We spent 2 nights at this B&B and would do so again. It is a lovely old building with wonderful verandahs to enjoy on hot summer days. Our room was on the third floor (there is no elevator) but was spacious, nicely decorated and quiet. However, it did not have an ensuite and so we had to share a (very small) bathroom with the other guest room on the floor. The location is excellent for exploring historic Charleston and close to good shopping on King Street. Off-street parking is available at the rear of the building. Charlene gave us a wonderful warm welcome when we arrived, and a hug when we left. She also provided excellent advice on where to eat and how best to get around the city.
