To commemorate the plaza redesign for Ashland Oregon, the City is throwing a champagne party at 5:00pm on the (you guessed it) the plaza. The party will coincide with April’s First Friday Art Walk, during which the city will also bury the 100-year Time Capsule.
Artist Sue Springer’s ceramic frieze will have been installed as the latest Ashland Oregon public art piece. She is also known for the Peace Wall installed in front of Ashland, Oregon’s library.
Gotta love Chanticleer Inn guests!
While taking a reservation, I glibly asked for a limerick about her little dachshunds, and here’s what I got:
There once were 2 dachshunds so naughty
One pretty and sweet, and one haughty
Come here said their master a little bit faster
but they couldn’t their legs were so shorty
Lucky me for creative, fun visitors to the Chanticleer Inn!
Chanticleer Inn: a deer nursery!
It’s fawning time in Ashland. A doe left a fawn at the front door — literally on the Chanticleer Inn B&B’s porch.
Mother deer will leave the fawns in order to browse and feed, and will later return to them.
Most of the time, the fawn is safely sequestered in tall grass or under a bush. Being so new fawns have no scent for predators to catch a whiff of, and the spots help camouflage the baby. The deer in Ashland are so accustomed to humans, they leave them on sidewalks, in alleys, and now apparently at front doors.
Travel Video and Blog of Chanticleer Inn in Ashland Oregon Bed and Breakfast
Travel bloggers, Chris and Tawny produced a video of their stay at the Chanticleer Inn in Ashland Oregon bed and breakfast. View the video here.
I truly enjoyed hosting Chris (aka the Captain) and Tawny. For more of their trip in Ashland, check out their blog! Chances are we’ll see more of them and their work as they are planning to return to Southern Oregon later this year.
Well, this is a Chanticleer Inn first. I have never shared a guest book entry, but I’ve never had a guest pen a limerick either.
Of the lodge keeper all know as Ellen
We find ourselves practically yellin
How she runs this great inn
(Nothing comes from a tin!)
How she does it alone,
there’s no tellin
Exclusively for the Chanticleer Garden…
The unending quest for the best ways to amend soil and feed plants in the Chanticleer garden has taken ‘au naturel’ organic to a new level.
Some friends bring a bottle of wine, some might bring flowers, but truly thoughtful friends consider what is most important to a hostess, those friends, of course, bring cow manure for the Chanticleer garden!
Exclusively for the Chanticleer garden, meticulously gathered, carefully packaged and labeled, and specially delivered from the lush green Roseburg, Oregon pastures. Just the thing to warm the cockles of a gardener’s heart!
“That’s No Bull!”
Captain and Clark (aka, Chris and Tawny) charted their course to Ashland Oregon last weekend. They stayed at the Ashland Chanticleer Inn and rafted the Rogue river with Indigo Creek Outfitters.
I thoroughly enjoyed hosting them and wish that they will return to explore more of Ashland Oregon and its surrounds.
Here is Chris and Tawny’s blog entry about their first and hopefully not their last visit to Ashland Oregon and running the Rogue.
Mornings are a little different at the Chanticleer Inn. This season we start serving Noble Coffee in a new way. In the past, we only brewed organic shade-grown coffee, that has not changed! The difference is Noble Coffee roasts their beans locally (just a few blocks away) and delivers them fresh to the inn.
This spring, I attended “Coffee 101″ seminar by Jared, owner of Noble Coffee Roasting, in which I learned much about the chemistry of coffee and recommended processes to brew a better cup of joe. After some experimentation, purchase of some equipment, and rave reviews from my springtime guests, Noble Coffee will be the “usual” at the Chanticleer Inn.
