Great experience to feel the city a little bit as a resident. The couple Jack and Annelise were hospitable and worried about all! In each detail we feel that! The mood was a warm family home with caring and delicious breakfast. The room we stayed was the cipress room, very confortable, rustic decoration, huge bed and huge space in the room. The bathtub and the shower also is very good and confortable.The house is near from the historic neighborhood, main streets, best bars and restaurants, we went to almost all places walking and that way you are going to see the most beautiful houses you never seen before.
- 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
