Bring your bicycles or jogging shoes; we are nestled in the south west corner of Medford, where Mediterranean-like hills undulate through pear orchards and vineyards. You can ride all day on gorgeous country roads. We are also near the Bear Creek Greenway. Dutch Bros and a neighborhood convenience store are catty-cross our street. You can drive anywhere in Medford in 20 minutes or less from Middleford Cottage and downtown is fewer than five minutes away.
We are three miles from Jacksonville, a quaint town listed on the National Historic Registry. Dine at Jacksonville Inn, Bella Union, Las Palmas or Deja Vu Bistro. Their patios are particularly lovely in warmer weather.
The city of Ashland is also nearby (13 miles), with artisan shops, Lithia Park (must see), and Tony award-winning theater. The Pioneer/Dark Hollow route from Middleford Cottage to Ashland is gorgeous, passing through farmlands, vineyards, and forests.
Medford boasts a variety of golf courses, with a local favorite public course within walking/touring distance from Middleford Cottage.
Medford is very easy to drive around and we are less than five minutes from I-5 exit #27.
Perhaps best of all, we are surrounded by wilderness paradise, with rivers, lakes, and hiking/biking/cross-country-ski trails too numerous to list here.
For a day trip to the beach, Brookings is a 2 1/2 hour drive, partially through exquisite redwood forests.
Crater Lake is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Please see it if at all possible. We recommend the boat tour.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Surrounded by mountains in every direction, we find Southern Oregon a natural paradise. We ski Mt Ashland, float the Rogue, Applegate, and Illinois rivers, hike dozens of nearby trails, and bicycle all over the valley. Our favorite ride is the Pioneer/Dark Hollow loop just south of our home. We also see live shows at Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Ashland Cabaret Theater, The Camelot Theater, and The Ginger Rogers Collier Theater. At home we have a small flock of free-ranging chicken-pets. We welcome you to southern Oregon and to Middleford Cottage.
Why the Owner Chose Medford, OR, USA:
Our guests say 'Ahhhhh' when they arrive at Middleford cottage. Entry into the cottage is very easy. Pull into the driveway, park in your VIP space on the cement pad with the basketball hoop, pass through one gate and walk a few paved steps to your private porch and cottage. Everything welcomes you, from serene gardens with ancient sycamores and cedars, to softly clucking hens. You will find luxurious surprises in every room, such as plush bamboo/Turkish cotton blend towels, high thread-count sheets, leather furnishings, and fine wool rugs.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
To travel from Middleford Cottage to Ashland, we recommend a scenic route through farmlands, vineyards, and gently rolling hills. Head south on Columbus Avenue and continue through the 4-way intersection at South Stage Road. At the T intersection, turn either left onto Carpenter Hill Road or right onto Dark Hollow Road. From Carpenter Hill, turn right onto Pioneer Road. From either road, continue south. The roads will meet again at a Dark Hollow/Pioneer (T) intersection. Continue east, through a 4-way stop (on Pioneer Road), until the next T intersection. Turn right to head south on Colver Creek Road, which will intersect with Highway 99 in the small town Talent. Heading south on Highway 99 will bring you into the heart of Ashland. Continuing onto Carpenter Hill is also lovely, and will intersect with Colver Creek to continue south-east to Ashland. Take your time, and just drive in a south-easterly way. You might hit a dead-end lane but all of these roads are beautiful and you won't get lost or taken far from your intended path. Most of these country roads meet up at Colver Creek Road, which will intersect with Highway 99. These roads also make lovely routes for cyclists who enjoy hills, and motorcyclists. Columbus/Carpenter Hill/Pioneer/Colver Creek into Ashland takes less than 30 minutes, so this route doesn't add significantly more time than driving I 5. Enjoy!
