The 15 Church Street Bed & Breakfast is a one of a kind experience! Upon arrival we were welcomed into a beautiful Charleston home with a drink. We then conversed over the rich history of the house in their sitting room. Annelise, Martha, and Jack were just wonderful! They were so knowledgeable about not only the history of the house but of Charleston as well. All of their restaurant recommendations were spot on. The house is located on a nice quiet street within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It is also very close to battery park (a must see when in Charleston). Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations and was very much worth the price. I will most certainly stay here again when I return to 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. ... more less
