We recently visited Charleston for the first time and our stay at 15 Church street made our visit memorable. Jack and Annelise are excellent hosts who work hard to put their guests at ease in their home. Excellent location on a beautiful residential street in the historic district and a block from the battery. We were happy with their policy... More

We have enjoyed staying at B&B's and historic inns and hotels over the last 25 years or so in our travels across this Great Country and Canada. Some are more memorable than others.

We stayed at the 15 Church Street B&B recently (late March 2012). The other reviewers are correct--this place is excellent! The location is perfect in the historic district, walking distance to almost everything. And the hosts, Jack and Annelise Simmons, are wonderful! Very gracious and welcoming. True Southern hospitality. Before even arriving in Charleston, Jack gave me suggestions about where... More

We stayed with Jack and Annelise the weekend of March 30 for our son's impromptu wedding and could not have ordered up a more perfect place to stay.

There is a reason 15 Church Street is the top rated B&B on Trip Advisor... actually many reasons. The house, accommodations, location, and hospitality cannot be beat. The house and accommodations are very nice, a traditional Charleston "single house" with double piazza (porch). Secondly, the house is in a great location - right in the battery. You are within 15...
