My husband and I stayed last Friday night at this beautiful place. Everything was just perfect, the room and the breakfast. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

Room Tip: Remember there are stairs to the 4 rooms on the upper floor but there is a suite downstairs.

If you ever have the choice to stay at the Grove on Harlee, Marion, please, be sure to grab it. History is becoming alive int this beautiful house. The friendly landlords, Anne & Denley, will spoil their guests not only with a delicious breakfast, but also with historical 'nutrition'. And there's a lot of American history in and around the house.
The spacious rooms are nicely decorated with love to detail, and if you ever wanted to be feeling like Scarlett O'Hara or Rhett Butler this will be the perfect place for you.

I cannot wait to return to this beautiful inn. Every detail was perfect. It's within walking distance of Marion's reviving Main Street and several good local establishments. The Revolutionary War re-enactment and events honoring Francis Marion (the town's namesake) are a must for history buffs. The breakfast is fantastic and the grounds boast resident hens and their lovely home, as well.

The Grove was a sweet respite! Beautiful accommodations reminded me of Biltmore! I called it the baby Biltmore since they were both constructed around the same time. We stayed in the Senator's room. Beautiful. Each room even had its own climate control! When you visit, just be aware that the windows in this room are not completely covered and it gets lots of light in the morning. It faces the west side too, so it gets the afternoon sun also. Denley and Ann provided excellent personal service. Breakfast was always delicious. Both Ann and Denley are extremely knowledgeable about the history, both for the house and the region. My husband and I enjoyed the swing in the shade and of course the baby chicks that were hatched while we were there. Attractions in Myrtle Beach were only about an hour away which was great. We had a quiet, beautiful place to retreat away from the hussle and bussle of tourism!

Room Tip: Senator's room faces the West...gets lots of light and afternoon sun.

Our stay at The Grove was during a three day business trip in which my wife accompanied me. The Grove is immaculately restored inside and out. I especially enjoyed the tours provided by Denley, and I appreciate his knowledge and passion for the historical lifestyle and those who preceded him. He cooked several times on the 1940s wood-burning stove and was working in the traditional wood shop. I felt like I was living back in the late 1800s. The food was excellent, and the Sister’s Suite was perfect for us. The visit was a relaxing escape. P&A, AL

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sister's Suite and loved it. We would also like to stay in the Brother's Ro...

We had an absolutely blissful experience when we stayed with Denley & Ann at The Grove. They have restored their AMAZING home so beautifully and accurately. We were shocked at just how large and beautifully appointed EVERY single room was. Each room has its own bathroom and fireplace too. Denley and Ann are amazing hosts and a pleasure to talk to and stay with. I haven't even gotten to the breakfast which was to DIE for with delicious coffee, juice, an amazing fruit bowl, the best muffins we have ever had, stuffed French toast and bacon!! All of that on the best china in an amazing dining room with a roaring fire. It was all that you could wish for in a stay at a bed and breakfast. A+ and we can’t wait to visit again!!

My husband and I stayed there in October 2007 and it was a pure delight. The old home is beautiful and the owners are very charming. The room and bath were lovely and very clean with every amenity available and the three course breakfast was gourmet and delicious, all homemade-we're still thinking about it. We look forward to staying there again!
