The Inn and Middleton Place is one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed in the Charleston area, which I visit a couple times a year. The Inn is located on the property of Middleton Place, a very historic plantation and gardens about 20 minutes from Downtown Charleston on the Ashley River adjacent to Magnolia and Drayton Hall, the other two Ashley River plantations that are open to the public and well worth visiting.
The Inn is about 20 years old and was considered very modern for its time. It is situated in the woods on a bank above the river within a 5 minute walk of the gardens and historic buildings but out of sight of both. The rooms are of very clean design with noble materials used on all surfaces you experience. Floor to ceiling glass is in every room with louvered shutters to control light and privacy. Some rooms look out onto lawns and the river. . .others into the woods. All are very pleasant comfortable spaces and come with afternoon snacks, a generous breakfast in a central dining room above a small creek, and free access to the historic estate and gardens.
There are fairly extensive walking trails around the grounds which turned out to be a big benefit since I was staying with my dog at this pet friendly establishment.
Some people will not want to drive into Charleston from this location but it really isn't a bad drive and the combination of quiet rural plantation surroundings and the historic urban experience of Old Charleston is perfect from my perspective.
