What a wonderful place!!!!
"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!!!!"

"This was the best vacation ever for our young teens, who spent hours every day splashing and floating in the beautiful creek, which is warm and deep enough for comfortable swimming. It is also crystal clear. The river access is private and picturesque, and a small bridge spans the river for safety so kids are not at risk of drifting downstream. Both the deck on the house and the big deck right on the river have been restored with Trex so they are dry and sturdy and sliver free. The property appears to border national forest land so there is room to wander and sleep out under the stars.
Only two miles away is the Crescent Lake resort with jet ski, paddle board, and other rentals which is a big draw for teens (jet ski drivers must have a driver's license). Our kids also loved Odell lodge, another couple of miles down the road, with great swimming and delicious restaurant food. We did a beautiful hike into the Diamond Peak Widerness from a trailhead right at the Crescent Lake Junction.
A frame cabins are naturally a little tight in the corners, which is fine because you mostly can "live" outdoors. The kids loved the spacious loft and there are many windows you can open up for ventilation. The owners have added operable windows throughout and a dormer for height in the bathroom. One thing we really appreciated is that absolutely every kitchen implement, tool, and accessory you might need can be found. Unlike some rentals where you don't even find salt, pepper, or cooking oil, this one has condiments, spices, and pretty much anything you might need for cooking. The gas barbecue on the deck works great.
And finally.....the best part of this vacation from the adult perspective was the lack of wifi! Kids were unplugged from their phones so we played games, talked, hiked and swam without distractions. A great experience overall that felt to the older generation like the cabins retreats of the 1960s."

"Rural and magical are wonderful words, but often diametrically opposed. Most people are separated just enough from rural life as to think it is always as magical as a sky filled with the blinking star dream of a life of casual luxury. However, the truth is and will remain as long as there are rural places: creating a space for one's self in a rural setting (let alone one with enough surplus to share with guests!) is often fraught with struggle, heartbreak, difficulty, and a lifetime of hard work- equal parts luck, and a mountain of goodwill...
Luckily, at the Bad Taste BnB, you wont have to deal with an ounce of that struggle. Moana, your gracious and graceful host has seen to it that all you need to do here is relax and enjoy the hard fought and won dream of the colestein valley just outside the hamlet of Ashland. A wonderful woman. A wonderful space. And a truly magical way to enjoy this rural gem.
Don't be afraid to tip well if you feel the experience stretches to the extraordinary!"

"Maxfields was the perfect place for our mini reunion. The front and back porches were great for hanging out. We were able to gather in the book room to watch the World Cup, another super space! There were 8 adults, so we could sit around the table in the kitchen. Never even ate out because enough room for all our foods! All the spaces were so great for talking and being together! Easy walk downtown. Great to have the washer and dryer! All beds were comfortable and glad to have had fans as it was a very hot week!! We slept in the trundle bed upstairs, and it was excellent. Small room but plenty of places for our clothing. You will have to crawl across the bed to get to the floor. We got free pickleball lessons at the local park. So fun for all of us!! Would recommend it to all!!"
