“"Didn't want to leave"”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I stayed in the Carriage House at 21 East Battery for our 20th wedding anniversary and we seriously didn't want to leave! The house is absolutely beautiful! The inn keeper, Julie, was so welcoming and pampered us with delicious treats each day! The location of the house is close enough to walk to all of the amazing Charleston restaurants and attractions but far enough away to be private and quiet. We loved everything about this place!

We stayed in the carriage house for our honeymoon. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!! The carriage house is beautiful and convenient to everything. Julie was so sweet and even provided us with a congratulatory honeymoon cake. We couldn't be happier with the experience, and we will definitely be back next time we visit Charleston. Highly recommend!

I can not think of a better place to stay to experience this beautiful and historic city. The four of us stayed for three wonderful days in The Quarters and totally enjoyed the experience. The rooms are lovely and immaculate and the location of 21 East Battery could not be better. We parked the car and never used it the whole time we were there. We walked everywhere. It was a peaceful, quiet respite from the busy city outside it's grounds. However, as wonderful as all this is, what makes it work is Julie, the innkeeper, who truly has found her calling. She is the perfect hostess, quietly pampering and taking care of her guests needs. She even went out of her way to accommodate a special need we had regarding check in and tours we had booked. Also, as others have mentioned, the treats were spectacular and so fun to come home to. We have stayed at other top tier hotels in the historic district, but this is where we will return to in the future.....don't hesitate.

We just loved our stay at 21 East Battery--the Carriage House was so lovely and comfortable. We really felt at home thanks to Julie and her excellent and personal customer service. She and my husband conspired even before we arrived to make the most of Charleston's Restaurant Week and Julie had printed menus and directions waiting for us when we checked in. Although, her cooking was worth staying in for--the banana bread and quiche she made and left for us were delicious! The accommodations were immaculate, and Julie came in (undetected) to tidy up every time we went out. We really felt like welcomed guests in her home!

We loved the location, also. Once we parked the car we didn't get back in it for the rest of our stay. We were able to walk to every attraction that struck our fancy.

We hope to return every year and we'd enthusiastically recommend the Carriage House--and Julie!

Staying at 21 East Battery B&B made our first visit to Charleston very enjoyable. It was good to be within walking distance of the many sights to see and places to visit in Charleston. Our accommodations in the Quarters were comfortable and interesting because of the history of the property. Julie, the innkeeper, was so helpful making the reservation and in many ways during our stay. We had a great experience!

Room Tip: The Quarters are quiet with parking at the door.

We hit the jackpot with our choice of 21 Battery as our introduction to Charleston. We stayed in the Quarters and what a pleasant surprise to find we had our own little apartment. Julie greeted us promptly and spent as much time as we needed to give us maps as well as tours and restaurant recommendations. It is quite evident that she enjoys her job and wants to make sure you want for nothing. Every day we came home to a different homemade treat that were all fabulous. I agree wholeheartedly with the positive sentiments and experience of the other reviewers. When we come back to Charleston, it will be here.

My fiance and I spent a weekend in the Carriage House. It was absolutely beautiful and we had a real sense of history while staying there. The innkeeper, Julie was fantastic at accommodating our every need and being extremely hospitable. We were welcomed with an assortment of baked goods and immaculate upkeep of the house. Each day we returned after touring the city, we felt like we were coming home to peace and quiet. You can easily unwind with a cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine on the porch of the Carriage House or on the piazza of the Edmondston-Alston house. The location of the house was perfect as it was only a 5-10 minute walk from some of the best restaurants and shops in Charleston. Not to mention the property overlooks the water with a view of Fort Sumter. We received a free tour to the Edmondston-Alston House of which the Carriage House serviced back in the 1820's. If you want to experience Charleston and all of its grandeur, definitely stay here, you won't regret it!
