My husband and I arrived an hour and a half after check-in, but the innkeeper was still waiting for us and was so friendly and cheerful! My first glimpse of this inn was impressive: the sky was dark and there was a very bright full moon shining on the front of the antebellum style pillared front porch. The room we... More

My wife and I stayed for 1 night whilst travelling to Charleston. Web picture showing outside frontage looks amazing, however in real life it does need a bit of TLC. The room we had was clean and tidy, situated in the rear of the property not in the mansion house itself. Breakfast is served in the main house but is... More

My girlfriend and I recently spent a night here as more or less a stopover in our drive to Charleston. We were met promptly by the innkeeper, Sammy, who could not have been a more pleasant and friendly individual. No need to describe the inn as it well characterized in other reviews. Everything about our stay was very nice. It... More

The Lookaway Inn is a huge white antebellum house that was converted into a Inn 25 years ago at which time 2 room wings were added. The new owners, the Combs, have done a beautiful job restoring.

We stayed overnight and were amazed at the personal attention we received! We were able to tour the beautiful colonial home and learned about it's history. The rooms in the home are very beautifully done. We stayed in the lovely newer rooms built behind the mansion. We received a phone call to check how we were doing after dinner in... More

Quiet, relaxing atmosphere. The old house is comfortable and beautiful. Nice view from the top of the hill. Sammy was probably the nicest man you could work with. He even came in at 5:00 a.m. to make sure there was a light breakfast for all of us participating in the Augusta Half Ironman. Very hospitable. Clean rooms, each with own... More

Place was lovely with period appointments and furnishings, clean and well kept! Staff was friendly and helpful. Felt like we were staying in a guest cottage with friends--a DEFINITE do-over--loved it!

Had a very relaxing time staying at Lookaway. The inn is very quiet and a great place to go for a unique experience that you just can't get at the chain hotels. I would highly recommend staying at Lookaway.

Lookaway Inn is many things, but "chain-hotel" is definitely NOT one of them! Thanks so much for your kind review, and please, plan to stay with us again one day soon. More

Lookaway Inn is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. We visited Augusta on a get-away weekend, and Sammy was a wonderful host. The room was beautiful and very clean. Augusta has so much to offer - we will be back!
