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.
This B&B is a unique one of a kind type location. It starts with a long drive, perhaps a mile and a half down the long drive. You will know you are getting close when you enter a large gate and enter the oak covered portion of the drive. You will see the old slave quarters and then the main house. We stayed in one of the guest houses and enjoyed touring the large grounds and taking in the sites. At one time it was a rice plantation and there is still evidence of that history. The estate was very quite and is in close proximity to Georgetown. We choose to drive to Pawley Island for dinner and it was a pleasant drive. Enjoy your stay and a bit of history!
My husband and I had the pleasure of spending the night at this wonderful plantation. Room was very pretty, the grounds beautiful with grand old oaks. A step back in time . The innkeeper was a treasure ,vey accommodating, knowledgeable of the plantation history. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely recommend this B and B .
