My stay at 15 Church Street was highly enjoyable and I look forward to returning. The house is gorgeous and well maintained, and in a great location. The house borders one of Charleston most impressive homes, the Calhoun Mansion, the largest home in Charleston. You can reach almost anything interesting in Charleston from this house. 15 Church Street sets itself...

We frequent B&B's often when traveling. 15 Church Street is now by far one of my very favorites. The location is superb, located in the historic district on a quaint cobblestone lane. It's a 2-5 minute walk to the water and just under 15 minute walk the Straw Market section of the city. The homeowners were out of town the...

I loved this B&B- clean, tasteful, spacious. It is located near Battery Gardens, but the Historic downtown Charleston is easily within walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet, charming. Martha was our hostess- talkative, charming, warm. I wish we would have had more time to spend at this B&B. Will plan differently next time we are in town.

We recently returned from a week long stay at 15 Church Street. We had a marvelous time in Charleston, and staying with Jack & Annelise was the perfect choice. The house is in a great location, a quiet residential area about a block from High Battery and White Point Gardens. It is within walking distance of everything, even walking to...

Great experience!! This classic Charleston home is located a block off the Battery and ½ block from White Point Gardens. Your walk to anywhere will be through the most charming residential area of Charleston. Jack and Anneliese were marvelous hosts, warmly welcoming us, filling us in on the background of the house and of Charleston. Their recommendations for sights and...

Jack, Annelise, Martha and Leanne simply enjoy people, and do everything you could expect to make your stay at their home and in their city just a wonderful experience. It truly was like staying with friends. The home is lovely and relaxed -- from the very pleasant sitting and dining rooms, to the great big kitchen and wrap around porches,...

This was a very nice B&B in a relatively quiet area of Charleston. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were very good but I have had better at other B&Bs.

We chose this b&B based on other reviews and availability. The owners are very organized with prompt correspondence. We booked for two nights and due to an already busy season, we moved from one room to another for our two-night stay. They managed it for us after we left for a day of sightseeing. The owner helped us park in...

We had an abolutely great time. Jack, Annelise, and Martha (not forgetting Fran and Drifter) made us feel welcome and like we had arrived home. The breakfasts and social hours were wonderful. Jack had even made heart shaped pancakes for our anniversary! It really did feel like we had known them for a long time. The location cannot be beat....

Having just re-read previous reviews I would say " ditto " to all. Highlights were location, hosts Jack, Annalise, Martha and Leanne, southern happy hour, great breakfasts, breezy porches, and comfy. We can see why it was Trip Advisor's number one. We would love to repeat this totally memorable experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Now the home of Dr. & Mrs. Jack W. Simmons, Jr., the property was originally owned by Captain Timothy Phillips during the Revolution. The Snowden family constructed the present Greek Revival house in the early 1840's and it served as a hospital during the Civil War during which time it was struck by four cannonballs, two of which are now mounted on the gate posts. It is notable for ironwork by Charleston ironwright, Philip Simmons. ... more   less
