The Partridge Inn Augusta – A Great Adventure Hub
We recently took a trip to Augusta and stayed at this historic inn. It is as beautiful as it is comfortable, and it’s no wonder why. This hotel is centrally located, with a convenient travel time to just about everything you’d ever want to see or do in the Augusta area. Disclosure: I was hosted by The Partridge Inn for my review, but all opinions are my own and never influenced.
The History of the Hotel
The inn had its beginnings as a two-story house built in 1816. It originally belonged to governor of Georgia and one of the state’s three signers of the Declaration of Independence, George Walton. In 1836, it was used as the private residence known as Three Oaks for the Meigs family. Then, in 1892, New York hotelier, Morris Partridge bought the property as a small hotel.
The Great Depression hurt the hotel, with various owners over the next three decades. By the 60’s through the 70’s, it was a converted dwelling for long term residents.
However, in the late 80’s The Partridge Inn reopened, fully renovated and a historic landmark. Since then, this beautiful hotel within the Summerville Historic District has been going strong as THE place to stay in Augusta. Fun fact: It’s also listed as one of the twelve most haunted places in the south by Southern Living magazine. But we didn’t see any ghosts.
The lobby will wow you with its grand appearance and what you should expect throughout The Partridge Inn. The modern touches of stylish furniture and beautiful elements of decor will surely leave a great first impression.
We were pleasantly surprised with the luxurious feel of the rooms, considering the age of the hotel. We slept in some amazing beds – soft but not too soft. The room and bathroom made us feel pampered with their updated finishes and modern decor but still keeping the historic charm. It was a great way to relax after a long day of seeing the sights of the area. At night, we enjoyed watching movies on the 42 inch screen television.
Although we were not able to enjoy their fabulous serene pool, it did not stop us from admiring and taking photos.
The Partridge Inn offers culinary dining options at their fabulous P.I. Bar & Grill. It was a beautiful night, so we decided to dine outside on their inviting and peaceful veranda enjoying our deliciously prepared meals. For appetizers, my favorite was the tasty Red Velvet Waffles and Chicken with such a delightful presentation.
For dinner, I enjoyed the Salmon and Grits paired nicely with the broccoli florets.
The Mojitos were also sure to please. P.I. Bar & Grill does cater to large events, parties, and weddings, so this would be a great restaurant to consider.
