Guests to Charleston can once again stay the night at the Woodlands Mansion after the property added lodging Monday.
The property, once the state’s only Mobil Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond award-winning resort, closed as the Woodlands Resort and Inn in September 2012. It reopened earlier this year under the ownership of Summerville businessman Tom Limehouse.
Initially, Limehouse reopened the property with a focus on catering to corporate events and weddings.
“With the high demand for luxury accommodations in Charleston I am pleased to announce the addition of lodging availability at Woodlands Mansion,” Limehouse said.
Adding accommodations weren’t always part of the plan. In February, Limehouse said he was considering opening the properties’ 18 bedrooms on a limited basis for corporate and wedding guests.
The mansion was originally built in 1906 and has since been restored.
