BATTERY CARRIAGE HOUSE INN

The Battery Carriage House Inn is "No. 20 on the Battery," built in 1843, and the childhood summer home of the owner's grandmother. Beyond the wrought iron gates of No. 20 lies beautiful White Point Gardens in Charleston's Historic Residential District at the quiet end of the Battery overlooking Charleston Harbor.
Eight guestrooms are located in the old carriage house itself in the garden of the antebellum mansion, and another three rooms are on the ground floor. Each room has a private entrance and each is individually decorated. The atmosphere is not 'posh modern' but is garden-centered, history-laden, romantic and intimate. Of course, all conveniences are provided, including private steam bath shower units in some rooms, whirlpool tubs in others, computer hook-ups for business travelers, and a private phone line with answering machine in each room.
The most unusual room is a small suite which was the old cistern of the house! This extremely private lodging has its own sitting area under the porch.
Start your day with the deluxe continental breakfast served with the morning newspaper, either in your room or under the Lady Bankshire rose arbor. For dinner, it's just a 10- to 15-minute walk up High Battery to Charleston's celebrated selection of fine restaurants.
This is definitely the right spot for a gracious, relaxing, European-style getaway south of the Mason-Dixon line.
