We returned to the Columns March 7th for our Anniversary mini getaway, As always Michael was such a great host & a pleasure to be around. The room was great and the hospitality was fantastic. We really enjoyed our time and plan to return again next year, We are also hoping to make a few trips back this year. Thanks... More

We were road weary travellers and found a little slice of heaven. Found the Columns on the web and called. I do not have many experiences with B&B's but it looked so nice. we arrived and were welcomed and treated like family. Our accomodations were 5 star, complete with sumptuous bedding and beautiful antiques. We were greeted with wine and... More

The furnishings take your breath away the moment you enter the foyer. Beautiful twin parlors on each side, full of unique gorgeous furniture. Our room was beautifully furnished and spacious with a private bath (loved the claw foot tub). The king size bed was dreamy. The dining room was very pretty, and the gourmet breakfast was tasty and filling. Michael... More

We always look forward to staying at the Columns and try to arrange our trips so we can enjoy this wonderful atmosphere and host (Michael). The Columns is the only place that we feel as comfortable as home, and have the pleasure of being with Michael and enjoying his fantastic breakfast. If you enjoy B & B's, the Columns should... More

Never would you expect a combination of sincere warmth and artistry to exist in an Innkeeper. Never would you think that if you arrive in the small town of Dillon, S.C. that the Innkeeper will fetch your dinner from a restaurant while you enjoy his gift of a fine wine. Never would you expect that your sensibilities would be titillated... More

We’d like to add our voices to the chorus of praise singers who have been lucky enough to stay at The Columns B&B. We were encouraged to book a room there by the glowing reviews we read, and found to our delight that all the 5-star ratings were richly deserved. This property is truly a gem, and its owner even...

I can't say enough about the wonderful experience my husband and I had at this beautifully appointed southern inn. Michael truly made our stop on the way to Disney a memorably one. He went above and beyond. It felt like our home away from home. Breakfast is not to be missed!

We stayed at The Columns at the beginning of a 3 week holiday and it set the bar very high, it was just a shame that we only had one night there as we absolutely loved everything about our short stay. Michael is the perfect host and we felt like we had known him for years by the time the... More

Staying at this beautiful home with such a wonderful host was a treat we will always remember. Michael truly achieves excellence in all aspects and he made us feel like a member of his family. He encouraged us to use his fine things which immediately put us at ease. Michael is also an excellent cook and our breakfast was delicious.... More

My husband and I traveled to Dillon a few weeks ago to meet our newest grandchild. We stayed with Michael and could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. We were welcomed as if we were invited guests, shown all around and given a little history of his home. He is well versed on antiques and put all his... More
