We had a great experience. Breakfast was delicious. Alan and Michelle were great hosts. We look forward to visiting again in the future. And, as a bonus, Clemson beat SC 56-7. We highly recommend staying there.

We came for an anniversary weekend and couldn't have been happier. Exceptional hospitality with an artisan flair. Beautiful Victotian home with every comfort. Our host was a cheerful Brit who puts on a lovely brunch. All set amid an historic Southern town that's finding some modern mojo. We'll be back!

The new owner of The Skelton House is doing a fantastic job. The house is immaculate and the food is delicious. Alan is gracious and accommodating. There is a bit of an English flair to breakfast. The Skelton House is our home away from home when we are in Hartwell.

The owner, Alan, was so gracious and attended to every detail of the stay. The full homemade hot breakfast was delicious. The house wonderfully equipped and well-kept. The Keurig coffee machine in the hallway upstairs was wonderful!

The Skelton House is an amazing B & B! The owner, Alan, gave us a tour of the house, sharing some its history about the family who originally owned the home. Alan was very warm, friendly , and welcoming. Our room was beautiful, the bed very comfortable, and the amenities were lovely. Breakfast, served in the formal dining room, well... More

Wonderful memories to cherish. We are all so busy this day and time and it's wonderful to get together with family for a weekend just to talk, eat, play games, etc. The owner, Alan said to treat his house as if it were our own - and it was great! He couldn't have done more for us - made us... More

I don't even know where to start. I can't say enough great things about the Skelton House.

Skelton House is a great example of what a B & B should be. The host, Alan, was very welcoming, and had great stories of the history of the Skeltons. There were even original law school diplomas in my particular room. The house was beautifully furnished with antiques, but the rooms have modern bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The breakfast...
