of information on local history and we enjoyed talking with him. Lynn was amazing in... More

This B&B was recommended to us by some friends who had stayed here several years ago and we were not disappointed! We went to Charleston for a wedding and truly enjoyed not staying in the hotel where the wedding party & guests were located.

The first room had no hot water and only one air conditioning vent worked, so they moved us. This room was more spacious but on the front of the house upstairs, so again, the room was hot! Again, took 20 minutes to get hot water(which mayhave been the problem with the first room) but the major problem was noise from... More

Thank you for the compliment about breakfast.And Barry sure does know his history! Unfortunately we are located on a city street with traffic. Being that the city was established over 400 years ago always lends itself to small streets that weren't really made for large cars and trucks...which in turn reverberate noise. I truly feel that I made every effort... More
