We were headed to Charleston for the Spring Home & Garden tours and usually stay in town but wanted to try something different this year. We think the Maverick group does a great job so decided to stay at their inn just 15 minutes or so from downtown in Mt. Pleasant. This is a lovely old inn and we had a wonderful room & bath with heart pine floors but do be prepared to do a couple of long flights of stairs. Not a problem for us but maybe for some. They do have an elevator but request you use that for luggage only. We also judge an inn by how comfortable the beds are and we compliment them on their great mattress. We say that as we both have bad backs and walked at least five miles each day & awoke refreshed & ready to go each morning. The staff was friendly & accommodating and we look forward to a return trip.
By the way the Inn has a restaurant. We had dinner there our first evening. I just love Beef Carpacio but am very careful where I order it - again knowing the Maverick restaurants, I decided to try it -Wonderful!! I followed that up with their Veggy dish and that was superb as well!! My husband enjoyed a soup and hamburger.
Lastly, we stopped by the bar late one evening on our return from Charleston & enjoyed a cocktail before bed.
Only weakness was the breakfast. We were excited to see scones our first morning but they were stale & enedible. The fruit was fresh & good as well as the yogurt - but by our third morning their was no yogurt and little else - disappointing.
