My Husband and I had stayed in March at the Brookside Inn At Laurens 2 days. What a truly amazing experience. Lori is just wonderful. She has the type of personality where you feel as if you've known her forever after just a brief conversation! The Inn was spotlessly clean and our room was just wonderful. Beautiful fireplace, amazingly comfortable bed, pillows and linen, and the overall decor truly personifies a Country Bed & Breakfast experience. Waking up and hearing the brook after an amazing night's sleep is to be had here. Every morning we awoke to the most amazing smells of fresh cooked breakfast Wonderfully fresh food that embraces the locality it's served in!! Hospitable just doesn't cut it to describe the service and attentiveness that Lori and Dave showed us. Lori is a wealth of information on what there is to do and how to make your visit to the area the best experience it can be. Interesting stories and tidbits on local restaurants and points of interest. There simply isnt a better experience to be had while visiting this beautiful up state. We cannot thank Lori and Dave enough for the wonderful experience we had as their guests. We WILL definitely return!!

Lovely quaint comfortable inn. Dave and Lori were great hosts! Breakfast is delicious! Beautiful property close to everything but away from it all enough that it was a peaceful and quiet escape. Dave and Lori make great recommendations for the local community as far as places to eat, places to visit and even the history of the area and the inn. Love that there is tea available at all times and a small fridge to use for our leftovers and drinks. The Breakfast was great! We truly felt like we were guests at a family's home and were welcomed with open arms. Will definitely be back here! Also, Lori took the time to show us all of the inn, we are looking forward to going back, really nice place!

We stayed in the Sage Room at this bed and breakfast back in March. This was our first time staying at a BnB, and I have to say the hosts, Dave and Lori, exceeded our expectations in hospitality. The made us very comfortable right from the beginning. I can say we enjoyed everything from the "quaint" charm of the old house to the delicious made-to-order breakfast each morning. I can only hope every BnB experience we have is as wonderful as this was. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

My lady and I stayed in the beautifully decorated Sage Room at the Brookside Inn At Laurens. The wine and chocolates were great. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very roomy and very spotless with a rain shower head in the full bath. Breakfast was well prepared, high quality and delicious. Everything about the room and the Inn was first class and as expected. Innkeepers Dave and Lori were very personable and accommodating. Great place for a romantic getaway. I would highly recommend the Brookside Inn At Laurens to my best friends.

My husband and I spent 1 night at the Brookside Inn At Laurens and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Inn is very old and Dave & Lori have been careful to maintain period charm while at the same time providing modern amenities. We stayed in the Lavender Room which has a gas fireplace and a very comfortable king bed - very cozy! The common room was especially warm and inviting with a large gas fireplace . It was a lovely place to sit in the morning with a cup of coffee and a good book. There are many good restaurants in the area and the Inn is within a short drive too most. Lori provided suggestions that would satisfy any appetite. Breakfast was very good, We highly recommend this wonderful inn.
