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.

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.
Year Purchased: 2011

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
