                                Comfortable, extremely clean cottage that is perfect for two couples. An easy walk to downtown and Shakespeare venues. Well stocked kitchen and lovely gardens. I would recommend this property.

                                The four of us (two couples) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the small cottage. Not only is it fully furnished, it is beautifully decorated and well-maintained as reflected in the photographs. It's in walking distance to downtown Ashland and the theaters, the Ashland food co-op, restaurants, and shops. We prepared several meals and were all delighted with the accommodations and would recommend the place highly.

                                Central Avenue Cottage is part of Ashland's Historical District. Its friendly neighbors greated us as we walked to the plaza, Farmers' Market, nearby theatres, eateries and Lithia Park. The grounds provide a beautiful environment enhanced by the view of surrounding trees and mountains. Cleanliness, comfort and courtesy are the earmarks of our too short stay in Ashland. The kids loved the Science Museum, white water rafting, and a tour of Jacksonville. We can't wait till next summer to relax, laugh, smell the cedars and greet our new friends again. Staying at the cottage was a wonderful life changing experience for all of us. Thanks, Lois and Anna!

                                The four of us, in Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, enjoyed the cottage as our home base. It is beautifully restored and set in lovely gardens. The cottage offers all one could want: comfortable furniture and beds, a remarkably well equipped kitchen and pantry, space to be together and apart. We were especially appreciative that it felt like a place someone lived rather than a B&B with all the requisite frills. We wanted for nothing. It is conveniently located on a quiet street within walking distance of all points of interest in Ashland. We look forward to another rendezvous at the Central Avenue Cottage next year.

                                Lois' cottage is the perfect place to enjoy Ashland. It is charming, comfortable, convenient, well-appointed and immaculate. Loved the beautiful gardens. The comfy porch is the perfect place to "hang out."

                                After more than 20 years of vacationing in Ashland and staying at a wide variety of places, I can say without hesitation that this Central Avenue cottage is by far my favorite place to stay in Ashland. The cottage is perfectly located, beautifully appointed, comfortable and cozy, and very ingeniously renovated. Lois is a wonderful hostess. We can't wait to go back.

                                We frequently visit family in Ashland and have tried a number of different B&Bs and hotels. This cottage is by far our favorite. The location is ideal for walking everywhere and the neighborhood is established and quiet. We loved the comfy master suite with adjoining office area and full bath. The efficient 2BR/2BA floor plan offers both space & privacy for two couples (or in our case, one couple and a single). The outdoor areas are charming and inviting - we enjoyed coffee & the paper every morning on the front porch. The amenities and gracious hostess, Lois, make this a wonderful find.

                                What a wonderful way to spend time in Ashland. We stayed for a week, walked to the market (coop and farmers'), the plays, restaurants. Lois is a wonderful person to rent from -- easy to reach and conscientious. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. We especially appreciated the two bathrooms and air conditioning. Lovely front yard for sitting! Planning next year!

                              About the owner: I have lived and worked in this wonderful town for 25 years. I bought this home in 1986 with the dream that someday I would turn it into a travelers accommodation. Over the years I have carefully remodeled and restored this 1900 cottage and I welcomed my first visitors in 2008.

                              Why the Owner Chose Ashland:
                              What I love about this property is its close proximity to the heart of downtown, the coop, and the park while still maintaining a quiet, natural setting. All are within 3 minutes walking distance so you can leave your car parked in the driveway for days.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              In addition to the pleasing home and proximity to downtown, you can sit outside on the porch or on the patio and enjoy the beautiful gardens surrounding the home with the green mountains in the background.
