Our Inns & Restaurants

Kings Courtyard Inn

Fulton Lane Inn

Tucked away mere steps from King Street’s energy and excitement, the Fulton Lane Inn offers a serene and intimate escape into warm hospitality, Southern charm, and quiet comforts, while its crisp, clean style recalls a holiday hideaway where surroundings reflect the natural beauty of our nearby waterways and beaches.

    • "Amazing hospitality and service!"
      I wanted to express my gratitude to your entire staff for the amazing hospitality and service that our entire group received on our trip! Most of our group had never been to Charleston and they certainly got a great impression of your amazing city at Kings Courtyard Inn! We hope to be back soon, and I will definitely recommend others to stay with you!

    • "Charm in Charleston"
      The Rutledge Inn is by far one of the best Bed & Breakfast experiences you will ever have. Imagine staying in a home built in 1763 restored to its original splendor - imagine walking into the courtyard for breakfast and smelling the Jasmin from the garden - imagine enjoying afternoon tea in the ballroom or terrace overlooking Broad Street - imagine sipping a port or brandy in the evening as you prepare to experience Charleston - imagine having a wonderful breakfast prepared to your liking every day and delivered to your room, the courtyard or the ballroom to enjoy. The John Rutledge House Inn is all that and more. The property, the staff and the history of this home will make your Charleston experience special in every way. We celebrated our anniversary here and it was just perfect. Highly recommended!

    • "First visit…"
      We stayed at this lovely inn located in the historic district of downtown Charleston during the holidays. Our room was steps away from wonderful shops and restaurants. City Market a five minute walk. The concierge was exceptional who goes above and beyond to accommodate guests. A daily wine reception is offered as well. Off street parking is a plus. We highly recommend Kings Courtyard Inn and look forward to our next visit.

    • “Quietly Luxurious”
      Such a beautiful hotel, yet never feels overwhelming, busy/chaotic. The location is perfect (quiet neighborhood but a stone’s throw away from action), the service was excellent (they attend to every detail/need, all with tremendous class). Despite the luxury, it felt comfortable, even homey. Would go back in a heartbeat.
