About the Property

Quiet, Soft-surface Environment - Relaxing Garden Atmosphere - Close To OSF

Chakra Garden of Ashland’s charming 2-room Temple cottage offers privacy and spacious comfort in a romantic, temple-like setting.

Expect friendly atmosphere, interior cleanliness, bamboo floors, interesting lighting, filtered drinking water, a moderately equipped kitchenette (toaster oven, micro, electric kettle, mini-fridge/freezer, 4 each dishes, cups, etc.), and a relaxing, soft-surface environment.

Temple House at Chakra Garden was built in 1907 as the carriage building for our vintage residence (c.1884). In 2012 took it from a dirt floor to fully modern interior and it now serves as guest lodging and teaching office. You’ll live in a space that embodies body/mind/spirit wholeness. You’ll open your front door into our graciously sprawling gardens, in development as a healing sanctuary.

Temple House’s spacious and relaxing interior is supported by fabric hangings that create a tent/temple-like environment. The owners are yogic body-mind therapists in private practice and Temple House is sometimes used as a setting for our therapeutic work.

Temple House at Chakra Garden sleeps up to 4 people in two rooms. It sports new (2015) Serta queen bed and a comfy IKEA sofabed (top-quality futon). Sheets are 300+ thread count organic cotton. Towels are thick and plentiful (3 per person).

Please note that the queen bed is in the same room as the kitchenette and bathroom bathroom access.

A new mini-split HVAC keeps the space at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. There is Wi-Fi for your connection convenience.

Entry to Temple House is via the Garden Gate into the back yard. The ground and lighting can be uneven. Parking is in our 3-space driveway or safely at curbside.

Please be aware that we love dogs, but cannot accept your canine companion as a guest.

Planning Action #01-674

We can successfully accommodate groups up to 10 people in a variety of housing options. Please contact Candace for more information about group stays.

We also have a studio house that sleeps four people available at Chakra Garden. Please see our VRBO listing for details: Lhasa House (#457370). And a forest retreat property 17 miles northwest of Ashland that sleeps up to 8 people in 1050 square feet on 60 acres of woodland: Homestead Woodland Cottage (#590401)

Temple House at Chakra Garden is located 4 blocks north of Downtown Plaza, the heart of Ashland. From this hub, everything you need for entertainment, dining, and shopping is around you.

Temple House is around the corner and almost across the street from a south-bound Ashland/Medford bus stop and a block north of Ashland’s Youth Hostel.

Ashland’s Natural Food Coop is a beautiful 5-block neighborhood stroll through the historic Skidmore Academy District. Food options are nearby: the Breadboard Restaurant for breakfast/lunch and Big Al’s Diner for lunch/diner are 2 & 1 block north, and we’ve a Minute Market 1 block south.

Temple House at Chakra Garden is also just 2-blocks up the street from the Kagyu Sukha Choling Center for the Practice of Tibetan Buddhism, 3-blocks from Ashland Institute of Massage Therapy (AIM), and 4-blocks from the United Bicycle Institute.

Car: Not Necessary

Temple House is an easy walk to downtown Ashland, the Shakespeare Festival, and most of our village's other attractions. Although Chakra Garden is located near an artery road, strolling along the alley at the foot of our property leads you into a gentle neighborhood with well-kept houses built early in the 20th century. We're an easy bike ride to Bear Creek Greenway and our property supports cycling - we even have a couple of bikes you might be able to us.

Temple House is on the grounds of an historic Ashland home and it's here that we've established a private healing center. Our Chakra Gardens are in development and available for your enjoyment - 2015 promises lots of color showing itself on our grounds. We are experienced therapeutic healing practitioners and offer many services to compliment your Ashland visit including bodywork, meditation or yoga, and counseling. You can learn more by visiting our website.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are yogis and body-mind healers. Dr. Zeb is a counselor and Rolfer; Candace an embodiment guide and Tantra educator. We provide private sessions, group classes, and healing retreats. Our regular Monday and Wednesday 5:15-6:30pm meditation classes are open to everyone ($10 donation – arrive a few minutes early). And consider scheduling therapeutic bodywork or a healing appointment with Dr. Zeb or an energy tune-up with Candace to enhance your visit. Find more information at our website

Why the Owner Chose Ashland, OR, USA:
We purchased this property because of its versatility, history, and location to downtown Ashland. The main house is a vintage 2-story (1884 – the Payne-Penter House), a signature building as one nears Ashland’s downtown plaza, distinguished by the upstairs stained-glass window. There were two older out-buildings (“Temple House” is one and “Lhasa House” VRBO#457370 is the other) that we changed from empty shells to havens of modern comfort. We dream of the large, formerly empty back yard as a garden sanctuary for healing body, mind and spirit and that is an on-going project you are welcome to enjoy during your visit. You’ll discover all the fittings and furnishings in Temple House are brand new.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The setting at Chakra Garden is beautiful and we make all of the garden available as a healing sanctuary for your peaceful stay in the unique community of Ashland. We are an easy 10-minute walk to the heart of downtown Ashland, Lithia Park and OSF. We are experienced therapeutic healing practitioners. We offer many services to compliment your Ashland visit including bodywork, meditation or yoga, counseling, sex therapy and Tantra education. Please learn more at our property's home site
