These three historic inns around the River Region will take your next weekend trip to a whole new level of awesome.
At the crest of a hill in Augusta's historic Summerville neighborhood sits the Partridge Inn, the longstanding regal queen of the city's most revered buildings. As part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, the inn retains many historic elements, such as the original woodwork and the quarter-mile of iconic verandahs. Just three miles from downtown Augusta, their rooftop offers some of the best views in the city.
Once the neoclassical mansion owned by James U. Jackson, founder of North Augusta, this stately dwelling now boasts a prestigious AAA Four Diamond rating and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in America. Now known as the Rosemary Inn Bed and Breakfast, no detail is overlooked, resulting in an atmosphere of relaxed luxury. Fine linens and featherbed toppers lull guests into sweet dreams, cozy ropes wrap them in warmth, and an ever-changing gourmet breakfast invites them to linger at the table.
3. The Willcox
Set in the midst of downtown Aiken, with a reputation for its equine-oriented interests, The Willcox is a haven for travelers and locals alike, drawn to the hotel's undisputed standing as the "living room of the community." In addition to being named "Number One Resort Hotel in the South" by Travel and Leisure's 2016 World's Best Awards, the property's restaurant and spa have received their own awards and earned accolades for outstanding cuisine and service.
