About

The Winchester Inn offers affordable excellence with an attention to detail and comfort; while the restaurant and wine bar offer innovative cuisine, award wining wine lists, and attentive service in a warm cozy atmosphere. This traditional Victorian stately home is in perfect harmony with its surroundings, situated in the midst of an English country garden. As guests approach the main building pansies line the path that leads to the front entrance, the gardens are encompassed by a herbaceous border whilst colorful tulips are scattered throughout the grounds. The interior is no less stunning, the rooms are a tribute to comfort and subtlety, with soft, warm shades and opulent furniture. Dinner may be taken in the popular restaurant, whilst in the summer, food is served outdoors. Wherever guests dine, the sumptuous flavors and textures are of the highest standards. The new wine bar provides a nice tasting of local wineries and a special nightly wine flight. The quaint gazebo is a perfect site for small weddings and receptions. Sporting activities available nearby include fishing, golf, ballooning or skiing while the more artistic guest may wish to visit the Ashland Shakespeare Festival or the Britt Music Festival, information on which may be obtained from the inn. If you are unable to find rooms through BedandBreakfast, please check out our personal availability calendar or call us to double check.

A favorite disappoints

3.8 on October 01, 2017

The room was nice and cozy as were all of the amenities. One day we had a threadbare towel which was a surprise. Otherwise all was great. The breakfast was delicious but mine was cold when it should have been hot. Service at times was off. Dinner was an overpriced and inedible portion of duck. That was a great surprise. The service was also poor for dinner.


Best breakfast ever

4.2 on September 04, 2017

Great location. Convenient to the downtown area. Relaxing environment in spite of a very busy season weekend. The breakfast was incredible.. You won't find any better!!!


Dress early for the Day

Very nice, fine landscaping. Much as would be expected. In room coffee self service would be nice as one could gently begin one's day rather than need to pop up and face the world.


Will definitely be back

We only stayed overnight, but wish we stayed longer. We stayed in Sunset Room - very comfortable for 2 of us. Breakfast was fresh and delish (although they did forget my GF request). We wish we made a reservation for the onsite restaurant as they were all booked up (gives us one more reason to go back there!)


Another wonderful stay at Winchester Inn.

We loved our stay in the Courtyard Suite. Cozy, warm and pleasant inside, especially during a a very blustery and cold night! Great food, live music, and shops nearby.


Charming!

A beautifully decorated b&b. Great location in Ashland for the Shakespeare festival. A great bar and restaurant also. Staff were very helpful. Loved staying here.

The stay at the Winchester was lovely. My room was exceptionally large and comfortable with pleasant views of trees in bud from the cozy window seat. With a bar and dining room on location, it was wonderful to have all of my needs met in one charming location.


great weekend

A great find in the center of Ashland. Staff could not have been nicer.


Winchester Inn--The Perfect Stay in Ashland

5 on October 15, 2014

We try to stay at the Winchester each year when we return to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. It is so popular that one must book well in advance. The Sunset Room is a real bargain for the price, and it has a very nice balcony for viewing the city and a bed that requires a small two step assistance to get up into the bed. And the bed is luxurious--fit for a queen. The Winchester is so convenient to the theaters--it is only a few minutes comfortable walk, which is a real convenience after the evening outdoor performance. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed. Everything is spotless and well-maintained. The staff is so friendly and accommodating--appearing literally out of nowhere when one is hefting an oversize bag up or down the stairs to voluntarily do the heavy lifting for you. Breakfast comes with the room and it is an amazing morning treat. I cannot recall exactly what we had the last time, but it was scrumptous. Usually there is a fantastic fruit plate, scones, a very appealing egg dish, French Toast or Waffles. What a start to the day! Their dinners are equally as good, although we enjoy other restaurants in Ashland and ensure we get some variety. We cannot say enough good things about the Winchester. You must stay there to believe it.
