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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. A member of Select Registry, Distinguished Inns of North American, Abingdon Manor is ranked among the best Inns in the country. 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
