The Martriarch is located in the historic John and Charlotte Pelton House built in 1894. By its size and distinction as an example of Eastlake architecture, the house is regarded as a pivotal building in the Railroad Historic District of Ashland, and is on the National Registry of Historic Places.

So why call it The Matriarch? We chose to honor Charlotte who lived in the house until she passed in 1926, as well as the other women who have cared for this beautiful home over the decades. 

We love this home’s steeply pitched gabled roofs, bay window seating, fenced yard, and sunny porch for afternoon drinks and waving at passers-by.

The property is also home to three additional suites that can be rented at the same time for larger group gatherings.


We take your privacy very seriously and do not intrude on your vacation. However, if you need any assistance, we are here to help and are always available by text.


Just park and walk! There is limited off-street parking, and we recommend walking everywhere. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Oregon Caberet, downtown restaurants, Lithia Park — they’re all just minutes away on foot.
