This is a house that is perfect for a couple or individual who wants the comfort of a perfectly appointed cottage in a quiet Victorian-era Southern town. Near Richmond, Williamsburg and Charlottesville, but very uniquely Ashland.
This house has held many writers seeking a week of solitude. it is full of books, with lots of places and porches to sink into a comfy chair to read, think, listen to music or take a nap. It is also perfect for parents visiting their children in college (Randolph Macon is in the town) or coming for the Christmas or other holidays.

Ragan and Phyllis are only a few minutes away in Ashland. We love the house and town and love meeting the people we host. If you need a small tour, or have any questions one or both of us are here to help.
Outras coisas a ter em conta
Ashland is a railroad town. The soft moan of the passenger and freight trains is musical background noise that is part of its charm. It is also a walking town, full of wide streets, big trees and minimal traffic. On Thursdays, the art galleries are open in the evening, on Fridays there are free wine tastings at The Caboose wine shop, on Saturdays, there is a morning farmer's market behind the town hall. At different times of the year, there are various events - Thanksgiving parade, Fourth of July band concert, Train Day, to mention a few.
There is no smoking in the house or on the property. We expect that you will be thoughtful of the neighbors with regard to noise. A well-behaved dog or cat is allowed but a cleaning deposit will be required.
I am a writer . After many years living in Washington D. C. I moved to Ashland in 1988 and felt surprisingly at home here from the first day. .Married to Ragan Phillips for ten years, we have eight grandchildren between us. A native Californian who has lived on the East coast most of my life, I go back and forth between the two coasts often. Airb&b is designed for an extrovert who needs solitude for mywork and interesting people to take my mind away from it.
I don't have a life motto, but I deeply believe that we are all connected.
