The King George IV Inn is a 225 year old (circa 1790s) "Charleston Historic House". The House is named the "Peter Freneau House", after a prominent Charleston journalist and co-owner of the Charleston City Gazette. Freneau was also a merchant, shipowner, and Jeffersonian politician. He lived in the house for many years.
Located in the heart of the Historic Shopping and Dining District it is a one minute walk to King Street shopping and restaurants and a five minute walk to the Historic Market. Maps, brochures of historic sights and dining menus are available.
The Inn is a four story Federal style house with three levels of lovely Charleston porches. Guest rooms have decorative fireplaces with 11 foot ceilings, architectural moldings, and 7 foot windows. All rooms have original wide-planked hardwood floors, and a nice combination of antiques and reproductions.
