My husband and I stayed 2 nights in the Azalea Suite. We are frequent B&B guests throughout the country and this inn surpassed anywhere we have ever stayed. Michael, the owner and host, has all the gifts and graces to create the perfect stay. His design and decorating talent crafted the most beautiful inn imaginable, his cooking skills delighted us with culinary delights each morning, and his gift of hospitality made us, and all of the guests around his table, comfortable and entertained. His attention to detail is unsurpassed. From the bottle of wine on arrival, to the power strip provided for electronics that appeared after the first night because he realized we needed it, everything was anticipated and provided for. We truly hope to come this way again.

My wife and I stayed at The Columns B & B Inn on 10/10/13 while on our way from Savannah to Charlottesville, VA. I saw the 5 star reviews and the picture of the inn and I booked it. I expected it to be very good but it was off the charts and thus deserves a 6 star rating. Why so high? It was not only a magnificent property but the owner, Michael, was simply wonderful. He is an interior designer and the decor reflects a very creative use of antiques, color and design. All the rooms were tasteful, yet fun, and well equipped. Did I say he was a joy to talk to? For me he was the best part. He has a wide range of interest and a very open way about him. I came away feeling I made a friend and look forward to my next stop there. I'd like to add that the breakfast was 6 stars too. The fresh fruit was arranged like a sculpture and the eggs benedict was delicious.

I have always held romantic expectations for B&Bs, until now, nothing had come close. This is what "The Columns Bed and Breakfast Inn" and InnKeeper Michael delivered: A Beautifully appointed Inn with Antique furnishings, Decorated tastefully; Every detail of the Property and the Inn was impeccable. The Comfort of the Guests was the foremost consideration of the Innkeeper. Quiet, Restful, Super Comfortable Beds and selection of Pillows. Coffee in the morning available right at our door and Balcony/Porch to enjoy it on. Spectacular and Delicious Breakfast with a Signature Coffee blend, served in the Gorgeous Dining Room. The Inn is Beautiful, yet so comfortable, you feel welcome and at home. I've finally been pampered. Thank you, Michael. Can't wait to return. LOVE.

My husband and I had a wonderful overnight stay at this charming inn. We were on our way home to Virginia from Florida and this inn is exactly half way! We arrived in the early evening and were greeted by Michael on the front porch. He showed us to our room and brought us a beautiful bottle of wine. He gave us a great tip on where to have dinner. We decided to order our meal and have it in our gorgeous room with the bottle of wine. What a relaxing treat that was! We had a great night sleep in the very comfortable bed and woke to a delicious gourmet breakfast. Breakfast was served in the formal dining room. We had a delicious yogurt parfait with blueberries to start, next was eggs benedict with fresh berries and kiwi and the most delicious coffee and orange juice! Michael is quite the chef! We had a great time and we loved the conversation that we had over breakfast! We can't wait to go back. In fact we have already made plans for a return trip in a few months, this time for two nights! Michael is a gracious host and we feel that we have made a new friend! Thank you again Michael, your home is beautiful!

We couldn't have been more pleased with The Columns or the innkeeper, Michael. The home is beautiful and we greatly enjoyed hearing about its history and restoration. Michael takes pride in providing a five-star experience and he is obviously knowledgeable of and attuned to the details that make such a stay - complementary wine upon arrival; beautiful, clean, orderly bedroom and bathroom; delicious breakfast... it was a great experience!

The Columns B&B is truly a find. Innkeeper Michael is gracious and witty. The public rooms and guest rooms are filled with gorgeous antiques. Michael truly believes in guests wanting to make this their home while traveling. The breakfast is superb. And for walkers, the surrounding streets are filled with Dillon's finest homes and provide a wonderful walk. We definitely will make The Columns an annual stay!

What a wonderful treat! This fabulous home has been meticulously, expertly, and lovingly restored.... Loved relaxing on the upstairs porch with a morning cup of coffee, before a divine breakfast. Quiet and comfortable.

Absolutely the best B & B you will find. The elegant service, the gourmet breakfast, the beautiful environment and of course, Michael. He is the most interesting and congenial host, while seeing that every detail is perfect. 'Bravo'

While traveling to meet with family for Christmas, yet wanting to celebrate the actual date of our 50th anniversary (it was the day prior to Christmas Eve), we made reservations at The Columns and could not have done better. It is a beautiful home decorated with gorgeous antiques. Michael is a great innkeeper and host and treated us like family. If you will be going anywhere near Dillon, SC, make it a point to spend the night at The Columns, better yet, several nights.
