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.


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!

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

Perfect

5 on January 15, 2015

Our stay was wonderful. This is a beautiful place with tremendous service. Our room was perfect and the breakfast was amazing. I would recommend this B&B to anyone. It was also my wife's birthday and they had a card for her and a small gift. Very special place.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for spending your wife's birthday with us! It really is an honor to get to celebrate special days with our guests, like birthdays or anniversaries. And...I am so glad that you enjoyed our breakfast. It is a joy for me to cook for our guests.


Outstanding customer service!

I called to get a bottle of Champagne for some dear friends staying at the Inn. Nick went out of his way to help me. Although the Inn doesn't have wine, Nick offered to go pick up a bottle I purchased at a local shop and place it in the room with a personalized note! Talk about customer service! Thanks, Nick!

Innkeeper Response
I was so happy to help! It was a pleasure meeting and having your friends stay with us.


Wonderful stay!

5 on December 22, 2014

Abbington Green is an amazing place to stay. My husband and I stayed there while on an anniversary trip to Asheville. We didn't want to leave. We were ready to either move in or bring Nick home with us. This B&B is fantastic. The room we stayed in (Kensington Garden) was just the right size for us, was clean, and was decorated nicely for the holidays. In fact, the whole B&B was decorated and felt very festive. We can't say enough nice things about Nick. He was kind and helpful. The breakfasts he made were unbelievably delicious. I have dietary restrictions and he made sure that I was accommodated with a special breakfast made just for me. He even got the type of tea I like. There are also cookies and beverages available all day, plus an evening cheese/wine reception. One additional bonus is that many hotels in the area have resort fees, parking fees, and no breakfast included, whereas Abbington Green has breakfast included, free available parking, no resort fees/internet fees/etc. To sum it all up, we would give Abbington Green 100 stars if we could. We know where we will stay every time we return to Asheville - nothing could be better than Abbington Green!

Innkeeper Response
Kensington Garden is one of my favorite rooms in the Main House, and I am so glad that you liked it too! I am so happy to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences, as having you be able to enjoy all aspects of your stay is really important to us here at Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn. We really want you to feel like you are at a home away from home when you stay with us. I really look forward to your next visit with us!


Top Notch!

So happy with our choice to stay at Abbington Green. Our inn keeper Nick was very warm, welcoming, and inviting. The breakfasts were top notch. Our room was very comfortable. The inn is nicely decorated. Great location. Can't wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
You stayed with us during such a lovely time, during the holidays...it is such a pleasure decorating our Inn for guests like you. From the Christmas trees to the decorated mantels, I am glad that you got the chance to see the Inn so festive decked out! Looking forward to your next trip to see us!
