We visited Ashland for the first time a few days ago, and were very happy to land at the Albion Inn. The innkeeper, Cyd , is very friendly and happy to give each guest a tour of the house. She makes delicious snacks like sesame cookies, provides sherry for later in the evening, and makes great breakfasts like the blueberry/lemon dutch baby we had our first morning there. There is also a tea bar with instant hot water that helps relax you after a day of hiking, visiting the village or attending one of the many plays that Ashland is know for. The Chautauqua room is very nicely decorated and has a most comfortable queen bed. One nice feature of this B & B is that the entire house is set up for the guests, with a reading/sitting room, a TV room and the dining room. The innkeepers stay in a cottage on the property. Lastly, we had very stimulating conversations at breakfast with most all of us participating, thanks in some part to Cyd's vitality and genuine interest in her guests. We plan to stay there next time we visit Ashland.
