We recently stayed at the Cannonboro Inn in April. The best parts of our stay: Nice downstairs living area, dining area and outdoor porch deck and small garden area; Great breakfasts, especially Susan's rum and sugar french toast; Nice evening wine, cheese and nuts "tea"; Barry, the owner, is outstanding - a great personality and his knowledge about Charleston and its environs is exceptional!

If you stay here, try for one of the larger rooms on the second floor with its own temperature contr...
