John Rutledge House Inn

116 Broad St., Charleston, South Carolina, 29401, USA

In 1791, George Washington visited this elegant mansion, then the residence of one of South Carolina's most influential politicians, John Rutledge; you can follow in his footsteps by booking one of the spacious accommodations within this National Historic Landmark. The New Orleans–esque exterior has wrought-iron architectural details, and inside, parquet floors sit beneath 14-foot ceilings adorned with plaster moldings. Families gravitate to the privacy and quiet of the two carriage houses overlooking the shaded brick courtyard. A scrumptious afternoon tea is served in the former ballroom. Breakfast—continental as well as at least one hot item—can be taken in the ballroom, the elegant but simple courtyard, or your room.
