Fabulous rooms with a view overlooking Charleston Harbor and Historic Fort Sumter. Locally known as the "Pink Palace" it is one of the 50 most famous homes in Charleston. The Palmer Home is in the center of the historic district. Off-street parking, hot breakfast, wine & cheese all included.
Very large room with beautiful queen antique bedset. Audubon prints over sofa in large living room. Large bathroom has an antique clawfoot tub and shower.
This queen bed was built in 1850. It is signed and dated by the carpenter. With the best view of the harbor this room is very large and has an adjoining bay window room with a double bed. The private bathroom, located five steps across a private hall, is very large (bath tub and shower).
The King Room is very large and has a bath with shower only. This room also features a nonworking fireplace of Black African Marble and a strata of gold.
This cozy room is located on the third floor of the house and has a view of the Charleston Harbor through an Oak tree just to the left of our house. A beautiful queen four-post canopy bed, a decorative black African-marble fireplace, and a spacious bath give this room a romantic feel. This room does not walk onto the third floor piazza, but you do still have access to both piazzas.

the wine and cheese in the evening was not up to standard of others BBs I have stayed at.

First off - we loved staying here for three days. The owners and staff are friendly and accomodating - the cats are too! We could have lived on the second floor porch - the view of Fort Sumtner, the sailboats and the people watching were a highlight of our trip. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. Just a few things about our particular room - the Magnolia room - prevent me from rating higher. This room is off the kitchen, so we had early morning noise and one evening had a group in the kitchen slamming cabinet doors until about 11. Not horrible but you definitely knew someone was in the kitchen. The only cleanliness issue was cobwebs on the bedroom ceiling. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful - lots of fruit - beautifully presented. I would have liked a change from bacon every day. Some people might think I'm nuts, but there it is. Everything worked perfectly - the TVs, shower. We loved having cookies and lemonade to snitch every day as we came back to change and the wine/cheese/olives tray that appeared around 4 was very, very nice and a good reason to get out on that fantastic porch to relax again. It was wonderful to be right on the harbor - very quiet at night, close to Battery Park. We would stay here again without hesitation!

We are used to B&B's with more sociable hosts, and we never met the owner once. The hospitality seemed a little stand-offish. But the meals were good (buffet style, come when you want), although the same every morning. But the view from the piazza was spectacular and they had wine sitting out for the guests. Within walking distance from all the shopping/restaurants, and in a safe neighborhood. Last, the beds were not comfortable and people kept slamming doors outside of our room during the night. Bring your own pillow!

We stayed in the Carriage House on the property since we travelled with our three cats. We were made so welcome and made new friends during our visit. Charleston and in particular the Palmer Home is our new go-to vacation spot!

Great location, and great room...we stayed in the poolhouse and it was very nice and private. Breakfast was ok, not bad but nothing special. Location is amazing, a short walk to everything we wanted to do in Charleston. I would stay here again in the future.
