The house was in a beautiful location and we loved sitting on the outdoor deck.
Great place! 6 adults stayed here for a long weekend and it suited our needs perfectly. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. It felt like a "home" with the quilts on the walls also. Plenty of showers and hot water for everyone. Some of us could smell the sulfur while showering, some couldn't. We certainly didn't smell it on ourselves afterwards. The place had plenty of drinking water provided. The setting is very relaxing. We heard coyotes one night, cows another. Will definitely stay here again.
Loved the solitude, privacy, views and comfort! We expected the water smell to be horrible then it turned out not to be so bad.
Wild Rogue Relay house
My Wild Rogue Relay team stayed here the night here before our event. It was a quick drive to the starting line. Then, after the first part of the relay we went back to the house to rest before the next part. It was a perfect location for that stopover!
We had a group of 9 to accommodate, and Ruch Refuge was perfect! Beautiful country setting, yet just about 10 minutes to the touristy little town of Jacksonville. The location and accommodations were great! The "bunk house" sleeps 7 (king/en-suite)(full/single bunk)(single/single bunk) with two full bathrooms. The main house is a studio with queen bed and full bath (showers only in all 3 bathrooms). There is a "bath house" for soaking in mineral water, but we didn't use that.
The reason for only 4 stars are: 1) The smell of the water. SO bad! I had read a review where it stated they had done something to fix the water, but I can't imagine how bad it was before if that's the case. After the smell from my husband's shower, I decided to not shower the entire time we were there. You don't want to wash your face or brush your teeth in that water. I totally want to go back because it was so beautiful and peaceful, but not until the water situation is fixed for good and all. 2) It would've been nice if they had stacked firewood in the box on the porch for us. We found wood, but it was wet from being out in the yard.
Convenient, quiet, and comfortable
This is a very comfortable house in a super location. It was very quiet, with great access to local hiking, rivers, lakes, and towns. We had a great dinner at Schoolhaus Brewhaus in Jacksonville, a lovely hike along the Applegate river, and did some rafting on the Rogue. Awesome park down the road right on the river, no crowds! Relaxing on the recliners on the breezeway with the lovely view made for a great day. The main house stayed nice and cool during the day, and there were plenty of fans and window A/C units in the second unit, which were needed! Plenty of hot water and good pressure in the showers. Main drawback was that the water in the showers had that mineral smell, which we're not used to. Deanna was very responsive and pleasant to deal with.
