Our family usually stays closer to the beach in Charleston SC. We found Linwood through Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Mostly because we wanted a house this time instead of a condo and the rates for a house on the beach was much more than we wanted to pay. This property is only 10-15 min from Charleston and access to several beaches for our family which included my wife and 2 children ages 6 and 16.
The house itself sits directly behind the main house which is the Bed and Breakfast house. There are actually 4 homes on the property in which they all are together on a corner block. They all are beautiful homes surrounded by beautiful plants, trees, flowers, and the like. The house was fully furnished and was very comfortable and cozy for our family. We went to the local supermarket and stocked the fridge with drinks, sandwich stuff, snacks, etc... Had several meals in Charleston too.
The pool on the premises is very nice and my wife and children loved it. We met Linda upon arrival as she stopped by to say hello. Thats about all of the interaction we had with her except at the pool. My wife wasn't really pleased in the fact that every time she went to the pool with the kids, the owners and their family came out there too, and she felt uncomfortable with that. She felt they were watching her and the kids for some reason. They weren't really conversing at all just kind of patrolling the pool. Dont really know what that was about.
I would highly recommend this property for people with no small children as i don't think it's what the owners really prefer. It's very quiet and location is great if you dont have to be right on the beach. Hope this helps as we are being very honest with our review. Our stay was an entire week beginning on June 5, 2012

Room Tip: This home is very quaint and decorated nicely.

If you want to relax and just BE, this is the place. Beautiful surroundings to stroll or excercise. The views from the top is beautiful especially if you are fit enough to conquere the tower above the treetops. We loved the whole feeling about this place and the service at the hotel and its restaurant was excellent. We would love to go back

My husband and I stayed here for four nights over our anniversary and were overall very happy with our stay. Linda was very accomodating and offered to help us with planning activities in the area and recommending places to eat. She was also so kind as to get up early on our last day to make sure we had coffee to take with us on our 10 hour drive home (she even offered to have fruit set out for us).

The house is a beautiful old historic home that has lovely gardesn all throughout the property. I recommend walking back through the paths to find your own little "spot" - there is a Koi pond we enjoyed watching and there is also a couple hidden swings on the grounds that made us feel completely secluded from the rest of the property. We also greatly enjoyed sitting out by the pool in the afternoons and when the heat got to be too much, we were able to cool off in the pool. The pool is not heated, but with temps in the upper 80's to 90's the water had warmed up nicely.

The only thing we were disappointed in was the breakfast. Having stayed at many B&B's, we're used to having a hot breakfast available. The property provided different breads w/ jams (which were delicious), cereal and fruit along with coffee and tea. So it was enough to start our day, but just not what we had expected.

Overall, we areglad we chose Linwood for anniversary trip!

I had the good fortune to find Linwood and stay there with my mother, my two aunts (between 85 and 91) and a male nurse who was assiting us. The house is lovely, the grounds stunning. The hosts were gracious in offering a second wheelchair In addition to one I had brought from Canada) for getting my aunts around. We stayed for 5 nights.

However there is a very strong born again Christian atmosphere. of course this is absolutely fine since this reflects the beliefs of the owners. However I am gay, and so was the nurse who accompanined us (though not flamboyant or out in any way).. And though we are not a couple and slept in seperate beds in the same room, all five of the party travelling got the very distinct feeling that our hostess was very uncomfortable with us.

On the night of our arrival, the nurse and I decided to go out and get a couple of items we needed, after getting the three older members of the party settled. When we got back at 11:00 p.m. we found the doors locked and no obvious means of entrance available. It turned out the next day that the door simply was binding and our key would have worked if we had forced it. However we found a nearby motel so we would not disturb our obvioiusly sleeping hosts. No apology was offered the next day when our hostess found out our dilemma when we arrived in time for breakfast.

I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who loves gardening, and antiques. I would not recommend it if you are gay as you will make your hosts feel unhappy.

What a great place to stay in the pretty small town of Summerville. Hosts were charming and helpful. Master gardeners, you can tell by the manicured and gorgeous plants! It was a relaxed atmosphere and I enjoyed the breakfast with fresh fruit and bakery fresh bread. Summerville is a fun town to shop and if you need more, you can visit nearby Charleston and Walterboro for antiques or whatever. Try the Italian restaurant in the town square in Summerville. Great place to stay.
