We stayed 2 nights with Joe and Sandy on our way from San Francisco to Vancouver, BC. The house and grounds are absolutely lovely and very restful. The food was delicious, but most of all, our hosts were friendly and helpful, making our stay a wonderful experience.

Beautiful historic Inn in a country setting, but just a few miles to Jacksonville--a lovely old town with several restaurant choices, and fun shops. The Willows is an upscale B&B with lots of seating for breakfast, which is served by the owner/chef. We were also treated to an impromptu discussion on Scotch whiskey, a passion of the innkeeper. There is the added bonus of a swimming pool if the weather permits. All in all, a wonderful stay for us in the large Mcclasky room! We'd go back...

Had a lovely stay at The Willows. It is quaint and a lovely B&B! We found it very clean, beautiful, expansive, quiet, peaceful. Loved staying here. The breakfast pastries made in house are a particular treat.

The Willows is a destination bed and breakfast located outside of Central Point, Jacksonville, and Medford. The accommodations are as represented in the beautiful photographs at the hotel web site. We stayed in the Marigold Room with a view of the swimming pool. As we arrived on a hot afternoon we took advantage of the lovely refreshing pool. The room in which we stayed and the common areas in the Mansion are beautifully appointed and maintained. The grounds are lovely and it is easy to see why it is a destination for weddings. The hosts Sandy and Joe were helpful and accommodating providing us with touring and dining tips which we fortunately followed. Touring and dining in the town of Jacksonville, visiting cheese and chocolate shops in Central Point and visiting a specialty cooking store later in the week in Portland were among the things we did. We intend to return and hopefully take advantage of cooking classes they offer at the Willows.

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+

Joe and Sandy were professional and kind. Their B&B has quite an interesting history. Thank you.
This elegant room has sweeping views of the Rogue Valley and antiques, a beautiful Eastlake queen-sized bed.

This room was decorated for a movie set, and it is quite authentic--with modern amenities..
This room was once two rooms reserved for the house maids, one being Maggie. It has a lovely queen four poster bed and higher views to both the East and North of the Valley. The cozy window seat is a perfect perch for you and a favorite book.

The overall decor of the room is black and white toile, and the comfortable king four-poster guarantees a great night's sleep. Views are toward the waterfalls and pond.
