I've been coming to the festival for 15 years and have stayed at Arden Forest nearly all of those years. There have been times when I couldn't stay at Arden the whole time and have had to book part of my trip somewhere else. So I can tell you, on those days/nights, I long for Arden Forest. The other inns...

This is a B&B we intend to return to the next time we visit Ashland. The serene atmosphere, the beautiful gardens, the comfortable rooms, the fabulous breakfast with interesting guests, and above all the hosts who made our brief visit so special make this a highly recommended B&B.

This was our 8th stay at the Arden Forest Inn for the Shakespeare Festival Plays. Every year just keeps getting better. We feel that Bill and Corbet, the hosts, are family. They make outstanding breakfasts and stimulate fun and intelligent discussion at breakfast. Our group from Salem takes 3 of the 5 rooms, and we have become close friends with...

We come to Ashland each June to see the plays, but a large part of our enjoyment of this week is staying at Arden Foest Inn. We almost consider it our home away from home. The hosts, Bill and Corbet make breakfast special: Bill's food is wonderful, with a first course of abundant fruit platters, followed by a creative and...

Prior to staying at Arden Forest Inn we visited several other B&B's in Ashland, but none compared to the wonderful experience that our hosts Bill and Corbet provided. Accommodations are very comfortable, clean and well maintained. Communal breakfasts are a daily highlight as the food is consistently outstanding, and is coupled with lively conversation providing knowledgeable insights into the current...

We travel to Ashland from the Seattle area once or twice a year in order to see the plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. We have stayed at several nice places, but this one has become our home in Ashland. We appreciate the fact that the hosts and many of the other guests are interested in the theatre, both in...

Our family goes with us so we just about take over the inn. Our hosts join us at breakfast and we talk about the plays,the actors and Ashland gossip. Great fun. Ask for the angel biscuits. They are super.

Arden Forest Inn has been my husband and my home away from home in Ashland ever since we discovered the inn several years ago. Whenever the daily grind gets stressful or monotonous I daydream that I am at breakfast with Bill and Corbet, eating one of Bill's fluffy biscuits or homey corn muffins, with nothing better to do than linger...

We have stayed at the Arden Forest Inn several times on our theatre visits to Ashland. We have also stayed in four other Bed and Breakfasts in Ashland but AFIN is our favorite and definately the best of them all. We love the beautiful grounds just outside of the main festival area but close enough for a short walk. On...

My wife and I stayed here for the first time at the end of our honeymoon.
