About Adam and Susan Lemon
We are originally from Zimbabwe and fell in love with Ashland, Oregon whilst on an RV Trip. Abigail's crossed our pathway a few years later. We have both worked in the hospitality industry for many years and have traveled extensively using vacation rentals throughout. We have taken measures to ensure that our Vacation Cottage is completely up to our stringent standards. Comfort, cleanliness, furnishings, information about the area etc. are what we look for when searching for accommodation and therefore we have endeavored to supply all. We are active members of the Ashland Lodging Association.
Adam and Susan Lemon purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Adam and Susan Lemon chose Skidmore Academy Historic District
Ashland has the unique charm of a small town community with the cultural sophistication of a large city. The beautiful Rogue Valley offers the visitor everything from outstanding live theater to white water rafting on the Rogue River. With nearly 60 wineries in the Rogue and Applegate Valleys, wine tasting is a popular past time for visitors to the area, as is fine cheese and artisan chocolate tasting. Ashland offers fine dining experiences one would expect to find in large culturally diverse cities. Ashland offers the best of the best!

Beautiful Cottage/Belligerent Manager
Our visit to Ashland was ruined by the property manager.While we tried to abide by instructions to smoke away from the cottage, it wasn't far enough for the manager. His handling of the situation was reprehensible....stomping around, threatening and pugnacious. I've stayed at dozens of VRBO rentals over the years and NEVER had a complaint nor a run-in with a property manager. During his tirade, I stayed calm and assured him my family would be far away from the property line if they smoked. Evidently, this wasn't good enough as he continued his grumbling. After heading back to the main house, I saw a squad car pull up and the manager leaning in the window. I didn't know what to make of it, but guess he felt smoking near a house is a criminal offense. I do not recommend this cottage to anyone (smoker or not).
With regards to you, our guest it would appear that you did not mention that you were in violation of our policies. We have experienced that sometimes as property rental owners, guests who are in violation of our policies will more often than not, write a negative review about their stay. Fortunately we can rely upon past reviews and logic to inform future guests as to the truth. At the time of discovery I reported the violation to my vacation rental site. Our policies protect not only ourselves but our future guests. With respect we do not allow the smoking / vaping etc. or storage of certain items on our premises or within 10ft of the property. This is clearly stated in our policies.
Upon your arrival you were required to both read and sign acceptance of our terms and conditions clearly stated on our Check In form. You both read and signed acceptance of our terms and conditions at that time. Only on day two did I noticed the pungent odor of smoke whilst putting our trash cans out for collection at the back of the property. I knocked on the door, which you answered and politely requested that you confirm that you were not smoking on the premises. I then again politely, requested that you remove the pungent smelling items to your vehicle for storage as it is very difficult to remove odors from our rental that may in turn affect the next guests. I then returned with our check in forms to show you, your signature of acceptance of our policies. These were the only two interactions I had with you over a four night stay on the matter. I did however note that you had removed the item to your vehicle for storage and did not pursue the matter any further. We did not terminate our rental agreement with you at the time - although subsequently our OTA suggested that we should have done so. With regard to the appearance of a Police car, that was coincidental as they were there purely to check up upon a reported parking violation. This is on public record I would imagine. The fact I spoke with officer had nothing to do with you our guest. In my opinion if you were concerned then you realized that probably were in violation of our policies. I would also like to confirm that my wife and I are the owners of this lovely old property and not the managers. We believe in ensuring that our guests have the right to privacy but at the same time be cognizant of the fact that this too is our property and subsequently it needs to be maintained for our future guests.
Friendly helpful hosts, clean peaceful space, added value: snacks, games, information and resources.
Great place to stay and enjoy Ashland's Festival of Lights!

My family very much enjoyed the Abigail's Cottage.
Thank you for your review of our Vacation Cottage.
Abigail's Bed and Breakfast Inn is a short 15 minute walk into the center of downtown Ashland and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Theatre. Ashland, is perfectly situated in the heart of Southern Oregon and offers an abundance of year-round activities with an award wining growing wine region. The Rogue Creamery Cheese Festival takes place in March in Central Point as well as The Chocolate Festival local to Ashland. The Ashland Independent Film Festival comes to town in April and our growing Culinary Festival takes place in November. Fancy something more exciting then try white water rafting with Hellgate or Indigo Creek Outfitters on the Rogue River, kayaking on Emigrant Lake, water play at Lake of the Woods, snow skiing at Mt. Ashland, or bicycle the Bear Creek Greenway and take a day trip to Crater Lake National Park to name just a few. There are also nearby golf courses, horseback riding and guided fishing trips.
The Hellgate Jet Boat experience is based in Grants Pass, just 45 minutes north of Ashland. Nothing beats an afternoon trip down the river finished off with an amazing dinner at the OK Coral.
Downtown Ashland offers the finest in boutique and antique shopping, excellent casual and fine dining, art galleries, glass blowing, brass rubbing, farmers’ markets, the Varsity Movie Theater, the Oregon Cabaret Dinner Theater and of course the theaters of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Don’t forget to take in the natural and peaceful beauty of Lithia Park, a 93-acre park right in the heart of Ashland. Stunning hiking trails surround our small town. A growing wine region offers a great selection of Viognier, Temperanillo, Pinot Noir and so many more. Our valley wineries such as Weissingers Family Winery, Belle Fiore, Irvine & Roberts, Eliana, Dana Campbell and Grizzly Peak to name a few are all within a 10 to 15 minutes drive of Abigail's.
