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, 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, a silent A/C and heating 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 nineteen 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 spot to relax and enjoy Ashland

  • 5 of 5

Quiet spot in a residential neighborhood a short walk from downtown Ashland restaurants and theaters. Immaculately clean and well organized attached cottage that opens into a fragrant private garden. Karin was very friendly and accommodating. We hope to return for another stay in the future.

Quiet and cozy studio with lovely outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 4 nights in this studio apartment attached to the home of the owner. We were greeted by Karin, who gave us a quick tour of our lodgings. The kitchenette has everything you need to make a meal. Nice size bathroom with shower unit. The bedroom area has a queen bed and a small sitting area. All very nicely appointed. We enjoyed the shady outdoor area with comfortable seating. It's about a 15 minute stroll to downtown Ashland and the theaters. The host was wonderful. This is a great place for a couple to stay. We will be back.

A hidden sanctuary.

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd stay with Karin at Stone's Throw Bungalow. As always, the space was clean, well appointed and comfortable. The gardens and Karin's personal attention to our stay made the stay special. I appreciated the self check in option and the bottle of wine offered. The fire pit was a great way to enjoy the evening. I will return again.

Just as wonderful as last year!

  • 5 of 5

This small apartment has everything you need for a comfortable, pleasant stay in Ashland. If Karin hasn't thought of it - ask her. She is very eager to make sure you have a wonderful experience. She has outfitted the apartment w/ wonderful taste and thoughtful items. And the garden is absolutely wonderful!

Charming and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Stone's Throw Bungalow! Karin provided a lovely and comfortable environment for us. It is light and airy, and has everything needed for a wonderful stay. It is easy to walk downtown, and Karin is a wealth of information. She even provided cushions and a blanket for the plays! There is a lovely outside sitting area, filled with beautiful flowers. It does not have an oven/stove BUT it does have a barbeque, convection toaster oven, microwave and hot plate, so it is not a worry at all. The bathroom is roomy, the bed incredibly important and it is very comfortable. There are two bikes available as well. I highly recommend this place for any traveler to Ashland.

Very nicely laid out with everything a guest would want or need.

  • 5 of 5

Karin is the ultimate host. She provided more than we expected including a bottle of wine and fresh flowers. The bed, linens, everything was very nice, and the rooms were stylishly decorated. We enjoyed the garden area several times and would highly recommend Stone's Throw Bungalow as a wonderful place to stay in Ashland.
