I am not new to Arden Forest. My wife and I have been coming here every season for over 10 years. This was my first year solo, and the place still rocks. The pool is wonderful, the morning conversations over wonderful breakfasts is fun and informative, and the other guests informed and interesting. A great place to stay, especially is... More

We absolutely loved visiting the Arden Forest Inn and plan to stay there every year we visit in the future! Bill and Corbet were fantastic Inn Keepers and honest theater critics as well. It is a beautiful place perfect for relaxing and feeling like you're at home when you're not at home. Not to mention the most delicious breakfasts and... More

Double your fun while in Ashland. Stay at Arden Forest Inn (AFI). My wife and I have been spending 1 or 2 weeks there every year since 1990. If you like comfortable surroundings and delicious breakfasts, stay at AFI. If you like great conversations about theatre, movies, books, or other unlimited fun topics, stay at AFI. If you want to...

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.
