Beautiful Everything

5 on August 31, 2014

We were passing through nearby Greenville to see a friend and we need a place to stay. This appeared to be the best choice in the area. I’m very glad that we stayed here. The owners are very pleasant and helpful and welcoming. They really seem to enjoy the B&B business. The husband is rightfully proud of his beautiful garden. He gave us a nice tour. The rooms are surprisingly large and modern. Only a couple of ground floor rooms are original to the 19th Century. Most everything has been remodeled so that the whole house looks new, but done in an old style. The amenities are complete and guests’ needs are well-anticipated. The wife cooked us a beautiful large meal for breakfast. We could have eaten in the dining, but it was a great morning and we ate on the lovely back porch. I would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful home.

Southern hospitality

Our hosts served us with true southern hospitality. Immaculate accommodations with gourmet breakfast. Number one on our list of B&Bs with 13 years of our travels to B&Bs.

So much more than we expected

Our first time at a B&B and it was way beyond our expectations. Everything was elegant. Grounds were beautiful and relaxing. Hosts were friendly and engaging but not bothersome. Food was fabulous. Had her write down the recipe for the french toast casserole before we left as this will be our Christmas breakfast this year!

A Peaceful and Luxurius Rest

The Shelton's hospitality was matched only by the beauty and quiet atmoshphere of the Garden House B&B. My wife and I have 3 teenage boys and needed a brief "Couple" getaway. The location, beauty and amenities make for a fantastic value. The breakfasts were magnificent and the portions large! My wife and I cannot wait to go back. Curt & Melissa S. Taylors, SC

All stars in every category! Congenial hosts, fellow guests -- the epitome of gracious, southern hospitality. Beautiful house, with porches, veranda, and series of gardens. And the food -- oh, my -- perfection.

Wonderful Inn, gracious innkeepers made you feel at home

An enjoyable stay made more enjoyable

The purpose of our short vacation was to explore the Upcountry of South Carolina, specifically Greenville with its revitalized Central Business District. We stayed at the Garden House in Simpsonville, a short drive down the Interstate from Greenville. The Garden House lives up to our expectations. The room we stayed in was clean, comfortable, spacious, attractive, and private. The breakfasts were different each day (we stayed for four nights) as well as delicious and filling. We didn't "run out of gas" in the middle of the day which allowed us to further explore Greenville and surrounding communities. The yard is a one of a kind beauty, meticulously cared for by Roy. While our stay was enhanced by the facilities it was made even more so by Frances and Roy. They are gracious hosts and most interesting conversationalists. We won't hesitate to schedule another stay.

what a place to stay ......

... when not expecting much after having stayed at some many hotels before and than you step into this wondrful place! Never thought that business trips could become that nice ... well at least as far as accomodation is concerned .... and not just the room itself ... it's the overall atmosphere / the "feel at home & getting spoiled" feeling starting from the place itself (house, rooms, garden etc) and definitely not stopping with Frances & Roy's warm welcome & magnificent way of looking after you (that includes a breathtaking breakfast every morning) .... unfortunately I was pretty busy on that trip so I could not spend enough time at teh Gardenhouse .... yet enxt time I will ......

Beautiful, delicious, gracious, economical.

We so enjoyed our host's hospitality, our lovely, comfy room, awesome food. We frequent B&Bs and this one is a real "stand-out!"
