  • Perfect stay

    "Our three day stay at Ida's Vacation Cottage was fantastic. The cottage is perfectly outfitted for either staying in or going out. All kitchen needs were on hand and good local restaurants in Jacksonville are just around the corner. The cottage is quiet and very well maintained. We will be back."

  • Very Peaceful and Beautiful - Inside and Out!

    "My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and it was an amazingly satisfying experience. Located 15 min from Ashland up a winding road with nice vistas going to and from, it is set in a "bowl" that insulates it from sounds and views, providing incredible privacy. No barking dogs, no loud neighbors or traffic - just very peaceful and quiet. The air is also so clean that we slept better and longer than we normally do. As others have already noted, the cottage is outfitted with beautiful furniture and textile art crafted by the hosts and you can also purchase items if you like. It is like staying in an art gallery but having all the conveniences of a well appointed home. There are so many thoughtful touches and we really felt at home, so much that we'd purchase this cottage in a hurry if it ever came on the market (unlikely). Being without TV for 5 days was also refreshing although you have full WiFi connectivity (via satellite, somewhat slower than broadband via cable and also prone to weather outages as is any satellite-based communication or TV system). It was a bit chilly in the evenings and we even had snow on evening (in mid-April!). The hosts provided ample firewood and resupplied us without us asking - very thoughtful. The fireplace heats up the whole house to the point it becomes "toasty" so no issues with keeping it warm. Large kitchen area with all modern tools and very well equipped cabinets, utensil drawers and appliances. We recommend it highly to anybody visiting southern Oregon, and the location is very good for visiting the areas many wineries, Dagoba chocolate factory/shop, very nice restaurants and of course the theaters of Ashland, famous for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Finally, the cottage is located about 30 minutes from Medford/Rogue Valley Airport (code: MFR), with easy flights to Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, among others. We certainly hope to come back one day again!"

  • simple and easy

    "After arriving late into medford this place was an easy and simple stay for the evening. Clean, comfortable and affordable. About 10 min from the airport, easy for 4 adults and a they had a pack and play for our infant. Our only gripe was no coffee and sugar for the morning."

  • Wonderful location...great for two couples!

    "We enjoyed our stay in Ashland, hiking, wine tasting, great restaurants and shopping. The townhouse is very contemporary, beautifully designed and furnished, with exceptionally comfortable furniture, soft atmospheric lighting, and flat screen televisions everywhere. The inter-room music system is wonderful; but we wished we had had better instruction on how to use it. The kitchen was well stocked but some missing wine glasses which meant that four people could often not have the same type of glass. We did not do a lot of cooking (Ashland has so many amazing restaurants), but appreciated kitchen in the morning for breakfast and the rooftop patio for pre-dinner appetizers. For the most part the townhouse was spotless, the bedding was very high quality and would only suggest they clean the area rug in the living room soon. The shower were indeed small and the only real disappointment was that the beautiful tub in the master was out of order and I was specially looking forward to a long soak each evening. The view from the fourth floor outdoor patio is spectacular, just as advertised, and we were able to use in several times when the sun cooperated. This townhouse is private, but do be aware that there is some road noise which is to be expected in the city and the Club across the alley is open until 2am and it was often quite loud for our friends staying in the rear bedroom. The up side is that the townhouse sits right in the heart of downtown Ashland, about a one-minute walk from theaters or Starbuck's coffee, just around the corner from Amuse Restaurant, Alchemy, Smithfield's and Standing Stone Brewery just to name a few."

A trip to Oregon’s wild coast makes a contrast from the mountainous interior; the coast is nicknamed “America’s Wild Rivers Coast.” Visit the Heart of the Dunes or head for Jacksonville, a National Historic Landmark town from the days of the 19th-century Gold Rush. You can still pan for gold here or take a tour down an old gold mine.
