“Great room, great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Our stay at The Shrew's House made our trip like more than just a quick weekend getaway. We felt special and pampered. We also felt pretty smart for having chosen to stay there! We had an extremely clean, private and comfortable room and bed, stimulating conversation with other guests and the hosts, and great food served al fresco. Ronna and Corren were so warm, gracious, friendly and intelligent. They know a lot about the plays and enjoy discussing them. A swim in the pool was delicious in the heat of the late afternoon to cool off before dinner. The house is a short walk from the theater and restaurants. After watching a play it felt good to stroll under the stars back to our room, talking about what we had just seen. We feel like we hit the jackpot when we chose The Shrew's House to stay in.

We had the most wonderful experience staying at the Shrew's House Bed and Breakfast. The place was very clean and well appointed. The host and hostess were warm, engaging and incredibly helpful. There was a full hot, delicious breakfast every morning. They went out of their way to accommodate my husband's food allergies. This place even has a very clean, pleasant pool that we took advantage of on the hot summer afternoon. Our room had a small fridge and kitchenette so we could put in cold drinks and fruit and heat up a cup of tea. Shrew's House is close to the Shakespeare Festival and if you are ambitious, you could walk there. This is the perfect place to stay in Ashland. Hope we get to come back soon.

Room Tip: There are only 4 rooms to choose from. Our room, near the pool felt very private. All have their own...

We stayed here before the present owners, and enjoyed the privacy of the unit. Ronna and Corren have done an exceptional upgrading of the rooms, adding to the comfort and attractiveness. We were in the smallest unit, yet it met all our needs and had a big bathroom. They are like old friends, full of fun and interesting conversation. They welcomed comments, and when I sent a suggestion later, they lived up to their claim. Yes, the pool is small, more a dipping pool, but that is most welcome in the heat of Ashland summer. Good air conditioning too.

This is the perfect spot for people who want complete quiet, no creaking of steps or noise from the next room, as well as a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

We loved everything about The Shrew House. Sitting outside in the sun eating breakfast was wonderful. And coming back to the pool after watching a play was a great way to end the day. We look forward to making The Shrew House our first choice in lodging in Ashland.

Ronna and Corren were fantastic hosts, making us feel immediately welcome in their comfortable and friendly bed and breakfast in Ashland, Oregon. We felt completely at home as they are genuinely interested in creating an atmosphere where you feel at ease - as if you've known them for years. They went out of their way to make sure that my dietary needs (gluten intolerent) were met with delicious breakfasts and specially prepared oatmeal bars - yum! They generously let us include our daughter, who wasn't staying there, come for breakfast one morning. When we had to leave early on departure, they packed us a special "picnic" breakfast to take on the road. We are looking forward to returning soon!

The Shrew's House is an incredible find. We were immediately welcomed by Roger, the friendly feline greeter and Ronna and Corren our superb hosts. The very clean room was just right with a comfortable bed, tasteful decor and a great jet tub. All rooms are to the back of the main part of the house and the street noise is minimal. The pool was heavenly and warm and what a surprise bonus for a B & B! The 6ish block walk to the Shakespeare Festival was very nice although I suppose some might find it far. My friend and I found it perfect after sitting through a play. Bread pudding with fresh fruit and sausage was served for breakfast and we enjoyed the conversation of the guests and the great stories offered by Ronna and Corren. It was fun to share impressions of the plays with others. I had e-mailed them only one day prior to our arrival to warn them that I was a vegetarian and they graciously served me a delicious veggie sausage patty. I was very sad not to stay longer in order to enjoy the pool and the lush grounds more. We hope to return next year. I would highly recommend this B & B.

We only had one night to spare, but wish we had had more. The hosts were most accommodating regarding our dietary (vegetarian) request. It was also great that they joined in the breakfast conversation and made it feel like a meal among friends. Our room was beautiful and roomy, with a sitting area, a very comfortable king bed, even a small refrigerator and microwave. The property is on the main street through Ashland, close to restaurants and theater venues. (We didn't hear any street noise at night, though.) We will return!
