“Hidden Mt. Gem 30 minutes from Ashland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2008

I have stayed here several times in the past few years when I've come to Ashland for Shakespeare or in the winter to ski. I've come with 1 other person and I've come with 4 friends. I almost don't want to tell people about this place for fear that I'll have trouble getting a reservation. This BnB is a renovated barnhouse that is quiet, beautiful, serene and a much cheaper alternative to staying directly in Ashland. Its located near Mt. Ashland, directly south of Ashland, about 20-30min drive into Ashland .

There's no TIVO, no TV and no high speed internet access, so if that's what you are looking for, you should find another option. If you are looking for a homey, comfortable, breathtaking mountain retreat surrounded by trees and wildflowers, this is the place. The website has plenty of pictures but its hard to tell just how spacious this place is-it can sleep at least 4 comfortably, with rooms on several levels. It is so quiet and a plethora of songbirds are the only noise I heard the last time I was there-in fact, just about every time I've been there. There is a train that goes through the valley at most once a day, but I slept through that two of the three days I was there so that should tell you something about how loud that is-I am not known as a deep sleeper either.

The innkeeper is very friendly, accommodating and gladly welcomes children. This is great for families or couples. I am so glad I stumbled on this place when I couldn't get a reservation in town.
If I had to sum it up in one word, I say its "idyllic"-assuming you want to commune with nature and to get a way from TV and the internet etc.

  • Liked — The surrounding natural beauty-trees, stars, meadows, deer, birds
  • Disliked — The wood stove-necessary in the winter and more work than I'm used to
  • Stayed July 2008, traveled as a couple
