The Old Academy was originally built and used as Walterboro's first school house. It is now a charming, fully restored Georgian style home which received the William Lowndes Award in 1998 from the Colleton County Historical Society for the preservation of an historic building. Located in Walterboro's historic district and within walking distance to the downtown area and many antique shops. Enjoy an old fashioned fountain coke at the corner drugstore on Main St. Only an hour away from Charleston, Savannah and Hilton Head. Each room has been carefully decorated to reflect warmth and comfort and Jean's award winning gourmet breakfast is sure to delight.

We ended up here unexpectedly and had a wonderful night!

We normally stay in hotels on our drive to Florida and had never stayed at a B&B because of privacy concerns. This entire experience was wonderful. We did book the largest room which also had a very large bath, a king size bed with a great mattress and lovely quality linens that had actually been IRONED!! The house was beautiful and immaculate. Breakfast was DELICIOUS. Best coffee ever, home made pecan rolls ( I am still salivating) and eggs Benedict. What more can I say except the Sterlings were gracious and lovely. Look forward to returning.

So clean! Even the end of the toilet tissue roll was folded in a triangle. Everything was well thought out and items to feel like home. Very peaceful and restful. Loved it! We are celebrating our 50th anniversary and a night in this wonderful B&B was just an awesome addition to our anniversary vacation.

Don and Jean were gracious friendly hosts for our two nights in Walterboro. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. My wife raved about the wonderful sheets. A great place to stay for any occasion in Walterboro, or a good "halfway" stop for those traveling north or south on I-95. They iron their sheets, which really makes them crisp and comfy!
