In relation to the thirty other B&B properties we have stayed in over the years, Touvelle House ranks among the very best. It is a place where everything seems in its place and even the most perfectionistic of personalities can relax and enjoy the surroundings. My complete review is longer, but B&B.com only allows reviews under 2,000 characters, so you may want to google to find out more specifics. But the bottom line is that from the warmly decorated and expansive home to the amazing owners/innkeepers, a stay at TouVelle House is not to be missed if you are in Oregon. Staying at TouVelle was worth every mile of the commute to/from Ashland, and it was quite a value given all of the amenities and delicious breakfast. To give you an idea of how much I enjoyed my stay, I planned to stay just for one night, and instead I ended up adding on three more nights!

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. We absolutely loved it! The breakfast was amazing, there were homemade chocolate chip cookies in the evening, its a close walk to downtown, the common areas were nice (we enjoyed board games in the library and microwave popcorn), the pillows and bedding were super comfy, there was a huge overhead showerhead in the bathroom, bottled water and York peppermint patties on every level... I could go on and on. Very nice B&B.

Everything about the place was wonderful, EXCEPT the ever present, overwhelming smell. If you like air freshener, it won't bother you. If you are sensitive to scents, stay elsewhere unless you like headaches. I ended up unplugging all the 'air fresheners' on my floor, but it was still overpowering.

This is the best bed and breakfast we've ever stayed at. The owners were so welcoming and hospitable, and had such great attention to detail. They took notice of the little things - the first morning my husband asked for ice for his coffee, so come the second morning, they had a cup of ice already set out for him by the coffee. There are fridges on each floor always stocked with bottled water, which was great because it's hot there in the summer! So close to walk to the Britt Festival, and they also have Britt-approved chairs at the B&B you can use for free. The saltwater pool was a highlight - perfect temperature, so clean and refreshing. Didn't try the sauna but that's a great amenity as well. Lastly, the food was to die for. Each morning was a 3-course breakfast, and absolutely delicious. We'll return to Jacksonville simply to stay here again!
