Since my past stays at Willows Country Inn have been so over-the-top glorious, once again I brought friends along, this time my husband and couple from the UK. Not only was it a delight to show them around with hospitable Innkeeper Daniel but it was a pleasant to discover the tasteful grounds upgrades. This was my third property tour with Daniel because I always bring other for their first-time experience at my favorite bed and breakfast! As always, he was patient and kind, not in a rush. I particularly like how spacious the country grounds are and that no matter how early in the morning I rise I can find the main house open and available for coffee and reading which is exactly what I did last Monday morning. To the joy of my UK friends, before breakfast Daniel made a fire for us. Tania founds this so utterly delightful that she began to settle in for breakfast there until I casually mentioned how this might be a challenge for our server. At that point we moved over to our table to relish more beautiful views. What I most enjoyed this time was exploring the trail above the inn. This time I turned right taking the path in front of lovely homes and deciding that I simply must return in the spring in order to experience Lady Ashland in all her glory. Kara Burian gives great attention to detail; she knows how to deliver beautiful hospitality time and time again! January 2017 I plan to will return with enough friends to fill this place up.

Beautiful country setting adds a relaxing dimension to Ashland stay. Rooms have lovely views of Siskyou mountains, patios surround the pool and tumbling waterfall, service is beyond exceptional. Highly recommended!

They were very attentive and accommodating to our diet sensitivities

Beautiful facility and grounds; excellent, welcoming staff with every detail attended to. Great breakfasts in new breakfast room with views of the Siskiyous. Highly recommended for unequalled comfort and service.

Innkeepers Kara and Dan offer impeccable service, delicious breakfasts, and gorgeous surroundings. A wonderful place!

Dan and Kara invest so much in your comfort and enjoyment at Country Williws. We are planning our third visit next year.

This is our 24th year visiting this fabulous refuge for the city-dweller. Kara and Dan provide just the right touches: beautiful rooms, beautiful landscaping, a location peripheral to the center of town, and wonderful people. A find!
5 on August 14, 2016
Our first visit to Ashland and southern Oregon; the Willows made it perfect beginning with Daniel's warm welcome and helpful information for maximizing our time. The breakfasts were truly outstanding both in variety and quality. Kara was very helpful in dining suggestions and was a great source of information about Ashland in general. Will definitely repeat this trip!
4.8 on August 11, 2016
Went to OSF and stayed at Country Willows for 4 nights. Dan and Kara are delightful hosts. Our room was clean and very comfortable, and the gourmet breakfasts were outstanding. Grounds are gorgeous. Because it is 2 miles away from downtown,and tucked away it was very quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed immensely.
5 on August 07, 2016
It's always been great, but it's now the best it's ever been. Thought no improvements necessary, but the improvements have been spectacular-wow!
5 on August 03, 2016
Been going for years...always love the visit...don't like to post, because it has become too popular...only want it for us...smile...Kara and Dan are great...you can be as involved with the other quests or keep to yourselves...breakfasts are better than any of the fine restaurant's in town...secret is out!
5 on July 21, 2016
We enjoy our stay at Country Willows in Ashland. Very unique family style inn. Excellent service and cozy welcoming environment. The owners treated us (like other guests) like a family. Complimentary breakfast, cookies, tea and coffee were icing on the cake. Most certainly stay there again!
5 on July 15, 2016
Love it all...the exquisite beauty of the landscape and whole outdoor area, friendly staff and willingness to address special needs, very clean, attention to details of beauty and comfort in every room. A very special time of beauty and comfort!
4.8 on May 26, 2016
We have been coming to Country Willows for nearly 20 years. We love the cottage and the pond uogrades are wonderful. Love the waterfalls but kind of miss the geese. Breakfasts are great and very filling. Just wish the weather has been nicer since we would have had time to enjoy the pool this trip.
5 on March 02, 2016
Ashland and Country Willows are quieter in late February than during the peak summer months when I am a regular visitor. My visit to Country Willows during opening weekend of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival was simply delightful. The coziness of the public rooms were especially welcome, as was the chance to chat with Daniel, the 'assistant' innkeeper and breakfast cook extraordinaire. CW just keeps getting better and better. Attention to detail makes one really feel at home, only more relaxed!
3.2 on February 23, 2016
We had a quick overnight stay in the winter, so we couldn't use the pool and did not have time to visit the grounds much. But we loved our room and the breakfast was great. We definitely hope to stay here again when we visit Ashland. I also thought the website was much better than other B&B websites I've visited.
5 on February 03, 2016
My girlfriend and I stayed here one night last weekend, and were the only ones there. We arrived late, but the innkeeper accommodated us and even upgraded us to a bigger suite. I have no clue why we were the only ones there that night, but it could only be because it was late January. The room was beautiful, the property was quiet and serene, and the breakfast was fantastic. We definitely would stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
5 on November 12, 2015
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on our recent trip to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We loved everything about this place. We stayed in the Creekside Suite and found it to be so spacious and comfortable and we loved that it's in the barn. The grounds are breathtaking and lush. Breakfast everyday was amazing and they easily accommodated my gluten intolerance and my husband's need for espresso. We would definitely return and will recommend it to everyone.

Pleansant town with great theatre options, very limited parking. Inn situated in a very quiet spot out of town, easy parking.
5 on September 10, 2015
Peace and quiet with imaginative visually impressive breakfasts that beg you to photograph but quickly finish the plate before the picture is taken. Every year I come back to see the plays and relax at Country Willow. Hiking trails, gorgeous weather, music in the garden, charming hosts and staff, oh did mention the breakfast? Most of their guests have been coming annually, I being one! I do not ever plan to stop.
4.0 on September 10, 2015
We stayed in the Almond Room. It was just the right size and cozy. The room was nothing out of the ordinary, but the overall property was! The gardens, the living rooms, the pool area! The highlight of our stay was the 2-course breakfast. The food was fresh, high quality ... the eggs and bacon were superb! My husband and I are definitely planning to go back for a longer stay and would highly recommend it!
5 on September 06, 2015
Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, great pool and hiking trails.
4.6 on August 25, 2015
This is a wonderful B & B. The site is terrific and the hosts are great. The breakfast was unique and delicious.
5 on August 24, 2015
We stayed for 1 night but would have liked to stay longer. Lovely rooms. Host and hostess very friendly and welcoming. Very nice pool and nice hiking trails with views of surround Ashland hills. Deer in the front yard.
4.8 on August 24, 2015
My husband and I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts. Country Willows is by far our favorite of them all. The grounds are beautiful and the hospitality the best. The access to activities was so very close, yet we had a secluded location with wonderful views from the verandas. Our breakfasts were enjoyed just as much. Wish we could have stayed longer, but there will be another time!! Chip and Lourena Coker
5 on August 13, 2015
THANKS again for a glorious stay in each and every way!! We can't imagine spending our anniversary anywhere else:-) Marsha and Jack
5 on August 10, 2015
We stayed at Country Willows Inn for the 5th time. I am amazed at the updates they continue to make. The pool area is awesome with the updated waterfall and sitting area. Kara went out of her way to ensure that we had breakfast to take with us as we were leaving too early to enjoy their 'regular' breakfast. The rooms are lovely, (we stayed in the Oak Room), and the grounds quiet and restful. I highly recommend.
5 on August 06, 2015
The only reservation I have is the fear that it will be so popular we won't be able to get in. Absolutely the best breakfasts in the area!
5 on May 11, 2015
My husband and I have been making at least one annual trip to Ashland every year for the past 30 years, and we always stay at a B&B. For the past ten years we've been staying at Country Willows. It is, hands down, the best B&B in Ashland. We absolutely love it. Kara and Dan are fabulous hosts, and the grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. It's our annual "happy place".
4.8 on May 06, 2015
Thanks for the free upgrade. Best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in.
4.8 on February 28, 2015
For the first time we found the experience to be all that it was advertised to be. The property is well kept; warm and inviting on arrival. The innkeeper was relaxed, friendly, and helpful. Accommodations met all our needs with class and style. We returned from breakfast to find our room had been cleaned and restocked (to our surprise since it was so early). The food was exceptional and very pleasing to the palette. We enjoyed the feeling of seclusion and privacy so close to the city. We have already recommended it to multiple friends and will continue to do so, knowing that it will not disappoint those we recommend to.
4.2 on February 24, 2015
It was a wonderful experience, would have liked to know in advance the construction that was going on since it was right near the bedroom. I may have selected a room in the main house rather than the cottage.
5 on February 19, 2015
We came to stay for the Valentine's night. It was a nice romantic retreat: artistic decoration, cozy living room stocked with games and good books, comfortable bedding (we had the Willow Room). Next morning we woke up to find idyllic hill view right outside our window! Would recommend to any friend visiting Ashland in the future.
4.2 on November 30, 2014
Beautiful property and very friendly folks made this stay a pleasure. Value was great as well. My only suggestion is that the breakfast is served too early between 8 and 9am. We like to sleep in and relax when we stay at a place like this and it felt a bit rushed for us. Overall a great visit. We will be back..
5 on October 30, 2014
My husband and I spent our first weekend in Oregon. I came across the Country Willow In and fell in love from the pictures on the website. This is the first time the pictures actually depicted exactly what you get. It was incredible. From the room to the service to the food to the ambiance of the Inn - we are sold and will be lifers! And, we actually woke up each morning to a rainbow! Absolutely awesome experience. I advise all travelers of Ashland, Oregon to stay here!
5 on October 27, 2014
Everything was spectacular. Thank you.
3.8 on October 20, 2014
When we arrived Kara gave us an extensive tour of their facility. When we arrived at our room we were amazed at the size of it. It was quiet and very enjoyable. The only negative is the shower has no doors and the water gets in other parts of the bathroom. It would help to have a dam of sorts to contain the water. Breakfast was plentiful and very well prepared by Dan and served by Kara. Overall a very nice experience. We would return if we were in the area.
5 on October 17, 2014
We stayed at Country Willows almost 25 years ago and find it just as charming with the food even more memorable. Our stay was relaxed and restful. We will definitely come back sooner.
4.8 on October 06, 2014
The heated pool and accessible hiking trails really added a great touch to our visit.
4.8 on September 26, 2014
This is a lovely property and innkeepers are very attentive to detail.
4.6 on September 26, 2014
Breakfast was excellent!! Bed firm. Convenient location
4.6 on September 25, 2014
Daniel is an outstanding innkeeper and provides one of the best breakfasts I've had at a B&B. Great place to stay while visiting Ashland...a quiet, well designed inn but within minutes of town. Would recommend to anyone. Would opt to stay in one of the larger rooms next time.
4.6 on September 15, 2014
A very enjoyable stay. My husband and I travel a lot and were impressed by the warm and gracious service. From the gourmet breakfasts and home-made cookies, to the organic toiletries, to the cushions and lap blankets provided for our use at the local Shakespeare theater, no detail was overlooked in providing a first-rate guest experience.
4.8 on September 12, 2014
Have stayed there many times and will continue to do so.
5 on September 07, 2014
This was our favorite inn on our trip through central and southern Oregon. They excelled in all aspects - comfortable rooms, gracious hosts and staff, scenic grounds and serenity. We stayed in the cottage and had plenty of room for the two of us. We were right by the pond and enjoyed watching the geese as well as the deer that visit the area. Cara and Dan were the ideal hosts by helping us when we needed something but generally staying in the background so we could relax. Finally the breakfasts were unexpectedly outstanding. The chef is really creative and sources much of the ingredients from the spectacular garden on the premises. Finally there are great walking and hiking trails right off the grounds.
5 on September 04, 2014
This is by far one of the best B&B out there!!!! The Innkeepers always make you feel welcomed and the breakfast is always amazing. We look forward to our next stay at this beautiful place.
4.6 on August 29, 2014
We were celebrating our anniversary and finally were able to book the cottage. This is not just a room, but includes a small kitchen, with a microwave, sink and small refrigerator. This is unusual for any B & B where we have stayed. In addition, there is a fireplace and flat screen TV, and a private porch. We loved the cottage and wished we could have stayed longer than one night. But what we like most about this B & B is the beautiful country feel, with gorgeous views of the mountains, a pond with geese, and the incredible landscaping. Oh, and the visit from the deer at dusk! Kara and Dan were both really friendly and helpful.
4.8 on August 06, 2014
I found this B&B accidentally while searching for a place to stay for a weekend of theater and outdoor recreation in Ashland. This place was great! It's a little south of town and well off the main road (Hwy 99) so very quiet. The grounds are beautiful (lots of humming birds!), the bed was super comfy, the breakfasts were delicious, and Dan and Kara are extremely friendly hosts. My wife and I definitely plan on returning.
4.8 on July 26, 2014
We are first time Shakespeare Festival goers, and our stay could not have been better! Slight drive into town, but we were advised the best spot to easily park. Country Willows has a homey, inviting feel. inventive and delightful full breakfast- looking out at the hills all around. We will definitely return!
5 on July 21, 2014
We have stayed at Country Willows over the years, and it has always been our favorite place in So. Oregon. We would never consider staying anywhere else, and have adjusted our travel plans just so we can stay there. The new owners are gracious and devoted to providing the highest quality accommodations with the best service. They have achieved both! They have added a new larger breakfast room at a higher elevation on the property that allows dining inside or out and provides breathtaking views of the surrounding courntry side including the mountains to the east. The breakfast was filling and delicious! The presentation was delightful. The avialability of coffee, tea, pop, or water along with two types of cookies is another nice touch, which has been carried over from previous owners. The changes are subtle, but what has been done to the main house is tasteful. When I was originally searching for the best bed and breakfast in Ashland, I spoke with someone I know who lives in the area, and she stated the Country Willows was the best. That was over 10 years ago, and from our most recent experience, it is still true!
4.4 on July 21, 2014
A truly wonderful experience we cannot wait to go back!
3.8 on July 16, 2014
The food is amazing! The owner is a total sweetheart!
5 on July 11, 2014
This was our 5th or 6th stay at Country Willows; the first since Dan and Kara were fully involved as owners. We love this place and they have upgraded and continued the tradition. My wife has special dietary needs and Daniel in the kitchen was creative and very accommodating. Love the upstairs breakfast room with great views. Great place to relax but close enough to town to be convenient to the Festival and all the restaurants! Can't wait to return. Dave & Patty
5 on June 23, 2014
We have stayed at many B&B's and Country Willows rates at the top. The innkeepers were warm, personable, knowledgeable about Ashland and the Shakespeare Festival, and attentive to our needs. We stayed in the Willow Room - spacious, with a very comfortable bed. Although it was in the front of the house, above the sitting rooms below, it was quiet. The ground floor has 3 separate sitting rooms, all with comfy couches and chairs. Great views from balconies and the dining area. And breakfast - beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! We will return again and again!
4.8 on August 17, 2013
Country Willows is by far the best B&B I've ever stayed at. The food is incredible, the inn keepers so friendly, and the inn itself gorgeous. The inn began life as a farmhouse, and staying there feels like stepping back in time-- beautiful willows adorn the large lawn, the rooms are quietly but beautifully decorated, and geese, deer and other animals abound. Add modern conveniences like a swimming pool, touches such as cookies and iced tea every afternoon in the kitchen, and this is an oasis worth returning to.
4.8 on July 21, 2013
Twelve years ago we discovered County Willows. Nestled in the foothills of Ashland, the charming B&B continues to be a highlight of our annual trip to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. While only minutes from downtown Ashland, Country Willows is peaceful, quiet and the perfect place to relax. The spectacular country setting, gracious hosts, attentive staff, beautifully appointed rooms, scrumptious 3-course breakfasts, afternoon snacks, evening concerts on the lawn and refreshing outdoor pool are why we keep returning to Country Willows.

Stayed one night with my teenage son in a 2 story suite. Beautiful site and lovely room! Too bad it's not within walking distance of the theaters which would make it perfect. It's quiet, peaceful and private. Only complaint is the shower which is open and use resulted in almost flooding the entire bathroom floor. Also, we didn't realize breakfast was sit down, thought it was buffet so my son missed it. But he got coffee!
5 on February 23, 2013
We were treated like royalty! The room far exceeded our expectations. The property is far enough away from downtown to be relaxing as it is tucked away at the end of a road. It has the potential to be a destination vacation for those who would like to take a week to attend the Shakespeare plays and walk the streets of this quaint college town. It is eveident that the owners and manager of this B&B take a great deal of pride in it. I would like to return every year.
5 on October 11, 2012
Friendly folks, great service, incredible breakfasts, beautiful rooms, spectacular setting and views! We always stay here when in Ashland.
5 on September 11, 2012
We loved the Country Willows for its lovely interior design, the beautiful location, the very friendly and helpful hosts and the comfortable rooms. Breakfast was very good, and the proximity to the city of Ashland is great. We'll definitely come back.
5 on September 10, 2012
Loved your place, but forgot our chocolate in the fridge. Bummer. Will definitely come again. Thanks for everything.
4.6 on September 08, 2012
We had a marvelous stay in the Pine Ridge Suite. Our special needs diet was handled without any problem. The pool provided welcome relief on some very sunny and hot afternoons. Very peaceful setting and wonderful innkeeper and owners. We were treated like family, only better! Our suite did not allow pets which was perfect as we are allergic.
4.2 on September 07, 2012
We had a great stay here. It was very relaxing and everyone was so nice. Wonderful breakfast, beautiful setting. We had last been here in 2002, I think, so it was good to see that it is still a great place to stay in Ashland.
5 on September 06, 2012
Country Willows Inn was the best experience I've had at a Bed & Breakfast! The rooms, public and private were beautifully appointed, the garden and pool where fantastic, and best of all the breakfast was truly a 5 star experience! Kara and Dan, the hosts, made us feel like part of the family and exceeded my expections with their kindness and thoughtfulness. We are already planning on making the Country Willows Inn a yearly visit.
4.4 on August 28, 2012
This is a beautiful bed and breakfast very near downtown Ashland. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. It is very quiet and relaxing. There is a very nice hiking trail behind the property. I highly recommend this establishment!
5 on August 28, 2012
have stayed five times through two different inn keepers and yet it never seems to lose its charm. Lovely place. Yes it's pricy but it's worth it.
5 on August 18, 2012
Having stayed in many B&Bs, we have had ample opportunity to evaluate this type of accommodation. The Country Willows is as nice as any we've stayed in. The rooms are nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. The staff is most accommodating, ready to help with whatever one needs. Located in the town of Ashland, Oregon, home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, this inn is located about 2 miles south of the hustle, bustle and noise of the city's center. Staying at the Country Willows was like being at a peaceful retreat. Everything we had read about the inn on their detailed website was true and accurate. The Country Willows was a real find for us, as we travel to Ashland for the festival every year.
4.6 on August 01, 2012
We had a relaxing, wonderful stay at Country Willows. We stayed one night in the Hayloft Suite and the other nights in the Pine Ridge. The Hayloft suite was a bit small and nondescript, we definitely preferred the Pine Ridge Suite. Both of them had king sized beds and crazy big bathrooms with jetted tubs (the tub in Hayloft is a bit bigger). The service was outstanding and friendly. The breakfasts were excellent. Almost all the midday snacks were very good. The surroundings are peaceful and relaxing. The owners have done a great job creating little spaces all over the property for people to sit and relax. I love that type of attention to detail. With that said, there were two things that could be improved upon. For some reason, they program the air conditioning in the rooms ridiculously high. Each time of day and every day has a different setting so every time we thought we had it set, we would come back to the sauna again. The Hayloft suite, being two floors, was like a sauna for hours (the thermostat registered 89 when we got to the room at 5pm and took half the night for the bedroom to cool down). If you stay here make sure the first thing you do is reprogram all the times and days (you may need to play with the thermostats for a while to do this). The more important issue was the beds. Both rooms we stayed in had, at best, medium quality beds. They aren't even close to as bad as a budget hotel, but I wouldn't call them comfy. While they were not terrible, for these prices, I feel like they should be better. I would certainly consider staying here again but I think it's fair to warn you about the 2 minor issues we encountered while there. However, all the benefits, including the pool, location, service, food, privacy, etc. greatly outweighed these two issues.
5 on July 02, 2012
We came to Ashland for a wedding and had a wonderful stay at the Country Willows Inn. They were very helpful even preparing a delicious breakfast 'to go' on the last morning when we left before breakfast was served. Highly recommended!
5 on June 25, 2012
I have stayed at the Country Willows Inn every summer (sometime 2 or 3 times) for the last 24 years. Although the owners have changed several times during that time frame and the Inn has always been well run and beautifully maintained the current owners are truly outstanding. They are friendly, thoughtful and genuinely want everything to be perfect. And they succeed!
5 on June 17, 2012
We have stayed at Country Willows on our last two trips to Ashland to attend the Shakespearian Festival. The Inn, a former horse ranch, is located a few minutes drive from the theater venue on five acres in the Ashland hills. We enjoy the quiet country setting and the ability to walk otr our door and take a over an hour walk along well-kept trails in the surrounding hills. Kara and Dan provide excellent service, a great breakfast, and lovely rooms.
5 on May 09, 2012
My husband and I really enjoyed the country feeling of the B&B. The Inn Keepers were great and the breakfast was amazing! We will for sure be returning!
4.8 on April 09, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay at Country Willows. We stayed in the Bunk Room, which is very private and only a few steps from the main house. The king bed was very comfortable and we could see the lovely snow falling outside our windows while being cozy in the room. The hostess is very low-key, sweet and accommodating. The breakfasts were seriously the best I've had at a B & B. They are healthy, filling and soooo delicious. The location is only a few miles away from the city core and an easy commute for plays, dinner etc.
4.6 on March 07, 2012
We thoroughly enjoy our twice a year excursions to the Country Willows Inn in Ashland. The accommodations are comfortable, warm, and charming. I especially love the country setting with 1898 farm house ambiance and every modern convenience. My son enjoys playing bocce ball on the front lawn and visiting the goats and geese, while my husband reads the newspaper or checks his email in one of the luxurious front sitting rooms with views that stretch across the fields to the Ashland mountains. Breakfasts are a delicious and adventurous start to the day, and we look forward to the new dining room with its elevated view. Whether you are in the area for outdoor activities or theater, make sure you find some time to just enjoy being at the Country Willows Inn.
5 on February 13, 2012
Perfect location for touring Ashland area. Beautiful home with every amenity one could ask for. Daniel, the host, bent over backwards to ensure that every detailnofnour stay was perfect. Breakfast was fresh and delicious!
5 on November 28, 2011
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights over Thanksgiving. Everything was flawless. Daniel's breakfasts were amazing, our rooms were large and comfortable, the afternoon baked goods were always delicious, the grounds were beautiful, and we were always made to feel welcomed and appreciated. We look forward to returning to the Country Willows every time we are in Ashland.
5 on November 23, 2011
This is the perfect getaway place. Close to everything:dining, shopping, hiking, biking, movies, plays, mountains, lakes, and yet tucked away in the most picturesque location to feel like you are far from the city. It's very peaceful and relaxing to stay. The hospitality is superb. The breakfasts are off the charts! We highly recommend this wonderful home.
5 on October 28, 2011
We were delighted with our accomodations and a very nice upgrade offered when we arrived. The setting is lovely, with woods adjacent and miles of hiking trails! Easy access to Ashland venues, friendly service, and delicious breakfast entrees! We definitely recommend this inn. The fall is a great time to see Ashland--beautiful trees.
4.0 on October 26, 2011
The setting is very attractive and it is quieter and more peaceful than is the case if one stays in he center of Ashland, while still being only a short drive from the Shakespeare festival theatres and good restaurants. the room if perhaps just a bit on the small side, was very comfortable and quite attractively furnished. The breakfasts were really excellent and the co-owners and staff were extremely pleasant, helpful and hospitable (they were very accommodating when we had to make a last-minute change in our arrival date and prepared a very nice "to go" breakfast on our departure date, so that we could get an early start.
5 on October 10, 2011
Country Willows B&B is always inviting and better than being at home. We always feel welcome and that we are staying in a "home away from home". The suites are very private, clean and envelop you in a welcoming atmosphere. Whether you stay for leisure time, to just get away from it all or more vigorous activities this B&B fits the bill for everything. The owners and staff are welcoming and provide one with a very personable stay. I would highly recommend and this is the only place we stay when going to Ashland.
3.4 on October 10, 2011
Although small, the Bunkhouse was very private, clean and comfortable. The orientation by Kara when we arrived was very good and being able to drop off our bicycles and store them before check-in time was so helpful. Proximity to the Theatres was great, without being right downtown. Breakfasts were wonderful and beautifully presented. Only negative was the time it took to check-out, but realize it was a busy morning. Would most likely stay again if ever in Ashland, which I hope we can be!
4.8 on September 21, 2011
This was by far my best B&B experience ever. The setting of the inn is spectacular, the rooms are quiet and comfortable, the breakfasts were as imaginative as they were delicious, the service was gracious and unpretentious, and special touches could be seen and savored everywhere. Innkeepers Dan and Kara were warm and delightful, and even hosted a Sunday evening concert on the beautiful, expansive front lawn with wine, fruit, cheese and Dan himself as the featured vocalist and guitar player. Country Willows, in my opinion, sets the gold standard for what a B&B experience should be. I can't wait to visit there again.
5 on September 12, 2011
I've visited Ashland many times to attend the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and wine taste in the Applegate Valley and have stayed at various B&B's and hotels. Country Willows was a fabulous B&B that felt like our home away from home. Quiet, comfortable, clean, beautiful landscape and furnishings, delicious breakfasts, and a pool as relief from warm temperatures. We definitely will recommend to family and friends.
4.2 on September 06, 2011
Stayed in the Bunk Room. Very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was outstanding although you only had a 1 hour window for it (and a little late). Beautiful grounds.
5 on August 31, 2011
My partner and I had a wonderful few days at Country Willows Inn this summer -- beautiful setting, great breakfasts, hiking available from inn's backyard, lovely pool, helpful staff and excellent service.
5 on August 31, 2011
We have been staying at the Country Willows bed and breakfast Inn at Ashland for over ten years. Everything about the Inn gets better and we have never thought about staying elsewhere. We travel to Ashland, Or. to attend the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. We just returned from a six day stay at The Willows. It is an amazing complement to the plays.

This place is great..it's off the beaten path, but only about a ten minute drive to the heart of Ashland. Plenty of public places to sit, and a nice deck off the room. One of best breakfasts we've ever had in Ashland..been going there for more than 15 years. People kind and very accomodating.

We can't say enough about Country Willows. It is by far our favorite B&B (and we've stayed in many!) New owners Kara and Dan are doing a fabulous job of continuing the tradition of guest pampering and making you feel you are the most important people there. The extensive gardens are getting better and better. Sitting out on the lawn in Adirondack chairs under willow tree taking in mountain and valley views is our favorite activity (or non-activity). Relaxing is what everyone does best here. But if you want to swim, there's a great pool or hike (amazing nearby trail) or go biking. It's all nearby. Then there's the town of Ashland, an experience in itself. And the Shakespeare theater, one of the best in the country. The morning meal can keep you going all day. Farm-fresh ingredients and artful presentation are main features--hearty egg dishes, fresh fruit, veggies, country chicken sausage to name a few--all done in innovative original style. Having breakfast on the sunny porch starts the day so right. Charming rooms are cozy and furnished with custom fabrics and antiques. Our favorite rooms have decks overlooking the creek. The little cottage by the duck pond is great, too. It's good to book early, if you can, to get the room of your choice. They fill up quickly! And no wonder.....what an amazing place.

We have been staying here for over ten years now and the previous owners were pleasant enough, the new owners have brought an even better experience to this B&B. Highly recommend, off the beaten path yet close to the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland and the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, Oregon.

My husband and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Country Willows. The room was great, we loved how many places there were to sit and lounge out side of the room, from the upstair balcony to the patios to the pool. The food was excellent and I really appreciated the hour flexibility in eating time. I also really appreciated the tea and cookies that were constantly available. Overall a really wonderful experience and we will be booking with them again when we go back to Ashland.

Definitely more of an "inn" flavor than a B&B. Very nice property, easy access to hillside walking trails, good breakfasts, nice hosts. As an inn a little less inter-guest community than you get at a B&B where breakfasts are usually at somewhat communal tables. Driving rather than walking distance to theaters (but we knew that and it is exchange for the country setting).

My wife and I have traveled extensively; we have not found a better B& B than Country Willows. Our room was charming and comfortable. The grounds are spacious, lush, and well kept. The service is excellent. The property is on the outskirts of town, easy to find, and a three minute drive to city center. We give it our highest recommendation.

I loved this place. The breakfasts were worthy of any gourmet restaurant -- full, delicious, I wish I had the recipe for the cranberry-walnut quiche. Every detail taken care of with care and personal touch. Beautiful setting. Can't wait to go back.

We loved the room. The public spaces are varied and fun. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the views spectacular. There are great trails adjacent for running and hiking. The food was as good as any we have had at the several B&Bs we stayed at in the area.

Just spent a glorious thee days and nites at the Country Willows. We will return next year. Dan and Kara are the best. Daniel, the innkeeper, is very gracious. Wonderful food for breakfast, very creative, great swimming pool, terrific rooms and a welcome touch having Dan sing and play for us while we were enjoying wine and cheese on Thursday nite. You just can't miss with these people and this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Country Willows. Great hospitality with thoughtful amenities. You can tell the hosts truly want to provide their guests with the best experience possible. This was our 1st trip to Ashland and we don't feel the need to try another inn when we return. Country Willows will be our choice.

Tucked up against the mountain at the east end of town, beautiful grounds, nicely appointed rooms. We stayed in the cottage, very nice, bright, comfortable. Proprietors and staff were hospitable and welcoming. Breakfast was creative, appetizing and delicious.

This was our second stay at Country Willows and the first since Dan and Kara purchased the property. They are lovely hosts and I enjoyed our conversation since I am a B&B host as well. The garden was beautiful this year as the weather has been temperate thus far and the blooms had not yet faded. The Almond room is simple, lovely, and comfortable. Our next Ashland trip will find us at Country Willows once again as it has become our favorite B&B in Ashland. A big plus for it in mid-summer when we usually book is its gorgeous pastorale setting and that it has a pool which is great when it is in triple digit temperatures in the valley. Best of luck to you both Kara and Dan.

This continues to be the best B & B in Ashland with delightful setting and very amicable and efficient staff. Rooms are clean,well appointed and the setting on a retired horse farm at the end of a road is quiet. All this and less than 5-10 minutes to downtown Ashland. Very well planned, delicious and well prepared breakfasts complement the stay.

We found Country Willows Inn on Google and, after comparing with other offerings in Ashland, decided to give it a try. It is located on the end of the road, complete with goat, geese, frogs, woods, and stream (we couldn't see it, but could hear it). The Inn is a large home that welcomes you from the time you approach it. Beautiful landscaping, covered porch, and peacefulness greet you on the way to the front door. The keepers of the Inn are wonderful, soft-spoken, and put you at ease immediately. The room we stayed in was full of natural light with a comfortable bed and roomy bathroom. No radios, no television...just croaking frogs and honking geese (although that was quite short-lived). The morning breakfast was an apricot risotto, with peaches and raspberries; fresh-squeezed orange juice; scones; and a never-ending supply of fresh coffee. I recommend this B&B to anyone traveling through southern Oregon looking for a place to rest.

We have been staying at Country Willows Inn for about 15 years, and it has always been a wonderful experience with a great location, breakfast and hosts.

What a beautiful setting! So peaceful and perfect for relaxing. Oh and the food - puffy french toast and wonderful fruit combinations. (Good cooking, Daniel) The owner, Kara is a welcoming hostess and her husband Dan is a gifted musician who even provides concerts for the guests. Country Willows is enchanting, my new favorite place!

We love this B&B. We have stayed multiple times because it is quiet, friendly, and beautiful. Cara and Dan have brought Southern charm to Ashland.

We utilized the Pine Ridge room with accessibility features as we need wheelchair accessibility. What a beautifully designed and very accessible space. The huge bathroom with skylights and plants, a jacuzzi tub as well as an accessible shower is awesome! The suite's large room and fireplace and walk in closet are cosy and lovely and the patio in front great. I have looked around Ashland for accessible rooms and didn't find anything that remotely compared with this. The hospitality extended by the owners and inn keepers is warm and caring in every way. I've stayed here in several other rooms. It is just a heavenly experience!

The Country Willows is a very relaxing getaway in a quiet setting, yet only 1.7 miles from town. We stayed here a year ago, and it is now under new ownership. I was a little leery after I read a negative comment and got some clarification from the poster of that comment, and then I read another comment that seemed canned. So we just decided to give it a try and see for ourselves. I have to say that it was just as good as last year. We were greeted by the owner upon arrival and shown our room. Kara is very nice. Our room was clean and ready for us. Last year we were upgraded due to light attendance and not upgraded this year, but we reserved the Oak Room, too, and that’s where we stayed. If I gave any recommendations to the new owners, it would be to pay attention to the little details like smudge on mirrors and dusty stair light fixture, and things like that, but those are really no big deal. Breakfast was fantastic, and I think the innkeeper’s name was Dan, a very friendly gent who cooked up a nice spread of French toast, awesome bacon, fresh fruit, a fresh fruit smoothie, and assorted beverages. The former owners were maybe a little more charismatic, but I think the new owners are just as friendly. They may even be trying to copy how the Country Willows was. Be yourselves and let your B&B develop your character. If you are looking for one of the best Bed and Breakfasts in Ashland, give Country Willows a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Our three night stay was really a treat ! Everything was better than expected, and much better than any other stay we have had in Ashland.

Great last minute reservation. We booked only 24 hrs in advance and received a 15% discount. Beautiful secluded grounds.

My wife and I stayed at this B&B on our way to and from our daughter's wedding in Hood River and were very happy with our choice. The inn is under new ownership with Dan and Kara Burian at the helm and they are doing a terrific job. The location, while only about 10 minutes from the heart of Ashland, provides country solitude and a lovely pool. Dan, a physician, is an accomplished singer and guitar player, and if you are lucky to be there on the right day, you will be treated to his talents while sipping wine and eating snacks on the lawn. Kara and Dan and the staff can't do enough for you. One morning we had to leave before the breakfast hour, so they packed a great assortment of food for us. The rooms --- which are spotless --- vary in size and bathroom configuration, so you should talk to the Burians if you have special desires. By the way, the breakfasts, replete with fruit concoctions, rival five star hotels. We travel great deal and consider Country Willows Inn high on our list.

We stayed in the Pine Ridge suite and it was perfect. The Innkeepers helped us celebrate our second anniversary and we definitely be going back.

We loved this place! We stayed in the cottage, with its own private porch, near a lovely pond filled with personable geese and surrounded by weeping willows. The main house, a lovely old farmhouse, was a welcoming place and the owners, Debbie and Chuck, were delightful, friendly people. We came to the area to pick up a rare musical instrument and they had us entertain the guests after breakfast on our last morning, which was very special. There are trails and birdwatching and photography oppotunities galore and Chuck is quick to pull out a map and tell you all the highpoints of his obviously beloved community. The breakfasts are outstanding-all organic and home grown feasts prepared in a gourmet fashion in a blue and yelow sunroom. A wonderful stay-thank you Debbie and Chuck! We'll be back.

Stayed at the lovely Country Willows Inn over Super Bowl weekend 2007. Chuck did an outastanding job making our stay a truly wonderful experience. Don't miss this place!!
