The Brass Pineapple B&B is THE BEST place to stay in the historic district of the quaint river town of Charleston, West Virginia. The home is a most amazing piece of architecture from the early 1900's with its gorgeous original woodwork, grand entry, original stained glass windows and more! Lisa, the hostess and owner is an wonderful organic cook and great conversationalist! Looking forward to going back next year for a couple days to take more time to explore this beautiful city.
5 on March 17, 2016
We stopped in after raves from my husband about the staff and hospitality for a business meeting. We hoped we could slip in for reservations after a long business trip. Lisa and Kimberly were super nice and helpful. The home was warm, with obvious attention to detail. The rich, wooden accents were beautiful. The Capital building is well within viewing distance and New River Gorge was a mere 75 minutes away. Looking forward to visiting again! Michael & Leanne

Traveling through and decided to stay at a B&B instead of a Hilton. What an awesome experience! We can't say enough great things about our stay except that we'd like to visit again! Jim and Lisa

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful property, and we can vouch for the care that Lisa gives to both the building and her guests. The Brass Pineapple is highly recommended.

Lisa is the epitome of the ideal B&B host - welcoming, totally accommodating. Best coffee I've had in a B&B! Breakfast was spot on for my needs and custom made to boot! Will absolutely stay again whenever I'm in Charleston - Business meetings start better after staying at the Brass Pineapple.

My wife and I spent a long weekend, three nights, at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast last wekend. Everything about the facility was first class. The decor was impeccable,from the original stained glass windows in the dining area, to the beautiful real wood appointments throughout.Our bedroom was so comfortable and quiet, with a King sized bed on the third floor, excellent huge shower and filtered water running through all plumbing. Lisa, the owner, was happy to provide the history of the house and was delightful and so helpful. Her cooking was something to look forward to each morning, with friendly chat with both Lisa and the guests. We enjoyed it thoroughly.
5 on March 20, 2015
I chose this instead of downtown hotel options and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. Lisa is a very good host, and the room I had was comfortable and clean. I got service that was specific to my needs and above my expectations. I have booked a return stay in a few weeks.

Loved the delicious afternoon tea with great snacks on your beautiful front porch also enjoyed your really tasty healthy breakfasts......thanks for taking time to let us know about great sights to see within walking distance.....and showing us all the other wonderful rooms you have to choose from.....will try others next time we visit!!!!

We had the most unexpectedly delightful stay for one night at the Inn. Wish we could have stayed longer! It is more than an Inn - it is a beautiful home that welcomes you in. The bed was very comfortable also and the Innkeeper, Lisa, very gracious. Every detail has been thoughtfully addressed. tomi and walt, durango, colorado

As a writer who is also a mom and wife with a full-time job, I try to schedule mini writing retreats whenever possible. The Brass Pineapple is my favorite destination to hole up and write when I visit Charleston. The Inn is near the Capitol Complex, the Cultural Art Center, the Kanawha River, and the Capitol Market. The rooms are tasteful and soothing, the breakfasts are scrumptious, and Lisa goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome and warm. I recommend this B&B to everyone, but especially to my artistic friends.
5 on February 25, 2014
I come "home" when I walk thru the doors of this wonderful B&B. Lisa could not be more welcoming.
5 on December 13, 2013
We had a wonderful, memorable stay at the Brass Pineapple. Private luxurious rooms, warm hospitality, and incredible food. I'm sold on B&B's now!
4.8 on May 22, 2013
Whenever I visit Charleston, I always stay at The Brass Pineapple Bed & Breakfast Inn. Lisa and Marcia are the greatest hosts. All of the rooms are charming and comfortable. The inn is very quiet and relaxing. Breakfasts are always wonderful. The inn still has most of its original architecture, beautiful, dark wood, with the original stained-glass windows. It is a great location, and the price is very reasonable. I always love my stay there. Ann from Ohio

This was our first visit to Charleston, WVA and it couldn't have been more delightful! From the moment we arrived, we felt absolutely comfortable. The afternoon refreshments that awaited us were delicious and so timely after a long drive. We very much appreciated the exhaustive list of restaurant recommendations and the directions that accompanied it. We chose the State Suite because we wanted plenty of room and it was just perfect with possibly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! In the morning, Lisa invited us to chat with her in the kitchen as well as with the other guests in the dining room. Breakfast was plentiful, delicious and healthy! She and Barb made a gracious and capable team. We loved our stay at Brass Pineapple - just wish it could have been longer!
4.8 on February 11, 2013
Staying at The Brass Pineapple was such a wonderful experience. Lisa treat s her guests like family. It's like stepping back to a time when customers were treated as valuable. The food was fantastic. Our room was lovely. It was truly what I hoped for and look forward to staying here again.
5 on November 25, 2012
I've been coming to stay at the Brass Pineapple for many years. Charleston holds a special and personal significance for me, and staying at the Brass Pineapple just adds to that ambiance. Lisa is a wonderful innkeeper who takes excellent care of all of her guests. I've come to regard her as a friend. Everyone should stay at the Brass Pineapple when they visit Charleston!
4.4 on July 23, 2012
Found the Brass pineapple while looking for a room. Location is perfect for when I am doing business in Charleston. Would recommend you stay.
5 on May 30, 2012
Brass Pineapple is a very comfortable and inviting B&B in the lovely Capital neighborhood. Lisa and her staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you arrive. My husband and I really appreciate the fact that they have a room set aside for pets. We often travel with our dog and he was able to stay in our room with us and with a great neighborhood location it was easy to get in good walks. The evening treats are wonderful and the hot breakfast very satisfying... Lisa uses locally sourced products for many of her offerings. We will certainly stay here again if we return to Charleston.
5 on March 30, 2012
Exceptional value. The rooms are so clean and comfortable, and it's a peaceful setting. So much better than a cold, impersonal hotel. The owners are outstanding people who are kind and professional, and very helpful. Within a three-minute walk of the Capitol, and a few minutes walk or drive from all the downtown restaurants. Lobbyists--this is where you should be. You could rent the whole house, have parking & private meeting space, and walk to the Capitol. Best kept secret in Charleston.

My fiance and I live just over an hour away and needed a "stay-cation" for the weekend to get out of the house and enjoy each other's company. The Brass Pineapple could not have been better! We were greeted with smiles and a 24/7 hot tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and goodies bar (with yummy snacks all night long). We were awaken every morning with a homemade delicious and healthy meal (ie eggs, sausage, toast, fresh fruit, hash browns, and fresh juices). The beds were feather pillow tops with amazing down comforters and a warm home-like feeling. Absolutely something that we are going to do again, and would recommend to anybody stopping by in the Charleston area.
4.2 on February 26, 2012
My husband and I loved our stay here. We are a young couple who just wanted to get away for a night so we came here from Lexington, Ky to relax and enjoy the small town of Charleston. While they very rather picky about what time we were getting in town (which was hard for us to pinpoint for sure), the innkeeper was very kind and helpful to us once there, drawing us maps and directions as needed. During the evening, we had the whole place to ourselves and enjoyed their puzzles, snacks, and wine in front of a beautiful Christmas tree in the main living room. Cheaper than area hotels probably - definitely a great bargain! We would return!
5 on October 27, 2011
We arrived early Sunday evening and we were greeted by the very friendly innkeeper. Room was very clean and bed was very comfortable. We had a wonderful breakfast of an assortment of fresh fruit and juices, whole-wheat pumpkin waffles and sausage patty.
4.8 on October 26, 2011
Whenever I travel to Charleston alone--sans family, friends or co-workers--I stay at the Brass Pineapple. Tranquility, elegance, and comfort lay the foundation for a wonderful overnight visit. Kudos.

We loved the house so much that we are having our wedding here.

Well, I don't usually write any reviews; but in this case I want anyone who is intrested in hearing what I feel was a wonderful place to stay. The Victorian home was well keep, very clean and carefully decorated. Our room was spotless and waiting for our arival. The Inn Keeper Laura greated us with such a friendly and welcomming greeting, we felt conftable as soon as we entered. Laura went that extra mile and asked questions concerning our breakfast, I am a diabetic and just requested meat and eggs and to my surprise that evening when usually you get some sweets and vegtables with dip and crackers, I had a note on a plate of brownies that were sugar free and for me. That let me know that laura was rally listen to me when she asked about breakfast. That was so nice that she really cared. I really can't say anymore but if you are like us and stay in upscale lodging, you will never go back to themif you get to experience this B&B. Now when I travel I look for B&B. Best of all the price was much cheaper the the Marriott in Charleston. Beard's from Baltimore, MD

We wanted a place with Southern charm when visiting Charleston recently, and this B&B has it in spades! From the spotless rooms to the wonderful, ample breakfasts and homemade goodies, The Brass Pineapple really exceeded our expectations. Carol and Dennis, Phoenix, Arizona

Everything worked out great, from reservation to check-out. Nothing to complain about, room was clean, quiet. Breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay here again. Also loved the Bluegrass Kitchen, a short walk from the B&B.

Second time for us. We stay here during the high school track meet. My daughters are in 10 th grade, so we will stay two more time times. Very nice
4.6 on May 25, 2011
Just a wonderful experience, made so by the owners/staff in their attention to our comfort and satisfaction. Will return.
4.6 on May 23, 2011
Over a 100 year old house perfectly kept with a great staff and owner, great experience, only a 5 minute car drive from all the attractions downtown. Excellent breakfast, clean rooms, great overall experience!

Normally we can't stay at this level of B&B because we are usually travelling with children, but we got a special deal this time and the kids were staying home, so we went for it. All the positive reviews were right. Right after checking in, we went down for the tea and snacks and got into a very enjoyable conversation with an English couple also staying there. It's something that would never have happened at a normal hotel. We did not have any interaction with the B&B owners, just the young girl who checked us in; but that was OK. We were just there for a quick overnight stay and had to leave immediately after breakfast. Breakfast was tasty and reasonable (not huge) in quantity.
4.6 on April 19, 2011
The Brass Pineapple, a short walk away from the Capital Building in Charleston, was a lovely place to spend a night. The innkeepers were friendly and solicitous, the food delicious, and the neighborhood was quiet, and nice for a walk.The house itself was well-appointed, tastefully decorated, and our room was comfortable and charming!
4.4 on March 24, 2011
This was my first time to ever stay at a B&B. From now on this is the way to go. Everything was perfect. Felt right at home. The Brass Pineapple is the place to stay in Charleston, WV.

My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon stay in late 2001 and we have been back many times since. We booked a local getaway because of car trouble, and we were lucky we did or we would have missed this local treasure! Every room is unique and beautiful and we have seen or stayed in every room or suite. With the exception of one room, they all have private bathrooms, a must for any honeymoon. My only minor complaint is the early 9am checkout, but it is a B&B after all, some make you get up before the sun! The new management in 2002 has maintained the same quality and cleanliness we came to expect, and there is a general feeling of being in a large home and not a hotel. Be sure to sign and read the guest book, you never know, you may be neighbors with someone from England like we were. Whether you live here or come from far away I recommend you give this little place a try, you won't be disappointed!
5 on March 05, 2011
First, the staff was wonderful. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The structure of the bed and breakfast was beautiful and the rooms superb. The food they provided was awesome, and the array of choices of drinks and teas. It was so comforting to us. I took my cousin to stay the night here when she flew in from Australia. It was perfect, she was able to rest peacefully after a long flight. I will definitely go again, and recommend to others.

While in Charleston for a wedding, we were fortunate to enjoy ourselves as much at the Brass Pineapple as we did at the wedding. The home is so warm and inviting that it welcomes one with the smells of baking, friendly people and great conversations in a beautiful home. We felt exceptionally welcome and spoiled during our stay. (The pancakes are amazing) Brenda & Steve Holden Beach NC

Great experience in Charleston at the Brass Pineapple! Great communication from confirming our stay to preparing gluten-free meals. Excellent accommodation and the food was great. Wonderful location in a nice historical neighborhood 1 block from the Capitol building and a block or two from the scenic Kanawha River. Highly recommend!
4.2 on August 08, 2010
This is a great place to stay. Room was quiet, nicely furnished and house has warm and cozy feeling. Cake, veggie tray and tea is available to guests in afternoon and evening. I like the touches of plentiful bath towels, robes, and soap/shampoos that are upgraded from the basic stuff you usually find. Breakfast was tasty, with lots of tea options. The front porch has lots of spaces to sit and relax.

On a recent for the holidays trip to visit family in New York, we had the pleasure of staying at the Brass Pineapple. After a long day of traveling we were very tired and couldnt wait to relax and boy did the staff meet and exceeded our expectation. I would like to thank the staff for a wonderful stay and the great breakfast prepared by Brian and Barbara. Loved chattin with Brian while he cooked our breakfast he made a feel if we were family. Its not many places you can go to and get a great meal as well as wonderful conversation. I have already told so many people about the wonderful service and good conversation we had at The Brass Pineapple. Bravo Lisa on having a staff that cares for you and goes above and beyond to make your stay wonderful.....

Staying in the English Gentleman my wife and I count the Brass Pineapple as one of the best Inn's we stayed at during our honeymoon. The innkeepers offered terriffic hospitality, the room was clean and cozy, and the home very welcoming.
5 on October 24, 2009
My stay here was wonderful to say the least. The warm homey feeling by the staff and excellent food was fantastic. The beauty and charm of the buildking and rooms was completely unexpected. If you are looking for a charming beautiful bed and breakfast with superb food this is the place to go.
4.8 on July 21, 2009
The slightly plain exterior of this inn does not do it justice. The rooms were clean and extremely comfortable - elegant but not overbearing. The porch and common areas were inviting and relaxing. The meals were incredible, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and every interaction with the staff was greeted with a beautiful smile. A great place for a romantic getaway or a relaxing weekend.
4.8 on June 19, 2009
Wow, what a great inn! It's clean, the rooms and decor are beautiful, and the food is top-notch. They've done a wonderful job turning this 100+ year old house into a nice place to stay.

Another wonderful time at the Brass Pineapple. Enjoyed Miss Pineapple, the cat, and great breakfasts!
5 on May 14, 2009
Very comfortable beds, exceptionally clean, wireless was free and worked great, food was wonderful and some the best we've ever had at a B&B. We travel more than 250 nights a year for work and this is one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed. The staff are very attentive to detail and friendly. We'll go back. Good Morning America was filming a show on a local person while we were there and Lisa did a great job managing everything and keeping everyone comfortable. The food is great and the wine is good too. We look forward to our next stay.

I have stayed in several B&Bs over the year and everall the Brass Pineapple was the best I ever stayed at.

We stumbled on the Brass Pineapple after a recommendation from Taylor Books, and what a gem it is! The room was wonderful and the bed so comfortable. We've stayed in several B&Bs and the hospitality and special touches here exceeded all of them. The only minus was that we had only one night! We'll definitely be back. N&J Cain, Phoenix AZ

I arranged a business trip, for my brother. I decided to knock off two birds with one stone and look for a place really sweet and a bit extra special, so he could take his partner on a little mini get-away, after the business needs for our company were taken care of. Upon their return, I was elated with their ravings of this place. They both loved it and for days after, she would tell me how wonderful this place is. They both loved the attention to detail; the great food; the friendliest people there making everything perfect for their stay…The only thing left..now I need to find some spare time, so I can go there for my own mini retreat!
5 on March 01, 2009
This is the best place to stay in West Virginia. We stayed from Wednesday until Saturday and wish we didn't have to leave. We loved it so much we will be back in 2 weeks. The Victorian Room was so beautiful and comfortable that my husband with back problems slept as well as he does at home in our bed. Actually it was probably better. We also spent a night in the Grandmother's room and it was an absolute delight. The breakfast and baked goods were so delicous and no wake up call is needed as the smell of breakfast is sure to get you up and going. Lisa and Marsha are both so sweet and the hospitality abounds within these walls. We rescued a stray while we were down there and they helped accomodate us so that we could bring her back until we came home yesterday. The home is so beautiful and the furnishings bring you back to a slower more peaceful time. I cannot wait for the two weeks to pass so we can come back.

We arrived on a cold, snowy January day, but we warmed up quickly after being greeted and enjoying afternoon tea. The room we stayed in was very charming, and the breakfast was delicious. The owner and staff were so friendly that we felt like they were old friends. I would highly recommend a stay at the Brass Pineapple to anyone.
5 on January 23, 2009
We stayed our first night in a B&B and were impressed with everything. We particularly enjoyed meeting new people at tea in the afternoon and breakfast the following morning. I will go back to the Brass Pineapple and try one of the other rooms for a change.

Who knew Vegan Snickerdoodles could taste so wonderful? Accommodations for dietary requests is just a start to the exceptional service we received! Lisa went above and beyond to make sure our weekend was perfect. Her restaurant suggestions were just what we wanted and her "from the front door" directions allowed us to walk to dinner! The home's history and the stained glass were awesome and our smaller room was the cleanest I've experienced! Try the healthy whole wheat raisin pancakes, they are delicious!
4.8 on October 21, 2008

We stayed here on a girls trip for one night. Very clean, friendly and comfprtable home. We arrived late to a veggie/cheese tray waiting for us in the fridge. That was nice after a long trip. Beautiful furnishings, but also comfortable. You can make yourself at home. Walk outside and look down the street and you will see the beautiful gold topped capitol gleaming in the evening. Quiet, safe area.

This was our first visit to Charleston West Virginia. Even thought it was a cold rainy day, the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen and the warmth and friendliness of our hostess made our stay a very enjoyable one.

4.2 on October 17, 2007
The food in this B&B was exceptional. From marvelous breakfast to afternoon tea and evening cakes & cookies this beautiful old house with stained glass windows had a lot to offer a visitor to West Virgina. The room on the third floor was a bit snug for the three of us (our 16 year old daughter was with us). The beds were comfortable and the 3rd story was cool and clean. Sharing the bathroom with two of the third floor guests was a challenge in the morning and at night. The close proximately to sights like the capital building, river and downtown made it worthwhile.
5 on October 17, 2007
The facility is beautiful. Lisa, Gretchen and Marsha were professional, warm and anticipated my needs. Will definitely be returning.
