About

The Inn at I'On a seven room Boutique Inn as well as a 100 seat full service restaurant and bar. The Jacob Bond House is a "French Quarter" style stucco carriage house complete with a beautiful walled courtyard with fountian, wrought iron gates, balconies and all the charm of a bit of New Orleans right here in Charleston. Located right across the street from the main Inn it features 4 separate rooms one of which is a 2 1/2 room suite. The Inn is located in the award winning I'on community in Mt Pleasant SC only seven minutes from historic downtown Charleston and ten minutes from the beaches of Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms. Although the look and feel of the Inn will remind you of an Inn that is decades old the building has just been completed in 2009. Unlike most small intimate boutique Inns where you sacrifice amenities for charm rest assured this is not the case at the Inn at I'On. With our on site restaurant, Carter's Kitchen featuring the food of Charleston Celebrity Chef Robert Carter, you have several dining options without leaving the property. Complimentary full service gourmet breakfast is included with your room Tues thru Sunday, there is no breakfast served on Monday. Preferred seating in the dining room for dinner is also available. Our Inn guests are also members for the day at the private I'On Club featuring three swimming pools, seven lighted clay tennis courts, fitness center, club house and many special services.

Old World Quality

4.0 on September 29, 2014

This inn was constructed just a few years ago, but the use of hardwoods for floors and details, the size of our room, the furniture (no press board!) and lighting made it feel like an authentic building with all the modern amenities. We are not connoisseurs of old properties, but it had a really great feeling, and I would recommend it again.


LOVED it!

I loved the Inn at I'On. My room was so beautiful, smelled good, and was very clean! I wanted for nothing. Perfect place to spend my Anniversary! The food was awesome and prompt every morning...and tasted wonderful. I really have no complaints except that my toilet seat was a little loose, so I felt like I was gonna fall off every time I used the bathroom, hahaha. But I just took it in stride. The bath was huge with a lovely rain shower head, water was hot, towels were plentiful, extra blanket in the armoire, Room was nice and cool, and the plantation shutters were beautiful. I really just loved it. Two thumbs up guys!! Keep up the good work!


A bittersweet stay.

Great food and people. But the room I was in Bond room number 8 was on the ground floor of a strip mall with multiple windows affronting the strip mall. This made it loud and bright for most of my stay. The room was also located a block away from the "dining area" which was somewhat inconvienent.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for you input and we are certainly thrilled you enjoyed our food and staff...Like most Bed and Breakfast Inns we have multiple rooms (11 rooms)and they are all different...The room you stayed in room 8 is not our best but still a very nice room it is however our least expensive room..That is the only room that fronts the street and all the other rooms at the Jacob Bond House are our best rooms...It is located directly across the small common green space of Ion square from the main Inn...about 50 yards ...for you golfers about a half sandwedge away....


Great Experience

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast. The room was lovely, spacious, and cozy. The bathroom was large and the shower was wonderful. It's location was nice and close to everything. The breakfast was good, but not great. I would stay there again.


Nice Find in Mt. Pleasant

4.0 on September 16, 2014

Stayed at The Inn at Ion for 4 nights last week. Had a delightful stay. The location is in the quiet development of I'ON in Mt Pleasant, a quick 10 minute drive to Charleston. Room was very nice. The restaurant is closed except for breakfast, but the breakfast is outstanding. I took advantage of the Ion Club which has a pool, tennis courts, and a very nice workout facility. We didn't have any service needs, but the front desk is only open after 3:00. But, the manager is only a phone call away. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable stay with a great breakfast, The Inn ant I'ON is a great place.


Great bed and breakfast in cute town.

It was my first time at the Inn. We will be back. My son lives in Mt. Pleasant - Braemore. His house was full so stayed at inn. Was within walking distance and made it all easy. Room was very comfortable.


Wonderful place to stay when visiting Charleston!

5 on September 11, 2014

My girlfriend and I chose Inn at Ion when visiting Charleston SC because it seemed convenient & afdordable. I have to tell you it really exceeded our expectations in every way! First off when we arrived in our room that was across from the inn at the Bond House we were very impressed. My girlfriend immediately went to the bathroom to the big bear tub! I was impressed by the size of the room and the gorgeous but non working fireplace that I had brought candles to fill with and that worked fine! Has a wonderful garden patio to hang out in and have wine. Which is another thing I wanted to mention is Whole Foods is right around the corner. Yep another A+ The next thing i would like to mention is the wonderful breakfasts that are served at union hall the in house restaurant. The food is gorgeous & so is the coffee. Speaking of coffee let me tell you there are 2 amazing coffee shops in walkin distance from the inn. One is Grind & Sqeeze which is a coffee/juice/wine bar that has the best latte ever and comfy chairs and couches to sit outside and relax. The other is the uber cool coffee scientists down the street at collective coffee co. Amazing! So let's get back to our vacation and having Charleston at our fingertips because it's such a convenient drive. Basically to come out if the adorable little neighborhood that the in is set in. Like a movie set actually. You get on the road drive over that beautiful bridge and it's basically first exit off. So it was almost as if we were right there but also having a quiter and more peaceful place to go home to. Yes after a day or so it felt to us like home. I'm not getting paid or forced to do some amazing review but I honostly & truly loved that we made the choice to stay at Inn at Ion for our romantic Charleston getaway! We stayed 4 nights and truly didn't want to leave and it was affordable,convenient & exceeded our expectations in every way!!!!


Weekend Getaway

4.8 on September 07, 2014

My husband and I booked The Ion Inn to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend away from our 2 year old twin boys, and the Ion Inn was the perfect place to do this. We absolutely loved it! The rooms were fabulous, the breakfast was delicious, and the service was great. It was also quiet so we got a wonderful nights sleep. We loved the community it is located in and took advantage of the pool at the Ion Club. We also enjoyed walking around enjoying the beautiful scenery. The location is great too. We like to enjoy Sullivan's Island as well as dinner downtown so staying in between is a great way to do it. You also can't beat the value of this inn. We've stayed many places downtown including a bed and breakfast or 2 and this by far outweighs our experiences there for half the price. I highly recommend booking a reservation at the Inn at Ion. You won't be disappointed.


Want to come back!

The Inn at I'on was a wonderful place to stay just outside Charleston. Great location in a nice community. Right across the street from a great pub with good food and service. The breakfast at the Inn each morning was delicious, the room (room 1 is where we stayed) was clean, had modern furniture with a feel of exactly what you want a BnB to be and the rec facilities down the street were a great plus. Well worth the price! Definitely want to return with some other friends and make a fun couples weekend staying at the Inn at I'on again.
