Great design

Flanked by grand white pillars and big oak trees, The Willcox has historic southern charm enough to satisfy Scarlett O’Hara. Each of the 22 guest quarters are classic but never fussy, with four-poster beds, stitched floral pillows, and double-height paned windows framed by painted wood plantation shutters. The main activity for Willcox guests is typically horse-related, as Aiken has been a destination for all things equestrian for more than 100 years. After steeplechasing or harness racing, dine on local applewood-smoked bacon and creamed corn, as well as greens grown in the chef’s on-site garden. A food truck also delivers dishes to guests on the go, whether they’re heading out on a foxhunt or whiling away an afternoon on one of Aiken’s polo fields or golf courses.
