Easy access to dirt alley system for safely walking your dog from the house.

This is within walking distance of the Festival. Even though it is just off of the main road out of the city it is very quiet day or night.

Diane, David and pup McKenzie are friendly, hospitable and easy to be with. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. A real pleasure to park our car and walk 10 minutes to the theaters and downtown Ashland. Also Diane pointed us toward a great hike -- beautiful and wonderful for the spirit. Thanks D2 & McK!

Response from Diane & David:
We look forward to seeing you in the future and sharing some quality time together! Maybe a "good for the spirit" hike! Glad to hear all worked out for you, now get to work! Diane

Diane and David are top notch hosts! On their website, they have recommendations and tips of what to see, where to eat, what stores to visit - the recommendations are all spot on. As a matter of fact, Diane's recommendations became my personal guidebook to discovering Ashland. The Oregon Cabaret Theatre with drinks and appetizer's at Meat Centric (Smithfield's) before the show and a night cap at the Black Sheep after the show makes for a very delightful and memorable evening (thank you for that tip Diane!). All of this is a five to ten minute easy walk from the apartment. And of course, to balance the culinary experience, we hiked and hiked the many trails above Ashland. Make sure you ask your hosts for trail tips. All in all, the apartment, the hosts, the location and the town were truly amazing! Book this place today!

you two are the most fabulous guests! And I imagine that your Hosting of your lovely 'cabin' in Co. is much of the same, an unsurpassable experience and of the highest quality! Come again, soon!

Everything about this experience was exeptional! Diane and David are the most congenial folks and did everything possible to make sure that I enjoyed my stay. This cute little apt has EVERYTHING you need. I cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner and wasn't missing a single item (If I had, Diane and David are the type of people that would provide it). The location is extraordinary - literally steps from downtown!

We had a wonderful stay at Diane & David's place. The listing was very accurate - it's a cozy, ground-level apartment. Diane & David were very welcoming and helpful, even making additional space in the off-street parking because we had two cars to park (us, plus one of our parents). The only thing I would flag for people looking to stay here is that it can be confusing finding the house when you first get there, because the address and front of the house is on Lithia Way, but you need to turn down a side street to access the parking. David came out and helped us when we arrived, and all was fine. I would definitely recommend their place to any couple or group of 3 looking for a nice place to stay within a 5 minute walk of downtown Ashland.

Response from Diane & David:
Melanie, it was great to meet you and Jodie, and yes, sorry, we didn't get to meet her mom. Thanks for being such nice guests and all around great people! Please Note: We are NOT on Lithia Way, our address is N. Main St. which intersects with Bush Street. Come again anytime!

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!
