Loved Aiken and our Apartment !

  • 5 of 5

We came into Aiken for a few days of golf and to attend a practice round at The Masters. 4 of us stayed at this great apartment for 4 nights. Its even nicer than the pictures - lots of room - everything you need is there and location is perfect for walking around to restaurants and getting a cocktail. Very close to Aiken Golf Club which was a great course to play... we also played the River Golf Club. The Casa Bella Italian restaurant was FANTASTIC, highly recommend. I can't say enough positive things about our accommodation - we knew it was going to be great...it was better than that!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

I met friends here. We were looking for a central location between their homes in NC and mine in GA. This was perfect. Lovely, great location, kitchen so we could cook, close to great restaurants when we didn't want to cook. We can't wait to go back!!

Map

Car: not necessary

Aiken, 'a place for a splendid time to be had' was the town's reputation a century ago and still reigns true today! Historically, Aiken was a retreat for Charlestonians escaping malaria but also became a popular Winter Colony attracting people from the north especially during their harsh winter months.

Aiken became known as a sports haven as wealthy horse enthusiasts brought their animals for pleasure and training building grandiose cottages and stables that survive today. Aiken remains a great escape offering a rich heritage, beautiful tree lined streets, charm, hospitality and gracious living.
