Ashford Manor Bed & Breakfast
Just 15 minutes south of Athens, this family-owned country estate is surrounded by lush gardens filled with magnolias and redbuds. The 1893 Victorian manor house hosts up to 18 overnight guests in seven rooms, each individually designed according to a specific theme. For instance, the Asian room contains a shoji screen and silk kimonos, while the Safari room includes a zebra-print rug, a camel-statue nightstand, and a huge map of the world covering one wall. Downstairs, the common rooms have 10 glass doorways that open onto a wraparound porch facing the lawn, which often hosts concerts, weddings, and Shakespeare performances.
Room to Book:
If privacy is a top priority, be sure to request a room with its own separate entrance.
For dinner, walk to the nearby Chops & Hops restaurant, known for its burgers and 70-plus beers from across the globe.
