21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 39 Charleston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2014

My wife and I stayed recently for the third time and were not disappointed. As usual the service by Julie the Innkeeper was top notch and the breakfast/baked goods were outstanding! The location is perfect as you can park your car and walk easily to most things in downtown Charleston. Only minor want would be a bigger table in the main room than the present one in order to facilitate games if two couples are staying. I highly recommend to anyone staying in Charleston. We look forward to out return visit!

My husband surprised me on our 21st wedding anniversary with a stay at this beautiful property. Our inn keeper Julie was so sweet and took the best care of us! We felt like a member of our family was spoiling us during a stay. The anniversary cake Julie left for us was such a nice surprise.
The house tour was great. The location allows you to walk just about anywhere. The added tourist material left in the room was a bonus. Helping you make your way around Charleston, pointing out the free trolley service and places to visit. Enjoyed the added little newspaper in the room explaining more of the family history.
We will be staying here again when we visit Charleston. Very clean, comfortable and quiet.

The rooms were clean, Julie went out of her way to accommodate us. She even baked a delicious cake for our anniversary! Our stay was perfect and so is the location - right on the Battery minutes from shopping, restaurants and historic sites, and the inn IS a historic site in itself!!!

We enjoyed our stay at 21 East Battery Bed and Breakfast very much, the Wife and I had one room and our two teenage girls had the other, it was great. We enjoyed having a quiet breakfast in the suite, sitting on the porch watching the bay, sightseeing in town by horse drawn carriage, walking along the waterfront as well as the general downtown which is full of beautiful houses.
We did a short stay at the Middleton Inn Plantation as well which is a "must do" activity, a great example of plantations of their day that has been restored to its previous grand state, except for the mansion that the Yankees burnt to the ground. Garden designed by the same landscape designer that did Versailles. If you have not been to Charleston, I would strongly suggest this package, you will not be let down, there is much to see and do and if you like houses, like I do, you will be rewarded, it is a step back in time to a day that time forgot, except they have been maintained. Bon Voyage.

Just off East Battery, you get the best of Charleston SC. Tucked away from the road you have seclusion but only steps from the Battery itself. The centre of Charleston is a few minutes walk.
This is not a traditional B and B in that Julie, who is an excellent host, leaves breakfast goods and snacks in the property for you to have in the morning or other time of choosing. The food was very good. Although she lives in separate part of the property Julie is always on hand to help.
The property is spacious and well appointed.
The area is beautiful with many fine restaurants within 10/15 minutes. walking distance The people of Charleston are charming.
If we are lucky to return to Charleston we won't look further than here.

Had a wonderful stay in the carriage house. We were within walking distance from just about everything. We loved the decor, how clean everything was, and the friendly yet quiet atmosphere. Charleston certainly has the best manners of the South. Next time we are in town we will certainly stay here.

From the moment we arrived in the beautifully shaded parking area, covered with moss-draped ancient oak and palm tree, we knew we had made the right choice! Julie came out and welcomed us, and gave us a quick, relaxing tour of the carriage house where we stayed. This is place is old and historical, but with all of the modern amenities you would expect! My favorite time, besides the tour of the Edmonston-Alston House, was ending our day sitting on the mezzanine wit a great bottle of wine - just my wife and I, and a perfect view of the Charleston bay! Highly recommend!
