The perfect place in Ashland
The perfect place in Ashland
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at the Terra Cottage. I wish we could have stayed longer! We were in the upper apartment and it was perfect for a couple and two singles. Mark and Elizabeth were thoughtful (delicious chocolates in the fridge, everything we needed in the kitchen) and helpful (directions to the theatre, pointing out what has to be THE best breakfast spot in Ashland). If we'd had more time there we would have definitely made use of the beautiful garden and deck. As it was, my family stocked up on all their holiday gifts from Elizabeth's pottery shop and left with lovely memories.

We just returned from our annual trip to Ashland, mainly for OSF, but also the food, outdoors activities, and relaxing. After previously staying in B&B’s we chose to find a rental house for this week. I did a bunch of research and what struck us about the Terra Cottage Inn was the outdoor kitchen. Since my wife I like to cook, we though this would be the place. I will say this is one place where the pictures do NOT do the property justice. First, the outdoor kitchen: IT IS THE BEST! The grill, the stove, the sink, the refrigerator, the incredible clay pottery that one of the proprietors (Elizabeth) and the table and benches that the other proprietor (Mark) made make it a perfect spot. We took advantage of this spot to have several dinners and with the lounge chairs, it is perfect for morning coffee. It should be noted that the Terra Cottage Inn is part of a beautiful property that includes one other rental house and the owners house. Besides the outdoor kitchen, there is a Koi pond, a garden (from which you can pick anything from), a hammock, and outdoor shower (if you want to use it) and Elizabeth's Pottery Studio and Mark’s Art Studios. The have decorated the whole property with great lights and artistic touches everywhere. Terra Cottage Inn is in it’s own building up a flight stairs(nothing but storage down below). It is not large, but perfect for a vacation rental. During our visit the temps in Ashland were above 100 degrees, but the air conditioning kept is nice and cool. The kitchen is well stocked and the living room furniture is very comfortable. There is a TV, but we only used it once (to watch my beloved Portland Timbers). The linens in the bedroom are great and the queen bed is comfortable. They also provide great bathrobes! There is a second bedroom with two twin beds (which we didn’t need to use). Bathroom has good water pressure and they provided almost everything you could need (shampoo, soap. lotion etc...). The inside space is not huge, but very comfortable, when you add in all the magical outdoor areas this is an A+ space and we will be back every year. Quick P.S.- Mark and Elizabeth are the most delightful people. They give you as much privacy as you want, but will also show you their studios, give you local tips, share stories, etc. They certainly added a lot to our experience.

We had a girls weekend here in early June. Celebrating my sister's 40th. This place is amazing! The details are taken care of here and you know love is in the details. Mark and Elizabeth are so fun to chat with and offer great suggestions of where to go and what to see. She has great pottery! I'm enjoying my solar lights in the yard so much. The kitchen is well stocked with spices and all. There is shampo and conditioner in the shower. The pepermint soap is to die for! The grounds around the home are gorgeous. Again the attention to detail. Stay here you won't be disappointed! We hope to get back soon! They are also close enough to town that you can walk but far enough away as to not be noisy. I had some great runs from their place toward town and through the amazing park.

Wonderful place and hosts
Wonderful place and hosts
This is the best appointed place I have ever stayed at in Ashland or anywhere. Elizabeth and Mark were terrific hosts. The cottage is lovely and very comfortable. The attention to detail was unmatched: from touches in the bathroom to the outdoor kitchen, from the super-comfy robes to the art and pottery. It is also an easy walk from the Terra Cottage Inn to downtown and the Festival. Highly recommended.

Home Away From Home
Home Away From Home
The Terra Cottage Inn was the ideal home base to stay while attending plays at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Its location offers a very pleasant walk through a tree-lined residential neighborhood to the hub of the OSF and Lithia Park. The extremely cordial hosts, Mark and Elizabeth, think of everything, from spices in the cupboard to fresh vegatables from the garden. The cottage is spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, linens, and a fantastic outdoor leisure area under two gigantic sequoia trees. We have found the place we will always stay when visiting Ashland!

We have been coming to Ashland for 20 years and are so glad we discovered Mark and Elizabeth’s Terra Cottage Inn. This is our second stay at the TCI and will be back. Mark and Elizabeth are such a pleasure and are wonderful hosts. The cottage is comfortable, clean, well decorated, and has everything you need for a restful stay.

Love this place!
Love this place!
We've been going up to Ashland almost every year for the past 20 years or so, but didn't discover Mark and Elizabeth's "calm-pound" until 2007. We've stayed in the Terra Cottage Inn twice since then and the High Street Cottage next door twice as well, and plan to spend another week in the TCI this fall. Both places are lovely, well-equipped, comfortable, clean, tastefully decorated, and conveniently-located near the theaters and downtown area, as well as a short distance from the railroad district area. Elizabeth and Mark are wonderful hosts, and we just wish we'd started renting it years sooner than we did for our visits to Ashland!

We loved our stay at the Terra Cottage Inn. It was perfectly clean, so comfortable, and beautifully appointed with art, fine linens, and tasteful touches to make us feel at home. We loved having access to the gorgeous and quiet garden, patio, and outdoor kitchen. Mark and Elizabeth are gracious, friendly, helpful, yet unobtrusive hosts. It's a comfortable 10 minute walk through a lovely neighborhood to the theater. After five years of coming down to Ashland, I think we've finally found the place we will come back to again and again.

The only problem with Terra Cottage Inn is coming home. . . we just returned from another lovely weekend in Ashland and want to turn right around and go back! I can't imagine a more ideal set-up. Hosts Mark & Elizabeth live on site, but in their own lovely home, so Terra Cottage Inn affords the hospitality feel of a B&B, but with the privacy of a guest house. You will not find anywhere cleaner or more inviting than Terra Cottage Inn or High Street Cottage. I have stayed in both and can recommend them highly. A hotel, or someone's empty vacation house, do not compare with the welcoming and homey atmosphere, and attention to your comfort, that you will find at Terra Cottage or High Street. I recommend you book now, before we beat you to it!

We just returned from Ashland after spending three nights at the Terra Cottage Inn and it was very hard to leave. I don't know when we have settled in to a home away from home so quickly and been as comfortable. Besides the many features others have mentioned, the furniture in the living room is wonderful and there is plenty of good lighting in all the rooms for my husband and I who like to read. Elizabeth asked for feedback about any improvements or changes they could make to make the cottage more comfortable and we couldn't think of a thing. It is perfect.
