This second floor room has 250 square feet, proves that antiques can be comfortable and shows off our ability in The Joinery to restore antiques for contemporary use. The antique cherry Eastlake bed was made wider and longer, converting it to a queen size. A fall front plantation desk, 1845, a Renaissance Victorian dresser, Eastlake washstands and stuffed chairs are in the room.
Mr. W.J. Montgomery, (1851 – 1913) who first lived in the house, was a S.C. state senator, lawyer, banker and farmer. The larger prints hanging are original to the house.
Graciousness and true southern hospitality is how we can describe our visit at The Grove. The feel of days gone by with modern conveniences made for a stay that makes us want to return. We were treated like royalty.
It is true that even though we came as a guest, we are leaving with a feeling of making new friends and warm home away from home to which we definitely hope to return to stay longer. We truly had a wonderful experience.
What an absolutely beautiful Victorian and well renovated to put it into the 21st century. You two have created a haven for travelers - a step into another century that begs a repeat visit.
