BAD TASTE *B -N- B*

Ashland House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Bad Taste *B -n- B*

*Make your own bed--n--*Fix your own breakfast

Comfortably furnished in eclectic "thrift store" (see something you like? make an offer!) this unique, three-story, non-smoking vacation home, nestled in the mountains 25 minutes from Ashland, sleeps eight in beds, or more by arrangement. The "barnhouse" is filled with light from the many varied windows, each of which affords stunning views of the surrounding five and one half acres, backed by "endless" BLM/National Forest Service Land.

Relax by the wood stove, read from a library of books published before your time. No tv, no computer. Just Peace and Quiet (except once a day when the train goes by, and that's an EVENT!) "Family" meals available. And a playhouse for the kids!

Off Mt. Ashland Ski Road 20 minutes from the Ski Lodge. Hike or cross country ski (in winter!) to your heart's content along the railroad track, or wander on miles of the BLM/National Forest Service Land. Just 2 miles down the road sits an authentic Tibetan Buddhist Temple with a lovely Statue Garden containing a 35' beautifully hand-painted Buddha with the White Tara on one side and the Green Tara on the other. The Garden is open to the public. Special tours of the Temple by arrangement. From the end of February to the end of October the Oregon Shakespeare Festival provides live performances in 4 different theaters in Ashland six nights a week.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The BadTaste *B-n-B* is indeed a funky place. Sock knobs replace some door knobs, aluminum foil fills old barn floor cracks and some finishing details have been deferred. The house was a barn built in the 1930's,

converted inside in the 1970's, so it is lacking some professional touches.

However, the place has served dozens of families with children of all ages. No parent has ever complained.



The road is a county well-maintained gravel road which serves as an alternate route in case I-5 is closed at the Summit for any reason. In the summer there is dust, which is a nuisance if one is used to paved roads and highways. It is plowed regularly when there is snow in the winter.



The Barnhouse is unique. That is part of its charm. Some of the windows and doors were salvaged from the historic hotel that was built up Colestin Road in the late 1800's. It was converted indoors by a young couple with a great imagination. The views from all directions are magnificent. We do our best to make it enjoyable for everyone.

Barnhouse

  • 4 of 5
This house is located on a beautifully situated property that includes a meadow great for viewing deer, elk, raptors, and smaller birds such as wrens and hummingbirds.

The house itself needs serious TLC, but the floor plan is interesting and unique.

Allow plenty of time to get into Ashland, as you must traverse almost four files of extremely curvy and dusty dirt road before you get to pavement. Then you have several miles to go before getting into downtown.

DO NOT bring toddlers to this place.

If you and your family are interested in a unique experience amidst a beautifully forested area and do not mind the long haul into Ashland, give this place a try.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but the place is not for everyone.

A great get away

  • 5 of 5
I met up with family that I havent seen in years, because of Military. The plase was AMAZING!!! everywhere in the house is unique and has its own flare. You will love the quiet and the view is great. Mouna is a wonderfull she gave me a military discount and welcomed my family as if her own, my girls just loved her. I look foward to doing this every year.

Great retreat!

  • 4 of 5
Discoveries abound.
If you are looking for a step away from your every day and wish to escape the busy-ness of town, consider a stay in the Colestin valley. Nestled in a small historic community, views and wildlife surround you. Fun details decorate the inside, in summer, outside seating expands your options. The Barnhouse is spacious with cozy areas to relax, read and ponder. A well-stocked kitchen encourages you to cook in and enjoy the creative space with friends and music (love the record collection!!) Forget the need to travel into town, take advantage of where you are.
Gracious Host!
Great stay with family.

Charming unconventional and affordable lodging in beautiful Siskiyou forest woodland setting

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I along with two adult children were looking for a reasonably priced roomy place to stay during our visit to Ashland. If you can appreciate and maybe even relish the unconventional then the Bad Taste Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place to stay for a few nights or an extended visit to this area. The "Barnhouse" is set in a lovely meadow of native grasses and wildflowers on a five acre tract of mixed conifer and Oregon oak forest where wild turkey and deer can sometimes be found in the meadow. We found that it took us about 45 minutes to get to central downtown Ashland but we likely take the curving mountain roads a bit slower than the locals. The gracious owner of the property, is very adept at finding unique and interesting objects from thrift and second hand stores and using these in a most artful manner to decorate her Bad Taste B & B. In fact, she told us that, this is how this unusual name was derived. My wife during our stay also discovered that in addition to her artistic talents she also has healthy sense of humor as her guests may discover.

In this three level home there are books stashed everywhere on dressers, in nooks, and on shelves, all vintage second hand and most likely there is something on every subject imaginable. What most delighted us however was Mouna’s wonderful vinyl LP music collection and the high quality phonograph system. Her record collection spans many genres, most we found being from the 60’s through the 80‘s and most were in very good condition. The “sitting or reading room” where the records and many of the books are shelved is located on the second, or middle, floor of the home. The acoustics we noted are superior and due to the open design and airy floor plan the music is crystal clear and equal in sound level throughout the house. During our stay we enjoyed listening to classical, jazz, and some of the pop music from our era including some very vintage Carole King. The other highlight of this charming place is the natural light that illuminates all corners of the home from the many windows. This light adds ambiance, a sense of comfort and beauty. We had a wonderful stay at this charming home in the woods and hope to return soon.

Second Stay and Still Loving It!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the Barnhouse and we absolutely love it. It's a great place to relax. It is away from everything and quiet, has lovely views, and is simply charming. The Barnhouse has a great collection of albums covering all kinds of music...very fun to play and turn up the volume. You can see Mouna's humor in the nick nacks around the house placed there for the curious. We had our two dogs with us and loved having the meadow right there for them to run around in. It is a great launching pad for some local adventures with lots of hiking trails, etc.

We yearn to return!

  • 4 of 5
From the moment we drove onto the property my family and I were enchanted with this lovely house tucked away in the forest. We went inside and found delightful furnishings and an abundance of light in most rooms. There was scope for the imagination to be found in every room and especially out of doors. We particularly liked the balcony with an oversized papasan chair that overlooked the most charming of meadows. My dog bounded about with glee. I adored cooking in the well stocked kitchen so close to the dining table full of family members at play.
We did have some challenges during our stay but the graciousness of our hostess, Mouna, and wonder of our surroundings made it all worth it. I am planning a return trip soon and look forward to building more memories with my family at this very special place.
Note: Mouna went above and beyond as a hostess.
