Enjoy your stay at Maxfield's, a turn of the century vintage home in Ashland, Oregon. Built in 1903, Maxfield's is a charming Victorian home in Ashland's historic district. Features include fir floors, oriental rugs and period inspired furniture. The name is inspired by the artist Maxfield Parrish. Some of his artwork is fondly displayed here. Located just a few minutes walk from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival theaters and the heart of downtown, you will be close to all of the fine restaurants, bakeries, coffee houses and specialty shops that historic Ashland offers. Don't miss our beautiful Lithia Park!

There is a queen sleeper sofa in the cozy drawing room which can be made very private. There are two covered porches, one in front, one in the rear, both with white wicker furniture. Each overlooks a small cottage garden.

A classic entry with wooden stairs and balustrade leads to the upper level which has two bedrooms featuring dormer windows and sloping ceilings. One has a queen bed, the other has a trundle bed (2 twins). Between them is a full bath.

About Steve Larson

I love to travel and I enjoy helping others make the most of their travels. Feel free to call me if you have any questions about the house, Ashland or the surrounding area.

Steve Larson purchased this house in 2002

Why Steve Larson chose Ashland

We thought Ashland would be a great place to live and put a great amount of time, thought and expense into making this vintage Victorian a dream home. It was well worth it but now it is just me so I decided to make it available to visitors. I think you will have everything you need to enjoy your visit to Ashland. Hopefully you'll feel right at home. If you like to walk you won't ever have to move your car to explore all that Ashland has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is our main attraction. It brings visitors from around the world eight months out of the year. It is also a very pretty town, nestled up against the foothills of the Siskiyou range. Because of our tourist population there are more theaters, 'off Bardway', and lots of good restaurants and great live music. Right in the heart of town we have a beautiful park that stretches along a stream. There are lots of other city recreation such as basketball and tennis courts, a golf course, city owned ski mountain, a park with a large lake for sailing, fishing, speed boating, etc. There is white water rafting and jet boat tours on the Rouge River. We have great wine tasting at a variety of vintners here as well.

Lovely Stay in Ashland

  • 4 of 5

The house was as described, very clean and well maintained. The decor was fun.There were six adults in our group and there was plenty of room in the living room, dining room and on the back porch to hang out and socialize. My favorite was the back porch with ceiling fans and a sunscreen. Very comfortable for sitting outside in the summer weather.

The location was great. We were able to walk to the theaters, restaurants and shops.

We had a little trouble with tight door locks and could not find paring knives but those are small issues.

Maxfield's is THE place to stay in Ashland, OR

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year for the four of us to spend a week at Maxfield's on Siskiyou, and it was even better than the first. We were welcomed warmly by the house and Steve was on call for two minor items that needed his attention. We used the kitchen more fully this time around and were able to pack fewer clothes since the laundry facilities are excellent. Highly recommended--and we'll be staying there again in the future for sure.

Wonderful, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great three day stay at this home. The house had lovely furniture and a very well appointed kitchen. The communication with the owner was good prior to our arrival. It was raining when we were in Ashland on this stay so we did not take full advantage of the lovely back porch. Hopefully, next time we can do that.

It is a convenient location. We walked to town and to the theaters.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Maxfield's rental was a charming and lovely stay! It is well appointed with absolutely everything you would need in a house - and more! We loved the location which was close to town and right next door to a market. I would stay there again absolutely. I don't think I have ever seen such a lovely house with fine china and all. Highly recommend!

Great Reunion house!!

  • 5 of 5

Maxfields was the perfect place for our mini reunion. The front and back porches were great for hanging out. We were able to gather in the book room to watch the World Cup, another super space! There were 8 adults, so we could sit around the table in the kitchen. Never even ate out because enough room for all our foods! All the spaces were so great for talking and being together! Easy walk downtown. Great to have the washer and dryer! All beds were comfortable and glad to have had fans as it was a very hot week!! We slept in the trundle bed upstairs, and it was excellent. Small room but plenty of places for our clothing. You will have to crawl across the bed to get to the floor. We got free pickleball lessons at the local park. So fun for all of us!! Would recommend it to all!!

Great location, good for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family (six adults, two small kids) spent a long weekend in Ashland, and found Maxfield's almost perfect for our needs. The location is unbeatable and the house is very pleasant. As noted elsewhere, the trundle beds are a bit of a compromise, but everything else is very comfortable. There's plenty of room for families, the kitchen is large and well stocked, and the laundry facilities were much appreciated.
