Welcome to The 1843 Battery Carriage House Inn

Charleston's Most Romantic Bed and Breakfast

For a truly remarkable vacation experience in the beautiful city of Charleston, discover the relaxing oasis that is the Battery Carriage House Inn.

Our historic Charleston Inn offers hotel accommodations in the middle of a serene, upscale residential neighborhood, just across the street from the Battery and the waters of Charleston Harbor. Guests can relax and unwind in one of our 11 intimate guestrooms, each of which is gracefully decorated to compliment the time and theme of its historical lineage and features amenities like an in-room coffeemaker, comfy cotton bathrobes, and a private entrance from our brick-lined carriageway and the Charleston gardens beyond.

The luxury of our Charleston Inn is found in the details, from the complimentary morning paper to our always-helpful concierge. Begin the day with our continental breakfast—light, healthy fare served in the lobby. Then, after a satisfying day of sightseeing and shopping, linger in the lobby to enjoy a glass of wine while you peruse our collection of local restaurant menus and mingle with guests, regaling each other with exciting tales of Charleston adventures and discoveries.

Beyond the gates of the Battery Carriage House Inn, you will experience the rich culture and classic elegance of our waterfront city. Our knowledgeable staff will be glad to suggest a day full of attractions and restaurants suited to your interests and tastes. Take a romantic stroll along the Battery overlooking Charleston Harbor or meander through the peaceful streets of the Historic District, loaded with quaint antique shops, art galleries, handmade gift shops, and countless historical attractions. Right around the corner is the Calhoun Mansion and the Nathaniel Russell House, and just up the block is the renowned “Four Corners of Law.” No matter how you spend your stay, remember to return to the comfortable retreat of our Inn just in time for cookies and our sweet Southern iced tea each afternoon.
