Property description

'We are currently booked through May, 2015.'
Just 3 blocks above the Shakespeare festival. Cozy, comfortable and warm describes this specially designed craftsman style cottage. Nestled in a private setting surrounded by mountains and overlooking the Rogue Valley this cottage is the perfect get away spot. Enjoy the spectacular views while lounging on the front porch glider or relaxing with your morning coffee on our side deck while deer playfully pass through.

Cathedral ceilings, hard wood floors, fireplace, a 32' HD flat screen TV with DVD player and comfortable L-shaped couch with built in recliner combine to make our living room open airy and relaxing. Bring DVD's from home or rent them at our local video store. Hi-speed Internet service is also available.

Know that your favorite book awaits you in a specially built cushioned window seat with views of mature ponderosa pines. Fully equipped kitchen includes stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and other appliances and utensils. If you are not in the mood to cook, ask about our catering services where we will prepare meals especially for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Russ and JoAnn Manzone, owners. We fell in love with Ashland the moment we saw it. We moved here in 2004 from Southern California and have never looked back. Russ is a Real Estate Broker with John L. Scott and I am a fiber artist/felter. I have a studio at Ashland Art Center where I teach and create.

Why the Owner Chose Siskiyou-Hargadine Historic District (Ashland, OR, USA):
We love living in Ashland and like to share this love with our guests. We were attracted to Ashland's beauty, inclusiveness and sense of community. We built this cottage in 2006 thinking that when we retire, we may move into it and rent out our larger home. The cottage has high ceilings and an open floor plan. We tried to create a comfortable open living space that is warm and cozy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Amazing mountain views, close to downtown.
