About Ms. Vaughan Alsbrook
I've lived in the Historic District most of my life and love seeing it anew through our guests' eyes! There is so much to tell about our history and culture. We think of our guests as long lost cousins who have finally decided to come for a visit! True Southern Hospitality is not a veneer; it is an expression of the graciousness modeled by generations of those who reared us.

Why Ms. Vaughan Alsbrook chose Downtown Charleston
Old fragile deeds reveal there has been a home at 22 Charlotte St. since 1811. I fell under the spell of the Maria Smith House when I brought my child for a play date when he was in kindergarten. I hadn't been here long before I felt an intuitive connection and within a year, I had bought it. I tore everything back to the studs in a major renovation, essentially preparing it for the next century with new everything in the walls. Its T-shaped floor plan is very unusual in the Historic District and makes it function perfectly with privacy for our guests. We have an adorable private cottage in the yard. Our big porches are lovely for late afternoon cocktails and we usually have music on. It's a relaxed atmosphere and close to everything people want to see and do downtown, the restaurants and historic attractions.
What makes this bed & breakfast unique
It is rare to have such a lovely house as strong as a fortress, with its unique floor plan, huge rooms, big side yard, off-street parking, and a separate cottage -- all in such a nice tree-lined neighborhood. Sometimes in the Historic District you get a few of these things, but not all. We are incredibly blessed to live here! It's fun to share it and to get to know such interesting guests. We try not to intrude and let the guests indicate to us how much they want to be left alone, which is fine too! We've had some amazing conversations over a glass of wine with people who want to know about what it is like to live here, why our culture is different, and how it all came to be, starting hundreds of years ago with intrepid people who came over on those tiny boats.
