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!

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 of options for dining out, cafe's and coffee shops! We loved meeting Dave and Mario, and they were extremely welcoming! Overall a charming experience and we will be back!

Room Tip: Suites are perfect for privacy!

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 book your stay with Ashford Manor B&B, even if it's a little out of the way. Watkinsville is a delightful town.

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. A very reassuring stay for a woman traveling on her own!

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, even driving guests ourselves to destinations, or arranging private car services that are at our exclusive disposal. Our private 5-acre estate provides tranquil security, at the center of a small, historic town with shops, restaurants, galleries, within walking distance. Just ask, should you feel the need or necessity to travel outside our bit of Heaven. We will see that you get to your destination and back, 'home'. But a slight distance from busy Athens, our mission is comfort, service and beauty. Best wishes from the staff at Ashford Manor, and hopefully a speedy return.

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 so it was a delightful way to celebrate. The big country breakfast was fantastic, thanks to Mario. You can't go wrong here. We live in Watkinsville but will stay here many more times in the future.

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 house gorgeous, but the gardens are a great joy to walk through! It has been a very long time since I've enjoyed an experience at a B & B like I enjoyed mine this week. I would highly recommend Ashford Manor B & B to anyone. It is also a fabulous treat to have your own divine bathroom in each unique room. Congratulations...'Well Done' to Mario and Dave for their superb efforts!

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 care. The hosts Mario, Dave and Patrice were wonderful and made me feel comfortable and at home. I asked if I could possibly bring my son's dog to spend the day with me and they were happy to let me. I went to get her and returned less than 20 minutes later to find a beautiful dog bed in my room! This B&B is worth the trip just to hang out for the weekend. Darling little town to explore also. I wish I could rank them over a 5! The bed was comfortable and luxurious.
