  • Genuine luxury in an Historic Inn

    “We’ve spent many enjoyable days and nights in Charleston since misspending our youth there years ago, but we’d never stayed at the Governor’s House for some reason. Our recent visit there will most certainly not be our last! The house is truly historic (C. 1700s) and is located on Broad Street near the famous Four Corners of Law and walking distance (like most places in Charleston) from The Battery and other historic settings. The evening wine and cheese and the lovely breakfast were icing on the cake. Our room on the second floor had access (via floor to ceiling windows!) to a lovely piazza (that’s Charleston for “veranda”) and a beautiful king-sized four poster rice bed. All in all, a wonderful experience that we’d recommend to first-time visitors or returnees like us. ” – LaurinBaker

    Home from home

    “We spent a few nights at The Governor’s House Inn, on our trip to check out the local art galleries and antique stores. From the minute we arrived, it felt as if the other guests were extended family. The afternoon wine hour provided the perfect opportunity to share stories about our explorations of Charleston. At breakfast, we relaxed over delicious food and coffee while we got to know our housemates. Our rooms were lovely and well appointed. I’d love to come back when the weather affords us the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful verandas on the house. ” – Elaineaus Cary

    Food & Wine Festival Success!!!!

    “My Girlfriend and I enjoyed a fantastic weekend at The Governors house Inn for the food and wine festival. The location is amazing, we walked everywhere all weekend. Shopping is right around the corner on King St. Restaurants are everywhere, try 167 Raw and Halls. Rooms are very comfortable and the history of the home adds another level of enjoyment. We drank wine and sherry in the same rooms as George Washington did, which was very cool. The staff was very accommodating and the breakfast was fantastic! When you come to Charleston you need to stay here!” – Lee P

    Anniversary visit to Charleston

    “We stayed in the Independence Room which was well appointed. The breakfasts were very good and we particularly enjoyed the snack hour with wine and cheese and various other finger food. The house itself is a lesson in history and was very well kept. Innkeepers were quite cordial and accommodating. You could mingle with the other guests or find one of the rooms to have some time to yourself. My favorite was rocking on the porch and taking in the wonderful breezes and architecture all around.” – 1360 Atlanta

    Wonderful B & B!

    “My husband and I decided to make a trip to Charleston for our anniversary as it fell on a Saturday this year. I wanted something downtown in the historical district and The Governor’s House Inn seem to be exactly what I was looking for. I was not disappointed! Beautiful home in a great location! Bryan is such a compliment to this Inn. He made my husband and I feel very welcome. The breakfast both days we were there were superb! Also we were upgraded to a suite as construction was taking place near the room I had booked due to a recent winter storm. Will definitely for another visit!” – CarolLinaGirl2013

    Wonderful service, Beautiful Home…

    “My husband and I just returned home from a three day trip to Charleston and stayed in the Laurens room at The Governor’s House Inn. My sister and brother in law were with us and had a separate room/suite. We were impressed by how welcome the staff made us feel. Bryan and others were very kind and the breakfasts were delicious (not to mention the 5:00 social time where they served us homemade deviled eggs and other treats). The room was beautiful; as was the entire house and we enjoyed visiting with other guests who stayed there. We would definitely stay there again.” – 498djohnson

    Excellent accomodations

    “Great place to stay. The staff is wonderful and Brian helped us with dinner reservations a month in advance. He confirmed with us as the time drew closer. Great customer service.  We had the room with the king size bed downstairs and it was so roomy and comfy, especially since it was freezing outside. The location of the Governors House is truly THE best. We didn’t need to use our car the three days we were there as EVERYTHING is within walking distance and completely safe walking through the area, even at midnight. ” – Spunky14

    All needs/desires met and more

    “We were in Charleston for a wedding weekend. We wanted a pretty, romantic, historical inn or B & B centrally located in Charleston’s historical section. The Governor’s House Inn was that and more. It felt like we were guests of the people who built that beautiful mansion. There were large, well-appointed public rooms where you could meet other guests or meet your local friends. The homemade breakfasts were delicious and a great way to start the day and meet other guests. The late afternoon wine and appetizers were also delicious and a wonderful respite before going out for the evening. (I had to ask for the recipes, they were that good!) Our room on the second floor landing was gorgeous. I only wish the weather had been warm enough to use our room’s second story porch. Bryan, the manager and concierge was warm, hospitable, informative, and attentive. I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful place.” – Melanie H

    Xmas vacation

    “Absolutely wonderful for a getaway. This Inn met all my dreams. Our room was beautiful (Jefferson Suite-Kitchen House), the staff was helpful & accommodating from our late check in to me making a mess in the bathroom when the shower water went everywhere. Breakfasts were “delicioso”. The location is perfect, you can walk everywhere in historic Charleston. I would recommend this inn to everyone who wants a relaxing weekend.” – Lisa S
