The Inn at Middleton Place offers a modernist counterpoint to Charleston's traditional style with award-winning architecture that rises from the moss-draped grounds of a historic plantation. Visit while the weather is milder and save up to 40% on current rates.
Rooms are $109 per night, Sundays-Thursdays through Dec. 27. Weekends are also available at discounted rates, as are upgraded rooms.
With hardwood floors, cypress paneling and handcrafted furniture, guest rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows that look out at the serene wooded setting, Ashley River or marshlands.
All stays include admission to Middleton Place Oldest Landscaped Gardens, House Museum and Plantation Stableyards, which date from the late 1600s ($74 value). Explore the local grounds by horse during pleasant autumn temperatures.
