We just returned from a 3 night stay at 15 Church St (Rose room). Annelise and Jack were great hosts - social hour on the porch for all the guests, suggestions for restaurants and activities, providing history of the house and neighborhood. It felt like we were staying with family. Rose room is large and comfortable, with a nice view of the river and neighborhood. Good breakfast with several choices available. Beautiful house in a perfect Charleston neighborhood. Within walking distance of many sights or the trolley for places farther up. Off street parking is available but can be congested if you need to use your car during your stay (not a necessity with this location). We hope to return soon and expect to see Fran and Drifter waiting for us! Thanks, Jack and Annelise, for a great trip!
- 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 Yates family constructed the present 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 its Adam style paneling by Thomas Pinckney and ironwork by Charleston ironwright, Philip Simmons, his most recent addition (1998) being the basement gate at the front. The Earthquake of 1886 leveled the 4th story, which was rebuilt with a Mansard roof. Subsequent to this, the structure was reinforced with "earthquake rods", bolts running through the house between the exterior walls. Almost 100 years later, in bringing the structure up to code, this same technology was used with the addition of nine more bolts. (Rates: $225.00-325.00) ... more less
