A true taste of the South - this circa 1853 historic home offers beautifully decorated bedrooms with antique four poster and canopied beds. Known as Charleston's Full Southern Breakfast Place, the Cannonboro Inn is a place to be pampered-sleep until the aroma of one of our sumptuous breakfasts lures you to the piazza overlooking a low country garden and fountain. After breakfast tour nearby historic sites on touring bicycles and return to afternoon tea.

The weekend of March 14

I and most of my family stayed here while attending my granddaughters wedding. We especially enjoyed the service of manager Lynn and her staff. Lynn made our stay at Cannonboro Inn outstanding.

charming, comfortable, and convenient

My husband and I had a relaxing and very enjoyable stay at Cannonboro Inn. Our room was lovely, charming, spacious and very comfortable. We had full breakfasts every morning which were the best meals we had during our vacation. The members of the staff were so friendly and helpful with whatever need we had. The inn was conveniently located within walking distance of the historic places in Charleston.

Great find. Hidden Gem.

Southern Hospitality at it's best

The staff were warm & friendly and the breakfasts were excellent not your typical continental boring meals at some B/D. This was a hot cooked to order southern dish and we were served a different dish every day of our 3 nights there. The rooms were comfortable & clean. Location was excellent located directly across the medical university and only a few blocks walking distance to the historic district on King & Market streets. The staff had accurate info on dining and activities. We enjoyed are stay at Cannonboro and would defiantly return again.

Awesome place to stay!

I stayed here while in town for an interview at MUSC. Our room was clean and very homely. It reminded me of my grandmother's house. The breakfast was really good and the staff was very friendly. They serve afternoon wine and snacks which were good as well. I really don't have a negative thing to say about the place. We stayed there on a half off special that they offered in the tourism off season, I suggest that you take advantage of this if you are planning a trip to Charleston. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone that visits this great city!
