My husband and I recently stayed here as a convenient halfway point between our home in Florida and our kids in Virginia. What a treat this was. The inn is lovely, clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. Michael, the proprietor, could not have been more welcoming, and clearly takes pride in the many antiques that fill the rooms, describing the history of...

The Columns was all that we had hoped for when we stopped there on our way to FL from MD. From the outside we were impressed with the appearance of the lovely old house with obvious attention to maintenance and landscaping. On the inside we were welcomed graciously by Michael the owner as if we were old friends. Our room...

We celebrated our 46th Anniversary at The Columns Bed and Breakfast. The Dogwood Suite was perfect for us - very elegant and comfortable. Our Innkeeper, Michael, was very helpful and attentive. The breakfasts were wonderful. Overall a Great Experience!

Great stop over on our way from Florida to Virginia. Only about 10 minutes off 95. Just getting around to write this, we stay in June. Had a nice evening and Michael, owner and host, was a pleasure and interesting person. Michael was recovering from a recent knee replacement, but still managed to provide excellent service, what a trooper. Dillon...

The hospitality was amazing.I had business in Lumberton, NC and decided I would rather drive a little to stay at this B&B. I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed my stay so much. The furnishing and decor are beautiful. Very inviting place. Not a lot to do in the town of Dillion. So if you have to stay there, The...

Dillon, SC is midway between Florida and the North East States and The Columns is the best place we've found to overnight. The owner, Michael, is a wonderful host, which if you've ever stayed in a bed and breakfast, you know makes or breaks the place. Speaking of which, his experiences as a home remodeler and antique dealer collector shine...

I cannot say enough good things about the Columns Bed and Breakfast. My husband and I stopped in for one night on our way from Maryland to Georgia and were pleased with how convenient it is to I-95. The owner, Michael, was very kind and accommodating throughout our stay. The home itself it just gorgeous. It is obvious that Michael...

We stayed for one night while heading further north. Michael, the owner, is very gracious and his experience with B&B's is very evident. Everything was very nice and the breakfast the next morning was perfect. He made the quick stay delightful.

We were so fortunate to find this gorgeous inn on our way to visit friends in Augusta, Georgia. Host, Michael, gives attention to every detail. The atmosphere is redolent with history, the furnishings palatial and perfectly placed, the food sumptuous! Michael is so interesting to talk to. There are wonderful books everywhere, and a scrapbook of the original owners. We...

We found The Columns more or less by accident the first time we stayed there. Now we plan our trips to be timed so that we can stop there once more. This is the perfect B&B. The building is beautiful, the rooms are large and comfortable, the breakfast is great, the hosts (they're more like "hosts" than like "owners," are...
