Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My wife works for a public school district and I am semi retired. We have two grown sons but our dogs are still at home. We enjoy fishing, camping, hiking and biking. My family and I discovered Shady Cove when my son enrolled at Southern Oregon University in Ashland. We can't wait to retire here.

Why the Owner Chose Shady Cove:
While traveling in Oregon, we fell in love with Shady Cove after taking a raft trip from the Lost Creek Reservoir down the Rogue River into the heart of town. The beauty of the area is unparalleled. Shady Cove is perfectly situated to enjoy all that Southern Oregon has to offer. The beautiful and unique Crater Lake is a must see adventure to the north. Along the way, visit Union Creek Station, historic Prospect, and breathtaking river views. Nearby lakes offer fishing, swimming, and boating. Rafting adventures start right in town and guided tours can also be arranged in Grants Pass. Multiple fishing shops and guides make Shady Cove a fisherman's destination. A short drive south takes you through Eagle Point with its golf course and the still operating 1890's water powered Butte Creek Mill. Continuing west through the modern city of Medford takes you to historic Jacksonville and the Britt Festival, offering art and music events throughout the season. The nearby Applegate Valley is a lovely drive north to shopping and exploring in Grant's Pass. Just 45 minutes south of Shady Cove is Ashland, home of the world famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Lithia Park.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house sit on a half acre of lawn and pine trees the stretches down to your own private 80 feet of riverfront. We love to sit down by the river and watch the wildlife by day and the stars at night. We often walk into town for breakfast or coffee. Shady Cove restaurants offer great foor, casual atmosphere, and famous Southern Oregon hospitality. There are so many parks within minutes, we never run out of new places to explore. Favorite drives include trips to local wineries and gourmet food shops like the Rogue Valley Creamery and Gary West Meats.
