surprised my wife with a special getaway before a wedding in Charleston. She loves history so I wanted something historic but also really nice. John Rutledge House Inn was perfect. Our room was beautiful, soaring ceilings, views of the old church steeples, antique furniture, updated bath. The breakfast was was great, we dined in the courtyard each morning. The staff were very helpful but non intrusive. We walked everywhere. It is very close to the waterfront park area, and right in the middle of all the old historic sites. We will return for sure.
