About

Vicki and Greg have been welcoming guests to The Iris Inn since 1982. The Inn is located close to downtown, yet is off Main Street in a quiet neighborhood. All rooms are individually decorated and have views of surrounding mountains and hillsides. Guests spend their leisure time at the inn on the sunny front porch looking upon Mt. Ashland or in the lush garden setting of the patio/deck area. Ashland is home to the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival, presenting plays on 3 stages. Plays range from traditional Shakespeare to contemporary. The plays run from mid-February through October. In addition to OSF, many guests venture to nearby Jacksonville for shopping and the Britt Music Festivals. The festival is held every summer in a beautiful outdoor amphitheater; contemporary artists favor the "Hill" from June through mid-September. In addition, the outstanding Britt Orchestra performs during the first of August. .brittfest.org

had a great time

If this is to be your first B & B experience, the Iris Inn would be an excellent place to start. The inn was friendly, quaint, clean, accomodating, and well-located. Vicki and Greg have lived in Ashland for years so are knowledgable about the area, the plays, and Shakespere himself. Breakfasts were delicious and varied, and they promoted good conversation around the table. The bedspreads, sheets, towels and pillows were quality, the neighborhood quiet, and I slept very well. I should have left with a few of those provided soapless face pads that clean so well and leave the skin feeling smooth. I wonder where Vicki got them; I'm missing them now. Wifi connection was perfect. I was at the Iris Inn for four days and saw three plays. It was fun to discuss them in the a.m., particularly with Dean "the cook," who has seen them all and is well-versed on performances of all genres. The Iris Inn is a peaceful place to stay while in Ashland. It has a porch with comfortable seating to watch the deer eating grass in the field across the street. As a lone traveler, I felt very comfortable at the Iris Inn, and I would definitely return.

Super B&B close to downtown Ashland. Shakespeare, shops and plenty of eating establishments. What more could you ask for? The Iris Inn is comfortable, convenient and private. Delicious food and all the amenities, including chocolates and port after a busy day of exploring the town. Fabulous innkeepers!


Charming!

My husband and I have stayed here before and we love it! Super clean, quiet, and relaxing. We will stay here again when in the Ashland, OR area. Loved it!


Snow day at the Iris

Our bedroom and bathroom were so clean and beautiful. Breakfast was AMAZING!!! Greg and Vicki were lovely hosts. They followed through to the last detail in the morning, shoveling snow from the parking area and driveway and even sweeping it off my car.


Great Ashland B&B

Over the top

The Iris excels in every category. Innkeepers Vicki and Greg will help you as needed but otherwise stay in the background and allow the guests to mingle. Rooms and location are excellent. Breakfasts are to die for. We give the Iris a top rating.


Our second home...in Ashland

5 on June 17, 2015

We visit twice a year to see the plays, and are Festival members so that we can get choice tickets in the fall for the following year. That way, we can be sure to get a room at Iris for those dates! It's a popular place, with a lovely garden and fine breakfasts over which we can chat with other guests about the plays (and life, or whatever). Walk to the theatres and shopping is easy but just enough exercise!
