A Dream Come True

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most beautiful properties in Charleston. Believe it or not, these gorgeous pictures do not do it justice. The gardens are world-class, the house is exquisite, and our hostess was the essence of southern charm. We kept wishing the house belonged to us. Absolute perfection in every way - location, decor, amazing breakfast (with flowers and the New York Times). Can't imagine a better experience!!!!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

While I had read all the excellent reviews, this house was even better than I expected. It was beautifully furnished much as someone's home might be. The gardens were amazing and the on site parking made it easy for us. Betsy, our hostess was wonderful. Never intrusive, but always available if we had questions. She was a delight. The day started with a newspaper and flowers left on the door step. The coffee was made and just a push of a button away. At the agreed upon time, she knocked on our door with a delicious breakfast. I can't say enough good things about the owner and the Wortham House.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

First, our hosts could not have been more pleasant and helpful. We were in Charleston for a family wedding- in the middle of the 1000 year floods! The Johnsons helped in ways that were above and beyond what one could expect or hope for.

The carriage house is GORGEOUS, sparkling clean, comfortable, spacious, nicely furnished, user friendly, and in a great location.

The gardens are FABULOUS, even in the rain! (There were no flooding issues at this location, just all around us) It is very obvious that the hosts take tremendous pride in the property (deservedly). The off-street parking is a real plus.

The breakfasts were great and abundant. The hosts were always available if needed, but not at all intrusive. They brought some additional current books, even though the house is well stocked with books and magazines.

It would be very difficult to think of anything that could have improved our stay at the Wortham House. We can't wait to go back!!

We can't thank Betsy & Gene enough for their attention to detail and southern charm!! It's the most beautiful place in Charleston (in my humble opinion) and we will DEFINITELY be back to enjoy this wonderful place on earth again, and again, and again!!! :D

Charming gem in the center of the city

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six women arrived for a 40th birthday weekend, and were absolutely delighted with everything about the Carriage House. Betsy is the perfect hostess, and the historic home is comfortable and inviting. The garden is a sublime place to relax, with just a short walk to the harbor, shopping and restaurants. Thank you for helping us have a perfect weekend!

Aussie Mum and Daughters USA road trip 2015

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is meticulously restored and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The location is great. We did not have a car but were able to walk into the downtown area and it is located close to where the evening blues cruises leave from. Betsy is everything that a B & B host should be - generous, informative, knowledgeable and so hospitable. There were 4 of us staying in the carriage house and there was more than enough room for us. Betsy would arrive each morning with a fresh posy of flowers picked from her award winning garden and delicious supplies for breakfast.

This stay was the highlight of our USA holiday. Thank you Betsy for sharing your beautiful home with us.
