Excellent place to stay

5 on November 05, 2015

Stayed at the Charleston for a couple of days to veiw the fall colors in the NC mountains. The accomodations were great and the service was even better. The breakfast each morning is outstanding and the owners and staff were very personable and attentive to our needs. We were planning to attend a play in the local downtown area and when we arrived found out that the Charleston could get our tickets free. That saved us over $60, outstanding. The town is small, but the downtown area has been revitalized and is a very fun and interesting place to explore. Plenty of great restaurants and shops. We had a wonderful 2 day vacation.


Beautiful Venue for Birthday celebration

We traveled to Hendersonville on the spur of the moment and found this great inn. We were only able to stay one nite. The inn is located on one end of the main street with ample parking. We were able to walk to our restaurant. We arrived about 4:30---just in time to unpack and partake in the wine/cheese happy hour. The large wrap-around front porch with beautiful yard really added ambience to the time. Cute plates for the cheese. Even had home-made peanut butter cookies. We called ahead and the staff recommended restaurants which was helpful. We were in room 102 which was great as we didn't have to walk up the steps. There was smoking on the porch and that may have been a problem if we had opened our windows. The breakfast was delicious and well served. We met several new friends too. Nice place----- We will return.


Wonderful stay

Apple picking trip

Our family was in town to do some apple picking for the first time. We really enjoyed our time in Hendersonville. It was the kids first experience In bed and breakfast. The room was perfect size and the Charleston Inn definitely has some great character and charm. The owners were super nice and accommodating. The inn is in a great location and easy to get find. It's within walking distance to lots of shopping and dining options.


my pampered weekend

This was my first stay in a B&B.  The location was wonderful.  I was able to park right in front both days we were there.  The side walk runs from in front of the B&B straight down Main street to quant shops and restaurants.   I would say, the biggest plus about The Charleston would be Shellie,  the owner; husband, Tim; father, Jack, and John plus  the rest of the staff. They were friendly & helpful, anticipating my need before I even asked. I personally enjoyed just sitting on the inviting front porch and visiting with Jack.  I found out they had just recently purchased the property.   They let me know they were aware of the needs for updates and let me in on some of their plans.  I was glad to hear this,  because even though everything was very clean, it is certainly time for some renovations.  Considering the age it has been well kept.   I look forward to going back and see what they have done.  All in all it was a lovely weekend.  I highly recommend The Charleston to anyone visiting Hendersonville or the surrounding area.


A North Carolina Must! ¿¿

Having been through Hendersonville previously we booked two nights over the Labor Day Weekend at the inn and it was a wonderful weekend. Rocking chairs, wine and cheese, good homemade breakfast, clean comfortable rooms and easy five minute walk to downtown. Definitely coming back!

Love the Inn and the owners were so friendly and accomodating. The location was perfect. The room was comfortable, but the mattress was soft and mu husband and I rolled into the middle of the bed.


Awesome

Always stay here every time we come to town. New owners are holding the Great Tradition Strong. One great addition is having two choices for breakfast. This was a nice perk.
