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.
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.
