“Inviting Southern Hospitality!”
Reviewed August 21, 2007

My husband secretly planned a trip for the 2 of us for our 15 year wedding anniversary in June. He chose 15 Church Street B&B, Jack and Annelise's home. We couldn't have been more pleased! We were welcomed so warmly, and they even had champagne for us for our anniversary that evening! Jack made dinner reservations for us each night, more complementary champagne at the restaurants, and the best food ever! One morning we accompanied Annelise to find her favorite spot to purchase the sweetgrass baskets!

The house is in a perfect location, everything you need is provided for, within walking distance to all the historic sites, shopping, and Charleston Harbor.

The breakfasts were marvelous, you can choose what you want each morning from a menu the night before. This was our first taste of true Southern Hospitality and we loved it! We truly felt like very special guests in their home!

Stayed June 2007

My husband and I visited Charleston for the first time. We wanted to stay in a B&B so we could get a up close and personal feel for the city. Jack and Annelise Simmons made us feel right at home. They opened up their house to us, inviting us to join them on the porch for conversations. They recommended restaurants for dinner, their favorites, which we dined at. Wonderful choices. We walked all over the city. Their home is very conveniently located in the historical district. We had a wonderful time in Charleston. Pat and Jack

My wife and I went to Charleston for my 30th birthday and stayed here and loved it. I was near the Battery and all the places you really want to go in Charleston. On top of that the hosts were amazing and helped us in finding some of the best places to go to eat and see. I would recommend this place to anyone visting Charleston and if I ever get back this is where I will stay again.

Jack and Annalise were the most hospitable, friendly people. Their home was gorgeous, and impecably clean. Every night we were invited for cocktail hour and of course, we partook! My husband and I learned so much about Charleston from Jack and Annalise, and from their historic home in itself.

Not only will we go back to Charleston soon to visit the city, which we loved, but to visit 15 Church Street. You couldn't ask for a better location, right in the heart of historic Charleston, and nicer, more knowledgable house guests. We'll be back for sure, but will make sure to book in advance, because I'm sure we're not the only ones who had such a great time!

Zak and Sara

p.s. make sure to take up Jack and Annalises' dinner recommendations, they really know the city, and recommended some great 'local' restraunts that we loved!

Of all the many B& Bs we have been to this was the most beautiful and comfortable. Its location is perfect for all the walking tours through town. It is close to the water where you can observe beautiful sunsets. Above all, the owners, Jack and Anneliese Simmons were the most friendly and gracious hosts we have ever met.

On our first trip to a Southern city, we really wanted to meet some local people and experience the famed southern hopsitality. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of the Phillips-Yates-Snowden House bed and breakfast located at 15 Church Street in Charleston. It is run by Dr. Jack Simmons and his wife Annalise who are wonderful Southern hosts providing great advice on all the sites of Charleston over breakfast and afternoon cocktails. They really cared about our holiday and made every effort to make it special. They are very knowledgeable about the history of their beautiful home and the history of the area which made for delightful conversations. The B and B is located in the historic Battery district of Charleston and is steps away from the coolling breezes of the sea wall. It is a comfortable and safe six block walk through an incredible neighbourhood filled with historic homes to the downtown restaurants and shops. The two upstairs rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious and beautifully decorated with antiques and art. The carriage house is huge and comfortable. The full southern breakfasts served in their beautiful dining room include excellent pancakes, hominy, grits, frittata etc. If you want to feel like a house guest and not just a tourist, this is the place to stay.
