I travel frequently around the country, in Europe, and in Asia -- and I return habitually to only one place: the Arden Forest Inn. The ambience, the warm reception and attention of the hosts, the conviviality of the guests, the superb breakfasts, the convenient location, the amenities -- all are tops! The long, lazy, informed conversations with both hosts and... More

We stayed six nights and the owners, Corbet and Bill made great breakfasts and discussed the previous day's plays with the guests. They see all the OSFplays at least once themselves and are very knowledgeable. But, it is very lighthearted conversation full of humor and laughter for everyone. One morning, two guests had their 12 year old son with them... More

Karen and I have been traveling to Ashland for almost 20 years to see a sampling of the plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and spend a long weekend in this great town with lots to do and excellent restaurants. For the first 15 years we stayed at a different B and B every year. Some were good. Some were... More

We've been coming to Arden Forest for many years. The rooms are wonderful, the grounds exquisite and the pool refreshing. It's unique quality is the family style breakfast--so if you are a crudmudgeony misanthrope don't come here! Being able to chat about the shared experiences of the plays and share in Ashland's overall appeal at breakfast is a treat. Moreover,... More

My wife and son took me to Arden Forest Inn as a birthday present. Wow. The setting is wonderful and the food is great. But the best part of Arden Forest are the owners. Bill and Corbett are the quintessential hosts: knowledgable, funny and entertaining. You know it's a good sign when you find the morning has passed you by... More

This was our first visit to the quaint town of Ashland and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of accommodation. The Arden Forest Inn is a true find.

We had a great stay and breakfast at the Arden Forest Inn. Our hosts were very generous and engaging. This was our first B&B experience and it was great, I hope they are all like this one.

Bill and Corbett, the co-hosts at Arden Forest, made my first visit to Ashland a magical one. They have such deep insights and knowledge of the theater scene that I could listen to them for hours.

I was visiting Ashland because I will be relocating to Southern Oregon in the summer. I have stayed at B&B all over the world and I can safely say that the Arden Forest Inn is one of the best.

This was our first visit in Winter time and the ARDEN FOREST is STILL the place to stay! Bill and Corbet's hospitality is so warm, you can ignore the temperature outside. Even this early in the OSF season, they knew all about the plays and always have the best restaurant recommendations too. We'll never stay anywhere else.
