About the property

Two Bathrooms, King And Full Beds, Craftsman Charm

The Ashland Cottage is a spacious 1.5 bath two-story studio with king bed and pull out sofa bed. Perched behind our 1920s Craftsman home in a lovely historic neighborhood, the cottage is located just two blocks above town and within easy walking distance of Lithia Park, Shakespeare theaters and the downtown plaza.

We value connection with our guests and encourage you to call anytime with questions: (541) 326-2846

The downstairs living area provides a full bath with deep tub, gas fireplace and a pull-out couch with double mattress, while the upstairs bedroom includes a half bath, ample closet and drawer space and a king bed with quality linens. This beautiful vacation abode features cathedral ceilings with spectacular, wide views of the Siskiyou Mountains. Alley access provides a private entrance and dedicated off-street parking.

The Ashland Cottage is a guest house and shares a large backyard with our residence. The cottage offers both privacy and connection, whichever supports your preference and schedule. Many guests, especially children, are drawn to play and explore in our idyllic backyard. Our free-range chickens, curious cats and large trampoline offer endless amusement. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing the magic of this special town.

Wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Cute, clean, convenient, comfy! The cottage & host were amazing. Margaret was extremely attentive (but not intrusive) by email and text. Her directions for reaching the cottage and for logistics within the cottage were stellar! (Little labels on everything were SO helpful!) Downtown was a short (but steep) walk past other lovely homes. The cottage itself had everything we could have wanted- a stocked Keurig, Amazon tv, room to sprawl out on the floor and color! We were only in town for 3 days, so we did not avail ourselves of the lovely grill and deck; it definitely beckoned! Our 7 year old traveller said it best, "I wish we could stay for 10 days!" Highly recommend!!

A wonderful cozy cottage, with owners whose attention to detail will make for a memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing cottage that is clean, modern and beautifully furnished. The layout of the cottage makes it feel spacious, and was perfect for our stay with two adults and our daughter. It’s proximity to downtown make it ideal for a walking and yet removed enough for peace and quiet.

First and foremost, we found Margaret to be very welcoming, making sure we knew how to locate the cottage, and that we had all that we needed during our stay.

The cottage itself is very warm and cozy. It was immaculate, and the bed is very comfortable.

It is also very close to downtown. Would definitely return and would recommend a stay at the Ashland Cottage to anyway.

Lovely cottage near the heart of town

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cottage with private entrance. We stayed five nights and loved walking through the beautiful neighborhood into town each day (about 12 minutes for us to the OSF theaters). Lots of windows with views of the trees that surrounded the house. Upstairs there's a nice view of the hills. Nicely appointed.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Our cottage is newly built, yet constructed with the same Craftsman charm as our 100 year old residence. It is a special place in a special town. Thank you for the warm review.
