BEST South Carolina Bed and Breakfast Spots
Staying at a bed and breakfast is quite relaxing. You’re pampered with personalized touches and the customer service is always better than a chain hotel. Living in Atlanta, I’ve experienced some amazing weekend getaways within driving distance. These are the South Carolina Bed and Breakfast Spots that are worth planning a trip around.
Awesome South Carolina Bed and Breakfast Locations
When we’re traveling with kids, we don’t get the opportunity to stay at a bed and breakfast. It’s definitely catered towards couples and that’s something this mom is OK with. Staying at a B&B is a relaxing escape. I find them to be a quiet oasis where you can recharge and relax. From the beaches to the capitol city, South Carolina is a romantic backdrop.
Carriage House Inn – Aiken, SC
Located in Aiken, South Carolina the Carriage House Inn has so many different types of rooms to offer. The original 1872 building offers historical elegance with spacious rooms and soaking tubs. Some of the rooms in their newer building offers a kitchenette area. When reserving a room in the new building, be sure to ask about the “out of this world” showers. Believe me, they’ll know what you’re talking about.
Guests can enjoy freshly baked cookies every afternoon and breakfast in the gardens. It’s also a beautiful spot for weddings. Every morning we were served our choice of breakfast and it was remarkably delicious home cooking.
RoseMary Inn Bed & Breakfast – North Augusta, SC
With 96% of guests rating this B&B 5 stars on TripAdvisor, it’s a must-do! During my own stay, I felt pampered with details. From the morning newspaper to a gourmet breakfast, they’ve left no detail untouched. The RoseMary Inn was originally built in 1902 and the Victorian era decor still shines. They gave us a full tour upon check-in and each room is truly unique. My room was feminine and pink, while others have masculine touches.
The Governor’s House Inn – Charleston, SC
Located in the heart of downtown Charleston, this inn is within walking distance of the hottest restaurants and boutique shopping. They combine modern touches with historic details. The Governor’s House Inn was built in 1760 on the site of the former Charleston Orange Garden. The elegant staircase and fireplaces are still original to building, but rooms have been updated. Guests are treated to afternoon tea, wine and cheese & evening sherry.
Newberry Manor – Newberry, SC
Newberry is about 25 minutes north of Columbia, SC and offers a quaint small-town feeling with world-class entertainment that tours through the Newberry Opera House. The Newberry Manor is the perfect excuse for a romantic getaway with it’s claw foot tubs and grand interior decor.
Newberry is part of the Lake Murray Country tourist region of South Carolina. The area offers the state’s only national park – Conagree National park – and plenty of ecotourism opportunities for fun.
The Pelican Inn – Pawleys Island, SC
The town of Pawley’s Island is located 70 miles north of Charleston. It’s roughly four miles long and one quarter mile wide. It’s a fairy tale escape where visitors fall in love with the enchanting views. The Pelican Inn is an eight-room beachfront B&B. This South Carolina bed and breakfast was established in 1850 and boasts some of the best sunsets. Afternoon naps on the porch hammocks are highly recommended.
Murrells Inlet Bed and Breakfast – Murrells Inlet, SC
Purchased by new owners within the last four years, the Waterside Retreat offers an oasis in the middle of a quiet fishing village. Guests can experience complete tranquility and relaxation, whether it’s in the spacious guest rooms or by the pool. The rooms look over the inlet, onto the water, and they’re equipped with modern amenities.
The Willcox – Aiken, SC
Technically, this is considered a hotel, but I have so many reasons to add it to my list. It’s such a romantic destination. I’d love to be snowed in, with my Husband, at the Willcox. Most rooms have their own fireplaces and every room has luxurious soaking tubs.
The Willcox was on both Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler magazines’ exclusive lists of the world’s best hotels. When you are ready to retire, your bed will be turned down with a cashmere hot water bottle tucked under the sheets. Does it get any better than that?
