One of the fifty-five signers of the U.S. Constitution, John Rutledge built his stately home in 1763 at its famous Broad Street address. Through the centuries, Rutledge's home has been remodeled and repurposed, taking on its role as an inn in 1989. The inn's rich history tells stories of sipping afternoon tea with President George Washington, entertaining President William Howard Taft and whipping up the first-ever batch of She-Crab Soup. Be part the inn's living history and join us during your next visit to Charleston.
Enjoy hot breakfast delivered to your room each morning and unwind with afternoon tea, sherry or brandy on our breezy Broad Street balcony. The inn is dog-friendly and only steps away from art galleries, the Southeast's best restaurants and the city's breathtaking waterfront.
