This was a mother/daughter first time trip to Ashland. My mother had bid on a package deal at an auction which included 2 nights at the Pelton House B&B and 2 theatre performances, one at OSF and the other at the Caberet Theatre.
Unfortunately, since it was last minute reservations we couldn't get two nights together for the weekend we could go. So, the first night, (Friday) we stayed in the Auberge House across the street from the Pelton House. We stayed in the upstairs portion of the house called Manzanita. It was perfect for us. It had two separate bedrooms along with a laundry room and a beautiful bathroom. Also, 2 large closets. Downstairs is a complete kitchen with an adjacent enclosed patio. It was wonderful having our own refrigerator and coffee maker available to us. Coffee/tea was prepared the night before, and the first person up in the morning just needs to push start. I also noticed a shelf full of books, games and maps. In the morning, breakfast is at the main house at 9:00am. Each morning something different was served and very delicious.
Our second night, (Saturday), we had a reservation at a nearby hotel.
Our third night, (Sunday), we were back at the Pelton House. This time we were in the main house in the room called, Wood.
Another VERY clean, lovely 2 bedroom with beautifully tiled bathroom. Each bedroom had a small t.v., but I never turned them on. Beds in each room were very comfortable.
Of the two rooms we stayed in, I preferred the Manzanita in the Auberge house. I felt it was much quieter and I loved having the access to a kitchen. The "wood" room over at the PH was just too noisy for me. I admit I am a light sleeper and wished I had brought my "sound soother" to help drown out the background noise. I did hear other guest enter the B&B just past 11p.m, go upstairs and then leave around 6:00a.m. Also, you will hear kitchen noise as well. That didn't bother me, but something to be aware of.
Note: There is a construction project going on a block away, but that never bother us, maybe because it was the weekend. And the only improvements I would suggest would be cleaning up the outside a bit.
I would highly recommend this B&B! It really is the perfect location to the theatre and restaurants!
Also, I have nothing but high praise to say about Mary! She was so kinda and accommodating to my mother and I.
