Property description

From the cozy indoor fireplace or outdoor hot tub, relax in this private sanctuary while enjoying the magnificent views of the Rogue River, dramatic gardens with 550 feet of river frontage, not to mention a Japanese tea house, gazebo and secluded safari camp in the adjoining gardens. The main house has 2500 square feet of professionally-designed interiors, a private dock, with a 1000 square-foot studio and 2500 square feet of decking.

This estate-like setting has three separate bedrooms in the main house and detached studio with its own deck, outdoor grill, dining table, and chairs. Walls of glass with magnificent river views surround the spacious main-living room, atrium dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, and more rooms. A lower level with a private entrance has its own bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, and sitting room. Doors open directly from all levels to the adjoining decks for day and night-time enjoyment; luxurious gardens and walkways surround the residences with a two-car garage and ample off-street parking.

Enclosed in seclusion with elegant interiors and surrounded by beauty, you are but minutes from wineries and fine restaurants. Or spend your time by bird watching (osprey and an occasional eagle to Red-tailed Hawks, swallows, and many more), fishing for trout or salmon, strolling through the extensive property, or just barbequing with dining on the decks. You will become entranced in the serenity of this one-of-a-kind experience.

Conveniently located one mile from I-5, historic Jacksonville, its Britt Festival, Ashland (with its Oregon Shakespeare Festival), and a variety of different activities are within your easy drive.

VRBO Bear relaxing in the beautiful living room 08/22/2005

VRBO Bear stayed here:


This bear found a delightful retreat in Southern Oregon. This beautiful home is conveniently located off Interstate 5, near Gold Hill. Here you’ll find plenty of room for a little bear like me to roam in a very peaceful setting. Whether you are grilling or enjoying the hot tub on the multi-level deck, you will love this serene oasis that over looks the Rogue River, complete with it’s own private dock.

This elegantly decorated hideaway has every modern convenience. It has a Jen-Air kitchen, cable TV, internet access, washer and dryer, fireplace and exceptional décor. There is room enough for up to 8 guests. There are 2 bedrooms in the main floor, a third bedroom is located downstairs with a private entrance. It also has a detached studio that provides a luxurious private living area next to your private two car garage..

This secluded refuge is just 15 minutes from Medford or Grants Pass, and just minutes away from shopping and many fine restaurants. You can also go hiking, biking, and horseback riding, or boating in this beautiful area. You’ll know you have definitely struck "gold" in Gold Hill when you visit this VRBO property.

Signed, VRBO Bear

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Dennis and Judy purchased the river house in 2001 and have transformed the acreage into beautiful gardens (English and Japanese) with a gazebo, safari camp, Japanese tea house, walkways, and an estate-like setting. Dennis is a retired attorney, professor, and writer with 20 books published. Judy retired after 32 years working for the USPS. We live only 30 minutes away that allows us to maintain the properties and gardens plus enjoying the river’s serenity. We take pleasure in sharing its beauty and ambiance with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Gold Hill, OR, USA:
Having lived in Ashland for eight years before, we knew we wanted a Rogue River frontage property. This particular one was located far away from the Savage Rapids and Gold Ray dams that eventually were to be removed--their final removal didn't affect this location at all. Located outside of Gold Hill and towards Rogue River, this property offered the irrigation, acreage, and river frontage--plus the incredible structures that we desired. This is a very unique property, continually maintained and kept in a pristine condition.
