Shem Creek Inn – Check It Out!

Shem Creek Inn

Living in the Old Village/ Old Mt. Pleasant neighborhood poses one big challenge… where do my friends and family stay when visiting?  I recently had family visit, and we booked a room at the Shem Creek Inn. It was FABULOUS!  Completely renovated and only a bike ride away from home, they were thrilled with the accommodations!

With this deal, you receive a $30 credit for Shem Creek Inn merchandise and a $25 gift card to Water’s Edge restaurant which is located right next door! Not to mention the waterfront pool at the Inn and the fact it is within walking distance to many dining and nightlife spots and water activities. Shem Creek Inn really is a hidden gem!
