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.

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.

Wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Karin graciously welcomes her guests to the private, well-equipped garden apartment in a quiet, well-groomed neighborhood less than a mile's walk from the theaters. Though compact, the apartment provides adequate space for both standing and sitting workspaces for two, with natural light from the generous windows providing views of the garden and rolling hills. This apartment isa treasure. We had a wonderful stay.

Repeatedly remarkable

  • 5 of 5

We love the Stone's Throw bungalow and have enjoyed it for the last few years when we attend the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Karin is wonderful to work with and has done some creative updates to the bungalow. It's also a friendly neighborhood for us to do our daily walks, including the very walkable distance to downtown and the theatres. We will be back! Thank you, Karin!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your glowing review. It's always a pleasure to have you two at the bungalow and I look forward to your next visit. Glad you like the updates! And, I agree, this neighborhood is great for walking!

Trim, Tidy, Tasteful

  • 5 of 5

This tucked-away gem - truly a mere hop-skip from Ashland's delightful hub - is a marvel of elegance, comfort, and ingenious efficiency. It is a perfect marriage of new, natural, and vintage. Karin is easy and gracious, fully at-your-service and entirely unobtrusive. Touches we loved: quiet and cared-for neighborhood; tiny triangular window in the garden gate; entry of our own (door painted yellow curry!) slate in kitchen/bath, polished old-growth fir in sitting/bedroom; calming neutral palette; original windows (that open!); ample light/lighting; expansive-yet-enfolding views (blue-grey hills, green/floral garden); cushy-firm-luxury bed/bedding; tiled shower; fluffy-generous towels. Altogether we got all we hoped for and hope to land here again!

Owner's Response: Wow - thank you for your wonderfully thoughtful and articulate review. You certainly have an eye for detail and it's clear you're both a talented artist (thanks for the gorgeous illustration) and writer. It was a pleasure to have you both here at the bungalow and I hope I have the chance to host you again. I really appreciate the time and effort you took to share your experience with future guests. Thanks again!
