“Beautiful setting. Great innkeepers”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We had a lovely stay at this magnificent inn. We are from Chester originally and returned for a reunion. The innkeepers could not have been more accommodating and helpful. The room was beautiful and well appointed. We had the best and most hearty breakfast we have ever had at a b&b. I would rate this as a great experience.

My husband and I received a two night stay at the beautiful Inn on York Street as a gift from our daughter and son in law. Mark and Sandy are two of the best hosts we have had the pleasure of meeting. The Inn is absolutely beautiful, the room are extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are very good also. I just wished my husband and I played golf so we would have an excuse to visit again soon. We would highly recommend this Inn to anyone wanting to get away for a quiet couple of days. There are things to do besides play golf if you just look and wander the back roads.

My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend getaway to the beautiful Inn on York Street in Chester, South Carolina. The gorgeous plantation-style home is over 115 years old and is impeccably decorated with furniture matching the period. It is spacious, clean and inviting. There is a large swimming pool, which is open during the summer season. There are lots of places to sit and relax with a good book and your favorite beverage.

For light sleepers, you may want to bring some ear plugs as there is a railroad track about a block or so from the Inn. Trains do pass several times during the night.

As nice as the home is, however, it cannot compare to the graciousness and friendliness of Mark and Sandy, the owners and hosts. They are very attentive, yet not overbearing. We really enjoyed spending a few hours on Friday evening with Mark, sharing stories and travel experiences.

The town of Chester has some beautiful old plantation style homes. The downtown main street, however, is devoid of many shops or establishments, with over 1/2 of the stores vacant. That is a shame, as the buildings are quite attractive and it has such promise.

There are numerous sight-seeing opportunities in the vicinity, including several historical sites. We visited Brattonsville, a preserved area that was the site of an American Revolution battle and was used to film the movie The Patriot. Charlotte is just over 30 minutes away, and there is a state park with some nice hiking a short drive from the inn.

Note that the town has a few small restaurants, but nothing fancy or gourmet. The Summit has good food at very good prices, but the atmosphere is more relaxed and homey. If you want a really good meal with a more upscale setting, you will have to drive about 30 minutes or so to Rock Hill or Charlotte.

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the Ernest Hemmingway suite, but the other rooms also looked very nice.

A delightful getaway is in store for you if you're deciding whether to stay with Sandie and Mark. From the regal lions on the front steps greeting guests, to the elegant furnishings in all of the public rooms, to a most comfortable bed in the Hemingway room, a nice sized bathroom,with tub/shower combo, this is a world away from the real world.Our room's TV did include a DVD player(a large selection of movies,etc. in the upstairs hallway to borrow), and we watched a movie one night, as it was raining. Our breakfast at 9 AM sharp was especially good the first day. Sandie had a handicap, as I can't eat eggs or chicken, so we had a croissant with bacon and cheese day 1, along with grapefruit, huge blueberry muffins, toast and jam, and my wife enjoyed her AM coffee. On day 2 we had BLT's for breakfast, and a chocolate pond cake and apricots(as I remember) again with her AM coffee. We also had fresh orange juice both days. Sandie is a interesting hostess,and loves to tell of the house' history,and how they landed in Chester,SC from Manchester ,England.As has been mentioned in other reviews, there are numerous trains running day & night through Chester. We always have our "white noise" machine to help drown-out excess noise distractions, but it was only partially successful with the multiple engines passing through. We plan to go back to the zoo in Columbia in the future, and would stay here, and make the day trip for the zoo. Looking forward to a return,and you will too,after you've had a taste of their hospitality and food. Highly recommended.

This is a very special find in the B&B world. It is an old house that has had an interesting history. It is kept in perfect shape and is furnished in luxurious and dramatic style, with large, comfortable antique couches and tables and chairs in the public areas and the same style of beds and furniture in the room. We stayed in the Noel Coward room. Pillows, bed and linens were top quality and very comfortable. The room has four large, floor to ceiling windows, as do most of the rooms. I was able to peek into the other three rooms and all looked equally wonderful. Not all rooms have a bathtub, so if that is important to you, ask upon making the reservation. Our room was shower only and the shower worked well and is up-to-date and large. There is an excellent piano in the living room, kept in tune, and this was a draw for us because my husband plays and hates to be away from the piano for too long. Sandy and Mark are friendly, warm and competent hosts. The coffee was great - a rare treat in this part of the world. Be aware that there is a train that runs through the town and it can be a bit loud at night. This didn't bother us, but might be a concern for some. This would be true in most parts of the town. Breakfast was simple but good - fruit, eggs, a sausage in a pastry that was delicious, toast. The breakfast table is lovely and conducive to conversation. Breakfast is late - 9am - but if you need something earlier they will accommodate you. We had traveled from Colorado, so 9am was about right for us.

Room Tip: All four rooms are about equal in comfort, size and furnishings. Check website for accurate descrip...

Folks, this is a great B&B. The facility is a wonderfully restored older home in a picturesque setting. Our room was clean, comfortable and inviting. Mark and Sandie are fabulous hosts...always available for help and always in the mood for interesting conversation. The breakfast was delicious, served on time and at the right temperature and it's presentation was amazing. If you are in the Chester area, I don't think you can do better.

I arranged a two night stay at An Inn on York Street as a surprise get away for my husband. We had a wonderful stay. The house is fabulous, the Hemingway room luxurious and filled with all the items necessary for a comfortable stay to include Hermes soap, shampoo and conditioner -- HERMES!!!! :o) Quite the unexpected treat!! Our stay included a three course breakfast that was to die for. Not only was the food superb and the service impeccable but, our conversations with Mark and Sandy were very interesting and enjoyable.

We only made the trip in order to enjoy the B&B so, we weren't interested in the area activities; however; we did enjoy a visit to nearby Brattonsville Historic Site and a day trip to explore the Charlotte, NC area.

Our trip was a truly wonderful experience and we look forward to our next visit!
