My boyfriend and I stayed two nights in the McCaskey room and it was everything and more than we had expected! The room was gorgeous, and Sandy made our stay very enjoyable. Her and her husband were very nice and welcoming, and had great recommendations on where to eat, and what vineyards to visit. The next time visit Southern Oregon, we will be staying here!!!

Outstanding B&B! We were fortunate to have been the only guests for our two night stay. The rooms are perfectly decorated to meet the antiquated design of the home, views from every room were beautiful. The breakfasts were amazing & delicious, as they were prepared by the wife, who is a trained chef and she has a fabulous cooking school on the property as well. The property is pristine and well manicured. The owners are very attentive and clearly are passionate about The Willows. We are planning our next stay for the Spring. Plenty to see and do for outdoor activities!!!

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at The Willows. Sandy is an AMAZING chef, preparing wonderful breakfasts each morning. She and Joe were also very helpful in suggesting the best bicycling areas, their favorite restaurants, and local hidden gems like "The Creamery" for gourmet cheeses like their Blue Cheese and Cheddars. We highly recommend this wonderful Inn, and will likely return.

We booked the Willows for our wedding this Summer and made reservations to spend the night of our wedding at the bed and breakfast. The entire event was magnificent and spending the night there topped it all off! The room was beautiful and absolutely perfect. Waking up in that setting certainly felt like a dream.... Breakfast was impeccable and I can't really say enough about the whole experience. We will be spending our anniversary there next year and I can hardly wait! Thank you for making our wedding dreams come true... The Willows is a 10+

Everything at the Willows exemplifies the very reason for staying at a B&B, from the Culinary Institute of America trained chef to the quiet well maintained home and gardens, the Willows is just what a quality B&B should be. The hosts and staff were very kind and pleasant. They love the region they live in, have a deep knowleadge of it's hidden treasures, and willingly share those secret treasures with their guests. Every suggested activity or restaurant we tried was wonderful and spot on. The McCaskey Room we stayed in was very comfortable with views of the surrounding countryside from the large 2nd floor deck. Our breakfast featured several in season items grown on the property! From the rooms, to the grounds to the sitting and dinning rooms the Willows is a lovely escape my wife and I will be keeping on our must-do-again list of B&Bs.

My husband and I stayed at The Willows Inn over July 4 week-end, for four nights. We had stayed there about a year ago as well, and were excited to return. This time we stayed in the Bora Da room. It was an extraordinarily hot week-end, but the air conditioning in the room kept it nice and cool. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was nice and quiet. Our hostess, Sandy, was very friendly, and gave us wonderful tips on where to visit and to eat. She is a chef, and runs a cooking school in the carriage house, so of course the breakfasts were delicious! We watched the fireworks from the back yard, with their sweet kitty The General alternating between our laps. It was a wonderful stay, and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Outsganding!

In late November, as a special treat for my 10 year old granddaughter, we spent the night in the Madden Room. As a person with severe back problems, I can guarantee the outstanding comfort of the bed. My granddaughter loved the old brass bath tub, and we both loved the individual soufflés we were served for breakfast.

My husband and I recently returned from a three night stay at The Willows during our first trip to Oregon, and we couldn't have been more impressed by the welcome that met us, the friends we found in Sandy and Joe, and the happiness we experienced during our entire stay. From the gorgeous room to the gourmet breakfasts, they exceeded everything I had imagined of the stay. We felt as though we were visiting old friends, who graciously offered dozens of sites to visit complete with hand drawn maps, engaging conversation, constant generosity, and saw to every aspect of our stay with affable hospitality. As animal lovers, we also enjoyed their playful outdoor kitties and sweet dog, making us feel even more at home. The area surrounding the inn and the grounds are so tranquil, and nearby Jacksonville so quaintly historic, we found ourselves imagining we were in the past, when Edwardian ladies leisurely strolled across the manicured lawns, carriages and their horses could be heard coming up the tree lined drive, and welcoming hosts stood eager and smiling to greet their fortunate guests, just as they do now. We very much look forward to our next visit, and will remember The Willows fondly until that time~ Amy and David
