Why Stay At The Elliott House Inn
The location is key at Charleston's newly renovated Elliott House Inn: it's just a one-minute walk from King Street's boutiques.
Like many hotel gems in Charleston, the Elliott House Inn has excellent pedigree. In 1861, the 25-room property was a college dormitory of the College of Charleston, one of the city's touchstones. A recent upgrade polished the pine floors, added four-poster beds and rainfall showerheads, and otherwise freshened up the oak-shrouded spot, which surrounds a private courtyard. It's in this quiet garden where wine and cheese tastings are held each night from 5-6 p.m.; in the early mornings, guests can also bring the complimentary breakfast of freshly baked muffins and fruit underneath the trellis. Within easy walking distance are the shops on King Street and the Gibbs Museum of Art.
Request a private walking tour with licensed guide, Neil Cook, who doubles as the hotel's concierge.
The hotel has four beach cruisers stored on-site; they're perfect for pedaling the city's leafy streets.
Arrive at Charleston International Airport (CHS) which is approximately 14 miles from the Bed & Breakfast. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.78 Queen Street, Charleston, South Carolina, United States
