"I've stayed in Ashland many times but I've never had so much fun. My husband and I stayed 2 nights for my birthday. We were able to walk to the OSF, restaurants, farmer's market. The hostel in the front house was very quiet. Beth is so accommodating and pleasant. Cannot wait to stay again next year. I started referring friends and family before we had even left Ashland. Thank you Cycle Hostel for an amazing stay!"

"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!"

"What a perfect place for us all. Our family traveled from Washington and Nevada to stay together in this beautiful setting along the Rouge River. This was a special time for us all as we celebrated Christmas, a birthday and celebration of life of our father who recently passed.
The house was very clean, comfortable, well equipped and very inviting. We loved our stay so much we're planning on returning for the summer to take it all in again. We thank the owners for opening their beautiful place to us and we appreciated the strong communication prior our stay."

"Every year for the past 9 years, my girlfriends and I (there are 5 of us) plan a getaway. Our stay in the Duncan Cottage was wonderful and one of the best vacation rentals we've stayed in! (We have experienced our share of nightmare vacation rentals, trust me!)
Located right in the heart of Jacksonville, everything was within walking distance...shopping, restaurants, coffee (the cottage is about a block from Good Bean coffee shop which has fantastic coffee and homemade pastries and bagels to die for).
The cottage was perfect for the 5 of us and proved to be quaint and cozy. The beds were comfortable, the fully equipped kitchen gave us the option to stay in and make meals if we didn't feel like dining out, and, I have to admit, I even loved the decor of the cottage!
Arlis Duncan, one of the owners, was so easy to work with and professional. I highly recommend staying at Duncan Cottage.....I know we will again in the future!"
