                      Mansfield Plantation is a historic plantation in Georgetown County, South Carolina, just north of Charleston via Hwy 17. Encompassing roughly 1,000 acres, Mansfield is considered 'one of the most well-preserved antebellum rice plantations in South Carolina.'

                      Mansfield includes hundreds of acres of manicured upland pine forest, as well as swamp land, cleared fields, and the remaining system of levies and dykes that made rice farming possible in the region.

                      Guest to the plantation can explore the entire plantation grounds via a well-maintained network of trails and paths that crisscross the property.

                      Each morning, guests are treated to a plantation-style breakfast in the main dining room of the main house. Kathryn, the innkeeper, is famous for her baked egg dishes, stuffed French toast, and shrimp 'n grits, among others. This breakfast should keep you satisfied until supper ... always does for most.

                      Over the years, Mansfield has earned perfect to near-perfect reviews on many major review sites. Guests come from not only South Carolina, but from across the USA as well as Europe, South Africa, and beyond. All leave with the satisfaction of having traveled back in time to an era steeped in American tradition.

                      Guests come to experience a slower paced experience, free from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. It is rare to be able to walk for miles and not see any signs of modern day life. This true 'Southern' experience has garnered the interest of many notable publications, including features in Garden & Gun, Charleston Magazine, CNN.com In addition to hosting numerous television shows and photo shoots, Mansfield Plantation was also the backdrop for major plantation scenes in the Mel Gibson's Oscar-nominated 'The Patriot'.

                      Just off the plantation grounds, in Georgetown, you'll enjoy a charming antebellum port town with amazing local restaurants, shops and boutiques. The nearby beach resort towns of Pawley's Island and Litchfield are just a few miles north of Georgetown on Hwy 17.

                      Less than an hour's drive south on Hwy 17 is Charleston, in all her glory. Experience one of America's hottest travel attractions, all the while staying just north at a historic plantation in Georgetown. We recommend a day trip to Charleston and a day trip to one of the beaches with a stop into Georgetown.

                      Just north of Georgetown is Myrtle Beach, full of family attractions, themed events, and resorts.

                      Dogs are welcome at Mansfield Plantation for a small fee. Please visit the FAQ section of our website for more information.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: Mansfield Plantation is owned by the Parker family of Asheville, NC, who was able to reclaim the plantation after it went up for sale in 2004. John R. Parker is the great, great grandson of the last Parker who owned the property at the turn of the Civil War. This marks the first time in recent history that an antebellum plantation was reclaimed by direct descendants of the original owners.

                      Why the Owner Chose Georgetown:
                      Mansfield is a one-of-a-kind property ... a true piece of American history. The main home, outhouses, slave cabins, slave chapel, and rice mill structures are all maintained to their original form. Guests to the property are able to explore a grand plantation on a very personal, private level ... no tour guides or crowded lines.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                      A chance to experience life on a plantation, as well as enjoy the nearby cities of Georgetown and Charleston. Mansfield is bordered by the Black River, with easy canal access and a boat ramp. Local kayak/canoe outfits are happy to provide boat rentals and will have your rig waiting at our dock upon your arrival. Or, enjoy bird watching. Mansfield offers world-class bird watching opportunities, with managed wetlands and uplands brimming with native wildlife and fauna. The canals of Mansfield—as well as the Black River and Georgetown harbor—offer numerous fishing opportunities. offshore fishing trips can also be chartered from Georgetown harbor.
