Just 15 miles from the border with California, tiny city Ashland is surrounded by the beautiful Rogue Valley, so that it looks a bit like a Swiss hamlet; cosy, by a shimmering lake and fringed by snow-capped mountains. If the name doesn’t ring a bell it may be better known to you as the home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival - which runs for nine months of the year. If you’re here for the festival then the best places to stay in Ashland will probably be one of the classic hotels or upscale B&Bs.
As well as the festival, Ashland has a buzzy downtown with nice boutiques and restaurants, in the cooler months people come to ski and there are a couple of very good wineries nearby. If you want to see more than just the festival then the best places to stay in Ashland might be a bit further out of town.
