Zero George Street
by: Angela Pham
To gorge + polar vortex escape.
Me + a friend.
The best part about Charleston: the consistently warm weather. Perfect escape from the NY snow… and the shrimp n' grits
The whole place oozes authentic charm. Our room was situated in this restored carriage house. Bike rental very much recommended for fortuitous finds (like this charming alleyway).
The "piazza," a more impressive way of saying "veranda," was the best place to enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine.
Our room, the garden suite.
B&Bs can so easily feel musty or old-fashioned, but Zero George strikes the right alluring note with their decor.
The enclave of buildings situated off the beaten track, away from downtown, provided privacy and much needed solitude.
Highs + Lows
Aesthetics. Very instagram-able Southern charm.
The serenity of the space. It's away from the bustle of downtown. Enjoy a book + glass of wine in the courtyard.
The cheese plate during wine hour. Really artfully done.
Our room didn't receive the best natural light. I'm sure other rooms have better light.
We wish they had free bikes on premises for guests. We rented from a nearby shop.

Charming + romantic, but not stodgy. Appealing and chic enough for two cosmopolitan girls in their twenties.
Off the beaten track, on a more residential road, but within close walking distance to downtown.

Leave them at home.
Typical B&B Prices, as costly as a nice hotel.
In the Area
Martha Lou's Kitchen, Morrison Drive, Charleston, SC, United States
From the outside, it looks like a decrepit pastel pink shack, but this is the best home-style food in town. Delicious mac n' cheese, fried chicken and collard greens.
Xiao Bao Biscuit
Xiao Bao Biscuit, Rutledge Avenue, Charleston, SC, United States
Charleston's answer to Mission Chinese, set in old gas station. A refreshing deviation from all the caloric Southern fare.

great designer vintage. Budget a good amount of time here, there's a huge inventory to peruse!
