Travelers' Choice
Abingdon Manor provides the only luxury accommodations in the Carolinas or Georgia close to interstate 95. The Inn is listed by AAA as a “Classic Country Inn” and had received the prestigious Four Diamond rating for fifteen consecutive years. The property, on the National Register of Historic Places, was built at the beginning of the 20th century as an opulent private home and, while now an Inn, retains the feel of an opulent private residence. A member of Select Registry, Distinguished Inns of North American, Abingdon Manor is ranked among the best Inns in the country. Located in a residential section of the historic district in the charming village of Latta it is just 25 miles north of Florence. The Inn is halfway between New York City and Palm Beach as well as Washington DC and Jacksonville, Florida and it is just 5 miles east of 95. Purchased by Michael and Patty Griffey from Miami, Florida in 1995 to operate as a luxury Inn, extensive renovations, decorating and landscaping have turned this magnificent building into a refined, elegant setting for travelers. The seven guest rooms in the 10,000 square foot building insures privacy, peace and tranquility. The award winning restaurant, The Dining Room at Abingdon Manor, also rated Four Diamonds by AAA, provides fine dining nightly, with full liquor and wine listing. At a fraction of the cost of comparable properties, the Inn offers the discriminating traveler looking for upscale accommodations a particular value.

Five thumbs up for the gem of an inn for all travelers along 95 (and others). This was our first visit and we loved everything about it – a perfect place to stop as we traveled back to New England during this COVID crisis. We were greeted by one of the owners (Michael) as we arrived, taken to a spacious guest room with all the necessities you could ask for and then served the most delicious five course meal (kudos to Patty, chef extraordinaire.) Breakfast was another taste treat. All this while feeling entirely safe and protected from the coronavirus and all the surrounding upheaval as we escaped Florida. Never have we had such an enjoyable evening traveling up and down the 95 corridor or for that matter traveling anywhere. We will be back.

We have stayed at Abington Manor a number of times, because it is a beautiful historic inn with welcoming, accommodating hosts, and food that is beyond compare. This spring, traveling to Massachusetts, after four months in Florida...with coronavirus haunting everyone...we chose to stop at Abington because we trusted Michael and Patty to provide the most meticulously safe refuge we could find along the way. We were not disappointed. A welcoming refuge it was ... clean, careful, and comfortable with an amazing dinner and delightful breakfast served in our room. If I were you, I would go for all the reasons mentioned, but especially to meet the innkeepers and to enjoy the food. Patty is a truly amazing chef.

We stayed at The Abingdon Manor on 4/22/2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic, half-way home on our drive from Florida to Pennsylvania. We were happy the owners kept their beautiful inn open during these hectic times. The entire experience was wonderful from the moment the owner, Michael, greeted us. He’s a true gentleman who made our visit relaxing and pleasurable. The estate was elegantly comfortable inside and out. We were the only guests that evening and stayed in the lovely first-floor “Master”suite. The formal dining room was closed due to government guidelines. However, we felt extra special because the optional full service five-course gourmet dinner was served right in our room. We’re foodies and -- trust us -- our meals were truly excellent. Two entrees were offered, and we chose the filet. The first course was curried chicken almond bites with plum sauce; followed with butternut squash soup; then a fresh mixed greens salad with cranberries, raspberries and Feta; a filet of beef with pomegranate glaze, rosemary roasted potatoes and carrots Vichy; then finished with fabulous strawberry shortcake. All served on beautiful china. There was a nice wine selection. When I asked Mike to recommend a red, he mentioned they recently brought back from France a few cases of Le Petit Rouge de L’Odalet Pays d'Oc. It’s made from Merlot grapes in the Mediterranean Languedoc area, and isn’t for sale in the US. We ordered a bottle and it was perfect. That evening we rested comfortably in the king-size bed, and in the morning had a delicious breakfast again served in our room. (They also offered a convenient take-out breakfast.) Sorry if I’m sounding like we’re the only leisurely tourists in America right now, but we can’t praise this graceful inn and its gracious hosts, Mike and Patty, nearly enough. The entire stay was surreal, being in the midst of a pandemic and yet still able to enjoy the finer things in life during these extraordinarily challenging times. We wish we could have stayed longer to fully enjoy all the inn has to offer, and we hope to return soon. The Abingdon Manor is genuinely a delightful oasis, and we highly recommend it.

Thank you for such a glowing review. We know how difficult these times are and are trying our best to not only make sure our guests are safe and healthy while visiting our Inn but also get a chance to experience a little “normalcy” peace and comfort. We look forward to seeing you again under less stressful conditions so you can fully enjoy the property. Michael

At the height of Covid19 living terror, we found Abingdon Manor to be the epitome of reassurance that CDC guidelines are strictly followed. The elegance of fine dining in our room even made social distancing slightly romantic for these weary travelers. Well-appointed details, quiet, and comfort rejuvenated us for the second leg of our 1500 mile trip home to the Adirondacks.

I was driving back home from NC to Florida during the Corona virus outbreak. First, I immediately felt safer staying in this wonderful Manor. Michael assured me at check-in they had taken all precautions and extra cleaning steps. From there it only got better. I stayed in the Savannah room and it was perfect, beautifully furnished, and the bed was so comfortable. The room had exquisite details down to the small rubber ducky on the shower shelf that made me smile just looking at it. Because others had not checked in I was able to take a peek in all but one room and you would not go wrong in staying in any of them. The entire house was so tastefully done. The meals...OMG! Due to the virus concern, all meals were served in your room..and I DID feel like royalty. The dinner was a 5 course 5 star experience. I paired my meal with their offered 3 glass wine selection..a great add on. Breakfast the next morning was as wonderful an experience. It was a strange time traveling during the virus, and Michael and the staff did a wonderful job, even though it had to be difficult for them, but they made it so very special. I loved it so much, I told them I could just stay there and work for food and a room..alas my husband insisted I come home.
