We stayed here for the first time in April 2008 when we attended the Masters. It was a little bit of a drive but two of us went to Augusta and two of them went to Atlanta. It was perfect. My wife and I stayed in the White Room the first time and absolutely loved it. The service is great....the food is wonderful.
Fast forward to September 2012 and we found a reason to come back. We attended a UGA football game and stayed in the Asian room. And again, we loved it. We were even fortunate enough to have their creme brulee french toast on the Sunday morning before leaving. Whether you want to sit on the porch, walk the property or enjoy some relaxation, the staff are sure to make sure you get what you need.
Can't wait to go back again.
- 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
