An amazing place to stay. The staff is so helpful and the location is great. Large rooms with great wifi and parking! The food was wonderful and there was a large variety of choices and times. We loved our afternoon tea and snacks on the balcony. Some food is by Circa 1886 so you know it's good. We extended our stay by 2 days and will be back.

This inn was so beautiful and city so charming we stayed an extra night. Historical with all modern amenities. Staff was amazing!

Very nice and convenient place to stay but a bit pricey

Stayed during Spoleto Festival. Great location to get to the events. Room was spacious and very clean-nice to have TV, DVD player and small frige. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Appreciated the many choices for breakfast times and items as opposed to one set time and menu. Thought it was a bit pricey but was very happy with the stay and wished we could have stayed longer.

Charleston Break

Oh, such a nice place to stay, enjoyed the afternoon drinks and nibbles, evening Brandy was so good - and all for free. Rooms were excellent, breakfast was a highlight. So close to middle of town, neighbourhood was full of interesting houses, so close to dining. We enjoyed our stay

We enjoyed watching the goings-on of the town from the balcony off the dining area while drinking our coffee in the mornings!

Divine Historical Experience

The photo of JR house does NOT do it justice. The house has symmetrical staircases leading to the front porch and door (unfortunately, the original iron entry gates to these staircases have gone missing). The upper veranda is accessed through the ballroom. Simply being in the ballroom and on the veranda gave me chills, and I could see the parties of long ago. The antiques/decor add so much to the reality of being amongst pre-civil war, genteel southern society. Upon arriving at the Inn, I decided to stay in a carriage house (instead of the main house). My room was period-decorated, CLEAN, and private. My carriage house window looked out to the beautiful courtyard. I was able to park my rental car behind the courtyard (easy access and not seen from the courtyard). The hostesses had extensive knowledge of Charleston sites. I enjoyed blueberry muffins and coffee delivered to my room each morning. My stay was several days, and I changed rooms once just for fun - I did not have any discomforts - air conditioning, plumbing, and breakfast all worked like a charm! Allison, St. Louis
