This place is truly AMAZING!!! When you drive through the 1st set of gates, you are immediately hypnotized by those gorgeous rows of huge “bearded” live oaks. Those photographs that you have seen and admired in various magazines and websites come alive when you are physically there! In retrospect, our 2 nights’ stay was too short for us to absorb and enjoy everything that this plantation/B&B has to offer for the most memorable & exquisite stay in South Carolina. Kathryn, the innkeeper, is very welcoming and helpful. The story we learned about the real friendship between the owner John Parker & Rev. “Ike” Golden is truly touching. You can soak in all the beauty and charm of the South by staying here as a guest, if you are as lucky as I had been to discover the Mansfield Plantation.…
Beautiful grounds, great rooms, friendly people, good service, fantastic breakfasts. Free loaner bikes to ride around the property.Relaxing atmosphere. On the register of historic places. Clean and comfortable beds.
I was taking my wife to Pawley's Island and needed a place to stay before dropping her off and a place to stay after picking her up from a week with her best friends. We found the Mansfield Plantation and stayed there the night of June 5 and 11. Both nights and morning breakfasts were outstanding. Kathryn made us feel at home with her demeanor and southern charm. The rooms were very clean and accommodating and the breakfasts were both outstanding with no repeat items on the menu! We have travelled this country extensively and this is without a doubt, one of the nicest B&B's we've stayed. Our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to explore all the things the Plantation had to offer. That said, we are already planning our next visit!
We only stayed one night - which we quickly realized was a mistake. Should have stayed several. The place is gorgeous, historical, and oh so peaceful Kathryn, the innkeeper, was delightful and scurried around working her tail off to make sure everyone was taken care of. Breakfast was good, rooms were sweet, with antique furnishing. It was out first stay in a Bed & Breakfast, and we were impressed. Would like to return.
Just what we were hoping for in a B&B. Secluded and picturesque. We were able to take several nice walks and even used a couple bikes to travel down the long (2mile) driveway. Bring your binoculars for bird watching.
My husband and I recently spent the night at Mansfield on our way to Charleston. It was a beautiful experience--the setting, tranquility, comfortable room, and especially outstanding hostess, Kathryn. We needed to connect for a 2-hour Zoom call, and she went out of her way to make it convenient for us. Additionally, breakfast was out-of-this-world pancakes with loaded whipped cream and delicious bourbon sauce. We also thoroughly enjoyed dinner in following Kathryn's recommendation. Truly, an oasis of rejuvenation.
Mansfield Plantation is so very beautiful and peaceful. The oaks, the camellias, the water view... Our room was so nice and comfy. The host makes delicious breakfasts served in the lovely main house. My new favorite place.
Eight of us spent a night this month and were very pleased with the accommodations and the breakfast served. The innkeeper, Katheryn was enjoyable to associate with. The property was very unique and peaceful.
We actually only live about 30 miles from here, but heard great things about this privately ownef historic site and B&B and decided to celebrate a birthday weekend here. This is a must do if you decide to stay in Georgetown. It's 2 miles down an unpaved road and adjacent to a historic rice field canal that flows to the Black River. The property has some of the best preserved buildings from the heyday of the Rice Plantation period of the early 19th Century. There in an old main streey with cabins and a chapel used by enslaved people as well as rice production structures. The main plantation house, built in 1816, is where you check in and can relax and have breakfast; all decorated with period furniture and art. The accommodations are in old plantation out-buildings that were converted to guest rooms. All decorated in 19th Century style; the room are very large and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and Kathryn is a phenomenal Inn-Keeper. The grounds (1000 acres) can be explored on foot or using one of their many bicycles. The owners are dedicated to the historical preservation of this property and keeping it from coastal development. The evenings are the quietest i have experienced. A definite "must do" if traveling through this area, especially if you are a student of history and love romantic B&Bs.…
We arrived at the Mansfield Plantation just as Covid 19 restrictions were starting to kick in in South Carolina. Due to Covid 19 all the other guests had cancelled so we had the place to ourselves which was very peaceful. The plantation is lovely, the room was great and the breakfasts that Kathryn prepared were excellent. Downtown Georgetown is a short drive from the plantation and has a good selection of restaurants and shops. Mansfield Plantation is great place to stay if you are in the Georgetown area.
