                            If you are looking for a private, absolutely gorgeous place to stay with an unbeatable setting of exquisite natural beauty then EUREKA (you have found it)! If your goal is not to see another soul, you can do that here; if you want to paint downtown Ashland, it is only a short drive. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen equipment is well-stocked and the decor is impeccable. The hosts are willing to help with advice (if requested) and definitely willing to give you privacy and space. One of the best vacations I ever had! Will definitely return!

                            This is a beautiful cottage, with lovely interiors, very clean inside and out, nice comfy beds and linens. There is a full service kitchen which is pretty perfect to me. The cottage is very cozy and quiet with a great backyard with expansive views of meadow and mountains. It takes 5 minutes by car to the center of Ashland. I love this place and have enjoyed my many stays over the last few years. It is my home away from my German home... I will always be back. Mary Anne and Richard are wonderful hosts. Many many Dankeschön :-)

                            The Aspen Cottage is a lovely spot to relax & enjoy all that Ashland has to offer. It is about one and one-quarter miles to the theatre. It is very welcoming, impeccably clean, tastefully furnished & decorated, comfortable & quiet! We have visited Ashland for 30 years and stayed in many different places. Our last three visits have been at the Aspen Cottage. We are so grateful to have found this perfect spot & will continue to enjoy it as we return to beautiful Ashland!

                            My family has been coming to Ashland to the Shakespeare Festival for many years. We have been staying as Richard and Mary Anne's guests for the last four years. Since we discovered this beautiful property, we never consider staying anywhere else. The property is unique. It is situated at the southern end of town just a short drive from downtown Ashland at the end of a quiet, unpaved street. A tall, hand-crafted, iron gate swings open as you enter the property. There are three houses on the land: the proprietor's home in the center and two beautifully designed cottages built in a brown-shingled, craftsman style that fits well with the surrounding natural environment. The back of the property faces into a grassy pasture with a serene view of an undeveloped portion of the surrounding Ashland hills. No other homes look into the property. It is completely private and extraordinarily quiet. In the morning and evening, deer come down into the pasture to graze. For us, it has become a nightly ritual to sit in the back yard, sip wine, and gaze at this tranquil scene until the sun sets behind the hills. The property is beautifully landscaped. The cottages are positioned on the land in a way that maximizes privacy. The landlords are very friendly, gracious, discreet, and considerate. They are highly attentive if you need something, but considerate of your need for privacy and rest if you do not request their assistance. The interior of the cottages are beautifully decorated and meticulously clean. The couches, arm chairs, beds, and other furniture are high-quality and comfortable. The kitchen has a full complement of dishes, glassware, silverware, pots and pans, and other utensils, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, stove, and other appliances. There is a flat-screen TV, DVD player and media library, plus reliable, easily accessible Internet and wi-fi connectivity. We consider this place a home away from home. The convenience, comfort, and serenity of this special retreat is one of the reasons we keep coming back to Ashland for the theater season year after year.

                            First when we got to the property it was filthy and we spent 4 hours cleaning it. Secondly the photos on VRBO do not accurately depict the property, which is sub-standard. Lastly prior to our leaving we hired a professional maid to clean the apt, wash the dishes, mop the floors, take out the trash and even clean the windows. When we asked for our deposit back the owner refused to give it back - no reasons give. We've tried for 2 months to get the owner to honor his rental contract to us. All in all I would not recommend this property to anyone!

                            Owner response: We have had great fortune in the stellar quality of our wonderful guests, for which we are thankful. How sad Michael did not take responsibility for the condition in which he left the cottage. He was notified of the problems and the costs we incurred to rectify them, which exceeded the security deposit. His comments are not representative of the facts. We regret that his review cannot be removed, however we let the multitude of reviews speak for themselves. We thank you for seeing this for what it was. Richard and Mary Anne Owners.

                            This is a gem - tasteful Country French decor befitting a design magazine, yet comfortable and cozy. My husband and I took the master BR, and our teenage daughter was in the sweetest little room off the Master. It did not bother us, but a person needs to transit through the Master from that room to reach the bathroom. Thoughtfully appointed with great reading material, TV/movies, luxurious bedding and a well-stocked kitchen. We would definitely return and recommend. We attended plays by night, and played outdoors by day. Our only regret is that we didn't leave ourselves enough down time to really enjoy the place.

                            VERY NICE LOCATION, VERY CLEAN PLACE, AND VERY COMFORTABLE. WE HAD A GREAT TIME THERE. ONLY RECOMMENDATION I HAVE IS TO MAYBE BE MORE SPECIFIC ON DIRECTIONS TO THE COTTAGE. I FOUND IT A LITTLE CONFUSING LOCATING IT SINCE THERE IS A DEAD END SIGN ON THE STREET BUT YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE DRIVING ANOTHER QUARTER MILE PAST THE DEAD END SIGN. BESIDES THAT WE HAD A GREAT VACATION.

                            This cottage is an excellent choice for a couple. We stayed 4 nights and cooked in 2 nights as there is a full kitchen. It is comfortable, clean, quiet. The bed was comfortable and they have a washer/dryer which was a nice feature. The outdoor space has a bistro and we saw deer and quail in the back of the cottage. The owners have thought of everything and even left fresh tomatoes by the front door one day. A two minute drive gets you into Ashland.

                            My husband and I spent 3 nights at Aspen cottage. I loved the way the cottage was decorated with a european flair. It was so comfortable. The bed was terrific and I am pretty fussy when it comes to my creature comforts. Very peaceful and quiet at all times and we enjoyed sitting out at the back of the cottage sipping a glass of wine in the evening. Our hosts were friendly and helpful with our questions about the area but also gave us complete privacy. There was a emergency plumbing situation that happened on our first morning. We went out to breakfast as planned and when we returned an hour later it was completely taken care of. I was so impressed with how that was handled!!! I would highly recommend the cottage and hope to stay there again the next time we are in Ashland.
