Allen, the owner, was very helpful and prepared an early breakfast so that we could make it to the race . The grounds are well-kept and beautiful. I highly recommend it as a quiet getaway,

Beautiful house and service by the owner in downtown Hartwell. Hartwell itself is a little limited in things to do but it is growing. The Skelton House was a perfect location for biking. The area was very safe. I would definitely stay here again. I think it's the best housing option in Hartwell.

Luxury Trip into History
I really enjoyed my weekend at the Skelton House. It was very relaxing and the host was very interesting to talk to. He has only owned the Bed and Breakfast for 18 months, but he has researched well the history of the house and even has original law school diplomas for the father and sons of the original owners - the Skeltons. There's beautiful antiques throughout the house, but the guest rooms are well appointed with modern bathrooms and comfortable beds.
