That has always been my Southern dream and it came true at my stay in the Governor's House.
From the moment we walked in we were swept away but Southern charm and hospitality. One of the innkeepers immediately sat us down, took our luggage and made us feel right at home. She gave us a fantastic overview of the city, made great suggestions on what to see, eat and experience.
The Inn is amazing, historic and so Southern. It is located in the perfect area to walk to shops, restaurants and to admire the amazing homes of Charleston. The entire city is dripping with Jasmine and the incredible smell overtakes you when you stroll down the streets.
Our room was cozy but decorated beautifully from a lace canopy bed to charming wooden shutters. The main areas of the inn were just as beautiful. The house was full of antiques and the porch came complete with couches and rocking chairs.
Every night they have an afternoon tea with cakes, cookies, crackers and spreads and your choice of iced or hot tea. They also invite you to sip sherry in their parlor whenever you might feel inclined.
If you stay in Charleston, stay here.
