Abingdon Manor serves as a special venue for many of the major businesses and corporations in the Greater Florence/Lumberton area.  Lodging for special clients, private business dinners, luncheons and corporate social functions are seamlessly handled by the staff at the Inn and Restaurant.


Corporate Meetings

When business meetings require a private off-site location, the spacious entry hall can accommodate groups of 40 classroom style or up to 24 seated in a large rectangular format.  The library and parlors work well for small group or breakout sessions.

Full or half day facility rentals are available and include morning beverage service with pastries and afternoon refreshments.

When planning a partner or senior staff retreat, the facilities, accommodations, activities and meals can all be included.

“Abingdon Manor has provided a picturesque and historical setting for many successful Progress Energy events.  Their service has always been outstanding and the staff is most professional.  We are proud to be the energy provider for this vibrant, award winning destination Country Inn located in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina”

Private Dinners & Receptions 

For groups of 4 to 125 let “The Dining Room at Abingdon Manor” plan your corporate entertaining.  The restaurant seats 30 in the main dining room and dining porch.  For groups of 30 to 75, three attended food stations, each with a “mini meal” allow guests to sample a variety of food and beverages while interacting and mingling with all function attendees.  Large group events of 75 or more dine from specialty tables crafted to suit the occasion.  Musicians, entertainers and unique party favors can also be arranged.

“When the occasion calls for entertaining in style, whether for a couple or a group, there is no finer establishment in northeastern South Carolina with which to entrust the assignment than Abingdon Manor.  The atmosphere and surroundings are elegant, yet they provide a relaxed and comfortable setting for fine food and fellowship.

Each year our management staff eagerly anticipates our annual Christmas celebration which is usually held at Abingdon Manor.  Dressed in our finest, we gather for a social hour, followed by a full-course gourmet dinner after which we exchange gifts by the fireside among the tasteful holiday decorations.  The Griffeys are specialists in ensuring that every detail is perfect, and the food is both delicious and delectable.  By the time we depart, everyone is in a festive mood, and some of us have been known to stay overnight in the luxurious and well-appointed accommodations.

Located near Interstate 95, Abingdon Manor is only a short drive from many parts of the eastern Carolinas.  Thus, this is truly the destination where comfort, convenience, and celebration converge.”

“I heard of this facility from my company staff who is knowledgeable of everything, she especially has great talent finding wonderful restaurants in the United States.  She recommended this facility and asked that we use it for special occasions such as VIP visits.  I decided to confirm that this is the best place for VIPs from Honda.

On May 10, 2006 the menu was .. Crawfish etouffee, roasted red pepper soup, grapfruit & Campari sorbet, standing Caesar salad, filet with Bordelaise sauce and poached pear with Amaretto cream… Wow, it was a perfect one, the best I have ever had in the United States.  I travel the world…France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Switzerland, Spain….Nevertheless, I have not had this perfect food.  Every dish looks beautiful, tastes excellent, smells delicious…My heart, my eyes, my tongue fall in love immediately.

I have visited Abingdon Manor many times since this first visit.  Every guest is amazed at our treatment.  Although Abingdon Manor quietly exists in Latta, South Carolina, its legend thrives in Japan.”
