Ashland House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Futons, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Asian meets Craftsman in this two story hillside home perched high above the city lights. Full kitchen with every amenity including a professional stove, oven, and gas grill on the deck. We even have cook books!

Lounge in the library, relax in the great room as the morning fog drifts across the Rogue Valley, or share a great bottle of local wine while you sink into the leather sofas in front of the grand river rock fireplace. In the cool evening after a play you can soak in the hot tub on our enormous deck and watch for shooting stars. The milky way is very bright in our clear, cool air at 2500 ft. During the winter we even get the occasional snowfall!

With private rooms for 4 couples plus 2 futons in the media room there's plenty of room. The giant granite dining table seats twelve with ease and there's space to spare if you need to escape with a good book. Of course, we also have hi speed wifi throughout the house.

Miles of hiking and biking trails are just next door at Oredson Todd Woods. During the summer months the Water Park at Emmigrant Lake is just the place to cool off.

About Neil Cormia

We've been coming to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival since 1984 and long ago fell in love with Ashland and the Rogue Valley. Since we cannot be here full time we thought we should share our place with you!

Spectacular Home!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this wonderful property! The house is enormous--so much space, and so many different places to gather. One night we sat out in the hot tub, looking at the stars. We had breakfast on the deck looking at the fabulous view across the valley, played games in the great room, read up on Shakespeare plays in the library, or sat and talked at the kitchen table. The house is so quiet, peaceful and light-filled. There are windows everywhere which makes it feel even more spacious, especially when you are looking out from the great room across the valley to the beautiful hills. From the balcony, we saw deer, rabbits and a flock of wild turkeys. You really feel like are out in the country; yet the house is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Ashland and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The house is stocked with everything you could need to enjoy your time there. There wasn't one thing that was missing--and there was plenty of information provided about things to do in the area, places to eat and plays to see. The beds are cozy, the place is spotless, the decor is delightful. Our one regret is that we didn't stay longer. Next time: 2 weeks!

What a special place! We just returned from a one week stay at this beautiful property. Our group of six had lots of room in this spacious home for both privacy and togetherness. The kitchen is fully equipped, the views are to die for, the setting is rural yet a short drive into Ashland. Neil was wonderfully responsive and accommodating. We will certainly be back!

Well Maintained, Clean and Tasteful

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 ladies who stayed for a few days in May for a Mah Jongg week. We tend to be a little compulsive when it comes to cleanliness and were very satisfied with the level of maintenance and cleanliness in the house. We were especially impressed with the quality of the bedding and the completeness of the kitchen equipment. Usually when you rent a house you find a mishmash of cheap dishes and cookware but that was not the case here. Everything was of nice quality and matching sets of plates etc for large groups.

Normally we would not use a hot tub in a rental property but this one was so clean and well maintained that we felt free to go in.

The only less than ideal part was trying to use the TV. We wanted to watch the Warriors playoffs but it took 5 intelligent women 30 minutes to figure out how to turn on the TV. Fortunately we were eventually successful.

Overall we were very comfortable in the house, and enjoyed the solitude as well as out times spent in joint activities. Although the weather was mostly overcast and rainy, watching the clouds roll in to the valley was very enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding guest experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family met for a reunion at the Tolman House. All aspects of our stay exceeded expectations. The serenity of the location, added to the spectacular view, allowed us to relax and reminisce. There is hiking close by, and wildlife in abundance. All this, and you are a matter of minutes to central Ashland: the plays, the restaurants, etc.

We love to cook, and the kitchen easily accommodates the most finicky chef. All of the items needed for advanced preparation are there, and they are quality items.

An added feature is that the configuration of the house permits many separate smaller gatherings: one might go to the library, the TV/game room, the Great Room, or relax in either the kitchen dining area, or in the large and gracious formal dining room.

We hope to have our next reunion at the Tolman House!

Coach's cabin for State HS Champinonships

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely what us adults needed after coaching high school kids all day. The home has everything you need to relax and enjoy the time in Ashland. From the wood fireplace for raining days to the hot tub for soaking fun, to the bar that was used often, to the den to read or use the computer, etc etc etc. This home is well taken care of and the kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking appliances. Yes this home is a lot of $$$$, however you get what you pay for. 100% worth it. Quality!

The only downfall was the code supplied to get in didn't work, but the owner was quick to assist and offered to pay our bar tab at Omar's while we waited for his return call. Two thumbs up! -S & E :)

Owner's Response: Good news, Brian. I figured out my error with the door codes and all is back to 21st century tech again. I'm glad it all worked out for your stay!

Fantastic home base for Ashland, Shakespeare Festival, rafting, hiking, crater lake

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautifully designed, decorated, and outfitted; the owners were relaxed and responsive; the location was superb for quick drives to Ashland and the Shakespeare Festival plus easy access to hiking trials; the views were lovely. Our trigenerational family group had a wonderful time enjoying the area and living comfortably and enjoyably in the house -- lots of room to spread out and get organized, plus a nice sense of privacy on two floors. It's an ideal house for families and groups. Highly recommended by experienced VRBO travelers. Car needed.
