“Step back in time”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

I waited for two years to visit this place. I was not disappointed by anything. The drive down Mansfield Rd to the plantation entrance was a transformation into a time past. Driving through the old slave village sparked imagination of how life was during the rice production days. We stayed in the Simons room in the old kitchen building and really enjoyed the seclusion, the peace and quiet, and the relaxation of our entire time there. The breakfasts that were prepared by the innkeeper, Katherine, were superb. I found myself arriving early, hanging out, sipping coffee, anticipating what we were having. The step back in time while roaming the property, strolling through the cabins where the slaves once lived, sitting on a bench pew in the old village chapel was overwhelming as I imagined the necessity of knowing God under those conditions. I was extremely humbled by the whole experience and just sat there quietly, respecting the effort that had to have been made in those days. I would highly recommend taking a few days to spend there to simply enjoy quiet at its best. It is a picture perfect solution to serenity and escape from everything life forces on you today. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we are planning another trip there one day.

From the moment you enter the oak covered driveway, you know you have arrived at a special place. The breakfast was delicious and added to the low country plantation environment. If you love nature, there are many opportunities to explore and observe wildlife, particularly birds. The accommodations are comfortable and pleasantly decorated. This is a very special place and should be at the top of ones list if in the Georgetown area.

My mother and I enjoyed 2 nights at Mansfield Plantation this past April. We felt enveloped by the beauty of the place: live oaks hanging with Spanish moss, azaleas in bloom, a view of the old rice paddy from our window and of course, an opportunity to stay at a real antebellum plantation. The breakfasts were generous and delicious, but what makes Mansfield authentic is hospitality of Kathryn. thanks for such a wonderful visit!

We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary with a three night stay in this exclusive B&B. The breakfasts served on fine china were excellent, but this place is far more than a B&B. All 9 rooms have private entrances and have a microwave, fridge, and coffee pot, so we were able to enjoy some lunches and dinners at the plantation rather than driving into town. It was really hard leaving this beautiful place because it offers so many opportunities to explore the grounds and get back to nature. This was absolutely the quietest, most tranquill place we have ever stayed. Kathryn, the innkeeper, was really interested in making our stay a very pleasant experience. We're planning to return early next year to see the wintering waterfowl.

Room Tip: Over half the rooms are almost ground level--just a few steps. This is a real plus for older folks...

We stayed here a few years ago and it still conjures good memories. The food was delicious, the environment relaxing, and there was so much to explore. I'm sure we will return. The customer service was also top notch and this plantation is riddled with photo opportunities.

When we arrived it felt like we were driving through the fog in time... it was cold and the trees had almost no foliage, we arrived kind of late so it had a little bit of a scary feeling. I had no idea what we were getting into. We saw the little slave cabins (some nicer than others) and I started to doubt our decision... when we arrived at the main house we were greeted by Kathryn, she was very nice, explained to us the details of our stay and showed us our room, the room was really pretty, a little bit in the small side (specially for parent and children) but it was in very good condition. The next day we had great breakfast, there was more people than seats in the table but Kathryn was quick to find us accommodation, the food was fantastic (these breakfast were the best of the whole trip) the atmosphere was great and cozy. After breakfast we went to visit the amazing plantation, I was very sad to see all that land and no use at all... I wish there was a way to make the plantation produce something, I heard they are trying some crops but no sure how much of that is real... I didn't see much going on. The place is beautiful but I will recommend to go when is no so cold, Im sure you can see a greener landscape and plenty of flowers. My kids enjoyed fishing, riding bikes (provided by them), we did gorgeous pictures too. There is not much more in Georgetown so I wouldn't plan more than two or three days in the area.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. Kathryn, the Innkeeper was a true joy to talk with and had a lot of information to share. Oh, she makes a fine breakfast too!
We found our room to be very nice. The bed was comfortable and the paintings added a nice touch.
The site provides opportunities for a quiet walk and various things to photograph.
We will definitely plan on staying here again.
