I came to Ashland Oh for an unhappy event, the passing of my beloved Grandmother. I called in at 11 pm and was greeted with a smile( i could even feel it on the phone) and saftley guided in personally by the lovley inkeeper herself! With my reasoning said it would be hard to enjoy anywhere, but truly it was an amazing experience. I felt my spirit uplifted by the innkkepers and thier family(two ADORABLE twin boys). I darinly asked if "K" could make breakfast for my extended family as well as for me in the Am and she thought nothing of it. Its hard to believe that because it was spectacular! Again this was 11 pm.I again asked the impossible and requested that the party joining me for breakfast could stay the night, again greeted with a "no problem"! Let me be clear here i understood it would be at the going rate, but on such short notice...she is truly amazing.
The next day I had the pleasure of meeting her husband "J" and thruought our stay he ground FRESH coffee beans in the am, and was as attentive to every detail as her. ( he even shined my boots and my cousins before our departure)
Again, I raised the possibility of yet another impossible task due to the weather. "Would you be interested in throwing a lunch in honor of my grandmother?" Also greeted with a "no problem." She threw together..or so she said a few things that made everyone pleased, full, and wanting more. Ablizzard arrived in the midst and again the team of four (twins included) helped dig out cars get elderly up stairs and even challenged my cousin in a game of scrabble! For such a tiring sad event it was a magical place to be.
I came home to my husband and own children with a piece of them, they are a wonderful couple/family and it just radiated through the house. I apologize for the lengthy review, but it was necessary to give back to these gracious hosts that made my stay memorable in only the best ways!
We plan to bring the whole family back in the summer for a visit, I just hope by then there is still room!
