A Birthday Trip To Ashland, Courtesy Of Tina

My sister Tina treated me to a delightful trip to Ashland, Oregon for my birthday. We had such a wonderful time!
The first night, we had the pleasure of staying with some friends at their home in Shady Cove, and the following two nights, we stayed at this gorgeous place:
The McCall House Bed And Breakfast in Ashland - isn't it fabulous?
Pretty marigolds outside our door:
We were in the Carriage House, located back behind the main house.
It was really, nice quiet and comfortable:
A nice, autumnal welcome at the front door:
One of the front parlors in the main house is seen below:
The yard was so pretty with fall color:
We enjoyed our stay there immensely. The breakfasts were wonderful too:
 ....... and we enjoyed our conversation with our table-mates so much the first day that we were wanting to linger longer!
Oh, and we even had sherry in our room to enjoy in the afternoon.
Such a beautiful place:
One night we had dinner at Martino's, which was pretty much right up the street. I had the Scampi and it was utterly delicious. In fact, I ate too much because it was so good I didn't want to leave any and we couldn't take it with us.
 Every place we went was within walking distance, which was certainly convenient! It rained  only once, and we just took our umbrellas with us - no problem.
I tried to get pictures of the great Halloween decorations they had inside the restaurant:
My photos don't really do it justice:
Last of all today, here is the solution to the "mystery" I posted on October 16th. The reason why I was reading the book?
We went to see a production of "A Wrinkle In Time" based on the novel!
We were incredibly impressed at the caliber of the imagination and creativity that was used to bring this fantastic story to life on the stage.
It was spectacular:
We LOVED it.
Thank you, Tina, SO much!

You are welcome dear sister! Thank you so much for this post. It brings it all back, the feelings, smells, the delightful breakfast conversations, the crazy damp hair. Your photos of the inn are gorgeous. Just loved "A Wrinkle in Time", the play. I wish I could see it again and again! Love T

I haven't been able to comment on any of your posts for quite a while due to some major family things going on so I was quite surprised to check out your blog today and see you show the McCall House in Ashland. My mom and I were coming home to Medford from Yreka today and I decided to take a more scenic route instead of the freeway. We just happened to drive past the McCall house and we both commented on how much we liked it. Did you get a chance to visit Lithia Park? The fall colors were gorgeous today.

Wow that B&B looks utterly beautiful. I love the parlor room. It's funny how all the USA bloggers post about's not really something we get into much here in Australia. So much we miss out on! Xx
