My wife and I stayed here over Christmas Eve. We have family in town and this was a great way for us to spend Christmas with them while still having a place to ourselves. Walking into Skelton House is like a blast from the past. You feel as if you have walked right into the early 1900s, however it is...

This is a beautiful, historical home. In addition to our recent stay over Thanksgiving, we stayed in The Skelton House when it was operated by the Skelton family. The new owners, Alan and Michelle, have continued the warm, welcoming tradition of the home. The guest rooms and the entire house are furnished with beautiful antiques. Each room is quaintly named...

My husband and I stayed here for one night because our friend was getting married. The bridal party had rented out the whole house. The bridal luncheon was held in the dinning room and was very charming. The rooms were a good size and we all had our own private bathroom. The owner of the house, Alan, was very nice...

We had a great experience. Breakfast was delicious. Alan and Michelle were great hosts. We look forward to visiting again in the future. And, as a bonus, Clemson beat SC 56-7. We highly recommend staying there.

We came for an anniversary weekend and couldn't have been happier. Exceptional hospitality with an artisan flair. Beautiful Victotian home with every comfort. Our host was a cheerful Brit who puts on a lovely brunch. All set amid an historic Southern town that's finding some modern mojo. We'll be back!

The new owner of The Skelton House is doing a fantastic job. The house is immaculate and the food is delicious. Alan is gracious and accommodating. There is a bit of an English flair to breakfast. The Skelton House is our home away from home when we are in Hartwell.

The owner, Alan, was so gracious and attended to every detail of the stay. The full homemade hot breakfast was delicious. The house wonderfully equipped and well-kept. The Keurig coffee machine in the hallway upstairs was wonderful!
