The Phillips-Yates-Snowden House
Ranked #8 of 39 Charleston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2013

At the end of July my wife and I spent 5 nights at this historic jewel. We could not have chosen a better location or more friendly place. The B&B is on a safe quiet street about a block off the water away from the noise of Charleston. "Very Relaxing". Yet it is an easy 5min walk to the many resturants and shops of old charleston. We stayed in the room on the lower level and were pleased with the spacious and clean accomodations. We arrived after 8 pm and were greeted with wine and smiling faces. Jack, Annalise, LeAnn, as well as (Fannie, Drifter, and Clarence) :)were wonderful hosts, made us feel at home, and gave top notch recommendations that made our stay in Charleston memorable. We will definently be returning for a stay at 15 Church Street the next time we pass through Charleston.

We spent three nights at this beautiful, historic bed and breakfast. The owners greeted us at the door and were attentive to our needs throughout the visit. Annelise sat us down in the parlor, talked to us briefly about the B&B (how things work there) and then proceeded to knowledgeably answer our questions and offered suggestions on what to do in Charleston. She provided phone numbers for us to make reservations for tours. We missed the evening (6:00) social hour each night, but were offered refreshments when we did come in. Our room was large, clean and comfortable...with views of the Charleston rooftops (since we were on the 3rd floor). We chose our breakfast from a small menu the night before and were welcomed each morning with conversation, first on the piazza and then in the dining room, with Jack and Annelise and with the other guests. The house is located in the historic area, allowing us to walk everywhere (although you may want to take advantage of the pedicabs after a long day of exploring). All in all...we loved this place and hope to return someday.

I've never written a review before but was do impressed with this place I had to! First off the location is perfect. You can walk to anywhere you would want to go. Church street itself is beautiful and was named the most romantic street in America! Jack and Annalise were great host. Super friendly, great conversation and so helpful! They gave great recommendations and knew so much about the city. They have a cat and dog that are so well behaved and friendly. Even if you aren't pet people, you'll enjoy just seeing drifters chubby cat body laying on the porch. The social hours were so much fun. It wast interesting to meet and talk with all the other guest! We plan on returning soon and highly recommend it. We were in the Blue room and found it to meet all our needs. Super comfy bed, great shower pressure and the stairs aren't that bad of a climb. If your planning a trip to Charleston you have to stay here!

We stayed at 15 Church Street for two nights in late May. The house is in a beautiful area of Charleston - great atmosphere and it's very easy to walk from there to other parts of the city/attractions you would want to visit (we were able to park our hire car in the B&B's secure driveway and didn't need it while we were there). The drinks hour each evening is lovely as is the communal breakfast table - makes it very social so if you want to escape from people and conversation, this is probably not the right option for you!

We were in the Rosé Room - very spacious with everything we needed. Up lots of stairs though so not an option if your mobility is not good. The sun rises early though so we were woken early and it started to get pretty hot in the room at about 7.30am. On the upside, one morning I used the extra time to go for a run along the water - incredible homes to see and for me, a real highlight of our time in Charleston.

The breakfasts were nice. Not too big or heavy which was a nice change for America!

Jack and Annalise are very hospitable and Annalise took the time to give us an overview of local history before we ventured out on our first day which was appreciated. But greatest praise goes to Martha - when my husband asked her for some washing liquid as he had a mark on his shirt, she insisted that she launder it for him...and the mark was gone when she returned it to him! Very, very kind and definitely above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to all three of you for an enjoyable stay.

Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments! Please know that we enjoyed you just as much and look forward to your return.

Jack, Annelise, Martha, Frannie the dog, Drifter & Clarence the cats.

PS We do have an auxiliary AC unit in the top rooms in addition to the central HVAC. Perhaps it was not yet installed in May which is typically a cool month.

On our way to Florida, my husband and I spent 2 nights at this most welcoming B&B. We've stayed in many B&Bs but none had the historical character and feel of home as 15 Church Steet. One feels the continuum of history in the house, the street, the neighborhood, the entire town. And as for our hosts, it is rare to so quickly bond with 2 perfect strangers as we did with Martha and Jack (unfortunately, Annelise was away) - we felt sad that we do not live close enough to them to periodically share a bottle of wine and probe into each others' pasts. It was just so delightful to spend time at their most beautiful home. We shall return (despite my allergy to cats) (Drifter, the household "lap cat" certainly was not allergic to me!!).

My husband and I spent 2 nights on a recent trip to Charleston. Originally, we were going to stay at a hotel using points, but decided to treat ourselves by staying at a bed & breakfast. We are so glad we did! Our time at the inn was wonderful. Martha immediately made us feel right at home. It was like visiting with family. The house and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. The location was perfect. It was extremely quiet and we were able to walk everywhere. We didn't use our car once. Breakfast selections were plentiful and tasty. We especially enjoyed the evening social hour. Typically, we would have run from one activity to the next, but socializing at the inn helped us to slow down, relax and unwind. We really missed social hour when we returned home on Saturday night! I would recommend 15 Church Street Bed & Breakfast to anyone. It is the perfect spot for couples, families, friends, etc.

Stayed at the Phillips-Yates-Snowden house in early April. I was there with 5 friends for a girls get-away to Charleston and this was the perfect spot! Jack and Annelise make you feel like part of their family and right at home. The location was perfect - walking distance to everyplace we wanted to go. Would definitely stay there again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Now the home of Dr. & Mrs. Jack W. Simmons, Jr., the property was originally owned by Captain Timothy Phillips during the Revolution. The Yates family constructed the present house in the early 1840’s and it served as a hospital during the Civil War during which time it was struck by four cannonballs, two of which are now mounted on the gate posts. It is notable for its Adam style paneling by Thomas Pinckney and ironwork by Charleston ironwright, Philip Simmons, his most recent addition (1998) being the basement gate at the front. The Earthquake of 1886 leveled the 4th story, which was rebuilt with a Mansard roof. Subsequent to this, the structure was reinforced with "earthquake rods", bolts running through the house between the exterior walls. Almost 100 years later, in bringing the structure up to code, this same technology was used with the addition of nine more bolts. (Rates: $225.00-325.00) ... more   less
