Clevedale Historic Inn and Gardens
Ranked #2 of 2 Spartanburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 June 2014

The owner: Pontheolla was attentive without being intrusive. She made sure that we had what we needed but we felt that we still had plenty of privacy. Pontheolla was also very knowledgeable about the area and was able to recommend several restaurants.

The room: We stayed in the Wren Room which had access to the roof top Porch which overlooks some of the gardens. We spent a good deal of time on the porch just relaxing. The marble shower in the bathroom was very luxurious with a rain shower shower head which we enjoyed. Outside of our room was a sideboard with candy and a fridge with water, soda and beer.

The rest of the house was decorated quite nicely with antiques. Access to the Inn was controlled by a keypad on the door so that you could keep your own hours but still feel secure. The grounds were very attractive with several types of gardens. Although the house is in a residential area, it is very private and the neighborhood is very quiet at night

My wife is a vegetarian and I do not eat seafood. Pontheolla handled our dietary needs very well. She also cooked the breakfast to our schedule. We were the only guest at the time and I asked what she does when there are more people. She said that she cooks each breakfast to order, as long as it is not past 11 am. The breakfast are served in the dining room which has several tables with varying numbers of seating arrangements so you could sit by yourself or join some of the other guests We stayed for 4 days and the breakfast were:
1) Fresh fruit cup, garlic grits with seasoned mushrooms, parmesan cheese and basil from the garden (mine also had pancetta) juice and water
2) Eggs benedict with spinach (pancetta) water and juice
3) Blueberry pancakes with pecans (Honey smoked turkey breast) fresh fruit, juice and water
4) Fresh fruit parfait with nuts and whipped cream, and a breakfast sandwich with eggs, asparagus and cheese (pancetta).

There was also a Happy Hour at 5 pm. Because of our schedule we were only able to attend 1 time. The snacks at the Happy Hour included; chocolate covered ginger, mixed nuts with wasabi peas,homemade cheese straws, 2 types of olives and crackers with a homemade black bean hummus. When Pontheolla learned that we were wine beginners (frankly to me, all wine taste like spoiled grape juice) she picked out a wine that was beginner friendly and quite good.

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn and definitely plan to stay there the next time we are in Spartanburg

Room Tip: I would recommend the rooms with the roof top porch access

We stayed at the Clevedale Inn during a recent visit to Spartanburg for a family wedding. The Inn is a beautifully restored, exquisitely decorated homestead. The beds were heavenly and the hospitality was outstanding. Every breakfast was wonderfully delicious. We were so well pampered that it was hard to leave. Definitely will be back for another visit.
