Oak Grove Plantation B&B
We combine the best of the 19th and 21st centuries with old-time hospitality and modern “green” features, including solar panels. Set aside your hectic life for a moment and let us pamper you in another world, where the pace is slower and the hospitality warm. Your visit to Oak Grove Plantation starts with a glass of lemonade or iced tea served leisurely on our front porch overlooking 400 acres full of Southern pines, oaks and teeming with wildlife…crickets, birds, frogs, box turtles and an occasional fox.
After you are shown your room, I’ll give you a leisurely tour of my ancestral home, which has been in my family for nearly 200 years. You’ll have plenty of time to see Civil War and Revoluntionary War landmarks, car racing venues, antique shops, lakes and museums. You may want to go golfing, fishing or boating. Or just take a quiet walk or bike ride on our fields, trails, woods and streams. In the evening, we’ll direct you to some of our fine restaurants, not far from our B&B.
After a refreshing night’s sleep in one of our three guest rooms, you’ll awake to the smell of our specialty Cluster Springs egg puff, lemon souffle pancakes, homemade biscuits or muffins and coffee or other delicious choices that have won raves from our customers. Our gourmet breakfast is served family style in the victorian dining room, sun shining in through the bay windows. You may want to read a book on our cheery sun porch, go on a wildflower walk or have a reiki treatment from me…a hands-on soothing and relaxing exercise. Whatever you do, you’ll return home rejuvenated, wanting to come back again.
Besides having solar panels, The inn recycles, has a compost pile for vegetable scraps and has installed low-e energy-efficient storm windows on the south side. Motorists who arrive in hybrids get a third night free. Also, there is optional linen service and all the laundry on site dries on a clothesline. Rain barrels collect water, the inn has a tankless electric hot water heater, and it uses compact fluorescent lighting.
