We booked the cottage on short notice and the communication was outstanding. Jeanette responded immediately, the 1 hour promise on the VRBO page is no exaggeration.

The property is very claean and everything was as described. We spent five day in this beautiful quiet location. The kids had lots of fun with the horses and all the other animals. Collecting chicken eggs was their daily highlight.

Stephen and Jeanette are wonderful hosts. The kids loved them and we enjoyed talking to them a lot. They were always helpful and caring whenever we asked for their assistance.

We can recommend the cottage for anyone who is looking for an quiet country retreat or who just wants to stay in the area and does not want to sta at a hotel.

Thank you so much Stephen and Jeanette for the wonderful stay.

Loved the Farmhouse Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My mom, sister and I stayed at the Farmhouse Cottage for 3 nights and enjoyed the quiet solitude and country setting. The cottage was clean and perfect for the three of us. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was great. Stephen and Jeanette were there in case we had any questions but respected our privacy. They are a super nice couple!

The property is close to Ashland and Medford and not too far from the historical town of Jacksonville.

We recommend the cottage to anyone! It's small but we did not feel it was too small for the three of us.

Thanks Stephen and Jeanette for providing a lovely place for us to stay!!

Peaceful and Modest

  • 3 of 5

Was greeted by Jeannette with a handful of canned Peaches along with some Farm fresh Eggs to welcome my arrival. Very warm, inviting, and kind. The property has plenty of parking on a gravel road/driveway with one covered open garage. Sits next to a large horse grazing area overlooking the distant hills that brings the morning sun to greet your day with 3 Horses, 6 Sheep, some Canadian Geese, 2 dogs and plenty of birds that brings this tiny cottage to life. Clean, 2 bed (one downstairs and one upstairs), up-scaled kitchen, one small bathroom/shower, works for two people. Away from all the hoopla but than again, this is Rogue Valley area in Southern Oregon where lots of Wine Vineyards are located and only a 2 plus hour drive to Crater Lake. Medford is a 5-8 min drive to all the stores, restaurants, that you would need. Our trip was for a Country Fest so the balance of peace from this property was so awesome. Close but far enough to the main roads. Stephen helped us get to a place called Bella Union Restaurant in Jacksonville for dinner. Oh my, excellent food and location amongst the beautiful 10 min drive along all the manicured Vineyards, one we past was Dancin Vineyard. So beautiful, unfortunately they were closed by the time we could visit. Historic town within walking distance to all the quaint stores a must see to visit. If you need a girlie getaway, couples time alone, downtime away from all the hustle and bustle that is set in a very quiet, away from it all place to lay your head, contact Farmhouse Cottage. You will be greeted like family but have the peace and privacy you need. Thank you Jeannette and Stephen!!! Hugs to Reba, Kallie and the furry kids.
