We are certainly glad we didn't read "Never to Return" before staying at this B&B or we would have missed a real gem! Charleston is one of our favorite cities and we visit there often. Lavender and Lace is in a great location and Judy was all that one could wish for in a in a B&B hostess. She was very informative about where to eat, what to see and do and where not to go. We really enjoyed the several resturants she recommened, High Cotten being our favorite. She was always making sure we were having a good time and asking if there was anything else we needed.
Lavender and Lace is advertized as serving a continental breakfast, so we expected the usual, coffee, cereal, and a muffin. We were pleasantly surprised to find all kinds of fresh baked goodies, fruits, bagels, and the best brownies in town.
We have always enjoyed walking the streets and enjoying the beautiful homes, but this trip we were able to use the bikes that were provided, so we saw twice as much.
As for the odor of cats???? My wife is allergic to cats and had no problems at all! This B&B was spotless inside and out.
We have already booked another room for the spring of 2008!
