Description

Circa 1842. (OP2018-00195) If you are looking for an authentic Charleston experience and not just a room, this is the inn for you. (Call directly for the lowest rates - 843-722-7602.) Your stay includes a full hot breakfast, parking, and a Charleston Social Hour (no cheap wine allowed). The Phillips-Yates-Snowden House is now the home of Dr. & Mrs. Jack W. Simmons, Jr. The property was originally owned by Captain Timothy Phillips during the Revolution. The Yates family constructed the present house in the early 1840s and it served as a hospital during the Civil War during which time it was struck by four cannonballs, two of which are now mounted on the gate posts. It is notable for its Adam style paneling by Thomas Pinckney and ironwork by Charleston iron-wright, Philip Simmons, his most recent addition (1998) being the basement gate at the front. The Earthquake of 1886 leveled the 4th story, which was rebuilt with a Mansard roof. Subsequent to this, the structure was reinforced with "earthquake rods", bolts running through the house between the exterior walls. Almost 100 years later, in bringing the structure up to code, this same technology was used with the addition of nine more bolts.

Home Away From Home in Charleston

Jack and Annelise welcome you with open arms like welcoming family and treat you that way. The house is historic, quiet and close to everything. The service was wonderful - we did not want for anything (you will love the Julie's!). Jack went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and joined us at social hour for drinks on the porch to check on our day and give us ideas of what to do next. The rates are more than reasonable and we will be returning on our next trip!

Great Stay in Charleston!

As part of an Anniversary trip, my wife and I visited Charleston and had the pleasure of staying in the home of Jack and Annelise. They were wonderful hosts and made us immediately feel welcome! We loved learning about the history of their home and the neighborhood plus really enjoyed the wine and cheese social hour and breakfast. A highlight was the opportunity to visit with Jack, Annelise and the other guests. The location was great and we had a very memorable experience! Annelise went "above and beyond" by driving us into town when we were running late for our carriage ride!

Southern Charm

We couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay for our first visit to Charleston than 15 Church St. Our hosts, Jack and Annalise, were very gracious and welcoming...true southern hospitality. We’d reserved the Rose Room for the week but discovered that the Carriage House was available for 4 nights in the middle of our stay, so we ‘upgraded’...worth every penny! Both rooms are lovely. The Rose Room is spacious and offers a glimpse of the harbor and beautiful sunrise views. The Carriage House is more spacious and worked out well for our needs. After a long day of walking (and I do mean walking!) we looked forward to the evening wine social where very nice wines, craft beer, and artisan cheeses were offered. It was a fun, relaxing time to gather with the other guests, along with Jack and Annalise, to talk about our day. And it wasn’t a gratuitous inquiry...they were really interested in what we’d done and seen, where we ate, and recommended other restaurants and points of interest to explore. The house is really lovely; the rooms were well appointed and very clean with plenty of towels. There was a guest kitchen area where we were welcome to put our refrigerated items, a Keurig, microwave, etc. Their helpers, Julie I and Julie II were great, too and eager to answer questions or assist us if we needed something. This was by far my favorite vacation, made extra special by our wonderful hosts, and we’re already planning our next trip!

Fantastic B&B, ideal for experiencing Charleston

My wife and I had a wonderful stay here. The house is beautiful, the location in Charleston is ideal, and Jack and Annelise are the most welcoming hosts imaginable. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if we return to Charleston. (Which we definitely hope to do!) All in all, we thought this was the finest B&B we've stayed at. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Excellent location,warm hosts

We have just returned from our 1st trip to Charleston and had a fantastic time at 15 church street. Jack and Annelise truly love their home and city and enjoyed sharing the history of both. The home is in the historic district and easy walking to just about everything. They provide bikes, free to use which was very nice. We stayed in the Blue room, which had a very comfortable bed, and ample closet and storage. The huge porch was a wonderful place to start your day with a cup of tea or coffee.

Beautiful B&B in Historic Charleston

This is a beautiful property located in the heart of the historic district of Charleston. This was our first visit to Charleston and found that this location was within walking distance to restaurants, shops, parks, and sights. We stayed in the Carriage House with our three children and loved it! The property is wonderful and so were Jack and Annelise. Their hospitality can't be beaten and they had a lot of great information to share about the history of the town, places to eat and things to see and do. We can't wait to visit again!

This was my second visit to Charleston staying in the Carriage House of this beautiful home. The owners, Jack and Annelise, bring their home back to life as soon as you enter with their warm southern hospitality, the wonderful breakfasts and the social hour in the evenings. Conveniently located in a beautiful part of the Historic District this home has it all. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home..I look forward to my next visit!

15 Church is like a home away from home -- Jack and Annelise are warm and friendly hosts -- each afternoon they treat their guests to first-class wines, premium, locally brewed beers, and excellent cheeses on their lovely veranda -- the location for me was ideal -- 1/2 block from the waterfront -- with easy access to some of Charleston's finest homes -- Jack and Annelise represent Charleston hospitality at its best

Repeat Enthusiast

Back to Charleston after only a short interval, but determined to stay again at Jack's and Annelise's house. I wanted to show the best of Southern grace to my son, on holiday from college and new to this region. I thought that visiting a place of history and tradition is not just a matter of walking through the city, and taking a good "selfie" for our friends back home; so I am grateful to the Simmons family for adding their personal dimension to our discovery of their enchanting city. I almost forgot to mention that welcome, rooms, breakfast, helpful advice, all was perfect.

Fabulous Stay at 15 Church Street

This was a first visit to Charleston and Jack and Annalise provided an amazing experience. We selected 15 Church Street from reading reviews and their hospitality proved to be a wonderful inviting experience. They were attentive and provided so much history of Charleston and the surrounding area. The house is in a perfect location right off the battery within walking distance of home tours and restaurants. The accommodations were very lovely, well appointed, and spotless. Frannie the dog and Drifter the cat were delightful companions at cocktail hour and breakfast. We couldn't have been more pleased with their hospitality, the breakfasts, the location, and the accommodations at 15 Church Street.

Charleston's Best

Our stay with Jack & Annelise was one of the most memorable stays we have ever had. They were attentive, charming, and their home is inviting and Charleston elegant. It is right off the battery within walking distance of home tours and restaurants with delicious food like Magnolia's on Bay St. Frannie the dog and Drifter the cat were boon companions at cocktail hour and breakfast. We couldn't have been more pleased and I recommend the Simmons to everyone.

Southern Charmers

We just returned from our first visit to Charleston, an experience we’ll never forget thanks to the hospitality of Jack and Annalise. Right from the start we were welcomed like old friends. The house is lovely, and the accommodations were very well appointed and spotless. We had reserved the Rose Room for the week, but discovered the Carriage House was available for 4 nights in the middle of our stay. Hubby and I looked at each other and said ‘why not?!’ Both were wonderful, and the sunrise over the harbor, which can be seen from the Rose Room, was spectacular. Jack and Annalise’s dining recommendations and suggested points of interest were greatly appreciated. The breakfast delicious and plentiful, but our favorite time of day was definitely the evening social hour! And we’re not talking jug wine and medium cheddar! Craft beer, fine wine, tasty artisan cheese,,,and always lively conversations with our hosts and fellow guests. It was a wonderful experience and we’re already talking about our next visit to this amazing city.

Fabulous Charleston Experience

I enjoyed a wonderful birthday vacation in the perfect B & B on Church Street. Jack and Annelise were delightful hosts and enjoyed breakfast, conversation and social hour. Our room was comfortable, cool and had a fabulous view of the river. I was a block away from a terrific waterfront run and bicycles were available for touring as well. Thank you for a great time and hope to return in the future to your beautiful city and home!

This is the place!

Jack and Annelise are the quintessential hosts you would expect when looking for southern hospitality. Their historic home is beautifully decorated and designed to make everyone feel welcome. We were greeted with some chilled wine, tasty cheese, and lots of information about the area and how to navigate it. We stayed in the Cypress Room and it was great. Roomy, well appointed, comfy beds, and a private bathroom. The breakfast offered a lot of choices, from grits to eggs to yogurt to fresh fruit and more. The house is just a block from the water in a quiet and historic neighborhood, and within a beautiful strolling distance to downtown. We will definitely be back to Charleston to drink in more of the sights, and 15 Church Street will most certainly be our home base. Thank you Jack and Annelise for your time, attention, and opening up your beautiful home to us.

Charleston B&B at its best

Located on beautiful Church St exactly a half block from the Battery. It's an easy walk to the best Restaurants and points of interest in Charleston. The home is beautifully decorated in family and Charleston history. I can not say enough about our hosts and proprietors of this wonderful B&B. Jack and Annelise make you feel right at home from your first step inside the door. Our room was the Rose room. Beautifully decorated with a view of Charleston Harbour. They took care of the smallest details of our stay. Jack assisted me in arranging for flowers to be delivered to our room prior to our arrival. The breakfasts were of a variety and times to dine were very flexible. But most of all. What we took away from our stay the most, was the new friendship we had with Jack and Annelise. I highly recommend you give 15 Church St. a visit!

This is a beautiful property located in the heart of the historic district of Charleston. This was our first visit to Charleston and found that this location was within walking distance to restaurants, shops, parks and sights. We stayed in the Carriage House with our three children and loved it! The property is wonderful and so were Jack and Annelise. Their hospitality can't be beat and they had a lot of great information to share about the history of the town, places to eat and things to see and do. We can't wait to visit again!

2 grand people and an amazing B&B!

Our daughter planned the trip to 15 Church Street for a special birthday. Our 4-night stay in the Carriage House was the perfect venue for a family get-together. Driving back to Florida we wrote down some thoughts/memories and couldn’t wait to write a glowing review of our experience. Then we read the other reviews and found everything conceivable had already been said! Southern hospitality at its finest, heart of historic district, beautiful house, accommodating, gracious and elegant, home away from home, lovely and charming, wonderful attentive hosts, silver and fine china, southern social hour (which we now plan to imitate) and the list goes on. Read the numerous reviews and keep in mind, we agree wholeheartedly with them! Please remember, all of this only works because of Annelise and Jack Simmons. They are the epitome of southern hospitality and have mastered the art of being the perfect hosts. These people really know what they’re doing and you will be the beneficiary, as we were. Thank you Annelise and Jack for welcoming us into your lovely home and sending us on our way with many special memories. We couldn’t have been more pleased.

Fabulous Stay at 15 Church Street

This was a first visit to Charleston and Jack and Annalise provided an amazing experience. We selected 15 Church Street from reading reviews and their hospitality proved to be a wonderful inviting experience. They were attentive and provided so much history of Charleston and the surrounding area. The house is in a perfect location right off the battery within walking distance of home tours and restaurants. The accommodations were very lovely, well appointed, and spotless. Frannie the dog and Drifter the cat were delightful companions at cocktail hour and breakfast. We couldn't have been more pleased with their hospitality, the breakfasts, the location, and the accommodations at 15 Church Street.

A Magical Gem in Charleston

We have been guests at 15 Church St. three times now and it's hands down the best B&B we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in quite a few both here and in Europe. The home is elegant and beautiful, breakfasts delightful, social hour not-to-be-missed and the hosts truly wonderful. We love exploring the beautiful old part of Charleston but the high point each time is our stay at this gracious B&B operated by Jack and Annelise.

Perfect B & B

My sister, daughter and I stayed here in March of 2018 and absolutely loved it. The location, spacious and light room (the Rose Room) we stayed in, the beautiful house and location, and most of all the hosts Jack and Annelise made our stay there perfect! Our hosts were always available with recommendations and hosted a social hour in the evenings which we enjoyed. Their cat and dog were fun too and we appreciated having bikes to take out on a ride around town.

Charleston's Best

Our stay with Jack & Annelise was one of the most memorable stays we have ever had. They were attentive, charming, and their home is inviting and Charleston elegant. It is right off the battery within walking distance of home tours and restaurants with delicious food like Magnolia's on Bay St. Frannie the dog and Drifter the cat were boon companions at cocktail hour and breakfast. We couldn't have been more pleased and I recommend the Simmons to everyone.

Perfection

We have been making regular visits to Charleston for the last 25 years - and somewhere along the way we found our way to 15 Church St, which was a fortunate thing because now we will not stay anywhere else in the city. Not only are we multiple "repeat offenders" (that's what Jack calls returning guests...), but we have stayed in every guest room at least once. The location is truly ideal, the house is spectacular, and the breakfasts are fantastic - and beyond generous (the fluffy Virginia pancakes on Sundays are always a favorite...) But what makes the place truly special are the hosts, Annelise and Jack. You simply will not find a better way to experience the magic of Charleston.

Our Family's Best B&B Stay!

Our family has traveled and stayed at many Bed & Breakfasts in the U.S. and abroad, and we cannot compare any to our stay here! We stayed at 15 Church St. in August of 2017 in the carriage house and absolutely loved it. We were treated with the most hospitality, as Jack and Annelise sat with us on the porch before breakfast, hosted the most wonderful social hours, and even offered to drive us around town to some of our dinner reservations and/or offered detailed directions. We felt included as family with them and their wonderful dogs as we got to know them throughout the day and the social hours! We have friends visiting Charleston and have already recommended this location!

Happy Days in Charleston

4 couples from Tidewater, VA headed to Charleston in February to attend the SEWE Expo and explore the city. We are greeted by our charming hosts, Annelise and Jack, and the fun began. The historic house is beautifully decorated and comfortable and offers 3 large rooms with private bath in the main house and 2 smaller rooms with private bath in attached Carriage House. Every afternoon we gathered on the piazza for Social Hour and shared our day’s activities with our hosts. Annelise’s vast knowledge of the area, its history and culture provided us with much information and suggestions for future activities. The house is conveniently located to shopping, historic sights and restaurants all within easy walking distance. Each morning we were treated to a delightful breakfast southern style seated around a beautifully set table. Sunday morning we were treated to the BEST fluffy pancakes. We had a wonderful 4 day visit to Charleston and all wish to return. Annelise and Jack are outstanding hosts and will make your stay a memorable experience.

Lovely place to stay

My husband and I have attended Charleston's Spoleto Festival since its inception, and have stayed in various B&B's there over the past 40 years or so. This one has become our favorite.The house is both elegant and homey; the porch most inviting; the breakfasts excellent; the owners very friendly and accommodating. I can't imagine we'd stay anywhere else from here on in!

Great location, hosts, food! wonderful experience

We stayed at the recommendation of my son and daughter-in-law. Jack and Annelise were generous hosts not only with the "spot on" sightseeing tips, but also with the daily "cocktail" hour and delicious breakfasts served with fine china and silver. Their beautiful home exuded true southern style and comfort: part heirloom and part local treasures. I could not be more pleased at our accommodations situated in a lovely, historic neighborhood within walking distance to the ocean and so many sites. We will be back for another great escape from Wisconsin.

A thrill to stay here

Dr. Jack and Annelise are such wonderful and caring hosts. You actually get to stay in the house where Dr. Jack was raised. You cannot get much more authentic than that. Annelise teaches 4th grade and the history she can provide about Charleston is amazing, and she loves to share it. I learned so much from her. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating. The next time we go to Charleston we plan to stay in their carriage house. And if you love pets, their dog and cats are the sweetest things around. Located south of Broad St. they are located in easy walking distance to most of the attractions you would want to visit.

Simply the Best

Jack and Annelise are themselves interesting people, and they do a wonderful job of establishing a warm and comfortable atmosphere in their home, so allowing each guest to discover just how interesting his (or her) fellow guests are. Add the fact that Jack and Annelise know everyone and everything about Charleston, and you have the most pleasant B&B experience possible.

Perfection for Inn lovers!

My wife and I stayed here from Oct. 1st to Oct 16th 2018 and found the place (and the City!) delightful. We stayed in the carriage house and made full use of the living room, dining room and kitchen. It was great. The main house is an old, elegant Charleston home. The hosts, Annalise and Jack, sincerely wanted their guests to enjoy their stay and went out of their way to provide a delightful, friendly, and informative home base for us during our visit. The Inn is in the wonderful "South of Broad" neighborhood and walks to and from restaurants, galleries, and etc. were enriched by peaking in to all the gates and gardens with water fountains splashing to add to the romance. It was one of the best Inn visits we have had in over 50 years of Inn staying. Martin And Donna

A Delightful two week stay in a Carriage House in Charleston

My husband and I booked a two week stay at the Carriage House at 15 Church Street. We couldn't have been more delighted! The Main house, a Classic treasure, was delightful and has rooms to stay in that are lovely. We chose the carriage house with a separate entrance, a kitchenette, very sweet dining room, two bedrooms and a very lovely living room. We felt at home. Our hosts, Jack and Annalise couldn't have been more accomodating, they realy do love their guests and make them feel at home. From tea in the morning on the piazza, to sipping a delicious glass or wine with cheese delights, Annalise and Jack were gracious in every way. And the two Julies were helpful and attentive in every way. The location is fabulous and you can have a car if you need one. All in all we would love to come back, we felt like family.

InnSide Tip - We loved the carriage house!
The streets at night twinkled in the area we stayed in. During the day the fountains splashed and the gardens were treasures. The city has tons of restaurants, we loved SNOB, Slightly North of Broad. Make reservations way ahead of time. The city has so much history to offer, but don't miss the beaches. We loved Folly beaches pier!
