Before visiting An Inn on York Street, I read all the accolades this establishment received. After having visited one lovely weekend in November, I will say that they are all justified.
The owners - Mark and Sandie - do everything to make your visit memorable. My wife does not eat meat and Sandie accomodated her dietary restrictions with lovely dinner and breakfast alternatives. The most amazing thing is that we did not tell the owners ahead of time about this, but Sandie managed to whip up a delicious meal for my wife on quick notice. That alone is A+ service in my book.
The Mark Twain room was lovely. The furniture fit in perfectly with the decor of the entire house. We were also given the "grand tour" of the home when we arrived and the entire home is furnished beautifully. The dinner rated 5 stars and the breakfasts were imaginative and delicious. I know you get freebie breakfasts at some of the hotels these days, but you won't find cold cereals, pre-fabricated waffles or cold eggs and bacon at An Inn on York Street!
This English B&B was delightful in every way. The people who own it are charming and gracious. Do yourself a favor and stay here if you are in the Charlotte area or on your way to Columbia, SC...or just make this a destination visit to Chester, SC, because it is so worth it!
