What a wonderful experience! We were there celebrating 46 years of marriage.....and there were also 3 sets of newlyweds! As the saying goes "there were no rooms at the Inn"! Kathryn had a full house, serving a sumptuous breakfast each day to about 20 of us. The stuffed French toast was to die for!
Our room, in one of the carriage houses was lovely, comfy bed, a fridge to hold our wines and bubbly.....and leftovers! SCers know how to eat!
The property also has refurbed stables, as well as 6 original slave quarters, one of which has been brought back to originality, and the other ones are slowly being worked on. They also have the only surviving 'rice crib' left in the area. Beautiful grounds on which to meander, or ride one of their bikes around.
One 'heads up': it's a looonnnggg road in off the main entrance. Don't doubt: you WILL get there! We will definitely try them again. A lovely experience. On to "47"!
