Our quaint, little 1-bedroom home high on the hill just outside of town sits amid 50 acres of wild forest. The home has no shortage of windows with gorgeous views over Ashland to Grizzly Peak and the greater Rogue Valley. Whether you wander the woods on the trails we've built or just take in the views and birdsong from the deck, you'll enjoy the quiet in this special space. It's a ten minute drive or 35 minute walk to downtown Ashland. Please read this listing thoroughtly before booking!
You'll enjoy this unique combination of modern convenience and wild forest that feels a million miles away. You may find yourself spending much of your time simply enjoying the views from the wrap-around deck. We trust you will care for our home during your stay; make yourself at home!
The kitchen is always stocked with coffee and an assortment of teas (loose leaf and bagged) for you to make, plus whatever tools you might need. Feel free to use our oils and spices in cooking. The bedroom includes one queen bed; additional guests can use the very comfortable full-sized futon in the living room as a second bed.
You have full access to the home and trails (unmarked) through 50 acres of forest; only the garage and second home are not part of the rental. The second home on the property is where your hosts live; it is several hundred yards away and not visible.
The terrain is steep and wild and stunning. Do not wander too far off-trail, because the property has quite a bit of poison oak and is not fenced. Don't be terribly alarmed if you see a black bear during your stay; they are much more scared of you than you are of them! We don't see them often, but they do occasionally wander by.
Общение с гостями
Your hosts live in another home just down the road. We'll leave you with everything you need, but don't hesitate to call should any need arise.
For maintenance reasons, your hosts may need to access the garage (under the rental home) during normal business hours, in which case you would be given advanced notice.
Другие важные подробности
Our driveway is unpaved, nearly a mile long, and very steep and bumpy in a few parts. Some guests find the drive up it slightly unnerving if wheels slip. That said, any regular, two-wheel-drive car can make it up (we drive a front-wheel-drive Scion with regular, small tires). If you plan to visit between December and February, check the forecast; you may need chains, snow tires, or AWD.
From our parking area in front of the garage, you'll climb 16 stairs to reach our front door.
The tap water in the home comes from our own well; it's delicious!
Special note to guests with severe cat allergies: There is a short-haired cat that typically lives in this home. He (and his litter box) go to live with friends while guests rent our home.
Please contact us if you have any Qs; we want to make your stay a great one!
Our home lies in a living, wild forest, so please join us in taking every precaution with regard to fire and wildlife. Refrain from smoking, and exercise care with any heating elements or things that might cause sparks. Black bears are commonly active on the property, and so, too, are the occasional mountain lion and rattlesnake (among other animals). To avoid bear incidents, always securely lock windows on south, east, and west sides of the house when leaving or sleeping. Poison oak is prevalent throughout much of these 50 acres.
This is not just a guest house; we live here 99% of the time and only rent out very occasionally. We really appreciate your courtesy and care in our home! Please remove your shoes once inside the door. No pets allowed.
