About Julie & Jory Kaplan

Jory & Julie 'Jewlz' Kaplan: Jory and I work in the medical field in Redding, CA. We escape to Ashland as often as we can to relax. We enjoy quiet time and travel with our children. We love to walk around Lithia Park and go to the theatre with our family. We cherish older homes and are very excited to own a 1900 Historic Ashland Home and to share it with you.

Julie & Jory Kaplan purchased this house in 2011

Why Julie & Jory Kaplan chose Ashland

We hope you enjoy our lovely Victorian Vacation home! This home has drawn our attention for years, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was called the 'Coleman-Mulit' home, and was built in 1900 by Mr. John Coleman.

The Register states, 'John Coleman purchased this lot from G.W. Gillette in 1899 and soon thereafter the local newspaper noted, 'John Coleman will immediately build on his Church Street lot. He plans a substantial residence and foundations are already underway.' {Ashland Tidings, 22-Jun-1899, 3:1} Coleman, operated a canning plant in Ashland with his brother. He sold this house in 1904. In 1906 Lloyd and Gertrude Mulit purchased the property, which they retained as their residence until 1924. The Coleman-Mulit House is a large two-story vernacular ell with a projecting front gable, accented by a full-height projecting bay. Modest Queen-Anne detailing is evident in the complex form, eave bracketry and the 'pent' roof'

What makes this house unique

Luxurious amenities throughout this home. Advantages of renting an entire home:: Unlike a B&B or hotel, you have an entire Victorian home to yourself! Cook in the full kitchen or walk around the corner to enjoy amazing restaurants and attractions.

Comfortably, cozy, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Owners Julie and Jory have put a lot of time and love into this house right on the edge of everything in Ashland.

This was the second time my husband and I spent time at the Victorian Secret. The living room is cozy. I loved the warm glow of the floor lamps for reading in the evening. While we didn't do much cooking while we were there (Ashland has so many restaurants to choose from) we found the kitchen well stocked with both cooking implements and essentials. (Thanks for having real sugar!)

We slept in the Amethyst Room. It was comfortable, and I loved the light filtering in through the leaves of the chestnut tree. With so many windows and two skylights, the house had a light airy feel to it.

It is located on a fairly quiet street, just two blocks from Lithia Park, and a 5-10 minute (depending on your pace) from OSF. (Shakespeare theaters)

I would highly recommend staying here for a romantic weekend, or an adventure with friends!

Amazing Experience, Better Than Imagined!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time in Ashland thanks to Julie. Not only was their home clean and tastefully decorated it was only a four minute walk to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Her home is truly a treat and I would love to go back next time I'm in Ashland.

Great location - Great amenities - Helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spring garden when we arrived. Wonderfully located - near everything. Well supplied kitchen and bathrooms. Attractive, clean interior. Helpful owners. Nice sunny patio for afternoon drinks. Only demerit is that sofa bed is tired. Highly recommend the Victorian Secret for a comfortable holiday.

Fabulous location, perfect house for our family

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Ashland for the plays for at least 7 years now. This was our first time at the Victorian Secret. It was a perfect location and house for our family. Everything we needed was provided. Even the deer who came daily to the delight of my 6 year old grandson! The height of the beds was a surprise, but once I stepped up on the footstool and crawled in I loved the comfort. We all hope to come back again.

Car: not necessary

The location of this lovely 1900 Victorian home couldn't be better! This cozy home is located at the very tip of the action, and only one short block away from Lithia Park, shopping, and Shakespeare Theaters. Brother's Restaurant is just a few steps away, so waking up to a great breakfast is easy. We hope you enjoy the charm and romance of our Victorian Secret.
