My wife and I stayed here for three nights in March. We took advantage of Cathie's two for one deal. It was a wonderful experience.
First the actual house. It is exactly like the picture on her website. It is a wonderfully restored home built in 1906. The way your accommodations are set up is a little different than a traditional B&B. Your room does not have an attached bathroom. Also the proprietoress stays on the same floor you do. At first I thought this was a bit awkward but Cathie definately gives you your space and privacy. The room is huge with a comfy bed and a flat screen and satellite TV. The blackout curtains are nice if you want to sleep in and gives you a real sense of privacy. The bathroom was remodeled and has a spa quality to it. There is also a second bedroom that is perfect for kids that is available for rent. You can come and go as you please. The location of the house is in east Medford in a well established neighborhood. The big oak trees are picturesque. There is very little traffic on the street at night, it makes for peaceful sleep.
Breakfast is tailored for you each day. If you have any special dietary requirements she can probably accommodate. Each breakfast was wonderful and yummy. Cathie's knowledge of the local area is extremely helpful planning that days excursions. We really enjoy sitting down and chatting with the owners and learning about the house and area. She accommodated us and learned about the house and being a student of architecture I found it fascinating. The coffee is poured from a French press and comes from the Good Bean. I drank at least three cups one morning. It was very relaxing, we will be back.
