We were very fortunate to find this B & B on Trip Advisor and only wished we had been able to stay more than one night. Jack was very helpful when we booked the reservation and offered us several options. We stayed in the Cypress Room on the first floor which is a delightful, spacious room with a fireplace and private bath. It also has its own entrance on the first floor. The property is within easy walking distance of the waterfront and many of Charleston sights. It is also close to Patriot's Point golf course which provides a wonderful views of the harbor. We would recommend this course and the scenery it provides.
We enjoyed chatting with Jack, Annelise and other guests during the social hour and really enjoyed the wine and snacks. They offer three different kinds of wine, beer and soda for your enjoyment. Annelise took time to share the important sights of Charleston and the walking tour map. It was our anniversary and Jack made reservations for us at Carolina's Bistro. It was an outstanding recommendation within a ten minute walk. The food and ambiance were wonderful. It was one of the best meals we have had.
We were able to select our breakfast entree choice from four different options. We had the frittata which was delicious. The house is filled with antiques and special memorabilia from the family. They have a friendly cat and dog and are very welcoming innkeepers.
We only wished we had been able to stay longer and hope to return in the future.
- 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. ... more less
