Just close your eyes and imagine Energizer Battery's marketing icon (pink bunny in sunglasses banging on a drum) and transfer that vision of nonstop energy to Cyd, innkeeper/owner of Albion Inn. Not only is Cyd a creative cook of healthy breakfasts, she also is an expert conversationalist on a wide range of topics, a helpful local information resource, a gardener and a lover of both dogs & cats. Cyd's assistant, Rayetta, keeps each guest room in tip top condition, yet one feels right at home. There are lots of options for socializing with fellow guests, or one may enjoy a more private experience. No need for lunch after Cyd's hearty breakfasts, though she stocks the dining area with cookies, fruit & bites of sweets for those up late after viewing a play or exploring the Ashland area. My husband & I parked our car in designated off-street spot and then walked everywhere throughout our 4-night stay (suggest this since there's no shortage of fantastic restaurants!) This is a perfect spot for one who enjoys being pampered without being smothered.
