“Charming hostess, lovely rooms & garden, delicious breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We are veteran OSF members and much prefer B&Bs to hotels -- the communal breakfast table and the ability to mingle with other guests is something we cherish. Cyd and Gary are gracious and informative hosts; the breakfasts varied, delicious and plentiful, incorporating home-grown fresh produce and herbs. The home and gardens are nicely maintained; lots of reading materials and New York Times available in the common room. The Inn is within easy access to the theaters, good restaurants and shopping. We always returned after our afternoon play to a shady spot in the garden, and fresh cookies, chocolates, nuts with fully outfitted tea/coffee station. It is very pet-friendly (a couple guests had their well-behaved pets with them.) Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable, and well-stocked with books to make us feel right at home. We enjoyed our first stay here and would readily recommend this place to others.

After coming to Ashland several times, we finally decided to try a B&B in town. The Albion Inn was great choice. The location was a short walk to the theater. The innkeeper Cyd was very friendly. The breakfasts were very good. The rooms are very comfortable with tempurpedic mattress. It was over 100 degrees outside but the ac kept things nice and cool. The garden outback is lovely with tables for relaxing and picnicking. We will definitely stay at the Albion again.

Wow! Thank you for the glowing review. I apologize for taking too long to respond to your kind words. Your five star review means a lot considering your senior contributor status with Trip Advisor.

I'm glad you enjoyed your b&b experience here in Ashland. Ashland is such a charming little village that it just seems the most natural thing to do to stay in one of the old, historic homes.

We stayed at the Albion Inn in Ashland, Oregon. We enjoyed our stay there. Syd is a charming host. She also cooks excellent breakfasts and always has chocolate chip cookies on the buffet!!
The rooms are delightful a and the beds are very comfortable. All in all, a lovely experience.

Thanks for the review! I just made some all organic, whole wheat Greek cookies. They're made with olive oil rather than butter--very crispy and not very sweet. Mmmm... I'm going to set out some sweeter cookies, too, for those who like a bit more sugar in their snacks. Hope to see you again soon,

This was our fist Bed and Breakfast experience in Ashland, and it was a great one. We had one of the garden rooms adjacent to the main house. The folks in the room next door had a dog with them. Cyd, our innkeeper, made it very clear that if we were at all bothered by the dog barking, we should inform her at once and she would remedy the situation. As it was, the dog never made a peep, and, in fact, turned out to be a charming and very well behaved guest. Our room was clean, well-appointed and blessedly air-conditioned in the nearly 100 degree heat. Cyd served a delicious breakfast, and encouraged a lively conversation among guests around the breakfast table. The gardens are a lovely spot to sip a cup of tea or a glass of wine in the evening. In all, a positive experience from beginning to end.

Thanks for your review! As far as I know, we've only ever had one complaint about a guest's dog. All our other furry visitors have been very sweet and respectfully quiet. I'm so glad your first B&B experience in Ashland was a good one! People always wind up coming back to the Albion Inn once they find us...

Just back from one of many stays here. Comfortable, clean, friendly and breakfasts are great. Yes, pet freindly, but confined to the cottages adjacent to the house. I am allergic to cats and dogs, have never had an issue staying in the main house. The room we stay in now has a terrific king bed with a firm, foam type mattress. I have a bad back, and this bed was just the ticket. You are a block from Safeway where you can buy some wine, cheese and kill some time in the very pleasant garden, a favorite activity of ours. The main drag is a short walk. Many lodging choices in Ashland and we have been at most. Albion is the one we choose to return to year after year.

Room Tip: Courtyard king our favorite.

We were attracted to the Albion Inn on Trip Advisor, not just for the rave reviews, but also for the innkeepers' posted responses to their guests' comments. To us, this revealed a real interest in their business and a genuine concern for their guests' experiences. I said to my husband, "I want to stay in a place where the innkeepers obviously care about what people say about their visit there." And we were not disappointed. In fact, we absolutely fell in love with the Albion Inn and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Ashland. Cyd and Gary are marvelous hosts, and their inn is one of the most comfortable, serene, gracious places we've ever stayed. Our room, just off the lovely garden, was roomy, charming, and private, with our own little patio for sipping wine in the late afternoon. However, more fun was had lounging in the garden, visiting with Ashland friends, and meeting fellow travelers. I can't say enough about Cyd, our hostess, who is a generous, gregarious, marvelous storyteller, chef, sage, savant, cat savior, and doggie wrangler. She is a hoot. I'm not an early riser, but I couldn't miss out on Cyd and her incredible breakfasts: homemade papaya scones, Greek egg scrambles, fabulous fruit smoothies, yummy vegetable quiches, berry waffles, strong coffee, and -- she and her guests will understand the reference -- Slinky "donuts." What a marvelous inn, complete with wonderful people and pets! The Albion Inn has our highest recommendation.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a pet, the garden rooms are excellent!

In a charming home within walking distance to the plays at OSF, the inn has nicely decorated and clean comfortable rooms, ample and attractive spaces for lounging and meeting other guests, checking e-mail etc., a garden area, and thoughtful touches such as homemade cookies, and a fridge for the guests. Delicious breakfasts also. What really sets it apart and above most B&Bs are the conversations that Cyd inspires around the breakfast table and the warm and friendly atmosphere. Guests compare their experiences of the plays and share other stories and information and Cyd is often ready with some of her own insights and food for thought. It added so much to our experience in Ashland and we look forward to returning.
