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 😊

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.

excellent place for one or two in Ashland

  • 4 of 5

Our experience was quite wonderful, and Val is highly-organized and welcoming. This is a very convenient place to stay, with an easy walk to the plaza and theaters. Everything was in working order and well-maintained. The cottage is small, but efficient and doesn't feel cramped at all.
