We (Jeff and I) visited Charleston, South Carolina for our 21st wedding anniversary celebration and a much needed restful and rejuvenating weekend at the Palmers Pinkeney Bed & Breakfast in the downtown historic district, a frequent place for us to stay.
While the Pinkeney needs a lot of tender loving care, it is in the heart of history, the beds are comfortable (and they are king sized), and it's private piazza is lovely for morning coffee or making plans for our days activities, as the city awakens. And yes, we heard the city awakening as we were on the first floor, near street level.
Our room has that old world southern charm and the table lamps are hideous. Jeff even commented, "The lamps are still here!" Truly hideous lamps.
Since the Bed & Breakfast for us is mostly its location we just aren't complaining. I do so wish the owners would give it some lovin' though. Unbelievably, we were able to find a parking space just steps away from the B & B. Parking is not free (about $20 a day if your car sets still) but we happened upon a broken meter, called the number to log it out (leaving our name and phone number) and left a note on our truck. But, alas, all weekend, no meter maid appeared.
