About Mark and Elizabeth

Mark and Elizabeth Schoenleber are artists (sculpture, pottery, drawing and painting) Mark taught art at Ashland High School from 1983-2013 and Elizabeth has been creating beautiful hand thrown stoneware pottery since 1988. We enjoy traveling and meeting people from all over the world. Being hosts allow us to work at home in our art studios and meet guests from all over the world. We love finding a place in our travels that exceeds our expectation and we love being able to be that for others.

Mark and Elizabeth purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Mark and Elizabeth chose Historic Downtown District

After the favorable response from guests in our Terra Cottage Inn (vrbo #65608) (2005), we decided to create a traveler's accommodation from our home of twenty years (2007). The High Street Cottage is a lovingly refurbished 1931 cottage that is tastefully decorated with just enough modern touches to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

What makes this cottage unique

beyond the 'park and walk to everything' location... the High Street Cottage sits on a great piece of property. The kitchen is white tile and marble counters with an O'keefe Merit gas range, hand thrown stoneware dinner, kitchen and bake ware; set up with cooks in mind. Koi pond, Gardens (flowers, herbs, salad and vegetables (in season)), decks and patios to relax and enjoy your stay, a great laundry facility and a full outdoor kitchen. At the center of the property are our art studios and too many great amenities to list.

The Unique High Street Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The columnist Herb Caen wrote of the San Franciscan native who died and went to Heaven. Saint Peter met him at the Pearly Gates and gave him a tour of his new eternal home. When they finished, Saint Peter asked, “Well, what do you think?” “Nice, but it ain’t San Francisco.”

For fifteen years, we have stayed at vacation rental homes throughout the west and overseas. We have had no bad experiences. All our hosts have been friendly and helpful. All the homes have been pleasant and homey. And our judgment never varies. “Nice, but it ain’t the High Street Cottage.”

Each year, we arrive at the cottage to find something new. Understated and subtle, or major. Landscaping, interior upgrades, porches. Always changing yet never changing. The comfort of the familiar. We walk through the door and we’re home. Back at our cozy High Street Cottage, with Mark and Elizabeth.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is immaculately clean, charming and in a great location-quiet and private but near everything. How could we ever stay in a hotel again after staying at High Street Cottage?

Beautiful,yet simple, house. Amazing gardens to "pick your own" fresh salads. Fantastic areas to grill and do laundry. Very clean and bright. Great hosts and a perfect location. Walking distance to Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Lithia Park! We'll be back!
