There are some very good things to like about 15 Church Street. The first most obvious is it's location. It's on a quiet little street two blocks from the Battery and within walking distance of most downtown restaurants and attractions. Secondly, Jack and Annalise are two very nice people and the social hour they provide is a great way to... More

While we always want to please all of our guests we realize that, being human, it is just not possible to be perfect. We are sorry that the experience of these guests was so clouded by our tardiness. These delightful people did indeed schedule a 2:30 arrival (usual check-in is 4 PM) and Annelise is usually here at that time... More

Had a great 3 days in Charleston especially staying at 15 Church St. Annelise and Jack, as well as Martha, helped us make the most of our time in this beautiful and historic city with such fabulous restaurants. Stayed in the Cypress room which perfectly met our needs, and the yummy breakfasts helped us start our day filled with energy.... More

If you looked up bed and breakfast in the dictionary, you'd find a picture of 15 Church Street. Jack and Annelise are wonderful hosts, full of information about where to go, what to see, and where to eat. Martha is also a great source of inside information. Social hour with drinks and snacks on the porch is a great way... More

What a great place! Jack and Annalise are the perfect innkeepers, and this is a gem of a B&B. The location can't be beat. The accommodations are lovely. Breakfast is delicious, and wine on the porch such a nice touch. Most of all it's the kind of place where the guests chat with one another and the hosts, but it's... More

This was our second time staying with Jack and Annelise (and Martha, Leanne, Frannie and Drifter). When we planned to head back to Charleston, we knew we wanted to stay here again, having had such a great experience on our first trip (May, 2011). We stayed in the Cypress Room, downstairs with a separate entrance, which is perfect for us... More

We recently visited Charleston for the first time and our stay at 15 Church street made our visit memorable.

We have enjoyed staying at B&B's and historic inns and hotels over the last 25 years or so in our travels across this Great Country and Canada. Some are more memorable than others. Far and away, 15 Church St B&B is the BEST we have ever experienced. Period. Bar none! It IS the home of Jack and Annelise Simmons, and... More

We stayed at the 15 Church Street B&B recently (late March 2012). The other reviewers are correct--this place is excellent! The location is perfect in the historic district, walking distance to almost everything. And the hosts, Jack and Annelise Simmons, are wonderful! Very gracious and welcoming. True Southern hospitality. Before even arriving in Charleston, Jack gave me suggestions about where... More

There is a reason 15 Church Street is the top rated B&B on Trip Advisor... actually many reasons. The house, accommodations, location, and hospitality cannot be beat. The house and accommodations are very nice, a traditional Charleston "single house" with double piazza (porch). Secondly, the house is in a great location - right in the battery. You are within 15...

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
