About the property

Two Bathrooms, King And Full Beds, Craftsman Charm

The Ashland Cottage is a spacious 1½ bath bi-level studio with king bed and pull out sofa. Perched behind our 1920s Craftsman home in a lovely historic neighborhood, the cottage is located just two blocks above the Ashland Library and within easy walking distance of Lithia Park, Shakespeare theaters and the downtown plaza. The downstairs living area provides a full bath with deep tub, gas fireplace and a pull-out couch with double mattress, while the upstairs bedroom includes a half bath, ample closet and drawer space and a pillow-top king bed with quality linens. This beautiful vacation abode features cathedral ceilings with spectacular, wide views of the Siskiyou Mountains. Alley access provides a private entrance and dedicated off-street parking.

The Ashland Cottage is a guest house and shares a large backyard with our residence. The cottage offers both privacy and connection, whichever supports your preference and schedule. Many guests, especially children, are drawn to play and explore in our idyllic backyard. Our free-range chickens, curious cats and large trampoline offer endless amusement. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing the magic of this special town.

Perfect Get-a-Way

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful experience in Ashland. Our stay in this exceptional cottage could not have been any more pleasant. There were two of us on a girls' get-a-way weekend and we found this charming, immaculate little house comfortable, cozy and well appointed with everything we needed. Surrounded by gorgeous, leafy trees we felt like we were staying in a tree house. Margaret and Mark are a delightful couple who obviously put their whole heart into creating this lovely space; they couldn't have done a better job!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in a nice, quiet neighborhood, walking distance to downtown and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Lots of nice touches and amenities. Also, the Machalas are wonderful hosts. My new favorite place to stay in Ashland and plan to book again next year.

A beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience here!

Warm, sunny, good vibes and energy all around.

Tasteful and clean with a beautiful garden in the charming neighborhood of Ashland.

Margaret was lovely and very accommodating.

We felt very comfortable and relaxed, and would stay at Margaret's cottage again on our next trip to Ashland.

Quiet, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here several times and plan to return - that's the best review you can give! It is very convenient to the theaters, restaurants and shops of "downtown" yet is far enough up the hill to be quiet. It takes only 10 minutes to walk to the theaters, for example.

The outside deck is delightful for morning coffee and breakfast. Very enjoyable!

This was a very sweet place.

  • 4 of 5

Easy owner communication. Nice to be in a quiet space. Everything needed was there. The gas stove was wonderful. Only negative is a personal preference, the king bed is very very soft. We like a firm bed.
