- John Rutledge House InnFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
The gorgeous exterior with its wrought iron fence bespeaks New Orleans. The brass plaque aside the impressive front entrance explains that this National Historic Landmark belonged to one of South Carolina’s most influential politicians ever. John Rutledge was a signer of the Constitution, some of which was written right here. George Washington visited (1791) and his portrait, along with one of Rutledge, adorns the hallway.
Step back into history in one of the elegant rooms so beautifully decorated to period. Yet, I have been known to sleep well on a modern Tempurpedic mattress.
Close your eyes as you sip your morning coffee in what was once a formal ballroom and see if you can imagine a nocturnal scene, when men wore wigs and ladies voluminous gowns.
One can order, what is a divine breakfast, for a time that suits, to be delivered to the ballroom, the guest room or the courtyard. Always there is a hot dish like shrimp and grits and a Continental spread. Late afternoon, a complimentary tea with some deliciousness is served. Sherry in a decanter is always close at hand.Recommended for:History Buffs
