Enjoy a stay in Charleston's #1 Bed & Breakfast inn! Southerners have lived on this historic property since 1810. We're Charlestonians who will treat you like family and help you have a wonderful time. We limit ourselves to a very small number of guests so we can provide concierge service, including acclimation rides in the Historic District so you can see all there is to visit, fabulous dining, wonderful antique and art galleries, incredible history. We will arrange your walking tours with licensed professional guides, carriage rides, lunch and supper reservations, trips to the Plantations, and visits to the historic homes. Each morning you'll savor Charleston specialties like grits and crab cakes, lemon blueberry pancakes, grilled salmon with a sherry honey glaze and fresh corn, parmesan grilled tomatoes, brown sugar corn muffins, cheese biscuits, fresh fruit, and so much more. There is a reason we're rated #1. Come see us and we'll make Charleston everything you hoped it would be!

The epitome of southern hospitality!

5 on April 11, 2018

Given our interest in antiques and history Charleston has become our favorite vacation spot. Ms. Vaughn gave us a tour of the antique and art sectors to help us plan efficient use of our time. After taking in all the local history we then retire to Ms. Vaughn's comfortable historic home. Except for Uber and cell phones we are able to experience, virtually unabated, that period when the basics of family, faith, and courtesies were fundamental to southern living. And in the morning be prepared for a marvelous breakfast that is better than you'll find in the restaurants! Thank-you dear Vaughn. You are a blessing to my wife and me! Brooks in Nashville

Southern Charm

My wife and I recently visited Charleston S.C. for the first time, even though we were both born in the South, myself in Texas and my wife in Tennessee. Charleston has become one of our new favorite cities. Ms. Vaughan is a gem, and I might add a wonderful coo!. I hope to be able to come back one day soon. We weren't there long enough to experience all that Charleston has to offer.

Southern charm through and through

Beautiful and inviting home. Vaughn is so welcoming, helpful with recos and suggestions and full of southern hospitality- but not intrusive- she lets you do your thing. Her breakfasts are to die for! You won't leave hungry! Location is excellent- capable walking distance to historic market, French quarter and King street shopping district - far enough away to not be in the traffic, noise and bustle of those areas.

About the innkeepers

I became an innkeeper after retiring from my medical sales company after 15 years. It's nice to be able to be home all the time now instead of traveling the the Carolinas and the entire east coast. I have a wonderful son who is a cadet at The Citadel, the Military College of SC, here in Charleston.

Signature Dish

Lowcountry Grits and Crabcakes with Homemade Cheese Biscuits
Seafood is a way of life in Charleston, where trawlers dock daily with scrumptious shrimp, crab and fish. Our crabcakes are the perfect compliment to yellow grits and homemade biscuits. Most people don't eat lunch after our big Southern breakfast, the best in Charleston!
