        Plenty of farms around here, particularly on Johns Island, but I'm not 
aware of any that take in guests. Many have a "U Pick It" season which my kids 
enjoy. Other attractions in the area, namely Middleton Place and Charlestowne 
Landing, have small working farm areas to add to the realism of settler and 
plantation life.
        There are numerous Bed & Breakfast places in Charleston, most in old 
downtown mansions. Almost all have been renovated to some degree and virtually 
all have central heat/AC, otherwise no one would stay in them during the 
summer. And at the prices most charge you expect to be pampered.

I don't think you're going to find any farms or ranches in Charleston 
but I'm sure you'll find plenty of "bed and breakfast" inns.  A "bed and 
breakfast" inn is usually a large house converted to a hotel by the 
owners.  Since it's really just a large house there may only be 3 or 4 
guest rooms.  The room rate typically includes breakfast served family 
style and at a particular time in the morning.

Since bed and breakfast inns are usually in old houses they may or may 
not be air conditioned.  That's something to be mindful of during August 
in Charleston.
