This B&B is not what we expected from a property that has expensive daily rates. We have many stays at similar properties to make this comparison. The room we had was nice, comfortable, and of the expected quality. This was the good part. On the other hand, the (2) breakfasts were of fast food quality, and not prepared to order... More

We stayed at Villa 15 - huge, beautiful house, so lovely that we took pictures for redecorating ideas at home. Well equipped and appointed. Loved the delicious breakfasts and the Folly Punch every afternoon at the Happy Hour. Highly recommended.

We've stayed at the Water's Edge Inn many times, and continue to come back because it's such a great place. We traveled to Charleston in early March for the Food & Wine Festival, which was great, but knowing you have a place to come back to each evening like the Water's Edge Inn really makes it special. The owner always... More

I came down to Charleston from Maryland knowing that South Carolina is especially famous for its southern hospitality, but the Water's Edge Inn exceeded all expectations. The staff were absolutely amazing and catered to any and every need. I was suppose to stay from only Friday to Sunday, but because of how great of an experience I was having, decided... More

First time experience with a Bed and Breakfast, and the Water's Edge Inn exceeded my expectations! This place is well worth every penny! Everything is top notch from the well appointed guest rooms to the simple but excellent home cooked breakfast. I almost forgot 'Happy Hour' with free cold beer, wine, Folly punch, and snacks. Both nights of happy hour,... More

Complimentary happy hours and breakfasts are great, aren't they?!! I'm glad you were able to enjoy that time fully with both the staff and other guests. We typically have a pretty fun crew here either working or also enjoying their vacations and looking to meet more people doing the same - happy hour is always a great place to make... More

As a fellow member of the hospitality community, serving guests in a luxury resort hotel, I appreciate tasteful accommodations and genuine personality. The Water's Edge Inn does not disappoint in either front. After touring on a whim in January of 2013, I knew I would stay as a guest in the future. It simply made an impression. My friend Samantha...

This is a lovely, quiet place to stay. The location is perfect, as it is at the end of a pretty street, away from the noise and people at Folly Beach. Our room was very comfortable and we loved using the gas fire. The bathroom was huge and had a wonderful rain shower and large claw foot bath. On checking... More
