Perfect House! Perfect Location!
We could not have had a more perfect place to stay for our 5 days in Ashland. The Victorian Secret is a beautiful, comfortable home with a great kitchen (we cooked most meals) ,nice places to sit and talk over the plays we had seen, comfy beds (though a little tall for us short people), and a very warm, hospitable owner to deal with.
The house was just as described: clean, beautifully decorated (fun artwork!), well equipped and very comfortable for 4 people---all wrapped up in a perfect location. I will definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives and we are already trying to pin down a date for next year's visit to Ashland.
This was our second visit to Ashland and once again we were very pleased with the performances that we saw (3 Shakespeares and "My Fair Lady" which had to be the best production that any of us had seen. Terrific!!! We had been concentrating on the Shakespeare plays, but now we plan to broaden our perspective because of the quality of that "oldie but goodie."
We didn't venture from Ashland on this trip---just enjoyed the nice shops, the 1st Friday Art Walk, walks in Lithia Park and even a local movie. We also enjoyed tasty dinners in Marconi's and Omar's, two local restaurants.
We loved watching the four deer that visited our yard frequently---it was fun to see them nibbling the chestnuts in the front yard and the apples from the backyard and just lolling around anyplace they wanted.
Thanks Julie and Jory. We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Nana & Joel,
We are so pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful time. We love those deer too. They are such a nice family. The Fall is the best time for them because there is something for them to munch on in the front and the back yard.
Did you notice the step-stools to climb up in the beds? We put those there for easy climbing ;-) The memory foam topper does make the beds a bit tall, but you can remove them if you don't like memory foam, or find the beds to be too tall. Also, it seems that in the summer, sometimes memory foam gets too hot for some people. That's why we chose the toppers, so they can be peeled off if they are too hot.
We hope you return again and again. You were such wonderful guests!
Julie & Jory
