Beautiful House, Wonderful Owners and Perfect Location
on May 21, 2015
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!
We fell in love with the beautiful B&B - and learned to relax

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.

A delightful stay
on May 10, 2015
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.
An Absolute Delight

Recently (March 2015) we had the pleasure of staying at the Phillips-Yates-Snowden House and experiencing the gracious hospitality of Jack and Annelise Simmons. The charming house is impeccable in every respect and there could not be a more attentive and charming host and hostess.
The bedrooms are roomy and very comfortable, the well appointed living room is inviting, the formal dining room luxurious, but the very unique and spotless kitchen, the nerve center of the operation, tops it all. Guests are made to feel like family and greeted every evening around 6 with a welcoming 'happy hour' of drinks and snacks. And the breakfast is customized to one's taste.
Highly highly recommended - you shouldn't miss the experience!!
Delightful House, delightful innkeepers

Having misspent our youth in Charleston, gotten engaged there and returned as often as possible in the ensuing years, my wife and I consider ourselves somewhat knowledgeable about the city. However, we recently spent our 45th wedding anniversary at 15 Church Street and fell in love all over again--with each other and Charleston! Jack and Annelise Simmons could not have been more charming or accommodating, and we enjoyed their company so much it was difficult to leave the social hour each evening for our dinner reservations! The room was comfortable and inviting, breakfast was delicious and came with lively conversations on a variety of topics guaranteed feed the body and the mind! We certainly hope to return soon, and often.

The Highpoint of our Vacation
on January 05, 2015
We stayed at this excellent B&B over the New Year's holiday. My family fell in love with Jack and Annelise, Drifter, Clarence, Frannie and the charming Martha. This family does it right in every way- beautiful surroundings, excellent service and an authentically "homelike" experience- only even better! The social hour was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with our hosts who are extremely informative as well as warm, witty and engaging people. We found the Charleston experience very positive with our stay at the Simmon's B.&B. a rare and memorable highpoint. ( We miss them!) Highly recommended!!
Warm and Welcoming Bed and Breakfast
on November 17, 2014
We stayed at the very welcoming Phillips-Yates-Snowden House in November, for 4 nights. Let me just say that we wished it were longer. We stayed in the Rose Room that was cozy and private. A heartfelt thank you to Jack and Annelise for making a home away from home such a warm and welcoming experience. Each time we entered their home they greeted us with a smile and always wanted to know about our day. I have never met a more hospitable couple. We so enjoyed the warm and caring hospitality of Martha, who was so sweet. I loved her cranberry muffins and asked for the recipe. We were served a delicious breakfast every morning by the always smiling Julie. Sorry we missed the famous Jack's pancakes on Sunday. We will save that for our next visit. Also, a special mention to Franny, Drifter and Clarence for their furry welcome. Charleston is so beautiful and filled with the most lovely people. Our only stay in Charleston will be at The Phillips-Yates-Snowden House.
Wonderful Place to Stay!

This charming, comfortable Bed and Breakfast is located in a wonderful, quiet location. We stayed in the Carriage House, which we thoroughly enjoyed, and found to be immaculately clean. Jack and Annelise are warm, wonderful hosts, and their friends Martha and Julie (who help them) are equally welcoming. The welcoming committee is completed by their well-behaved pets, Frannie (dog), Drifter, and Clarence (cats)! Breakfast is delicious, and the social hour is relaxed and pleasant. Jack and Annelise have interesting stories to share, and are more than willing to help with dinner reservations, advice on restaurants and places to see, plus historical information about Charleston. In addition, they seem genuinely interested in learning about their guests. If you are looking for a place where you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend, 15 Church Street is the place for you! You will find yourself looking forward to a future return.

We stayed at the Phillips-Yates-Snowden House (15 Church Street) in September, in the Rose Room. The bed and breakfast, its owners and its staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We felt comfortable from the start, as if we were visiting friends who happened to live in a beautiful house filled with history and charm. That includes the two cats and one dog that call the place home. The social hour each night added something special to our stay, and one of the best aspects of the visit was the chance to talk with Jack and Annelise and learn about Charleston. And while the stairs to the third floor are many and steep, the Rose Room was worth the climb - large, attractive, spotless and private. The location is perfect for visiting the many sites within walking distance, and it's a block from the Battery. We wish we could have stayed longer, and hope to return.
Wish I had stayed here

I was meeting some College girlfriends for a reunion to celebrate all of us turning 60. We planned this trip several month ago and had discussed staying at the Phillips-Yates-Snowden House, but decided on another B&B. Because it seems that I am an air head, I got it in my mind that we were staying at the Phillips-Yates-Snowden House and gave that address to my cab driver at the airport. Upon my arrival, I entered the home and was met by Jack Simmons. I gave him my name and told him I had reservations along with my friends. He was very confused as he did not have reservations for any of us. I called my friend and found that I was at the wrong B&B. I was mortified and embarrassed and I had to admit to Jack what had happened, Jack was very relieved that it was not him that had made an error in my reservation. Jack was so gracious and kind. I asked if he would call me a cab and I would be on my way ( I really wanted to just sink into the ground as I felt so foolish). Jack would not hear any of it, he lugged my (very heavy) suitcase back down the steps and drove me to the other B&B. We had such a nice chat in the car, he could not have been more accommodating. Talk about Southern charm! I was so very impressed and grateful to him for making such an awkward situation feel so much better. I was only at his establishment for a short time, but could clearly see what a beautiful home it was and felt that if he treated me so well, how wonderful his guests were treated. Please know that the next time I return to Charleston (and I will) I most definitely stay at this most welcoming home. Thank you Jack.
