When staying in Charleston I highly recommend these Bed and Breakfast establishments. They are first class in every way!

The Ashley and Cannonboro Inns
The Barksdale House Inn

A trip to the South Carolina Lowcountry
    is not complete without a visit to one of the sea islands.
    I highly recommend Edisto Island and a terrific van tour with
    a true native of the island, Dottie Thomas.  You will visit
    the private grounds of beautiful old homes, Edisto's plantations,
    and see the historic churches.  Dottie will take you inside The
    Presbyterian Church.  The stories she tells about this wonderful,
    moss draped island will both entertain and fascinate you.

Dottie's tour is 2 - 2 1/2 hours.

The cost is $20 per adult.
    For groups of 4 or more, $15 per adult.

Tours are given Monday - Friday mornings, and reservations are required.

You may reach Dottie at (843) 869-1984.

Edisto Island Tour
Featuring a selection of your favorite foods served in the Lowcountry.

The Old Post Office restaurant on Edisto is back in business and charged with new energy. The property was purchased by Adam and Toniann Morris. The Morrises held down their day jobs and worked on renovating the restaurant in their "spare" time. They put their stamp of approval on their handiwork and opened to the public in April, 2009.

A cream-colored facade presents a shiny, new face for the Old Post Office Restaurant. A side garden complete with a tiered fountain welcomes you into the screened entry. A collection of antique stamp machines decorate the space, the original mail boxes were left in place, and a variety of postal stamp motifs are used for their menu and collateral pieces. They named the water closets the "mail room" and "femail room" and have transformed their sweat equity into a cheerful, pleasant dining room.
