I have just booked a room at The Millhouse Hotel in Charleston for our 20th aniversary March 23. We will be there from March 19 - 25, then we may go down to Savana a couple days.

Just wanting some tips from anyone who has been there. We will definatly be going to Brett's that IK and WOW spoke highly of.

Hate to tell you, but heard that Brett's has changed hands, and no reports on the new owners.

Oh, no!

You should enjoy the Mill House. I believe that is where I stayed with my sister and some friends of hers from Iowa on my first visit to Charleston. Watch out for the drawbridges. I stopped for one because the lights were flashing that the bridge was going up. Two cars behind me didn't stop and plowed into me. (And I didn't stop on a dime either. It took a minute to register what the flashing lights were about and I slowed to a gradual stop.) Their excuse was that Charleston drivers try to beat the bridge going up. I wondered how many people they lose every year at railroad crossings.

Thanks for the heads up about the draw bridges. Sorry to hear of your ordeal.

I have contacted the Conceiar (spelling ?) at the Mill House. He is sending me some menus from restaurants in the area. I will be looking for a nice place to dine on March 23, our 20th aniversary.
