Palmer's Pinckney Inn

Two-Night Stay for Two at Palmer’s Pinckney Inn in Charleston

Give as a Gift

Homey Inn Overlooking Historical Market

“It really gives you the feel of what Charleston might have been like in the beginning days,” says innkeeper Cindy Brunell of the property she watches over, Palmer’s Pinckney Inn. Constructed in 1868, the five-bedroom building looks out on the historical City Market, where Charlestonians have been buying, selling, and socializing for more than 200 years. Starting from the Greek Revival–style Market Hall—a National Historic Landmark built in the1840s—the cobblestoned area stretches for four blocks through a succession of market stalls where vendors hawk everything from antiques to the city’s famous sweet-grass baskets.

Palmer’s Pinckney Inn is located in the heart of it all but manages to retain an air of peacefulness and good manners. Brunell creates a homey and hospitable environment, welcoming new arrivals with cookies and pastries from Saffron Café and Bakery. There are five guest rooms to choose from, and each has its own style and amenities. The stately Charleston Rice room boasts a fireplace and a four-poster king-size bed carved from dark mahogany. The Equestrian room features muted, gold-colored walls, a pencil-post king-size bed, and a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom.

Guests are entitled to complimentary breakfast at the inn’s sister property, Palmer Home, which is located a 15-minute walk away. A fixture since 1848, Palmer Home serves a hearty, southern breakfast of biscuits, cheese grits, scrambled eggs, and fresh fruit. Inn guests are also welcome to take part in the Palmer Home’s wine and cheese afternoon social held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and to take dips or stage aquatic ballets in its outdoor pool.

Charleston: History, Southern Hospitality, and Thriving Culinary Scene

Saturated with southern charm, Charleston has managed to keep much of its historical flavor, thanks to its elegant antebellum mansions, steepled churches on nearly every corner, and gardens fragrant with jasmine. The city is made for strolling, with a wealth of restaurants and shops lining Broad Street, and horse-drawn carriage tours supply the feeling of traveling back in time without having to rely on a DeLorean in need of maintenance.

A testament to the city’s thriving culinary scene is the fact that for every year from 2008 to 2010, the James Beard Award for Best Southeast Chef went to a recipient based in Charleston. An abundance of fresh seafood from the Atlantic and a tradition of tasty southern cooking surely helped.

We so enjoyed our stay. The delicious breakfast at Palmer's on the battery was a delight, as well as having access to everything in the kitchen at Pinckney, was such a warm and homey touch. Look forward to a return visit!
