We spent 3 nights. This B & B is located in a part of old Charleston. 15 minutes walking and you cover, Rainbow houses, Market street, King street, walk along the harbor, and many local stops. Very nice breakfast, afternoon tea, parking for small and midsize cars, and the charm of a very old house. Clean rooms, nice staff and... More

Ideal location with everything in Charleston centre within walking distance. There was ample parking with a couple of options for larger vehicles and we would recommend if in a larger vehicle to try and avail of one of the two parking spaces a block further along the street. Room was comfortable and quiet with adequate facilities. Breakfasts were okay but... More

This was a great location to walk almost everywhere in historic Charleston. The breakfasts were excellent, and so were the afternoon treats. We especially enjoyed Jessica, who is super friendly and goes out of her way for guests. She made a special birthday treat for us, even though the birthday was not until a few days after our departure. Note:... More

We stayed in the upper level of the carriage house and, as stated on the website, it has it's own small private bath. We just weren't expecting a tiny bathroom without enough room for knees when on the toilet. There is an ugly tub/shower combination from the 1990s and one of the smallest sinks ever designed for a bathroom. The... More

We stayed here for one night and were absolutely delighted. Beautiful house, gorgeous and very comfortable room, helpful and welcoming staff. Location is perfect, too: very quiet street, walking distance from King st. and Charleston College. We wish we could have stay longer. Thanks!

Stayed here in the carriage house for two of the four nights we purchased. Unfortunately the room was musty and full of mold. The window air conditioner ran all night. It was loud and kept us awake. The in room experience was not relaxing or comfortable. I have no knowledge of whether staying in the main house is any better.... More

The location is off the well worn path of King Street and the College of Charleston, but it is worth a few extra minutes of walking. Off street parking is a bit challenging with its close quarters, but the breakfasts are delicious and filling. The sheets are perfect, but I found the bed to be less than great for my... More
