“My favorite B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This was my fourth stay at the Albion Inn. I have become quite attached to the Chautauqua suite and always look forward to visiting my home away from home.
One of the best things about a stay at the Albion is meeting the other guests. This year I met and shared the table with two sets of longtime friends who come to the Albion every year, twice a year. They were here for the Shakespeare Festival, while I was here for the Independent Film Festival. Great fun swapping play and film reviews.
As usual, the food was to die for, and there was plenty of it. Innkeeper Cyd made us her Blueberry-Lemon Curd Dutch Baby pancakes, which she proudly informed us had just won a recipe contest for bed and breakfasts. She showed us the article, complete with Dutch Baby photo, that had just been published in USA Today.
My favorite Ashland activity is walking around the neighborhoods, taking pictures of all of the darling, artsy houses and yards. Pretty good vacation, if you ask me. Of course, the best thing has to be the Albion Inn itself.

Room Tip: I like Chataqua, but check the photos on the web. All rooms are just homey and wonderful.

My friend and I had a lovely stay at the Albion Inn. We stayed in a room off the garden with a separate entrance. We chose the 2 twin bed configuration, but the beds can also be arranged as one bed. The room was beautifully decorated, with wonderful windows for light and ventilation (there was also air conditioning with. Controls in the room, but we didn't need it) a view of the beautiful,well kept garden, and a bathroom with a shower in the room. The room was not large, but it had all we needed. We also had access to the guest fridge, coffee, tea, brandy,chocolates, and other treats in the common dining area.
There was wifi as well as a computer for guest use, and a common TV room in the main house. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful.

The location was a nice area, and we felt safe there. It was not easy walking to the Shakespeare Festival, but it could be walked if you were up for it. It is an easy drive, however, and parking was easy and cheap enough near the festival.

The best part of our visit was our host, Cyd. She was always ready with lively and intelligent conversation, and knew how to engage others. She also seemed to know when to let people be alone if they did not want to talk, etc. Our last day, we had to leave early, and could not join the others for breakfast. Cyd left us an ample, nutritious sack breakfast in the guest fridge for the road. I had not been to a bed and breakfast prior to this trip, and did not know what to expect. I was not disappointed.

Stayed June 2012, traveled with friends

The Albion Inn is absolutely lovely! It has a wonderful romantic and homey vibe. The Innkeeper Cydd made us feel right at home. The breakfast she made was delicious! It was organic and non-GMO and she takes into account the dietary needs of her guests (gluten-free etc). She also makes fresh coffee at 7:00 am which is great for caffeine addicts like myself. The rooms are large, clean, and gorgeous. The backyard has relaxing gardens, and there are two rooms attached to the back yard which are pet friendly. It is a nice short walk to downtown. The inn has private parking spaces, free computer access, and TV (although there are much more exciting things to do in ashland) and a nice living room with beautiful art for sale on the walls. The bed we slept in was extremely comfortable, and since I have begin searching for the same type of mattress for my home. Each room had it's own bathroom and shower.
I will definitely be staying at the Albion Inn in all my future trips to Ashland, and will be strongly recommending the Albion to all my friends traveling through Oregon! Don't miss out on this Gem!

Room Tip: Chautauqua is a fantastic corner room upstairs overlooking both the front and the side of the house...

We have stayed at many of the B & B's in Ashland and have added this to the top of our FAVORITES list. The Albion is very reasonably priced, and if you stay during the off season you have a chance to have the entire house to yourself which we thoroughly enjoyed. However, our delicious breakfast was not lonely as Cyd, the gracious host that she is, stimulated interesting and fun conversation as well as encouraged us to take the back stage tour, which we had never done in all the years of visiting Ashland. If you enjoy tastefully decorated rooms, clean facilities, friendly atmosphere, healthy, delicious breakfasts and an incredibly convenient location, then check out the Albion Inn!

Thank you so much for signing up to leave your first review! What effort, and such a nice review. Thank you for your kind words and for the good conversation at breakfast. We look forward to hosting you again!

I suppose I should mention that breakfast conversation is not required of our guests. So many of these wonderful reviews talk about the interesting table talks that it may make potential guests feel nervous. But never fear! Guests may choose to dine in the garden, weather permitting, or they may also choose to dine in the den. Just let us know your preferences so we may set the table appropriately.

This is a beautiful property located on a quiet side street within easy walking distance of downtown Ashland. The home itself has been lovingly restored, and is exceptionally well maintained. There are three large bedrooms upstairs in the main house, and two rooms outside facing the beautiful garden, all with private baths. The outside rooms are dog friendly, so your four-legged companions are welcome here as well. Cyd and Gary are both wonderful hosts, and Cyd's breakfasts are the best in town. Everything is organic, and with so many B & B's going to the continental breakfast, it is a joy to sit down to a real breakfast. We had fresh juice every morning, along with a pastry (muffins, scones, etc), fresh fruit, and then the main course. No need for lunch after starting the day here! There is a side bar in the dining room with 24 hour access to a wide variety of teas, and a refrigerator for guests to use for their own beverages or left-over food, and a microwave for reheating. Cyd also provides cookies and other snacks in the afternoon. We bought a bottle of wine and had our own cocktail hour every evening before heading out to dinner. Both the living room and dining room are large enough for gatherings, and there is also a small TV - game room off the living room, if you are so inclined. Cyd and Gary have gone out of their way to think of every detail to make your stay more enjoyable. We will definitely come again.

Room Tip: Garden View has a king sized bed and a large bathroom, but all of the rooms are large and quiet.

Such a glowing review from such an experienced and trusted reviewer! Thank you so much. I appreciate the details in your review--you really give the flavor of the place.

The "Best Breakfast in Ashland" title is true to a certain degree--my recipe for Blueberry/Lemon-Curd Dutch Baby pancakes was just ranked among the 8 Best Breakfasts in the country for 2013. There was even a picture of the pancakes in USA Today's online edition.

Hope to see you again soon.

Fantastic and convenient Inn. They were not only dog friendly but dog lovers. The Inn Keeper Cyd is a warm and welcoming person and makes a really fantastic organic breakfast. She's also fascinating to chat with!

The place is very convenient to everything, you can leave your car and cruise around on foot or bike.

We highly recommend Albion Inn!

Room Tip: If you have pets take the room furthest from the main house in case they happen to bark.

Thank you for your super review! Yes, we decided to make the inn pet friendly when we took over because we never, ever, go anywhere without our two dogs, so for us it's the Golden Rule. Pets are only allowed in the two courtyard rooms; never in the main house. Our guests seem to enjoy our dogs and cats and the other guest dogs.

The Albion Inn is within walking distance of everything! We loved walking, shopping and dining in Ashland knowing that when we were exhausted we would return to this welcoming B & B. Cyd and Gary ensure the perfect combination of privacy and conversation with their guests. The conversation is always lively during their phenomenal breakfasts, they are quick to help with logistics and then they disappear, leaving you to your romantic interlude. There are many small touches that make you feel welcome in their lovely home.
