PRIVATE STUDIO HOUSE WITH ZEN-TYPE ATMOSPHERE CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN PLAZA

Ashland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Street Entry Building Sleeps Cozy 4 in good queen bed & futon. Garden option.

This charming studio cottage has unique privacy and its own street entrance. It is located on the perimeter grounds of a vintage house built in 1884. The property’s interior gardens are developing into a healing sanctuary. The owners are yogic body-mind healers in private practice.

Originally a mechanics garage built in the 1930’s, this 400 sq ft building was completely renovated in 2012. You’ll discover bamboo floors in the spacious main room, an entry lobby with coat & shoe caddies, a tiled shower, and a cozy kitchenette (microwave, toaster oven, mini-fridge/freezer). The mini-split HVAC keeps the space at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. There is Wi-Fi for your connection convenience.

Lhasa House sleeps as many as 4 people: two upon the queen-sized pillowtop Englander bed, and two upon Ikea’s queen size convertible sofabed. Sheets are 300+ thread count organic cotton. Towels are thick and plentiful (3 per person).

Lhasa House’s soothing interior is supported by personally gathered artifacts and breathtaking photos from Lhasa, Tibet. There is ample, safe curbside parking right in front of the door.

Lhasa House is located 4 blocks north of Downtown Plaza, the heart of Ashland. From this hub, everything you need for entertainment, dining, and shopping is around you.

Lhasa House is around the corner from a south-bound Ashland/Medford bus stop and a block north of Ashland’s Youth Hostel.

Ashland’s Natural Food Coop is a beautiful 5-block neighborhood stroll through the historic Skidmore Academy District. The Breadboard Restaurant (breakfast/lunch) and Big Al’s Diner (Burgers, etc) are 2 & 1 block north, and we’ve a Minute Market 1 block south.

Lhasa House is also just 2-blocks up the street from the Kagyu Sukha Choling Center for the Practice of Tibetan Buddhism, 3-blocks from Ashland Institute of Massage Therapy (AIM), and 4-blocks from the United Bicycle Institute

We are healers and authors. We've both lived in So. Oregon for more than 10 years and have worked and played together for more than 5 years. We fell in love with this property in the late fall of 2010 and moved aside much of our work in the world to develop it into a space for our healing visions to unfold. Now that the structural remodeling is complete, we are slowly developing the ample land (0.4 acre) into a healing garden based on the chakras.

We enjoy a daily Ashtanga-type yoga practice that you are welcome to sample if it suits you (inquire about practice times). We host an on-going, open experiential group on Monday nights.

Candace Cave purchased this cottage in 2011

We found this property when we were not even looking for somewhere to purchase. Dr. Zeb wanted to move out of Talent into a rental home where we could guide groups of people in our work. He hurt his shoulder and Candace took him to the chiropractor on the NE corner of Hersey & Main Street. She saw the realtor sign on the empty property, looked in the window and viewed exactly the dream space for the vision, then called the realtor. In bank foreclosure, the impressive 2-story vintage house had been mostly updated inside, and the 0.4 acre property 4-blocks north of Ashland's Downtown plaza was a price we could actually afford to purchase.

We spent the next two years (2011-2012) putting every bit of spare time and money we could muster into creating habitable spaces in the existing outbuildings to accommodate our work. The interior of Lhasa House was originally designed as Dr. Zeb's office. Circumstances and desire have motivated us to make it available as traveler's accommodation.

Lhasa House gives you complete freedom and privacy. It is as if you are staying in your own home. The front doorway leads down a delightful path right out onto Hersey Street where there is ample street parking.

The building was originally a mechanics garage, but over the past two years, we've turned it into a delightfully habitable space. Well insulated, with lots of natural daylight, it is quiet and private.

25th Wedding Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for us! Simplicity being the key word, but with everything you really need for a romantic get away.
Our intention was to park our car and only ride bikes or walk anywhere that we wanted to go, and we were able to do this! We also planned to enjoy local dining, so had no intentions of doing any cooking, so again the perfect place for us, as the kitchen isn't really set up for meal prep other than heating something up, or keeping cold beverages chilled.
The house was very clean, calming and cozy. The bed was very nice-top quality bedding, and great mattress. Although quite small, the studio is well laid out, and has everything you really need.
We will definitely be back, and will recommend to friends!

Great Place--Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
This place was a nice respite in an already-sleepy and peaceful town. The owners are hands off (in a good way), and the space is serene. The bed is incredibly comfortable!

Great little getaway cottage.

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for 3 days in January, and really liked this place. The cottage is small, but very nicely built and appointed. The construction, build quality, details, and decoration is all top notch. Some nice touches are a ductless heat pump for near-silent heating and cooling, full tile shower, hardwood floors, quality blinds, halogen track lighting with a dimmer, etc. The quality throughout the place, coupled with a nice minimalist decor, gave it a great ambiance. The place is clean, and the listing and photos here are accurate. We felt very comfortable and peaceful at the Lhasa House.

The location is just far enough that it's a short (15-20 minute) walk to the downtown plaza. The University is a further 10-15 minutes, making that an iffy walking distance for some. It's in a quiet area, but just close enough to Hwy 99 that it's susceptible to a faint, unobtrusive road noise. The views of Grizzly from the windows are pretty nice - good sunrise watching. We considered it a mostly ideal location.

This would have been a 5-star review, since we really did enjoy our stay and it's a great little cottage. However, a few minor things combined to take a star away. There was a snafu with communication around our arrival (not our fault), so we had to wait almost an hour to get in. The fridge was shut off and there were no Wi-Fi instructions or other welcome notes. It was a minor inconvenience, and the owners were very generous in offering us compensation for these things. I noticed the fridge/freezer doors wouldn't shut properly, creating lots of frost in the freezer. Also, one of the blinds was broken and hanging askew. I'm a handyman and was able to fix both things easily, and others may not have even noticed these things. The kitchen is very well stocked - microwave, toaster oven, mini fridge (with a real freezer!), plenty of dishes, soap, towels, cabinet space, etc. But it's extremely small, with very little counter space, and the layout makes it more difficult to work in than necessary. I kept wishing for a smaller entryway and larger kitchen! Our security deposit was refunded almost two weeks after we checked out.

Any of these things by themselves wouldn't even be worth mentioning. But taken together, they take the shine off an otherwise great visit. I wanted to give 5 stars for the great time we had here, but felt I had to be honest. Don't let this dissuade you, though - unless you're looking for a full kitchen, this is an ideal little cottage for anyone!

Owner's Response: Alex, Thank you for all the lovely remarks you had about your stay at Lhasa House. Unfortunately, you caught us in a OOPS moment with your visit. We'd had a small flood inside (broken water filter housing under the kitchenette sink) during the intense cold snap that visited the Rogue Valley in December and it seems that everything was not replaced as per usual. We have a laminate card for guests with Wi-Fi code and other important details, but it seems the cleaner did not replace it and also failed to notify me of the loose blinds. I noticed that the freezer had filled with ice and I thought it had something to do with the cold snap. It was supposed to be taken care of before you arrived (and is repaired now), but I was called out of town and left final detailing to another person, as well as making sure you had access. I learned it is always better to do things yourself than rely on someone who isn't used to overseeing details. My travel was also the reason for the deposit delay - not normal for me and I apologize sincerely. As for the kitchenette, well the photos show how cozy it is - it was originally planned as a closet. We do hope you give us another chance on your next visit to Ashland and are delighted to offer you 10% your next stay in Lhasa House. Best Wishes, Candace Cave

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my wife and toddler son for four nights. The studio is removed from the house and was perfect for us. The place is immaculate and just the right size for a family of 2.5. Proximity to the festival was important to us, and its good. The theree of us walked to Lithia park and to the festival on separate occasions, but only once. It's a bit far for a toddler, but doable, and perfect for adults on festival nights where parking can be harder. I highly recommend this place.

Quiet, convenient, well appointed and relaxing

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights to attend Oregon Shakespeare Festival and explore the Rogue Valley. Lhasa House is basically one large room with double bed and single bed (both Ikea style that fold up into sofa / chair if you want); a large vestibule at the entry with hooks for hangin thing, room to put luggage, a bathroom with shower and a small kitchen area with sink, dishes, microwave, toaster oven, and fridge. There was ice in the ice trays and the freezer actually works! Nice touch.

It was very quiet, the bed was comfortable, ample parking on the street next to the entry door.

12-15 minute walk to Shakespeare and town. Also went on whitewater rafting trip on Rogue River with Indigo Adventures, a good half day of fun, bald eagles, ospreys catching fish, etc.

Very relaxing, a perfect spot unless you want to have a full kitchen and cook, and watch TV (there isn't one). Nice place.

Thanks so much for the nice words you had to say about Lhasa House. Sad that we lost one star because no TV or full kitchen - we never claimed to have either, so don't understand why we got demoted because of that. Lhasa House kitchenette has a microwave, a toaster over, a hot-water kettle, dishes and utensils so that our guests can prepare and enjoy a simple meal. Ashland is such an amazingly entertaining town, with something going on nearly 24/7, we can't imagine why anyone would want to come here on vacation and watch TV!
