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

It was a great hotel for our quick 3 day stay. The hotel is off the road on a golf course so it was very quiet. The room was clean, very reasonably priced and close to everything that we wanted to do. The staff was very personable and helpful. Would stay here again!

The Guest House at Houndslake is the kind of place you hesitate to tell everyone about because you want it to remain your little secret! It’s a small, charming inn where the staff remember your name and bake cookies for the guests each evening. The rooms are very reasonably priced (from $95) and are the perfect mix of old southern...
