We echo all the comments made below: this is a country gem. There was not a special touch missing. Janice suggested the Five and Dime restaurant in Rock Hill, and the food was excellent. We didn't realize that we were to revisit a history lesson from the early '60s. A nice bonus. And, lastly, Janice's 'southern' breakfast was a nice treat for these northerners! Thanks for your great hospitality.
Me & my husband stayed here the week we went to marriage counceling at "Caring for the Heart". The atmosphere is very relaxing , and private. Very pleasnt stay !! A most wonderful breakfast each morning ! An absolutely safe place . We deffinately recommend it to all our friends.
What a wonderful bed and breakfast! Mike and Janice were such gracious hosts and FANTASTIC chefs! We have to say this is the BEST bed and breakfast that we have ever stay at. We enjoyed the delectable, inventive breakfasts, we always looked at the menu before turning in and woke to wonderful smells. What a perfectly peaceful place to rest and recharge are bodies, minds and souls. The veranda was absolutely the perfectly serene setting! We will be making many return trips to the Harmony House!

Spent a night with Mike and Janice on the way to visit relatives . This is a great getaway with beautiful grounds and amenities. Breakfast was superb and our hosts made us feel at home . It was a memorable experience that we hope to enjoy again in the future. Tom and Bev, Ormond Beach, Florida
Arrived a bit into the evening on a very rainy night. Were a bit worn from driving and ready to relax. Janice met us at the door and gave us a brief tour asking us when we'd like breakfast. Stayed in 'Joy's Room', windows opening to a rooftop below giving us a wonderful rain-on-the-roof sound to doze off to. Awakened well rested and were served a marvelous breakfast. Got to eat with Mike and Janice and enjoy their down home hospitality. In sum, a very peaceful overnight in a spotlessly clean home with very gracious folks. We'd highly recommend this B & B to you.
This was a terrific place to stay and an excellent value. Rooms are immaculate and the breakfast is spectacular. Janice and Mike went above and beyond in making us comfortable. This is a hidden gem that is worth the 8 minute drive off I-77.....yet a million miles away from everything. Would recommend the Harmony House to everyone.
We really enjoyed our stay at Harmony House. The room was cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We felt ensconced in our room and able to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Harmony House is a very peaceful, beautiful place out in the country with excellent service offered by its owners. The breakfast was delicious and artfully arranged. We hope to stay there again soon!
I got married at Harmony House in 2010, and have spent our 1st and just recently 2nd anniversaries there too. We plan to spend every anniversary there as long as Mike and Janice will have us!!!!! We love this B & B so much, Janice and Mike's hospitality is unbelievable, the rooms are beautiful, the grounds are lovely and peaceful, and the breakfast is absolutely delicious. My husband and I recommend this B & B to everyone!
A most delightful stay. The grounds are complemented with various types of fountains, greens, and flowers. The large wrap-around porch boasts 6 rocking chairs, accommodated outdoor dining, and includes a large hammock for couple-lounging. In addition are the gazebo and several benches located around the home. It's really quite lovely. A pianist, I also thoroughly enjoyed their acoustic spinet piano - not many of them around anymore! Thanks so much!
Sherley and I chose Harmony House because of it's proximity and it's price. We simply wanted a night of peace and quiet in a setting where we could concentrate on enjoying an evening of relaxation in each others company with no distractions. Harmony House was perfect for our purposes. It's "out in the country" feeling yet proximity to nice dining was perfect. Mike and Janice did a wonderful job of welcoming us, familiarizing us with the inn, making us feel comfortable in their home, and then providing a wonderful breakfast on the veranda. The entire experience more than met our expectations and we will definitely return. Thank you Mike and Janice.
My wife and I had to find a house in the Fort Mill area and we had only 5 days to do it. However, staying at Harmony House made what could have been a very stressfull situation actually pleasant; and our time at Harmony House felt as if we were on a relaxing vacation. Mike and Janice are wonderful hosts and I can't say enough about the morning meals. Each breakfast was different and delicious! We will stay at harmony House again. Roger and Danielle
This was our third stay at Harmony House and we'll definitely be back. It's beautiful inside and out -- beautiful decorations and paintings inside, beautiful porch and gardens outside. There's a small collection of DVDs, videos and coffee-table books, novels, and devotional-type books. The rooms, dining room, and porch all feel very comfortable -- clean and pretty, and not intimidating. And it's on a country road that's safe for walking on. The breakfasts were delicious and healthy. Some of the things I enjoyed were the blueberry French toast bake, spiral omelets, banana splits, and asparagus. The house was full with only two other couples, and we all ate breakfast together at one table with Mike and Janice -- a really nice way to start the day.
My wife & I embarked on a 350 mile bicycle ride through S.Carolina with stays at campgrounds, hotels, & bed & breakfasts. We were excited about our stay at Harmony House with the aesthetics appealing to our personalities & to treat ourselves on our third day of travel. While making our way from Blacksburg to York on Hwy 5 we had mechanical issues that prevented us from continuing to ride & needed to be worked on at a bicycle shop. It was a Sun. & it appeared that our adventure was going to come to an end. We called Harmony House to share that it appeared that we were going to have to cancel but to our surprise they offered to come & pick us up! We were a good 30 min out of their way but Mike didn't mind! Being that Mike is a cyclist he definitely had empathy for our situation. We arrive at Harmony House & find ourselves at peace of mind with the opportunity to refresh & rest from miles of cycling. There is an overwhelming atmosphere of serenity & peace that can only come from a place that is in PERFECT HARMONY! We enjoyed staying in Joy's Room that was very well accommodated with accents that were thoughtfully placed & added the touch of feeling special. We enjoyed the balcony, jetted tub (sore legs), & comfortable bed! Breakfast was delicious & was nutritiously sound for providing for the rest of our trip that day. They also went out of their way by taking us into town to the Rock Hill Bicycle Shop in order for us to get work done on the bike. They were the MAIN reason for us to be able to continue our cycling marriage retreat! Their hospitality & selflessness demonstrated their outstanding character & desire to serve their guests way & beyond! For our marriage, it was one of the highlights of our trip that brought physical & spiritual renewal. Thank you Mike & Janice for making it possible to FINISH our adventure through the state! We highly recommend those weary traveling by foot, bicycle, or car to enjoy the refuge they will experience at the Harmony House!
we actually live close by and we saw this place on the internet-we had never been to a bed and breakfast before-we mentioned our anniversary when we called and once we arrived-there was a nice gift on the bed with a balloon that said "happy anniversary" the personal touches mike and janice added were so thoughtful-not to mention the way they glorify God in all they do-that touched us even more-there were movies to watch-plush robes,jaccuzzi tub-popcorn-free sodas just to name a few things-this place will make it hard to ever stay at a hotel again-we will be back in the very near future-they make you feel right at home and the view was just breathtaking-the breakfast was creative and wonderful-we fell in love with this gorgeous place-highly recommend this place to anyone looking to relax and be at peace-my anniversary was definately one i will never forget
Very nice getaway in remote area but close to many major outlets etc. very refreshing stay but I look forward to a little warmer weather to really experience the outdoors. Would really recommed at least a two day stay so you really get the fel of doing nothing the day after you arrive. The atmostsphere was really welcoming and the peace of the God's Holy Spirit could be felt.
Harmony House is an oasis away from a busy world. Shopping and dining are within a few minutes' drive, but Harmony House offers a respite from the busyness of life. Mike and Janice are wonderful hosts and run not only an immaculate inn, but an inn where detail and care for their guests is foremost. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay with them. They are a team, fixing breakfast together for their guests, and then dining with us and other guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending Harmony House to others, nor returning as guests ourselves. Denley and Ann Caughman
Everything was more than I expected except for the breakfast. While it was excellent food prepared and presented in a very appealing way, I was expecting a hearty southern breakfast of eggs, grits, and bacon. This is more a matter of individual taste rather than a reflection on this bed and breakfast, though..
Sharon and Donnie of the Park Avenue Inn mad us feel like family the moment we arrived. They are a lovely couple and make you fell both welcome and special during your stay. If you are looking for a place to stay where you feel like you are staying at a favorite relative's house, then this is the place for you! PS. If you need your pecans shelled, then Donnie can do that too!!!
What a great hideaway. Very comfortable and relaxing. We happened to show up late but other than that, we were treated very nice, like family. Trains were like music in the distance. Directions are a little tough and a roadside sign would help for someone not knowing the area. Midge and Mike Fagan, Little River, SC
We were wonderfully greeted and Had a wonderful evening and met new friends..... THe place was beautiful and perfect...... Enjoyed the delicious breakfast and conversation....... Also enjoyed the folder in the room about rest and relaxation with Bible verses....... Could not have asked for a more perfect time and place......
