Welcome to Ashland's finest international boutique hotel. Ashland Creek Inn offers unparalleled luxury and privacy in a park-like setting. Our rooms are true suites with all of the amenities. We are centrally located, only blocks from Ashland's shops, restaurants, and cultural activities.

Step into Ashland Creek Inn, and you feel as if you have been transported deep into the forest. Ashland Creek flows right outside your windows, and giant shade trees cool your private deck. It's not unusual to spot deer, hawks, and other wildlife just feet away. And all of this is only 2 blocks away from downtown Ashland and a 5-minute walk to the theaters.

You will be treated to a multi-course gourmet breakfast from our renowned chef. Our cook uses specialities like fresh berries and local produce to make your meal special. Breakfast is served on our deck overlooking the creek, in our terraced gardens, or in our elegant dining room each morning at 9am.
A brief history of the Ashland Creek Inn

The original building at 70 Water Street was built in the 1880's as one of Ashland's grain mills.  The water wheel was in the pool created by Ashland Creek as it passed by the building (the deck for Taos now occupies this space). Between 1948 and 1984 the building was used by various manufacturing companies including iron works, candle works and "Merrie England Crafts".

In 1986, the now abandoned building was purchased by Robert and Ann Clouse with the intention of creating a film studio.  By 1993, however, it had become the Waterside Inn and in 1995 a restaurant was added.  The building was severely damaged by the 1997 flood and a fire in 1999.

In 2000 the Inn was purchased by Graham Sheldon and his parents, Bing and Carolyn Sheldon.  A new name was born; The Ashland Creek Inn.  Graham quit his job as an executive in the software industry and took up innkeeping.  In 2003, he moved to Ashland from Portland.  In 2008, Graham became the sole owner of the Inn.

Much work has been done on the Inn in the last 11 years.  Marrakech was added in 2001, major renovations in 2002 and 2003.  In 2005 a new floor was added to the southern section of the building and 3 more suites were created.  Our creek-side gardens have been planted with many rare and unusual plants from the Siskiyou Rare Plant Nursery.
