"When I found Quan Yin Cottage online - lovely and reasonably priced - it sounded too good to be true, so much so that friends asked, Does it have indoor plumbing? And I wondered if there was meaningful air conditioning, which I knew was a necessity in Ashland in the summer. Quan Yin turned out to be even better than we'd hoped. The cottage is not only charming, it's immaculate and in good repair. The kitchen was thoughtfully equipped with almost all the basics we needed, and a request for a larger salad bowl was met in seconds. The air conditioner proved equal to a week of record high temperatures. And, although it's called a cottage, there was enough room for both my husband and me to have writing areas.
The tree-shaded deck is where we ate most of our meals. And tending the grounds, with their beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees must be part of the Zen Center's spiritual practice: generally, the only time anyone entered the yard, s/he was coming to water and prune—moving quietly, clearly mindful about disturbing a woman with a laptop. By the way, the center's activities didn't impinge on us in the least. I think there was a meditation gathering from 6-7 a.m. most days, but people arrived and left so quietly, we slept through it.
Stacey was an extremely considerate host. He called us the day before our arrival, when we were driving up from California, to let us know they'd needed to repair a broken window and expected to be done by the middle of the next day ... and he hoped that wouldn't cause us any problems; it didn't.
Quan Yin ended up really feeling like home. Just looking at the picture, two weeks after our return, I miss it!"

"We had a lovely weekend at this house. The pictures don't do it justice. An absolutely beautiful spot on the river and every thing you could possibly want in the house. And Rich was lovely to work with!"

"My friends and I rented Laurie's home for a birthday trip. We knew it would be nice from the pictures and description, but it exceeded all our expectations. When we walked in we were greeted by a beautifully decorated living room with expansive views of the gorgeous hillside.
The house itself is amazing. There were 8 of us and we had more than enough room. It was raining one day of our trip so we cooked breakfast in the well-stocked kitchen and then spent time in the hot tub enjoying the beautiful scenery. There is also a ping pong table, which we used later on.
Laurie was easy to work with and available if we had any questions or concerns. Fortunately our stay was perfect so we didn't need to call her. She left a vase of freshly picked flowers for us, which was a thoughtful touch.
One of the best things about this home is how affordable it is. We would have spent the same amount, if not more if we had rented hotel rooms. It was also nice to be within a short drive to downtown Ashland, but also to be out in the country. There is a lake that is just over the hill from the house and I would love to come back during the summer and spend time there.
I look forward to returning to Ashland and renting this wonderful home again!!"

"This is the second time my wife and I have stayed. The owners the staff and the little cabin are truly a treat to be around. We could have not asked for anything more. Every chance we have to get back and if there is an opening, we will be there!!!! They treat you as if you are there personal guest. Also the new Bamboo privacy fence is a very nice touch!!! Thank you again!!!!"
