About the Property

Lovely Guesthouse in Historic District

This charming guesthouse is recently built in the craftsman style of the 1900's by the architect owners Joyce Ward and Martin Thommes.

As a separate house, it offers complete privacy and is a favorite for longer stays, family relatives, and honeymooners.

The cottage is located 3 blocks from downtown, theaters, restaurants and shops. It is tastefully furnished, with a kitchenette, opening skylights, alcoves, large windows, mountain views, convenient close parking, and a redwood deck in a quiet garden setting. The cottage can accommodate three persons.

The Auburn Street Cottage is a chemical-free sanctuary. We maintain it with natural, non-toxic finishes and cleaning agents. In the spirit of co-creating an enduring, healthy living environment, we ask that our guests refrain from using scented personal products (perfume/cologne) during your stay with us. We thank you for taking care of yourselves and others in this way.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Joyce has been a practicing architect in Ashland since 1976. Since 1990 she has incorporated feng shui consultations in her practice, dealing with the anlysis and placement of energies in living environments. Martin is currently active in the Ashland Rowing Club, and a student of Metaphysics, after spending 23 years in a Catholic Monastery and 20 years as a practicing Psychologist. Devon, their daughter, is teaching english and writing in Madison, Wisconsin.

Why the Owner Chose Siskiyou-Hargadine Historic District (Ashland, OR, USA):
We moved to ashland in 1975, and have lived in the same 1911 house since then. We built the Cottage in 1985. We have been legally licensed and operating since then. Half of our clients are returning guests. Ashland has what we were looking for: art, theater, university, recreation, sports, moderate weather.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is affordable and centrally located: shopping, groceries, recreation, trails, university, schools, theaters, restaurants, downtown are all in walking distance.
