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 Siskiyou-Hargadine Historic District

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 a mile and a half along Lithia Creek. The park was designed by the same person that designed Golden Gate Park. 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 in the area.

Fabulous Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family took Maxfield’s for a week. We were a party of 6. The house is charming and even nicer than the photos show.

The two upstairs bedrooms share one bathroom and the downstairs master bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a back parlour that has the MOST comfortable sofabed, and heavy drapes that close it off from the front parlour very effectively. There is an additional bathroom/laundry off the kitchen so the bathrooms are not crowded. The house is very well supplied, with kitchen necessities, basic pantry items, toiletries and very good quality linens. We were provided 5 sets of keys. The upstairs bedroom makes up as a king or twins to add some flexibility. There is a printed instruction sheet for the house. Read it completely upon arrival. We didn’t and had to ask for help with the heat because we didn’t follow the (simple) instructions.

When we were all hanging out it was comfortable for 8 guests to lounge around. We had friends in town and extra people were no problem when they came over to visit.

The TV in the back parlor made it so the news hounds could watch Rachel while the rest of us were in the front parlour chatting comfortably.

It was very cold the week we visited and the house stayed warm and comfortable.

There are 2 verandahs that were nice when it warmed up at the end of the week. Parking in the back was easy.

Maxfield’s is located on Siskiyou Blvd, despite this it was quiet and peaceful. The local Safeway just a few doors down. The old cemetery is located directly behind the house and was nice to walk in and explore. The stroll to the theatres was easy and quick, between 10 and 15 minutes.

This is a lovely older Edwardian home, and there are a few eccentricities. The stairs are creaky so nocturnal trips to the kitchen are a bit noisy. Locks on the front door and the back door deadbolt are stiff. We used the knob lock on the back door almost exclusively and it worked fine. The master bath has a high-speed shower/tub/sauna/jacuzzi unit that is a challenging. Don’t get in until you have the temp adjusted. The water is very hot and you do not want to adjust the water while you are in the tub.

We rebooted the wi-fi once when it was being jinky, but it ran smoothly and had enough bandwidth for everyone to use it without bogging down.

We stayed for 7 nights, were completely comfortable and plan on staying here again. We were a party of 6 but you could very comfortably sleep 8.

Maxfield’s is just lovely!

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Nice house, clean, convenient to Safeway for supplies(1 minute walk) and downtown (4-5 minutes). Adequate parking in alley at rear. No real complaints, except one has to be careful to avoid breaking one of innumerable ceramic knickknacks.

Had a great time, place worked out for everyone, easy walk to town

  • 5 of 5

Had a family thanksgiving here and had a great time. With all the Christmas/black friday/Thanksgiving activities happening downtown we avoided the parking and traffic and walked to town each day. Easy walk. Also very close to Safeway so we were able to quickly walk there and get what we needed (or forgot). Bedroom, Parlor, drawing room and kitchen layout worked for all (4 adults and 2 children).

Outstanding place and terrific location - Owner was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful victorian within easy walking distance of downtown Ashland and a Safeway is literally about 100 yards up the street. The house has character, many period correct pieces (from what I can tell).... so much charm and very comfortable. We were here for a wedding and did breakfast at the house and one dinner. Loved the area, great visit... I highly recommend this place and will stay here whenever I visit.

Best yet!

  • 4 of 5

We travel to Ashland every year. It’s a challenge to find accommodations for three couples that is close in. Maxfields was the best home rental to date! Well appointed, nicely laid out, close enough to walk to theater every night. Cozy but not crowded, on a busy street but quiet, conveniently located. Master suite downstairs, shared bath for 2 bedrooms upstairs. Lots of room gather together in kitchen, dining, front and back porch, living room and parlor.

The Maxfield house is a sweet Victorian with many great features. Three bedrooms plus a pull out sofa. Plenty of room for privacy and space for getting together also. We always try to stay there when in Ashland.
