The Inn at Middleton Place
A short drive west of the city, yet far enough to feel thoroughly removed, this modern inn incorporates large glass windows to connect guests to the surrounding environment of pine and live oaks. Guests stroll through nearby Middleton Place (America's oldest landscaped garden), to fawn over winter blooming camellias, resident sheep, and swans. A signature terraced lawn cascades down to the Ashley River where, if you stand still long enough, you'll spy a good number of curious alligators (don't worry, they are more afraid of you than you of them). Complimentary breakfast, a peaceful pool, wood burning fireplaces, evening wine receptions, access to kayaks and bikes, and esteemed Middleton Place Restaurant make this a sweet retreat.
