While away on business I chose the Lookaway Inn. I felt safe, home, comfortable and relaxed in my room. I felt like I was in someone's home that was well kept and beautiful. Sammy had extensive knowledge of the property's history and I explored the entire house and grounds. I walked down to the town and ate and had an... More

We stayed at Lookaway Inn the week of Ironman Augusta 2013. The service was personal and helpful before we even arrived in town. Sammy welcomed all of the Ironman guests and went out of his way to provide us with early (and I mean early!) morning light continental-type breakfasts leading up to the event, including opening at 4:45am race day!...

My husband and I stayed one night here before our return to Canada. We wished we had more time to stay as this place is truly charming. The building and furnishings were so tastefully restored, maintained and relevant to what this mansion deserves. Sammi was wonderful and very knowledgable of what the area had to offer. The river walk was... More

Our family group of four were in town for an event in Augusta. I was concerned this would not be a convenient location since it was across the state line. Turns out this was probably the most convenient location of all. Two minutes to downtown Augusta. The Inn is a true southern gem, a step back in time. The view... More

Thanks so much for your kind and generous comments! We find that when we are able to open the main house for events like Ironman, our guests really enjoy the experience of being able to stay in the main mansion. Hoping you will return again this September! More

This is better than any hotel in the area. The Garden Room (the least expensive) was perfect. Beautiful, spacious, clean, waters and ice in the room waiting for you. Sammi was great, very accommodating. Thanks for a great stay even if only one night. June 30th 2013. Definitely would stay here again! Real Southern Hospitality

We enjoyed our stay and the attentivevess of our host Sammi. Great value and location. We enjoyed the river walk and the art museum. The Bee's Knees has great local products cooked just right. We would stay here again and it is better than a hotel. Easy to find and close to shopping and restaurants.

As our trip was delayed causing a late arrival Kelly was there waiting for us. My husband and I absolutely loved the place. Very clean and quiet. Jai, Diana and Kelly were very accommodating. Thank you everyone for your great southern hospitality. Can't wait to visit again.

A great place to stay in the Central Savannah River Area and specifically North Augusta, SC. Conveniently located to downtown Augusta and North Augusta. Very large and comfortable rooms. Great value for the money and very friendly staff.

We stayed here just the one night to break up a long journey. Set in a very quiet but convenient location, this Inn was easy to find and gave a very imposing first impression.
