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.
