We stayed with our dogs over the Memorial Day weekend in the Secret Garden cottage. The cottage has 2 bed rooms, full kitchen, living room and sun room. The antiques and décor were charming. The secret garden was a brick walled garden area with a table and chairs sitting area over looking a fountain. We loved it as did our dogs who could explore all the wanted. The Magnolia Plantation is a water themed property with a fountain or pong near each cottage. There is also a large house for guests without animals. The inn keepers, Cindy and Joe and their dog Abby, are very warm and helpful hosts.. Cindy makes a great breakfast.
The property is 4 or 5 blocks from the old town that has some great places to eat. The Hippodrome is also there. We walked to shops and restaurants every day.
We will surely be back to enjoy this friendly inn.
