Activities/Attractions: There are plenty of interesting things to do while staying at Kilburnie. Of course, one does not have to do anything. Just relaxing in one of the comfortable rocking chairs on one of the piazzas will make one forget the real world for a while. Snuggling up with a great book in either the parlor or the privacy of a guestroom will do the same. Just being in and around the Inn brings a sense of peace and comfort.

Kilburnie is surrounded by open fields and woodland. The unspoiled woods can be explored by walking the meandering nature trails among a wide variety of native flora and fauna. The backyard is a certified wildlife habitat. Wooden bridges span the natural branches, which flow during the rainy season. From Kilburnie, guests can walk two different routes to historic Craig House.

"You have created a wonderful retreat (with all details accounted for.) from this magnificent, astounding project - what vision! We wish we could stay longer … we will talk about Kilburnie back in Charleston, to our friends in need of a “Country Estate” getaway.

"Thank you both again so much for your gracious hospitality at Kilburnie and Craig Farm. The experience was one of astonishment and wonder at the fantastic degree of the resurrection of Kilburnie and the beautiful additions to an already charming country home at Craig Farm. Both show tremendous dedication, skill, artistic vision and perseverance to the nth degree. You have preserved two fine examples of Upstate South Carolina historic homes and the beautiful land they are situated on, peaceful and serene, in a world that is not. We wish you greatest success in bringing many more people to the Lancaster area to enjoy the beauty and comfort of Kilburnie. Also it certainly was interesting and fun to talk Lancaster and family history. We will look forward to another visit in the future."
