We come to Ashland each June to see the plays, but a large part of our enjoyment of this week is staying at Arden Foest Inn. We almost consider it our home away from home. The hosts, Bill and Corbet make breakfast special: Bill's food is wonderful, with a first course of abundant fruit platters, followed by a creative and generous breakfast entree, accompanied with homemade biscuits or rolls. We all sit down togetherat the table, and conversation is always fascinating, usually beginning with the plays we've been seeing, but often ranging to many other topics. Though people are, of course, free to leave when breakfast is over, many stay to talk for a long while, for Corbet and Bill care deeply about the theater and easily build a feeling of community around their guests.
Our room is spacious and restful as is the garden with its gazebo, where we often sit and read. The theaters are a fifteen minute walk, another benefit of this inn. This is the best place to stay in Ashland!
