“Southern Civility & Charm Just Off I-95”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

My wife and I stumbled upon a terrific B&B in Latta, SC, about 5 miles off I-95 just south of the North Carolina, South Carolina border. We were looking for a highway stopover on our way from Baltimore to Hilton Head, SC, saw a listing for the Abington Manor in the AAA guide and thought we would try something other than an economy motel on the highway.

The Inn is located in a grand Greek Revival mansion with generous and well planted grounds. The room in which we stayed (one of seven) was large, very well decorated and came with a king bed and working fireplace and oversized bath. The innkeepers were very accommodating, particularly since we made a last minute, one night reservation from the highway about 90 minutes before we arrived.

Dinner is served at 7:30, with cocktails at 7 in the public rooms, and it was superb. We happened to be there Valentines weekend 2013 with a dinner featuring filet and lobster tail. Breakfast was also excellent with lots of local ingredients and food prepared fresh on site. While more expensive than a roadside motel, the price for the room and dinner seemed very reasonable to us based on the quality provided and relative to big city standards.

We would recommend this in for anyway traveling on I-95 in the Carolinas looking for an oasis of civility and southern charm and it also appears to be a very attractive venue for a wedding or other special event. For the traveler, the charm and grace of Abingdon Manor is further enhanced in contrast to the gaudy South of the Border, which lies right on the highway about 10 miles north of Latta is a good way to acquaint you with the location of Abingdon Manor if you are familiar with that portion of I-95

Room Tip: The large king room on the first floor was far enough removed from the public spaces that noise from...

We went to Abingdon Manor for a cooking class weekend that included a two night stay. The property is magnificant and meticulously cared for, with beautiful grounds and lovely period furnishings. Michael and Patty are gracious hosts, friendly and helpful. Their attention to detail is obvious everywhere, from the premium quality linens and toiletries, to chocolate truffles on the nightstand, to subtle jazz music in the parlors and dining room. Menus for both breakfast and dinner are well designed to provide a variety of wonderful tastes and textures in appropriate quantities that left us satisfied, not uncomfortable. Every offering was superbly prepared and served with grace and precision in an informal, but intimate setting. The cooking class was both educational and entertaining, providing the opportunity to both learn and try new techniques and to enjoy the fruits of our efforts at dinner. The Four Diamond rating is well deserved at Abingdon; its quality more than justifies the price.

We stayed at Abingdon Manor on our way home to north Florida from Richmond, Virginia. There are three lovely B&B's in this general vicinity (Dillon, Marion, & Latta), and this was the final one we have visited. We were not disappointed. The 8000 square-foot Greek Revival styled mansion has been meticulously renovated. Three beautiful parlors and a dining room, each of which boasts a handsome archway, flank the large, central hall. Upon arriving, my husband and I enjoyed a nice bottle of wine (separately priced) before the fireplace in one of the parlors while listening to light jazz. Upon settling into our room before bed, we were each served a glass of chilled champagne and a Ferraro Roche chocolate. We slept quite comfortably on a high, four-post bed on a mattress covered with a feather topper and luxurious sheets. Breakfast, which was served in a beautiful sunroom overlooking the landscaped gardens, was simple but delicious. For those who are price-conscious, this inn was more expensive than the inns in Dillon and Marion, both of which also provided wonderful experiences.

We stayed at Abingdon on our way to Savannah. This is a beautiful house that has been restored to its former glory and provides a taste of how the fortunate few lived. The rooms are very generous and the beds very comfortable. The honour bar system is an easy way to start your evening, especially if you have arrived after a long drive. Very comfortable living.

Room Tip: Front rooms are enormous and very comfortable.

For several years we have stopped on the way north or south from Florida to Cape Cod at this absolutely wonderful place. It is only a few miles off Interstate 95, near that "interesting" place South of the Border. There are seven rooms, always comfortable. The CSX railroad goes very close and there are train whistles regularly through the night, but you get used to it. Dinners and breakfasts are fabulous. Don't miss it!.

Driving from Florida to the northeast along Rte 95 is grueling at best, so to find a B&B where the road fades into a distant memory is most welcome. Abington Manor is a most welcome oasis in an asphalt jungle; it's beautiful, welcoming, soothing, embracing. The surroundings take you back to a simpler, quieter time. The rooms are spacious and pampering. The hosts anticipate every need and whim. The dinner (and do decide to dine there!) and breakfasts and pure joy. It may make the next leg of the journey almost pleasant because you know you can return the next time to be pampered again.
