Bob and Mary Jo are the most hospitable of B&B owners met to date. They have thoroughly planned their B&B with all the amenities known. Mary Jo’s delicious breakfasts are gourmet by any standard. Nice indoor and outdoor sitting areas, providing ample privacy to enjoy the environment of the north Georgia mountains. The lodge is close enough to the village of Blue Ridge for shopping and enjoying one of the many excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner, and still be able to experience the seclusion of the woods. And there are plenty of hiking trails and scenic rides to choose from in close proximity to the lodge. We will definitely plan a return visit.
From the moment we were greeted on the front porch, until we reluctantly said goodbye, this B & B kept getting better and better. Bob and MaryJo, the owners, take southern hospitality to a whole new level while still giving guests ample privacy. We knew the reviews were good, but we'd only stayed at a B & B once before @ 20 years ago and weren't sure how we'd like it. I'm happy to say it exceeded all our expectations and then some. Aside from MaryJo and Bob being very special, the details like the bottomless cookie jar, lit fireplace on a chilly morning, fire pit lit @ night, nice robes, beverages and snacks always available, quality sheets, comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts, snacks and beverages always available, tastefully decorated rooms, (larger and prettier than the…
We were visiting Georgia for the first time and tried to spend some time on the coast, in cities and in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Aska Lodge was a perfect spot from which to explore the mountains. Starting with a wonderful breakfast with interesting guests and ending the day with a bonfire or sitting on our deck, our visit to the mountains could not have been better. Thanks to Mary Jo and Bob for their hospitality and recommendations of excellent restaurants and places to see.
A fantastic place to stay! Very peaceful, natural surrounding area and nevertheless near by the town. The hospitality of Mary Jo and Bob was great and their breakfast was delicious.
From the moment we walked in the door, our stay at Aska Lodge was the very best B&B experience ever. Innkeepers Mary Jo and Bob are naturals for the hospitality business, and we felt like we were actually guests in their home, rather than customers. The breakfast was delicious, and every detail was planned for and handled beautifully. Bob is a very entertaining host and Mary Jo is a warm and gracious hostess. We'll be back! Joe and Susan M.
