In the heart of the railroad district, two blocks from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, is a historical property you can call home. The John and Charlotte Pelton House was built in 1894 by Ashland builder W. J. Schmidt. The Peltons were natives of the Rogue Valley area; John Pelton ran a meat business and served as Ashland’s sheriff in 1892. Although the Peltons divorced in 1901, Charlotte lived in the house until her death in 1926. The two-story dwelling exhibits Stick style elements including wood frame construction, steeply pitched gabled roofs, a projecting bay, stickwork paneling, cut outs, sunbursts, and lattice trim as well as Eastlake details.
The Pelton house has recently been remodeled and we invite you to come soothe your soul and bask in our spacious accommodations.
