The staff and owner of the Cannonboro Inn made our stay in Charleston very comfortable. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts were amongst the best meals we had during our trip. Thank You!

Room Tip: Parking in Charleston is difficult at best. Best to drive a small car. Rooms 1 & 2 face the stre...

I have worked with this B&B for over 10 years. They are the best. Clean, fabulous food, awesome people and always accommodating. Highly recommend them. Just awesome! If you want the charm of Charleston--this is the place to be. It is close enough to bicycle or to walk to downtown--just park and play. There is a bit of traffic but that is because you are diagonally across from one of the top medical universities in the USA, don't let that deter from the feel of the Cannonboro, their guest house, or the Ashley Inn.

Thanks for the hospitality Cannonboro in. I just enjoyed my vacation. My room was clean, and furniture useful, and I did walk any area by foot easily, also around troller goes around the city. It's a nice city culture and history I just love it. Cannonboro it's like home I would say, and also safe place to stay. I'm definitely suggest to everyone to stay comfortably.

This charming c. 1853 Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of the historic residential district. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the gourmet breakfasts a treat, whether served in the dining room or outside on the verandah. Amenities include afternoon tea and wine with home made treats, complimentary bicycles and concierge service. The owner is a history buff and is glad to share his knowledge of the town. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and spacious.

First time at Cannonboro Inn. We found Barry very interesting to talk to. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. With some great stories to tell us. Lyn is a fantastic hostess and chef. You will be amazed with the afternoon wine and snacks!!

This was my first B&B experience and I can't stop talking about it. From the minute we arrived till the minute we left the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly..The 1800'S house was charming and clean. The first and second floor "piazzas" were a delight to eat, drink, mingle or simply relax on. The gourmet breakfast each morning was something to always look forward to. The afternoon wine and homemade hors d'' oeuvres were always welcomed after a busy day of sightseeing, shopping, biking (they loan out) ,etc. Lynn, the manager, was more than willing to pass on her delicious recipes, and went out of her way to help you with sightseeing excursions, restaurant recommendations, reservations, taxis and anything else you needed. The entire staff was superb in every way. Looking forward to a return stay. Suzanne from NJ

Stop your search right here! This positively immaculate and well-appointed inn with an extremely efficient staff made me feel so welcomed! Lynn, our consummate hostess, provided in-depth information to the best restaurant and tours in the Charleston area—even the best locations for photographs. Her expertise didn’t stop there as she cooked us scrumptious gourmet breakfasts served on the beautiful verandah, as well as afternoon treats during “happy hour.” I had Room #5, tastefully decorated as is the entire inn, quiet, and with a very comfortable bed as well as a desk--more than enough room. Even though the bathroom, which has a large shower, is in the hall, the door is directly next to the bedroom door, so not a problem at all (robes are provided—which I didn’t even use), and the sink is conveniently in the bedroom. Location-wise, the inn is just minutes away from the hubbub of tourists, so I enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as having a parking space! Also, between the bikes and free trolleys, cabs, etc., getting around is so simple whether you do or don’t have a car. There are some great restaurants within two blocks as well. LOVED IT HERE! The Cannonboro Inn is tops on my list of my favorite B & Bs. CAN’T WAIT TO RETURN! Thank you Lynn, Trish, Alaina, and Barry!

Room Tip: Back in driveway to park--easier than you would think, and easier getting out.
