Uniquely decorated luxury-level inn

MOON TRAVEL GUIDES – At the Ashland Creek Inn (70 Water St., 541/482-3315, $230 and up) you won’t get any closer to Ashland Creek without getting wet. This small luxury-level inn is directly adjacent to the stream and has several guest rooms with cantilevered decks directly above the rushing water. Each of the 10 suites is uniquely decorated according to a theme—the Caribe, the Marrakech, the Edinburgh—and each offers complete kitchens, living rooms, private entrances, and decks. Best of all, this comfort and style is just moments from downtown shopping and the theaters.
