I am definitely going for a 5 Star Vacation for you. Please see the pictures for more info. A picture says a thousand words!

Accuracy:
This apartment sleeps 4.
It is a 480 sq' upstairs apartment over the garage, which is separate from the house
Handicap lift works (see photos) but room is not fitted for wheelchairs
Queen sofa sleeper in living room - (It's a lovely sofa sleeper that Grandma bought to sleep on since Grandpa snores, but mattresses are so subjective it's hard for me to say - check out the reviews, no complaints there about the sofa sleeper!)
4-poster queen bed in master
Bathroom is off master bedroom (guests staying in living room on queen sofa must pass through master bedroom to access bathroom)
TV in master and living room
Full, double door, closet in bathroom with hanging shelving unit and hangers
Small dresser in master bedroom
Luggage rack, side table and bedside tables in master bedroom
OTHER AMENITIES:
Linens, bath towels and pool towels (pool open June through Aug), shampoo, cream rinse, body wash, alarm clock, blow dryer, emergency kit with spare toiletries, dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, toilet paper, dish rack, full kitchen with dishes/glasses, wine glasses, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, pots, pans, kitchen utensils, dish towels, kitchen table, kitchen chairs and two extra kitchen chairs in pantry.
Small porch with two bistro chairs and a table.
WIFI, Concierge book with restaurant suggestions and 911 instructions, A/C and heat.

NOTE: We have two large dogs who live on the property but we do not allow pets in the rentals due to guest allergies. They have their own pen and don't wander the yard. It nearly kills me when people ask to bring their pets, even after reading this. I know we like to travel with our dogs but this entire place is carpeted and I have to watch out for our hundreds of guests.

Value: Part of the room rate and the cleaning fee come back to me. Airbnb takes a large percentage from me, and charges you a larger percentage. When considering “Value”, please base this off of actual room rate and cleaning fee, vs considering your entire cost, thanks!

Communication of Host: Upon booking, you will receive a Welcome Email from me letting you know our address, where to park and how to enter the room which has 24 hour access. Communication beyond that is completely up to you! I do encourage guests to let me know if there is a need to meet upon arrival, via text message.

Arrival Ease: There is no “check-in” process involving me as your Host. Your room will be clean and ready whenever your party arrives, and you can arrive any time day or night. Airbnb only gives me that 3-5 window from which to choose, but please check in any time after 3 unless we've discussed early check-in options.

Location: We are in the Historic Downtown District of Ashland on the corner of Siskiyou Blvd and Union Street. The address is 514 Siskiyou Blvd. Please mapquest any specific distances from the starting location of 514 Siskiyou Blvd. The walk to OSF is roughly 5 minutes and is a very slight downhill, the walk home is very slight uphill. There are well lit sidewalks for walking home after shows. In the pictures, you can see a photo standing at Siskiyou and Union toward town/Ashland Springs Hotel to give you an idea of our location. If you have specific questions about distance from our home, please feel free to ask, I’m happy to help.

Overall Experience: It is our intention to provide you with a wonderful home away from home, however, we realize this category is subjective. We hope you will communicate with us right away if something is amiss to give us the chance to give you a 5 star vacation. We host over 200 parties all year in this room and I'm so proud of our ratings!

NOTE: If you are a larger group, we also have another room in the MAIN HOUSE which is across the yard and is listed on Airbnb as ASHLAND CARTER HOUSE, GARDEN ROOM. Should you decide to take it as well, I'll ask you to reserve it through Airbnb as well.

FAQ:

Pillows are provided but if you REALLY love your own pillow, feel free to bring it.
No smoking on the premises.
Yes, there is AC in the master bedroom behind the headboard/curtain.
Yes, there is heat that you control with your own thermostat.

Guest access

This is a 2nd floor apartment over the garage and is not attached to the main house where we live.
Arrival Ease: In my Welcome Email, I give specifics such as address, where to park and how to enter the room. There is no “check-in” process involving me as your Host. Your room will be clean and ready whenever your party arrives after 3pm, and you can arrive any time day or night.
Guests are welcome to use the pool which is open from June to August, and the yard which is shared.

Interaction with guests

Communication of Host: Upon booking, you will receive a Welcome Email from me letting you know our address, where to park and how to enter the room which has 24 hour access. Communication beyond that is completely up to you! I do encourage guests to please let me know if there is a need to meet.

We live on the property, and the yard and pool is shared, but often we don't see the guests - we are here if you need anything or have questions. Also, we are often on vacation ourselves during the summer months so I'm not always home when you arrive but the room will be ready for your arrival, I have an excellent cleaning crew who knows your schedule!

We do have two large dogs living here who you will most likely see and meet. They have a pen in which they lounge around all day so please know they aren't wandering around the yard.

Other things to note

1) We have a 14 year old certified babysitter on site! Our daughter charges $5/hr per child.
2) The stairs leading to the apartment have a handicap lift should you need assistance with the stairs. Due to this, the stairway which is standard 3' can seem narrow. We usually keep the lift under the roof but if it's in your way during your stay, please let us know and we can easily lower it.

THE BAD AND THE UGLY: It seems all of Ashland is mowed and blown on Monday. I've asked our gardener (who also maintains the yards around us) to come after 9am for your convenience. On Tuesdays the trash is picked up and that seems to go on forever.
We have two large dogs - a lab and a shepherd. They have their own pen but sometimes they wander a bit because I also have two teenagers who are trying, but are only hitting 89% diligence with keeping the pen closed. It hasn't been a problem for people who aren't dog people, they just tell me and suddenly the kids bust out 100% so I know they have it in them.

We have two dogs living with us. They don't roam around the yard as they have their own pen. Many guests delight in walking them, which is great, and some guests aren't as into dogs - also fine. Just wanted to let you know they won't be greeting you every time you walk in the gate!

This place is a PERFECT location for everything you could want or need in Ashland. Added bonus, if you are a dog lover, you get the company of two sweet dogs. Katy is an excellent host. Comfortable beds, every appointment in the apartment you could need. Thank you for a great weekend! We will be back!

The Carter House, specifically the Carriage Apt, is a great location...close to town, easy access, quiet alley, and a comfortable place to hang out when not attending a play or eating dinner in town. The stair access is a bit narrow but was not a problem for us. The layout is perfect for 2 of us, but the extra couch can accommodate another. We love having a full kitchen allowing us the option of eating in or out (Safeway is across the street). Overall we LOVE the Carriage Apt and will stay here again.

Clean, comfortable, especially enjoyed the comfy sheets and duvet,excellent location as we walked everywhere; close to shops, theatres, everywhere. Hosts were great and let us keep the car parked there until our matinee was over! Loved playing with the friendly dogs; especially Bella. Drove 8 hours without a/c in our car to 99 degree temps in Ashland, but the pool wasn't clean enough to swim in. We were really looking fwd to a dip in the pool, so we were disappointed. Owners were cleaning it out the next morning, but it was not ready when we checked out 2 days later.

Response from Katy:
Hello! Thank you for the nice review! Yes, the pool and Bella! Bella jumps in ponds, rivers and lakes and the algae hitchhikers wreak havoc on the pool! It's all clean now and ready to rock!

I had the pleasure of staying in Katy's place for two nights in Ashland. It's an awesome find and just a stones throw away from downtown. It's far enough where you can't hear any street, shopping, or bar noise but close enough to easily walk anywhere. I also had the pleasure of personally meeting Katy and played fetch with one of her dogs! The unit has an A/C (which is a life saver here in the summers), a full kitchen, and a little porch!
