Where do you live?

Fabulous stay in this charming Aiken village slice of history.

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved, loved the location, within easy walking distance of downtown Aiken. The owner, Bill gave us the most thorough orientation to the property, the village of Aiken, and the best of the area. We enjoyed the backyard patio for wine and hors d'ouevres, snuggling by the fireplace in the evening, and the super comfortable bed. The cottage was decorated to the finest detail. We will definitely return!
