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...

My wife and I spent our wedding night here a decade or so ago, before continuing on a short wedding trip; we had such a wonderful experience we've returned on our anniversary every year, and stayed once or twice in between anniversaries each year as well. So it was a special delight to learn that ASHFORD MANOR was the first...

Gracious, charming, beautiful! Our stay at Ashford Manor and the wedding of our son and daughter-in-law there were wonderful. Our rooms were lovely, breakfasts were fabulous, the grounds are so nice. It was the perfect setting for the wedding of our son and daughter-in-law. We have only superlatives! Alan and Sandy Paige

If you love gardens and older homes, Ashford Manor is definitely the place to go! Extremely charming we loved our stay at the Cottage Hideaway Suite! The attention to detail in decor was charming, and the room was clean and tidy. Their grounds are beautiful to stroll through, with lovely sculptures, and beautiful flowers! Across the street you have plenty...

We spent two lovely days and nights at the Ashford Manor Bed and Breakfast in Watkinsville, GA. We enjoyed the Cottage Gallery immensely with its unusual collection of artwork and bric-a-brac. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the rooms large enough for our friends whom we were visiting to come by. When in Middle Georgia, do yourself a favor and...

Not only is the manor itself gorgeous and full of character, but the owners were wonderful people who helped me out of a bind when I needed to get into Athens and realized that there was no local taxi service. They were so kind and full of good advice, and they helped me to get where I needed to go....

Thank you for your kind words, and reflections on our service. There is no cab company in our little town (9 miles south of Athens). The cab service in Athens is often an option for our visitors, but subject to availability, time-frame and sometimes cost. For our 16 years we have developed several creative means of overcoming this little inconvenience,...

What a great place. Enjoyed meeting new friends on the huge front porch. Stopped for complementary wine in the beautiful 19th century parlor on the way to our room. Its theme was Asian and was really well appointed. We liked the mix of new amneities with original objects like the claw foot tub and sink fixtures. It was our anniversay...

It has been my experience that MOST places do NOT live up to their actual website description. Ashford Manor exceeds all expectations! This place is simply amazing, yet eccentric, eclectic, gorgeous, welcoming and just an overall spectacular surprise. Hosts Mario and Dave go 'over and above' the call of duty to make you feel welcomed. Not only is the historic...

I just spent 4 nights at the Ashford Manor and was totally charmed the entire time. The house was breathtakingly beautiful as were the gardens. The antiques were fantastic. This was hands down the best run place I've ever seen. There was absolutely no detail left unattended. I wanted for absolutely nothing. Everything had been planned out with the utmost...

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
