My sisters & I were looking for a moderately priced bed and breakfast in Charleston that could accommodate all 3 of us in one room. Anyone who has ever stayed in Charleston knows that it is a challenge to find nice accommodations in the historic district at a reasonable price. Phillips-Yates-Snowden House, centrally located near the Battery, met our requirements and so much more. The historic home is beautiful, and our room was spacious and comfortable. But the nicest thing about this B&B is the owners, Annelise & Jack Simmons. The Phillips Yates Snowden House is their home, and it has been in the family for over 60 years. Their guests are treated like friends who have been invited to stay for a while in their home. Even the family dogs - Madeline, Snickers and Pappy - are friendly and welcoming. This is not a place for someone who is seeking luxury and four star white-glove service. But for someone who wants a friendly, comfortable, convenient place to stay at a very reasonable price, this is the ticket.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Now the home of Dr. & Mrs. Jack W. Simmons, Jr., the property was originally owned by Captain Timothy Phillips during the Revolution. The Snowden family constructed the present Greek Revival house in the early 1840's and it served as a hospital during the Civil War during which time it was struck by four cannonballs, two of which are now mounted on the gate posts. It is notable for ironwork by Charleston ironwright, Philip Simmons. ... more less
