If you want to get the full historic feel of North Augusta, stay in one of its landmark residences. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Lookaway Inn is a Beaux Arts-style estate built in 1898 for Walter Jackson, who co-founded North Augusta with his brother, James. The most distinctive feature of the home is its monumental, two-story portico with Ionic columns and a frieze festooned with garlands. The inn offers 15 large bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. Several of the rooms have screened-in porches or private screened-in verandas.
Those who prefer more contemporary lodging also will find several great options, including Crowne Plaza in the new Riverside Village. This modern hotel offer easy access to the North Augusta Greeneway and a variety of restaurants and shops in the new SRP Park. Located within the hotel are the award-winning Salt + Marrow Restaurant and Jackson’s Bluff Rooftop Bar. Oh, and Fido is welcome, too!
