We knew we would be treated special at the Chanticleer Inn starting from our first e-mail exchange, when after making our reservation, our hostess asked about our child's milk preference (Skim, 1%, 2% or Whole) and than shortly after we received another e-mail asking if he could have homemade hot chocolate. Right away we knew our needs and preferences were important to our Innkeepers. And their great service continued when we arrived late at night. We were warmly greeted and promptly shown our lovely garden level room which was all ready for us to snuggle into. We felt as if we had arrived at a friend's house, which was especially comforting after a 9 hour drive and a sleepy child in our arms.
In the morning, we awoke to wonderful smells of a mixed berry fruit cobbler and great coffee. The breakfast continued with a savory egg asparagus frittata and yam slices - Yum!. Ellen and Howie (our Innkeepers) joined us at breakfast . Our conversation was engaging, upbeat and filled with interesting tidbits about the area.
The Inn is in an ideal location. You can park your car at the Inn and never use it again until your departure as all the attractions that downtown Ashland has to offer (Shakespeare Theatres, Restaurants, Shopping, Lithia Park) are just a short walk away.
The Chanticleer Inn is what we look for in a Bed and Breakfast,- beautiful, clean, warm, great food and hosts that very quickly feel like old friends. This was our first visit to the Chanticleer but it won't be our last.
