The Old Village Post House website describes their property as “a neighborhood tavern and inn nestled in Mt. Pleasant’s historic Old Village. In feel and decor, it’s as comfortable as your best friend’s home.” They have hit the bullseye on that statement! I stayed at this property to gather material for a story in the BMW Owners News magazine (July 2016). The general manager, Katie Hajjar, was overly accommodating and made sure my stay was completely impeccable. I stayed in the Maverick Suite, 3rd floor – WOW, what a gorgeous and comfortable set-up! I enjoyed a separate living area for sprawling out, and consequently, ended up being an inspirational setting in which to get some writing done.

The bedroom was just as amazing and spacious…I got the best night’s sleep I have had in months.

And, I’m a huge pushover for accommodations that offer up cool, little details. The Old Village Post House is one of those places. After a day of riding in the hot sun, Katie made sure the ice bucket in my room was full along with two bottles of water for this thirsty traveler. And just steps outside my door was an espresso/coffee machine with all the necessary accoutrements offered up.

I also dined at the Old Village Post House restaurant, which was on the first floor, and was treated like royalty…be sure to check out that review below! This property is top-notch, and a great destination for the long-distance motorcyclist as well as all travelers in search of a superb experience.

My stay at the Old Village Post House Inn was absolutely fantastic, but pairing that experience with dinner at the downstairs restaurant put this property on my top five list! I was greeted by a very pleasant and classy team of restaurant staff. From the hostess to my waiter to the chef, my customer service experience was outstanding! THIS “welcome” was on my table…

The food was absolutely exceptional. They have a regular menu as well as their evening specialties. I chose my starting cocktail off of their special menu – the Peach Mule – delicious and refreshing! Through the suggestion of my amazing waiter, Jordan, I tried the Fried Green Tomatoes (with pimento cheese, remoulade and watercress) which were also on the evening’s special menu. What a heavenly appetizer! And then for my main entree, I ordered the Sea Scallops from the regular menu which came with cauliflower custard, pea tendrils and parsley butter…OMG! It’s hard to cook a scallop to perfection, but this chef nailed it. Paired with a delicious Cabernet, this meal was ambrosial. I now have a new grading scale for scallop entrees, with this meal being the measuring stick.

The chef was overly accommodating and sent out two different, complimentary tastings to try. One was a traditional Southern Chow-Chow (sweet and tangy relish) and the other a sampling of “Jimmy Red Grits.” These grits are delicious, and also have a story – a traditional native American corn, these heirloom grits from James Island were near extinction (once stolen by bootleggers) and are now making their way back on the tables of a handful of fine dining restaurants in the Lowcounty area. I felt grateful to have tried something so rare. My entire experience at this property was one I will always treasure and talk about. The Fashionista HIGHLY recommends a visit to the Old Village Post House Inn!!! You will not be disappointed! 💋
