We had an awesome time. The B&B was extremely clean, the service was best I have ever received, and the food was wonderful. They tailored to our needs without concern. Rooms were really nice and the outside was comfortable and peaceful in the garden.

This place is so charming and sweet! Lots of attention to detail, like late evening chocolate and port service and evening wine. The breakfast was delicious and the staff super friendly and accommodating. They gave us detailed directions to places around town and made other accommodations for us during our stay. Highly recommend for a quite and pleasant stay in Ashland! We will definitely stay again, thank you!

It was my husband's first time in Ashland and this set the bar for our next visit. We will be back. Beautiful setting, lovely older home, great hosts and walking distance to theaters. Couldn't ask for anything more.

The staff were friendly and extremely welcoming without being intrusive. The breakfast was delicious and our room was very comfortable. Location is perfect with a very easy 10 - 15 minute walk to the theaters. Will definitely be back!

I really don't consider myself a B&B type of person however, the minute I walked through the door of this house and was greeted by the innkeeper, Jasmine, I instantly felt at home. This is one of the cleanest, high class places I have ever stayed, included $500/night hotels in Malibu. One morning asked if a friend could join me for breakfast and Jasmine graciously said yes and served us a beautiful meal with a minimal charge. The only downside to my stay was that my boyfriend wasn't there to share the beautiful, romantic setting with me. I will be a return customer for life. Thank you, Jasmine.
We look forward to your return with your boyfriend for a romantic getaway and to visit friends in town. We're happy that we have helped you become a B&B fan! Jasmine is a treasure as our long time assistant innkeeper. We value her beyond words and am happy to hear the guests agree with us.
5 on July 14, 2013
It was cozy and I felt at home. When I visited there were return patrons so that goes to show you a lot. It was about a 7 minute walk to the playhouses which was great. I shall return.
4.6 on June 08, 2013
This was our fifth stay at The Iris Inn. Obviously, we enjoy it or we wouldn't keep coming back. Vicki and all her staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and at home. The breakfasts are extremely tasty and we seem to come back home a few pounds heavier because of them, they're hard to resist. The Inn is also within easy walking distance to downtown Ashland and the Shakespeare Festival, a definite plus. We usually park the car when we get there and don't use it again until we leave. We always enjoy our stay at the Inn!
We value all our guests, but having guests return year after year is a great compliment! Parking in Ashland is a challenge; happy you enjoyed the short walk to town from the inn.
5 on June 05, 2013
Excellent place to stay in Ashland. Within walking distance from the theaters and downtown, this lovely B & B offers great amenities, excellent breakfasts, a beautiful garden sitting area, and so much more. We will definitely be back.
We will look forward to your future return to the inn.
5 on May 27, 2013
Wish we had discovered this B & B in Ashland on our previous visits. We stayed in the Vista Room. It was roomy and comfortable. The inn keepers were wonderful and did everything possible to make our stay a pleasant experience. The morning breakfasts were all very good. Highly recommend. It will be our first choice in Ashland for future visits.
The Vista Room is a guest favorite with the views of the mountains and the inn's gardens. The best compliment for our breakfasts is the guests happy response when served! Being first choice for your stay in Ashland is important to all who work at the inn.
4.8 on May 01, 2013
Lovingly appointed, our room in this charming B&B was our home for too short a time. Located conveniently near enough to the shopping area and to the theaters of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to easily walk to them, but on a nice quiet side street, it's location is ideal. Vicki, the owner of this B&B, made us feel at home and a part of her community of roomers with a nice afternoon wine break, good conversation, and a wonderfully creative and delicious breakfast. This is now definitely our home when we visit the OSF in the future.
5 on April 10, 2013
Excellent accomodations with the most cordial staff and delicious breakfast. They go out of their way to provide a pleasant stay at this lovely Inn.
Concierge Service with the B & B Touch is our motto and we strive to meet the high standard we have set for ourselves.
4.8 on March 17, 2013
The Iris Inn was recommended to us by the innkeeper of another Ashland B&B that we've loved and used for years, but who was closing down his B&B due to family considerations. As much as we loved the first B&B, the Iris is much better and if we had found it first, we would have used it all these many years instead. Charming home, comfortable beds and rooms, wonderful breakfasts, close to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival campus and the rest of downtown. What more could you ask for?
Thank you for your very nice compliments! We had "big shoes to fill" after your years with Raleigh and family. We look forward to your future visits at the inn.
4.4 on October 29, 2012
After spending 3 nights at the Iris Inn, I concluded it's the best B & B I know. The owner acts also as concierge, making recommendations and reservations (without expecting a tip!)
3.0 on October 15, 2012
The Vista room has a great view and a comfortable bed! We enjoyed coffee on the front porch and port and chocolates in the late evenings in the beautiful back patio. Lots of places for privacy and quiet or to mingle with other guests. The center of Ashland is a comfortable walking distance from the Iris Inn--just perfect to walk-off dinner!
4.0 on September 29, 2012
The Iris was flexible: they cooked me vegan breakfasts and even served me a half hour earlier then their normal schedule so that I could leave early with my bicycle group on the last day.
5 on September 21, 2012
In September, we visited the Iris Inn for our third stay. Although the innkeeper was away, we were left in good hands. Everything went perfectly, and the food was fabulous. The Inn's location is perfect for the theater.
4.8 on August 27, 2012
Love this B&B. Attention to every detail and a very personable inn keeper make this a consistently outstanding place to stay.

Trips to Ashland are always, ahem, interesting. My mother and I tend to take an annual trip to see the plays and spend a weekend in one of the B&B s, so we have a good reference of what the other places to stay at in Ashland are like. The Iris is our new fave! Although the house itself lacks the gingerbread Victorian charms that I fawn and drool over, it boasts a beautiful garden with several little areas to sit and relax, and the biggest fig tree I have ever seen! It is a few blocks away from the heart of town, so nice and quiet in the evening, but well within walking distance of all the fun stuff. The inside of the house is adorable! There are several hutches and cupboards displaying an enviable array of teacups and vintage dishes, a cute and comfy little couch, and oodles of board games, making it feel cozy and homey. The owners were away on vacation, but the lady watching the house was wonderfully nice and inviting and an absolute delight! She also whipped up a stellar breakfast of pear puff pancakes with a delicious brown sugar sour cream sauce and chicken apple sausage! YUM! All this being said, I haven't even gotten to the best part, the Iris Inn is wonderfully CLEAN! It was obvious that the bed linens were freshly laundered, the bathroom was spotless, the floors were impeccable, and everything was perfect! I highly recommend the Iris for anyone's next stay in Ashland! It will compliment and improve your time!
4.6 on June 17, 2012
Vicki could not have been more hospitable, more knowledgable and helpful re dining around, and more buttoned up re innkeeping. We will seek to stay with her again when we return to Ashland. The location is convenient, the ambience very relaxing.
5 on June 16, 2012
This place feels like home! Vickie's attention to detail is exceptional, from nightly available port and sherry, to remembering your morning drink of choice, to providing restaurant menu's and reviews. You will not be disappointed with your stay at the Iris Inn. I like it so well I came back a second year and wouldn't dream of staying any place else in Ashland. Location is also close enough to downtown to walk to the shows.
5 on May 09, 2012
Iris Inn is our home away from home in Ashland and has been for 30 years. We always check their availability before buying tickets to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, The Inn is that instrumental to our travel to this wonderful small town. Of course the rooms and breakfasts are wonderful, and the guests are interesting -- breakfast conversations about the plays the previous night are always a highlight of a stay -- but the real deciding factor is, and has been, the hospitality of Innkeepers Vicki and Greg.
4.0 on May 09, 2012
Room decor was a bit dated, although the bathroom had been redone and was wonderful. Hot enough water for two showers was erratic. Hearing guests walking overhead was the only negative about the Parlor Room. Of the three other rooms we saw, we still preferred this one (did not see Porch Room). Owners and Staff were outstanding hosts/chefs/info providers in every way, and I would definitely keep the Iris Inn on my list for my next visit to Ashland!
3.8 on April 18, 2012
breakfast is fab and the owners knowledgeable about places to ear and things to do.
5 on March 21, 2012
The Iris Inn is my Ashland getaway inn. The rooms are (my favorite are the Vista Room and Blue Room) spotless and tasteful with beds so comfortable that I could stay in them all day if there wasn't so much to do in Ashland. And of course I wouldn't want to miss Vicki's breakfast. The Inn is quiet and a perfect walk to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the shops. The innkeeper is knowledgeable and very helpful with all kinds of questions. I look forward to my next visit.

A most pleasant experience at this beautiful building with very gracious hosts

Vicki and her staff go the "extra" mile in helping guests feel pampered. Greg, also, is an experienced air traveler who shares his experiences, wisdom and tips. Breakfast are delicious and made "from scratch".
5 on September 25, 2011
We have been going to the Iris Inn in Ashland, Oregon off and on for the past 20 years and always look forward to the opportunity to stay in this lovely Inn. It is so clean, comfortable and welcoming that we consider it our home away from home. Vicki is a delight, a great cook and wonderful hostess. We always enjoy our evening and morning chats with the other guests about the Ashland plays, and Vicki is quite helpful in making reservations for us, telling us about other activities that are going on in the area, and providing us that delicious glass of lemonade or wine when we return after a day of exploring. All in all we have loved each visit to the Iris Inn and will continue to make this our BnB of choice.
4.8 on September 25, 2011
First time here and we will be back! Good location. Wonderful backyard gardens for relaxing. Excellent food and nice to have the flexibility of two seatings.

Quaint inn, nicely appointed, with gracious innkeepers, clean well-kept rooms, and only 10 minute walk from OSF.

Beautiful home with excellent innkeepers who thrive to make your visit wonderful. Food was great. We will go again with no reservation.

Vicky was the best and made sure all our needs were taken care of.
5 on July 17, 2011
We have become repeat visitors to the Iris Inn. The rooms are comfortable and it goes without saying that everything is clean and tidy. Vicki is welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts are delicious. In speaking to other guests at breakfast, we have found that many are also repeat visitors. I can't think of a better recommendation. The Inn is also within walking distance to the OSF theaters.
4.8 on July 11, 2011
We will continue to plan our OSF visits around the Iris Inn availability. Vicki and her staff are the best!
4.8 on July 01, 2011
Outstanding in every way possible. Breakfasts are varied and excellent. Rooms are clean and homey. Turn down service. Afternoon wine always welcomed. Grounds clean, quiet and inviting! Hosts are the best part!
3.6 on June 22, 2011
Recent 3 night stay and inn keepers are very nice. Inn itself is nice, clean, beautiful backyard, east to walk to downtown and has off street parking. The breakfast was very light, although well prepared. I would have preferred a bit more privacy, the rooms all open to one hallway upstairs, so I could hear other rooms and people. And in our particular room, the bathroom was very small. Also, the room was very hot, (left windows open and ceiling fan on high to try to cool down) so slept on top of the bed to stay cool. It would not stop me from staying again, but did detract from the experience for us.
4.0 on May 30, 2011
Their banana bread french toast was FABULOUS! This B&B was easy to find, quiet and clean. I would recommend it. Close to restaurants, park, and theaters.
4.2 on May 30, 2011
We were very pleased that the Inn was still operating since the last visit in 1989. It was even better than we remembered!
4.2 on May 28, 2011
Wonderful location - close to all major activies associated with OSF (easy walking distance). Beautiful gardens for enjoyment with evening wine offering. Vicky makes you feel welcome from the moment you step on the porch. Worth the stay.

Ask for the breakfast fruit salad recipe! Mary O'Brien
5 on May 07, 2011
Our three-night stay was "worth its weight in gold". Several rooms had nice upgrades. New towels this season in the bathrooms were a nice surprise. Innkeeper Vicki is always adding new touches. Breakfasts are superb. Vicki and staff put a lot of time and effort into making old recipes and introducing new ones. One of the best things about the service is that the innkeepers provide helpful information and service but just "let you be" if you desire a quiet, tranquil time. The inn has beautiful gardens for guest use in picnicking (our food, of course), reading, or watching the birds flit around. Finally, each year the experience is as good or better than the prior one. Sound like a perfect 10?
4.4 on March 21, 2011
We have stayed at the Iris Inn a couple of times and will continue to come back when we are visiting Ashland. Vicki is a great host and the rooms are intersting and comfortable.
3.8 on March 10, 2011
We stopped in Ashland on our way to the Oregon coast and stayed at the very quaint Iris Inn. The Innkeepers were very knowledgeable and helpful about the Ashland area. We were made to feel at home and treated to a fantastic breakfast. We'll definitely choose the Iris Inn again when traveling through the area.
4.6 on March 04, 2011
Since it was off season, I had the entire place to myself. It was quiet, relaxing and an easy walk to downtown Ashland. Vicki and Greg are very gracious innkeepers and the place was beautiful! Since I had an early departure, Vicki provided some muffins for the road which was an unexpected and tasty surprise!

Everything was great, Bathroom had been modernized since our last stay. Accommodations comfortable, breakfasts excellent, owners very pleasant and helpful.

My wife and I used to drive from Seattle to Central California non-stop, but we finally decided to slow things down a little and stay at a B&B this past Christmas. One key consideration was a pet friendly establishment. After a lot of research we choose the Iris Inn not just because the inn was pet friendly, but also because other reviews on the Iris Inn were great and it is located just a few minutes walk from downtown Ashland. Oliver (our dog) was also made to feel at home which we really appreciated. Vicki's hospitality was exactly as represented in other reviews, as were the wonderful breakfasts. She even had a pot of coffee ready for us in the morning when we came downstairs even though breakfast was still an hour later. The next time we head south and are traveling thru Ashland we will certainly be staying at the Iris Inn again.
3.6 on October 11, 2010
The innkeeper makes this a great place to stay. She has 27 years of life experience in Ashland. She is a conversationalist backed by knowledge of the area & people.

Our 2nd visit. Our expectations were hight o begin with. Very friendly owner & staff. Very nice grounds. Wine happy hour always a plus. Our place to stay in Ashland. Highly recommended. Added value would be cheese with the wine.
5 on May 04, 2009
We've been staying at the Iris for about 25 years, along with dozens of loyal clientele who go to Ashland for theatre and the excellent restaurants. There's a reason for such loyalty; the innkeeper, Vicki Capp is a superb hostess (her husband Greg-- her co-innkeeper-- works elsewhere full time, so he is rarely in evidence for very long). She has turned the old Victorian she bought about 30 years ago into a charming home away from home. She bends over backwards to help with reservations at the restaurants and with advice about things to do in this lovely town. Her own breakfasts are splendid. We have stayed at dozens of B&B's in the US, Europe, and the UK, and in Vicki's hands the Iris ranks right up there among the very best. Reserve early; the Inn is often full, particularly at the height of the theatre season (June-September).

Iris Inn has been our Ashland destination for 17 years, and it still exceeds our expectations. Vicki and Greg are dears, the rooms are so-o-o comfortable, and breakfasts are gourmet award-winning quality. Try it!
5 on July 24, 2008
This charming Inn has a wonderful location - close to the Shakespeare Theaters, but far enough away to relax in quiet and comfort. Every detail is taken care of for you so your stay is restful. The breakfast is carefully prepared and always delicious. Beds are great, garden beautiful, but the Innkeeper, Vicki Capp, goes the extra mile to see to it that everything is perfect. You may arrive as a stranger, but you leave as a friend. I have been back often.

We have stayed at Iris Inn for about 8 years now during Memorial Day weekend and love it. Vicki (and Greg when he is there) make you feel like you have come as their houseguests! We have also met other guests that have become friends. The food is great - the house inpeccably clean and it is just an overall delightful B&B. We have stayed in about 6 B&Bs in Ashland and this one is the best.
5 on June 04, 2008
We have stayed at the Iris Inn for 9+ years during the Memorial Day weekend. It is a real treat, Vicki will do what ever it takes to make your stay enjoyable,she'll make dinner reservations, help with tickets to future plays, direct you to the best wineries, she does it all.

The Iris Inn’s porch welcomed us to serene afternoons of warm sun, cool shade and good conversation. Innkeepers, Vicki & Greg, provide tasty wines, tempting breakdasts, beautiful , cozy rooms and the expert touches of caring hosts. They transformed our stay into a visit with friends punctuated by the grand shopping, fine meals and fabulous plays of Ashland!
5 on October 08, 2007
I was on a special diet and Vicky was so helpful - left the fridge for guests use. Outstanding - an innkeeper who goes above and beyond to assure her guests comfort and safety - supplying "fanny pack" and good tips for bicycling. A lovely retreat, quiet, beautiful, delicious healthy food.
5 on September 20, 2007
We have been returning to this lovely inn every year for over twenty years as have many others - nothing could speak more of the comfort and hospitality of the place.

For twenty years it has been a pleasure to stay at the Iris Inn. Greg and Vicki devote so much of themselves to the inn providing an excellent experience. It is my home away from home.

The Iris Inn was spectacular! My two best friends and I, along with our mother's, engaged three rooms in this lovely home. Our experience was wonderful. The decor is charming, the food was superb, and the little touches were perfect. This Inn is a few extra blocks from the Festival, so bring your walking shoes, but we walked "home" after the evening play. Ashland is such a wonderful place.
We love first time visitors to a bed and breakfast! It's rewarding to see their happiness when they are pampered with a yummy breakfast and all the amenities that we offer to our guests. Hosting friends and family who meet at the inn is an honor, since they chose to stay at The Iris Inn while enjoying Ashland and all it has to offer. As we celebrate 25 years of innkeeping, we look forward to more "first timers" in the coming years.
