First time to Charleston for my wife and me this mid July..want to stay in/near the historic district(I think) in something akin to the Rutledge House. We want authentic, yet we want to be comfortable..Let's be honest here; I like air conditioning, non-musty rooms, nicely appointed rooms...but I don't care if there's a ghost or two floating around the place. Pool? Yes, that would be nice, but I'm having trouble finding that ilk of accommodation with a pool. Was it the Elliott House Inn that looked promising? I couldn't believe what I was reading about one post of the Battery Carriage place..you don't stay IN the house, but in some corner basement room? What the..
And, as highly touted as their site looks with the Travel Channel recommendation by Samantha Brown, the Palmer Home had some bad reviews that made me run away.
I'm afraid many of these charming old southern places are run down and living off of their reputations of 100 years ago.
Somebody..please..narrow it down to 5 places for me...up to $225 a night.
Help help help.Thanks.
