We stayed here for 2 nights last weekend. It was truly one of the best B&B's we've stayed at (we've been staying in B&B's for 26 years, sometimes 2x a year). We booked the Garden Room, a beautiful and spacious room with a uniquely designed bathroom containing numerous antique mirrors. The owners Dave & Mario are very friendly and knowledgeable... More

Just spent two days at Ashford Manor Bed & Breakfast...this place is amazing! Truly a gem...a five acre estate on Main Street in the quaint town of Watkinsville, Georgia. Watkinsville is on the Antebellum Trail, where a love of the past and Southern hospitality are waiting. Believe me, Mario and Dave know how to serve up some fine Southern Hospitality!... More

The folks at the b&b were very friendly and helpful. The English Room where we stayed was very nice. The beds were very comfortable, individual a/c was appreciated on a hot July night. Decorations were beautiful. Breakfast was great! We will definitely consider revisiting with Dave and Mario. What triggered our stay in Watkinsville were the 3 covered bridges nearby... More

Dave S, Owner at Ashford Manor Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

These folks were a special delight. Yep, we are central to several historic covered bridges in the area. One just 10 minutes away. Aside from the very friendly folks that book here, they were inquisitive, engaging and informative. They taught us a great deal. We love when we learn about Georgia from our guests. Though we offer a great deal... More

What a lovely getaway at Ashford Manor! Dave and Schroder are the most gracious hosts. (Mario was out of town so we didn’t get to meet him.) The grounds are beautiful. The Inn is spectacular. Our room was so cozy and comfortable. Happy hour in the Parlor. Morning coffee on the Veranda and the most scrumptious breakfast prepared by Dave.... More

I stayed at Ashford Manor in May. It was very nice and a wonderful breakfast. Just a few miles from Athens and closer to the reunion I was attending. Each room is furnished to reflect the country it is named for and contains items the owners collected on their travels.

We love visiting the Ashford Manor, Dave, Mario and Schroder! We, as the majority of the reviews, think it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Breakfast is a must! What a delightful send off! As for the THREE negative reviews they've received....all you have to do is visit their website to see that this is... More

We had a refreshing respite at the Ashford Manor on our drive up to our mountain cabin. The trip from Florida is long, and with our dog, we thought it was best to make an overnight stop. So glad to find a B&B that would accommodate our little sidekick Rocky. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was so... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Ashford Manor B&B in April 2016 to celebrate our anniversary. The house was built in the 1890's which makes a great feel for a bed and breakfast. Both Dave and Mario made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. The rooms are nicely decorated and were very comfortable.... More

The hosts of this B & B display a true sense of a desire to make us feel comfortable and pampered. The details in the rooms and grounds have to be experienced to be appreciated. Wondering the grounds and the home was like staying in a museum. Wonderful retreat!

We stay in B&B's or small boutique hotels fairly frequently. Ashford Manor goes right to the top of that list for charm, elegance and friendliness. We were sadly only there for 1 night, but loved our stay so much that we are already planning another visit the next time we are in that area. My husband and I stayed in... More

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
