Washington Plantation at twilight

This fine old bed and breakfast inn (one of our guests, from Ireland, said "It's more like a boutique hotel!") 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 thorough restoration in 2004 has brought Washington Plantation back to its full glory.  Through the years, it has been the scene of festive weddings, reunions and 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 huge magnolias, immense oaks, dogwood, pecan, hickory, elm and crape myrtle, have served as the backdrop of history. 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.

W hat 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. Crystal and brass chandeliers appear in every room. Irish crystal glassware, 1000-count Egyptian cotton sheets, gas fireplaces and the finest amenities grace the bedrooms.

Washington Plantation does not exist in a vacuum. Washington, Georgia boasts more antebellum homes and buildings than any other city in Georgia excepting Savannah. Union General William Tecumseh Sherman bypassed Washington on his famous (or infamous, depending which side you were on) March to the Sea after the fall of Atlanta. A local Union supporter and friend of Sherman’s convinced the General to spare the town, and the result is the city you can visit today, a jewel of the Antebellum South.

Washington Plantation, with its seven acres of landscaped grounds and spacious rooms, is an ideal place to host your most festive events. We have a variety of rates, depending on the size of your party and the time of year.

Seven acres of mature trees and lawns, ample space for tents and pavillions, broad verandas and lavish indoor public areas make Washington Plantation an ideal venue for the Big Day. Area wedding professionals (we've got a good list) will work with you and us to create an unforgettable Wedding Day for you. Washington Plantation offers a variety of packages to suit your needs, from smaller indoor affairs, to lavish outdoor events for up to four hundred.
