Abbott’s Cottages

If you’re looking for an alternative to a hotel, a cozy B&B, or a room at an inn, you will definitely enjoy staying at Abbott’s Cottages. This collection of mostly 2 and 3 bedroom accommodations (there is a single studio option) offer visitors a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Ashland on their own schedule. Over the years I have stayed in each of the three  (the studio, 2 bedroom, and three bedroom). Each unit offers a nicely appointed space, comfortable bed, kitchen (full size in the three bedroom, smaller in the other units).

Located on the north end of town, just off the main thoroughfare and surrounding a lovely courtyard, each unit also has a vine-covered outdoor seating area where you can enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. It is surprisingly quiet (and you may be visited by the local cat, a friendly boy who will graciously accept your skritchins and then catch lizards for fun). The three bedrooms even have upstairs balconies to enjoy.

The Cottages are very clean and comfortable with air conditioning, wifi, cable, and barbeques. Julia and Mark Roupp have been the owners for many years now, and although they aren’t on site, they are just a phone call away.

No pets, no smoking, they don’t take credit cards, and a deposit is due with your reservation.


Highly recommended.
