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

My favorite B&B

5 on November 14, 2016

For those who are there in the warm weather the porch and back garden are wonderful. Walk to all the plays. In cooler weather the parlor is cozy.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your recent review of The Iris Inn! Fall is a beautiful time to visit Ashland and enjoy our late garden flowers. As you said...guests gather in the cozy and sunny parlor during the cooler weather to enjoy a hot cup of tea or a sip of wine, port or sherry. We appreciate your years of making the inn your place to stay while in Ashland.


Love this BandB

4.8 on October 24, 2016

We have stayed here a few times in the past as well as other BandB's. This is our favorite Vicki and Greg have worked hard to make this a comfortable, relaxing stay. They are very helpful with suggestions for shopping, wine tasting, current plays,great restaurants and interesting sights to explore.

Innkeeper Response
We work hard to live up to our pledge of Concierge service with a B & B touch! The inn has been "home" to many guests since 1982, as well as our own home...comfortable and relaxing is important for all of us, whether playing or working. Ashland and the Rogue Valley offer so much for people to do while visiting. It's a pleasure to share it with our guests.


Amazing B&B in Ashland.

Two-time visitor with family

5 on September 07, 2016

Highly recommend the Iris Inn, where I have stayed twice with family, recently celebrating a birthday. The charming, well-maintained inn with its proximity to downtown; accommodating, service-oriented management; and out-of-this-world breakfasts is a first-class place to stay. The decor and opportunity to visit with other residents are icing on the cake!! The hostess and staff are fun and enjoy people and don't miss an opportunity to shine! I plan to return!!


Another Great Stay

We have been staying at the Iris Inn for close to 20 years, and they never fail to provide a clean, comfortable and enjoyable stay.


Wonderful!

4.2 on August 10, 2016

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.


Lovely B&B

5 on August 02, 2016

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.


Beautiful Memories

5 on July 28, 2016

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.


Another Outstanding Stay

5 on July 07, 2016

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.


Relax and be pampered
