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.


Great Gem in Charleston

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


You will LOVE it!!!

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


A Charleston gem

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.


Outstanding - no hotel comes close in Charleston

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.


A great way to celebrate a wedding anniversary

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.


Hospitality and comfort

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.


Thanks, Lisa, for a fantastic time!

What a gem!

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


A Writer's Retreat in the Heart of the City

5 on April 10, 2014

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.
