We went in the month of December when they had their annual creche display. There were about 60 of them from around the world, both traditional and unique. What an incredible display! The gift shop is great, featuring their famous mushrooms and drizzle.

If you are a spiritual person, particularly Christian though you needn't be catholic, do not pass up a week or weekend retreat here. Amazing price for the stay, amazing opportunities to be completely alone, to immerse yourself in the monastic lifestyle, and/or enjoy amazing gardens-- take your pick. I recommend coming alone, bringing many books, and wearing soft-soled shoes (my... More

My husband and I went to Mepkin Abby after visiting Cypress Gardens in the morning. We got there around 4pm, so we had missed both of the tours for the day but the nice woman in the gift shop explained that the gardens were open until 6 so we should make ourselves at home and that there is a bench...

They do have cabins they let people stay in and join the mocks in daily life, but we didn't stay. Still, it was a great day. I have often said that if you spend a week in Charleston, make a point to do a Cooper River swing to Cypress Gardens, Santee Canal Park, here, and Biggin Church ruins. Get there... More

Should you wish to visit the Church, there are guided tours at 11:30AM (Tuesday -Saturday) and at 3PM (Tuesday- Sunday). Enjoy the gardens at your leisure. The area is beautiful and... More

I found this place online many years ago and told myself I would do a retreat there one day. That day finally came and I spent 7 wonderful days at Mepkin. Not having a Catholic background at all the chapel services were unfamiliar but they did not require you to be there or to participate, so I chose a seat... More

When in the area leave an afternoon to walk and enjoy the gardens and the river. Again leave plenty of time to absorb all the beauty and peace of the Abby. For a treat, purchase free range eggs from the monks and help support a wonderful piece of nature -- Paul.
