Just got back from a week at McCall House. We've been going to Ashland every summer for 10 years, but this was our first stay at McCall House. (The place we usually stay was booked by the time we made our plans this year.
We've stayed at a several B&B's over the years, in Ashland as well as elsewhere, and this is one of the best! Nola, the owner/innkeeper, is warm and welcoming and also very professional in her approach to running her B&B. And you can't beat the location, especially if you're in Ashland to attend plays at OSF. It's 1 1/2 blocks from the theaters!
Kelly's breakfasts are absolutely delicious, although quite rich. We opted for oatmeal a couple of mornings which was perfectly prepared and plentiful. Breakfast is served at 9 am. Nola rings a small handbell to invite everyone to be seated at the same time at several small tables.
The decor is charming. Rooms are beautiful and well-appointed. We stayed in the Carriage House North & South. Both rooms are equipped with a small refrig and microwave which is very convenient. Nola is always looking to see how she might make improvements and confers with her guests for feedback and suggestions.
We REALLY appreciated the useful information posted in the dining room: breakfast menu for the following day (with oatmeal as an option if you inform them before 8 am); weekly weather forecast; weekly OSF event calendar; other local info, e.g. July 4 parade and activity schedule.
Nola's whole staff is outstanding. Housekeepers Janet & Herman are a charming couple who go the extra mile to be of service to guests. They have been working there for 8 years, which says a lot for them as well as for Nola. Linda, who works on Janet & Herman's days off, is helpful, friendly and efficient.
People who stay at McCall House return year after year and make it their "home away from home".
