Description

Circa 1908. Experience a bit of Britain only half-a-mile from downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The historic home surrounded by mature trees has been preserved to award-winning quality. A gardener’s delight, the inn features a boxwood parterre with a tiered fountain, an Oriental garden with a path of stepping stones, and an informal shade garden. One of the common rooms offer a solid brass chandelier and the sun shines through original windows to light an English décor. Highlights of the eight guest rooms include king-size beds, whirlpool tubs, and working fireplaces. True luxury can be found in the five-room Eaton Square Suite with a private entry, furnished porch, and kitchen with china and crystal. Two suites are dog-friendly. Home-grown herbs and local, organic ingredients are used in the daily breakfast that feels more like a lovely brunch with friends. Sit at one of two large tables beside the handmade oak mantel in the dining room.

Abbington Green is tops!

The Abbington Green is located in historic Montford which is walkable distance of downtown Asheville. Upon arrival, Nick had a welcoming gift for us since we were on our honeymoon. The chocolate was wonderful but the thought behind it made us feel special. The room, bathroom and common areas were decorated very well. In fact each breakfast had a different table setting and they all were first class. The breakfast for the 3 mornings we had were very good. He knew who had what preference or food allergy so he was prepared for having an alternative if necessary. Nick and staff knew the local restaurants to help guide you thru the plethora of restaurants in Asheville. Oh, when you stay at Abbington Green, make sure you are there for happy hour with the wine and cheese selections plus an extra appetizer Nick has made. All in all, I would go back in an instant and of course recommend Abbington Green to everyone.
