My husband and I recently visited the Bloomsbury Inn for three nights. Mrs. Katherine was kind enough to welcome us at the door and show us around the house, which is exquisitely decorated with well selected antiques! Dr. Bruce and Mrs. Katherine are fantastic hosts with very polite and warm personalities. Mrs. Katherine is a phenomenal cook, and even makes... More

Can't wait for you to move inside the city limits! The pleasure was all ours -- we love having perfect guests. We trust the transition is going well; we can't wait to have you on the porch for another glass of wine. More

This was a wonderful recommendation for a trip planned to Columbia, SC. We were so glad we stayed at this B & B instead of Columbia. It was an easy drive about 30-40 minutes away. The house was beautifully restored and decorated. Catherine and Bruce were wonderful and friendly hostess/host. The food was scrumptious, from social hour in the evening... More

It was our pleasure to have you here and to meet you. As was this case, when there is a Univ of SC football game, we are the ideal place to stay. The same for the Masters each year and our major steeplechase races. We do want you to come back -- there is so much to enjoy in our... More

If you have never stayed here, put it on your list, just like I did! You won't regret it, I promise! It was much more than I ever dreamed of. This house has so much history inside and is so beautiful. The couple that owns and runs it are jewels. They put their heart and soul into this place and... More

The Inn is absolutely incredible!! It's beautifully decorated and appointed and so comfortable and welcoming. The hosts, Katherine and Bruce, welcomed us as if we were old friends. The afternoon reception was such a nice touch and the breakfast was delicious and elegantly served. We learned the history of the house from Bruce and we got a chance to take... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the Bloomsbury, and I would have loved to stay longer. Bruce and Katherine's home is beautifully restored and meticulously furnished. No detail was missed when it came to a guest's comfort. They are absolutely wonderful hosts and Katherine is an amazing cook! I am looking forward to going back soon!!

Our stay at Bloomsbury Inn was excellent! The food was exceptional. Katherine was kind enough to share her award winning recipes on her blog. They offered a gourmet breakfast southern style and a 5:30 tea and wine hour with hors d'oeuvres. The hosts Katherine and Bruce, were warm, friendly, funny and did everything possible to make us feel completely comfortable.... More

The inn was very easy to locate, and immediately upon seeing it, I knew this was going to be a great experience. The inn was elegantly furnished and decorated, and the wrap around porch with ceiling fans and even a resident cat, Miss Stray, was very relaxing. Our room was quite roomy with every attention to detail. I could imagine... More

My sister and I were welcomed in truly Southern fashion by Bruce and Katherine Brown, starting with a meet and greet the first afternoon. The grand staircase was of course stunning. We stayed in General Chestnut's room - such a well appointed room with every conceivable amenity. The grounds of this beautiful home were manicured and studded with huge oak... More

We loved having you here, and so happy that you two could find respite from the caregiver status you have all the time. It was warm when you were here, you must come back when it cools a little so we can do afternoon social on the porch. Thank you for staying with us. More

We made an impulse stop on our road trip and were welcomed in such a nice way by the innkeepers. The house is grand! Katherine was super positive, made me smile😊. Bruce made my husband's day by talking politics after breakfast. Interesting people 😊
