Originally Known as

woodlawn plantation

Circa 1852


Picture yourself living on this gorgeous, historical antebellum property. Built in 1852 by Miles Walker Lewis, the Washington Grass Inn was originally named "Woodlawn". It was a 1,500 acre self-sustaining cotton plantation. One of it's "claims to fame" was Alexander Stephens (Vice President of the Confederacy) visiting Woodlawn on numerous occasions, as he was a dedicated friend of the Lewis family. The surrounding 1,500 acres is still owned by the Lewis family, with the exception of the 9 acres that is now known as "The Washington Grass Inn on Woodlawn Plantation".


The Washington Grass Inn welcomes you to experience the gracious southern past. The property is situated in historic Greensboro, Georgia, just about an hour east of Atlanta, south of Athens and west of Augusta and only 3 miles south of Interstate I-20.


The property boasts a Victorian-style, gracefully-curved Front Porch, Entry Foyer with Main Parlour, Formal Dining Room, Gentleman's Parlour/Billiard Room, Master Suite with Jacuzzi tub and Full Bath on main level, Sun Porch, Chef's Kitchen with granite island, farm sink and commercial appliances and Keeping Room. You'll find three additional Bedrooms, Sun Porch and Full Bath plus lots of attic storage upstairs.


There are additional historic out-buildings including a harp-roofed double Garage with upstairs storage and Greenhouse, original two-story Smokehouse, Summer Kitchen, 40x80 covered Pavilion with drop-down sides and finished Restrooms.


This property is the perfect site for family reunions, weddings, large parties and events . . . or simply as a private residence to enjoy forever.
