Discover South Carolina’s Romantic Hideaways

Roses and a candlelit dinner. A midnight stroll along the beach. A private adventure in a secluded treehouse. No matter what your idea of a romantic weekend away is, South Carolina can make it happen.

Upstate

The sparkling waters of Lake Jocassee, one of National Geographic’s “Destinations of a Lifetime,” make a perfect romantic destination. Spend the day amidst breathtaking views of the gorges, and then cozy up in a mountain cabin at Devils Fork State Park. Enjoy similar views and fresh-picked, gourmet meals from the modern luxury retreat Three Pines View B&B.

For a more classy weekend, escape to historic Abbeville. Bask in a luxurious stay at the Belmont Inn, and take advantage of its Opera House Package, featuring a one-night stay, two tickets to the 101-year-old theater, wine, dinner and breakfast.

Midlands

Aiken was once the winter fox hunting and horse racing retreat for high society notables, like the debonair Fred Astaire. The Willcox was the stateliest hotel to host them, and today it retains the grace and grandeur of classic Hollywood style. Indulge in a specially crafted romantic getaway and be treated to champagne, dinner for two, fireside s’mores and more.

For something uniquely catered to you, work with an expert at the Bloomsbury Inn in Camden to design a custom package. With sumptuous bedchambers, gourmet breakfasts, roses and champagne, the inn already provides an aura of romance; but the additional pleasures are endless when you can to build an itinerary for two to include local dining or other experiences.

Pee Dee

In Marion, check out the ultimate outdoorsy couples retreat Hideaway Haven. The property has all the amenities for pampering, from a cozy fireplace to a hot tub on the deck. The best part? You are in complete isolation with nature—no neighbors, no other cabins, no noise.

In Dillon, The Columns Bed & Breakfast Inn elicits a sense of true Southern romance. When you walk in the front door from the wide, columned veranda, the majestic artistry of the foyer greets you with lavish furnishings and period details. Gourmet breakfasts are served on fine china and silver, and each guestroom features an elegant fireplace. Here you will be pampered in every way.

Lowcountry

Some couples like to live on the edge. If this is you, then make your next getaway a stay in the Edisto Treehouses at the Edisto River Refuge. Nestled among the trees on the river’s edge, these adult-sized treehouses are fully equipped and totally secluded. Accessible only by canoe, it’s a true adventure in the making.

Full of history (it’s the birthplace of sweet tea), Summerville also embraces the modern lifestyle. Get a taste of both with a stay at the Woodlands Mansion Inn, a beautiful secluded property combining the grandeur of a Southern plantation with every comfort of a world-class hotel. For dinner, try Accent on Wine for craft beer, fine wines and incredible food.
