About

Beautiful 1883 Victorian on National Register, recently restored, just two blocks from Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) theaters and Ashland's downtown Plaza. While staying with us you will feel like you are 'home' as you enjoy our luxurious accommodations which have the modern conveniences of Wi-Fi, the comforts of fine linens combined with gracious sitting rooms and magnificent antiques, some of which are original to the house. The ten guest rooms are all newly furnished and offer amenities including fireplaces, TVs in some, an outdoor garden and romantic seating areas. Our delicious gourmet breakfast and afternoon cookies are the talk of the town and enjoyed by guests every morning. So much that we now have a McCall House cookbook which guests can take home with them and share with their family and friends.

First time road-tripping down the OR/CA coast!

This is a great historic building to stay in on a drive down the Oregon and California coastline.

One of Ashland's best

4.6 on April 11, 2017

We have stayed at the McCall House many times over the years and it is our favorite. It is barely two blocks from the Oregon Shakespeare theatres, Lithia Park and the downtown. If we come for 3 days we park our car and don’t get back in it until we leave. The rooms have all the touches of a classic Victorian B&B and though they are filled with antique furnishings, the modern touches such as quiet, effective temperature control, wifi and high quality mattresses and linens make each room a great experience. Many of the rooms had the baths installed during the remodel into a B&B, so they are fairly new with modern fixtures. Even though the house is close to the downtown, it is quiet and surrounded by beautiful landscaping with a small patio out back. There are always fresh cookies and sherry available downstairs and the breakfasts are always a unique creation. Michelle, the new innkeeper, went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. There are ground floor and second floor rooms. The second floor has a rather steep, twenty stair climb. There are two parlors in front, one with a fireplace so if you are visiting with friends you have a place for it.

Undecided about a return

3.6 on January 03, 2017

A beautiful property very well located to downtown Ashland. Our room was lovely and cozy. The property is the reason we would return. The reasons we would question a return are the noise from a nearby busy street.


Great place to stay in Ashland

My wife and I visited for our anniversary in early November. Although it is the "off" season in Ashland, we found plenty to do and had a marvelous time. The McCall house was wonderful and the staff was extremely helpful in making our stay a memorable one. We will definitely stay here again.


Wonderful B&B in Ashland

5 on November 17, 2016

My wife and I stayed for our anniversary. The house is gorgeous, the staff is lovely and we were able to walk to almost everything we wanted to do. An early morning walk on a sunny fall day through Lithia Park was just what we needed. We will definitely stay here again.


Devoted to the McCall House

5 on October 25, 2016

We stay here every year on our annual visit to OSF. McCall House is part of the pleasure. The rooms are comfortable, the location is the best, the breakfasts are wonderful, and the other guests are part of the pleasure. We book a year ahead of time to make sure we can stay here.
