My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights in June. The service from the front desk was great. Appreciated the free wine and snacks every night from 5-7. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, easily the prettiest place we have ever stayed. Take advantage of the free entry to the gardens, that alone is worth the stay. The whole experience went above and beyond my expectations, I would definitely stay here again.
... zum Entspannen, zum cool-down, zentral gelegen für Fahrten zu vielen Attraktionen, Einfach nur auf der Terrasse sitzen und die Umgebung wirken lassen. Zimmer und das ganze Haus sowie der wunderschöne Garten sehr gepflegt. Aufmerksame Gastgeber. Lediglich das Frühstück - obwohl außergewöhnlich frisch und gut - dürfte etwas mehr Abwechslung haben. Ab und zu bzw. gerne hätten wir uns ein Stück Weißbrot etc. gewünscht. Generell gute Qualität des Frühstücks. Man kommt wunderbar mit den anderen Gästen ins Gespräch und kann sich so gut austauschen und Tipps erhalten bzw. weitergeben. Wir würden wieder hier buchen und können das b&b nur empfehlen.
Truely enjoyed our stay at The Inn at Middleton - beautiful room and view. Breakfast was yummy. Great value to stay there when it includes the price of admission to Middleton Plantation. A lovely walk across the river. Did not realize there was a pool and horseback riding. Wished we'd planned another day there. Glennda, Amarillo, TX
The inn, and Middleton Place itself, were one of those unexpected finds that really makes a trip. We were excited to see the inn after running across the website and making reservations. However, we did not expect to have such a wonderful experience overall. Our room was absolutely lovely, with an elegant simplicity that radiated warmth and comfort. We particularly enjoyed the architectural touches that set it apart from any other lodging of our trip. Notice how the curve is echoed in the ceiling in the bathroom, in the glass block window, and the arch under the stairs leading to the upper levels. We had requested a room with a river view and were on the second floor with a magnificent view across the Ashley River and marshes beyond. Upon entering the room we found a very thoughtful gift and card from Abigail Martin, General Manager, as we had indicated our stay was part of our 30th anniversary trip. Thank you Abigail! We met some very nice people, and enjoyed wine and hors d'oeuvres at the reception held in the Lodge Building our first evening there. Breakfast was at the Lake house, a short and pleasant walk from our building. Breakfast was excellent, light and satisfying. The Lake house staff, as everywhere on the property, were polite, helpful, and generally seemed concerned about the experience for their guests. Again, Ms. Martin should be applauded for this. It is a lovely and easy walk through the woods and along the river from the inn to Middleton place. We were anticipating spending a half day or so there. However, we became so engrossed in the history, the beauty, the guided tours, etc. that we ended up spending the whole day. We loved it. In the evening, we walked the lighted path again from the inn to the millpond for a spectacular night view with the moon peaking through the moss in the trees. Overall, our experience at The Inn at Middleton Place was excellent.
My husband just took me for 3 nights & it could not have been any better. Gracious hostess, fantastic accommodations! It could not have been any better, hope we can return sometime. Wonderful breakfast.
Our stay at Middleton Place Inn was a great find. The grounds, room, hospitality, staff, restaurant, tours and flora beauty were terific. We took the carriage tour and the house museum tour. Our time did not permit us to take the walking tour of the gardens but will surly do that if we return to Charleston again. I can't say enough about the quality and sincerity of the staff from the General Manager the staff. When staying at the Inn all the tours etc, are included which makes it a terriric deal. If you're looking for a great place to spend time in Charleston for a day or overnight you won't be disappointed. Bill Burris
I responded to The Inn at Middleton Place, to my core: The simplicity of the furnishings, the beauty of the tranquil setting filling the view from our room's window wall, the pool positioned beside the river and the quiet wooded walk over to the Middleton Plantation grounds. We enjoyed the afternoon wine and/or beer happy hour and the breakfast options were better than average, with fresh breads being my favorite. I couldn't recommend this Inn highly enough.
We had a wonderful dinner with local fish, salad and veggies from the garden. Lovely, comfortable room and package included breakfast, tickets to Middleton Place and gardens - very special and we'll return next summer.
This is my 5TH visit at Flowertown B&B , i come from France and the owner who is French helps to make each of my stay confortable . I enjoy the special touch of fresh flowers from the garden in my room and having the possibility of taking my breakfast outside on the porch looking at the beautiful garden . The room is very confortable , and the price very reasonnable .i certainly recommand this beautiful place .
We made a reservation for only one night. Due to several guests unexpectedly prolonging their stay, we were upgraded to the cottage room at no extra charge. The room was amazing. The gardens around the house are spectacular- the photos on the website do not do them justice. The hostess was very kind and attentive. It was peaceful and relaxing, and I wish we could have spent an extra day (or three). When we make a return trip to Summerville, we'll visit here! Highly recommended!!
Beautiful view of the river. Can walk the gardens as much as you want for free. Floor to ceiling windows were a first for me. Delightful reception in the evening. Breakfast is a very short walk from the room. A pretty walk over to Middleton to go to a gourmet lunch or dinner. We will be returning.
Just back from a surprise 70th birthday celebration with family and friends. Everyone loved the Inn and the many amenities included in the package. This makes a wonderful spot for a group gathering or a private getaway. It is an outstanding value and a beautiful site to visit.
Everything about this inn was a pleasant surprise. It is very monolithic, yet warm and roomy inside. I think a fabulous setting and contrast. If you have kids, they will love the pool-sized bathtub. The breakfast was awesome and the hors d'oveurs (i tried) were great big shrimp cocktail with blue cheese. My only suggestion, not complaint, would be some crackers to go with the blue cheese. Otherwise, we loved everything about the place. It was a refreshing change from the hustle & bustle of downtown Charleston. Being able to access the grounds of Middleton Place was a great plus in that you can see the gardens at the best time of day - morning. Also, if you want one of the nicest low-country horseback rides, this is the place. I give this venue 5 stars for good reason, you just can't beat it.
MIddleton is just a most magnificent place. If your heart needs some peace and fresh air, some wild and photogenic views go here, see all on acres and acres of blissful sights. A writer, a photographer would revel in the scenes and atmosphere here. It is inspirational. Beebe Barksdale-Bruner
My wife and I stayed here on a business trip, but each night were able to get away and relax. The Inn and Middleton itself each have so many things to do and see, each beautiful and unique and each so much fun. The fact that you get into Middleton for free when staying at the Inn is totally worth it in and of itself. But the Inn is so cool in it's architecture and landscape, we could have been happy never leaving. The free breakfast was good, but I did splurge one day and get some warm food too (which is not overpriced). The staff was all super friendly and so accommodating. Just wonderful! We really enjoyed the pool too. We were able to make it one evening. We can't wait to visit again, this time in spring so we can see things in bloom over in the Middleton Gardens.
We had a lovely stay at this Plantation. They gave us a cold deluxe breakfast everyday. The rooms were comfy enough, but the highlight was the view and the surrounding grounds at the plantation which were ours to enjoy during our stay.
Stayed here for 2 nights with my girlfriend. The staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were really cute. The view of the Ashley River was gorgeous. I will definitely come back to this place if I visit Charleston again.
Very unique architecture set in peaceful surroundings. Very relaxing and calm. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Loved sitting out on deck overlooking woods, water, and even alligators and eating breakfast. Great way to start a day. All surroundings are very natural - woods, paths, etc. Sits right on Ashley River. Path to Middleton Place stableyards and gardens is very natural and somewhat lit at night. Middleton Place gardens are pretty; stableyards are very historic and interesting. We even got to milk a cow. Middleton Restaurant is very unique - beautiful views, great service, unique entrees -- but very pricey. There is about a 15 minute drive to Historic Downtown Charleston, but worth the peaceful, serene, atmostphere of the Inn at Middleton Place.
The Inn at Middleton Place really made it a very special time for my daughter's birthday weekend. Everyone at the Inn and the restaurant went out of their way to treat her as a special guest, especially during dinner . This weekend was "the greatest" in her words ! Again thanks for making an 11 year old's birthday one that she will remember. Ira Rivers
had a long weekend with the wife and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay than the Inn at Middleton Place. Nice, quiet, and scenic are the best descriptions that I could use. Will absolutely stay here again.
My family recently stayed at the Inn and it was such a relaxing atmosphere. The staff at the Inn could not have been more friendly and helpful. I would definately stay here again. Our room was considered the River Room which overlooked the Ashley River. There was nothing to complain about. Thom & Gina
Bed and Breakfasts are all about unique experiences... and this certainly provides that. Decor, fabulous garden, European flair, magnificent house, interesting hosts, and good breakfast... at very reasonable rates. Unbeatable!
This inn is part of an old plantation rich with history. The rooms are very "wright" and part of a conference center. A short walk takes yo to the plantation with its beautiful gardens and absolutely wonderful restaurant. What a great place to experience history!
My husband and I spent a romantic weekend in December at Middleton Inn in Charleston, SC. Upon arrival we were greeted by live oak tree's so massive and beatiful you would swear you saw Scarlett O'hara on the lawn in front of Twelve Oaks. Driving back into the property are the Middleton Stables where my husband and I were so fortunate to have gone on an hour long trail ride with our guide David. I would definatly recommend this service during your stay. Not only was our guide very informative we were able to enjoy lots of breathtaking scenery that we otherwise might have missd on foot. The horses were very friendly and it made for a relaxing ride. Especially for my Husband who had never ridden before. David was able to give lots of history while we meandered through the beauty of nature that is so abundently rich there. My favorite part of the ride was the view of the Ashley River and seeing all the wildlife. The Middleton Inn staff were very accomadating allowing an early check in time and providing champagne and choclate covered strawberries upon arrival. Ms. Martin was exremely helpful when making reservations. She recommended the dining enhancement which was a fabulous deal. We really enjoyed our dinner at the resturant. The scallops were to die for! Also, the atmoshere was warm and cozy. The complimantary buffet style breakfast each morning was second to none. No stale danishes here! The best shrimp and grits I have ever eaten. A true dish of the south!! But if grits ain't your thing (smiling) the fresh fruit, bacon, eggs, yogurt, cereal, danishes, coffee and juice should do the trick!!!! All in all The Inn at MIddleton is a must see and stay. My husband I will certainly be returning. Happy Vacationing!!
Our organization recently used this property for a business retreat. Lovely site, great activities, and the inn personnel were very easy to work with, very accommodating, and welcoming. K. D./Executive Assistant
Rooms and amenities far exceeded our expectations. So much to do and see, that you will not want to leave the property! Breakfasts were delicious. Service was superior. And it comes with a resident cat!
This is truly one of the best kept secrets in the southeast! My husband and I stayed at The Inn at Middleton Place for our 12 year anniversary and could not have asked for more. This was actually our second visit to the inn. We received a gorgeous and quiet room overlooking the Ashley River. We enjoyed the cocktail reception (free wine and beer) in the lodge, hiked the grounds and found dozens of shark teeth, enjoyed dinner at the restaurant that night and then went for a late night stroll on the plantation grounds which was spectacular. The next day we rented bikes and rode around the old rice fields...it felt like we were hundreds of miles from civilization with nothing but nature around us! Plus we even received a full hot breakfast the next morning which was delicious. It was one of our best anniversaries yet!
Having stayed at several plantations before, I really thought Middleton was going to be very nice - but found they were outdated in their rooms and missed little opportunities that could have been worth the price. It was ok for the price included the gardens and museum, bt not sure I would go back.
