FARMSTEAD LODGING ON THE CAROLINA COASTAL PLAIN

Farmstead Photo Gallery

Big Mill has always been a working Farm. And while portions of the farm are now devoted to the Bed and Breakfast, our fields still produce yields of cotton, tobacco, soy and pecans. When you stroll around the property, here are some of the sights to enjoy.

grape arbor

Old grape arbor is a great place to relax or hang in one of the hammocks. Tiny fairy lights sparkle at night. It is a great place to watch for fireflies
