The setting was a beautiful golf course. Staff was wonderful - played with my cat and one carried her litter box to the car for me. Room was lovely. Very pleasant stay after driving 460 miles!

The Inn was an excellent choice. The establishment is a bit dated but surprisingly gives you a real home like feeling. It very quaint and clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a king size bed and it was one of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept on when traveling for a quick getaway. I would definitely recommend you stay at the Inn at Houndslake when visiting Aiken South Carolina.

Skip the restaurant.
The Inn is quaint and the staff was very nice. We had our two grandchildren for an overnight stay. This Inn is not geared toward children however we had no problems. We did have a major issue when we went next door to their restaurant. It was not busy however it took several minutes to get seated. Once we were, we sat for a bit before water was brought to the table. We ordered club soda and it was brought. We had to ask for menus. Then we sat for twenty minutes being totally ignored by the staff. I fed our one year old grandson while waiting. Every time he laughed the neighboring gentleman at the next table covered his ears. He was not loud, not crying, just laughing. We finally just got up and left. We were all hungry and it was obvious we were in the wrong place for dinner.
