A Picturesque Winter Getaway
Thanks to thousands of heirloom camellia bushes that bloom every January, February, and March, Charleston ranks among the most beautiful U.S. winter travel destinations.
Charleston's version of a secret winter wonderland: Garden paths meandering through dense groves of lush camellia bushes. Velvety green sprigs and rosy blooms as far as the eye can see. Whisper-thin petals take flight in a gentle breeze and sprinkle the ground with snowy serenity.
We only see snow once, maybe twice, a decade; however, we have plenty of hot chocolate & Champagne, cashmere throws, camellias in full bloom, and cozy fireplaces at Planters Inn!
A Town & Country Destination
Want to discover to the soul-stirring beauty of the Lowcountry? Come during winter months and spend time at Middleton Place, a sprawling estate with acres-upon-acres of almost otherworldly natural beauty located a short drive from Planters Inn.
Wander past ancient moss-draped oak trees, misty marshes overlooking the Ashley River, and a breathtaking array of camellia varieties including the 1786 Reine des Fleurs, one of the first camellias planted in America.
