Ashford Manor Bed & Breakfast
5 Harden Hill Road
Watkinsville, GA 30677
It’s time to slip away from your hectic lifestyle and enjoy a little slice of heaven – right in the middle of rural Georgia. As the owner/operators of Ashford Manor, Dave and Mario will tell you, this is not your “grandma’s bed and breakfast.” Historic Ashford Manor is a 19th century home formerly owned by Georgia’s famous Ashford Family. Offering nine different suites, Ashford Manor sits on lush acres and manicured gardens in Downtown Watkinsville. Each day begins with breakfast and you will find out it really is the most important meal of the day. Ask Dave or Mario to whip up their famous Creme Brulee French toast, or try their farm fresh eggs hatched right on the property. Wash it down with some hot coffee or fresh-squeezed orange juice. Pastries from a local bakery top off one of the best breakfasts you will ever eat. When in Atlanta, Athens or Watkinsville, stop by Ashford Manor.
