The South's Charming Inns 

Nov 10, 2016

The late author Pat Conroy loved this place for the marsh, live oaks, and Spanish moss. He even celebrated his 70th birthday here shortly after the inn’s renovation last year. Your own experience starts with a glass of bubbly on the porch, where the view toward the salt water of Port Royal Sound almost assuredly promises dolphin sightings. Upstairs, the guest rooms are calming, with crisp linens complemented by cotton-scented toiletry items made from local goat’s milk. Local is a pervading theme: The food is sourced nearby (coffee from a Charleston roaster, plus grits and biscuits made with products from Columbia’s Adluh Mill), and the activities make the most of the coast. For outings, use the inn’s kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and fat-tire bikes. Tour the town (which incendiary General Sherman didn’t burn), or take jaunts to nearby islands to experience Gullah culture.
