Designed by Biltmore Estate's Supervising Architect in the early 1900s, the inn has a British theme. You'll find furniture and furnishings that reflect both Old World as well as the new. The theme is also reflected in the six award-winning English garden areas around the house.
Genuine and relaxed hospitality are hallmarks of Abbingotn Green. Our main-floor rooms are just the place to relax, play chess or piano or just curl up with a good book. Or have a lively conversation with friends on our expansive front porch, decks, veranda or in the gardens. And you'll enjoy a gourmet breakfast each day in our Dining Room made from mainly organic and local ingredients.
Each of our suites and rooms features a king-size bed with custom bed drapes, fine fabrics and bed linens, private bath with whirlpool with shower above, wall-mounted flatscreen TV with DVD, working fireplace and seasonal air conditioning.
The menu consists of a set menu of several courses, ‘chef’s choice’ each day, served right at 9am. Our “breakfast philosophy” is that breakfast at Abbington Green is more like a lovely brunch. You can expect local organic eggs, organic dairy products, and organic fruits and vegetables in our main courses. You’ll often find a lovely piece of cake served along side the fruit course. And breakfast may include something unexpected like an organic side salad served with an organic dressing. Home grown herbs, often from our own garden and greenhouse, are also likely to be included. And not to forget, we use the sweet herb Stevia in place of much of the sugar in our fruit recipes.
On a busy day, breakfast in our Dining Room at Abbington Green may remind you of your own home at Thanksgiving Day dinner. You’ll find guests gathered in a friendly environment… talking, relaxing and eating well at the start of a fun and interesting day in Asheville!
