21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 39 Charleston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Julie made everything easy and inviting for our stay in the "quarters". The B&B was quiet, clean, and we felt right at home. She left us home made cookies and helped us find a great restaurant to eat at. The location of the B&B is fantastic and the off street parking is a huge plus.

Our stay was planned at the last minute, but we were made to feel very welcomed. My husband and I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing get away in Charleston.

When we arrived, we couldn't believe our eyes. We thought we've just booked a room but it turned out to be a whole house, living room including a steinway piano, kitchen, bedroom, 2 bathrooms, upstairs living. It was incredible, cosy, charming. It is situated in the lovely garden of the main house which is right at the ocean side. Because of our jet lag we enjoyed an amazing sun rise. Julie cooked us a delicious breakfast and advised us about the best sites to go see. It was a completely romantic experience for our wedding anniversary. Definitely returning.

Room Tip: The house were the stables, the slave quarters are in the main house and a little bit smaller, but s...

My wife and I picked Charleston for a short post Christmas getway. We stayed in the Quarters at the 21 E. Battery Bed and Breakfast and it was wonderful. Located on the water on Charleston's East Battery my wife and I loved our stay. We were within walking distance of everything and the dining in Charleston is some of the best that we have ever had. Included in the great dining experience were the breakfasts that Julie the InnKeeper had prepared for us each night for the next, they were outstanding. Would highly recommend this location.

Thank you for pointing out the close proximity to most of Charleston's fine dining experiences, most within walking distance from the B&B! That amenity, off-street parking and a complimentary tour of the Edmondston-Alston House makes this the best valued B&B in Charleston!

My wife and I stayed in the carriage house behind the Edmundston-Austin House and had a wonderful experience. The house is HUGE, about 2100 sq. ft.. The first floor has a handsome (and hideable0 kitchenette and a large dining room; an entry with a grand piano, and a living room and study alcove. the second floor has a landing with a desk area, another family/living room area and, of course, the bedroom and bath. Because this is a renovation of an old carriage house, the original timbers form the ceilings and the wood flooring and; exposed brick are gorgeous. Located just east of the Battery, it is within walking distance of everything in the South of Broad and Somewhat North of Broad areas. Julie, our hostess, was warm and friendly -- a Yankee converted to Southern life.

Room Tip: This is for a quiet getaway -- meaning that while it's within walking distance of great restaura...

21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast couldn't be better located or more authentic. We stayed in the old slave quarters which have been beautifully restored. Julie surprised us with delicious home made cakes and biscuits each day and helpful advice on this lovely historic town. Will recommend to everyone!

We spent 4 days here in December, everything was absolutely perfect. It was so special to stay on the property of one of the beautiful mansions on the Battery. The location is perfect for exploring, shopping and visiting all of the wonderful Charleston restaurants. Our host, Julie was exceptional, her breakfasts and treats were delicious, and she even surprised us with a birthday cake upon returning home one evening. We stayed in the Quarters, which is spacious and very comfortable, and Julie took us to see the Carriage House which is gorgeous! We will definitely stay here again when we return to Charleston
