We stopped overnight en route to Charleston - wished we could have stayed longer! Excellent accomodation with a warm reception. As we were the only guests that night our hosts left us to our own devices in the beautiful house with plentiful supply of hot tea/coffee and cake.
We were booked into the first class sland Room.
The house is set in a wonderful square near to the church. The silence is wonderful. Breakfast the following morning was superb and we had to tear ourselves away.
We can thoroughly recommend this as a place to come to rest. We cannot recommend it enough. Kelly and Jeff Spratt were the perfect hosts.

We were delighted with our accomodations in the Garden Room on a very recent visit. We selected that room as it is dog friendly (check their rules). When traveling with pets you sometimes get substandard accommodations - but that wasn't the case here. We were quite pleased with our room and it's privacy which works well when traveling with a pet. The linens were very fresh and the room was inviting, spacious and very clean.

The main Inn is a lovely Victorian home and your hosts Jeff and Kelly are gracious and welcoming. They offer a nice happy hour at the Inn - and the breakfast of pecan waffles was quite yummy. The Inn is situated on a beautiful quiet circle in town just a quick walk to the waterfront. Don't miss the local seafood restaurant, Mudcat Charlies. The food was delicious (especially the shrimp) and the service very attentive.
