“Not bad, not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Stayed here two nights when visiting Ashland, mainly due to the fact that they allow pets. The house, is quaint, small and old, but we were not warned that the room ("Richard Room") next to the kitchen is extremely noisy starting at 6:45 a.m. each morning. And when I say noisy, I mean NOISY! So we didn't get the sleep we needed either morning. The innkeepers are decent, but in a New England sort of way. In other words, they are a little aloof and stand-offish. Much more than that, they are older (early 70s) and eccentric. Eccentric can be okay if that is your cup of tea. I suppose that small, artistic communities like Ashland tend to attract a lot of "different" type of folks. They try to be helpful, but they are really not. They don't suggest many things - you have to ask. For example, they did not tell us until we arrived late on Sunday that Monday is a dark day for the famous Shakespeare theater, so we missed our one and only chance to see a play. They gave us directions for a "shortcut" to Crater Lake, but didn't tell us about the lengthy construction delays. They sent us on our way with a care package of Tastycakes, but when we went to eat them, we noticed that the expiration date on the cakes was July 2009! How does that slip by someone? We might have gotten ill. They told me that I could walk my dog around the perimeter of the local park, but did not tell me that perimeter did not mean pathway, but rather the road, so I am almost got fined by the local rent-a-cop. They are not good about replying to emails. They won't let anyone's pet wander around, but their dog is allowed to stay in the kitchen, drink from the toilet,.... It seems quite hypocritical if you ask me. Again, they are nice people, but just not as welcoming and helpful as I would want from B & B owners. Oh, and no off street parking for most guests.

The BEST stay we've ever had out of dozen other places for our active children. David and Deedee really understand the needs of adults and children and plan accordingly. They are wonderfully informed about Oregon Shakespeare festival and have lots of insights.They care deeply about their guests and remember each one. We hadn't seen them in ages, so it was a real treat to arrive and see all the development of the Garden suites, just across from the Main house b and b. Garden suites are so large and comfortable, with patios and lounge chairs and places to eat breakfast and relax. Rooms have jetted tub, kitchenettes and plenty of storage. Would love to stay for 2 weeks actually. They have a Clubhouse right there that allows for computer time, legos, snacks and drinks, magazines. The previous person to comment is actually incorrect- they serve a terrific breakfast free of charge in the Clubhouse. Best muffins ever, hard boiled eggs, fruit, juice, oatmeal, cereal- something for everyone. If you want the full sit down breakfast you can have it for a small fee in Main house. It made such a relaxing stay to be able to roam around gardens and not be confined to our room. In afternoon, they serve a nutritious and deciious spread of goodies. You will never be hungry. All the staff are so warm and terrific. Go to Cucina Biazzi right next door for authentic Italian food. Deedee is a skilled writer and we picked up a copy of her memoir as well. Total Peace and Joy at Anne Hathaway.

Arrived in the afternoon and were shown to our room. Very disappointed in the Garden room we were put in. We were not given any info on the "amenities". Come to find out we had to go to the main house to get afternoon "treats". If we wanted breakfast we had to pay extra. Ice tea & lemonade in main house. Felt like second class citizens. Would not go back.

Although a somewhat seasoned traveler, this was my first B&B experience. I had been skeptical about B&B's. However, I had an absolutely wonderful 6 day stay here. Although an old house, the place was immaculate and charmingly furnished. Deedie and David help make the experience comfortable and are wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. All in all, I cannot find a negative comment to make about my stay at Anne Hathaway's; it was a perfect fit for me.

Room Tip: Stay in the house it you want a B&B atmosphere or in the suites across the street for a differen...

We've been spending a week every summer for the last five years at Deedie and David's. The accommodations are comfortable, the garden is lovely, the food is excellent and the charming and delightful hosts are a fount of information on the plays, the city and the surrounding area. We especially love the option of the "light" breakfast served to those of us staying in the garden cottages--fresh baked goodies, yogurt, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, granola. And cookies or meringues or brownies or lemon bars miraculously appear every afternoon around four.

We were a Rotary GSE team of 5 from Malaysia and Diddie hosted us and only gave us the best. Great food, great conversations.

My wife and I just spent a week at Anne Hathaway's in Ashland and what a great experience!
The owners were very friendly yet respectful of our needs. The property was colorful and inviting and the room/house was quite comfortable. The food was fabulous and we left feeling refreshed and ready for a busy summer.Thanks for a wonderful and relaxing stay at your "home".
