The Planters Inn, a classic 3,200+ SF Greek Revival on 1.13 acres just within Historic Washington’s downtown district, has been welcoming guests to “sit and stay awhile” since 1828. One of Washington’s earliest guest quarters, the Planters Inn originally hosted those arriving by train at the depot just around the corner, then continued its hospitality as a Bed & Breakfast/Guest Quarters with 5 Bedrooms and 4 Full Bathrooms in the decades after.
Ascending to the upper level, the central stairway curves before resting at a small landing then forking off to the front and rear of the home. A large partially glass door at the front of the hallway allows natural light to flood in and provides access to the balcony overlooking the porches and avenue below. Similar to the ground-level, the soaring ceiling heights of the Greek Revival style can be found in the front bedrooms while the rear bedrooms feature the more modest ceiling heights of the Federal/Georgian architectural era in which the Planters Inn was originally constructed. Both large front bedrooms feature fireplaces and closets, along with doors connecting to both the hallway and rear bedrooms.
The two upper-level full bathrooms with clawfoot tubs are off of the hallway just beyond the stairwell between the rear bedrooms. The immediate grounds surrounding the Planters Inn are typical of a spacious historic in-town lot with a small well just outside of the back door. Beyond the privacy plantings at the rear of the yard, the property opens up to a pasture that runs the depth of the block and fronts the street behind it. Totaling well over an acre, there are plenty of options to expand the immediate yard for more recreation, shift the primary entrance to the rear of the property, or engage in small-scale agricultural uses.
After one renovation to the Planters Inn around 1880, the local newspaper gushed, “the large glass windows and snow white appearance of the house are quite pleasant to the eye.” Now, available after several decades of private ownership and just as impressive as ever, this unique piece of local history awaits its next chapter!
