This was our third visit to 15 Church St and it felt just like visiting family. The welcome was warm, bed very comfortable and food superb. Never having experienced Thanksgiving before we were not quite sure what to expect, but from beginning to end the entire stay was overwhelming. Jack and Annelise are certainly consummate hosts and a simple review... More

We had a queen bed, a day bed, a fireplace and a modern, well- appointed bathroom. Prior to the evening cocktail hour, Annilese gave us... More

Annelise, Jack and their staff make this B&B one that we will return to whenever we go to Charleston. Great location with everything in walking distance along with free parking, breakfast and cocktail hour.

When staying at a B&B, there's a fine line between being a guest in someone's private home while also trying to experience the independence to achieve personal explorations.

This was the true historic down South Charleston. The owners are helpful and really guide you in your choices of what to see do and dine in Charleston. Breakfast was made to order, Near the Battery where the breezes are wonderful. The porch was a real plus. Can't wait to get back!
