My sister, a mutual friend and myself stayed at Second Wind during the 4th of July holiday. Words can't truly describe what a pleasurable experience it was! Mark and Kelly are two of the kindest, most gracious people you could ever hope to meet. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. Kelly served something new and different for breakfast...

We so enjoyed having you back again! And thank you so much for your kind offer while you were here. We appreciate you caring and friendship. Plus I have to add I'm so glad you enjoyed our silly animals...you never know what's around the next corner with them. Little Ruby now thinks she Houdini. When people ask what good are...

We first visited second wind for our honeymoon and it was wonderful. It really is a wonderful, quiet little get away place. The food was amazing, I don't even have the words to describe what a wonderful cook Kelly is. They also have horses and donkeys, goats and as an animal lover that just made the trip even better. We...

I recommend you stay elsewhere. Our "suite" slept 8, with only one toilet! The room was dirty, mold in the bathroom and dust everywhere, including on the towels. We had to make up the fold-out bed ourselves. Breakfast was not ready at the time specified--behind a locked door. That could have been a good thing: breakfast was such we went...

We stayed at Second Wind Country Inn B&B last week. The food was great and getting to know the host and hostess was special. They take excellent care of their guests and property. It was an absolutely experience.

We were in Ashland for the Whistle Stop Marathon and couldn't have been happier with the this little treasure! It was so clean, quiet and only about a couple minute drive from downtown Ashland. The food and the morning conversations around the breakfast table were great! Mark & Kelly - thank you!

We spent a long weekend at the B&B for a family gathering. The owners were very nice and accommodating with the needs of a large group with kids. Facilities were great. Setting was quiet and peaceful. And the kids, and adults, loved the animals. We were close enough to the lake, via a short drive, that we were able to...

We read reviews and booked room One Month before travel. But after 4 hour driving, when we (whole family, including baby and senior) arrived 9pm, the owner didn't show. We called and were told our room was sold to someone else. Unbelievable! This is not the way of doing business.

This was a terrible experience for us too. We were very sorry we were not able to accommodate your family but we were glad we were able to make a connection for you to find a very pleasant lodging experience just a few miles from our inn. We were saddened that after the ping pong of communications we could not...

We stayed here while attending a funeral in nearby Washburn. The inn is just a few miles outside of town about a five minute drive.

Loved our stay at Second Wind B&B. The room was super clean and just what we were looking for. We stayed in the Bear Den room and wished we would have booked it for longer. The setting is very relaxing and the hosts are wonderful. Breakfast was delicious and Kelly and Mark were wonderful company. Can't wait to come back.
