If you're passing through Union or are in the area, I would recommend this B&B. Interesting history, beautiful building, rooms are great and some unexpected surprises. Breakfast was also really nice. Overall, I had a really enjoyable stay.

My husband and I spent a week at the Nicholson Mansion. It is without a doubt one of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever booked. We went to the SC upcountry to consider this area for future relocation, Even though the mansion is somewhat isolated, it is well worth the extra driving. Lynne and Patrick warmly welcomed us....

My husband and I enjoy our visit at this elegant home so much that I decided to write a book about the home and its history. The owners are wonderful friendly people. Very relaxing and fit for a queen and king. Beautiful decor, excellent food and the service was perfect. You will enjoy your stay and be back many times....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nicholson Mansion. Our hosts were very friendly and informative about the house and they allowed us to wander around and see the grounds and all their pets--including a serval! The Mansion has been very tastefully remodeled and even includes some of the original pieces and decor that the owners were able to find...

We traveled to Union, SC as a part of our survey of Southern American Revolution Battlefields, and found this gem of an Inn in Union SC. Our suite was huge and beautifully appointed, with a Florida-type sitting room and a luxurious bath with all the amenities. The grounds were expansive and beautifully maintained, and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the...

We were the only guests when we stayed at Nicholson and had the Brandon Suite. We arrived after a long day of driving and were immediately greeted by Tristan, who is one of the most friendly dogs I've ever met. While Lynn gave the tour, he led the way through the house, occasionally bounding back to make sure we're keeping...

A spur of the moment motorcycle trip through the Olde English district of South Carolina was made unforgettable by my surprising stay at the Nicholson Mansion. Not only was I a "biker", but it was off-season, mid-week, no reservation, and apparently the ONLY guest requesting a room for the night. It would have been very understandable for the owners to...

Wow! This B&B deserves more than a 5 star rating. You are always greeted by the menagerie of animals (especially Tristan). The mansion is spacious, inviting, super clean, large rooms, and so comfortable. The innkeeper, Lynn and Patrick are the most pleasant of hosts, always inviting you into conversation over breakfast or an evening glass of wine. The mansion diplays...

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The mansion has plenty of room to make yourself comfortable. The inside is full of antiques and is beautifully decorated. The grounds outside are private and have room for a good walk. The hosts were quite hospitable. We enjoyed all our meals and the wine and cheese. If you want to get away and...

“The Brandon Suite was a great room. Spacious with a lovely private sitting room that is great in the morning sun. Though in a place this nice, I'm not sure there's a bad room in the house.”
