My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend for one night. We planned a last minute trip to Augusta to visit the wineries on a Saturday afternoon. We were unsure whether we would even be able to find accommodations on such short notice, but it is apparently the off season, and the house was mostly vacant. We had originally booked...

Out trip to H.S. Clay House was amazing. The decor is outstanding and breakfast was amazing. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and engaged us in delightful conversation over breakfast. They make you feel as if you have known them for years.

Wow! What a magical place to just go and get away from all the shenanigans of the world. From the very moment of meeting Leigh at the door with her pleasant hospitality and welcoming spirit to sadly packing up and taking a cookie for the road. This B&B is a hidden gem that my husband and I plan to visit...

Very genuine and hospitable. Delicious breakfast!! Pool and garden provide a relaxing outdoor atmosphere. Rooms are all decorated with antiques that provide visual appeal. B&B is within walking distance of a couple wineries and restaurants. The only downside is shared bathrooms.
