Sharing my "next life chapter"....

4.6 on October 10, 2013

In late August I was making a life-changing move from NJ to NC so I wanted to make the trip special as I was sharing it with my youngest daughter who flew up to make the trip with me. This inn was the perfect choice for a stop on the way to my next life chapter. Everything about it was lovely including the staff, the owner, the inn and its grounds and the food. We felt quite welcome and "embraced" during our stay. If you want to feel special, this is the place!


Wonderful Experience at Prospect Hill

4.8 on April 09, 2013

My husband and I loved the historic atmosphere of this inn. It has been an inn since the Civil War and before that was a plantation home. The same family lived here for generations until not too long ago, and their interesting stories and those of former slaves and servants who lived here--are featured in the rooms. The cuisine was so far above superior the five-star rating seems insufficient. All members of the staff were gracious and friendly. The innkeeper himself was not only the same, but was also informative and helpful. We are looking forward to visiting Prospect Hill again.


Still Our Favorite B&B

4.6 on February 24, 2013

My wife and I just spent another wonderful long weekend at Prospect Hill. Sanco Pansy’s Cottage is delightfully secluded, the fireplace burned warm and bright (keep a window open a “hair”), and the breakfasts (delivered to our room!) could have only been a bit better had there been a cozy on the tea pot. We love the dinners served in the main house and the gorgeous (in any season) tranquil countryside. At our request the new owners arranged for us to receive massages in our room and they have already begun to better maintain and improve the property – can’t wait to get back again!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind comments. We also look forward to your return. And as for your suggestion, our teapots have now been cozy-ied!!


The Best B&B or Inn Experience ever!

5 on January 09, 2013

This 1772 restored wheat plantation is the most fascinating place to be entertained. The property is naturally beautiful, the food absolutely delicious, the rooms historically interesting, and the service so gracious. We have stayed here several times in the past and wish to return very soon!


Fantastic

This is an amazingly beautiful property. My husband and I visited in late September and we had a wonderful time. The innkeepers were so welcoming. We felt like part of their family. My husband literally did not want to leave. In addition to the great food, beautiful quarters and gorgeous views. there are many animals including chickens, cats, dogs and horses. This was our favorite B&B on our trip and we are hoping to visit again in 2013!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your kind comments! We do hope you make it back to the plantation this year... our daughters STILL talk about dancing with an officer in full-military dress!
