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.
- 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
