Arbor Studio at Chakra Garden of Ashland offers a relaxing private retreat space perfect for one person, a ‘tiny house’ with comfy bed, interior cleanliness, bamboo floors, filtered drinking water, & well-equipped kitchenette. Walk only 0.5 mile to Downtown Plaza, OSF & Lithia Park. Off street parking. A small (under 200sf), modern, cozy cottage nestled amidst our beautiful & riotous wildflower, medicinal herb & perennial gardens – available for your enjoyment, play & meaningful reflection.

The space

Arbor Studio at Chakra Garden of Ashland is a cozy retreat from the world, a delightful escape into a special private place. Arbor Studio is a compact, tidy single building just right as a retreat space for one person. This 'tiny house' is nestled under a grandmother grapevine and looks out into our beautiful & colorfully arrayed cottage-style healing garden, a sanctuary filled with flowers & herbs.
Expect friendly atmosphere, intelligent use of space, interior cleanliness, bamboo floors, interesting lighting, filtered drinking water, a moderately equipped kitchenette (convection/toaster oven, micro, electric kettle & frying pan, 4 each dishes, cups, etc. Hot plate available upon request).
You can enjoy your snacks perched on a stool at the kitchenette counter while gazing past the ancient grapevine arbor out into our Healing Garden. There's also a old-fashioned barrel reading chair with a garden view.
Arbor Studio sports a new, queen-sized bed (mattress and box springs) by Serta. The space feels isolated from the outside world, yet we're at the beginning of downtown Ashland, in the heart of our village. We are not offering the Arbor to couples because the fiberglass shower opens into the main room and the toilet has a curtain rather than a door.
The well insulated space is heated with a portable radiator-type device, ceiling fan for air circulation, and a newer window air conditioner.
Entry to Arbor Studio is via the Garden Gate into the back yard. The ground in the back garden can be uneven and the bark-covered walkway dark, especially at night. We have solar lights but we encourage you to carry a flashlight.
Parking is off-street in our 3-vehicle driveway or safely at curbside.
Please be aware that we love dogs, but cannot accept your canine companion as a guest.

Arbor Studio at Chakra Garden is located 0.5 mile north of Ashland’s Downtown Plaza, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Bricks, and Lithia Park. Walk directly south down N. Main Street and arrive at the Plaza in 10-12 minutes; or, stroll amongst the houses, through the Historic Skidmore Academy District and arrive at the Plaza in 12-15 minutes. Your enjoyment of Ashland's main attractions won't require a vehicle.

If you're coming to Ashland for a class, we're 3-blocks up the street from the Kagyu Sukha Choling Center for the Practice of Tibetan Buddhism, 4-blocks from Ashland Institute of Massage Therapy (AIM), and 5-blocks from the United Bicycle Institute. The Dance Space is 0.5 miles south along Hersey, and we're 1.5 miles north of the University (SOU).
Chakra Garden of Ashland is almost across the street from a south-bound Ashland/Medford bus stop and a block from Ashland’s Youth Hostel. Ashland’s Natural Food Coop is a beautiful 6-block walk. There are restaurants located only 1 block north, and a Minute Market 1 block south. You’ll find everything else you need for entertainment and shopping beginning less than half mile south of Chakra Garden, around Ashland's Downtown Plaza.

Guest access

Enter through the garden gate to find Arbor Studio. Our gardens are spacious and in development as a healing sanctuary based on the Chakra System. We invite you to enjoy the environment and amenities. Practice yoga (etc) on the lawn area behind the main house; enjoy the deck with gas bar-b-que; rest in the shady hammock (not in winter), eat breakfast at the garden table with umbrella, make a small fire in the pit in the evening (please use screen and common sense), play a game of ping pong in the pavilion, bar-b-que on our side deck. And also know that downtown Ashland, with beautiful Lithia Park and world-class dining and shopping, is only 4-blocks south.

Interaction with guests

You might meet us in the backyard but our desire is for you to find as much privacy as you crave. You might choose to attend one of our classes or schedule a therpeutic appointment. We are yogis and body-mind healers. Dr. Zeb is a somatic counselor and Rolfer; Candace an embodiment guide and Tantra educator. We provide private sessions, group classes, and healing retreats. We invite you to schedule therapeutic bodywork or a healing appointment with Dr. Zeb or an energy tune-up/embodiment meditation with Candace to enhance your visit. Find more information at our Chakra Garden of Ashland website.

Other things to note

The space is very cozy and there is little interior privacy inside. There is no central heat and air; instead, we have an excellent space heater, a new window air conditioner, and a ceiling fan.

Perfect location for me; lovely size for me.

Aiva User Profile

This little studio was perfect for a solo traveler. It reminded me of the days I spent living on a houseboat -- quiet, charming, efficient use of space, and very peaceful. It felt too small for two people, unless you are very comfortable sharing tight quarters & a relatively open bathroom (the shower is next to the kitchen, and the toilet is only separated by a light curtain), but it was totally fine for one person. The surrounding garden was lovely, even if it meant finding a spider or two in the studio. It was an easy walk in to Ashland, but far enough to feel removed from the bustle of the town. Perfect little solo retreat spot.

Response from Candace:
I apologize for the spider appearance, Aiva. They have been particularly prolific this summer, and both Zeb and our housekeeper have been on special watch. I am sorry these were missed. I hope that when you stay with us again, you will have the courtesy let us know during your stay if something is the least bit uncomfortable so that we can take care of it immediately. Thanks...

The Arbor Studio was perfect for me, an introvert traveling alone! It would've been perfect if my partner was along as well, because the space can cozily accommodate two. Zeb and Candace were both very responsive and friendly in all communications, and as an introverted traveler, it was nice not to "have" to talk with someone face-to-face at check-in or check-out. I am confident that if I did have any concerns or questions that required an in-person meeting, Zeb, the on-site host, would've been able to pop right over to manage it. The Arbor Studio is well-equipped with anything I would've needed, including plenty of towels and lots of small appliances. The AC and ceiling fan were absolutely Lovely considering the 100+ degree temperatures outside. The space is both private, restful and beautiful and I have already recommended the Arbor Studio in the Chakra Gardens to my sister for the next time she travels down to Ashland. I would definitely choose to stay here again on a future trip.

The cottage was situated in a beautiful and lush garden. Directions were clear and easy, my stay was cozy and enjoyable. Despite the fact that it was 102 degrees and smokey outside, it was a cool 70 degrees in the cottage when I arrived. As a young woman traveling alone, I felt safe.

Charming little place in a hidden garden Oasis. Everything you need in a private tiny house. It was so nice to walk out the front door and smell the grapes on the vine. Air conditioning appreciated in this hot weather. My only draw back was that the fridge is pretty non-stop noise. If you like white noise, it's fine. If (like me) you can't stand it, consider bringing ear plugs.

Response from Candace:
Thanks for letting us know about the fridge noise, Christine. If it is bothersome, there's something wrong. We'll have a service person come take a look at it now that we are aware there's a problem.

Beautiful location and extremely walkable to and from the theater. The garden was an absolute gift and the lodging was perfect for one person. Would absolutely recommend.

Arbor House was a great refuge for me away from the heat of the day and the busyness of Ashland in the summer. It was cozy and had everything I needed for snacking and relaxing, and the Wi-Fi was good. It would be snug for two people, but doable. Was just perfect for one. In the heat of the summer, the AC unit is needed day and night so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. I did and rested fitfully. I enjoyed the walk into town and being car-free for the plays I saw. I would have liked to have made time for evenings in their huge garden. Next time!

I live in So. Oregon. I have traveled throughout the Pacific Ocean on 35-ft sailboat. I lived in Europe for 6 years. I've practiced Yoga for 40 years. I guide embodied non-duality meditations (weekly classes & private sessions). I am a Tantra educator embracing Wise Woman Ways. I like to laugh. I love people's stories and am a good listener. I host guests & students at my healing sanctuary, Chakra Garden of Ashland (Oregon). We offer 3 private cottages that open into our evolving gardens. My partner in all aspects of the Ashland adventure is Dr. Zeb Lancaster, somatic counselor & sex therapist. We have written 3-books together, including BodyMind Boundaries for Beginners, plus we both guide individuals, couples, and groups towards somatic healing of body/heart/mind. Zeb spent much of his childhood living abroad. Your fulltime onsite Chakra Garden host, Zeb is fluent in Portuguese and French, plus can manage Spanish and Italian. I also host guests at my Homestead Woodland Cottage, southwest of Medford. Located at the beginnings of the Applegate Valley Watershed, in the Griffin Creek area between Ashland & Jacksonville, my not-in-Ashland time is spent at the Homestead with my beloved husband of 31+ years, Richard "RG" Guches. This 50 acres of woods bordering on BLM wildness was settled in the 1880s by RG's great grandparents.
