Bonnie and Wes provide a phenomenal place to stay in the quaint town of Bennettsville SC. As someone who travels a lot, this is a great reprieve from my typical hotel stays both in terms of the accommodations as well as the setting. I feel like I'm one of the family and get treated as such. I've discovered the nice gardens on the property as well as things to do in the area while still having good quality Wi-Fi to do business. Only problem is that my wife doesn't get to come and enjoy this with me as its a great place to get away ... she's very jealous when we Skype and I pan around the rooms to show her how nice it is :-D I would highly recommend the Breeden Inn to fellow business travelers or couples looking for an enjoyable experience. Thanks Bonnie and Wes

We just got back from our getaway to Breeden Inn. It was our first time, but it won't be our last. The warmth of Wes and Bonnie, the elegance of the house, the beautiful gardens and the gorgeous room were all part of a wonderful stay. When we arrived it was pouring rain, but that enabled us to spend a calming afternoon reading on the side verandah. Can't wait til next time!

We are from Florida and we travel alot, where ever we go we always stay in a 4 star hotel. My wife was on a employment tour where they put us up in the Breenden Inn and Breakfast located right on Main Street in Bennettsville, South Carolina. We stayed in the Camelot. This place exceeds any concerns that anyone could ever have. The second morning while here I went to the main house for breakfast where Wesley had served me a very nice breakfast which encluded a plate of mixed fruit followed by scrambled eggs with melted cheese, bacon, sausage and toasted bread with melted cheese also, along with a glass of orange juice and a glass of water. Before I left for breakfast I had started a load of clothes, when I returned from breakfast to my surprise, Maria, an employee of the inn had already cleaned and made my bed, not only had she did that but she also took our clothes from the dryer and folded them and placed them on the bed for me. I was so impressed. Everyone here makes you feel like your family instead of someone just renting a room. So if your looking for real and I mean real southern hospitilty then I urge you to consider here. Wesley and Bonnie would often come out and have coffee with us while they would share history of the town and also some of the homes. Andy and Hema
