Fodor's Expert Review Bloomsbury Inn

1707 Lyttleton St., Camden, South Carolina, 29020, USA

Noted Civil War diarist Mary Boykin Chestnut wrote much of her famous account in this romantic, award-winning 1849 house built by her husband's family. The inn's four rooms are richly decorated with carved-wood or wrought-iron beds and fireplaces with antique mantels, and bathrooms are decorated with Italian tiles from the 1930s. The extravagant breakfast begins with a fruit course, includes homemade bread, and ends with an entrée such as freshly baked quiche with ham and asparagus.

PROS

  • impressive breakfast
  • richly decorated rooms
  • electric car charging stations on-site

CONS

  • no elevator
