Our stay at Old Academy was enjoyable. The owners are a lovely couple who obviously enjoy meeting travelers and welcoming them to their home. The neighborhood is quiet and the bed was so comfortable. We were asked what time we would like breakfast, which was served to us in the beautiful dining room, surrounded by lovely decor that reminded me of my grandmother's home.

Room tip: All bedrooms are upstairs.

We paid to tour mansions in both Charleston and Savannah.... but our most beautiful experience was at the Old Academy Bed and Breakfast in Walterboro, SC. We had the opportunity to stay with Don and Jean for a week. During that time we were completely blessed by their southern hospitality. The decor in their home was everything you would have imagined in a Southern Mansion from the furniture, pictures, crystal, drapery, wallpaper and more. Don, Jean and Joy made our stay in South Carolina one to remember. Truly wonderful people!

We arrived at dinnertime after a long drive from Florida. We were welcomed by the Sterlings. Wonderful, gracious couple. Our room was their daughters, so nice, clean and lovely linens and the bed was so firm and comfortable. Bathroom was spacious AND well appointed. We sat on the front porch and chatted for hours. Lovely. Breakfast was delicious, home made waffles, juice. fruit, bacon, delicious coffee and eggs. The home was gorgeous and comfortable and the Sterling's were wonderful. We will come again, Jim & Carole Black

Room tip: Susan' s riim had a wonderful, comfortable bed

Well decorated former school turned B&B. We stayed in Susan's room, smallest of the 4 rooms named after their daughters. Excellent firm mattress. One has to use bathroom in the hall, but the other rooms have their own baths. Think we will take a larger room on our next visit. One room has extra bed suitable for family with a child. Don & Jean were delightful hosts. They recommended a very good Italian restaurant in downtown, so we had a great dinner and breakfast.

Was ready to write off staying at B&Bs; tired of Victorians loaded with dusty tchotchke and quirky (not in a good way) owners. This place turned me around. The inn is immaculate, the owners accommodating, with a comfortable bed and spacious room. Jean provided me with a wonderful gluten free breakfast and Don took care of storing our bikes while we stayed. They are lovely people. Other guests came in during the night and we heard hardly a peep. It is so quiet yet close to I-95. So happy we picked this B&B.

Room tip: Our room faced the back, away from street noise. It was very quiet. Great for sleeping.
