City Centre Inn is just a short walk from the best restaurants, shops, and entertainment downtown Charleston has to offer. This is an opportunity that does not come up often, to take over a successful business while living in the heart of the number one city in the world.

The second floor carriage house just above the Mod Suite is known as the MacKenzie Suite and includes a bedroom, sizable open living room, and full kitchen, as well as a newly updated spa-like bathroom with dual vanity sinks and a spacious glass doored shower. The suite enjoys a private entrance with outdoor seating and has newly installed centralized air conditioning and heating.

This suite will currently sleep three guest with its comfortable living space that features a day bed.

The second story Mary Scott Suite offers ten foot ceilings, original hardwood floors and a charming historic fireplace. Its beautifully updated bathroom features marble countertops, glass doored shower, and private toilet area surrounded by exposed brick. A small breakfast bar and library kitchenette sits among built-in cabinets and a small seating area, the perfect perch from which to enjoy a cup of coffee and the morning paper.

Owners will enjoy a formal dining room, formal living room with soaring ceilings, and a comfortable family room with lots of natural light from the double doors opening to the full porch balcony. A freshly renovated full bathroom also accompanies the first floor of the owners suite. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom, large spa-like bathroom, and an enormous walk-in closet designed like a personal dressing room.

This rare opportunity to own a successful Bed and Breakfast business in Charleston's coveted Ansonborogh historic neighborhoods is not to be missed. Easily recognized, the ways to generate higher income are endless. The Coastal Suite could consist of another finished bedroom to sleep additional guests. This room is currently being used for storage, but there is plenty of storage space throughout the property. The Mary Scott suite could also become a two to four bedroom suite. The second optional bedroom is already in place but is currently being used as a formal living room for the owner's' quarters. There are two dormer rooms on the third floor of this suite currently being used for storage. Adding just two more bedrooms total to the property would be a fantastic way to accommodate more guests ultimately increasing revenue.

This could potentially be another option for increasing revenue. These smoke free and pet free guest suites include room for ten spacious on-site off-street parking spaces.
