You are welcomed to the home by Annelise, who gives you a basic Charleston history lesson before you receive your keys. She is full of helpful suggestions, and if you stay here, I suggest you follow her advice on everything; she and her husband, Jack, are longtime Charlestonians, who are extremely knowledgeable. The accommodations are comfortable, the breakfast is adequate, and the afternoon happy hour is a nice touch. You're within no more than a 30 minute walk from everything you want to see. My wife and I are experienced B and B travelers, and this certainly ranks among the better ones.
