“Warm and Inviting in Charleston”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

We had a great stay this fall at the Brass Pineapple. Our room was warm, clean and inviting.The home is a victorian gem full of charm and antiques. Lisa is a very gracious hostess. The dinning room is always open and stocked with treats and wine.
The location is great - a short walk to the Caoital building - a must see - and the river walk.

We just enjoyed our fourth stay at the Brass Pineapple. It is located on a street of mature trees and large homes, within easy walking distance of the Capitol Building and the Cultural Center (both are a must see and free). There is ample off-street parking, and a nice front porch to relax on and watch bicyclists and joggers go by. There is a cake or some type of delicious sweet treat in the dining room at all times, crackers, assorted shelled nuts, along with coffee, hot water and an assortment of tea bags. In the refrigerator is a vegetable tray w/dip, cheese (for the crackers) and iced tea and/or lemonade. We have stayed in three different rooms during our four visits, and all have been comfortable. We will definitely be back, as this is our preferred place of lodging in Charleston while visiting our son at college.

Lisa and her staff were wonderful. Fun, friendly and so helpful. The rooms were lovely, clean and cozy, they try to think of all that you might need. The house is so beautiful and we loved sitting on the front porch cuddling with Pineapple the cat. Every morning at breakfast there was something different and delicious. We loved the fact that Lisa buys from local organic suppliers and works her magic. The location is ideal, we jogged along the river most mornings and strolled the Capital grounds and river each evening. We will definitely be back.

Terrific location, right in the middle of town. Off street parking. Walking distance to the state capital complex and the river. Maybe 15 minutes' drive from the airport. Walking distance to a couple of restaurants, and the B&B provides a list almost 2 pages long of places within a short driving distance. Individualized breakfast, at your convenience. The rooms are beautiful and unique, and definitely give you a feel of "stepping back in time". More than just "friendly service"--you feel like a family friend--if I'm ever back in Charleston, no question of where I'd stay!

Friends and I were in town for the license plate convention in Charleston. All rooms in traditional downtown hotels were sold out. The national tumbling championships were also being held at the same time. I didn't want a lot of commotion or noise, and wanted a place in a historic area of Charleston. I stumbled upon the Bed & Breakfast online while searching for properties which would offer me a "at home like" stay while I was away from home. Lisa and Laura are fantastic ladies who helped make our stay an outstanding one. We were with them 5 nights - it was so refreshing to have a nice retreat after all of the daily hustle/bustle of convention activities. The room was nicely appointed, clean, and cozy. We had the top floor, needing the larger room with the two twin beds. The bathroom was very clean and nicely appointed. The property is strategically located only a few houses from the state capital (what a view!) and the elegance of the properties near/on the Kanawha River. The hot breakfasts were scrumptious, featuring a local stunning variety of West Virginia bacon. Everyone joked as my friends know I love my bacon. The inn was quiet, relaxing, and just all-around stunning to be in. Friends from the convention not staying came to visit (they were welcomed) and were in awe - one friend/wife wanted to switch immediately to stay at the Inn, but unfortunately had been locked into a prepayment at one of the chain hotels downtown. There was an afternoon/evening tea/coffee service - with home-baked sweets available. In addition, there was a crudite/appetizer tray in the 'fridge with one of the most stunning pimiento cheese spreads I've had. One night, we were judging license plate displays, and by the time we were done, all of the restaurants in the downtown area were closed. So, our dinner was the crudite tray. Many thanks! You saved us! The Inn is located a few blocks from a trendy area, also near the capital, which has two very popular restaurants: Bluegrass Cafe, and Tricky Fish. Both are fun establishments to dine at - Tricky Fish has a great outdoor area. All within walking distance of Brass Pineapple. Also recommend Fazio's, in an industrial area of C'ton near the downtown. Fabulous food and supper-club atmosphere. Again, many thanks to the gals (one owner, one business manager) of the property for going out of their way to make our stay an outstanding one. When in Charleston again, I'll be back! Easy off-street parking, with easy on/off access to I-64. Many thanks ladies!

Ditto what Marcy said! My friend and I were in town for a hobby show for a week, and while all of our friends were packed into the big-name hotels downtown, we were very happy to come "home" to true comfort and hospitality all week. Lisa and Laura made us feel right at home, anticipating our every need. The location couldn't be better, on a charming tree-lined street with many well-kept Victorian homes, and within easy walking distance to the strollable Capitol grounds, a nice riverbank walk, and eclectic restaurants.

I usually stay in chain hotels as I travel for business. I lucked out when I stayed at the Brass Pineapple. The service is awesome. The rooms are clean , quiet with lovely ambience. The location is within walking distance of Capitol building, nice restaurants and a walking/running path along the river. There was self service coffee, tea and a wonderful homemade cake in the evening. For breakfast I had the best wheat pancakes ever! Oh and there is free internet and wifi for business travelers.
