Overview

An 1860s mansion turned B&B with a palm-shaded courtyard and an oversized Jacuzzi

The Lowdown

This southern belle, a peach-tinged mansion with black shutters and gracious white balconies, has been laying on the charm since the 1860s. Regal fountains, tropical plants and an outdoor hot tub encourage guests to relax Low Country style. Rooms romance with elegant armoires, hardwood floors and four-poster beds. And after an afternoon around frozen-in-time Charleston, perhaps on a free hotel bike, nearby 82 Queen restaurant will deliver gourmet eats like pistachio and parmesan-crusted scallops to savor in-room.

In the Area

Located on historic Queen Street, it’s easy to get lulled into the sweet tea pace of Charleston’s genteel charms. Historic promenades, stately colonnaded homes and streets lined in palm trees and Spanish moss make it a perfect city for strolling. Shop for 18th and 19th century furniture and décor at Tucker Payne Antiques. Tour gracious Civil War–era plantations like Drayton Hall, Middleton Place, and Boone Hall or take in a show at Dock Street Theatre, America’s oldest playhouse. Charleston has led the way in the renaissance of Southern food. Taste your way through its innovative kitchens by scoring tables at the James Beard chef-helmed McCrady’s, the hip locavore FIG and Bon Appetit favorite Husk.

Slept like a baby
Harold G

Although the stay wasn't 100% perfect, it was exactly what we expected and hoped for. The room and facility was charming, workers treated us like family and created an experience we want to repeat. The only negative was a little dust inside the AC unit and we found someone's leftover cookie in the fridge. Everything else was positive and perfect.

The Elliot house is great - great location, great wine reception and Matthew provides great service

The Elliot House is a great place to stay! Matthew was the best receptionist, the wine and cheese reception is great, the bed was very comfortable and the location is the best. Public parking is across the street for $10 a day which was very convenient.

Our Elliott House experience
BoardingPass450822

Staying at the Elliott House is a wonderful experience. Everyone working there is polite, accommodating, and help make ones stay extra enjoyable. The wine and cheese gathering in the courtyard along with Continental breakfast delivered to your room are an extra unexpected bonus! Elliott House is located in the downtown historical part of Charleston which makes walking an easy access to all the sights, shopping, and good restaurants. We enjoyed EH so much that we cut our Beaufort stay short to spend our last night back at Elliott House!
