Certificate of Excellence
The Governor's House Inn offers the rare pleasures, aristocratic comforts and romantic grandeur of a pre-revolutionary National Landmark. We are the only inn in America where you can sleep where a signer of the Declaration of Independence once lived. With magnificent drawing rooms, boudoir staterooms, and expansive veranda porches, it is no wonder that the former Governor's mansion was proclaimed the most glamorous of Charleston inns by Travel Holiday.

While many of the rooms have fireplaces we do not allow them to be used by guests. The liability for the property is too great a risk. I'm sorry.

There is one bedroom on the main level just off of the dining room. It is known as the Wagner Room and you may see pictures on the Inn's website.
