Lovely time at this Aiken, SC property
We are familiar with Aiken, having stayed there many times over the past nine years, but this time we wanted a different sort of accommodation so we chose this property. We loved it! Situated on Theresa's beautiful farm, it was very quiet and private, yet convenient to town. The "Pool House" is charming, nicely appointed and very well built. The entire property is extremely tidy, and the house was very clean. If you want to cook, the galley kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and other cooking essentials. We ran around so much during our stay we used the coffee maker and the microwave once or twice, but otherwise just stocked the fridge with cool drinks. Our stay coincided with very warm temps, so having our own pool could not be beat! We loved the low-key visits from our "loaner dogs", Pancho and Thelma, who stood in for our crew who were left at home. As horse people, it was nice to see the gorgeous horses, but not have to do the work! Theresa was a perfect hostess, very unobtrusive, but there if you needed anything. Most of the time we felt as if we were the only ones there, which was nice. A couple of things to bear in mind: the spiral staircase is quite narrow, so if you have infirmities this might not be the place for you. We were there at a very hot time, and if you are, too, get your A/C going as soon as you get in as the sleeping area is a loft so it takes a while to cool down in those challenging temps. In more moderate temps this might not be an issue. We loved it, and would definitely stay with Theresa again.
