This was our third stay at Mansfield plantation. We love its rich history, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts and serene surroundings. Katherine the innkeeper, is a gracious hostess and wonderful cook. We have ridden bikes around the former rice patties, gone inside the old schoolhouse and relaxed in the hammock. The moonrise over the marsh was beautiful! (Bug spray provided!)

A true Southern welcome was extended to us by Kathryn Green, the innkeeper, when we arrived.
She gave us a comprehensive overview of the history of the place and what life would have been like in the days when it was a rice growing plantation.
We stayedin the Rutledge room in the old school house which was where the owner's children were taught.
The scene driving down the long drive passing through the old slave village set either side of the avenue of Live Oaks with Spanish Moss hanging from their branches was much more than we could have imagined such a scene to be. It was captivating.
Looking around the grounds in the evening and following morning we were awestruck at the enormous amount of human labour that went into creating this place from clearing the forest, to laying out the grounds, constructing the buildings and digging the dykes enclosing the rice paddy fields.
Kathryn served breakfast in the dining room of the main house which had all the original furniture and artefacts. We enjoyed the interesting combination of sweet bread pudding with savoury bacon and turkey sausage preceded by a warm pear compote.
This b&b is great value in all senses of the word.

For those wanting the true feel of Lowcountry rice plantations, Mansfield is your spot. I love Live Oaks and Mansfield has some beauties. The view from the house either down the front alley or across the rice fields is breathtaking. Kathryn Green has to be the hardest working Innkeeper in the business. She was weeding the grounds when we arrived, but was even better at delicious cooking and gracious hostessing. Her breakfast was super, and an embarrassment of riches. Her stories are worth the admission price too. The prices are very reasonable, and a steal for the setting, room size, and hospitality. No worries about parking either. We stayed in the Izard room in the former brick kitchen, and it was wonderful, though we had to use the footstool to get up into the big four-poster bed. The rooms are in the outbuildings. Not unusual in the Lowcountry, the house itself is not a huge Greek Revival mansion. It is a gem though, and worth seeing. The plantation retains many of its slave cabins behind the trees lining the drive.....and those are rare. The overall location is very secluded, but just right for a quick drive into old Georgetown. Try the Winyah bay tour while there. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Our Izard room was neat in a vintage way, and was furnished with antiques. Nice hammock and swing in the Live Oaks in front of the room.

The b&b is exceptional in absolutely every way. From Kathryn's (the innkeeper) welcome, knowledge and superb cooking through to the beautifully appointed and decorated rooms to the manicured grounds.
We loved every moment of being at the plantation investigating the grounds, slaves quarters, chapel and cemetery, sitting out in the peaceful surroundings on the many swing seats and hammocks and passing time in our room (the Parker). Kathryn is delightful and an absolute fountain of knowledge about the property and southern life in general as well as being an amazing chef.
There is a typical southern breakfast awaiting you in the morning around the large dining room table where you eat with the other guests, which was really lovely.
The rooms are perfectly air conditioned so even in over 90 degrees of heat our rooms were cool and inviting.
There is a large amount of nature around the grounds at all times including enormous butterflies and dragonflies and crabs in the day time and frogs, bats and lizards at night, much to the delight (once she got used to it!) of our 5 year old. The mosquitoes were a problem for me but Kathryn provided complimentary repellent in every room. It is these extra touches that make the stay even better. We would love to visit again in the autumn to see the changing seasons here. Everyone should experience this place for a trip back in time.

I waited for two years to visit this place. I was not disappointed by anything. The drive down Mansfield Rd to the plantation entrance was a transformation into a time past. Driving through the old slave village sparked imagination of how life was during the rice production days. We stayed in the Simons room in the old kitchen building and really enjoyed the seclusion, the peace and quiet, and the relaxation of our entire time there. The breakfasts that were prepared by the innkeeper, Katherine, were superb. I found myself arriving early, hanging out, sipping coffee, anticipating what we were having. The step back in time while roaming the property, strolling through the cabins where the slaves once lived, sitting on a bench pew in the old village chapel was overwhelming as I imagined the necessity of knowing God under those conditions. I was extremely humbled by the whole experience and just sat there quietly, respecting the effort that had to have been made in those days. I would highly recommend taking a few days to spend there to simply enjoy quiet at its best. It is a picture perfect solution to serenity and escape from everything life forces on you today. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we are planning another trip there one day.
