Southern Oregon Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-15)


3 story chalet nestled in the Cascade Mountains at 4000' elevation. Fantastic view overlooking Siskiyou Mtns, Klamath Mtns, Colestine Valley and Mt. Ashland. Awesome sunsets!

Perfect for hikers (5 minutes from Pacific Crest Trail and Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument/ Pilot Rock), bikers (dozens of trails from Mt. Ashland down to city of Ashland), skiers (Mt. Ashland Lodge is 15 minutes away), rafters (Klamath River put-in is 30 minutes south) and Shakespearean types who prefer privacy with a view! 15 minutes from Ashland down I-5 Siskiyou Summit.

Chalet has 1000 sq. ft. deck and is located in the Cascade Mountains and built so as not to change the natural surroundings.

Security, cleaning and pet deposit required.

Why the Owner Chose Ashland: This property has been a dream project. I purchased the bare land in 2007 and began construction in the Fall of that year. The Chalet was completed in February 2009. As with all new construction on acreage, the little projects are constantly ongoing!

If visiting in Winter months (and possibly Spring and Fall), it is advisable to drive a 4-wheel drive vehicle equipped with tire chains. Although 4-wheel drive is not usually necessary, Mother Nature has surprised us with moderate to heavy accumulations of snow!

The Unique Benefits of this Chalet: If you want peace and quiet with a spectacular view, then this is the place for you! Perfect for family gatherings while only 15 minutes to Ashland traveling North on I-5.

What makes this chalet unique

The Colestine Valley has its own unique physical climate. It may be raining in the Rogue Valley and the sun will be shining in the Colestine Valley!

Additionally, many people do not know that there is a large Buddhist Temple below the chalet in the valley. I always recommend to visitors to visit the temple for a half day trip. It is 3 miles down Colestine Rd. off the Mt. Ashland access road.

Take the time to clear your mind and "plug-in" to the positive energy of the valley.

Lovely setting, private place

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the rural setting, privacy and quiet of the house. We found the owner easy to work with and the house adequately supplied. We did find the house to be a bit more rustic than expected with no door on the upstairs bedroom and the upstairs bathroom with two upper walls open to the living room so you could hear anything going on in there. Kitchen was adequate and we hosted several large get-togethers.

Old Friends Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We rented the chalet for a reunion of old friends. The six of us all loved the spectacular view from the wrap-around deck. The place was clean and comfortable and suitable for our needs. The location is terrific if you want a quiet retreat, yet still close enough to Ashland to enjoy the Shakespeare Festival.

All in all we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend the chalet to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in southern Oregon.

Great views, nice place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights with two families (total of 4 adults, 3 kids). It was perfect for our needs--3 separate bedrooms, with lots of floorspace in the master bedroom (really more like a loft area). Nice fireplace, great views, plenty of space. Convenient to get to Mt. Ashland for skiing--we ended up doing hiking instead, because no snow this year. Owner was very responsive and responsible--easy to work with. Kitchen has all the pots and pans you'd need. Was missing paper towels and napkins, but we made due. Note that, while there is a photo of a hot tub, the place is not advertised as having a hot tub, and when we were there, it had an electrical problem so it wasn't working. If it gets working again, this would be another big plus, because it'd be a gorgeous place to soak and look at the stars.

Perfect Girlfriend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented this chalet with my book club friends for a quick weekend getaway. It was perfect. We had beautiful weather and enjoyed the deck, the barbecue and the lovely living room with it's beautiful view. All was as described and the owner was very accommodating and friendly.

We hiked the Pacific Crest Trail which was beautiful. I highly recommend this chalet for the deck, the view and the well appointed interior.

The only disappointment was that the hot tub was not working.

Family Party...

  • 5 of 5

We held my dad's 80th birthday party at the was perfect for a large group of people with plenty of room inside and outside for everyone to mingle and catch up. My sister and I and our families all stayed there for the weekend and it was perfect for that too...very comfortable but with enough room that we weren't running into each other. We also did a lot of just relaxing on the comfy couch in front of the fire. Paul was great too, even stopped by before the party to make sure we had everything we needed!
