Ashland cottage description

Relax in this simple, comfortable sanctuary.

The Quan Yin Cottage at Ashland Zen Center is set back from the street on nearly an acre of lovely grounds. Wake to birdsong, and eat breakfast on the deck. Stroll the fragrant flower gardens and sit on one of the contemplative benches.

Temple activities take place five times a week in the building next to the cottage, and once a week in the annex nearby.

Enjoy mountain views to the North from the cottage windows and custom French doors.

The cottage is approximately 560 square feet. The small kitchen has a full sized refrigerator, gas range and oven. A microwave, coffeemaker and toaster are provided. Bathroom has bathtub/shower combination, sink and toilet.

A cast-iron gas stove warms the living room on cool evenings, and air conditioning is available for hot summer afternoons.

Bedroom has a queen bed, the couch opens to full bed. The cottage is equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi. A flat screen TV with DVD player is provided for viewing movies, along with a small library of DVDs. A CD player is available for your favorite music.

The cottage is half a block from the Ashland Bike Path, which offers a pleasant 30- minute walk into the heart of Ashland. Bicycle rentals, river rafting services, farmer’s markets, hot springs, spa services, yoga classes, organic farms, wineries, restaurants, movie theaters, fitness club, and coffee shops are all moments from your doorstep.

Ashland’s finest treasures are just 7 minutes away by car: the Ashland Shakespeare Festival, Oregon Cabaret Theatre, Lithia Park, and the Ashland downtown plaza. Additionally, hiking trails in the woods overlooking Ashland, or around the mountain lakes of the surrounding Siskiyou Mountains are always beckoning.

Quan Yin Cottage is named for the goddess of compassion and mercy; the one who hears the cries of the world. A statue of Quan Yin graces the garden outside the cottage door.

Quan Yin Cottage is maintained through the service of Zen students who are dedicated to your privacy and comfort. All proceeds from the cottage go towards the maintenance of Ashland Zen Center. AZC is a non-profit, Soto Zen Temple in the lineage of Suzuki Roshi.

We do not use the VRBO calendar, so please contact the Cottage Manager for availability.

                        My husband and I spent almost a week at the charming cottage at the Zen Center in Ashland. Peaceful and surrounded by beautiful gardens, views and abundant birdsong we felt that this was the best VRBO site we had used in Ashland. The cottage appears as charming and clean in person as in the pictures displayed. I felt the price was excellent. Mike and the others at the Zen Center were very personable and helpful when we had questions. I really appreciate the site in the Southern part of town as it is less hectic than the downtown bustle but still close to stores, hiking and theatre. It has a very country feel with awesome views of Grizzley Peak and surrounding areas. Thank you so much for a memorable time and looking forward to our quick return!

                        The cottage was relaxing, quiet and very clean. It had everything that we needed for our visit. The few people we encountered from the Zen Center were very kind and helpful. The gardens on the property were beautiful and a peaceful surprise. We will stay here again when we visit the Ashland area.

                        My sister's and my stay at the Quan Yin Cottage at the Ashland Zen Center was perfect! The cottage is spacious and cozy (it was chilly outside) and comfortable and roomy enough for us both to have our own space. The kitchen was a delight to work in, and the yard and gardens so pleasant to walk around while enjoying morning coffee. Nearby was a walk/jog/bike path that we took advantage of and the theaters were a close and easy drive. We loved that we could be in town for the theaters all the various and fun offerings of downtown Ashland and then here in this peaceful space to both end one day and begin another. I would highly recommend it and look forward to being able to return and stay here again.

                        The cottage was spotless,tastefully decorated and well equipped with essentials like coffee maker, iron and ironing board, wine glasses etc.. The location is good, certainly not walking distance to the theaters, but you are on the edge of town and the theaters are a five minute drive away. The bedroom's french doors opening upon the immaculate gardens was just one example of how the cottage exceeded all my expectations, especially at this price. The Zen Center was a great neighbor, never bothering us the three days we were there. A great place!

                        The cottage is an amazing space. Very thoughtfully and thoroughly equipped. Absolutely gorgeous gardens surrounding it. Nice location right off the freeway and it is a very pleasant walk or run on the path into the downtown area. The hosts are considerate and lovely people to work with and are exceedingly accomodating. And the elk are fun too. I highly recommend Quan Yin Cottage as a base in this oh so beautiful part of the world.

                        My teenage daughter and I stayed here for five nights in August. The little cottage was clean, cozy and welcoming. It was just right for the two of us, with a relaxing combination of privacy and space. When my daughter needed some distance from me, she headed for the picnic table at the far end of the garden with her laptop, and from there communed with her friends in California. I enjoyed eating breakfast and reading on the deck surrounded by lovely gardens. Zen center practitioners came to the center for meditation (in the hall) and gardening, and were always respectful of our space. I also had warm conversations with them, and a tour of the zendo. I hope to return, as I have such pleasant memories of this special place.

                        I can't say enough good things about the Cottage at Ashland Zen Center. The attention to detail in its design, and the generosity with which it was created and is managed make it comfortable and welcoming and so easy to enjoy. It is a very relaxing place to be. The people at the Zen Center charged with managing the cottage are all kind and generous and extremely respectful of one's privacy. The lovely garden is a sanctuary. It far surpassed my expectations. The location is convenient. There is a healthy supermarket, bank, post office, restaurants and shops within 2 blocks. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Ashland.

                        So glad we were able to stay here. It is so beautiful with all the flowers in bloom - especially the lillies which were so fragrant. It felt very cozy - much nicer than a hotel.
