I had a nice stay at the Lookaway Inn. The staff were very welcoming and the room was lovely. I wish I had spent more time enjoying the property. Do note that you need to communicate your plans in advance as they may be short staffed or not have many guests. I dorm have breakfast the first morning but dos... More

We stayed in the Hawthorne room which is on the wing in the back. We arrived later than we thought and the innkeeper Sammy was very welcoming. The room was very cozy and had a small private veranda. The room was nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable, and a very nice walk in shower. The only complaint we have for... More

Let me start by saying this is a lovely property. The main house is beautifully decorated. The guest rooms, which are located in wings behind the main house, are tastefully decorated. While our room was clean, it could have used a little TLC. It appeared as if no one had stayed in it for awhile. My main disappointment was the... More

I spent the night at Lookaway Inn on my way through North Augusta recently. It is a lovely place. The main house is beautiful, and the courtyards and grounds are as well. The guest rooms are off the courtyard, and they have everything needed for a great stay. Sammy is a gracious host, and he made sure we had everything... More

I have to say I usually don't take the time to write reviews but this place was spectacular. The building is beautiful! Could maybe use a touch of paint in some areas. Walking in you are overwhelmed with the amazing room, from chandeliers to gorgeous woodwork. My room very clean, bathroom was sparkling and every piece of furniture was glowing.... More

First impression pulling into the parking lot was "Wow". We phoned ahead of time because we were pulling a 4 horse trailer and Sam who manages the inn graciously told us we could park directly in front of the inn (trailer took up 6 parking spots). He greeted us at the top of the steps with a warm southern welcome.... More

My family of five enjoyed our stay at Lookaway Inn and would definitely love to stay again. We were in town 2 nights for a wedding and didn't have much free time, but we loved the charm of North Augusta. The room was nice and clean. I was worried that since it was an historic inn my children would not... More

A beautiful, charming inn - would be the perfect place for a gone-with-the-wind-remake. Both outside and innside- great focus on details, beautifully restored and kept in shape. Very friendly caretaker. We had a wonderful stay there! Rooms very clean, comfortable and big beds. Only breakfast could show more variety and be of better quality- at such a location I would...

Stayed here overnight on our trip to Atlanta. The location of the Lookaway Inn is spectacular, and the house has lots of old world charm and character. A lot of money has been spent on the interior, but the exterior leaves a little to be desired. The outstanding reception that you get from Sammy is exceptional. The highlight of the... More
