A Delicious Gem in Asheville

4.6 on March 31, 2015

I found the Abbington Green B&B after combing through online reviews and our two night March stay was just as great as I hoped it would be. This lovely large property sits tucked back in the gorgeous residential district of Montford in Asheville, a hop skip and a jump from downtown Asheville and a ten minute drive to the Biltmore Estate. The Abbington is owned and operated by the exceptionally classy Nick and his kind partner Steve who welcome you with a smile and open arms. Owning a B&B has been a dream of Nick's for years and it shows in every detail he gives painstaking attention to. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Nick and the joy and beauty that he embodies every day in this home/business. The welcoming atmosphere, happy hour/social hour time to sit and mingle, and the gorgeous porches make you not want to leave the property! As an enormous bonus, Nick and his staff are phenomenal cooks and not only are the breakfasts large and deliciously filling, but the additional beverage options include things like organic pressed juces. Nick now offers Saturday cooking classes which given how delicious his breakfasts are, are sure to be even more popular going forward. In short I loved it here and cannot wait to return some day. And my husband, a penny-pincher, agreed that this experience was well worth the price, hah!


One Night in Asheville

4.8 on March 23, 2015

Everything was absolutely wonderful about our stay. Nick greeted us right away and welcomed us to the Inn. After getting us settled, he brought up a wine and cheese plate. The room, St. James, was beautiful. The bathroom was full-size and the jacuzzi tub was great. They did all the little things right - robes, bath salts. I can't say enough good things about Nick. He was able to provide restaurant suggestions and where to go antiquing the next day. Our breakfast was so delicious. Can't wait to have an opportunity to stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay with us at Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn! You stayed in one of my favorite rooms, St. James's Park. I'm always happy to give suggestions about antique stores, restaurants or places to visit in Asheville. It is a pleasure for me to get to introduce our city to our guests. We look forward to your next visit with us!--Nick


We will be back!

Abbington Green B & B is a real gem in Asheville! It's about a 15 minute walk from downtown, yet tucked away in this beautiful, historic neighborhood. The rooms are lush in their decor and the bathrooms are all updated and quite upscale. We stayed in the Grosvenor Square suite and it even had a flat screen tv in the bathroom! The towels are so plush...a definite plus! I think the best part of our stay was the hospitality and attention to detail from the owners and staff. They were so attentive to catering to our food sensitivities and never felt left out from the breakfast. My husband and I tend to stay at B & B during our travels and we are foodies. We both agree that the breakfast here was one of the best we've experienced! The owners use quality and organic ingredients and support their local producers! On our way out, I noticed that the owner had a "special gift" for each female guest (amazing lavender soap). If you appreciate attention to detail and quality, you will not be disappointed!!

Innkeeper Response
We are very fortunate to call the historic neighborhood of Montford home--some of the houses date back to the late 1800s, and since 1977 it has been on the National Register of Historic Places, I love getting the chance to share it with our guests...and you are right-downtown is just a short walk away. Walking the neighborhood and the local trails is something that I like to recommend to our guests, and there are many upcoming events happening, from music to art to theater. I am glad that you enjoyed your suite and our breakfasts. Specialty cooking for our guests is all a part of hoping that you feel at home here at Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn. The soaps that you mentioned are made by a NC firm and we think that they smell wonderful. We like the idea that our guests bring a little piece of our home back to theirs! We hope to see you all again soon.--Nick


Very warm hospitality. Outstanding service.

5 on March 04, 2015

I stayed there for a night and wish I had more time to stay. It is a very cozy place, located close to downtown Asheville. The owners are very friendly. The happy hour and breakfast were outstanding. All food is homemade with high quality ingredients.  Strongly recommended.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us here at Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn, and we hope that your one night with us has tempted you to come back and stay longer next time you are here in Asheville! I'm glad that you were able to participate in our Social Hour...and am pleased that you enjoyed our homemade, 2 course breakfast. We are very proud to use organic and fresh ingredients in our cooking, and look forward to moving the herb garden outside again this Spring. Many thanks for your stay, and we look forward to the next time.--Nick


Awesome B & B in Asheville, NC!

5 on March 03, 2015

We visited Abbington Green for my birthday weekend. Not only was everything perfect, Nick and the staff even had a birthday card waiting for me upon arrival:))

Innkeeper Response
We're honored that people choose us to spend special days like birthdays with us! We are honored and it's fun to get to celebrate with our guests. We hope that you had a terrific birthday with us, and truly hope to see you again soon.--Nick


Great stay

5 on March 03, 2015

The owner is wonderful. He took time to learn the circumstances of our stay and reflected that in several conversations that we had. The home is beautiful, it is very well maintained and decorated with much love. Our room was wonderful. The decor was, again, top notch and we had our own bathroom with jacuzzi tub! The welcome hour was full of wine and cheeses local to Asheville. The breakfast was made with love. We had homemade French toast, orange syrup and maple French toast. We also enjoyed organic fruit and homemade Lavendar bread. This was definitely a treat and we will be back on our return trip to Asheville

Innkeeper Response
I enjoy getting to chat with our guests and getting to know a little about them. Our 5pm Social Hour allows me to get to know our guests, hear about what they've been up to during the day and also to introduce them to some of the delicious and local North Carolina cheeses from the NC Cheese Trail. Thanks for mentioning the Lavendar Bread...it was a newer recipe that we've been trying, and we think it is very nice! Many thanks for your stay here at Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn, and we look forward to the next time you are able to visit.--Nick


Fabulous

3.8 on February 21, 2015

Our stay at Abbington Green was fabulous! Nick and Steve are exceptional hosts. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. We appreciated the attention to details, from the chocolate hearts lying on our bed for our wedding anniversary to the ultra soft bathrobes and everything in-between. My personal favorite surprise was the lip balm! The evening hors d' oeuvres were yummy and the other guests were entertaining. In the morning we didn’t want to get out of bed for breakfast, but we were happy we did because breakfast was delicious and the service (Nick, Steve, and Bradshaw) was exceptional. We will be back.

Innkeeper Response
One of our favorite things is when our guests come to spend a holiday like Valentine's Day or and event like an anniversary with us! It lets us be a part of your happy celebration. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and our amenities...we order our bath products from a North Carolina company and I think that they are really special. I am glad that you mentioned the lip balm...it really is terrific and one of my favorite thing.! I know it is a small thing, but it really is good! Breakfast is something not to miss, so I'm happy that you enjoyed it, 2 courses of fresh and organic goodness to start your day. We hope you come to stay again with us soon, don't wait a year until your next anniversary!--Nick


BETTER THAN HOME

4.4 on February 09, 2015

Nick is a great host.We stayed in the Kensington Garden room.The bathroom had a built in wall heater, fantastic shower head and soft water.Everything was clean,the bed was comfortable and plenty of natural light.Breakfast was excellent and served by knowledgeable staff.You could easily skip lunch after a breakfast like that.As an added bonus Nick served wine at 5pm with appetizers that offered a comfortable environment to interact with other guests.He also put out several types of homemade cookies for night time snaking.We will be back.

Innkeeper Response
The cookies and Bradshaw's baked treats have been very popular, and I am glad you agree. And, the water at the Inn is something we are very proud of--a total filtration system is what makes it delicious. No need to buy bottled water when you stay here at Abbington Green! Kensington Garden is a gorgeous room and one of my favorites. Come back again soon!--Nick


A wonderful place to unwind...

4.2 on February 07, 2015

A truly memorable weekend celebrating a 60th birthday! From the moment we saw the beautifully maintained inn as we pulled on we knew we were in for a treat. Our innkeeper Nick greeted us in the foyer and gave a brief history oh the inn. We arrived at cocktail time and so glad... Many assorted treats prepared by Nick including an assortment of wines and other beverage were delicious. We were given a tour and taken to our beautifully appointed room complete with a working fireplace (included in each room!). Soft towels and sheets and we slept like babies. The real surprise was the in room massage I purchased for my partner... "The best massage I ever had" she delightedly announced afterward. If course the best was yet to come at breakfast time. Wonderfully well prepared orange infused French toast, coffee prepared to our liking and delicious locally -prepared jellies and freshly made croissants made a meal that held won us over. We shall return to this enchanting inn as often as we can! Thank you to the entire staff!

Innkeeper Response
Social Hour was the perfect time to arrive and it was a lot of fun, getting to know you both, playing the piano and having some local, organic cheeses to sample and to relax for a bit! I am so happy that you enjoyed some of the best our Inn has to offer--our French Toast is truly a guest favorite and you got to try out our new towels! Arranging the in-room massage was no problem and is a really great way to treat a loved one! We definitely look forward to your next visit!--Nick


Perfect night away!

5 on January 29, 2015

My husband and I wanted to come to Asheville for a weekend get away and Abbington Green was the perfect place! The rooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. Nick made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed getting to know him during the social hour. What makes this bed and breakfast so special are all of the small touches that come with your stay-fresh baked cookies, coffee and drinks available 24/7, plush robes, elegant bedrooms and bathrooms, wonderful bath products, organic (and amazingly delicious) breakfasts, and Nick's willingness to help you with anything you may need-he even printed out directions to the restaurant that we were headed to for dinner! Abbington Green is the perfect Bed and Breakfast if you are looking for a romantic, special, one-of-a-kind place to stay! This will be the only place we stay when we come to Asheville.

Innkeeper Response
I'm happy that you enjoyed your get-away and your time with us at Abbington Green. It was nice getting to spend time with you at Social Hour, and I appreciate that you noticed some of the things we do here at the Inn...we really do want you to feel like you are at home in our home! You mentioned coming back to Asheville someday. We hope that it is soon!--Nic
