A Wonderful Thanksgiving

5 on December 05, 2017

We stayed for the second time this year and it was an excellent experience again. Nick and his staff treat you as family and the rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. We reserved our dinner reservations for thanksgiving at the Inn and it was terrific. We have already reserved our room for 2018 thanksgiving along with other couples with whom we met at the Inn this year. It will be like coming home for the holidays next November.


Best B&B Stay in 20 years!!

4.0 on December 04, 2017

My husband and I recently spent a three day weekend at the Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast in Asheville, NC. We have stayed in B&Bs for the past twenty years. Everything from the reservation process to our arrival, stay and departure far exceeded our expectations. It was truly the best B&B stay we have ever experienced. We have been around the world, and enjoyed lodging in a number of places, but there is just something wonderful about our time under the care of Nick Poulos and his excellent staff. The Inn is beautifully appointed and decorated with the warmest of touches and comfort. Our room was so comfortable with our host, Nick thinking of our every need before we even asked. Extra soft pillows, a charging station, an automatic night light in the bathroom, bath salts, etc., etc., etc. The bed was the best bed we have ever slept in away from home! Our three course breakfasts were meticulously and creatively prepared for us. I enjoyed the selection of organic and regular juices, along with coffees and teas. All presented beautifully in china and crystal, as if we were staying with an affluent family member. I enjoyed a 90 minute, hot stone & aromatherapy massage right there in the Spa room. We enjoyed the time to gather & relax in the late afternoons with a beverage and dome delicious appetizers. Every part of our stay was well thought out, planned and executed with the highest of standards. I simply cannot recommend Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn enough!!


Abbington Green

I cannot say enough great things about Abbington Green, Nick, and his staff! So amazing! The rooms are comfy and cozy, and have everything you could ask for. The property was decorated amazingly for Christmas. Can make even the biggest Grinch in the holiday spirit! Breakfast was amazing and plentiful, so much food!! Nick is an amazing person, and puts so much effort into his bed and breakfast. I can't wait to visit again!


The Gem of Asheville!

5 on November 13, 2017

I had the pleasure of surprising my wife with a week-long stay at Abbington Green to celebrate her birthday. She was absolutely astounded by the hospitality offered by Nick, Steve, Carey, and the staff. The attention to detail is par excellence: from meal planning (particularly accommodating my wife's dietary sensitivities) to the decor. Most exciting were the opportunities we had to build new friendships with our fellow guests. Logistically, the B&B is superbly planned and laid out. Location is prime. We're already planning to bring our friends back with us!


Outstanding attention to detail. Friendly and helpful staff.

4.8 on November 12, 2017

Nick and his staff have put together a lovely place to stay, both inside and out. The rooms are amazing, the breakfasts were first-rate and the wine a cheese (good choices) were a fun opportunity to get to know the other guests.


Great B&B

First Class, all the way

4.4 on November 02, 2017

The B & B both inside and out were amazing. The breakfasts were scrumptious. They take a lot of pride in what they have created and it shows. Just a beautiful place to stay.

There are lots of options when you are looking for a place to stay in beautiful Asheville. Of course, it depends on what you are looking for, but you really shouldn't miss a stay at the Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast. Nick, the owner, has thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay delightful. From an incredible breakfast to scrumptious bites during happy hour, you will not want to miss any food offerings. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have all the latest gadgets you need like charging stations, noise machines, wifi and pillow selections. The Inn is a quick walk to downtown or a 3 minute Uber ride. The staff is absolutely top notch! If you don't stay here on one of your trips to Asheville, you are totally missing out!


A beautiful inn with delicious food and personable service.

5 on September 29, 2017

We chose this Inn for its great location and the description of the lovely rooms. Both these things were true but with the addition of such incredible customer service from every member of the staff and the delicious meals, we will most certainly return here again. Nick was so knowledgeable about places to dine and attractions to visit and could answer just about any question we came up with. Thank you so much for a very special visit to your lovely inn!
