“Beautiful location room needs updating”
Reviewed 26 October 2012 via mobile

Stayed two nights in the Lancet Room. The mansion and guest houses are very special, the location is unique, worth visiting. The owners have really invested heavily to make this place nice and the have achieved a lot, I can only imagine how much work and money this has required. B&B is children and pet friendly which is great.
A few comments. The Lancet room needs serious updating, the mattress is absolutely lumpy, my back hurts, seriously for a US$ 200 a night B&B this cannot be. The bathroom can easily take a week of serious repair, painting, fixtures changed. Moreover the room is moldy and smells unfortunately. Service is OK but nothing memorable. I was asked to settle the bill as I was having my breakfast.

My husband and i enjoyed our stay in the upper room of the old kitchen. perfect...a view of the water out the bedroom window, breakfast was very yummy and we even managed to use up a few calories on a bike ride along the plantation dikes. ( bikes provided!)
Would recommend to others and would love to return.

My fiancee and I recently celebrated our new engagement with an overnight trip up the coast to Georgetown. We decided on Mansfield Plantation due to the positive reviews and the seeming serenity of the plantation, which was entirely confirmed upon driving up the dirt road to get to the facility.

Kathryn, the innkeeper greeted us even in the rain and showed us the room (the Rutledge Room in the School House), which appeared to be in good order. We had guests next door from Germany and everyone else staying at the plantation was kind and friendly, including at breakfast the next morning. That evening, we ate dinner in downtown Georgetown (10 minutes away) and the next day we went to Brookgreen Gardens (highly recommended).

The quality of the bed was standard, nothing to rave about, but a comfortable night's rest. The bathroom could use a bit of an update, but that can oftentimes be tricky in historic structures. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty with fresh ingredients and good coffee.

The only disappointing aspect of our trip was that some parts of the grounds were not really in the best of shape. We attempted to ride bikes while we there and found them to be haphazardly scattered in the barn near the plantation home. The barn itself appeared really trashed, and it appeared was a staging or trash area for future or ongoing improvements to the estate. The bikes themselves were a bit difficult to work with and needed to be cleaned and maintained better.

The plantation itself is a labor of love and work continues to occur to make repairs and improvements. Nowhere was this more evident in the slave cabins, in which some of them were repaired and some were perhaps beyond repair. Beyond the rough appearances of some parts of the estate, this was a really great place to stay, and one where we would not hesitate to stay again.

My husband was skeptical as we drove down the dirt road for over a mile....but this place was magical! So beautiful and peaceful and interesting. The manager was warm and welcoming. The fire pit was amazing. The room was comfortable and charming. The breakfast was fabulous. We will be back. I can't wait!

Room Tip: They all had so much charm!

For a nature or history lover this place is absolutely amazing. The grounds keeper was very friendly and cooks a great full breakfast. I skipped lunch the whole weekend. The rooms are retro fitted into the original structures on the plantation. I choose the upstairs room as I liked the view over over the old rice fields. Although if you have hard time going up steps stay with the downstairs rooms. The upper rooms are up narrow old masonry stairs. Each room has it's own entrance so you can come a go without disturbing others. Most of the time my wife and I stayed on the plantation itself just enjoying the peace, watching the birds swinging under old growth oak trees with Spanish Moss handing down. Breakfast is in the main house and takes you back a couple hundred years in time as you eat at main dinning room each morning. I'm already planning for a return trip in the fall of the year. One side of me hates to write this review as I think they could easily charge much much more the rooms. Head a tails above any location I've stayed before and a great value to boot. Can't wait to return again.

Room Tip: Room prices are more or less by size. The cheaper rooms (one I stayed in) are a bit smaller but plen...

My wife and I took a two-week road trip through the Southeast the last half of May, 2012. After several days of driving, hiking, and touring, Mansfield Plantation made a wonderful oasis for a much needed breather. The drive onto the plantation took us through a South Carolina Low Country forest which helped separate us from the busy world we had just left, and the tunnel of oaks leading onto the plantation grounds really set the theme. Beautiful! Kathryn Green, the innkeeper, was there to give us a very gracious greeting when we drove in, showing us to our room in the old plantation Kitchen, explaining everything to us, and assuring herself that all our needs were met and questions answered. The Kitchen room was beautifully furnished, the bed very comfortable, and the bathroom and shower quite adequate. The air conditioning worked well, and was not loud. The room was immaculately clean, as were the main house and grounds. Breakfast was not overly large, but was well prepared and quite yummy. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous, and several small dirt paths made for excellent walking along the water, or into the forest. The day had been hot (lower 90's) and humid, but the breeze from off the water made the evening quite comfortable. There were bugs (especially mosquitoes) but Kathryn does a good job of ensuring that insect repellent is readily available, and this worked just fine. The cost was an excellent value! I really can't think of anything negative to say about this experience; it was a highlight of a very, very pleasant trip. We plan to return next year. Thank you Kathryn!

Everything from the drive in through the large oak trees covered in Spanish moss to the actual inn itself is breathtakingly beautiful. It is so quiet and peaceful and truly allows you to step outside of your busy life and simply relax. Georgetown is just a short ten minute drive away and has cute shops and several restaurants. This B&B is amazing and Kathyrn made an incredible breakfast.
