My work brought me to Marion, SC; therefore I booked a room at The Grove. Upon arriving I could not get over how huge the house was, beautiful from the outside. As I walked through the entrance I was greeted by the daughter of the owners who were overseas at the time. She showed me to my room and it... More

When we were to go to Nichols, SC for a friend's surprise party, we learned there were no hotels nearby, the closest hotel was about 12 miles away, but full; and nothing for many more. My wife found this gem. We stayed 2 nights and wish it were more. The hosts, Denley and Ann are the most wonderful couple who... More

We had an amazing stay at The Grove. The house is truly amazing and the tour by Denley was very informative. You can tell he truly loves relating the history. Ann and Denley both make you feel at home. Would recommend anyone in the area come and enjoy.

I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway for his birthday and we enjoyed two nights at the Grove. The rooms were all lovely, with such a fine attention to every detail in every crevice of this home. I wanted a slow paced retreat for us, and that is exactly what we got. Every chair I sat in was so... More

Stayed one night on the way to Charleston, SC area. Hosts Denley and Ann were engaging and very pleasant, as well as making sure our stay went well. The B&B itself is a large Victorian home passed through 4 generations, and still has some of the original 18th century furnishings. A walk though the home with Denley or Ann is... More

I can't think of anything that needs to be improved at the Grove Inn. Everthing was just great, the room, breakfast & the owners are especially gracious. This will be our stop on the way up or down to Florida in the coming years.

This is the best B&B experience we have had. Denley and Ann are great and the house is truly elegant. Denley and Ann have put a lot into restoring and updating this historic home. It really shows.
