... firm, and let others pass as they needed.
In spite of crazy drivers, steep grades, and cats who were crying from the effects of sharp elevation changes to their ears, we made it through. At one point, we noticed a young girl in an older Honda Civic speeding past us along the winding roads. We were worried, but let her pass. Two miles down the road we reached the bottom of a slope and saw her car. It had spun out of control and slammed into the traffic ...
I spent 11 hours on the road yesterday, driving just over 600 miles from the central coast in California to Ashland, Oregon, which is 11 miles across the border in to Oregon. Fortunately the weather was good and traffic was light.
I figured 11 hours was enough for one day. I took my time driving through Ashland. A very interesting and unique town ...
... so that worked out well.
The afternoon was spent doing errands at Home Depot, grocery shopping at Walmart and Carol's nails being done. When we stopped in the parking lot, we always have to look for a long stretch of open parking spaces to make sure we can park and then get out of the spaces. Everything at Home Depot was pretty full, but there was ...
... Taming of the Shrew' - a modern 50's version - and Francesca, Sofia and myself could go back to the hotel.
Julie's show finished at around 10 - so with the kids dutifully asleep by 9:30 I waited up for her to return.. well i waited... and waited... and eventually fell asleep around 11:30 - woke up again at 1:30 (still no Julie) - beginning to get a little worried.. fell asleep again - to be woken up at 3:30 as she came in door - having been out partying...

We returned to the condo and I headed out to the grocery for the things we needed for dinner. Upon returning, I cranked up the music and set out to fully utilize this gourmet kitchen! I made crostini topped with sundried tomato jam and goat cheese with thyme (Giada), a creamy tomato shrimp pasta ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Arden Forest Inn Ashland
Always great experience
We've been staying here for several years now and each year brings something new to experience. There's the remodeled rooms, the new pool with community barbecue, the gazebo, and the lush garden. The breakfasts are to die for if you can wait until 9am to eat. The hosts have a wealth of knowledge about the season's plays which creates some wonderful banter around the breakfast table. Arden Forest Inn is truly the premier B&B in Ashland.
Haven for theatre-lovers
BEST breakfast, BEST hosts, BEST conversation over the table - Arden Forest Inn's loyal clientele of fasinating guests from all backgrounds are the most informed, interested, entertaining group of Ashland pilgrims you'll find. Peruse the inn's library - lots of great theatre titles and fantasy fiction. The grounds are lovely, take your time in the garden on the way to the plunge pool - quotes, artifacts, even gargoyles are there to be found among the leaves. Easy walk to OSF.
The best B&B in town!
The Arden Forest Inn is the best B&B in Ashland! I have stayed at many others and have had a nice time, but the Arden Forest is superior in many ways. They have lovely rooms, fantastic breakfasts, an absolutely beautiful garden and pool, but the best part is the innkeepers, Corbet & Bill.They are extremely knowledgeable about the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, as well as plays & movies in general. They join their guests for breakfast, so you always have entertaining conversation to go along with the great meal. They are more than happy to help with dinner recommendations or reservations. It is because of them that I come back year after year!
Arden Forest is A Midsummer Night's Dream
A stay at Arden Forest is like entering another world - the verdant garden setting and lovely indoor background music transport one to a realm of tranquility and relaxation. Rooms, both public and private are beautifully appointed and the sumptuous breakfasts are a treat for both eye and palate. And the B&B's hosts, Corbet, Kory and William, are knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining!
A Great Place!
These guys are the best! Great food, great rooms, lively conversation, enormous (and fantastic!)gardens (incl. heated pool - YES!) - we just can't say enough good things about this place! Bill & Corbet went out of their way to obtain dinner reservations that worked with our schedule (all the places they selected were great, too - especially Lela's!), tell us about extra activities that were going on at the Shakespeare Festival while we were there (we actually got to view an original copy of Shakespeare's First Folio!), and really helped us forget about "the real world" for a few days. Because of them and their B&B, we intend to make Ashland a permanent destination point. We can't wait to return!
Taste & Laughs
Hands down the best B & B for me! The decor has taste, the owners funny & real. Highly recommend!
The Best and most magical Bed and Breakfast in Ashland
Arden Forest Inn has the best to offer anyone! We loved the 2 room suite, the play discussions at breakfast time, the almost unreal gardens, and the in-ground heated swimming pool! In our opinion there is no other Bed and Breakfast to worth while staying at in Ashland (and we have tried many). Bill and Corbet are very knowledgeable of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Plays and they even have a guest library with all of the plays and synopses if you need to brush up.
Arden Forest Inn is the best. They have thought of everything. Beautiful gardens - very peaceful. I will return often.
Great visit to Ashland
Corbet and Bill, returned to Livermore safe and sound after a great visit to Ashland. Especially enjoyed our breakfast with you two. Your wit, hospitality and pancakes put us at ease and facilitated a delightful interaction with the other guests. They were interesting and asked some good questions. I hope they got tickets to some good shows. My daughter still thinks 'Macbeth' was excellent.Some of my pictures are attached.Gil S

This Inn is the best that I have stayed at in Ashland and I have stayed at least 6 different B&B's in there. The hosts are absolutely charming. The rooms and grounds are superb. In my opinion this is the only place in Ashland to stay.B. Anaman
