Description: One of the South's most historic homes, the Chesnut Cottage Bed and Breakfast became Columbia's first bed and breakfast when it began receiving guests in 1991 and has been in business continuously since that date. Our five guest rooms provide the warm southern hospitality so notably described by Mary Chesnut in her "Diary from Dixie" as she entertained many of her friends and family here. Among them were President Jefferson Davis and his wife Varina, Custis Lee, son of Robert E. Lee, and John Manning, former governor of South Carolina. Mary Chesnut wrote many pages of her "Diary from Dixie" in the rooms and on the porches of the Cottage.

Renovations have restored the Cottage's 1864 configuration wherever practical. All editions of Mary's diary are on display in the dining room bookcase, including the new edition of her war-time photo album. An English style pub with heart pine paneling has been added in the basement and features a period bottle collection of medicine, lager, soda, bitter, and wine bottles found on the property. We are still looking for the missing pages of her Diary.

Plenty of off-street parking is available along with ample storage facilities. The adjoining property, 1722 Hampton street is also available and could add as many as seven additional rooms to the inn.
