Abigail's B&B is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Ashland. The hosts, Abi and Patti are exceptionally nice and friendly, and Patti's breakfast was definitely worth waiting for. They were very accomodating when our arrival turned out to be later than we had planned, even though they had to go out that evening themselves. There were all kinds of goodies waiting for us, including homemade cookies and tea or coffee. The room was much bigger than I had expected (we were in the Abigail Alcott room) and very nicely appointed. It is a nice touch to include the history of that room's "Abigail" in a binder in the room. The location on North Main Street is a little too far from the theatres to walk to a play, so expect to have to deal with downtown parking. I also would have preferred the option of an earlier breakfast (9:00 am was the only option). We had intended to get on the road earlier, however, as mentioned before, it was worth waiting for. Seating was family style, since there were only 5 of us in the main building. However, if there were more guests, there were other small tables in the breakfast room to accomodate separate parties. We definitely would stay here again, on our next trip to Ashland.

We stayed 2 nights for the Shakespeare festival. Our hosts Patty and Abi were so gracious and helpful. Wonderful breakfasts! They printed out a day trip for us to Crater Lake which was fantastic. Comfortable rooms, standard cable on a nice HDTV. Downtown is an easy 10 minute walk to the festival grounds. The burger place across the street was easy to get to and we had a really good burger. The hosts offer many special touches including afternoon treats and refreshments around the clock. Highly recommended!

Do yourself a favor and book a room at the Abigail! Patti and Abi treat you so well, so welcoming and helpful. Not only that, they make you one of the best breakfasts you will ever eat. Our room was soooo comfortable and quiet. If all this wasn't enough, Patti bakes you a special treat in the afternoon. Cold drinks and other snacks are available for free 24/7. It took us only 10 minutes to walk to downtown and the plays. So, you can park your car and relax. We left the Abigail so relaxed and well fed and eager to return next year when we are in Ashland again. We travel a lot and this has to be one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. Thanks again to Patti and Abi for making our trip so enjoyable.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review, we greatly appreciate your kind words and we look forward to your return visit, soon.

We spent two lovely nights at Abigail's Bed and Breakfast on a quick weekend to Ashland to see a couple of plays. We chose it because because the website said it's a 10 minute walk to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and it actually seemed a little quicker than that. The home is beautifully decorated complete with a welcoming front porch straight out of Martha Stewart … lots of comfy wicker sofas and armchairs … a great place to spend a peaceful evening with a good book. Abi's passion is gardening, and it shows in the lovely yard that surrounds the house complete with birdbaths, rock walls and garden benches. We stayed in the Abigail Rockefeller room which was beautifully decorated with antiques from the late 1800's and a 4 poster bed. Everything was sparkly clean with new carpets, paint, wallpaper and bedding. We were delighted with the breakfasts provided too. The first day we started with poached pears in cream sauce followed by a yummy quiche and chicken sausage. Abi kept our coffee cups full throughout the meal. We had forgotten to let Patti know that my husband is allergic to chicken sausage. So on the second day, we were delighted when she thoughtfully brought our plates filled with chocolate chip pancakes, maple syrup and turkey sausage. Abi and Patti were warm and friendly hosts and made us feel very welcome. We could tell they really enjoy what they're doing. We'll book again on our next trip to Ashland and highly recommend it to anyone who plans a visit there.
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us, thank you for your kind words. Our front porch is indeed a very special place and many of our guests enjoy the comfort of relaxing there. We hope you will visit us again soon.

We stopped in Ashland for two days on our honeymoon...what a delightful stay we had! Hersey House is a convenient walk to thee Oregon Shakespeare Festival and truly feels like home. Patti and Abi made sure we were well taken care of. We especially loved getting to know our fellow guests at breakfast (which was quite tasty). We'd gladly recommend HH to family and friends!!
Thank you for your kind words. We are always appreciative when guests take a few moments to post a review and it's very good to hear you enjoyed your stay at Abigail's. Please, come again soon!

Adam and Susan Lemon
Having lived in Zimbabwe our move to America made Adam and I combine our strengths. With Adam having been a Corporate man and myself a Chef and in the Hospitality Industry for many years, this seemed to be a perfect opportunity for us to showcase our passion for professionalism and people. As for Abigail's - it was love at first sight. Ashland, Oregon meets all our needs and more.

The Hollandaise sauce is unique to Susan. That alone with the creamy, nutty avocado and thick cut of applewood bacon topped on a light fluffy waffle elevates food to another level.
