Quiet Comfortable Country Home Five Minutes from Shakespeare

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

This beautiful setting, once found, will be hard to leave—so comfortable is the house and so beautiful the park-like surround.

The two-story brick house in the country is only a five-minute drive to the heart of the theatre district and fine restaurants in Ashland. It sits near a meandering tree-lined stream and two rose gardens. There are numerous trees on the property including apple and pear and of course there are lots of blackberries. Beyond the stream are three acres devoted to raising grass-fed, antibiotic-free cattle.

The house has all wood floors except for one carpeted bedroom. Feather beds are available. In addition to three bedrooms and one bath, the upstairs has a 'library' area containing books and a small game table.

The fully equipped kitchen—gas stove, food processor, blender, crock pots, juicer, food mixer, ice cream maker—is large and sits adjacent to dining area and living room allowing simultaneous cooking and socializing. Some views are toward Mt. Ashland, others toward the rose gardens—all pleasant.

Jackson Wellsprings spa is 1.5 miles away.

There is a fireplace in the living room as well as a piano. The house is air-conditioned.

Local organic fruits and vegetables are available by special order.

Lovely house, great location, and a thoughtful host

  • 5 of 5

Susan took care of all of our needs and was incredibly accommodating. Her home is a gem and located just outside of town. We enjoyed quiet nights, a full-size kitchen and easy access to Ashland and its mountains.

Adorable hideaway minutes from Ashland

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Ashland Rose very much. We loved the peaceful, quiet setting. Susan, the owner, is very gracious and accommodating. With only three of us staying there, we had plenty of room to spread out. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms, while small, are fully functional. The kitchen has all the amenities necessary to cook at home, although we would have appreciated some additional glasses and utensils. My guess is that they have disappeared over the years and have never been replaced. There are so many blackberries on the property! We enjoyed that so much. Our hope is to return to Ashland soon and if we do, we will be staying here again. We just loved it.

Nice but has some mold especially in the laundry room.

  • 4 of 5

Basically comfortable but owner came over to use washing machine and drier and burn paper in the fire place. One small tv in the kitchen. Ripe blackberries to pick.

Owner's Response: This is the first I've heard of mold. I will check this out. Yes, I used washer/dryer once, with no entrance into private part of house. I never burned paper in the fireplace and do not know what the guest is referencing. Yes, there is only one small TV but I have always felt that if people come to Ashland, they're more interested in plays and outdoor activities. The small TV allows contact with the world. There is also FREE WIFI here. Also, the guests never complained about anything to me personally. Everyone has always been so very happy and appreciative while staying here. And many come back--tomorrow's party is coming for the fourth time.

Lovely country retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Our women's group of five thoroughly enjoyed the spacious kitchen, indoor eating areas ... and the outdoor picnic tables and lovely roses surrounding this brick home. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have air conditioning during the hot days. Mrs. Winn was most accommodating and helpful ;-).
