Flanked by grand white pillars and big oak trees, The Willcox is filled with historic southern charm. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into Scarlett O’Hara’s own bedroom in each of the 22 guest quarters, thanks to four-poster beds, stitched floral pillows, and double-height paned windows framed in painted wood shutters. The main activity for Willcox guests is typically horse-related, as Aiken has served as the training ground 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 on one of Aiken’s polo fields or golf courses, or heading out on a foxhunt.

Room to Book:

For high ceilings and deep soaking tubs, opt for a King Premium room. Of those, No. 208 is the largest.

Insider Tip:

Chilly night? Request a cashmere-covered hot water bottle at turndown.
