My wife and I recently returned to Charleston after six years and had chosen Governor House as a great central location on Broad Street. What a great place to stay. This is such a well maintained historic house that I would chose it again for our next visit. This house is most famous as the the house of Edward Rutledge the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence and brother of John Rutledge of the Constitution Convention and signer of the final document which he helped write and first governor of South Carolina. The house is so beautiful and quite a treat to see and learn more of its history and that of Charleston and America. The breakfasts were outstanding as were the afternoon wine and snack times. The staff was very courteous, accommodating and helpful with directions and restaurant reservations. We chose the Orange Grove Room in the lower level both for it spaciousness, location with private entrance and access to parking for bringing in luggage. The room was beautifully furnished, comfortable and the bath was large and great for bath and shower. We would without question recommend the Governor House for your stay and for our next visit!!! Enjoy!!! Say hello to New the cat as he greats all guests!!!
