Ann and Denley are wonderful hosts at their beautiful b and b. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed their very warm hospitality, comfortable and beautifully appointed rooms and delicious breakfasts. The house has so much history and they have maintained as much of its original decor. A must stay if you are in the area or traveling through!

You will not find a cleaner, friendlier, more relaxing place than the Grove! Denley and Ann do a fabulous job as innkeepers. This continues to be a favorite retreat spot of ours!

The Caughmans are the perfect B&B hosts and set a perfect mood for your stay from the booking right through your good-bye. They allowed me to fulfill a wish by allowing me to bring my 2 granddaughters to share in my love of the B&B experience. We had the PERFECT room, with 3 single antique beds (2 UNIQUE Bonnet beds) and even the "rollaway" was an antique, iron, COMFORTABLE bed! We recieved attention as if we were the only guests...truly a stay we will all long remember. I have stayed in 41 B&Bs and The Grove is absolutely top 10 material! Sue ... Charleston,SC

It would be difficult to find another B&B that has been so meticulously and lovingly restored to preserve the family history, combined with the gracious and warm hospitality of our host and hostess, Denley and Ann Caughman. We just returned from our second stay at The Grove, this time was with friends celebrating their 50th Anniversary. The candlelit 5 course dinner alongside a crackling fire, fresh flowers, and soft music made us feel like royalty. Not to mention the ambiance of our grand accommodations and the sumptuous breakfast. Ann and Denley, we thank you for going above and beyond to make this celebration so unforgettable. It was hard to leave, and we are already greatly anticipating our next stay.
