Ellen loves sharing the Chanticleer Inn B&B, a premier Ashland Bed and Breakfast, where she and her staff strive to provide a welcoming, restful and joyous guest experience. Before being an innkeeper, Ellen had a career in the Silicon Valley. The quality of life, with its culture, the arts and surrounding natural beauty, is the main reason for selecting Ashland, Oregon. Ellen is active with the Ashland Bed and Breakfast Network, she manages to find time to play tennis and pickleball, hike, attend performances, and of course, garden. For over 17 years, she has lovingly been the mistress of the oldest continuing Ashland Bed and Breakfast. In the Spring of ’16, Ellen published her second breakfast cookbook Recipes Are Like Pearls … lovely, but not useful until strung together.
