We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Inn at Houndslake. Our rooms were great, the staff is more than gracious and helpful, we had access right out the door to golf and an excellent buffet at the restaurant adjoining the hotel.

The Penlands and their staff at The Inn showed our extended family, who had traveled from a wide variety of cities to visit Aiken, great service and clean, comfortable accommodations. Considering the large size of our party, we could not have been more welcomed, and the staff bent over backwards to see that our needs were met.

Our school booked this little gem of an Inn which is tucked away among some beautiful pines and other trees right on a golf course. The staff was extremely accommodating and the rooms were very spacious. This seems like it would make a great spot for a family reunion. Wished it was summer so we could have used the nice... More

Recently we traveled down to SC for a family funeral. Hotels in Augusta were completely booked or ridiculously expensive that week, so we decided to expand our search and check out Aiken.

We, my husband and I, stayed @ The Inn at Houndslake the week before the Masters Tournament in 2016.
