Winter at Washington Plantation
Washington, Georgia's Finest B&B
his fine old bed and breakfast inn (one of our guests, from Ireland, said "It's more like a boutique hotel!") should be your home base as you explore beautiful and historic Washington, Georgia. It began life in 1828 as a two over two plain-style farmhouse.
Over the years, as the prosperity of Washington, Georgia, and the home’s owners, waxed and waned, the house grew into its present superb example of Greek Revival architecture.
The wealth was here: at one point, the house ruled over more than three thousand acres.
A recent thorough restoration has brought Washington Plantation back to its full happy glory. Through the years, it has been the scene of festive Plantation weddings (and quieter elopements), reunions and just plain parties. It seems that the whole population of town has fond memories of joyous occasions at Washington Plantation. Hospitality is built in.
The seven acres of grounds, planted with magnolias, immense oaks, dogwood, pecan, hickory, elm, camellias and crape myrtle, have served as the backdrop of Southern history. Both Union and Confederate armies camped here in 1865. The beauty and tranquility of the land, and the house’s setting at the top of a gentle knoll where the breeze always blows, stand as testimony to the eye of Daniel Chandler, the first builder at Washington Plantation.
What you will find here will transport you back to the days when cotton was king and the cotton planter an aristocrat. The house is furnished with period antiques and fine reproductions. The breakfast china is Wedgwood or Lennox. The table silver is sterling. The window treatments are hand-made and luxurious.
All Washington Plantation bedrooms have crystal and brass chandeliers, Irish crystal glassware, 1000-count Egyptian cotton sheets, gas fireplaces and the finest bathroom amenities That’s the way a planter would greet his guests, and that’s what’s in store for you at Washington Plantation.Please take a few moments to tour the house and grounds via this site, then come and join us to experience the planter’s life when cotton was king. Remember, we're elegant, but not stuffy!
