About Melody and Jeff Jones

We've lived in Ashland for over 40 years, raised our son here and have some lovely friends, SO many who lived in the cottage and moved into Ashland!

Melody and Jeff Jones purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Melody and Jeff Jones chose Ashland

Pine Street is two blocks from town and Lithia Park, it's quiet, yet near everything!! We have lovely gardens, many places to sit outside, all the privacy you need.

What makes this cottage unique

Close to everything, but still quiet. This is the BEST neighborhood, near town and restaurants, walk home safely at night and feel like you're far from town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Melody, for a wonderful place to stay as we experienced Ashland for

the first time. Your tip about the reservoir was a God-send on that very hot

day. And most of all, your generosity of spirit is so appreciated".

My very favorite place to stay in Ashland

  • 5 of 5

The Pine Street Cottage is in walking distance of the heart of Ashland--including the festival, Lithia Park, downtown shops and restaurants, and the best food coop in Oregon. The cottage is situated above a quiet office in the historic district on a large lot that features morning sunlight in the living room, gardens, shade trees, and good views of local wildlife--especially the birds that frequent the greener parts of town. The kitchenette is fully equipped and the living area and bedroom are furnished with every convenience. Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, this one features a full bath with tub. It is compact and therefore perfect for one or for two who thrive on intimacy. Ashland insiders Melody and Jeff are excellent, experienced hosts who respond quickly on the rare occasions when repairs are needed and are gracious, considerate, and fun to be around. The neighbors are quiet and considerate and the back yard is a wonderful place to sit and read or to dine al fresco. In short, an ideal vacation rental in a great location in a beautiful part of Oregon.

Highly Recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay in this cozy cottage. We loved the location - an easy walk to town and theatres.

The lovely owners, Melody and Jeff, live right next door, and immediately made us feel welcome, comfortable and at home. They provided many nice touches, such as fresh flowers and home grown produce. They bent over backwards to provide anything we might need.

We are already planning a return stay next year. This is our new Ashland home!

Loved my stay!

  • 5 of 5

I felt so at home in Melody and Jeff's Pine Street Cottage. It was bright and cozy, equipped with everything I needed to settle in for 6 weeks. Melody made sure I was comfortable with flannel sheets, lots of towels, all the kitchen accessories I required (and I love to cook!). They both were so welcoming, warm and helpful. The location is amazing—a quiet street, yet an incredibly short and pleasant walk to downtown and Lithia park. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Home Birth at Pine Street Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Big thank you to the owners who let us have a home birth in the cottage. Since we live 2 hours from a hospital, it was very important to find a suitable rental. It was perfect!

Ashland, Oregon

A wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

A bit late in writing this review on behalf of my mother. She was visiting and chose to stay with Melody and Jeff for her entire stay. She could not have picked a more ideal vacation rental. The apartment was perfect, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Location a plus, within walking distance to the Plaza and Theater. Melody and Jeff went out of their way to not only welcome her warmly but made sure she did not want for anything. A wonderful stay - thank you on behalf of my mother and myself.

Home is where the heart is

  • 5 of 5

Home is where heart is and this cottage and its owners sure have a lot of heart! I was fortunate to stay here for a month in the summer of 2013 and enjoy the cool breezes, organic garden and warm hospitality of the hosts. Not really on vacation and with a month of work to do, I was able to hunker in and focus with no distractions and to imbibe the lovely surroundings. The location is perfect, you can walk to everything. They say 'God is in the details' and so many little details are so well placed here - from the fresh cut flowers on the table to the olive oil in the pantry and shady hammock in the garden, there is thoughtfulness and caring radiating throughout. The cottage is cozy, comfortable and homey. The best of both worlds, it combines a lovely healing retreat.with easy access to all that downtown Ashland has to offer. The hosts give a guest as much space as they need, yet are warm, friendly and kind. It is a special bonus to get to know them. No wonder they say Pine Street is the best block in Ashland!
