Visiting a unique destination like Abbeville calls for out-of-the-ordinary accommodations. You'll find two good options right in town.

The upscale Belmont Inn offers both history and Southern charm. It’s located in Abbeville’s Historic District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Formerly known as Eureka Hotel, the Belmont Inn has risen from the dead on at least three occasions, undergone restorations and renovations—and then more restorations—and is now over 115 years old. The hotel was built to accommodate the textile industry, whose traveling salesmen pinned Abbeville as the halfway point between New York and Miami. With the Abbeville Opera House across the street, the inn also has served as convenient lodging for out-of-town performers.

Today, the inn is a warm and inviting place to stay, overflowing with the ambiance of a bygone era. Thanks to the many renovations and restorations over the years, the hotel now offers 25 elegant guest rooms, two restaurants and a pub. A perfect weekend getaway, you can stroll through the historic square, visit shops, dine at the Belmont’s Tinker Alley or Restaurant Bleue, and see a great show across the street at the Abbeville Opera House. The possibilities are endless.

Imagine a Southern Greek Revival home with expansive porches and luxurious bedrooms located just a short walk from historic downtown Abbeville. If that's the kind of lodging you enjoy, check out the Veranda on Main. The stately house on Main Street looks like it could be a historic home built in the 1800s, but it’s really only a few years old. Its magnificent structure is tall and elongated with 10-foot ceilings, generous room sizes, wide doorways and sweeping porches offering a fantastic view of the charming street. Built in 2007, the home’s exquisite style combines the look and feel of Southern historic charm with the added benefits of newer materials and efficiency. There are four bedrooms and four baths designed to create a picturesque Southern experience. Sit a while and let the Veranda on Main melt away your troubles.

For more conventional and budget-friendly options, drive 20 minutes to Greenwood where you'll find national hotel chains like Holiday Inn Express & Suites, Fairfield Inn & Suites and Days Inn by Wyndham.
