We absolutely loved visiting the Arden Forest Inn and plan to stay there every year we visit in the future! Bill and Corbet were fantastic Inn Keepers and honest theater critics as well. It is a beautiful place perfect for relaxing and feeling like you're at home when you're not at home. Not to mention the most delicious breakfasts and the taking of special requests from a 3 year old! I can hardly wait to go back and I cannot stop telling friends and family about this place! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. If you have kids, room two separates the kids into another space with 2 bed...

Double your fun while in Ashland. Stay at Arden Forest Inn (AFI). My wife and I have been spending 1 or 2 weeks there every year since 1990. If you like comfortable surroundings and delicious breakfasts, stay at AFI. If you like great conversations about theatre, movies, books, or other unlimited fun topics, stay at AFI. If you want to meet new people and gain new friends, stay at AFI. The innkeepers, Bill and Corbet, will astound you with their intelligence and their humor. This is THE BEST destination in town and you will want to return year after year. We just love AFI. Can you tell?

I've been coming to the festival for 15 years and have stayed at Arden Forest nearly all of those years. There have been times when I couldn't stay at Arden the whole time and have had to book part of my trip somewhere else. So I can tell you, on those days/nights, I long for Arden Forest. The other inns are always nice but there's something so special and unique about Arden Forest. I get my best sleep ever there. I feel so relaxed just walking into the inns gorgeous gardens. I love the pool and the beautiful setting. Breakfasts are to die for! The innkeepers are lively and entertaining. Going to stay there is like going to visit family...the good ones:-)

This is a B&B we intend to return to the next time we visit Ashland. The serene atmosphere, the beautiful gardens, the comfortable rooms, the fabulous breakfast with interesting guests, and above all the hosts who made our brief visit so special make this a highly recommended B&B.

This was our 8th stay at the Arden Forest Inn for the Shakespeare Festival Plays. Every year just keeps getting better. We feel that Bill and Corbet, the hosts, are family. They make outstanding breakfasts and stimulate fun and intelligent discussion at breakfast. Our group from Salem takes 3 of the 5 rooms, and we have become close friends with the other guests that come on the same weekend to stay in the other 2 rooms. The rooms are exquisite, the grounds are beautiful, and we love the swimming pool area. We have already reserved our vacation time at Arden Forest next year! We love the walk to and from the Plays--it is the perfect walking distance to work up an appetite for the fantastic restaurants in Ashland and to stretch the legs before and after a play. We park our car and walk the entire vacation. This venue is the Best B&B we have ever stayed at, and this Vacation is our favorite year after year! Cheers and adulation to Bill and Corbet. They have created an enchanting masterpiece!

We come to Ashland each June to see the plays, but a large part of our enjoyment of this week is staying at Arden Foest Inn. We almost consider it our home away from home. The hosts, Bill and Corbet make breakfast special: Bill's food is wonderful, with a first course of abundant fruit platters, followed by a creative and generous breakfast entree, accompanied with homemade biscuits or rolls. We all sit down togetherat the table, and conversation is always fascinating, usually beginning with the plays we've been seeing, but often ranging to many other topics. Though people are, of course, free to leave when breakfast is over, many stay to talk for a long while, for Corbet and Bill care deeply about the theater and easily build a feeling of community around their guests.

Our room is spacious and restful as is the garden with its gazebo, where we often sit and read. The theaters are a fifteen minute walk, another benefit of this inn. This is the best place to stay in Ashland!

Room Tip: We like room #5 best, but all the rooms are quiet and restful.

Prior to staying at Arden Forest Inn we visited several other B&B's in Ashland, but none compared to the wonderful experience that our hosts Bill and Corbet provided. Accommodations are very comfortable, clean and well maintained. Communal breakfasts are a daily highlight as the food is consistently outstanding, and is coupled with lively conversation providing knowledgeable insights into the current theater offerings, as well as other interesting topics.
An easy walk to OSF and downtown, AFI has a peaceful private garden and gazebo, perfect for pre-theater gatherings, and a small pool in the back to enjoy.
We often stay in unit 2, upstairs in the main house, which has two separate rooms that can easily accommodate 3-4 people. We have traveled from Portland to Ashland twice a year for the last 6+ years and AFI has been our #1 accommodation of choice.
We highly recommend Arden Forest Inn to all our friends.
