Mountain House
1148 Old Siskiyou Highway
Built 1852

Mountain House, which is the oldest building in southern Oregon, was built in 1852 as a inn to serve gold miners. Over the years, it provided hospitality to adventurous souls traveling first by wagon train, then by horse-drawn stage coach, then by steam locomotive.

In 1887, the inn was converted into a private residence and remained in the same family for over a century.

Following a beautiful renovation, Ashland Mountain House is once again serving travelers as a Bed and Breakfast Inn. The Ashland Mountain House website has an excellent history of the property.
