My 4 friends and I stayed in the "kitchen house" this past weekend and LOVED the place. If you are looking for white walls, tailored bedskirts and all the fufu trimmings of a Charleston hotel, this is not for you. The house is centuries old, has a squeaky board in the floor here and there, a small bathroom and no...

In one of the most quit streets stand two small buildings behind a big, century old family house. In one of these we lived for five days. The fridge was well stocked, the bedroom clean and comfortable. The shower acceptable. The city is only a footstep away. The host and hostess are very friendly and have a centuries old connection...

My husband and I stayed in the one bedroom Carriage House and we were very disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by Mr. Middleton and he walked us inside. We knew before we made the reservations that this was not your typical set down to breakfast BB, but under the impression they would stock the small refrigerator with breakfast items....

We are so sorry to hear of your unpleasant experience with us. This property has been run as a bed and breakfast for somewhere close to 30 years now by the Middleton Family. The building in which you stayed dates back to the 1740s. This property is certainly not for everyone. The stairs on the outside of the property were...

We decided to settle on a home instead of paying for an expensive hotel in downtown Charleston. We found this site on vrbo.com. With so many homes to choose from, my sister-in-law told us this was one of the best locations in downtown Charleston. Located right on Church St, 1 block from E. Bay St. Located near the battery, Waterfront...

This "cottage" is two teeny tiny rooms. The bedroom is upstairs. To get there you walk up a rickety circular staircase which is less than 2 feet wide. My husband, who is 6'2" had a tough time clearing the ceiling and the eve without hitting his head and shoulders simultaneously. But that isn't the worst of it. The bedroom has...

Wonderfully decorated cottage, like stepping back in time but with all the amenities. Location was perfect to access downtown by foot, courtyard was stunning and relaxing. The Middleton's are the most charming hosts! Can't wait to go back!

Love love love this place. Super friendly owners. Great location. Fully stocked kitchen from eggs to wine... the little cottage is prefect for two people and the courtyard is so lovely to sit and enjoy a glass of wine after a walk around the walled city. We will definitely more an effort to come back to this B&B :-)

This was our second stay at Middleton Family Bed & Breakfast, so obviously we liked it enough to return. The first time we stayed in the 2 bedroom house (which I prefer) and this time we stayed in the 1 bedroom. Both houses are old, quirky, charming, but a bit shabby and very dated with furnishings ranging from every decade...

“We stayed in the smaller cottage as a couple with a toddler. The larger cottage would be perfect for a couple with older children as it has twin beds in the second bedroom. The Middletons provided a pack-and-play for our toddler and it was perfect in the smaller cottage!”
