“Great Find”
Reviewed October 28, 2009

We needed a place to stay half-way between Hampton Roads, Va and Brunswick, GA and the Select Registry directed us to the Abingdon Manor in Latta, SC. There is not much to do in Latta except walk around the lovely neighborhood with some beautiful homes and relax after a day on the road.

The Inn itself is beautifully restored and nicely maintained. Our room was very nice, but the bath was small (but we did get the last room in the house when we booked). They serve dinner (which is great since there appears to be no where else to eat in Latta) and although it was a multi-course affair, it was not too heavy and reasonably priced. Breakfast was even better. The owners act as host and chef and are very personable and welcoming. Lots of older folks seem to stop here on there way up and down the coast - but they were all very nice to me and my partner (of course, we are no spring chickens either). The Abingdon Manor has beautiful public spaces, nice rooms, good food and a great location off I-95. It is 100 times better than any standard hotel/motel and I would definitely recommend it.

We stayed here for our wedding night after being married in nearby Dillon. The Inn has two beautiful sitting rooms, and a lovely glass-walled dining room on what was once apparently a side porch.

Our room was the Master, on the main floor, and was absolutely beautiful. The bathroom was very large and had nice fixtures, including an original-to-the-home extra-large clawfoot tub.

We arrived and were greeted by our gracious host, who brought wine to our room. Dinner was served at 7:30 as a prix fixe six-course meal. The food was outstanding, well beyond my expectations for the modest $100 price (for two!). The wine list was short, but was very reasonably-priced, and the wines we had were all very good.

Breakfast was complimentary, and was also of outstanding quality.

If you are in the area, or looking for a stop along I-95, you will not find a better value for the money.

The Abingdon Manor was welcoming, but not cloying, we had drinks under a pecan tree in one of several pocket gardens, enjoyed a fabulous dinner and slept peacefully. Will return.

The Abingdon was spectacular. A beautiful restored home, delightful owners, one of the best restaurants we've ever experienced (and we travel a lot!). We stayed one night while on a long trip along Rt 95. A few miles from the highway but easy to access. It became a highlight of the trip rather than just a convenient stopover. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

My wife and I have stayed in bed and breakfasts from Maine to Florida and this is far and away our favorite. There is not much to be said for the little town of Latta, but it would be impossible to say too much about the Abingdon Manor. It was superb in every respect. Even though it is only two and a half hours from our home in North Carolina, we had heard so much about it that we decided to break our trip from Kiawah Island to spend the night there. It was a wonderful choice and one we hope to repeat soon.

Abingdon Manor far exceeds any savy travelers expectations. My family and friends planned a chick trip to include the Manors cooking class weekend. We had a great time and learned so much.The classes were taylored to our abilities,with a menu we helped select. Every effort was made for our comfort ,we felt like personal house quests. The rooms were beautifully decorated,all with views of the gardens in bloom.The innkeepers Patty and Mike Griffey go above and beyond to make your stay at Abingdon Manor a memorable occasion.

My husband and I visited the Inn for the cooking school. Patty was the best. We felt so relaxed and as if we knew her for a long time. We learned so much. I especially liked the part about the pie crust. I could not believe that something I had a hand in would turn out so flakely. We both hope to return to learn more from Patti. Michael was so gracious and accomidating. He did everything to please. Excellent weekend.

Abingdon Manor provides the only luxury accommodations in the Carolinas or Georgia close to interstate 95. The Inn is listed by AAA as a “Classic Country Inn” and had received the prestigious Four Diamond rating for fifteen consecutive years. The property, on the National Register of Historic Places, was built at the beginning of the 20th century as an opulent private home and, while now an Inn, retains the feel of an opulent private residence.

Located in a residential section of the historic district in the charming village of Latta it is just 25 miles north of Florence. The Inn is halfway between New York City and Palm Beach as well as Washington DC and Jacksonville, Florida and it is just 5 miles east of 95. Purchased by Michael and Patty Griffey from Miami, Florida in 1995 to operate as a luxury Inn, extensive renovations, decorating and landscaping have turned this magnificent building into a refined, elegant setting for travelers. The seven guest rooms in the 10,000 square foot building insures privacy, peace and tranquility. The award winning restaurant, The Dining Room at Abingdon Manor, also rated Four Diamonds by AAA, provides fine dining nightly, with full liquor and wine listing. At a fraction of the cost of comparable properties, the Inn offers the discriminating traveler looking for upscale accommodations a particular value. ... more   less
