Tales from Nightingales – Latest Issue

Guests, Friends, and Family,

The years of the pandemic are, hopefully, coming to a close, and I’m happy to say, Nightingales is back in business. Oregon Shakespeare Festival has returned. Yay! Check their website for availability. I and three other volunteers from Tudor Guild rewrote the Backstage Tour and we are absolutely thrilled to announce that our new Campus Tour is in full swing and receiving rave reviews, not to mention that we’re having the time of our lives being docents. You can purchase tickets online or at the OSF box office.

The wineries are offering concerts by local artists. Britt Festival is showcasing all sorts of musical venues. Jacksonville shops and restaurants are popping. Our wonderful restaurants—Kobe, Martinos, Cucina Biazzi, Osteria La Briccola, Lark’s, Agave, among others—are open and have lovely outdoor seating as well as indoor. Cabaret has a fun-filled season going through New Year’s. They now have a full bar and offer an amazing dining experience. Don’t miss our other local theatres: Collaborative Theatre Project, Rogue Theatre Company, and Camelot.

In addition, Ashland offers hiking, biking, walking in our beautiful Lithia Park, Rogue River trips, and shopping. Something new this summer are history and art walks. Check out walkashland.com for Peter’s schedule.

Here at Nightingales, you’ll see some big changes. Darrell single-handedly built a beautiful garage, a large deck, and fenced the yard. I wrote a book, The Diary of an Extraordinarily Ordinary Woman and Her Rather Eccentric Sister, available through Amazon, your local bookstore, and here at Nightingales. I’m currently at work on two other books, I Remember Dale, and the first in a mystery series, The Court Reporter Always Gets the Last Word

As a reminder, our amenities are wine and snacks nightly; coffee, tea, pastries, fruit and yogurts available throughout the day. We’ve upgraded our rooms with all new linens, and Paintbrush is sporting new window treatments. And, I just added a darling new lamp to Lily.

Due to the high cost of everything, we’ve increased our room price for the first time in five years. This year we’ve also gone to a two-night minimum with no deposit. Book your reservations as soon as possible, and be sure to book any other reservations you may want in Ashland, as well, including wineries. B&B’s and restaurants are rapidly filling up, and events are frequently sold out. Frankly, if you plan on visiting Ashland in 2023, I would advise you to book now. We are entering into the Roaring Twenties. People are anxious to get out and have fun. I’ve ordered my Flapper dress, and I’m ready to party!

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
