About Tim Rutter
I have been living in Ashland since 1978 after have living in the Applegate Valley for 4 years. My wife and I came to Southern Oregon with our lst son to escape the large cities in California and try rural living. Ashland seemed to fit better for us work wise and raising children so we settled and lived here since. Joanne, my past wife, who co-managed the Jessel House, worked for OSF for 17 years so we were quite involved in the theater and plays. While living in Southern Oregon I worked at various jobs in the valley and retired from counseling at RCC. In California I was working in corporate marketing research and sales.
Tim Rutter purchased this House in 1986
Why Tim Rutter chose Siskiyou-Hargadine Historic District
When we moved to Ashland in 1978 we lived in the house next door to the Jessel House and met the several different members of the Jessel family over the years. On one occasion we took one of our sons to see Alma, Susie's daughter that was trying to keep up the healing. I mentioned I would be interested to purchasing it if they ever wanted to sell. In 1986 they did and I thought of making it a travelers accommodation with the history of Susie Jessel kept alive. Initially, it just consisted of one unit while we lived upstairs. Over the years we expanded the Jessel House for visitors to Ashland and I built the house behind to live in. Its always been such a special property with its history and location in the heart of Ashland.
What makes this House unique
Being close to town, theaters and SOU while still being in a residential area makes it a place one can walk if they chose. The season creek which flows almost year round with TID water during the summer gives it a almost rural feeling.

Charm on top of charm
We were so grateful that our week long vacation during a very, very smoky week in Ashland took place in the Jessel House. The house is lovely, comfortable and so charming. The beds and linens were great and the house is beautifully appointed. The yard and gardens are gorgeous. While outdoor time had to be limited due to air quality, we walked to town in masks most days. This location can't be beat because it has neighborhood charm and quiet at night. We'll stay in this location any chance we get. Tim was responsive, friendly and helpful and we thought highly of communications from him.
Beautiful home. Quiet location.
We were a party of 6 adults and we loved the Jessel Mountain View home. Nice living room with room for 6 adults to sit comfortably. Nice large kitchen. Comfortable bedrooms. Only 2 bathrooms. Lovely views of hills. Nice garden with chairs. Almost a mile to OSF venue. But we highly recommend.
Charming house in great neighborhood
The Jessel house is lovely, fully appointed, and convenient to most anything in Ashland or surrounding area. Situated in a quiet neighborhood with a sunny deck and inviting yard, the house was impeccably clean and ready for our arrival. It was spacious enough for six adults and the beds were comfortable . We recommend it without reservation.
Property was clean and enjoyed the updates.
The staff was very helpful. The swamp cooler struggled to keep the living spaces cool when temperatures reached high 90s.
Excellent Ashland House!
We have been long time Ashland vacationers and have stayed in many houses and B&Bs. The Jessel House is one of the nicest places we've stayed in, very quiet and not a bad walk into town. There were 3 comfortable bedrooms all with comfortable queen beds which is a nice change from some of the other places that have twin beds in some of the bedrooms. The kitchen is rather sparse but it was sufficient for our breakfasts and one dinner eaten in. The garden is lovely and well maintained. I would highly recommend this house for visitors.
Very nice property in a great location
My family really enjoyed our stay here. The 3BR/2 bath setup meant there was plenty of room for the 5 of us, and the house was in a great location within easy walking distance of downtown. The owner was also very friendly and communicative and responded promptly to questions. We would definitely stay here again.
Our only constructive feedback was minor: The mattresses were pretty firm and meant we didn't sleep as well as we would have liked. And if you're planning on using the kitchen, you might not find all the equipment you're looking for. We missed not having a tea kettle, for example. Again though, minor complaints, and overall our stay was very enjoyable.
Jessel House is located in a quiet residential area of Ashland's historic district above the boulevard. Easy 6-7 Block walking distance to theaters.
