About

Experience "Concierge service with a B and B touch"! 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. www.brittfest.org

The best B & B in Ashland.

The Iris Inn is well located for the Ashland Theater Festival, about a 12 minute walk from the theaters. The Innkeepers are outstanding, as are the breakfasts.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! Breakfast is a great time for guests to chat about plays, ask about things to do in the area and enjoy our locally roasted GoodBean Coffee with our varied daily menu. We are fortunate to be able to offer an easy walk to the theaters, without being in the hubbub of town. We look forward to your return.

OSF Retreat

A stay at the Iris Inn is like returning to one's childhood home. It's a wonderful space to unwind and be pampered while enjoying wonderful theater in downtown Ashland. Vicky Capp is the ultimate catalyst for our getawayand accomplished innkeeper.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your very kind comments! We have stayed connected to families who really had the inn as their childhood home! A couple whose grandparents owned the home in the 1920's were just here. It was fun to listen to family stories about Ashland he heard as he was growing up. This summer, we have a woman who grew up in the home here with her family for a reunion. We look forward to your return.

We have been coming to the Iris Inn at least once a year for over 20 years, and it is always a wonderful experience. It feels like our home away from home.

Innkeeper Response
We value all our guests, but hold a special spot in our hearts for returning guests...especially long time guests like yourselves! This is our home and we welcome our guests as friends and family should be honored with warm hospitality. Thank you again and again for your yearly return to the inn!

Entire Experience was wonderful. Stayed at Iris Inn because a cousin had stayed there before and recommended it. Met up with her and another cousin and we had a great time. Some peanuts or something else would enhance the Happy Hour wine experience. Was an unexpected touch any way.

Innkeeper Response
Family and friends meeting at the inn is a fun time for guests, as well as the innkeepers. There is just something special about it! Thanks for the snack suggestion...we will keep it in mind for the future.

What a wonderful place to stay in Ashland. It is very convenient to the theaters & dining. Vicki was the perfect host.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind comments. We love our Ashland location...not too close to the busy downtown, but just the right distance for a leisurely walk to the theaters. It has been a joy being a part of Ashland and hosting at the inn for 36 years!

Short, sweet stay in Ashland

4.6 on September 21, 2017

The owners and D were wonderful, gracious hosts. The dining experience (breakfast) was beautifully presented and delicious. All of our needs were carafully sussed out and attended to with élan. This B&B was a perfect setting for our short stay in Ashland when we stopped to take in a play at the Shakespearean Festival on a drive from Seattle to San Francisco. Will definitely be back.


Iris Inn Ashland - Awesome

Fun stay in B&B close to downtown celebrating b-day

5 on September 07, 2017

Nice walk to downtown to theater. . Opportunity to chat at breakfast with interesting guests. Excellent accommodations and meals. Would recommend, preferably to stay at a time when free from smoke from regional fires.

Innkeeper Response
We love the lively breakfast conversations among our guests. Every's take on a play start discussions that last long after the plates are cleared. How great is that? Southern Oregon seems to have added a 5th season to the year, we are sad to say...smoke at times during the summer seems to be the norm in the past few years. Mother Nature will hopefully change "her" way in the upcoming summer.

Ashland and Iris Inn....every summer!

5 on August 13, 2017

My sisters and I visit Ashland and the Shakespeare Festival every summer. The Iris Inn, along with the theater, is the highlight of our stay. The hospitality of innkeepers, Vicki and Greg is welcoming and professional. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's a five-star inn in my book. Thank you, Iris Inn!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We look forward to your stay again in 2018.
