I was passing through the area doing some genealogical work in the Spartanburg area and wanted a quiet place to stay. I was tired of the chain hotels along the interstate and wanted something with more local flavor. The Walnut Inn was exactly what I was hoping for. It is a beautiful old mansion, lovingly restored, in a small town... More

Nice, quiet, beautifully decorated Victorian home and gardens. We enjoyed the lovely room with a view and he multiple choices of coffee or tea in the dining room anytime of the day or night was great, too. We really liked Hoyt--He was very kind and accommodating!

We booked this accommodation about 3 weeks ago. Turned up today at 2:30pm and the place was locked up, and nobody around but as check-in wasn't until 3pm we knew we had to wait. We waited until 4:15pm as nobody was answering the phone and we couldn't get any other contact details as the website was down. This was supposed... More

David is a gracious host and when you travel as much as I do for business it is wonderful to find somewhere that doesn't feel like a plain motel. I highly recommend you try this B&B. An hour from Asheville and the Biltmore and a little over an hour from Cherokee NC and the Smoky Mountains.

Beautiful old southern home nestled among huge oak trees. Peaceful surroundings and the perfect place to kick back, relax and simply enjoy the atmosphere. Each room is well appointed and the Cookie Jar Bistro located within the B&B is the best place in town for a quiet lunch of soups, salads and sandwiches. The owners are simply lovely and make...
