I don't understand all the 5 star reviews – this place is a joke.

The "Culinary Museum" consists of 3-4 curios cabinets full of "trinkets" collected by Chef Marti - who was only the chef at Camp David, not the puffed up White House Chef he advertises. His “autographed cookbook” is a pamphlet. We were suppose to get a free copy but didn’t pursue it when we saw the copy in the gift shop. His historic tour is not totally accurate and he is often “politically incorrect” – I cringed at many of his comments.

The rooms were clean but dingy. Our bed had fake rose petals on it, the room was freezing, and bathroom was full of half used Avon toiletries – courtesy of Marti’s wife who sells Avon. There are plenty of Avon brochures available.

The food was so-so. The best thing we ate was a cake made by one of the cooks – and it was from a Duncan Hines mix! We barely put our forks down before Chef Marti began his daily tour of the museum. So much for visiting with the other guests at the breakfast table.

I do think Chef Marti is very passionate about his work and history. He’s a first class B&B owner and museum curator wannabe. Not quite there yet, Marti!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have private baths.

We received this as a gift and as I read the reviews they are all accurate, the good and the bad. I was in the area so I did not have a long drive to get there.Also I knew what Grover had to offer (nothing) so I knew upfront that to do any of the attractions it would mean travel.It is a house not a mansion. Yes, the shower and toliet are like single closets and if your big
I am not sure how you would manage. . Did like the Clinton memorabilia.The cookbook,yes is a pamphlet not a book.but nice. The breakfast was by a Chef, ,she was very friendly I enjoyed talking to her., breakfast was modest.:servings a slice of quiche,grits, fruit,potatoes. Note some of the best grits i have eaten.From the reviews I read thought it would have been elaborate?Yes there is a train that seems to come by ever coulple of hours in the night,if you like trains you will enjoy, if a light sleeper maynot. Met two other couples all had received their stay as gifts also. Overall it was a pleasant get away, Marti and Stormy were likeable. If your looking for excitement, attractions nearby, this is not for you. If you want to feel like your spending the night in your Grandparents house this is it. But you will have to drive to eat out.nothing is walking distance.and no meals except breakfast served. Did have snack in our room on arrival.

Room Tip: noise from road,ask for the room with full size bath.

This was a repeat trip for us, and we were again treated as honored guests here. Great food, great service, eye-popping decor! Central location to day trips to Charlotte or Greenville. The comforts of home nestled within a place that still feels like "an escape." Celebrated a belated anniversary with this trip.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Oceanicus room this time. Very nicely decorated, but of the less expensive upstairs rooms, the Earth room is a bit more of a tranquil and relaxing ambiance, although it does have a smaller bed.

This isn't your typical B&B. Chef Marti and the rest of the crew made us feel right at home. This is a great place for all you history buffs. The food was great! This is a cozy B&B where you can take a break from the busy life. However, is isn't a B&B that has the white glove treatment with extravagant trappings. The Inn of the Patriots is simply a wonderful place to relax and enjoy peace and quiet.

We enjoyed our stay so much at the Inn of the Patriots that we are attempting to get a family reunion together at the property. The Inn (museum) is full of Revolutionary history and Chef Marti makes it come alive with his informative and fun tour. Out back there is a enactment campsite with campfire that can be used. In addition to the good food and comfy room there is a lot to see within 30 minutes of the Inn.

Room Tip: We stayed in the spacious Grover Cleveland room that had a full bathroom, some rooms don't so be sure to check for the room features you want.
