Beautiful and well appointed home. This is a jewel in the village of Ashland. Will be back again and again.
We stayed two weeks in this beautiful location after we lost our home in the Almeda Fire. It had absolutely everything we needed to make it feel like home. You really cannot find a better location in Ashland. We enjoyed mornings on the porch, walks downtown, and home cooked meals (what a lovely kitchen!). Be warned though - the cork floors are quite slippery. Slippers came in handy!
It's a beautiful place in downtown Ashland, and myself and my partner enjoyed it. We stayed for a month and it's a great location near downtown Ashland. It's not in the middle of downtown, but the middle of literally 2 blocks away. The house is on an area that is a nice residential neighborhood, bordering the start of downtown. Because of this, it's next to a busy street so you will hear car noises in the morning if the windows are open, but the traffic goes down at night and no problem with the windows closed. It's not bad at all, but just a heads up for those sensitive to car noises. Neighbors upstairs are super friendly, you don't hear them as the house has good soundproofing. The back yard garden is really nice. As for the inside, well you see everything in the pictures. It's a very nice place. It just doesn't look good, it feels good. I highly recommend it!
The place was exactly as described--nicely set up inside, with a lovely front porch and back yard that made it ideal in nice weather. It is well-appointed with linens, toiletries, and a well-stocked kitchen, and it is right in the center of town. My only quibble is that I felt the blinds in the bedroom let in too much light--waking me at 5:30 am in the summer. Otherwise it is quite quiet given its central location, although you can hear footsteps in the Oberon house when they are above (but not tv or conversations). There were two small problems with the house, which the owner took care of immediately. Overall, this house was key to having a lovely relaxing stay in Ashland; I would definitely return.
We had a wonderful time stay at the Titania property in Ashland. It's very centrally located - one block from the main street and three blocks from the the grocery store co-op. We would definitely stay here again!
The third bed is a rolling cot. Otherwise the house was amazing, great walking to everything. Last minute booking with a few glitches related to that but the host was very accomodating.
Appreciated all the wonderful touches in this beautiful accommodation so close to downtown Ashland. It was convenient and had easy parking both on the street and dedicated in the back. The home is wonderfully curated and has all the things one needs for a good stay. Hope to return soon! Especially appreciated the kindness and local advice of owner Mr. Rood.
This is our 6th visit to Titania, and it always feels like home!! A warm, cozy house in Winter, it is the absolute best place to stay in Ashland!! We’ll be back this Summer!
The cottages have been totally updated and like new. Very comfortable and nicely decorated, extremely clean. Have stayed very close to this property prior and Titania is far more refined and enjoyable than anywhere else we have stayed in Ashland. Highly recommend.
Great in everyway
Our favorite rental in Ashland....and we've tried them all. One of the few places I've stayed where I feel as comfortable as I do at home. My only advice is to purchase better kitchen knives. Other than that, it was perfect!
We are two couples and this is our preferred rental for our yearly trips to Ashland. This classic old Ashland home has been admirably remodeled with attention to privacy, soundproofing and landscaping. It is carefully maintained, clean, roomy and tastefully decorated. Despite downtown convenience there are several wonderful private places to sit and enjoy the outdoors. The air conditioning is effective; the bathrooms are simple and elegant; the kitchen is well equipped; and the shared space is comfortable. Our host is helpful and easily reached. This was our fourth stay and Titania/Oberon and we hope for many more.
Well appointed, fresh flowers and well equipped. Beautiful yard and excellent location. Because we rent both properties, having that option on the VRBO web site would make it much easier. I also feel if both properties are rented, one 100.00 fee should apply.
Lovely cottage..well located..beautiful grounds..well equipped kitchen..quiet and peaceful. I can definitely recommend this property to anyone traveling to Ashland!
We have stayed at this property several times and it has been delightful every time. The decor is lovely and the place is spotless. She has supplied everything you need for a comfortable stay. The best equipped kitchen we have ever had in a VRBO. The location is perfect- right in the heart of town, an easy 3 block walk to OSF. Highly recommended.
We had a great five nights at Titania. The owners were very accommodating and the home was clean and well-equipped. It’s a warm and comfortable place, in a safe and fairly quiet neighborhood, and with a beautiful, peaceful backyard. And it’s only a three-block walk from the Ashland coop. So we could cook most of our meals with great food, and still buy treats at the spur of the moment without having to use the car. In fact, other than for daytime sightseeing in the area, we didn’t get in the car at all! What a luxury. We’d happily come back.
We stayed at Titania for a week. The unit is beautiful with all natural furnishings. The location is one block from the downtown area. The kitchen is well stocked and very functional.
Our stay was very comfortable thanks to the properly stocked kitchen and all of the home away from home touches added to the apartment!
Spacious, great location for restaurants and the OSF, welcoming.
We are a group of four adults and rent both Titania and Oberon for our visits. The apartments adjoin each other and are always comfortable, well stocked for cooking and relaxing, and within walking distance of plays, restaurants and shops. The house is clean, beautifully remodeled and tastefully decorated. Despite the central location and an upstairs apartment, our area, which includes a lovely veranda and outdoor space, is quiet and private.
Lovely home, very well maintained and decorated with an excellent kitchen. this will be our go to spot for all future trips to OSF. If you can get this house, do it. Close to the OSF theaters and all our favorite restaurants. Handy excellent coffee practically next door. Good laundry area in basement. what’s not to like.
We love this house in Ashland so much; we've stayed here at least 5 times and will continue to book it! Immaculate, beautifully furnished, in the prime location, any guest is guaranteed to love it!! A serene backyard with fountain and garden makes it even more captivating. The home is always clean, with good towels, and amenities. Truly, this is Ashland's Best!
From the minute you walk in the door, you feel how well maintained and aesthetically pleasing this craftsman cottage is. A great place to stay.
Titania is part of a two unit house. Both can be rented together (there is a connecting door) to fit a family or friend group of 5. Titania is the larger of the two and can fit 2-3 people. It is perfectly clean, tastefully decorated, and completely comfortable. The owners are communicative and responsive. The property is located in downtown Ashland close to the theater, shops, and restaurants. The co-op is nearby, there is a city bike rental stand around the corner, and Noble Coffee (best ever cool coffee shop) is just 3 blocks from the house.
Previously wrote a review. The location is wonderful, the apartments clean and well appointed,,
We loved staying at Titania and found the home well-appointed and comfortable. We cooked while there and found the kitchen very well stocked with high quality items. The location is central to downtown Ashland, the Shakespeare Festival, restaurants, and coffee shops. We will definitely stay here again in future trips if we can get on their calendar, which is quite booked. After staying here I understand why the bookings are high and there are so many repeat customers.
We just spent a glorious long Easter Weekend in Antea Rood's lovely home, Titania. As always, she has the home perfectly appointed, clean to the highest standards, and so attractively and comfortably furnished...it is pure joy to stay there. Perfectly located right in the center of Ashland, every activity is merely steps away, but at home , it feels like a complete oasis. With her full kitchen, we served Easter Dinner for 8, and then had a delightful Easter Egg hunt in her beautiful yard. We are already signed up for another stay-I cannot recommend this charming spot highly enough!! THANK YOU for another Perfect Holiday!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Titania! The location is perfect! Park your car and walk everywhere! The home is very welcoming, very light and airy. It’s beautifully decorated and perfectly appointed! The kitchen is fabulous with everything you would need to cook some yummy meals, which we did almost every night! Comfy bed, large walk in closet and spacious bathroom. There is also a beautiful Zen garden in the back of the property. Enjoyed it so much we booked this property again before we left for our next Ashland getaway!
This is a very comfortable place with easy walking distance to all of downtown. I stayed 2 weeks and really enjoyed myself
Titania was the perfect place to be in Ashland while awaiting the arrival of my grandchild. The property is beautiful in design and is in a great location in town near everything you could want. The owners think of everything that you could need for a long stay, from kitchen items to great reading material. I loved it so much I could stay there again and again. The host and her property managers are very responsive to your needs. It was wonderful and I hope to stay again.
This apartment has everything you need. It is spacious and very clean. The furnishings are comfortable and very high quality. The location is ideal....you can walk to everything and despite being near very busy streets, it is amazingly quiet. Andrea and her team are very responsive. We would definitely come again
Our family once again loved our stay in both Titania and Oberon!! Upon arrival, everything in this precious home is perfection-clean, orderly, harmonious, and so beautiful amongst the Fall leaves. Antea has thought of every detail and nothing is missed. It is sheer delight to stay in this charming home right in the middle of Ashland-easy walking distance to all restaurants, theaters, shopping and park--PERFECTION!! And, we are already booked for our next stay!!
Last year we stayed in the Oberon, this year Titania and upstairs. I cannot say enough positive things about this place. It’s beautiful, spotless, the location is perfect, the bed is so plush, the garden is relaxing, and Antea is responsive, flexible, and helpful. Honestly, I cannot imagine a more positive experience.
Clean, comfortable and close to everything
Everything was wonderful and easy, loved the front porch, and very well equipped.
Fabulous location. Lovely home with personal touches, well maintained and thought out. Hoping to stay there again next year during the theater season.
My family of three stayed at the Titania for 3 nights and it was perfect! Our 23 year old son pronounced the roll away bed comfortable and he has had a lot of experience with pull-out sofas and rollaways! The place was spotless. It is cozy, warm and inviting. The bed and bedding are lovely- my partner, who has a bad back, was happy! The kitchen is completely stocked with everything a serious cook needs and it has a gas stove. Great shower, AC and very quiet even though it is on the corner of a busy street- the location is unparalleled- literally an easy walk to everything downtown. It has a beautiful garden and ample off street parking. We have been going to Ashland for 35 years and my son attended SOU so we have stayed in many, many places. Titania is, hands down, the best. We won't stay anywhere else. Thank you for thinking of everything! Sandy
My husband and I had a wonderful and very comfortable stay for three nights the end of April. The furnishings are first class and all the things we needed were supplied. Our long weekend to Ashland was absolutely perfect with the shops and restaurants just a block away, the theaters three blocks and the new grocery store just down the street. A must do for couples who want to relax is Chozu Gardens and Teahouse. They have a spa package that comes with some nibblies served right to your private jacuzzi...with access to the hot pools and saunas....just down the street from Titania. This is an AMAZING property and I cannot give them due credit with just 5 stars. Thank you so much for making our weekend perfect. Eric & Vicente
This was the nicest vacation rental I have ever stayed in. The property has everything you could ever need. The furnishings are beautiful and the kitchen is great for cooking. I can't wait to return.
My stay at Titania was perfect in every way. A lovingly cared for craftsman, close to town, yet very private. I was delighted upon entering. The aesthetic sense of this home is unparalleled to anywhere else I've stayed in Ashland. Comfortable furnishings, a dreamy bed, terrific kitchen, with accents such as live plants and crystals made my time here effortless and enjoyable. I highly recommend this property to anyone seeking luxury and comfort in downtown Ashland.
This is the cleanest, most well maintained VRBO in which we've stayed. I am finicky when it comes to cleanliness. It is clearly loved and cared for by the owners. The furniture is lovely and comfortable. The location is prime with a less than 10 minute walk to Lithia Park and the OSF theaters and a short 2.5 block walk to the Food Co-op, as well as several fabulous restaurants. I like the off street parking, the back garden and the outdoor couch on the large covered front porch to lounge on and watch the world go by. It is on a busy street, but it's still quiet inside. The full kitchen is filled with all the kitchen tools, pots/pans, plates, etc one could need. You could use the equipment to cook an extensive meal on the 6 burner stove. The laundry area with a separate access entrance is modern and clean. I appreciate that the owners are eco friendly and are careful with the cleaning products they use as we have allergies and chemical sensitivities. We had no issues here at all. Interactions with the owner were easy and efficient. We will definitely return to Titania for future Ashland trips! I felt bad that when we left we had the dishwasher all set with soap and ready to go, but forgot to push the start button before racing out the door to catch our airplane flight.
This is our 25th year coming to Ashland, and we have stayed at numerous places. This was by far the best. There were five of us, and we had the entire first floor. The kitchen was well equipped, and we cooked most of our meals and ate in the quiet, beautiful back yard.
We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights in mid-June while going to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The apartment was everything we could hope for and more. We are a family of three and the apartment was the right size for us. The bed and bedding was soft and comfortable. While there is a busy road next to the house, its hot in Ashland and we used the AC system. We had restful nights.The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to eat in most nights. We loved reading books on the front porch. The apartment and yard were immaculately clean and so beautiful! We were able to walk to all of the shows and window shop in town. We walked to the food coop for our food. We read books and waited for our laundry in the beautiful backyard.The owners were staying upstairs. We enjoyed talking with them. They clearly care that everyone has a great stay. We wish we could stay at this apartment on every one of our vacations!
The home is well maintained and the yard and garden beautiful. The home is well appointed with many lovely furnishings and decorating items, unusual in a rental and appreciated. Appreciated the local coffee and tea availability. We do plan to return for both our yearly visits to Ashland. In June ,4 women come and we like to have our own bed. The roll away in the one apartment's living room makes it crowded and there is no room for luggage .Suggest, one of the larger bedrooms be furnished with 2 twins that can be pulled apart for singles, or pushed together for a couple, which is very common in GB and Europe. thank you. Great location for attending the theater and for local restaurants and shopping.
I was aware that there was a chance that the other side of the house could be rented. What I was not aware of and was NOWHERE stated that there is a unit ABOVE the two units! If you rent please be advised that there are THREE possible renters at a time. I felt for the price I could have found a better unit with more seclusion! Disappointed...........
This place is very nice, clean, comfortable and extremely convenient. You can walk to the theaters, shops, restaurants in just a few blocks. It is walking distance to the Farmer's Coop and Ace Hardware. Bed is comfortable, kitchen appliances top-notch, bathroom beautiful. The downside: Reading in bed is not at all comfortable because the lamps do not illuminate your book. Reading lights would be a big improvement. They need more supplies (we stayed a week and ran out of a few things like dish soap, foil, plastic wrap) and it would be nice if they provided a pitcher, sugar for coffee, parchment paper to protect pans from spills in the oven. The remote for the DVD didn't work, presumably out of batteries and there were no spares. Not a working pen in the house, nor small conveniences like scotch tape. They had a nice Nespresso coffee machine, but no Nespresso coffee pods, and these cannot be bought in stores so we couldn't purchase any. There were no TV listings of the channels available, nor instructions for the Cable. We would definitely stay here again, and with a few thoughtful changes, this house would rate 5-stars.
My husband, daughter and I stayed at Second Spring for three nights. We stayed in Titania. It is a very tidy, comfortable and well stocked unit which is very close to everything that makes Ashland so charming. There was plenty of room for the three of us and everyone was comfortable in their beds. We slept well, but there was some street noise early in the morning because you are right on the main road. However, the fact that we could be to NW Juice Bar where we took our breakfast every morning in a two minute walk made it a total non issue.
This was simply perfect for the 2 nights we stayed over Thanksgiving. Comfortable, very clean, and up-to-date furnishings and décor. The kitchen is equipped with absolutely anything you might need to prepare a meal and dine elegantly. The bedroom was a lovely sanctuary. The bed was dreamy and provided a great nights sleep. My one that needs improvement is the lighting on the property sign with the address out front.....it's not very bright and appeared to need cleaning and debris cleared away to show the name and address. Also, and this is significant in my opinion......the front porch light was not on when we arrived. We arrived after dark but in late November sunset is about 4:45. So imagine climbing the stairs of a dark porch to a dark house in a strange place. Perhaps a light or 2 left on inside would be helpful too. I'm all for saving energy but this was a safety issue.
My husband and I spent three weeks in Titania, and couldn't have been more pleased. The owners were exceptionally responsive, both before and during our stay, as were the staff, both the on-site manager and the cleaning service, eager to accommodate our every need. The house itself is exquisitely decorated and very comfortable, and the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped (we cooked home almost every meal). The small touches go a long way toward making this place feel like home, including the luxurious linens. Just blocks from everything you want and need: shops on Main Street, the movie theatre, Bloomsbury Bookstore, Shakespeare Festival, the coop grocery store, restaurants in the Railroad District. We can't wait to return!
Until this trip, I have never found the place that I wanted to stay when I am visiting Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This property is very clean, aesthetically pleasing & in very close proximity to the plays & restaurants. I am very particular & was very happy staying here. Just hope that it is available the next time I want to stay!
This was our 2nd stay at the charming Second Springs home, and we are sure there will be many more, as our parents live in Ashland. The cleanliness, charming decorating, relaxing and inspiring garden all make for the most delightful time. Also, the convenience of location, with the downtown being right there, truly makes this property incomparable. We have stayed in numerous other Ashland properties, bit now have discovered the gem of Second Springs. THANK YOU!!!
The Titania was a wonderful apartment where we were able to entertain other family members, fix meals, sit on the porch and watch Ashand by. We stayed for nine days and truly felt like we had a home away from home. It was in a perfect location with easy walking to restaurants, Lithia Park, and all the entertainment. We would definitely attempt to book this property again next time we are in Ashland.
What a beautiful home. Every room was tastefully furnished and comfortable. The kitchen had all the modern appliances we needed,and the bathroom was spacious and well designed. We couldn't have asked for a better location. It is within walking distance of the Shakespeare Festival and all the great restaurants and shops that Ashland has to offer. The owners were lovely and available for questions and anything we needed. This truly was a home away from home and we can't wait to stay here on our next trip to Ashland.
Beautiful spot. We were not bothered once, and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom. Stocked beautifully inside. Tasteful decor. So close to downtown! Highly recommend.
What a great house!! I stayed here with my family and it worked out perfectly. The house is very comfortable and was a pleasure to stay in. It had all the comforts of home. Dudley was over the top helpful, which was very much appreciated. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to spend some time in Ashland.
My husband and I stayed here for our 2 day mini-vacation and it was perfect. The home has been tastefully decorated and was immaculate. The owners were very attentive. On the first night we accidentally locked ourselves out and had called a locksmith. The owner was apologetic and came to let us in and paid the locksmith!! This was very sweet. Fresh flowers in the living room! The linens were beautiful. It is spacious and comfortable. And we LOVED the location. Close to theaters, restaurants, the co-op and all it's great food, the yoga studio. We did not use our car the entire stay. We will stay here again the next time we come to Ashland.
The owners of Second Spring Properties so graciously offered their absolutely amazing rentals to some of our VIPs for the 2014 Ashland Independent Film Festival. A group of us from the team went to visit the house and could not believe how well appointed and comfortable both units are and excited to have such a wonderful lodging option in one of the best locations in our town. We all highly recommend booking this spectacular property if you are fortunately enough to find availability during your visit to Ashland.
This beautiful, quiet oasis was the perfect home for our romantic getaway. The elegant decor and the warm, light filled space allowed us to fully relax and enjoy. The owners are extraordinary people, and you can feel the love they put into every inch of the place. It was a truly magical experience. We can't wait to come back!
My first impression of this lovely, comfortable place was how quiet it is, with a feeling of privacy even though it's in the center of town. (I especially loved walking through the magical Lithia Park.) Will definitely return in the summer with a friend and use it as a base camp for more theater and exploring.
THIS NEW ACCOMMODATION WAS VERY COMFORTABLE AND FUNCTIONAL. THE DECOR WAS EXQUISITE, AND THE FURNISHINGS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE. THE LOCATION, TWO BLOCK FROM EVERYTHING, COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. I WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT!
