About Lois Van Aken

I have lived and worked in this wonderful town for 30 years. I bought this home in 1986 with the dream that someday I would turn it into a travelers accommodation. Over the years I have carefully remodeled and restored this 1900 cottage and I welcomed my first visitors in 2008.

Lois Van Aken purchased this house in 1986

Why Lois Van Aken chose Ashland

What I love about this property is its close proximity to the heart of downtown, the coop, and the park while still maintaining a quiet, natural setting. All are within 3 minutes walking distance so you can leave your car parked in the driveway for days.

What makes this house unique

In addition to the pleasing home and proximity to downtown, you can sit outside on the porch or on the patio and enjoy the beautiful gardens surrounding the home with the green mountains in the background.

Great place! Comfortable, clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Lois is a wonderful host. The two cottages we shared were perfect for a gathering of five friends. On a quiet street a few minutes walk to all of downtown Ashland.

Lovely, cozy cottage within walking distance to the theaters

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Central Avenue Cottage for many years now because it fits the bill for two couples who want privacy and to be within walking distance of the theaters and restaurants and shopping district. The small kitchen is great for fixing breakfast and light meals. The ambience is charming and the lighting for reading is more than adequate.

I prefer a 3 night minimum stay but less than that is possible depending on what openings I have on the calendar so contact me to ask if you want to reserve for less than 3 nights and I can see if it is possible.
