FREE Admission To Intriguing On-site Venues
Your stay at The Inn at Middleton Place includes free admission to these three exciting venues where you will learn the history and culture of this great area and even see it acted out as it was back then.

The Gardens at Middleton Place, the oldest landscaped gardens in the United States, sit just outside the doors of this beautiful inn. Established in 1741 by Henry Middleton, the garden reflects grand classic early 18th century European and English style with geometry and symmetry as the rule. Employing great reasoning skills in the art of aesthetic balance with careful attention to the woods and water, it is no wonder the gardens are so breathtaking!

The Middleton Place House Museumwas originally part of a three building residential complex that once overlooked the Ashley River and was composed of a gentleman`s quarters, library, and conservatory. Originally the gentleman`s quarters known as the South Flanker, it is the only surviving portion of the triad after a fire in February of 1865 claimed the other two buildings just two months before the end of the Civil War. Restored from the flames, the building weathered earthquakes and homeowners, and even housed slaves and freedmen who served the Middleton family before finally becoming the House Museum in 1975.

The Middleton Place Plantation Stableyards, which has existed since the Civil War, has continued to breed the same buffalo, sheep, goats, poultry and guinea hogs over the last two centuries. Skilled workers who demonstrate the skills practiced by the artisans who formerly maintained the facility can still be found there today and will gladly explain Plantation life from the Emancipation to the Reconstruction and through the twentieth century.

Notable Accommodations
The Inn at Middleton Place`s presence has been recognized nationally on more than one occasion. Not only has it been featured as a Last Minute Getawayby the TODAY Show but it has also received awards and recognition from such organizations as the American Institute of Architects and the SC Wildlife Federation.

This Inn has also been honored in National Geographic Traveler`s first ever Stay List (2008) and was published in Zagats 2009 Top U.S. Hotels, Resorts and Spas.

Its beautiful modern architecture and amenities wonderfully compliment the history and culture that flows through this inn and its entire property surrounding. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the simpler side of things, as they once were, and as they remain today only in places like this.

Beautiful river views from room (be sure not to get a courtyard room). Stairs (no elevator) so if you can't carry bags up a long flight of stairs, get a bottom level room RIVER SIDE room. Don't pay extra for packages. Very old squeaky bed.... not restful. Dated bath room but nice soaps. Nice wood floors and wood chairs. Consider getting a sofa bedroom (wish we had...). There is No microwave. Great grounds and great views. Loved the big Oak trees and Magnolia trees which were in bloom. ... Read more

We really enjoyed our stay at the Middleton Place Inn. The staff was wonderful in all areas. Stacey and Matt in the Lodge were so welcoming. The room was a treat to stay in with ceiling to floor windows that allowed a beautiful view of the Ashley River. Outside we could sit on comfortable chairs or lay in a hammock while enjoying the wildlife. We saw deer, alligators, turtles, birds, squirrels, jumping fish, swans and the farm animals at the plantation. Kayaking on the Ashley River is alwa... Read more

we'd planned to see the plantation, so staying there just added to the experience. Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely unique. Well worth it. So much of seeing the plantation was included in the room rate that we felt it was an excellent value. Very authentic.... Driving into Charleston from Middleton was easy....just do it outside of rush hour.

This was a good place for a quiet getaway. Not overly fancy, but private and surrounded by natural beauty. I would especially recommend this for cooler weather when the fireplace could be used. The tile bathtub needs updating, and the dirt paths outside aren't for everyone, but otherwise it is nice to be able to walk to Middleton Place and enjoy the gardens and restaurant. Next time, we plan to spend more time on the plantation and less time traveling to downtown!

I did not originally book the Inn when we were planning our anniversary date to Charleston mostly because it's about 15 miles outside of Charleston (or an hour+ into Charleston we learned during peak season).

The Inn at Middleton Place reminds me of a retreat in the woods, away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. The staff were very accommodating, especially the young woman, at the registration desk, Tanae`. She personally made sure our needs were met. The room was lovely but could use a paint job and a little updating. Breakfast included was adequate and presented well. Best of all, admission to Middleton Place is included, a $42.00 saving per person!

The Inn provides a torch light each room in case of need, e.g., walking at night on the ground. There also is an umbrella at each room door.. Flat screen TV is small and Internet is slow, but you do not come here for these. Go to visit the plantation with you kids, enjoy the garden, the sun rise and sun set. Grab a book and a bottle of wine take a site on the ground surrounded by trees and enjoy nature and its ambience.. The architecture is still beautiful after all these years!

The setting of the Inn at Middleton Place is unique. The hotel rooms/cabins are nested in the middle of ancient trees in the bank of the Ashley river. However, some rooms in the lower levels are very humid and the view is not great. We asked for a different room and the hotel accommodated our request, although it took more than 2 hours. The walk to the restaurant building is very pleasant and there is a happy hour in the main lodge with local beer and a good wine selection.The hotel also offers ... Read more

Our stay was too short to be able to take advantage of the many activities available. The rooms were a bit"tired" but I enjoyed the unique qualities and setting. The staff was friendly and helpful. Close enough to Charleston to enjoy the city but far enough away to escape the crowds.

Wife and I had a great time at this hotel. We arrived late on a Friday night. Staff was very friendly taking the time explaining the different activities, locations of the lodge and other things to do and see. Room was clean and clutter less. Breakfast was excellent. Muffins where extremely fresh and oatmeal had plenty of items to add to it. The lodge happy hour was nice and relaxing. Plenty of beer and wine choices to go along with a comfortable setting. We will be back.

Stayed here the the weekend of Sept. 30 - Oct. 2. Upon checking in, noticed that there was a leak in the bathroom ceiling, coming from the can light directly above the toilet. Given this, every time you used the rest room, water would leak on your head - leak was big enough to have noticeable amounts of water on the floor and toilet. I called to inform the front desk on Friday night, they said they would send someone. Returned from dinner, noticed it was not fixed so called again on Saturday... Read more

Architecture of the hotel is wonderful. However maintenance standards don't exist. Cobwebs, mold/ mildew affecting almost every surface of the hotel. Staff are very pleasant and helpful, but the condition of the property was unacceptable.

This location and architecture is second to none. The plantation is beautiful and the peace you find here is grand. The only draw back to the facility is that the rooms with dramatic floor to ceiling Windows need to be updated. They are showing their age...some can ignore this because you literally feel like you are in a tree house when you are surrounding by trees and the river.

The best way to enjoy Middleton Plantation is to stay at the Inn. A back path (dimly lit at night) allows you anytime access to the property. Along the way, you are treated to wide sweeping vistas of the Ashley River as it meanders through the tidal marshes. This river was the main thoroughfare to Charleston back in the day. At dusk the property takes on a mystical aura as you cross over the bridge and climb the hill up to the restaurant. Scarlett O'Hara might appear at any moment. Middle Place ... Read more

This was a most difficult review to write as we were looking to get out of the tourist old town area for some peace and quiet. The Inn at Middleton sure offered this...it's location along the river is wonderful, the evening happy hour in the lodge is nice...take your wine outside and sit on a river-side bench. However, the Inn was built in '87 in what they refer to as a "minimalist" style and we found that way out of character for the wonderful setting. The walls are poured concrete and when yo...

If you are looking for a retreat away from it all the Inn at Middleton Place fits the bill. Situated on the grounds of Middleton Place Plantation and Gardens overlooking the Ashley River, the only sounds you hear come from nature. Rooms are comfortably furnished with a rustic feel. Food is available on site. We plan to stay here again when we visit Charleston for a wedding at nearby Magnolia Plantation.

I was really looking forward to a great stay at the Inn at Middleton Place. The plantation is beautiful and the Inn won many awards in the day when it was built. But it was built at about the date of the "Spoleto Festival 1969" poster on the wall of our room (easy to spot, it was the only wall decor). The "brutalist" (raw concrete) exterior construction style has not aged well and the Danish modern furnishings and interiors have deteriorated without maintenance - the floor was more corrugated ...

We found it on our Hotel Tonight app and we were pleasantly surprised at the value for such a beautiful location Our stay included breakfast and full access to the grounds (plantation) which includes stables, a gorgeous garden and breath taking views. The only draw back was the furnishings in our room. Very pretty and quaint but uncomfortable. No comfy chair in sight.

What you may think of this Inn will depend a lot on what you are looking for in your stay. If you are looking for a quiet, off-the-beaten-path place to relax in a beautiful setting for a few days, and a cozy room with a fireplace, you will love this place. If you are looking for a more typical hotel experience or just passing through for a night, it's probably not the right fit.
