There’s no better way to enjoy the true charm of the South than visiting the low country of Charleston, South Carolina. But to really get the most out of your trip to the tip of the United States, step outside of the typical hotels and let yourself indulge in some luxury — and some history. These gorgeous bed and breakfasts, all located in historic downtown Charleston — will make you feel like you traveled a few hundred years back in time, at least for a weekend, anyway.
Welcome to Charleston's oldest inn, Two Meeting Street, with just nine airy bedrooms full of antiques� Tiffany stained-glass windows; Audubon prints; Venetian glass fixtures. Settle into one of the rocking chairs on the wraparound porch and take in the sunset over Battery Park.
As the sun begins to set, take a walk through the garden at the Battery Carriage House Inn, if you dare. The property is known as “Charleston’s Most Haunted Inn.” The public is welcome to hunt for specters around the inn’s grounds—be on the lookout for the two most common phantoms, the Gentleman Ghost and the Headless Torso.
