It's often a tough task to choose where you'll be staying during your visit to Charleston, South Carolina. A plethora of options can be found on the peninsula, from small boutique hotels to large tower-like accommodations and quainter bed and breakfasts. Many regular visitors to Charleston would argue on the side of staying at a historic bed and breakfast when visiting the lowcountry, and with good reason. Staying in a stately mansion (such as Zero Water Street B&B) overlooking the Charleston harbor and Ft. Sumter, where the Civil War began, it's easy to imagine you lived here during another time.
Of course, not everyone is seeking the same amenities in a B&B. Luckily, Charleston offers up a wide variety of B&B accommodations across the peninsula. Those looking for a quiet, more private setting may prefer Lavender & Lace B&B, where each room has its own entrance, or 21 East Battery B&B, where breakfasts are stocked in-room.
Many visitors choose a B&B in order to get insider tips from the owners and socialize with other guests. The beautiful "Pink Palace" Palmer Home B&B and historic Two Meeting Street Inn are both ideal options for enjoying the company and advice of other visitors.
For the best of breakfast among Charleston B&Bs, look no further than The Ashley Inn adjacent to the medical district, or 1837 Bed & Breakfast on Wentworth Street. No matter which B&B you choose, you're likely to enjoy afternoon wine and cheese, evening treats, and the warmest hospitality you've ever encountered.
