I placed my Brother and wife here when I didn't have enough room at my place at Berkeley Plantation. The owner treated them and the rest of my family like family. We had a family breakfast there too.

We went on a ghost tour covering Shirley, Berkely and Edgewood Plantations. Edgewwod by far was the highlight of the tour. Dot is a wonderful storyteller and hostess, and the plantation is absolutely beautiful. Well worth it, looking forward to returning for an overnight stay.
