Most vacationers come to South Carolina’s Grand Strand for its 60 miles of beaches, 100 golf courses, and live entertainment at Myrtle Beach. A few of the more discriminating head for Litchfield Plantation on Pawleys Island, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and the highest Zagat-rated property on the Grand Strand.
Some arrive by yacht at the resort’s marina, but most enter by car along a quarter-mile lane of ancient moss-draped live oaks.
Guests settle into the restored guest rooms of the circa 1750 manor house or into cottages scattered over 600 acres of former rice fields. They gather at an oceanfront clubhouse, heated pool, pair of tennis courts, gourmet Carriage House restaurant, or simply stroll the grounds. The concierge will also arrange for golf, fishing, hunting, sightseeing, or anything else a guest might desire.
