Candace Cave purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Candace Cave chose Ashland
We purchased this property because of its versatility, history, and location to downtown Ashland. The main house is a vintage 2-story (1884 – the Payne-Penter House), a signature building as one nears Ashland’s downtown plaza, distinguished by the upstairs stained-glass window. There were two older out-buildings (“Temple House” is one and “Lhasa House” VRBO#457370 is the other) that we changed from empty shells to havens of modern comfort. We dream of the large, formerly empty back yard as a garden sanctuary for healing body, mind and spirit and that is an on-going project you are welcome to enjoy during your visit. You’ll discover all the fittings and furnishings in Temple House are brand new.
What makes this Cottage unique
The setting at Chakra Garden is beautiful and we make all of the garden available as a healing sanctuary for your peaceful stay in the unique community of Ashland. We are an easy 10-minute walk to the heart of downtown Ashland, Lithia Park and OSF. We are experienced therapeutic healing practitioners. We offer many services to compliment your Ashland visit including bodywork, meditation or yoga, counseling, sex therapy and Tantra education. Please learn more at our property's home site

Chakra Garden, one last time
We were sorry to stay in comfortable Temple House one last time - the garden setting was as interesting as ever and Zeb especially helpful. Best wishes for your future plans. Deanna & Richard Iltis
Temple House was completely comfortable and adequate for our needs, and the gardens an exceptional benefit. With many thanks for sharing this special place.
Delightful as Usual
We so look forward to our annual stay at the Chakra House each fall. The cottage is very comfortable and even provided with coffee beans and fixins well as a variety of teas. The garden is a delight - always "in progress" as gardens are - providing a nice place to relax with a cup of that coffee. For us, the location, a comfortable walk to the theater venues, is ideal. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating as well. I would highly recommend a stay with Candace any time you're in Ashland.
A beautiful little space !
This is my second time staying at the gardens , it is a very tranquil space. The cottage is clean and well appointed. We will stay again, thank you
Peaceful setting; well appointed and spacious Temple House
So many positives:
--first and foremost we appreciate VRBO's installment payment system, especially when we make our reservations a year in advance
--We both thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with our hosts, Candace and Zeb
--As serious gardeners we admired the extensive gardens and appreciated the effort to maintain them
--As I told Candace, the wildflower screen in Temple House was 'worth the price of admission' - it was pure pleasure to wake up each morning viewing all of our favorite Southern Oregon wildflowers - thank you for sharing.
And a confession:
--We felt somewhat guilty running faucet-plus-shower for long enough to get hot water for dish washing, when we know how scarce water is in Southern Oregon. We hope there is a fix in future planning.
We enjoyed ourselves so much in the cottage. It was lovely and peaceful and clearly had been very thoughtfully prepared to make guests comfortable. For an onsite manager, Zeb was the greatest.
Temple House is an easy walk to downtown Ashland, the Shakespeare Festival, and most of our village's other attractions. Although Chakra Garden is located near an artery road, strolling along the alley at the foot of our property leads you into a gentle neighborhood with well-kept houses built early in the 20th century. We're an easy bike ride to Bear Creek Greenway and our property supports cycling - we even have a couple of bikes you might be able to us.
Temple House is on the grounds of an historic Ashland home and it's here that we've established a private healing center. Our Chakra Gardens are in development and available for your enjoyment - 2015 promises lots of color showing itself on our grounds. We are experienced therapeutic healing practitioners and offer many services to compliment your Ashland visit including bodywork, meditation or yoga, and counseling.
