“Pride and Prejudice.... according to my wife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Excellent place! It somehow manages to combine country + luxury.... country chic. The room was very comfortable and spacious, loved the sliding wooden door leading into the bathroom. EVen the toilet seat was more comfortable that my own toilet at home.
The food was excellent in the restaurant, the waiters were very thoughful and accommodating. The lodge had a simple but delicious offerings (salads, sandwiches, wines, etc), and the lady who served us there (I think her name was Jolie) was very courteous, professional, and fast!
The tours were great, would highly recommend the Meet the Breeds tour, my wife had a ball with all the animals (petting the goats and the horses made her day).
We missed was the Carriage tour, and maybe that was for the best as of now because July was very hot and probably not the best time for it, but we intend to go back there either in the Fall or Spring and get the Carriage tour. Also we missed the cow milking, only because we didn't know it existed until we were leaving, which we also intend to do on our next trip there. Definitely this is the top dog of B&B in Charleston.
Recommended to the teeth!

The rooms at the Inn are very comfortable and unique. Supper at the restaurant was delicious and the service excellent. The real surprise was access to the Middleton Place plantation. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and the walk through was relaxing and very interesting. We will definitely return for an extended visit!

Room Tip: We liked the room with the woods view and did not see benefit in paying more for the river view. We...

My wife and I recently stayed at the Inn at Middleton Place and found a real gem. We had visited the plantation several years ago, and thought we would treat ourselves to special night at the Inn. We couldn't have been more pleased.
The room overlooked the Ashley River and we watched boats and birds using the river that afternoon. The room was large and included a large walk in shower/tub. The floors and paneling in the room was cypress and was very inviting.
The best part was the warm evening reception of shrimp and cheeses. Also included in this free experience, was several nice wines or beers to choose from. Our hostess was so gracious and accommodating. When we wished to sit a bit longer, she went out of her way to make us 'at home'. Highly recommend this spot for vacationers.

Room Tip: I would definitely pay the little extra for the river views.

We found this southern jewel while searching the internet for a pet-friendly hotel in the Charleston area. While my husband worked (poor thing) in a town nearby, my puppies and I were free to roam paths around the Inn property. When they napped in their crate in the guest room, I was able to enjoy some time pool-side overlooking the Ashley River. With our stay, we have been given free admission to America's oldest landscaped gardens at the Middleton Place National Historic Landmark adjacent to the Inn. The pups will have to sit that tour out. No pets allowed over there.
Beautiful, tranquil setting, comfortable room, friendly staff and fabulous (I mean fabulous) restaurant. Would love to visit again!

Room Tip: Ask for "a room with a view". It is worth it!

Review in a nutshell:
Great stay. Minus one star for the 1+ hour when the power and water went out and it was never mentioned to us by the management - either before for a warning or an apology for the inconvenience afterward. Also I feel the interior was exceptional average. Everything else was lovely.

Long Version:
We decided to stay at the Inn for a 3 day trip to Charleston. It's a very pleasant location about 30-45 minutes from downtown Charleston (depending on traffic). The architecture of the place is very modern and minimal looking - but despite what you might think, it actually works quite well. The Inn is hidden amongst the trees so the modern building doesnt really disrupt what you expect a Southern plantation area to look like. And when you see the place it's actually quite refreshing.

In my opinion the the interior didn't really live up to my expectations. It was more than adequate for our stay but it was not all that inviting or comfortable. I guess I was assuming our room would be a relaxing oasis - but it was just average. Everything done in oak, which may have been cool back in the 80s. I paid a little more for a "river view". I mean, I guess technically we could see the river from our room, but "river view" seems a bit generous. Still, the grounds and views while walking around are beautiful.

The complimentary breakfast is great. Oatmeal, cereal, muffins, coffee, juice and more. With other options available for purchase. My wife ordered cheese grits every morning. I think that was about $3.

The best perk is the free access to Middleton Place - which is normally around $30/person. You can walk over to Middleton on a little path in about 8 minutes. If you stay here you should also plan on seeing Drayton Hall and/or Magnolia Gardens.

Room Tip: The extra money for a "river view" is not worth it.

What a beautiful place to stay. The gardens and wilder areas are amazing and a joy to walk around. Nature and history surrounds you.
The architecture was impressive and modern and the rooms are spacious and peaceful. Certainly a step up from the run of the mill hotels.

We stopped by on our way to Myrtle Beach. It was a very peaceful nature filled visit: The views of the Ashley river were stunning! We enjoyed a wonderful nature walk around the beautiful grounds. The room was rustic and spacious. Bed was a little on the soft side, but the beauty made up for it. We will return.
