"If you want the home-away-from-home experience-provided your home is a grand lady from 256 years ago- the John Rutledge House Inn is a fantastic choice. The concierge staff goes out of their way to help tourists in all ways, which we took advantage of, from restaurant reservations to advice on the area plantations. There was always a friendly interaction on coming and going."
