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.

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'.
