We had a family trip to Charleston and our experience with the Inn at Ion was overall great. The room was surprisingly spacious and clean. Surrounding area was nice and safe. We had no problem driving to downtown Charleston in a couple minutes, and the Inn was also minutes' drive to the murine museum. The only disappointment was that the wifi at Bond house was not working during our whole stay and the inn didn't further communicate with us after we report the problem to them.
My husband and I stayed in April and enjoyed the stay from beginning to end! We were greeted warmly by the gracious hosts who obviously take great pride in their lovely home. The artwork is amazing and the furnishings are equally impressive. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. They have a social hour on a peaceful porch which provided a relaxing opportunity to get to know the other guests and hosts. Cheese and crackers were provided-a nice touch. Unfortunately, I cannot drink or eat the food sue to food allergies but my husband enjoyed the nice touch. they even had beer on hand for those that drink. their son was very nice and interesting to chat with as well. The location is ideal. We felt safe walking around and were near many attractions and restaurants. We love Charleston and the B and B. We will be back! Thank you!
First time visitors to Beaufort. The Cuthbert House was a great location, walking distance to everything in the historic district. the staff was great and went out of their way to make us feel at home and enjoy our stay. Highly recommend and looking forward to our next visit.
I cannot begin to say what a wonderful weekend we had-it was though we were back in old Charleston and visiting a friend. The home itself is stunning and Ashley was so delightful-if only we could stay forever
Charming B&B. We stayed in a lovely room. There is a beautiful garden to sit and relax in. Enjoyed the afternoon wine gathering meeting other guests. Breakfast was filling and delicious. Staff was helpful with tidbits about Beaufort.
FIRST TRIP TO CHARLESTON. LOVED THE CITY & DIANE'S FOLKSY CHARM. NOTHING FANCY ABOUT THIS PLACE, BUT I CAME FOR THE CITY NOT THE ACCOMMODATIONS. ONLY 2 UNITS WHICH MADE FOR QUIET. TUCKED AWAY IN A GREAT HISTORIC DISTRICT WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO SMALL RESTAURANTS, BUSLINE, WATERFRONT/RAINBOW DISTRICT, & HOMES TO TOUR. DIANE WAS FULL OF INFORMATION ON WHAT TO SEE, WHERE TO GO, AND TOOK A GENUINE INTEREST IN OUR WELL BEING. TO TOP IT OFF SHE SERVED A FULL COURSE, DIFFERENT BREAKFAST ON THE PORCH EVERY MORNING, WITH SECONDS IF YOU WISHED. IF YOU DON'T NEED THAT MARBLE LOBBY "HOTEL" EXPERIENCE, THIS IS A LOW KEY ALTERNATIVE.
Our room was very private and very nice. The area was all newish construction including the bed and breakfast which we actually thought was nice. Good restaurants in very close walking distance. The breakfast was excellent. We will definitely think about going back!
Our stay was great and this is our second experience at the Inn. The rooms are beautiful and very well kept. One small issue. There were several water bugs in the bathroom. I guess that happens in the South with the extreme humidity and heat.
My wife and I had a great 3 night stay in May 2015. The breakfast is served in 3 courses and is excellent. The back porch is screened and overlooks the creek; perfect for enjoying an evening bottle of wine.
We loved this inn. So clean and full of character. Large room and spa-like bathroom. The only issue we had was running out of hot water in the morning while showering. This Inn is like home, but better! Super friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious, too. Nice area in a quaint upscale neighborhood. Just minutes away from downtown. Will definitely stay again on our next trip to Charleston.
My boyfriend and I spent spring break in Charleston and choose to say with Jack and Annelise because they spoke of giving their guests an experience (and no cheap wine) - we were so glad we made this choice. Every interaction we had with these delightful innkeepers and staff was not only pleasant but something we looked forward to each day. The Charleston social hour held daily on their veranda is not to be missed - it was a time to relax, enjoy, and gave gems of information from our hosts and other guests. Our room was clean and private and full of charm. We enjoyed watching the dolphins play in water - which is a 3 minute walk away. If we return to Charleston I promise we will be staying at 15 Church street. All the best to Jack & Annelise & their guest past and future. ~Becky Beth & Marc
We recently stayed with Jack and Annalise two nights. Not only is the home spectacular as well as the breakfast,but they were a wonderful couple to get to know. The nightly social hour is so relaxed and welcoming. A great chance to meet interesting new folks and learn about their adventures both in Charleston and elsewhere. Jack and my husband spent a perfect last night on the porch, discussing a wide range of deep topics. They provided us some wonderful memories of our visit.
Loved our stay at the Inn at Ion. The room was unique/clean/comfortable. Breakfast was great and provided an opportunity to meet the other guests. Great location-beautiful area and good proximity to Charleston.
The Cuthbert House Inn is a lovingly restored and maintained 1790 home. The rooms are spacious and interesting and the details are perfect. It's within easy walking distance to all of Beaufort. The breakfasts were exemplary and the 5:00 cocktail gatherings on the front porch or parlor were delightful as we got to know the owners and other guests. It was a delightful escape that we plan to do again.
We stayed two nights in the Federal Room. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. Our favorite event was the evening social hour where the staff prepared wonderful hor-devores and the owners of the Cuthbert House and the other guests shared great stories and offered advise on where to dine and what to do while visiting the area
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Palmer house. Location is in the quieter historical district and is perfectly situated to see Fort Sumter. With a park, restaurants, grocery store, and massive amounts of historic sites to see within walking distance this place is a hit. Local residents were very cordial and we felt like we were at home in Charleston. Nary a complaint comes to mind with any aspect of our trip. The home owners were more than friendly, even inviting us to chat and participate with personal events going on. True southern hopitality like we are used to. The breakfast every morning was a true southern breakfast. Ive often seen breakfast ruined but at the Palmer house bacon, eggs, grits, biscuits, fruit, etc are just what this southern gentleman grew up on. Staff was friendly, chatty, and very helpful. I could not have asked for more. Thank you so much Palmer House, a true southern peach of the southeast.
This was my first time staying at a b&b and I feel this was the perfect place to start! The innkeepers were so cordial and polite, the breakfast was outstanding, and the view was unconcompareable to any other place in Mt. Pleasant! I can't wait to find another reason to need Mt.Pleasant accommodations!!!
Our group of 4 women stayed atthe Cuthbert House in mid-April. Beautiful time of year, just missed the azalea blooms. Our stay at Cuthbert House was everything we hoped we would experience and way more. With 4 ladies our beautifully decorated room was quite large and had plenty of room for all of to get ready at the same time. The courtyard outside our suite was a gorgeous place to sit with a glass of wine and just "take in" all the deep southern charm and history Beaufort has to offer. The 5:00 wine and appetizers was just one of the extra personal touches the owners did for us. We felt like like special guests at this truly beautiful home. Will be coming back soon!
Don't miss this superbly run and accoutered Southern inn . The Civll War is represented in it's rooms as Sherman himself stayed here and feet across the street the Rhett brothers planned the secession , years previous . Oh my … But the inn stay itself is quiet and grand . Beaufort is quiet and grand , no praline and knickknack shops around the inn . Yet , with little effort you can tease out such history . Don't miss the beautiful St. Helena Church just up the street with British soldiers and Confederate veterans awaiting your visit . And the inn ? Rest on a porch at sunset and watch the swaying of the moss on the live oaks . Sherman himself didn't have the service and comfort that Maryann and Jeff provide daily . Expect pampered . Our favorite is the Coastal Room , so refreshing when on the road ; private and sensual . We have done B+B's since the mid '70's and this is the best .
Our recent 3 night stay in the Palmetto Room at Plantation Oaks Inn was wonderful. As our first trip to SC, we opted to stay in Mt. Pleasant and do a little more driving around the Islands rather than stay in downtown Charleston. We picked the perfect spot. Very quiet, clean, with a beautiful property. So close to everything we wanted to do. The breakfasts were amazing! We never left the Inn hungry! Steve, Phyllis and Shelley were so welcoming - they made us feel right at home. Thank you all for the perfect getaway!
I booked two nights here for my mother and I to have a weekend getaway and we had such a wonderful time. The Inn was beautiful and we loved our room. Everything was very comfortable. The breakfast each morning was tasty but I personally thought the portion size was a bit too small. I was still hungry afterwards. The location is walking distance to some things, so that is a plus. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to visit Beaufort.
My husband & I celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary at the Palmer House. We didn't tell anyone that it was our anniversary but our stay heremade the event even more memorable. The home is beautiful, the staff was friendly, & when sitting on the veranda with the breeze coming off the water, we felt like we had stepped back in history. It was a magical time. Not glitzy, just comfortable. Thank you, Palmer House staff.
Had a wonderful stay. Stayed in the Mariner room and was surprised at how large it was and had a beautiful view of the marshes. The king size bed was very comfortable. We slept like babies...especially after a day of adventure.
Very nice place with lovely decorations but not totally quiet as it is on the main street of town and is old and creaky. No choice of breakfast options, they serve you what is on the menu of the day.
My wife and I spent the night in room 6 and could not have been more satisfied. The room was immaculate and very well decorated and included a very spacious bathroom. The breakfast was one of the best I ever had. We are looking forward to our next visit.
We had a wonderful stay at the Cuthbert House. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We do not usually stay in B&B's, enjoyed the visits with other guests, in the morning at breakfast and the evening social hour. We loved Beaufort, it's history, beauty and activities. Looking forward to visiting again.
