Whether your trip to the area is short or long, extravagant or low key, Walterboro is sure to save a seat for you on the front porch of the Lowcountry and make you feel right at home in any bed and breakfast or chain hotel.
Guests will be greeted by the beautiful, large oak trees and bountiful azaleas in the spring at the Old Academy Bed & Breakfast, established in 1834. Nestled in the charming town of Walterboro with Charleston, Savannah, Hilton Head Island, Beaufort and Edisto Beach all in close proximity, visitors will relax and feel rejuvenated after resting on the white, southern porch that stretches from one end of the Victorian home to the other. Originally used as Walterboro’s first schoolhouse, the Old Academy was purchased in 1990 and reestablished as a bed and breakfast in 1996. For preserving a historic building, the property was bestowed with the William Lowndes Award by the Colleton County Historical Society.
The Hampton House is a true Lowcountry treasure with 12-foot ceilings, period millwork, a central staircase, a garden room and four fireplaces. This gem offers genuine Southern hospitality by providing guests with a full Southern breakfast in the upscale dining room or even by the crescent-shaped pool. In true South Carolina fashion, golf is always in close proximity and tennis courts are located just a few steps from the quarters. Within the house is the Forde Doll & Doll House Collection, a rare, permanent exhibit featuring over 50 dollhouses, room boxes, toy kitchens and antique dolls. Hampton House was featured in Southern Living magazine and the property also was honored with the Walterboro Key Historic Property Award by the Historical Preservation Society.
