This property is stunningly beautiful and peaceful. The communication in terms of setting up the rental was very efficient and easy and our experience in the home was perfect. I think it's the best place we've ever rented. We'll certainly stay there again next time we're in the area and recommend it without hesitation. The house is very comfortable, well equipped and immaculately cleaned. The surrounding vistas are beautiful. We loved this place! Thank you for having us.

An incredible property with gorgeous views inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

This Ashland property is by far the most incredible home we have rented via Home Away over the past five years! It's secluded location and beautifully designed and appointed interior were exceptional. Beds and linens offered great comfort. Two deck areas for enjoying the beautiful hillsides surrounding the home offered tranquility and views of deer grazing each morning and evening Thank you for sharing your beautifully designed home! We hope to be able to return next fall.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect rental for our visit to Ashland. There were four of us and the place 'fit us' beautifully. The house is clean, tastefully furnished, with super comfortable beds and nice linens. The location was wonderful. It's close enough to the downtown theaters and restaurants (less than a 5 minute drive), yet away from any street noise in a lovely remote, country setting. The views are wonderful, and it's very quiet and serene. The host Richard checked in on us once to make sure all was well the morning after we arrived, which was nice.

We will definitely book this place again on our next visit to lovely Ashland.

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, restful place only 5 minutes from the town center.

In a quiet neighborhood with great surroundings.

A nice place to stay when visiting the area or attending the OSF.

Try the Alchemy restaurant for great food.

Great for a couple - close to town - Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Lovely rental, clean and comfortable, lots of turkeys and nature to observe. Owners provided accommodation storage for our bikes which was very kind. No air conditioning so during our stay it just happened to be very hot temps but if you close up the rental in the AM it stays cool quite well during the day. I believe they have a fan too which helped a lot.

Close to Ashland and don't miss Jackson while you're there. Would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous Property with Wons of Deck Room

  • 5 of 5

Serenity was a beautiful and relaxing place for our family -- great kitchen and eating area. Also, tons of deck room outside to have breakfast and view wildlife. We saw deer, listened to coyotes and even saw a black bear! Richard and Mary Ann were great hosts. The property is a short drive to town (5-10 minutes). We had hoped to rent bicycles and bike into town, but it was a bit hilly and we weren't quite comfortable biking on the main road. Nevertheless, we had a great stay. Thanks Richard and Mary Ann!
