Bill and Corbitt made our stay very enjoyable. We stayed in a cottage with a private patio area and were very comfortable. Breakfasts were incredible as Bill is a great cook! Breakfast conversations centered around the plays people had seen or were going to see and Bill and Corbitt were full of very helpful information and advice. This bed and... More

The Arden forest inn is a peaceful sanctuary in Ashland. The innkeepers Corbet and Bill are charming and take great pride in their business. They serve a fabulous communal breakfast which they eat with their guests, a really nice touch. Bill is an amazing chef and the presentation can compete with any high end hotel. Conversation tends to center around... More

My two-nights at Arden Forest Inn were a truly satisfying experience and definitely not long enough. The owners have made this an off the beaten path paradise that is walking distance from the center of Ashland's theater scene. A lovely appointed room, as well as a tasty (and ample) breakfast, made my stay a memorable one. The reception was warm... More

You will not find a better spot to spend a few nights. The hosts are adorable and fun, the rooms are comfy and cozy, and the breakfasts: Wow! Make sure to suggest the biscuits!!! The attention to detail is impressive and the location can't be beat! We'll be back for sure!

I never give anything five stars but we sincerely had the best time at Arden Forest Inn. We cannot wait to go back. We went during spring break with our kids and had the whole place to ourselves.
