                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Russ and JoAnn Manzone, owners. We fell in love with Ashland the moment we saw it. We moved here in 2004 from Southern California and have never looked back. Russ is a Real Estate Broker with John L. Scott and I am a fiber artist/felter. I have a studio at Ashland Art Center where I teach and create.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ashland:
                  We love living in Ashland and like to share this love with our guests. We were attracted to Ashland's beauty, inclusiveness and sense of community. We built this cottage in 2006 thinking that when we retire, we may move into it and rent out our larger home. The cottage has high ceilings and an open floor plan. We tried to create a comfortable open living space that is warm and cozy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Amazing mountain views, close to downtown.
