This 550 sq. ft., new, fully furnished, self-contained, one bedroom guest house with 2 decks, is above our detached garage behind our house. There are no shared walls and it is very private. We are located 3 1/2 miles south of downtown just outside the Ashland city limits in a quiet neighborhood of upscale homes on 5 acre lots.
You will especially enjoy stepping onto your completely private, 300 sf deck which overlooks a seasonal creek and the forest with birds, deer and squirrels in abundance. This is the perfect place to unwind, sip your morning coffee or a glass of wine, sunbathe, BBQ or just let the world go by. Comfortable patio furniture, sun umbrella and gas grill are provided for your enjoyment. A second deck looks north to amazing views of Grizzly Peak. You will think you are in a magical treehouse.
Your private, light-filled retreat features 3 skylights, lots of large windows, a ceiling fan, window A/C and vaulted ceiling in living, kitchen and dining area. There are tile floors, designed and installed by owners Marty and Michael, in the kitchen and bathroom, wood flooring in the living and bedroom. The bedroom is cozy with a handcrafted queensize bed constructed by Michael, with plush pillowtop mattress and luxurious 400+ count linens, plus comfy and warm quilts and blankets. In the dining area, you'll find a handmade maple and cherry dining table surrounded by four comfortable Windsor chairs.
The bath has a full sized tub with shower and a handmade walnut vanity with a granite countertop and upscale fixtures. Plush towels, shampoo and bath soap are provided for your convenience.
The kitchen is fully stocked with basics, such as sugar, cream, salt, pepper, tea and coffee. There is a full size gas range if you want to stay in and cook your meals.
You won't have to leave the world behind unless you want to. We feature wireless internet, Netflix streaming movies and cable TV, as well as a DVD player and stereo.
We have a herd of deer and a flock of wild turkeys who frequently roam the property, otherwise you will be left alone to make yourself completely at home. We restored the house next door and added your rental in 2011. We’ve lived here for 16 years and will be happy to give you pointers about our local wineries, hot springs and where to buy local healthy produce. We will also direct you to hiking and biking trails close by and offer any advice that can make your stay more enjoyable.
No smoking or pets please
