What a wonderful surprise awaited us at Abingdon Manor. We spent the night on our way back home from the winter in Florida. We arrived to a warm welcome from Michael the owner and host who gave us a tour and quick history of the beautiful Inn and gardens. We were offered refreshments and invited to make ourselves comfortable on the lovely verandah. I believe there are 7 rooms each of them beautiful and well appointed. we took a sneak peak into the others we were the first guests of the day.
Dinner was at 7.30 and wow, a seven course feast. As you have read Patty, Michael's wife is a chef, and she did not disappoint us,each course better than the one before. I wished we could have spent a few days. Breakfast the next morning was another treat.
We hope to visit again, it is a perfect location, Latta SC is just a few minutes off "I 95". Definitely worth a stop.
Patty also has a cooking school which is very tempting, we might just try to fit that in somehow. This Inn was the highlight of our leisurely 4 day trip back north and the best meal all winter.
Thanks Michael and Patty, I hope to see you again.
