Saw the Palm when we drove into town. We stayed here because the gardens are so lovely and our poodle was welcomed in their pet friendly rooms. It was early spring and the garden was charming. However, the owners are the real charm here. They are warm, friendly, hospitable and bend over backwards to make sure their guests feel comfortable. This is not a corporate faceless chain. It's owned and operated by a family that cares and it shows. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The setting, well back from the main road makes for a peaceful sleep. The little cottages are economically priced for Ashland, which can be an expensive town. The suites in the renovated house is pricier, but romantic and tasteful with soaker tubs and fireplaces. In warm weather, there is a lovely pool. Sadly, it was not open yet during our stay. I heartily recomend The Palm for people looking for a place to stay that is a little more interesting and individual. Not all rooms are pet friendly, so if travelling with a dog, it's best to book well in advance.
