If you want to really experience Charleston, then you need to make the decision to stay in one of the town's B&Bs in the Battery Row area. Battery Carriage House is reputed to be the most haunted of places in Charleston, but don't fret-I didn't see a spook anywhere, much to my dismay. It's haunted past is well documented, even on Ghost Adventures, but I wasn't lucky enough to experience the paranormal. What I did experience was a well-appointed room in what was the home's former kitchen basement. These rooms are exclusively king size and feature a shaded veranda complete with sitting area and surrounded by dripping trumpet vines and other flora and fauna. The Carriage House provides snacks and cocktails in the afternoon so you can stop in, pick up some wine and cheese and head back to the veranda to sit and watch the people go by. It is relatively quiet afternoons and evenings and the view overlooking Battery Park is just wonderful. From this location my husband and I walked the neighborhood which is a venture I highly suggest. It doesn't cost anything and you'll see the most beautiful homes and gardens on the east coast. All in all, I can't wait to go back!
