John Rutledge House Inn

View Website


Built in 1763 by John Rutledge, a signer of the U.S. Constitution, this is one of the only fifteen homes belonging to those signers to survive, and the only one to now accommodate overnight guests. Beautifully restored, the John Rutledge House Inn re-creates the experience of Colonial Charleston each afternoon as tea is served in the ballroom where presidents and patriots have met. Rates include breakfast served in the guest room, the ballroom, or in our courtyard, as well as evening turndown service with Godiva chocolates. Guests may choose from rooms and suites in the main house or in one of the Inn's two carriage houses. Located on historic Broad Street in the city's historic district and steps from the stunning homes South of Broad, our bed and breakfast offers the best of Charleston - gracious hospitality and nearly instant access to the antique and shopping districts, historic waterfront homes, and restaurants. From the breezy piazza to the beautiful rooms and the secluded courtyard, you'll feel like you've stepped back into Charleston's grand history.
