“Stay here.”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

Chose 15 Church Street because of all of the Trip Adviser reviews. And boy are we glad we did. Jack and Annelise were great hosts and we feel we got a great sense of Charleston from visiting with them when we arrived and every evening during their cocktail social hour. Room was clean and comfortable and sitting on the large porch for morning coffee was a great way to start the day. Location was perfect, away from the hustle and bustle.

The Snowden-Yates-Simmons Bed and Breakfast at 15 Church Street provides the quintessential Southern experience to its guests. The historic home is beautiful, the hospitality is warm, and its located in the wonderful South-of Broad district. My friends and I enjoyed the Carriage House, with its cozy fireplace and comfortable bedrooms. A lovely breakfast is provided each morning. The hosts are charming and generous with advise and help for vacationing tourists.

We were treated like cherished guests from the moment we crossed the threshold into this charming home. We were escorted into their living room and offered refreshments and good stories about Charleston. The rooms we had (Carriage House) were perfect for three old college friends traveling on a "yaya" trip. Jack, Annelise and Martha checked often to make sure we had everything we needed. They made restaurant recommendations and reservations for us. The breakfast and evening social hour were a joy as we got to hear the "stories of the day" from the other guests. Staying at this home was as enjoyable as Charleston itself.

We couldn't have asked for kinder and more welcoming hosts than Jack and Annelise, assisted by Martha. This was our first trip to Charleston, and we felt right at home at 15 Church Street. This lovely period house is located on a brick-paved street in the oldest residential section of the city, close by water and many stately mansions open for tours. We enjoyed the company of the other guests very much, and a highlight of each day was socializing over breakfast in the morning and over drinks in the evening. Jack and Annelise went out of their way to help us get the most out of our visit. We highly recommend 15 Church Street!

My husband and I chose this Bed and Breakfast after reading all the reviews posted on tripadvisor, which rated it as the number one place to stay in Charleston. Well, I can't judge that because I have not stayed anywhere else, but it was a wonderful stay. The room we stayed in was the Cypress, which is on the first floor, so it is quiet and secluded, and has a private entrance. It was comfortably and elegantly furnished, without being opulent.
Our hosts Jack and Annelise were away when we arrived, but we were received by Martha, who is perhaps the most charming lady we have ever met, and Fran the dog. All the reviews talk about Jack and Annelise, and I think Martha has been sadly omitted, because she is awesome! She quickly made us feel welcome and recommended an excellent place to have dinner (Gaulart & Maliclet French Cafe). The next day, we met Jack and Annelise, who are really warm and hospitable folks.
We had a wonderful day touring Charleston, thanks to some great recommendations by Annelise and Martha, and a great social hour where we enjoyed some good conversation with Jack, Annelise, Martha and their friends.
Thanks for making our anniversary so special!

Five friends who have known each other for about fifty years visited Annelise and Jack in their beautiful home on 15 Church Street. The home is beautiful, the hospitality is gracious and the location is perfect. I can't imagine a better place to stay in all of Charleston!!! Born and raised in Charleston, Jack, and his wife Annelise are very knowledgeable and truly make the city come alive with history and suggestions for tours and restaurants. Happy hour is delightful and breakfasts are delicious with choices such as Hominy Surprise and Fluffy Virginia Pancakes. We had the most memorable and perfect weekend imaginable!!!

Jack and Annalise Simmons invite you into their home, and it's truly lovely. My daughter and I extend our trip so we could enjoy it a bit longer! The location is perfect - quiet and safe and surrounded by the most beautiful houses in Charleston. Jack and Annalise pointed us to great restaurants and sights. To top it all off, we enjoyed cocktail hour each evening in front of the fire. A great experience.
