Stayed 2 nights in quiet residential neighborhood (no road noise from Main St.), enjoyed location and room as well as use of common room in main Craftman style home furnished with comfortable seating, free computer use, complimentary hot beverages and cookies. Easy walk to downtown area for restaurants and theatre. Breakfast is served to you with no choices. Typ. American style breakfast with sausages, bacon, white flour waffles, egg dishes, muffins or cake, and always good coffee, tea, orange juice and fresh fruit. Nice touch with real maple syrup and local fruits.

Ashland is a special place and Cowslip's Belle B&B makes our twice-yearly trips like coming home. Long-time owners Jon & Carmen are wonderful hosts & great cooks. We look forward to breakfasts not just for the ample offerings, but for the company of congenial and intelligent fellow guests. We particularly like the townhouse suites, complete with kitchens and private fireplaces. Since its just a short walk to the theater and downtown shopping and restaurants, once you arrive you have no need for your car. Recommended without hesitation.

In business 25 years, under the same owners, we highly recommend Cowslip’s Belle
as our favorite Bed and Breakfast! In the last 30 years we have stayed in a variety
locations including hotels, motels and other B & B’s before discovering Cowslip’s
Belle. This B & B is conveniently located but three blocks from the Shakespeare
Festival, the downtown shops and numerous eating establishments. Avoid the
inconvenience of trying to park any closer to the theaters.

If requested, there are some handicapped accessible rooms. (We speak from
experience! We traveled to Ashland with another couple on one occasion. Just
before we left, he had an “unplanned accident” and was unable to get around on
foot. We were able to exchanged our handicapped accessible room for their suite
up stairs! They rented a wheelchair from the local drugstore and he was able to
enjoy the plays - as planned.)

The breakfasts are a wonder - varied and delicious. Hosts Carmen and Jon create
and serve the meals together and as the gracious hosts that they are, circulate
between kitchen and breakfast table participating, as appropriate, in the
conversation. When they have been informed of any special dietary needs, they
happily accommodate such requests.

Here’s to Jon and Carmen and Cowslip’s Belle!

We just spent 5 nights at Cowslip Belle and found it a great B&B. The rooms were comfortable and charming, they had a peaceful and relaxing yard and the proprietors were great hosts. To top it all off they made a wonderful breakfast every morning. In addition to being helpful with restaurant and other recommendations, the hosts were flexible and accommodating (e.g. preparing breakfast early one day when we were going to go rafting). One of the reasons we chose this B&B was the location (just a short walk to the downtown area and theaters) which was wonderful, but we would go back and we would recommend it based on the hospitality of the proprietors, the tasty breakfasts and the comfortable rooms.

We stayed in the Rosebud Suite which was in the main house, but still private, quiet room (with private bath, main bedroom with king bed and small sitting room with couch/day bed). We were traveling with friends who stayed in the Love in Idleness Room, which is in the building that used to be the carriage house (but has been updated)...when we peeked in to see their room we found it lovely and they said it was very comfortable.

This is a prime location for a gentle walk to the theatre. The innkeepers are warm upon arrival and eager to please and often use their Innkeeper clout to make last minute dinner restaurants. They are delightful people who enjoy the lively breakfast discussion and often join guests for engaging play reviews or book reviews or travel tips as they, like many of their guests, enjoy the delights of travel.

The sherry in the charming rooms is a nice touch. After the evening plays we're always delighted to return to the B & B to be welcomed by hot tea/coffee and fresh -baked cookies!

It doesn't get any better than this!

We've been staying at Cowslip's almost since we started coming to Ashland and have occasionally had to stay elsewhere when they were full. We always come back!

The breakfasts are wonderful and varied with home-made muffins, fresh fruit, great coffee, and then of course - the main course! My favorites are the dutch babies but their waffles with home made maple-nut sauce are amazing too. They even manage to cook around the many food allergies that we have.

The rooms are always perfectly comfortable, clean, and inviting. The truffles on our pillows every night are just icing on the cake. They have smaller rooms and larger suites that can be rented as vacation rentals but then you don't get breakfast - what's the point?

They are a short walk (5 minutes max) to downtown along the main street which has many cars on it. So, we go up the street one block and then over the creek by footbridge to the back of the plaza. It makes a perfect morning walk as you can then cross over into the park. Don't miss the park! It was designed by the same architect who did Golden Gate park in San Francisco.

My husband and I have been staying at the Cowslip's Belle B&B twice a year for over 20 years. The rooms are well appointed without being fussy and the breakfasts are delicious (juice, fruit, pastries, and an egg entree or waffles/pancakes). Jon and Carmen Reinhardt have created an atmosphere of convivial and interesting conversation at the breakfast table where we have enjoyed visiting with a variety of guests over the years and always hope our "paths will cross again." The hosts are helpful but not intrusive--you have your privacy, but they are there if you need assistance. We also love the fact that the theaters and most restaurants are within walking distance. When we arrive at the Cowslip's Belle, we are tired and stressed, but when we leave, we are always refreshed and relaxed. In summary, we love the Cowslip's Belle B&B!
