Pilot Rock

The history of Pilot Rock in the Ashland area is remarkable. The rock is a well-known visitor attraction and an iconic landmark symbolizing Oregon’s natural beauty. It was discovered by pioneer explorers in 1846 and named due to its distinct shape, similar to a steamship pilot wheelhouse. 

Pilot Rock is naturally beautiful because of the surrounding landscape, which includes lush green forests, sprawling meadows, and craggy mountains that can be seen for miles. There are also towering pines around the majestic structure, and a display of colorful wildflowers in the summer adds to the picturesque view. Nature enthusiasts flock to Southern Oregon to escape their daily lives and experience something serene. 

After exploring this stunning landscape, rest at our Ashland hotel, the Stratford Inn. Here you can relax in one of our 8 suite rooms equipped with fine linens, comfortable beds, a flat-screen TV, and more. Get in touch with us to learn more.

Indoor pool/sauna comes with toys for your kids. Very close to downtown but the safeway is right across the street so it makes it easy to get food and beverages.

This is a very convenient location with parking. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with refrigerator and microwave. It was mostly clean (bathtub walls needed some attention) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Their grab-and-go breakfast was better than most. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
