Elegant Hotel in Historical Town Square
Sitting on Courthouse Square in historical downtown Washington, Georgia, The Fitzpatrick Hotel exudes the stately elegance of small-town life in the early 20th century. Originally constructed in 1898 and restored in 2004, the Victorian-style bed and breakfast faces the square with a terra-cotta exterior accented by stained-glass windows and wrought-iron balconies. Inside, a honey color palette marks the long, narrow entrance hall, where antique velvet sofas and ornate wooden arches emanate turn-of-the-century class.
The three-story hotel’s deluxe standard rooms lend themselves to intimate and relaxed overnight stays through gentleman's chairs, upholstered ottomans, and other Victorian period furnishings resting on hardwood floors. You can start the morning with a complimentary continental breakfast in the downstairs restaurant.
Washington, Georgia: Civil-War City with Small-Town Charm
The first city to be named after George Washington (about 18 years before Washington, DC), the antebellum community of Washington charms with Victorian and colonial homes. Built in 1785, the Callaway Plantation is a living museum about 7 miles from the hotel, housing many of its original 18th-century artifacts. Visitors can tour the homes, barns, outbuildings, and the cemetery on its 3,000-acre cotton plantation, featuring an unaltered Great Manor house, a Greek Revival–style mansion furnished with 150-year-old doors. A hewn-log cabin, the Callaway Plantation's oldest building, contains original domestic and agricultural tools, primitive furniture, and a large fireplace.
A leisurely 10-minute stroll from The Fitzpatrick brings visitors to Robert Toombs House, once home to one of Washington's most powerful and notorious characters. A state legislator and a U.S. congressman from the late 1830s through 1860s, Robert Toombs ardently advocated Georgia's secession from the Union on the eve of the Civil War. Visitors can tour Toombs’s two-story colonial home and sprawling grounds after viewing a short film recounting the life and turbulent times of its former owner.
