Recent Southern Oregon property reviews
"Thank you Tina for making our two day stay just perfect! Your studio was so clean, comfortable, modern and inviting from the moment we stepped in. Everything we needed was at our fingertips, and then some! The quiet neighborhood was close to any sort of shopping, dining or entertainment you could want, and the studio was the perfect launching spot for us to visit Jacksonville and Ashland as well. We wished we could have stayed longer, and can't wait to come back! We'll never stay at a hotel in the Medford area again, as long as one of your studios is available! To anyone reading this review, you will not be disappointed here."Guest: Cheryl Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 22, 2014View listing
"My husband and I spent almost a week at the charming cottage at the Zen Center in Ashland. Peaceful and surrounded by beautiful gardens, views and abundant birdsong we felt that this was the best VRBO site we had used in Ashland. The cottage appears as charming and clean in person as in the pictures displayed. I felt the price was excellent. Mike and the others at the Zen Center were very personable and helpful when we had questions. I really appreciate the site in the Southern part of town as it is less hectic than the downtown bustle but still close to stores, hiking and theatre. It has a very country feel with awesome views of Grizzley Peak and surrounding areas. Thank you so much for a memorable time and looking forward to our quick return!"Guest: Lynn47 Date of Stay: April 2012 Review Submitted: April 27, 2012View listing
"The Riverhouse is very comfortable and well stocked. We have stayed several times now so it almost feels like home. We love the big patio out back for playing board games and bbq, a swimming area and quiet places and all with the river right there."Guest: Kate Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 26, 2014View listing
"Upon our arrival, where we were warmly greeted by the owner who generously had a couple champagne splits waiting for us in the cabin fridge, we were very taken in by the charm of this little cabin right on the river. The food is always delicious, here, and service on the deck was very special and appreciated. To top it all off, we had the opportunity to witness a bald eagle fishing for his breakfast right in front of us, as we enjoyed a peaceful morning on the deck. You'd be hard pressed to find a more relaxing, and beautiful retreat with as tasty dining options as this place, in Southern Oregon."Guest: Kelly E.
