We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Annelise and Jack and their family, friends and feline and canine charges. We felt like family, immediately welcomed into their home, joining in with other guests at breakfast which was ample and served to suit our tastes and schedule. The room we stayed in was comfortable and spacious. Their home is beautifully furnished and the walls are filled with wonderful art ( some of it by their very talented precocious children, who are now full grown). Parking was not a problem, and Jack was able to help us out when it was necessary to move from the street. The location is excellent- you are very close to the park at the end of the peninsula and a pleasant few blocks walk away from many of Charleston's attractions. We had wonderful conversations, learned some Charleston history, and received excellent tips on where to dine and how best to make the most of our time. We also appreciate their eco-friendly policies. We intend to return and are so grateful to have found such warm, kind, gentle hosts whom we now happily count as good friends.
- 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
