Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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

About The Owner

My husband and I moved here 15 years ago and renovated our home on several acres. We added the detached garage with your apartment upstairs. We work during the day but will be available to answer your questions on check in.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Ashland

We fell in love with the area, the people and the opportunities for endless outdoor activity. We love being so close to the Shakespeare Festival and the great restaurants downtown, but yet in a quiet, peaceful, country setting.

What makes this apartment unique

You will be able to walk out your door and enjoy an invigorating hike, bring your bike and head up the mountain for endless biking trails. Enjoy sunbathing, reading or drinking a glass of wine on your private deck which overlooks a forest and seasonal creek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a nice time in your beautiful place! We will be back to stay with you.

This is a 5 star VRBO for sure!

The tree house you wished for when you were a kid

  • 4 of 5

You really are in the trees. Out every window you have beautiful views of the valley and the trees. It was so special with the brilliant fall foliage. The rental is very quiet and private.

Everything a couple needs for a comfortable stay is included. We were worried it was too far from the center of town and the plays but it wasn't. It's an easy drive to everything.

Don't miss Jacksonville. It's incredibly beautiful in the fall.

Perfect Ashland Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse retreat is our new favorite spot in Ashland. This was our third time travelling to Ashland and our first time at the Treehouse. This is where we will stay when we return! The space was welcoming and roomy for two people. It was so comfortable we immediately felt at home. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well! The views were better than pictured. Michael greeted us with a friendly smile and assured that all our needs were met upon our arrival. He was available to us throughout the week but the separate space insured the privacy we were seeking. The drive to downtown was short and easy. We highly recommend checking out Michael and Marty's spot, it is a true gem!

Lovely, private, comfortable, large one bedroom on the edge of town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The bed is large and very comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with implements, and the deck is really lovely. The apartment is over a building separate from the owner's house and is quite private. Mike was really nice and easy to communicate with. It's on the edge of town and takes only 10 minutes to get to downtown, but you really feel like you are out in the country. Also close to a really nice hiking trail. Highly recommend this place!

Amazing view and privacy

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely upstairs apt in the outskirts of Ashland for 9 nights and the view is truely hard to beat, overlooking the valley. Because it is in the outskirts of this wonderful small city, you have complete privacy. No other house overlooks you, nor do you see anyone else close by. What you do see are the wild turkeys and occasional deer. You hear no city noises either.

The apt is well set up, and very comfortable, with a feeling of great openess because of all the windows. There are two outside terrraces, one of which is very large. there are also three groceries nearby, easy driving distances, and an easy entrance to the freeway, or to downtown, or to old hwy 99. Meander around this lovely valley and stay for awhile. It is definately worthwhile. Kristine and Santiago

A lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse is a beautifully situated and appointed house. It's a 5 minute drive from everything that downtown Ashland has to offer, but we felt like we were in a private countryside retreat. The views are spectacular, the house is the perfect size for a couple, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Hosts Marty and Michael were welcoming and made sure we were settled in when we arrived. We loved sitting on the deck and listening to the birds and watching the deer that roam around. This place is a gem, and we would love to stay again!
