About Ben and Kara Bryan

I grew up in Ashland and my wife and I recently bought this beautiful house built in 1892. It is zoned and set up as a traveler's accommodation, so we are able to share our home and town with people who want to visit. We have a 3 year old son and a 1 1/2 year old daughter.

We love meeting new people and enjoy hosting. There is no shared space between the rental unit and our living area, but we will interact outside on the beautiful grounds.

Ben and Kara Bryan purchased this house in 2015

Why Ben and Kara Bryan chose Ashland, OR

We chose this property because it's located withing walking distance to the downtown area. This includes over 30 restaurants, bars, shops and the World Famous Shakespeare Festival. In addition, this property is one of a kind and very unique. We have always wanted to live in a house that looks nothing like other houses on the block, and this one is it!

What makes this house unique

The master bedroom at our house is beautifully finished, with hard wood floors and hard wood trim, heated tile floors, granite countertops and a beautiful view.

Lovely and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! The bedroom and bathroom are beautiful and the bed was so comfortable. A pleasant walk down hill to town and the walk uphill is nice for stretching your legs after a play. The hosts were kind and welcoming!

Perfect Suite for Two for the OSF experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quaint, charming suite in Ashland. It was everything as described in the description. Beautifully decorated, not over done. Large bathroom with double sinks and outlets on each side of the vanity. That was a plus when two are getting ready at the same time. Beautiful, large and powerful shower, with fluffy towels. Loved it. Shampoo amenities as well.

The bed was absolutely wonderful! The mattress at a rental is always my concern and it was perfect. We had a great nights sleep. The room had a fridge, coffee maker and a window AC unit with a fan above the bed. It helped keep us fresh during the day and at night we only needed to run the fan. (It was a very hot and humid weekend when we were there). The porch was adorable and we took some time to enjoy coffee in the morning and sit on the porch in the evening for just a bit. The porch gets lots of sun in the morning, so it's best to get up early or enjoy in the afternoon. I loved it!

There were amenities in the suite for coffee and tea, utensils and dishes for coffee and snacks. The bathroom lights have a tiny dimmer on them next to the on and off switch. I kept accidentally turning the dimmer down and I wondered why there wasn't enough lighting and it was ME the entire time turning the lights down. It was quite the joke everytime I did it.

The home was in a beautiful, great neighborhood and we had on site parking. There was no neighborhood noise or barking dogs. The home is located a few blocks from the main downtown road and we were greeted by a beautiful deer everyday, feeding in the neighborhood. She just went on about her day without even being bothered by us. She and her fawns came out at night as well.

The only recommendation would be that a TV or a DVD player with movies would be nice. We were gone all day visiting wineries, Chozu Spa and seeing Off the Rails at the Oregon Shakespeare Theater, but the town closes down pretty early. All of the shops were closed at 6:00 p.m. and they don't open until 10:00 or 11:00, so we couldn't stay out late shopping and returned to the room early at 8:45 after having dinner. So a movie might have been nice. Instead we were on our social media accounts with the wifi that worked perfect and never had any glitches.

I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone! I forgot to mention that the bed faces two beautiful windowed doors to see the gorgeous landscape in the morning. Can't beat that. :)

A truly lovely space and luxuriously comfortable in an excellent, peaceful neighborhood location -- easy walking distance to practically everything. The tasteful attention to details was so appreciated! We very much enjoyed our restful stay and will definitely be back with Ben and Kara again.

Nice Quiet Stay in Very Accessible Ashland Location

  • 4 of 5

Somewhat basic in terms of extras (does have a small microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker) but very adequate in terms of bedroom and bathroom space and features. Pretty neighborhood within walking distance of theater and downtown. Gracious hosts who were available and friendly and in no way intrusive. More than met our needs and expectations.

Check in time is at 3:00 PM, and check out is 11 AM. This is a requirement on the days that we have back to back reservations. If you need to leave or arrive outside of these times, please let us know and if we don't have another reservation we can be flexible.
The lights over the driveway turn on automatically. If you anticipate coming back late, it is best to leave the porch light on outside of the French doors.

There is an electric lock on the door and the code for your visit is set to 1895 then hit lock. There is also a key hidden as a back up.

The house has central A/C, but the controls are in the main part of the house. There is a window A/C unit you can use as much as you want. If you have the windows open, please close the vents from for the forced air. There is also a ceiling fan.

We are available via text or phone call most of the time, you can call Ben at 541-954-0974 or Kara at 209-217-4316.
You are renting the master bedroom suite at our home. It has a private entrance and is separated from the rest of the living area by a locked hallway.

The room also has a refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, electric kettle, and dishes.
The bathroom has a granite countertop, two sinks, heated tile floors and a large tiled shower with two shower heads.
There are french doors which open on to an outdoor seating are and fully fenced yard.
Our default is to give guests privacy while they are staying at our property. However, we are very outgoing and enjoy meeting new people, so feel free to say hi if you would like to. In addition, Ben was raised in Ashland and knows the town and area.
