I had the good fortune to stay at Ashford Manor Bed and Breakfast while attending a wedding in June. As a wedding site, the grounds could not have been more perfect and created a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony and the pictures that will bring smiles at each and every look. The day before the wedding and the one after gave me time to experience everything that a first-rate bed and breakfast should offer but rarely do. The common rooms and my room, The English Room, combined elegance and comfort with special touches wherever I looked. The breakfasts were a true dining experience with delicious food plated with exquisite mastery. All of the Ashford Manor people were genial hosts whose main goal was to make each guest's visit feel welcoming, personal, and valued. They succeeded.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Ashford Manor and our new facility Ashford On Main are available for weddings, reunions, business meetings, retreats, bridal showers and more! ... more less
