Property description

Helman Guest House is a charming early 1900s two bedroom home that can comfortably sleep up to six guests. It is only three blocks from Ashland's Plaza, restaurants, and world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival theater complex.

The large master bedroom, located on the ground floor, is appointed with a comfy king-size bed, its own television, and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. The home's second bathroom is also on the ground floor, and contains a vintage claw-foot bathtub and shower combination, and a washer/dryer.

The second bedroom is a sweet upstairs room with lots of natural light, and two queen-size beds.On the other side of the house from the Master bedroom so there is privacy.

The house has a very cozy living/dining area, a simple kitchen with the basics, and a charming breakfast nook. It has a covered front porch with a table and chairs. The house is very comfortable and easy to settle into for a pleasurable stay in Ashland. Close to downtown, the Ashland food Coop, and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, it's a great location to come and go from with ease.

The two studio units, across the courtyard from the main house, can each sleep up to three people. Each unit has a private bathroom, Studio A with a bathtub and shower combination, and Studio B with a walk-in shower. Studio A has a queen-size bed and a daybed, cable television, and dining table. Studio B has a king size bed, daybed, cable television, and a dining table.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Hello, I'm Alice and my daughter Nancy and I own and operate Helman House. I have lived in Southern Oregon most of my life. I was born in Klamath Falls, went to school and raised my family in the Bay Area, and moved back to Oregon to be close to family when my first grandchild was born. I love Ashland and the quality of life and people here.

Why Ashland, OR, USA:
Helaman House is ideally located 3 short blocks from downtown in a quiet mixed use neighborhood. An easy walk to numerous restaurants and bars, the Varsity theater, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and Lithia park. It is also a great place to settle in and enjoy cooking your own meals and having a sanctuary to rest and visit with family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The House and Studios are each rented as separate units. The main house can sleep up to six people, and each Studio can sleep up to 3. This makes our property ideal for family reunions and larger groups of friends when all units are available.
