“Again Please!”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

We arrived in the afternoon and the owner met us at the front door. From this point on we were embraced by Ashford Manor. The room was elegant and comfortable. The grounds, even though it was in the middle of winter, were beautiful. We are already planning a return trip in the spring to see the lawn in its full glory. Once we were settled, we never saw another soul til the next morning. It was quiet and private. We walked the grounds, took pictures and strolled across the street to chops n hops for a great dinner. Our continental breakfast was delivered precisely at the time requested the next morning and the pampering continued. Exactly what a superior B and B should be!

Room Tip: We stayed on 1st floor. (Garden room) There was noise from the street, but the room had a sound mach...

This year, our third at Ashford Manor, we had 14 women meet at the Manor at 4pm for cocktails. A couple of us went a little early to pop the turkey in the oven so the house would smell good when the ladies showed up. We had a great Pot Luck dinner, sat around and talked and talked and talked. About half the group didn't know everyone, so lots of new friendships were formed. Dave and Mario made an OUTRAGEOUS breakfast for us all; they even accommodated our friend who lives gluten-free. We all said that the time went by way too quickly. We'll be back next year!!!

Room Tip: If you like waking up in a dark room with a jacuzzi waiting for you, try the Penthouse.

I spent one night here recently and enjoyed it very much. The owners are very friendly, yet unobtrusive. They live in an adjacent house, so it felt very private in the B & B. The rooms are decorated in varied themes, and are comfortable and beautiful. The location is great, and the breakfast was really scrumptious!

Pretty home and laid back environment in a pleasant part of the deep South. Breakfast was exactly what we hoped for (good food but enabled us to stay on our healthy eating plan). We definitely plan to go to Ashford Manor again.

I wanted to stay longer. Elegantly quirky and entirely enjoyable. This historic home has been made into something much more than just a period restoration. The owners seemed genuinely friendly and interested in making this a great place to stay. Breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious. This is exactly what I want in a Bed and Breakfast. My husband liked it too, not too "frilly or fussy." There are also several restaurants just across the street so dinner was very convenient. Watkinsville is a pleasant small town and only about 10 miles from Athens GA.

Room Tip: The Cottage Gallery Suite is decorated in a quirky fun way that makes you want to smile. Lots of art...

We happened on Ashford Manor by accident while looking for a place in the north Georgia mountains for the weekend. What a stroke of luck! The entire facility was wonderful (except the pillows!) and we felt very welcome. But breakfast! Creme' Brulee' French toast! That's all I can say without getting in the car and driving back for another night!

Room Tip: Garden Room need better pillows!!!

My girlfriend and I made a return to Ashford Manor, a B&B in Watkinsville, GA about an hour away from Atlanta and just as each previous time we were overwhelmed with the property and area. This is truly the best B&B that we have ever stayed at and we have stayed at many! The house is decorated so elegantly with lots of antiques. The house is always peaceful and welcoming and we always feel relaxed and welcome. Dave and Mario, the Owners of the house are as gracious and kind as they can be, they always ask if we need anything and treat us more like visiting family than paying guests. Besides the variously themed bedrooms our favorite room is the sitting room where we can spend hours enjoying the music in the background and lots of conversation. The room is decorated with many antiques but also has some unusual but interesting pieces and it has a nice and comfortable lived in feeling to it that just seems to invite you in for a chance to sit down and relax. Then in the morning, it is the icing on the cake, an outstanding breakfast which is cooked right on site and it never disappoints, plus you can be served breakfast in your room or go to the dining room and have a table to yourself, we like this much better than at most B&B's where you are crowded around a table with people you have never met. We do quite a bit of traveling and we cannot think of a place that we would want to visit more than Ashford Manor. Even though it is only a little bit over an hour from where we live each time we go it is like leaving all of the hustle and bustle behind a beautiful, romantic place to go to and recharge our batteries. Go and try it at least once, you will not be disappointed!

We like to think of ourselves as the best kept secret in Georgia. The five acre Ashford Estate, overlooking Watkinsville's venerable Main Street, had been in the same family for over 100 years. Completely surrounded and secluded by a border of magnolias, red buds and pines, the 1893 Victorian manor house, cottage, gazebo and four acres of landscaped gardens all terrace down to a pool and open woods and creek beyond. We are walking distance to antique shops and art galleries of local fine and folk art talent.
