  • Wonderful, romantic weekend getaway!

    The staff at the Mansion did everything they could to make our trip special. They upgraded us to a gorgeous mansion suite and even sent a bottle of champagne to our room. We felt like royalty for the weekend. The room had a working fireplace, a comfy bed, a huge bathroom, and a sitting area.

  • Ever wished you lived at Downton Abbey?

    The Wentworth is the quintessential Victorian Age hotel/mansion in Charleston. Every aspect of your stay is meant to take you back in time to the 1860s. From the fireplace in the bathroom to my private balcony, this journey could not have been nicer. Get back in time for the wine and horderves at 5pm. Take advantage of the port. Relax.

What to Do Within Two Blocks
of Wentworth Mansion

One of the best parts of staying at an inn (especially in Charleston) is that more often than not, they’re located in the middle of charming neighborhoods rather than busy main streets. It gives you the chance to wander the city by foot and get to see what the locals see, should you so choose. The Wentworth Mansion is no exception; located in the middle of one of the peninsula’s most beautiful historic districts, there’s plenty to see and do just a stone’s throw from the hotel doors.
