The Hampton House is a two story Colonial Revival built in 1912, has been featured in Southern Living Magazine. The House is surrounded by beautiful gardens live oaks drapped in spanish moss, Camellias, Magnolias and Azaleas are magnificent when in bloom. We are located in the heart of South Carolina's Low Country with easy access to I-95. We offer a wonderful breakfast served in our elegant dinning room or by the pool. Our tennis court is steps from the house, and will be happy to supply balls and rackets. For the Miniaturist and Doll Enthusiast, The Forde Collection is not to be missed, a rare exhibit of 55 Doll Houses, room boxes, toy Kitchens, paper dolls and Antique Dolls all on permanent display.

Cookies waiting for us right next to our room upon arrival! Very cool that they have a mini fridge that you can use to store anything in, but it's also shared if anyone else is staying in the other two rooms, so keep that in mind as far as space goes. If you want your own private, beautiful balcony, the slightly more expensive Camellia Room is the way to go! (I personally wouldn't like that room due to the clawfoot tub with only the handheld shower hose the rinse off with.) Also great is that we needed somewhere to stay with our two dogs at, and they allow them in one of their three rooms for just $25 extra a night. We stayed in the Azalea room (the only one that allows dogs) and is was super quaint! Nice fireplace in the room, spacious windows, bathroom with separate toilet and shower/tub combination. The ground are beautiful with a lovely terrace/back garden, swimming pool (which was not ready yet) ) and a (somewhat beaten down) tennis court. Walking distance to downtown Walterboro. Diane, the owner, also collects old/antique dolls houses and barbies, and gave us a free tour of the room she displays them in before we left. One of the rooms she actually uses as an art studio for her paintings and whatnot, and showed us that as well. Cons: 1) Good, but not Great breakfasts. First morning we got omelets, bacon, yogurt, mini muffins, coffee and orange juice. Second morning we got VERY egg-y French toast, mini muffins, sausage, yogurt, coffee and orange juice. None of it was BAD, just not a large selection or large portions. 2) Minor annoyances to the guest room- what may not be major to some but were somewhat more major to me: No extra toilet paper besides the one on the roll, quite dusty in the room on cabinets, mantles, etc., and it took Forever to get hot water through the sink and shower....like, many, many minutes! I get it's an old house, but still.

I can't begin to describe the eloquence and style that this Bed and Breakfast conveys. All the decor is so lovely and inviting. You would just like to stay forever. Diane and Henry are the most gracious hosts and we felt so welcome. We stayed in The Camellia Room with the claw foot tub and a spacious balcony overlooking the pool. It was fabulous. I just don't know how they arranged for us to see two shooting stars as we gazed at the night sky! This trip had been a short respite from our daily working world and we certainly were able to relax and recharge. We will most definitely return. Thank you both, Diane and Henry. It was such a delight. - Kathy & Scott Hornbaker

This was my 4th stay for eight days at Hampton House during a business trip. It is not only geographically convenient to Charleston and Savannah, it is by far the most relaxing and hospitable B&B I've ever stayed at...and I've stayed at many along the Atlantic side! The plantation is breathtaking and so comfortable...you never want to leave. Diane and Henry are gracious and both are talented in seeing to your needs and in other areas such as arts and crafts. I learned this trip about the lighthouse Henry helped put together some years ago along Long Island, NY when he was a crane operator, and Diane is creating pencil drawings for an upcoming exhibit. It was too cold this trip to use the pool...darn, but as usual, it was another wonderful stay at Hampton House! I always stay in the Camellia Room...love that claw foot tub and the balcony view of live oaks. It just doesn't get any better.

I can not say enough about my stay at the Hampton House.. Diane & Henry are just a wonderful couple, they went beyond to make our stay a pleasant one. They are so hospitable that you can help but love the minute you meet them. They will do whatever is necessary to make your stay be a time you will remember forever. I been to quite a few B&B's but by far this one tops them all. It's the place to be whenever you need a break from it all. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Hampton House. Breakfast soooo good........ We will definitely go back. Diane & Henry, Thank you for making your place a place to call home away from home. Regards Mike & Patti R.

This plantation B&B is simply breathtaking! The hosts are warm, wonderfully accommodating, and delightful to converse with. I have stayed here 2x's, once in 2008 and just recently in August 2010. This time I stayed much longer and enjoyed every minute! I visited Charleston this time (beautiful, but touristy) just 45 min away, and visited the Bonnie Doone Plantation, where scenes from Forrest Gump were filmed. The rooms are gorgeous and clean, breakfasts were more than I could eat and delicious, and the pool was just the answer to cooling off from the August heat. I have stayed at many B&Bs and this one is at the top of my list. Can't wait to go back, and a hearty 'thank-you' to the owners, Diane and Henry!

The house, property and surrounding area is absolutely stunning, but even more importantly, the owners will help you feel like you are in the comfort of your own home. I arrived very late (having travelled 900 miles straight through) and they cooked me dinner. I was an extremely tired puppy and they couldn't have been warmer. Loved sitting out on the deck too, even though it was in the winter and cold. Plantations nearby and beautiful.

Hampton House was delightful as were the host and hostess, Henry and Diane. The food was excellent and the host and hostess were most gracious! The tour of the Doll Museum was a wonderful extra.

Diane & Henry were wonderful hosts, with good recommendations on where to go in Walterboro's downtown area, a short walk from the inn. They were friendly and interesting to talk to, but at the same time gave us "space" & privacy, conscious of not being overbearing. Rooms were nicer than those in most B&B's and were well furnished & decorated, without any of the pawnshop sort of decor found in some inns. Breakfast was generous and delicious: French toast, fresh fruits & bread, yogurt, juice (a carafe-full, not a tiny glass), coffee & tea - a nice variety and more than we could eat. We will definitely go back!
