Ashland Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

(541) 482-9232

Just a stone's throw to the plaza, a licensed one-bedroom vacation rental suite is tucked behind one of Ashland's charming craftsman-style bungalows. Your private gated entrance, located behind the house, opens onto a peaceful garden and quaint patio - a wonderful place to enjoy morning coffee and the newspaper, or a glass of wine in the evening. In the summer and fall, help yourself to the ripe tomatoes, fresh herbs and fruit growing in the garden. The owner has lovingly created a sanctuary-like space within the town's premier historic district. Step back in time and enjoy a quiet retreat away from TVs and phones. (A wireless connection is available for your laptop should you wish.)

Your separate, attached one-bedroom retreat awaits and features fine linens, cozy robes, a private bath and a fully-stocked kitchenette including organic tea, coffee, cream and sugar. Step inside: a cool, restful palette adorns a tastefully furnished room that includes period pieces such as an arts-and-crafts style armoire. You'll find a quiet, comfortable bedroom that overlooks an enchanted, fragrant flower garden. This inviting space features wood and tile floors, a ceiling fan, an A/C unit, wall and space heaters, and plenty of windows so that you can take advantage of the abundant natural light and fresh mountain air. The bungalow is kept exceptionally clean using homemade, environmentally-friendly cleaners and a HEPA air purifier. Sorry, no smoking or pets.

The on-site owner has been a resident of Ashland for the past sixteen years. Your privacy is my utmost priority. If desired, I would be happy to guide you nearby hiking and biking trails, farmer's markets, wineries, hot springs and locally-grown organic food. I am also happy to supply you with anything you need during your stay.

Ashland highlights such as the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Lithia Park, Cabaret Theater, downtown plaza, restaurants, shops, and movie theaters are all within a lovely 10 - 15 minute walk. You'll stroll through a level, shaded historic neighborhood and cross a bridge over the gentle waters of Ashland Creek on your way there!

To maximize your privacy, cleaning services are not included as part of your stay. Fresh linens will be provided to those guests staying one week or longer. The Stone's Throw Bungalow is an eco-friendly establishment. We encourage walking, biking, carpooling, bus riding, conservation, recycling and other practices that lessen your impact on the earth during your stay.

Perfect Ashland Stay, Wonderful Apartment & Garden

  • 5 of 5

Karin's mother-in-law apartment in the back of her house is not large, but it is spotless, updated, comfortable and has wonderful natural light! Karin is the type of host that has thought of all the small details to make your stay easy and trouble-free (a light on the key chain, ponchos for the outdoor theatre, coffee and cream, nice wine glasses, etc). The garden is absolutely lovely with 2 sitting areas, one with a firepit and the other with a bistro table and chairs. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood, just a 10 minute walk to downtown. Enjoy!

Quiet, Pretty, Clean, Comfortable, Friendly, Nicely Equipped

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights here while attending Oregon Shakespeare Festival plays. Karin respected our privacy but was also an exceedingly welcoming and helpful hostess, even offering via text message to deliver cushions & blankets to us at the Green Show for use in the outdoor theater that evening. (Far beyond the call of duty!) The various kitchen appliances she supplies completely compensate for the lack of a stove or oven, and the spacious, well-tended back yard makes up (in good weather) for a fairly small indoor footprint. The bed is supremely comfortable; the whole place is attractive, thoughtfully and generously put together. And it's in a lovely residential neighborhood, a pleasant walk to theaters, parks and restaurants past lots of pretty houses, trees and gardens.

Delightful accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed Karin's little bungalow with everything -- a comfy bed, a good shower, a perfect little kitchen, tasty breakfast items, and pretty view into the back yard from the breakfast bar. The walk to the theaters is easy, through a nice neighborhood. And Karin even kindly found and mailed back to me a sock I'd accidentally left behind!

Our stay at Stone's Throw was perfect. Probably the nicest place we have ever stayed in our rental experience. Immaculate, fully stocked, clean and comfortable. Quiet, residential location, yet close to downtown. Wish we could have stayed a few extra days. Enjoyed the lovely gardens, and the hostess was very helpful. Would love to stay again.

Fantastic three days in Ashland

  • 5 of 5

This very modern and enjoyable suite of rooms was just what we wanted for our three night visit to the Shakespeare festival. Privacy. a delightful garden, plush amenities and a gracious hostess. Its about a mile to the festival so we walked most times but in the process found a good place to park when we drove for the last late night performance. We especially liked not having a TV as it forced us outdoors (Lythia park in particular) and away from the news. We will certainly return!

Beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow is beautifully appointed and designed. It's small, but big enough, and the garden area acts as a large additional room. We ate and relaxed outside enjoying the gorgeous setting. It's a nice easy walk to the theaters and town. A great find.
