As pretty as a wedding cake, this 1892 Queen Anne–style mansion wears overhanging bays, colonnades, balustrades, and a turret; two original Tiffany stained-glass windows (worth as much as the house itself), carved-oak paneling, and a crystal chandelier dress up the public spaces. While rocking on the front porch you can look through soaring arches to White Point Gardens with the Ashley River beyond. Some guest rooms have verandas and working fireplaces. Expect to be
treated to afternoon high tea as well as a delightful, creative Southern breakfast that includes specialties like crème brûlée French toast.
