“A great to stay in Ashland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2008

I go to Ashland each year with my wife and I must say the Winchester Inn is our favorite place to stay. It’s located just off the main street so everything in town is an easy walk. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable and the suites especially so, well worth the upgrade if they’re available. The stay also includes a satisfying full breakfast and not some oatmeal and toasted bagel buffet.

They do an excellent job with the dinners too – the Beef Wellington is definitely worth a try. But before you settle down to dine, you should venture into their wine bar. This is a few years new and I love it. They have some great local wines and special finds to try plus the sommelier is great company. But really the whole staff is great; they are all exceptionally helpful and pleasant.

Go and enjoy.

“Wonderful bed and breakfast”

Just spent a great week-end for our anniversary. Everyone was very friendly and took very good care of us. Dinner was excellent and we had a wonderful time. It's not cheap so don't expect a bargain but for special occasions I would highly recommend both the inn and the restaurant. We booked a suite with a fireplace and it was very comfortable. The location is great, ideal for walking around town or going to a play.

Happy Belated Anniversary! I'm very glad to hear that you were treated well and I want to pass a little tid-bit for your next trip to Ashland. For our overnight guests we offer a special 3 course Prix Fixe, but we also just started a special which we are going to be running continuously which is a choice of soup or salad, and a choice of three different entrees for only $18. We want to give everyone enough choices. Hope to see you again soon.

“Great Food in a Fun Ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2008

We were a little late to dine in the more formal dining area, so we opted for the wine bar for a bite to eat while in Ashland this past Fri. night. This is a great option for those wanting someting to eat after regular restaurant hours. When we arrived there was a guitar player playing festive music, there were about four other tables that were full.

We enjoyed the red wine flight from Chile with our meal. We shared the Spinach salad, the appetizer of the Shrimp which was excellent and the Risotto, everything was wonderful. The wine bar is housed at the Winchester Inn which is also a Bed and Breakfast.

We will definitely return here while visiting Ashland in the future, maybe for a meal in the more formal dining area.

“5 Star Meal and 10 Star service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2007

Second visit and it was as great as or better than before. My husband and I recently stayed for our second visit just one night at the Winchester Inn and cannot tell you how peaceful and relaxing it was. We were on our way to a conference so we were a little tired after a long drive from California. We arrived somewhat late so we went straight into the restaurant for dinner. The staff was trying out a new menu so we got to try a couple of dishes which hadn’t been yet put on the menu. Just fantastic! The sturgeon was amazing as was the Lobster salad. Everything we ate was fantastic. The service was definitely 5 stars, Kate was delightful. The Sommelier, Drew, was so professional and really knew his wines and being from the “California Wine Country” ourselves, my husband was very impressed. What a jewel in Ashland!! Can’t wait to return but for more nights. I want to try so many other dishes on the menu.
