About This Listing
Our beautiful cottage is fully licensed with the city of Ashland and in a fantastic location!
Our beautiful 2 story cottage is in a perfect location, only 2 blocks from Ashland Plaza and fully licensed. No need to use your car during your entire stay. Take relaxing strolls to downtown, Lithia Park, the Shakespeare Festival and visit the top notch galleries and restaurants Ashland has to offer. To enable you to stay in touch with the world, we provide you with a high speed internet connection!
You enter our cozy little house, through a light and airy sunroom, were you can enjoy your breakfast and your newspaper in the morning, as well as your other meals. On one of our beautiful summer days, you can sit at the picknick table and relax in the garden. From the sunroom, you will enter the kitchen, which is fully equipped with cooking utensils and spices for your convenience, if you want to enjoy a home cooked dinner. We also provide you with a coffee maker, a toaster, a microwave and a fridge, so you can feel right at home.
The kitchen area opens into a comfortable living room, which is tastefully furnished and has a woodburning stove for a romantic winter evening by the fire. A "klick-klack" coach can be converted into a double bed for a third guest. Downstairs, off the kitchen is a very nice little bathroom with a shower. The spacious bedroom is located upstairs and boasts a king size bed with a brand new comfortabe matress and european style bedding. The little upstairs balcony offers you a beautiful view of thegarden and the hills across the valley.
If you should visit during the winter months, don't miss out on a beautiful skiing adventure on Mount Ashland, only 25 minutes from Town.
If you want to venture outside of town, Southern Oregon has a lot to offer. Wine tasting in the world class Applegate Vineyards and Jacksonville or just outside of Ashland in Phoenix and Talent. For nature lovers there is plenty of beauty to explore. A trip to Crater Lake is an amazing experience or a rafting tour on the Rogue.
I hope we can be a part of making your trip to Ashland a wonderful experience, that will stay with you for many years to come!
We ask that you honor the peace and quiet of this home and neighborhood. Please clean your dishes and leave the place as you would want your home to be treated by responsible and kind guests. Contact the host if you have any questions or concerns.
No smoking indoors. No pets.
My husband, my 1 year old twins, and myself stayed at the cottage for the 4th of July and were so happy to have found such a wonderful place to stay! The cottage is well maintained and in great shape which is important having two little toddlers walking around. The sun room made for a great play area for the babies while mom and dad relaxed at the table noshing on some of our favorites from Ashland's own Shop 'n Kart (boy do I miss that place!). The cottage was the perfect space for a nice family get away and thank heavens for the AC! It's nice and close to downtown so we were only a few blocks away for the parade. The neighbor next door was a very sweet lady with her two adorable dogs. During our stay we didn't have a single noise disturbance, even during the holiday weekend!! All around a great place to stay and Sabine is a wonderful host! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Ashland. We most likely will be back ourselves! :)
We (my wife and I) had a wonderful time and Sabine's place was just as advertised. It was beautifully and tastefully appointed, clean, and convenient to everywhere we needed to go in Ashland. We used our car to go to the Oregon caves and Crater Lake but it was idle after that and we spent 6 full days there. We didn't actually meet Sabine until two days before we left but we talked on the phone and both she and her husband were very helpful in answering the one or two things we were confused about. My wife and I commented on how much more we got out of our experience at Sabine's than we would have had we stayed even at a hotel/motel or B&B that was as conveniently located. Sabine also brought us a couple of bottles of wine and some delicious chocolate. Incidentally this this Ashland and OSF trip was a combination honeymoon and first anniversary for my wife and I and Sabine and her lovely place made our occasion really memorable. We'd love to stay there again.
Everything was very nice. Other than a few small furniture additions/ rearranging, everything was as pictured. I would definitely recommend.
Please note the bathroom is very small and the shower will not work for those with functional or access needs. Very large individuals may also have a hard time in the bathroom. The upstairs gets very warm, but there are 3 fans and a screened balcony door that can be opened. But the downstairs stayed nice and cool.
Sabine was a great host. She does not live on site (there are renters in the main house), but she was great about texting and checking in to make sure everything was good.
Great location for walking around town!
Thank you so much for your nice review, Ruth! I am glad you liked your stay and had I known, that you had slight challenges with the size of the bathroom, I would have offered you to use my husband David's in the main house, since he was out of town and that bathroom is much roomier! Even though, I am not always on the property, our friend and caretaker Susan, is always their to fill in for us and accommodate the guests!
Hope you will be back again!
All the best, Sabine
This cozy, adorable nest is almost beyond belief ! The sun room has the dining table and a desk overlooking a garden; it is nothing short of magical to have all that light and beauty. The sleeping loft (Huge !) allows for guests on different schedules and is airy with two closets. It was exactly as advertised and Sabine was very welcoming. The location is very convenient to the downtown, yet is nestled away from traffic. I will stay, again, at this sweet nest as soon as possible !
Sabine was a most welcoming host and provided specific, detailed information to make our arrival seamless. A bottle of wine was there to welcome us and we settled right in. Sabine was available (via text, phone or email) to answer any questions and everything we needed was provided. The location was right in the heart of Ashland near the park, Shakespeare, shops, restaurants, farmer's market, etc. allowing us to walk everywhere, but the only grocery store we could find did require a car trip.
The cottage is appointed with upgraded linens and towels, and provides all the basic needs in the kitchen, as well. The decor conveys sophistication and Sabine's artistic touch is evidenced throughout via artwork, window coverings, and lighting.
The pictures accurately show the cozy, comfortable cottage and yard (the bed is LOVELY!) but you need to be aware that the yard does not actually seem to be for the cottage, as displayed. We had looked forward to relaxing in the garden under the umbrella; unfortunately, the yard was occupied the whole weekend by the next door neighbor who seems to share it. This is not an issue if you are there to partake in all Ashland has to offer, it only affected us because we were only there to visit with each other. The neighbor was not noisy or in any way intrusive other than we did not have the seclusion we expected; we retreated to the balcony off the bedroom instead.
Our whole stay was lovely, and I would definitely return for more of Sabine's gracious hospitality. This is an excellent choice for your stay in Ashland!
Thank you so much for taking the time for your detailed and over all positive review! I am pleased, that you liked your stay and I very much appreciate you taking the time to pointing out, what did not work for you. I will definitely address this and change our profile page for the cottage, so our guests get the right impression! My friend Susan, who is living in the main house on the property also takes care of the garden and made it as beautiful as it is! It is her pride and joy. And also our other tenant, who lives in the main house is very welcome to use the garden, since it is all a part of a little community, which reflects the whole spirit of Ashland. And we welcome everyone, even if it is only for a couple of days, to take part! So I hope, you take an over all pleasant experience home with you and will be back again in the future!
All the best, Sabine
I think that we have found our "home" in Ashland! Sabine's cottage is so comfortable, so close to everything, and yet so peaceful. Sabine made us welcome with delicious chocolates and wine, and checked in by text to make sure all our needs were met. While excellent restaurants are within walking distance, we made most of our own meals at the cottage because the kitchen was well- equipped for cooking and because we just wanted to be there. My husband and I come to Ashland 1-2 times a year to enjoy the plays and the town, and usually stay at a very nice Inn -- but from now on we will be at Sabine's cottage!
Susan, I am so glad, that you found your new home in Ashland!! You are always very welcome to stay with us and next time, I promise, you will have all the items in the kitchen to make your little house complete!!
Thank's again for stayin with us and I am lookining forward to your return!!

About the Host, Sabine
My husband Dave and I are both professional artists for the last 23 years. We moved 7 years ago from Sonoma County to our Ranch in the Rogue Valley to continue our breeding operation of Andalusian and Lusitano Horses. We love animals and the beauty of the nature that surrounds us. In our younger days, before our animals tied us down, we loved traveling extensively and still do, when we get a chance. I speak fluent German, and my Italian and Spanish are rather rusty, but I am still able to communicate.
