About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-15)

Owner occupied 3 story chalet nestled in the Cascade Mountains at 4000' elevation. Fantastic view overlooking Siskiyou Mtns, Klamath Mtns, Colestine Valley and Mt. Ashland. Awesome sunsets!

Perfect for hikers (5 minutes from Pacific Crest Trail and Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument/ Pilot Rock), bikers (dozens of trails from Mt. Ashland down to city of Ashland), skiers (Mt. Ashland Lodge is 15 minutes away), rafters (Klamath River put-in is 30 minutes south) and Shakespearean types who prefer privacy with a view! 15 minutes from Ashland down I-5 Siskiyou Summit.

Chalet has 1000 sq. ft. deck and is located in the Cascade Mountains and built so as not to change the natural surroundings.

Security, cleaning and pet deposit required.

Why the Owner Chose Ashland: This property has been a dream project. I purchased the bare land in 2007 and began construction in the Fall of that year. The Chalet was completed in February 2009. As with all new construction on acreage, the little projects are constantly ongoing! Owner lives on the property, but away from guests for their privacy.

If visiting in Winter months (and possibly Spring and Fall), it is advisable to drive a 4-wheel drive vehicle equipped with tire chains. Although 4-wheel drive is not usually necessary, Mother Nature has surprised us with moderate to heavy accumulations of snow!

The Unique Benefits of this Chalet: If you want peace and quiet with a spectacular view, then this is the place for you! Perfect for family gatherings while only 15 minutes to Ashland traveling North on I-5.

Why Paul Steckbauer chose Southern Oregon

This property has been a dream project. I purchased the bare land in 2007 and began construction in the Fall of that year. The Chalet was completed in February 2009. As with all properties on country acreage, the little projects are constantly ongoing!

What makes this chalet unique

The Colestine Valley has its own unique physical climate. It may be raining in the Rogue Valley and the sun will be shining in the Colestine Valley.

Additionally, many people do not know that there is a large Buddhist Temple below the chalet in the valley. I always recommend to visitors to visit the temple for a half day trip. It is 3 miles down Colestine Rd. off the Mt. Ashland access road. Owner occupies a separate part of the property for your privacy.

Take the time to clear your mind and tune in to the positive energy of the valley.

Owner's Response: The DVD Player was replaced. The grill (like all grills) has a hard time staying lit in high wind situations. The security cameras are only functional when there are no guests at the chalet.

Absolutely beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that I booked the Sunset Chalet for the weekend! The highlight was the house itself... huge space filled with interesting decor, comfortable furniture, great entertainment system, and a truly breathtaking view of the southern Oregon foothills.

The chalet is located about a 20-ish minute drive from Ashland OR, where my friends and I spent a good deal of time hiking, eating, etc.

All in all I'm extremely happy with the decision to rent the Sunset Chalet and would definitely return next time I'm in Ashland for any length of time.

A little slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5

This property is a tad isolated from Ashland, but for many this is a good thing. The kitchen is very functional and some would say "well broke in," but the view and overall environment from this house are special. You are on a balcony view of the Siskiyous, snow covered in April, and the ambiance could not be more relaxing. The master suite is huge, and the soaking tub is very nice. For skiers, the property is about 20 minutes from Mount Ashland. The owner cued us into some nearby attractions, including a lovely Buddhist Monastery across the valley. The hot tub on the deck was non-functional, restoring it would be a big plus.

Nice cabin with great views

  • 4 of 5

Nice cabin, amazing views, owner was quick to respond to questions, everyone loved it. Well-stocked kitchen and bathrooms (all appliances, utensils, tools, towels, etc.) Cabin was clean upon arrival. Close access to trails nearby. The only reason I gave it 4 stars - there are no doors on the master bedroom or bathroom, as well as no shower door. This made it a little awkward throughout our stay, but definitely not something that ruined our time there.

Owner's Response: There is not door to the Master bedroom so that renters can see the sun setting and rising from the bed.

Nice location and view

  • 4 of 5

Nice, comfortable house. Fully functional kitchen. Great views of the nearby mountains. Quiet country setting. Nice master suite with king bed and separate bathroom with tub and shower. Some may not like that the upstairs room did not have a door and no door to bathroom and shower stall area. The area is private from the downstairs.

There are some small details that need addressing that were relayed to owner; leaking toilet, no remote for a ceiling fan. This was not an issue during this trip, though when hot, would imagine the fan would be helpful in cooling the house. A hot tub was advertised, though was not functional, no water was in the tub. We would have used it, especially as this was a get together to mountain bike the area.

Owner's Response: The Hot Tub is NOT advertised and is NOT on the Amenities list. The Hot Tub was removed from the Amenities List 3 years ago.
