The inn does a wonderful job of keeping you immersed in the natural beauty of the adjacent Middleton Place. Two of our room's four walls were floor to ceiling plantation-style shutters, which you could close for privacy at night and then open during the daytime to enjoy the view of the river and forests (be sure to reserve river-view room!). A relaxing, sylvan retreat, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. I highly recommend this inn for anyone who is outdoorsy and who loves nature and history. Just a note - due to the inn's closeness with nature, we did find some bugs in the otherwise clean room. Not a complaint, just wanted to give a heads up to any city-fied people who aren't accustomed to cabins or forests, though the inn is the most regal and pampering "cabin" we've ever stayed in!
The inn is worth the price of the room, though we were able save money using Groupon, and by having three people share one room with a queen bed and a sofa bed.
Definitely plan on at least one day to take in the inn's own offerings, since it is an oasis in itself. We also enjoyed taking advantage of the manager's reception in the evenings at the Lodge, during which you can enjoy wine and cheese while visiting with other guests or simply taking in the view of the Ashley River. I also loved the hammocks and chairs along the river, which made us slow down and just enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
Also, the inn is within walking distance of the historic site and gardens, the equestrian center (the trail ride, praised by National Geographic, is a must), and the restaurant. The roads are deliberately unpaved to keep the experience of nature and history complete, so avoid wearing heels while there. I was able to get away with some sparkly flats to walk to the restaurant. :)
