First settled in the mid 1800's, Hotel Faust was designed by the famous architect Alfred Giles in 1800. It started out as The Ingenhuett Hotel, but hey...no one can say or spell Ingenhuett, and so it was renamed Hotel Faust in the early 1900's when the Fausts became part of the Ingenhuett family. Ask us about Mrs. Faust's ghost that still visits our hotel.

Hotel Faust, a historic landmark built by noted architect Alfred Giles in 1880. The main building is the original two-story hotel that once welcomed stagecoaches. The property has been extensively renovated, but its deep porches, outfitted with rocking chairs and bikes, provide the same simple pleasures enjoyed a century ago. - Southern Living
