“Wonderful Get Away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

My wife and I picked Charleston for a short post Christmas getway. We stayed in the Quarters at the 21 E. Battery Bed and Breakfast and it was wonderful. Located on the water on Charleston's East Battery my wife and I loved our stay. We were within walking distance of everything and the dining in Charleston is some of the best that we have ever had. Included in the great dining experience were the breakfasts that Julie the InnKeeper had prepared for us each night for the next, they were outstanding. Would highly recommend this location.

Thank you for pointing out the close proximity to most of Charleston's fine dining experiences, most within walking distance from the B&B! That amenity, off-street parking and a complimentary tour of the Edmondston-Alston House makes this the best valued B&B in Charleston!

My wife and I stayed in the carriage house behind the Edmundston-Austin House and had a wonderful experience. The house is HUGE, about 2100 sq. ft.. The first floor has a handsome (and hideable0 kitchenette and a large dining room; an entry with a grand piano, and a living room and study alcove. the second floor has a landing with a desk area, another family/living room area and, of course, the bedroom and bath. Because this is a renovation of an old carriage house, the original timbers form the ceilings and the wood flooring and; exposed brick are gorgeous. Located just east of the Battery, it is within walking distance of everything in the South of Broad and Somewhat North of Broad areas. Julie, our hostess, was warm and friendly -- a Yankee converted to Southern life.

Room Tip: This is for a quiet getaway -- meaning that while it's within walking distance of great restaura...

21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast couldn't be better located or more authentic. We stayed in the old slave quarters which have been beautifully restored. Julie surprised us with delicious home made cakes and biscuits each day and helpful advice on this lovely historic town. Will recommend to everyone!

We spent 4 days here in December, everything was absolutely perfect. It was so special to stay on the property of one of the beautiful mansions on the Battery. The location is perfect for exploring, shopping and visiting all of the wonderful Charleston restaurants. Our host, Julie was exceptional, her breakfasts and treats were delicious, and she even surprised us with a birthday cake upon returning home one evening. We stayed in the Quarters, which is spacious and very comfortable, and Julie took us to see the Carriage House which is gorgeous! We will definitely stay here again when we return to Charleston

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. Best choice we've ever made. Everything was perfect! Julie was fantastic, taking care of every little detail - she deserves 10 stars. The B&B was absolutely incredible - we loved all the books, the furnishings, and all the history! It was like stepping back in time. We can't wait to return. We want to take our grownup kids and their spouses next time. We took the Christmas candlelight tour of the Edmondson-Alston House which was fabulous! This was a great way to begin the Christmas season.

Room Tip: We stayed in The Quarters which was beautiful! You can't go wrong staying in any of the rooms...

We've stayed at quite a few B&B's and view the 21 East Battery carriage house as excellent. If you want a quite, roomy, comfortable place to stay close to downtown Charleston that has homemade breakfast/snack items, look no further.
Stayed over Thanksgiving 2013 and will book again on returning to Charleston.

Room Tip: 4-room Carriage House with kitchen and Steinway piano.
