  • This place was awesome. If you want some history, you need to visit. To actually stand in the same room the George Washington stayed in is remarkable. The house is in wonderful shape, the museum has done a great job to restore a piece of history.
  • One of the most historic homes in Charleston. Was rented by George Washington for 8 days after the revolutionary war. Very much worth seeing for how life was lived at the time.
  • Cool Georgian home in a beautiful city. A must see gorgeous architecture and design enthusiasts. Give yourself a full day at least to tour the city.
  • Such a great way to learn about Charleston architecture, early days of the Revolutionary War, and the life of slaves in Charleston in the time period.
  • Loved the history of this beautiful home. Definitely get the group tickets at the museum for the museum and the two historical homes.

Where to stay in Charleston

Charleston is serviced by dozens of local hotels and practically every major U.S. chain. Expect to pay top dollar for a room on the downtown peninsula, particularly if you wish to stay in one of the historic hotels. The upside of taking a room there is the proximity of all major attractions--you won't need a car to explore and enjoy your visit. Less expensive options are available in North Charleston, West Ashley, and Mount Pleasant, where you'll find all kinds of inns for the budget-conscious traveler.
