Commissary – Whitewater Santee


The Commissary is a two-story building overlooking the tolling ponds located separately from the main compound. This structure was built sometime in the third quarter of the 18th century and was used to store the seed rice on the bottom floor and offer provisions for sale to the local community. Local legend has existed for years that this building was a slave jail because it had bars on the windows. While intriguing, this legend is false. The bars on the windows were necessary to keep individuals out because the seed rice was critical to the rice planting process – without it, the entire plantation could be lost.

While the original adjoining Flemish Stable was destroyed by Hugo in 1989, the Commissary has survived intact and was recently renovated to offer modern conveniences. Guests enter the top floor into an expansive living room and kitchen with adjoining dining space. There are two bedrooms with each offering its own separate bathroom. The Commissary offers separate parking and is an ideal option for guests wishing to separate from the main living areas while still accessing all of Middleburg.


The Commissary is currently available for booking by the night.

Rates start at $350 per night plus tax and cleaning fee.
