My husband, being a professional falconer, has always needed to live in rural areas to fly his birds. I wanted to be closer to fun things to do, closer to my family, and yet having peace and quiet. We chose this area as a second home because it filled all these requirements. After retiring from teaching in California, we were free to follow our dreams. This was the ideal area, and having purchased this home gave me the creative outlet to interior decorate as I chose.

CHRISTINE SAVORY purchased this villa in 2011

Why CHRISTINE SAVORY chose Medford

We bought this home as a second home. After doing extensive decorating and renovations, friends urged us to offer it as a vacation rental because of its beauty and location being near to so many vacation activities.

What makes this villa unique

It's so different and inviting. It is in a quiet area, ideal for relaxing, yet minutes from shopping, restaurants, and tourist things to do. Guests are always remarking on the peace and quiet and the many outdoor areas for entertaining and viewing the wildlife, such as the wild turkeys, deer, squirrels, birds, and occasional raccoons. Yet only 5 minutes to Good Bean in Jacksonville to buy gourmet coffee, homemade breakfast pastries, soups, wraps, and deli sandwiches, all located in a quaint historic Jacksonville. in the billiard hall that saw the likes of Wild Bill Hickcock in its hay day.

Want unique entertainment? Ashland is world famous for its Shakespearean theatre presentations, several other outdoor and indoor theaters, including dinner houses with live productions. Talent. (10 minutes away) hosts live productions at the Camelot Theatre. The shops are unique, Lithia Park is a place of extreme beauty, the Restaurants are world class. Jacksonville is famous for its historic downtown, its celebrations, art festivals, and of course, the Britt Festival. Amazing restaurants, such as the unique German restaurant located in the historic school house, aptly named, "Brewhaus Schoolhous". Or dine at famous Jacksonville Inn, which has hosted celebrities, presidents and famous entertainers. Want great hiking experiences? Just 5 miles away, hope on the gentle trail that meanders in the hills in back of the Britt. Or take in amazing views from the top of Table Rock. Crater Lake is a must see, along with the underground caverns at Cave Junction. A two hour drive is not too far to see the eighth wonder of the world, the magnificent Giant Redwood Forest, named after Jedidiah Smith. With all this, What are you waiting for?

Beautiful House and Area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house so we could be conveniently close to Crater Lake. We really enjoyed our stay. While much of Medford is a typical Oregon town, this property is located on the outskirts, and is a step above everything else. The property entrance is located on a beautiful, well-manicured hillside, protected by a large steel gate. We felt very secure at this property. From its high elevation, we overlooked the entire area. Sunrises and sunsets were both very pretty, and there was ample seating all around the house. We saw wild birds all around the house, and wild turkeys roam the property, which was very cool. The area is extremely quiet - all you hear outside is the light breeze, and the wind chimes.

Inside, the house is large, clean, and has very nice kitchen stone countertops. The Master Bed was really comfortable - you just sink right into it.

Christine Savory was really great. She provided wine and snacks, and was a very conscientious host - we really appreciated that.

Overall, our experience was excellent.

ladies' weekend away

  • 5 of 5

My bookclub recently had a retreat here and even though we were just from Medford we felt we were far away on vacation. The house had everything we needed in the kitchen to make yummy food and the large table was fun for eating together and playing games. The house was clean and lots of room. The views were amazing. Very happy with this place.

Quite retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we hoped it would be. We were able to entertain our friends (14) for dinner, the kitchen was perfect to cook in! Large and high end appliances. We used the grill on the deck and the awesome fire pit in the back by the waterfall to roast s'mores for the kiddos! Can't wait to come back, hopefully in Feb. Christine, the owner, was great! Thanks for a great week.
