"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!"

"The location couldn't be better - right smack in the heart of downtown Ashland, a quick walk to the theaters, and surrounded by great shops, restaurants, etc. The townhouse is gorgeously modern, and a wonderful place to share the Shakespeare festival with family. It was all good, but the roof top decks are amazing. 365 degree views of the surrounding hillside, and gorgeously comfortable lounges, chairs, and tables to enjoy it. We had a wonderful visit - the owner Robert Kendrick keeps the units in top condition. If you're looking for a sophisticated pied-a-terre in the heart of the theater district of Ashland, this is the spot. Will definitely be coming back!"

"This was my second stay in Lisa's "Sweet Little Garden Studio", and was even more enjoyable than the first time. The Spring flowers were coming into bloom in her garden and it was most relaxing to sit on the porch in the sun. Really a delightful place for one person or a couple with one suitcase. (see previous review) Lisa is a delightful hostess and the cottage is located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Hope to be back again. Loved my stay!"

"Panoramic retreat above the trees. Artistic design/furnishings, immaculately clean, unbeatable location in Ashland. Kitchen is easy to manage, even with a couple of guests for dinner. Quick access to downtown for a free concert on the green before a Shakespeare play, a quick jaunt up to Jacksonville for a Britt concert (seasonal), and more wineries than you can possibly visit. When you feel like taking a little drive, grab a picnic lunch and head east up to Lake of the Woods. The treehouse is the perfect size for two people wanting to get away from it all. Choosing between the two decks was the toughest challenge of our stay. Can't say enough about Marty and Michael - great communication, attention to detail, warm welcome, but all the privacy of being in a mountaintop retreat. If you are planning a trip when we next plan to visit, please disregard this review - we want it all to ourselves!"
