King Charles Inn
Head to the heart of downtown Charleston to experience one of the city’s gems: The King Charles Inn. Besides its luxurious amenities such as complimentary evening snacks and guest passes to the fitness center, one of the main draws of the inn is that Edgar Allen Poe stayed here. It’s also just a two-minute walk to King Street shops and relatively close to Waterfront Park and Sullivan’s Island beaches.
The Red Horse Inn
Located in Landrum, The Red Horse Inn offers a serene setting with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grab a glass of vino from the wine bar onsite, then relax as you watch the horses graze in the pastures nearby.
Andrew Pinckney Inn
Voted one of US Today’s 10 Unique Hotel Experiences, the Andrew Pinckney Inn is another offbeat lodging to consider when visiting Charleston. This historic venue fuses old-world charm with modern conveniences — and luxuries such as marble bathrooms, writing desks, and Juliet balconies.
The B&B at Mansfield Plantation
Georgetown’s Mansfield Plantation provides the charm of antebellum architecture and the picturesque vistas of Spanish moss-covered trees and the banks of the Black River. Feast on a buffet-style breakfast each morning during your stay. The bed and breakfast is situated between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, so it’s the perfect place to crash after spending the day (or a few days) in the sun and sand.
