honestly, i don't know what the fuss/negative reviews are about. my husband, myself, and our little pooch stayed for 3 nights in the "eisenhower suite" and had a fabulous time. this was in the carriage house, which is a separate house about 20 feet from the main inn. carriage house has about 6 or so suites. room was spotless, great bed with fresh linens and tons of pillows, a very much welcome 2person jacuzzi tub in the corner of the bedroom, gas fireplace, private porch with 2 person swing, separate bathroom with shower, flat screen tv in separate sitting area with dvd player, etc, etc.
innkeepers glenn, ingrid, and pam were very helpful about area activities and quite gracious.
the town of ashland itself is not that spectacular, though the common man restaurant is pretty decent and only a five min. walk. there is also a common man store, which has assorted new england knickknacks. the town is close to both the mountains and the lakes, so a good jumping off point. it was only a 20-30 min. drive to the major hiking trails at franconia notch.
there was a movie cabinet of dvds with surprisingly up to date movies. round the clock cookies available. nightly wine and hors d'ouvres.
i would definitely recommend this inn to anyone. an added plus is that they are dog-friendly.
