My home is in the lovely town of Ashland, Oregon, nestled in a canyon above the University and about 1.5 miles from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival theatres. This home is a small cottage on two levels with beautiful views of the canyon and it's wildlife, and the surrounding 3 acres of Open Space. While here you can relax in the privacy of the yard, hike the trails near by, attend one of the many plays in downtown Ashland or partake of the numerous outdoor recreational opportunities of the Rogue Valley.
