We spent two lovely nights at The Inn at Houndslake in Aiken, SC and truly enjoyed the spacious, clean room with a beautiful golf course view. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Inn is located in a wonderful area for taking walks, swimming, playing golf and having great food. If you travel to the Aiken, South Carolina area,... More

Snuggled alongside the golf course and across from the clubs swimming pool and just a short stroll to the country club, is located the best kept secret Inn in Aiken. The rooms are quite spacious with nice views of the golf course and beautiful grounds. A wonderful main room for coffee and chat with eating privileges at the club house.... More

We just spent 12 nights at the Guest House before moving back in France, it is a great place to stay, peaceful, in the golf. Free access to the pool, awesome in summer. The staff is very nice and you feel like at home. We warmly recommand this hotel.

What a wonderful surprise. We stayed at The Inn at Houndslake because we were "curious" as we had seen the Hotel Impossible episode. What a hidden gem! Spacious rooms, wonderful staff, Country Club privileges and and incredible pool. It is the perfect place for a getaway from Charlotte. We will put The Inn at Houndslake on our "go to" list... More

I had a block of rooms for my daughters wedding. One of our out of town guests called and made a reservation for two nights. Prior to the arrival of all the out of town guests I drove down to check on all the reservations and the hotel did not have at least one of my guests. It was very... More

Quiet clean and southern hospitality at every turn. Windows that showcase the beautiful grounds ..Very helpful, a wealth of information for my family who had just purchased a home in Aiken. Would recommend Houndslake to any one traveling to the Aiken area. SMP

This is a great hotel for non-golfers. The rooms are very large, quiet, and always clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms have huge windows which view the golf course, which means that you have great privacy except for the few hours that someone is playing the hole next to your window. Hounds Lake is a beautiful 27... More

An Aiken native now displaced to OH, I have high expectations when returning South. I stayed in the guest house with a friend, and it was clean, quiet, and all our needs were tended to! I so enjoy a local place with a personal touch - and this was it! (And for all of you golf fans, my husband has... More

I just stopped by The Guest House at Houndslake to make a reservation for out of town guests coming end of this month (it's my go-to place) and I noticed they are doing renovations. I'm not sure why because it's a gem just the way it is.... Full of warmth, charm and southern hospitality!

It's a great place for a weekend get away with your spouse. I kind of want to keep this place my little secret. I must... More
