Interaction with Guests
We will meet and greet, get your situated and leave you alone, unless you want to have more interactions, a glass of local wine on our deck? Happy to recommend restaurants, things to do and see. We have lived in wonderful Ashland for over 30 yrs.
We live in the quaint Skidmore Historic District which is so close to the hub of town, The Ashland Plaza, that you won't even break a sweat getting there! And The Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is an easy stroll just past the Plaza.
You can give up the worry and stress of finding a parking space as we have off street parking for your car.
It's time to lock the car and leave it so you can enjoy the fun and ease of walking everywhere in this adorable little town! There is unsurpassed shopping, bookstores, restaurants on Calle, Ashland Creek and Lithia Park all within a five minute stroll.
Bus stop is across the street. And your feet are the best way to go! Bike trails and mountain biking is another great way to get around.

About the Host, Diane & David
David & I have lived in Ashland for over 30 years and absolutely love the small town charm, friendly and open people with a strong sense of community, the mountains, live music, art galleries, the university, growing wine industry, and all of the outstanding outdoor opportunities. We love white water rafting, hiking, skiing, kayaking, snow shoeing, bicycling and many more adventures that abound within a short drive in the Rogue Valley.
We are lovers of nature and hike several times a week in the Ashland watershed. We love good food, wine and spirits. We BBQ almost every day of the year on our fabulous deck, where we spend most of our mornings and nights during the spring, summer and fall months.
We are the co-founders of Oregon's first and only organic distillery producing award winning Organic Nation Spirits.
We are animal lovers and have a sweet and adorable Tibetan Spaniel~"McKenzie", named after my favorite river in Oregon, outside of Eugene, which was the first river that I attempted to white water canoe.
We absolutely love the Airbnb community! We have met some of the nicest, friendliest, open-minded, thoughtful, adventurous, and respectful people on the planet!
