Iris Inn

59 Manzanita Street , Ashland, OR 97520 USA (Show map)


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.

Great Ashland B&B

4.8 on October 07, 2015

Great location (short walking distance to downtown and plays), great breakfast, great room, nice extras, terrific hosts.

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 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!

Lovely B&B with extraordinary service.

From the gracious welcome to the jelly bean dish, from wine in the afternoon to port & sherry in the late evenings, this is a wonderful place to stay. Vicki is friendly & an amazing cook, breakfasts are savored! This is our go to place in Ashland!

1st anniversary

probably the best B&B in Ashland, great location, house and hostess

B and B at its finest

5 on May 25, 2015

The Iris Inn is set 10 minutes walking from OSF theaters. Rooms are nicely appointed and cozy. The garden is beautiful for gazing or relaxing. We sometimes bring in food for a garden lunch. Vicki is a superb cook and her breakfast's are creative. There are usually lively conversations with other guests. Not to miss!

Very professionaly and cheerfully run, walking distance from town

5 on May 25, 2015

While the address would lead you to think this is near the main road into town, it is in fact well off it. By going up half a block, you can saunter down an untrafficed side street to and from town. This is across from a block of school grounds, so it is both vacant during the summer, and serene and open at night. The 30 years of experience running a B&B shows in how well it is managed. We did not need a vast or overdecorated room to hang out in---the downstairs parlor is fine for that. And, for those who want to still keep up, there is the New York Times as well as the local paper every day. Parking is off the street by the way.

Just what we were looking for.

Greg and Vicki were delightful hosts with excellent recommendations for dinner. The inn is a nice quick walk from all the Ashland theaters. One of the few inns that I could find that would accommodate three people.

3-day stay mid-March, 2015

My wife and I stayed for 3 days. Excellent, personal service, delicious breakfasts, very quiet, easy walk into town. We will certainly stay here again.

Anniversary Getaway

5 on March 23, 2015

Spent 3 nights at the Iris Inn and we were truly spoiled. Gourmet breakfasts, lovely rooms, wine in the afternoon and chocolate and port for a nightcap. Location is perfect for walking all over town, especially to the OSF. Exceeded our expectations in every aspect. We will be back to enjoy gracious hospitality and feel pampered.
