I have lived and worked in this wonderful town for 25 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.

WE LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
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.

DELIGHTFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
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.

EXCEPTIONAL AND A GREAT VALUE!

  • 5 of 5
Central Avenue Cottage is part of Ashland's Historical District. Its friendly neighbors greated us as we walked to the plaza, Farmers' Market, nearby theatres, eateries and Lithia Park. The grounds provide a beautiful environment enhanced by the view of surrounding trees and mountains. Cleanliness, comfort and courtesy are the earmarks of our too short stay in Ashland. The kids loved the Science Museum, white water rafting, and a tour of Jacksonville. We can't wait till next summer to relax, laugh, smell the cedars and greet our new friends again. Staying at the cottage was a wonderful life changing experience for all of us. Thanks, Lois and Anna!

THE CENTRAL AVENUE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The four of us, in Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, enjoyed the cottage as our home base. It is beautifully restored and set in lovely gardens. The cottage offers all one could want: comfortable furniture and beds, a remarkably well equipped kitchen and pantry, space to be together and apart. We were especially appreciative that it felt like a place someone lived rather than a B&B with all the requisite frills. We wanted for nothing. It is conveniently located on a quiet street within walking distance of all points of interest in Ashland. We look forward to another rendezvous at the Central Avenue Cottage next year.
