Quoted rates are for June–September; expect prices to drop around one-third outside the summer high season. Ashland’s high cost of living is reflected in the rack rates of the town’s accommodations. Nonetheless, there’s generally something to be found to meet the needs of most every budget. If Ashland’s prices seem too high, you can find less expensive rates in Medford, a 10-minute drive to the north.
The warm traditions of Britain are represented in Ashland not only by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival but also by the town’s numerous bed-and-breakfasts, the most of any locale in the state. Many B&Bs require a two-night minimum stay during summer. The Ashland Bed and Breakfast Network (800/944-0329, www.bandbashland.com) can help you find quality B&B lodgings in town.
