Lovely and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciated the thoughtful touches that were put into this property. The place was clean, warm and in a nice neighborhood. I felt very safe walking to downtown, just ten minutes away. Val was available but not invasive-- a perfect host.

Would definitely stay here again 😊

Great spot to be...

  • 5 of 5

Our 4-night stay with Ashland Guest Cottages was exactly what we hoped it would be. The accommodations of the Garden Cottage are newly and nicely finished. Downtown and the theaters are within easy access. The setting is quiet and the outside garden is developing nicely. We would be most happy to stay there on our next visit to Ashland.

Oasis in the midst of busyness

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this comfortable and beautiful place while I was in transition moving back into the valley after being away. It was heavenly to come back each day to this oasis after a busy day so I could rest and regroup. There's a full size refrigerator and easy to use appliances to cook meals with. It felt homey, quiet and safe nestled into this little complex of cottages. Val is a wonderful hostess ... friendly and very responsive to my needs. I would highly recommend any of the cottages in this little "neighborhood" to visitors or residents of the valley that need temporary housing. Loved it and will be recommending to friends and relatives from out of town. Ashland downtown is within walking distance for plays, art galleries, music venues, shopping or long walks in the park.
