Our recent stay in Ashland, Oregon did not leave us wanting. Well, that’s technically not true. We actually wanted to extend our stay. We had so much fun in the charming little town that we are already making plans for our next trip back.
The Chanticleer Bed and Breakfast played a key role in making our Ashland experience one of dreams. Between its savory breakfasts, charming innkeeper, and relaxing garden, we weren’t sure if we would be able to tear ourselves away.
The Chanticleer, a beautiful 1920′s Craftsman inn is located just a few blocks from Ashland’s main city center. The Chanticleer boasts six comfortable rooms, each with a full bathroom en suite. A gourmet multi-course breakfast is served daily with cookies, tea, and port available at all times.
Ellen, the delightful Chanticleer innkeeper, is as good as they come. She makes her Chanticleer guests feel welcome and comfortable and is a wonderful resource for all things Ashland. Her breakfasts will win your heart, but her delightful company will keep you coming back.
Breakfast at the Chanticleer Inn is an experience in and of itself. The multi-course meal will be sure to spoil your taste buds and keep your hunger satisfied well until lunch. These gourmet breakfasts are prepared by Ellen, who learned to cook from her time in France. Breakfasts are served alongside fresh organic coffee, fruit juice, and tea.
A sample menu of what one might expect for breakfast at the Chanticleer:
- Roasted Almond Figs and Pears
- Spicy Blueberry Muffins
- Shitake Sherry Mini Frittatas
- Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Sausage
If you have any dietary restrictions, be sure to let Ellen know in advance and she will be sure to cater to your needs. The Chanticleer respects any food allergies and restrictions.
While the town of Ashland offers an overwhelming amount of activities, the best place to relax and regroup is the Chanticleer garden. If the scrumptious gourmet breakfast and comfortable rooms don’t sell you, the breathtaking garden surely will. You can take a nap in the hammock, admire the variety of blooming flowers, or watch the koi fish swim lazily around the pond. Ellen calculated enough garden seating so that all of her guests will have their own private chair, if they so choose.
If you enjoy people watching, grab a handful of the freshly baked cookies and rock yourself on the porch swing. Dandelion, the neighborhood cat, is a regular at the Chanticleer and will be sure to give you a warm (if not furry) welcome.
Bloggers and businesspeople alike will be pleased to know that the Chanticleer offers free WI-FI to all of its guests.

While the Shakespeare festival may seem to be the main attraction, Ashland offers a variety of activities that cater to every member of the family. Dine in some of the finest restaurants Oregon has to offer, shop in the local boutiques, or take in some of the surrounding nature with a hike or bike ride. Our recommendation? Spend a day on the water with Indigo Creek Outfitters. Their rafting trips on the Rogue river are not to be missed.
