“Great Escape and Wonderful Place”
Reviewed May 16, 2008

Great experience. We get together with friends every year to see an SEC game hosted by the different schools in the conference. This year was the Old Miss vs Georgia game. At the Ashford Manor Bed and Breakfast we had a great experience, very pleasant and relaxing. The rooms are quite eccentric but the breakfasts in the garden was great. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to get away.

We stayed at Ashford Manor for the GA vs AU game. Watkinsville is less than 10 miles from Athens. Ashford Manor is an old home and yes the owners have eccentric decorating taste. However the accommodations are well appointed i.e. high thread count linens, nice towels & toiletries, bottled water, evening drinks, mini refrig….
It is located across the street from great shopping and 3 restaurants (see review on Maison Blu). The best part of the stay is the gourmet breakfasts with fresh fruit and fine coffee. We also felt very safe staying here unlike past B&B experiences. The entire weekend was a treat despite our team losing – we defiantly want to try and return. We came away feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Also Great Price!!!

Ashford Manor is a very old house that has been decorated with items from various garage sales. If you have ever been to a resort style bed and breakfast before, you will be a bit disappointed at Ashford Manor. The service is excellent and the price is great. However, there's a "No Swimming" sign in front of the swimming pool (go figure), eclectic decorating and lots of narrow stairs to climb. The steps creek with every step and you get two lovely 13" televisions. The house does NOT have central air conditioning, so don't be alarmed by the window units. The accomodations were fine for a short trip. However, I probably won't return.

  • Liked — The Friendly People
  • Disliked — The decor, the Pool that didn't allow swimming, the food, the room

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
