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!!!
- 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
