So here we are--social innkeepers engaging in a little culinary tourism in Ashland Oregon as part of our Annual Meeting of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. We started the day with touring some wonderful Ashland Oregon lodging facilities: Ashland Springs Hotel, Winchester Inn, Chanticleer Bed & Breakfast, the Romeo Inn, Albion Inn, Shrew's House Bed & Breakfast, the Ashland Royal Carter House, Oak Hill B&B and Country Willows Inn Bed and Breakfast.
Most of these inns were withing walking distance of downtown Ashland. Can you imagine innkeepers trooping through the neighborhoods of Ashland in the rain and sometimes snow?
In the afternoon, we began our Epicurean tour of Ashland restaurants at the Ashland Springs Hotel with samples of Organic Nation's Gin and Vodka accompanied by duck confit from Lark's, a restaurant located within the Ashland Springs Hotel. Yum!
Other restaurants on our Epicurean tour included samplings from: Zoey's Cafe, Tease, Dragonfly Restaurant & Gardens and Standing Stone Brewing Company. Everything was tasty and fresh. As says Pat from Oak Hill B&B, "We're so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful restaurants!"
