Reviewed June 14, 2013

our lst time to charleston and i would recommend this city to anybody. completing this wonderful experience were our hosts for the b/b Jack and Annelise Simmons

they served a wonderful breakfast every morning and in the eve we were on the porch or piazza with them and other guests for wine and cheese.

we didn't have a car, so unsolicited, they dropped us off at various restaurants and other sites.

very walkable town. their recommendations for restaurants were xlnt, each declared as our favorite, until we went to the next one. end of stay, we said "high cotton' restaurant was our very favorite-among our favorites.

entering this restaurant was a step back in time. they had a singer and pianist to complete the dining experience. ambiance bar none

our hosts treated everyone as family and were helpful in so many ways, even fixing my broken sunglasses

i highly recommend this bed and breakfast as well as a trip to charleston

Room Tip: i had the rose room with view of charleston harbor

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days in early May and had an excellent time. Jack and Annelise as well as Martha and Leanne were helpful not only before we arrived with recommendations about the local area but as as well offered us warm southern hospitality while we stayed with them. The location was perfect if you love history and we went on several historical walking tours. We especially liked the large porch where we could relax and hang out in the late afternoons. We will definitely come again.

We have stayed at this lovely, historic, elegantly restored and well maintained B&B twice now. First time was in 2006 and most recently, the weekend of 5/10-12/2013. It is better than ever. Jack and Annelise continue to treat their guests as if they are family.

Jack knows the best restaurants and parking do's and don'ts while Annelise knows what special sights there are to see and what things are best to do and best to avoid. The breakfasts are special and cocktail hour is a great chance to relax and enjoy everyone's company.

It is always a memorable experience at 15 Church in one of the most beautiful cities in America. We'll be staying there again on our next trip.

Room Tip: We always stay on the top floor in the Rose room that has a beautiful view of the Cooper River. Wal...

We arrived in Charleston during a horrific storm but once inside the doors of this beautiful B & B we felt immediately warmed and welcomed by the hospitable house manager. Her introduction to this beautiful city with terrific suggestions made us eager to explore (even in the rain). The location is perfect; on a charming quiet street but close enough to walk to every part of the historic district. The Southern "social hour" was fantastic-so relaxing and a great way to connect with other guests and exchange information. Each room in the house as well as the outside garden is exquisite. We can't wait to return to Charleston and plan to stay at 15 Church St.

Room Tip: The third floor involves climbing up two flights of stairs so pack lightly if you stay there; howeve...

Mu husband and I enjoyed every minute of our stay at this charming, peaceful B&B . It was in a very convenient location and near all. The innkeepers added to the charm as did the lovely super friendly Martha. The innkeepers even made arrangements for our early arrival and late departure. We loved the friendly pets as well. We stayed in the Cyprus room which was cozy and had a private entrance for several nights and one night in the blue room. The stairs are quite steep to the blue room. Sitting on the porch in the late afternoon with the breezes was delightful and very relaxing.

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.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this fabulous B and B to celebrate our anniversary. We frequently choose B and Bs because of the charm and warmth that can be found if you pick the right one. We hit the Jackpot! First, let me say that Jack and Annelise could not have more welcoming. We also had the pleasure of getting to know Martha and Leanne. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Drifter, the stately cat and Franny, the sweetest and most laid-back Lab that ever lived.

Our room was the Blue Room upstairs. It was really beautiful and we loved the decor. The fire place at night was so cozy! I really can't believe that someone complained about the birth announcement on the wall! It's their child's room for goodness sake. The entire house is filled with gorgeous antiques and paintings as well beautiful contemporary art. Jack and Annelise clearly appreciate both! The breakfasts each day were delicious and we loved that they reused the cloth napkins held in antique silver napkin rings. The hosts value the earth and do their part to reduce and reuse. That being said, any guest can happily have their room serviced at any time. We loved that we had the privacy and chose not to have sheets changed, etc..We also try to be as "green" as possible. I might add that the linens were really nice and our bed was really comfy. Never once did it occur to me to feel uncomfortable that there weren't locks on the bedroom doors.

Annelise had a previously planned trip so we only had a couple of nights with her. We were sad to see her leave, but that meant that we got to know Martha better! What a treat. The social hour at 6 was a fantastic time to relax, and get to know everyone better(furry and otherwise). Each night around 7 :15 we'd head off on foot to one of the incredible restaurants that Charleston has to offer. If you're not in the mood to walk a pedi cab is a phone call away. Do your homework ahead so that you'll be assured a reservation at your restaurant of choice. Jack was a big help via email. We loved all of our meals and we stayed for 6 nights! Jack was also extremely helpful with other suggestions that made our visit memorable. We had a bit of a medical issue and Jack's knowledge and compassion will not be forgotten. I sincerely hope to return in the not too distant future and I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere but 15 Church Street!!
