Our exchange with Dawn and Ram was perfect. Their home is very charming and clean, and is decorated with beautiful bird paintings by Ram. The spa was very nice and has views of the garden and the river. Walking along the beach in Newport was a lot of fun, and driving around the area seeing all the sights is easy to do. We will be glad to return to this beautiful environment.

Wonderful home in a glorious setting. We had ourselves a little Girls Retreat: Morning hot tub, brekkies al fresco on the terrace, communing with nature (and chickens!), played on the beach at Newport just 7 miles away (and enjoyed amazing restaurants there as well). We could't possibly have enjoyed our stay more. Dawn and Ram are lovely and generous hosts, House manual = super helpful. When I arrived home I was thrilled to find they'd taken such good care of my place.

What we said about Susanne's house:

Location, location, location! You literally can't get any closer to the world renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival than Susanne's lovely flat. It's tastefully decorated, clean and right in the heart of downtown Ashland. We had an absolutely wonderful stay and Susanne was always very responsive to our emails and inquiries leading up to the exchange. She also took excellent care of our home and birds.
