About this listing
Comfortably furnished 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath a 10 minutes stroll to Ashland's theaters and plaza. Ample off-street parking, a bbq on the deck and a central living room make this an ideal family and friend meeting place.
The Main is has a great location, near enough to the Plaza to walk (7 blocks, 10 minutes, or .5 mile). The house is in a quiet neighborhood, the parking is off-street and the property is mostly fenced. Once you buy you groceries, you probably won't use your car until you pack to leave.
The house comfortably sleeps 6 in beds, and 2 more on a new, comfortable hide-a-bed.
The Main includes the first floor of the house. A small one bedroom flat is upstairs and has a separate, private entrance.
The WIFI and parking area are shared.
The WIFI is located in the Main flat, behind the TV set.
The Loft parking is against the tall trees, the Main parking against the fence. Please leave room so cars can come and go.
Interaction with guests
Owner does not live on the property.
The historic district in Ashland is a residential neighborhood. We are near a B & B, town houses and homes. It is quiet and only 7 blocks to the Plaza, restaurants, plays and shopping.
Park your car and walk or bike. Grocery store is 7 to 8 blocks, so you might want to get groceries first, but after that walking is the best way visit down town. There is a bike rack with a cable in the parking area, just bring a lock.
Other things to note
The grocery stores are a short drive away. Ashland's grocery stores are The Coop (closest), Market of Choice (great bakery), Shop and Kart (my favorite) and Albertson's (very good meat and fish market). All the groceries have beer and wine (best is probably Shop n Kart or Market of Choice). BiMart also has a good selection of wines (surprise). Liquor is sold in the state liquor store down town, behind Standing Stone.
No smoking of anything on the property.
No pets in the house.
Please remove your shoes inside the house, especially during plum season (July through September). They are not edible and stain everything.
Bikes are welcome but must stay outside. We have provided a rack (on the fence in the parking area) and a cable. You only need to bring a lock.
Be kind to the neighbors, keep it relatively quiet after 10pm. No parties are permitted at the house.
There is a Blue Book inside the flat with information about the Main.
