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

A wonderful place! Vicki and Greg and staff take care of your every need. Quiet, peaceful, wonderful gardens, fabulous breakfasts. And being 4 large blocks away from downtown, walking is a perfect beginning and end to the day - and avoid the parking hassle.

Iris Inn has everything to recommend it. The house itself is lovely with lots of outdoor space to relax and enjoy the weather. The innkeeper, Vikki,is wonderful. She is welcoming, knowledgabke about the area and extremely helpful. When we booked a rafting trip, she provided us with sunscreen and croakies in addition to towels. Breakfasts were delicious and both Vikki and Dean (the cook) were attentive to all dietary needs. The setting provided a good atmosphere for conversation among guests. We noted many return travellers. This was a great place to stay and added to the enjoyment of attending the OSF plays.

I took my mother to Ashland for her Christmas present. The Iris inn's grounds were beautiful, the rooms were clean, comfortable and well decorated. The food was excellent without being over the top. The location was perfect for walking through the park and, of course, walking to the plays. Would happily stay again.

We have been regularly staying at the Iris Inn once (or more) a year for at least the last 15 years and have NEVER been disappointed. Vicki and Greg are wonderful hosts, the breakfasts are always outstanding, delicious and filling, and everything is clean and comfortable.

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.
