An Oasis

4.6 on August 11, 2016

I spent one night at the Willows during one of Southern Oregons' hot spells with temps in the 100s'. The Willows is an oasis of trees and cool during that time. Breakfast on the patio was a treat and the food excellent as was the service. It's a lovely property and conveniently located to Medford and Jacksonville.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at The Willows. The grounds are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. The home is very beautifully furnished and Sandy was very welcoming. We loved meeting and talking with her and the breakfast was certainly delicious and gourmet. We would definitely consider staying here again. This would be a beautiful place to hold a special event or wedding.


Fabulous getaway

Sandy and Joe are fabulous. We were very lucky to be there in the off-season, and had them all to ourselves. Wonderful food, atmosphere and most of all conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.


Lovely Inn

My husband and I have traveled the world and stayed in more lovely places than we can remember, and we love The Willows. We spent a perfect overnight there and were enchanted by the beautiful old house and the lovely grounds. We spent the night in the Bora Da room, with a comfy king bed and full bathroom. Sandy and Joe were great hosts, very hospitable and friendly, and Sandy cooked an amazing breakfast for us. This is a gem not be missed in southern Oregon!


Great stay

A step back in time.

Posted Aug 28, 2015 We felt like we had been transported back in time to when things were not as hectic and living was elegant. Great service, excellent gourmet breakfast, all set in a lovely home built at the turn of the twentieth century. The surrounding grounds are extensive and very well kept. If you didn't know it you would think you were the only home within miles. We are already planning our next trip and extending our stay.

Joe and Sandy always makes us feel welcome and comfortable in our stay at the Willows. Any time we are in the Central Point area we stay at the Willows because of the rooms and Sandy's excellent breakfast. See you when we come by next time. Ted and Sandy Yarnes


Lovely Romantic Getaway, great value

4.6 on August 19, 2015

My spouse and I stayed two nights at The Willows and really enjoyed the house, scenery, and food. Our room was Maggie's attic and it was spacious and had a lovely window nook for reading. Despite the very hot weather the AC and pool were nice and cold! My one note for guests is that the room only has a tub with a hand held shower, but no curtain. We found this awkward and recommend the owner install a tub curtain and shower head. We were not especially fond of the dogs, which are underfoot, though clearly other guests loved them. Considering we could have spent the same amount for a generic room we thought this was an exceptional value and beautiful rooms.

Signature Dish

Breakfast Surprises Await You!
Our European-trained chef uses only locally sourced, fresh ingredients and seasonal selections. Consequently, Willows breakfasts are always a delicious surprize at the inn! In the Fall, it could be fresh-picked Oregon apples, sauteed in agave and butter and glazed to perfection, atop a light and airy Dutch baby; in the Spring, it might be baby spinach greens topped with a smoked salmon, chive & egg timbale-smooth and perfectly seasoned, with some roasted Oregon baby reds; in the Winter, it could be some delicious spiced pumpkin flapjacks, with a plum jam sauce from a Willows tree, and freshly whipped cream; in the summer we might have some melt-in-your-mouth 49er peach beignets, lightly dusted with powdered sugar--each of the 3-course breakfasts is a unique mouth-watering dish, just awaiting the sensation it will create on your sophisticated palate!
