Oregon boutique inn close to festivals, recreation

Halfway between San Francisco and Portland, the 10 luxury suites at the Ashland Creek Inn gives guests a first class base camp to experience the famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival and explore wonders like Crater Lake in its backyard. Once just a tiny timber town, Ashland was transformed into a top tourist destination thanks largely to festivals like the Ashland Independent Film Festival in the spring, the Britt Festival outdoor summer performing arts celebration and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Also, the Inn is under a day trip from outdoor recreation like Crater Lake, river rapids, top-rated ski runs and an extensive wilderness trail system. (http://www.ashlandcreekinn.com)
