Another Limerick from a Chanticleer Inn Guest


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!

Baby Fawn at the door of the Chanticleer Inn


At the door!

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.

The fawn is just left of the door in the corner.

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.

Chanticleer Garden


Exclusively for the Chanticleer Garden…

Manure for the Chanticleer Garden

Only the best 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 Visit Ashland Oregon


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.

Noble Coffee now served at Ashland Chanticleer Inn B&B


Noble Coffee  Roasting  in Ashland Oregon

Noble Coffee Roasting in Ashland Oregon

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.
