Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This 550 sq. ft., new, fully furnished, self-contained, one bedroom guest house with 2 decks, is above our detached garage behind our house. There are no shared walls and it is very private. We are located 3 1/2 miles south of downtown just outside the Ashland city limits in a quiet neighborhood of upscale homes on 5 acre lots.

You will especially enjoy stepping onto your completely private, 300 sf deck which overlooks a seasonal creek and the forest with birds, deer and squirrels in abundance. This is the perfect place to unwind, sip your morning coffee or a glass of wine, sunbathe, BBQ or just let the world go by. Comfortable patio furniture, sun umbrella and gas grill are provided for your enjoyment. A second deck looks north to amazing views of Grizzly Peak. You will think you are in a magical treehouse.

Your private, light-filled retreat features 3 skylights, lots of large windows, a ceiling fan, window A/C and vaulted ceiling in living, kitchen and dining area. There are tile floors, designed and installed by owners Marty and Michael, in the kitchen and bathroom, wood flooring in the living and bedroom. The bedroom is cozy with a handcrafted queensize bed constructed by Michael, with plush pillowtop mattress and luxurious 400+ count linens, plus comfy and warm quilts and blankets. In the dining area, you'll find a handmade maple and cherry dining table surrounded by four comfortable Windsor chairs.

The bath has a full sized tub with shower and a handmade walnut vanity with a granite countertop and upscale fixtures. Plush towels, shampoo and bath soap are provided for your convenience.

The kitchen is fully stocked with basics, such as sugar, cream, salt, pepper, tea and coffee. There is a full size gas range if you want to stay in and cook your meals.

You won't have to leave the world behind unless you want to. We feature wireless internet, Netflix streaming movies and cable TV, as well as a DVD player and stereo.

We have a herd of deer and a flock of wild turkeys who frequently roam the property, otherwise you will be left alone to make yourself completely at home. We restored the house next door and added your rental in 2011. We’ve lived here for 16 years and will be happy to give you pointers about our local wineries, hot springs and where to buy local healthy produce. We will also direct you to hiking and biking trails close by and offer any advice that can make your stay more enjoyable.

No smoking or pets please

About The Owner

My husband and I moved here 15 years ago and renovated our home on several acres. We added the detached garage with your apartment upstairs. We work during the day but will be available to answer your questions on check in.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Ashland

We fell in love with the area, the people and the opportunities for endless outdoor activity. We love being so close to the Shakespeare Festival and the great restaurants downtown, but yet in a quiet, peaceful, country setting.

What makes this apartment unique

You will be able to walk out your door and enjoy an invigorating hike, bring your bike and head up the mountain for endless biking trails. Enjoy sunbathing, reading or drinking a glass of wine on your private deck which overlooks a forest and seasonal creek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a nice time in your beautiful place! We will be back to stay with you.

This is a 5 star VRBO for sure!

High above it all!

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse Retreat is so tranquil. Spent several days on mother-daughter bonding trip. It suited both of us perfectly, especially my daughter who needed a place to detox from registering for fall classes at SOU. It's really roomy for two, and had everything we needed. Highlight was reading after dinner on the deck overlooking the valley. The owner was very helpful settling us in and advising on local hiking trails. Returning in the fall to drop my daughter off will be bittersweet, but staying here will take some of the sting out.

Wonderful apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

I spent 10 days here and loved it. The apartment is a nice size, with a full kitchen, two decks, well designed, and clean. The view of the surrounding hills is amazing. There is lots of privacy. It is just on the outskirts of town so if you are looking for a place to walk to businesses, it's too far for that. But it still only 5 minutes to a great little coffee shop and the university. 10 minutes to downtown. The proprietor was attentive and checked in regularly to ask if I needed anything, but gave me all the privacy I wanted. If you're looking for a great apartment with amazing views I highly recommend this.
