Perched in an old pecan orchard on a high bluff overlooking unspoiled tidal creeks and beautiful, wildlife-filled salt marsh, this once abandoned barn remembers Palmyra Plantation in its working-farm days when horses and mules plowed hundreds of acres of corn and came home to rest at day's end. Their living quarters have now been restored and modernized into 9 charming guest rooms.

Corn was stored in the corn crib (now the dining room); grain in the feed room (now the kitchen) and hay from the second floor hay loft (seen at left circa 1930s – now suites).

In the old days fields, interspersed with creeks, woods and marshes, the lands extended from the barn to Sunbury, 3 miles away. It was a perfect place to search for Indian pottery and Civil War buttons or to wait at the edge of a misty marsh to watch wild horses. Little has changed. It was and is a magic place...quiet, private, alive with history, wildlife and astonishing natural beauty.

The large guest rooms and spacious suites at Palmyra Barn B&B Inn B&B Inn are fully climate controlled and each has a private bathroom. There are thousands of pristine acres of elbow room all around it, with grassy trails for hiking, biking, birding and riding, not to mention flat water kayaking for almost touchable enjoyment of rare birds, dolphins and other wildlife.

Group Discount: Parties taking 3 or more rooms for 2 or more nights are eligible for a 10% discount on room rates.

This sunny twin room in The Barn's old hayloft is a favorite.

The tall, weathered chest is original to The Barn. This room has a huge walk-in closet and an airy, brick-floored bath. Behind the lace curtains is a tree-top view of the 100-year-old pecan orchard.
