House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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!

This turn of the century classic features period details throughout. It has two levels and sleeps a maximum of eight. There are 3 queen size beds and 2 twins. The twins can be put together and converted into a king.

The lower level, main floor has about 1200 square feet. and includes a parlor and drawing room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and bath plus another half bath and laundry off the kitchen. 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.

The house features a fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, televisions, DVD, CD stereo, WiFi, video and book libraries, laundry, central air conditioning, steam/jet tub/shower and more.

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.

Perfect base of operations for an Ashland stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice and plan to stay again. The house and furnishings provide a true Victorian experience. Everything necesary to cook a meal is provided (if you can resist the local restaurants!). The covered porches with comfortable furniture and ceiling fans are our favorite places to hang out. Offstreet parking is a bonus. We highly recommend staying at the Maxwell House.

Excellent layout for a group of 7 adults and one 13 month old ... All needs were met (comfortable space, proximity to Ashland's shops, parks, & OSF) ... A memorable experience ... We'll be back!!!!

another nice stay at Maxfield's

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Maxfield's in Ashland. The house worked out perfectly for our group of 3 couples. We walked to town and to the plays. Sad to see that Safeway is closed now -- easy shopping access was a plus for us -- but I assume another store will grab that spot soon. Everything in the house is as advertised. Clean and comfortable. You won't go wrong here.

Maxfields may be the best vacation rental we've used.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and contained everything the 6 of us required. It is also an easy walk to town and the theaters.

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.
