We stayed in the hay barn on the property, a guest house behind the B&B. Very rustic and comfortable with a lot of cool little touches. It was very easy to set up for the week in the house. Summerville is a great location - close to Charleston and an hour and some to Savannah. The pool and gardens were lovely. The driveway is a little tight with the three guest houses stacked together, so we would end up backing the truck in the curvy drive. There really weren't garbage cans in the house either (except in the upstairs bath), so that was a bit inconvenient. Other than that, it was a lovely place to stay!
