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...

We were looking for overnight accomodations that were approximately 1/2 way between South Florida and our final destination in NJ. What we found was a gem a in Dillon, SC. The owner & host of this fine establishment is Miichael. He is a wonderful person that has painstakingly restored this home to it's former glory. We spent several hours conversing...

There is only one B&B in Dillon. And only a fool would open a second and try to compete with Michael. We teased him on departure by threatening to stay the week and try to find one single objet d'art that was misplaced. It would probably take a month and still be futile. This house belongs in Architectural Digest (and...

We were road weary travellers and found a little slice of heaven. Found the Columns on the web and called. I do not have many experiences with B&B's but it looked so nice. we arrived and were welcomed and treated like family. Our accomodations were 5 star, complete with sumptuous bedding and beautiful antiques. We were greeted with wine and...
