Very special place in the heart of Charleston. Staff went out of their way for my sisters and I to make our stay memorable. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The outside area in the back was perfect for breakfast and for enjoying wine and appetizers that we supplied, staff were kind enough too supply glasses and wine bucket. Highly recommend... More

I really liked the Barksdale House. It needs some upkeep but still has a LOT of charm. Our room was nice and clean but the chairs could be more comfortable. We loved the cookies and coffee at check-in. The expanded continental breakfast was very tasty. Staff were friendly. Unfortunately, a tropical storm hit and the parking area was flooded. That...

Staying in the Barksdale House Inn is like getting into a time machine and going back 300 years. A very old well maintained house with excellent location, good breakfast, and helpful personnel. I stayed in room #6 on the first floor and had no trouble carrying my luggage considering there's no elevator. Totally recommend it. Four posted king side bed,... More

Clean and full of charm. The home has the Victorian character you'd expect in a Bed & Breakfast. It is right in the heart of everything - walking distance to shopping, sightseeing and historical sites. The breakfast was very good and they had coffee, tea and freshly baked cookies or brownies available during the day.

This is a classy and elegant establishment tucked away in the heart of Charleston. An easy walk to any of the downtown shops, but all of the sounds of the city do no interfere with the the peace and quiet this B&B offers. All of the rooms have a fun story, and the Inn offers deals in the local community.... More

I was traveling with a small dog, and we stayed in the carriage house of the inn. The room was large and had every amenity that I required. I particularly appreciated the small refrigerator to keep my beverages cool during the very hot days we experienced. My only complaint at all is that, despite an extra piece of foam on... More

This is a return visit for my husband and I. We come back every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The house is beautiful and full of charm. It has such a cozy atmosphere. Everyone is so friendly and kind. The breakfast was heavenly.

I know it's not so touchy-feely to talk about location but it seemed to my wife and I to be a perfect value. When you add a great staff it makes for a enjoyable stay. The breakfast was continental style leaning toward fruit. The house is tucked away on a small street. The outside while attractive is in need of... More

We stayed at the lovely Barksdale House Inn for two nights, and it is a grand old place with lots of charm and character. The room we initially booked had a little problem which could have ruined our stay, but the staff were wonderful and offered us another room right away which was an upgrade.
