We needed a place to stay in Ashland that would allow a dog, and we found this cottage that's run by the people from Abigail's Bed & Breakfast Inn. It's right next door to the B&B and they bring over breakfast on a tray each day. The cottage has 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed with it's own powder room, one with twin beds, and then the main bathroom with a full shower is off the hallway between the bedrooms. There's a full kitchen, a dining area, and a living room with recliner, couch and tv. It was warm when we were there so we ended up running the AC or fan much of time, which cooled the place down nicely. I would describe the overall accomodations as comfortable without being fancy. You are about a 5 block walk from downtown and theaters, and there are nice wide sidewalks the whole way, so you can leave the car behind at the B&B. We spent one day driving through the old gold-mining towns in the area and it was a great way to spend the day - especialy interesting and evocative were the Stirlingville Cemetery from 1863, the ghost town of Buncom, the historic town of Jacksonville (the downtown has been designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark) and the Jacksonvile Cemetery.
