“Wonderful B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2010

We stayed in Charleston for 4 days. Don't make the mistake we made - wait to go to the visitors bureau after you talk to the owners of the 15 Church Street B&B - Jack and Annalese. Their input was great. The visitors bureau go to only when you know what you want to do. Loved this B&B. I just can't say enough about it. Warm, comfortable people. Great suggestions for food (although we were not as hot on Hominy and Grits as they were). We had the best time here and they made us feel at home. Great area. Quiet. At night the streets are rolled up. We took a pedicab one night and all you could hear was the horse on the cobblestones. Easy to catch the trolly to go places. Met wonderful other guests too.

True Southern hospitality... B&B hosts Jack and Annelise Simmons could not have been more gracious, warm and helpful during our recent stay at 15 Church Street. When reading the Trip Advisor reviews before our trip, I could not believe that ALL of the reviews for this B&B and its hosts could possibly be true because everyone has an off day (I thought, surely no one can be this consistently fantastic...), but I am thrilled to report that all the glowing reports are accurate!

15 Church Street is a very comfortable and inviting B&B, with peacefulness and privacy when you want it and social time when you prefer that instead. The optional informal happy hour each night on the side porch was a great touch. You do truly feel like you are an extended family member eagerly welcomed for a visit as you sit on the back porch or the dining room and hear all the tales of their fair city from Jack and Annelise (and sometimes a friend or two!).

The location was convenient for walking to more great restaurants than you can count (ask your hosts for recommendations - they won't steer you wrong), and the view from the Rose Room onto the water was spectacular as the sun rose in the morning. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms spacious, and the whole house was very clean.

My sister and I were there for a girls' weekend away from our families and had a great time. We would highly recommend staying at 15 Church Street, and will surely do so whenever we are fortunate enough to return to this charming Southern city.

Charleston is a beautiful place with outstanding architecture. This is a lovely old historic building with superb rooms. Jack & Annalise are extremely friendly & welcoming couple who were excellent hosts.
We had a wonderful time in Charlseston & would definitely like to return some day.

We stayed here in October 2009 (apologies for how long it has taken to write this review!). What a fantastic B&B - we have traveled around the country and this is definitely at the top. It's the personalized care that Jack and Annelise give to their guests that makes this place stand out. Great drinks and conversation in the evenings, and they really go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay. It's conveniently located, and they can suggest restaurants, sights etc. Thanks so much, Jack and Annelise.

Lovely Old town house, with plenty of character, in an area which had a nice feel about it, an exclusivity is the best way I could describe it. We arrived very late and me and my wife smile when we think of a sleepy jack greeting us and almost sleep walking, but still having the time to pull me a pint from his own beer tap before bed. I believe it was the carriage house we stayed in which although basic was very big overall, would be ideal for a family of 4 and excellent value at only $225 a night. Tasty breakfast and the other guests their that morning were the sort of people I would have like to have shared a beer with and got to know better that evening but unfortunatley we had to leave. Annelise and Martha were also very civilised and a delight. Thank you for having us.

Our June stay with Jack and Annelise was absolutely delightful! They both went far beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was "the best". Charleston is so blessed to have them working in the community~they care so much about Charleston, and help visitors with much needed information. Thank you J and A for wonderful memories, we hope to return soon. The OK, KS, and CA sisters.

15 Church Street Bed and Breakfast is wonderful! I write a blog about how customers should be treated, and Jack and Annelise Simmons have perfected the craft so well that it inspired me to write a blog post about it!

http://info.livelogic.net/customer-intelligence-project-success/bid/45613/Bed-and-Breakfast-Inspiration-for-Customer-Relationship

Yes, a blog posting could be conceived of as a dorky way to communicate a review of a B&B, but I'm a dork. In a nutshell, my review: This bed and breakfast is an example of where the proprietors make the experience. The house: great. The location: great. The breakfast: great. But the hosts and the experience with them? True genius. I'd go so far as to say that I would recommend making sure that you stay with them when you know Jack and Annelise will be in town (though their friend Martha is wonderful, too).

All in all, there is a reason they are so positively reviewed, and my wife and I can't wait to go back!
