Property description

Helman Guest House is a charming early 1900s two bedroom home that can comfortably sleep up to five guests. It is only three short blocks from Ashland's Plaza, restaurants, and world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival theater complex.

The large master bedroom, located on the ground floor, is appointed with a luxurious king-size bed, its own television, and the master bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The home's second bathroom is also on the ground floor, and contains a vintage claw-foot bathtub and shower combination.

The second bedroom is a sweet upstairs room with lots of natural light, a queen-size bed, and a twin-size bed. Roll-away beds and air mattresses are available at the request of larger parties.

The house has a very cozy living/dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a charming breakfast nook. It has an old-fashioned covered front porch with a table and chairs, as well as full laundry facilities. The house is very comfortable and easy to settle into for a pleasurable stay in Ashland.

The two studio units, across the courtyard from the main house, can each sleep up to three people. Each unit has a private bathroom, Studio A with a bathtub and shower combination, and Studio B with a large walk-in shower. Each studio has a queen-size bed and a daybed, cable television, private telephone, and dining table. Each unit's kitchenette is equipped with a microwave, mini-fridge, toaster, and coffeemaker. Sheets, towels, cookware, and tableware are all provided.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Hello, I'm Alice and my daughter Nancy and I own and operate Helman House. I have lived in Southern Oregon most of my life. I was born in Klamath Falls, went to school and raised my family in the Bay Area, and moved back to Oregon to be close to family when my first grandchild was born. I love Ashland and the quality of life and people here.

Why Ashland:
Helaman House is ideally located 3 short blocks from downtown in a quiet residential neighborhood. Easy to walk to numerous restaurants and bars, the Varsity theater, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and Lithia park. It is also a great place to settle in and enjoy cooking your own meals and having a sanctuary to rest and visit with family and friends.
