We finally got to stay at Post House Inn back in June, and the whole experience was so fun. After eating at the restaurant a few times, Tray and I talked about staying at the inn because it just felt so welcoming and the staff was always super friendly.
Upon check-in, we received the nicest, handwritten note and an old, antique key to our room.
It was really warm that day in Old Village, so the air conditioning had already been lowered for us and Room 1 was so inviting. The queen size bed was extremely comfortable as were the pillows.
The bathroom was full of amenities: plenty of towels, and Malin+Goetz products, and had a walk-in shower and small pedestal sink.
On the dresser, we found the most Southern touches at the mini bar, including an emergency bowtie, snacks and boxed water.
We lacked for nothing in our room, and every touch was so nice.
I always get the Pamplemousse cocktail, which includes absolut, vermouth, grapefruit, simple syrup and a salt rim. The menu describes it as the “ideal porch swing cocktail.”
For dinner, I had the bar steak which came with fingerling potatoes, taleggio and carrots from a local farm on John’s Island, and Tray had the fish and shrimp curry dish.
We were too full for dessert at the time, so the server suggested we could come back later in the evening for dessert or even have our dessert brought to our room.
The menu occasionally changes, but we’ve enjoyed lots of items on the menu.
Taking our server’s suggestion, we pushed dessert for later and instead changed clothes and hopped on bikes, which are free to use during your stay at the inn.
The humidity was low, so we took an extended bike ride through Old Village looking at all the stunning homes and made our way down to the Pitt Street Bridge to catch a clear view of downtown Charleston.
Later that night, we went back downstairs for our dessert. I had the flourless chocolate torte and Tray had the southern buttermilk pie.
The next morning, we easily found the coffee downstairs and then I checked some emails in the room.
During the week, a light continental breakfast is only served to guests staying at the inn, so it felt like we were eating breakfast in a personal friend’s home. The fresh fruit and croissant were so good.
After breakfast, I had some work to do, so I posted up on the back porch for a video meeting and some editing work. It was so serene to be able to work from such a comfortable and quiet spot. They had no problem with guests working in various nooks and crannies of the inn, which made it a really great remote working experience.
Tray and I only stayed one night, but we enjoyed every minute of our time on the Post House Inn property. We felt so welcomed and taken care of the entire time, and the staff went out of their way during our stay.
If you haven’t stayed at Post House Inn before, I highly recommend it for a little staycation or for one to two nights while you’re visiting Charleston.
And if you can’t get a spot in the inn, put it on your list as a must-eat spot for dinner.
