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 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...

We were looking forward to a return visit to the Guest House, but were extremely disappointed at the condition of this property since our visit two years ago. Perhaps it was worth spending the extra cost per night for the "suite" (just an upgraded room) -- we did have one on our previous visit and a relative had one this... More

I stayed at the Guest House at Houndslake while my fiancée was on a business trip. We absolutely enjoyed every moment. From our arrival to departure, the staff was so helpful and the location is prime. Tucked away in the Houndslake country club, this well kept secret is an excellent value with exceptional amenities. Because I would be alone while... More
