I have lived and worked in this wonderful town for 30 years. I bought this home in 1986 with the dream that someday I would turn it into a travelers accommodation. Over the years I have carefully remodeled and restored this 1900 cottage and I welcomed my first visitors in 2008.
Lois Van Aken purchased this house in 1986
What I love about this property is its close proximity to the heart of downtown, the coop, and the park while still maintaining a quiet, natural setting. All are within 3 minutes walking distance so you can leave your car parked in the driveway for days.
In addition to the pleasing home and proximity to downtown, you can sit outside on the porch or on the patio and enjoy the beautiful gardens surrounding the home with the green mountains in the background.
My husband and I have stayed in this perfect cottage and adore it. It was already booked for that weekend so we stayed in Lois' new Alley Cottage. It was as wonderful as the Central Avenue Cottage but on a smaller scale. It felt like home and worked well for three of us. There is one bedroom and an additional futon in the living room. All was lovingly appointed and well supplied. It has a charming private deck that is perfect for post theater discussions and morning coffee. It is great for two and good for more as long as they are comfortable with sleeping in the living room. A precious little jewel. We will return to it whenever we can.
My husband and I visit Ashland annually and discovered Central Avenue Cottage three years ago. We've been back with friends every year since. The cottage, surrounded by a lovely garden, is delightful. It's cozy and comfortable, is situated within easy walking distance of the theaters, has a charming living room with good reading lights and a sun-lit breakfast room. Lois thinks of everything to make our stay there easy and effortless, including a well-stocked library and kitchen. We've already made our reservations for next year.
We are just back from a wonderful 3 night stay at this cute little cottage. It was absolutely perfect for our party of two couples. The proximity to the theatres, downtown and the co-op were so convenient. While the quiet street and beautifully maintained garden gave sitting outside a lovely, secluded feeling.
Can't wait for our next visit to Ashland so we can stay here again!!
We loved staying in the cottage. Lois was helpful in sharing special "local places" especially for hiking and outdoors activities. The walk into town is short and easy.
The cottage is clean and well-maintained and stocked with all we needed.
The photos were an excellent representation for what to expect.
We would recommend this listing to any of our friends or family.
Comfortable, extremely clean cottage that is perfect for two couples. An easy walk to downtown and Shakespeare venues. Well stocked kitchen and lovely gardens. I would recommend this property.
The four of us (two couples) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the small cottage. Not only is it fully furnished, it is beautifully decorated and well-maintained as reflected in the photographs. It's in walking distance to downtown Ashland and the theaters, the Ashland food co-op, restaurants, and shops. We prepared several meals and were all delighted with the accommodations and would recommend the place highly.
