What a wonderful three days! Our host, Julie was perfect. She made great quiche; provided bottled water, other essentials and fine fruit. She even made our check-out very convenient in connection with our flight schedule. The Carrage House is charming and has all the things one needs. The books and history associated with the property were most interesting and information.... More

Excellent location and fun tie in to the historic Edmonton-Alston House made it memorable. We stayed in old Slave Quarters which was set up with 2 bedrooms on the upstairs and kitchen lounge area downstairs. Gas fireplace downstairs and in one bedroom, 2nd bedroom had a jacuzi bathtub. Julie supplied a home cooked quiche daily along with banana bread cake... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We stayed in the carriage house (separate from the main house). It is absolutely gorgeous and so spacious. I cannot say enough about this historically decorated home overlooking a lovely garden just steps away from the battery. Not only is the location perfect, Julie,... More

This is an opportunity that should not be missed. The B&B accommodation is in a separate house at the rear of the unique Edmonston-Alston House on the Battery waterfront. The accommodation is beautifully arranged over 2 floors with a superb bedroom and large lounge. The kitchen is great and is located alongside a wonderful dining room on the ground floor.... More

We have been to Charleston many times and have stayed at a variety of hotels and B&Bs. 21 East Battery was our favorite by far, and Julie the innkeeper was a huge reason! We arrived late and found she had lit the fireplace for us and left a yummy banana bread for us as well as breakfast items for the... More

The B&B is very quiet and convenient, a short 10 minute walk to most of the attractions in Charleston. The B&B is located in an area of stately homes and is in a prime location, in fact a new television show was being filmed one block over during our stay. Across the street from the B&B is the battery and... More

This B&B has unique accommodations, the first floor has a Kitchenette and sitting area with a tv and very comfortably fits two couples. The second floor has two large rooms with private baths. So my wife and I and ours friends spent two very comfortable nights here. The location is perfect right across from Charleston harbor and only a short... More

My husband and I stayed in the Carriage House at 21 East Battery for our 20th wedding anniversary and we seriously didn't want to leave! The house is absolutely beautiful!

We stayed in the carriage house for our honeymoon. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! The carriage house is beautiful and convenient to everything. Julie was so sweet and even provided us with a congratulatory honeymoon cake. We couldn't be happier with the experience, and we will definitely be back next time we visit Charleston. Highly recommend!
