Family Fun in Ashland

Ashland, Oregon is beautiful and quaint. It reminds us to take a deep breath of fresh air in and let the chaos of our everyday life flow out. At The Bard’s Inn we want you to relax and enjoy this time together. Take the whole family out on the town for some well-deserved fun. Here are a few ideas to get you started.


If your kids are teeming with curiosity, this is a wonderful spot to visit. ScienceWorks is a hands-on museum that stimulates the mind through exhibits, activities and live shows. Truth be told, the adults in your group will likely get a kick out of the fun too. It’s perfect for the whole family!

Summer camps are humming along at ScienceWorks. Sarah the Bee Girl took us on a wild adventure into the world of bees…

Emigrant Lake

Approximately 15 minutes down the road, Emigrant Lake offers your family the opportunity to swim, fish, boat, water ski or simply enjoy the great outdoors. We assure you no one will complain about being bored and everyone will sleep well when you head back to the inn! With over 1400 acres of land you can spend the entire afternoon beneath the clear blue sky.  

Jackson Wellsprings

Regardless of the time of year, Jackson Wellsprings allows visitors to truly put their feet up as they take advantage of the warm water soaking pool. “Each day eighty thousand gallons of fresh water flow through the pools, so there is no need for chlorine – the naturally alkaline water allow for a natural soak without chemical additive.” They offer paddleboard yoga classes, music and workshops, or just peace and quiet for anyone and everyone in the family.

The Bard’s Inn Pool

If you don’t feel like going very far simply head over to our hotel pool! Here you can indulge in some fun in the sun, then stroll back to your room when you’re ready for some rest.
