Questions That Are Frequently Asked

Location

How far is the B&B from town?
We're about 5 miles from the south end of Ashland, with downtown a couple of miles further. Driving to Ashland is an easy 10-minute trip. The B&B is entirely non-smoking, inside and outside.

Parking

What's parking like in Ashland?
Ashland is a small, walkable town with plenty of free parking, both on the streets and in city lots. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (a magnet for many visitors to Ashland) also has a parking structure near the theaters where you can park quite inexpensively.

Special Diets

Can my dietary needs be accommodated?
We have many guests with special dietary requirements and we're happy to accommodate them all. We have a range of excellent menu options for vegetarians, vegans, those with gluten-free or low-fat diets, and those with allergies to particular foods.
We're most grateful if you let us know ahead of time, for example, in the "Notes" section of the on-line reservation form. We'll ask again when you arrive to make sure we haven't overlooked any issue. We want you to completely enjoy your stay with us, and having food you'll like is an important part of that experience.

Choosing
a Room

How do you decide what room to choose?
All the rooms are lovely, but they differ in particular ways. If your priority is:
Privacy: Pick the Brick Cottage, which is a separate building.
Views: Pick the Barron Room or Gibbs Room, which both have multiple tall windows with spectacular views out across the valley and up the ridges.
Two beds: In most situations, the Russell Room is best, because it has a queen bed and a double bed in the same large room. The Brick Cottage is the other option, with a queen bed in the large room upstairs and a twin bed in a small nook downstairs.
King bed: The Gibbs Room has a king-sized bed.
Fabulous bathroom: Pick the Gibbs Room, which has beautiful light and a six-foot clawfoot tub, as well as a walk-in shower, or the Barron Room, which also has a clawfoot tub and walk-in shower, along with a beautiful mirrored armoire and mirrored wall over the sink.
Quiet: The Brick Cottage is the quietest space, partly because it's a self-contained building, and partly because it's the farthest from the road.

Gift Certificates

Do you have gift certificates?
We are delighted to provide gift certificates in the amount of your choice. You can make a reservation for a specific room at a given time, or just gift someone with a particular dollar amount to apply toward a stay here, and allow them to make the reservation themselves.
We provide a four-color, glossy gift certificate (8 1/2 x 11") which we can mail to you or to the recipient of your gift. Alternatively, we can email you a PDF that you can print yourself. Our gift certificates do not expire. If you'd like to arrange for a gift certificate, please give us a quick call at 866-899-2744 (toll-free), 8am-8pm, Pacific Time.

Pets

Do you accept pets?
Sadly, no. Our dog, Teddy, and cat, Pixel, enjoy visiting outdoors with guests. But we keep the B&B pet-free indoors for those who are allergic to animals.

Kids

What is your policy regarding children?
We are happy to welcome kids ages 12 and older. If you're traveling with younger children, we can refer you to a lodging that's family-oriented.

Having Fun

What can you do when you're in Ashland?
Ashland is famous as the home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, one of America's most distinguished repertory theater companies. OSF is a truly remarkable cultural resource, and the varied and powerful productions that are mounted there from February through October have made Ashland a major travel destination for residents of and visitors to the West Coast.
Ashland is proud to have a second professional theater as well, the Oregon Cabaret Theater, which provides witty musical theater nearly year round.
Although it is a small town in a rural setting, Ashland supports a surprising range of shops, galleries, spas, wine bars, and terrific restaurants: we'll be happy to point you to our favorites. Fine wineries dot the region; most really welcome visitors.
This area is a beautiful valley, with world-class river rafting, as well as hiking, fishing, horsebackriding, and all kinds of cycling (a favorite route for cyclists runs by our door). We overlook Emigrant Lake, an 800-acre park that's great for walking and birding. We're close to both the Pacific Crest Trail and the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument wilderness area. In winter, there's downhill and cross-country skiing twenty minutes away at Mount Ashland.
Farther afield, you'll find the historic gold mining town of Jacksonville and the outdoor performances at its summer Britt Music Festival. Beyond that, Crater Lake, Mount Shasta, and the Oregon Caves are all easy day trips.
Ask us: we've got maps and guides galore, as well as plenty of time to chat with you about what you'll enjoy.
