We enjoyed the Front Garden Suite, which indeed opens into a small garden at the front of the house. The suite itself was commodious and wonderfully comfortable. Copious light streamed into the sitting room in the morning, so that I could sink into the couch and read in the morning while my honey prepared for the day.
The inn itself is embedded in the elegant and cultivated neighborhood south of Broad St. Simply walking a few blocks around Lavender and Lace was a treat in itself, although we tended to wander much farther afield. In fact, we got in our car only once, to eat at a restaurant across the Ashley River.
Judy Brown greeted us on our arrival and spent the better part of an hour making suggestions how to best enjoy our time in Charleston. In making those suggestions, she paid careful attention to our preferences. We feel very well served having followed those suggestions.
Breakfast was delivered to our room, which meant we could eat at any time, a definite plus in our case. On the other hand, for this reason we didn't rub shoulders with other guests, the only downside to this inn. The food was plentiful, and a quiche was particularly delicious.
