About John Upshur
I was out fishing on the Rogue River one vacation day and noticed the house on the hill and thought it was just beautiful. To my surprise and delight, it turned out to be for sale. So I bought it and planned to move from Los Angeles to this beautiful, luxury wilderness retreat. But life has a way of surprising you when you least expect it and I met a California girl who would not budge; so we got married and stayed in California. I decided it was a shame to let the house sit empty, and I couldn't bear to give it up, so I started renting it out.
John Upshur purchased this House in 2002
Why John Upshur chose Wedderburn
This is house unique in that it has expansive view of the Rogue River where it empties into the Pacific ocean. There are breathtaking views from the expansive glass windows and 1,000 ft. of decking on which to enjoy the view. In addition, the extensive use of glass throughout the house brings the outdoors inside. We are on a private street less than five minutes from Gold Beach Harbor and HWY 101. Is it is secluded but conveniently located to all local attractions. Just check out the photos to see how beautiful the house really is; we think you will agree.
What makes this House unique

Very much enjoyed staying in the Hilltop House and Gold Beach.
The property fulfilled our needs and expectations. Wonderful sunsets! We will consider staying there again.
Thanks so much for your kind review. We thought you were enjoying yourself since we never heard a word to the contrary. I, myself spent the last five days there visiting and fishing with friends and family (we left yesterday), and while there our property manager, Glenda Williams, confirmed as much. Further, she also added that you were wonderful guests and therefore, we would love to have you back as such anytime you can make it. Thanks again.
Sunsets & Rainbows
What an enjoyable place to spend a month. Our time went entirely too quickly and already planning on visiting again. The sunsets are just as awesome to watch as the storms perched high above the Rogue River and the Pacific Ocean. The house has plenty of room to spread out and enjoy quiet as well as visiting family time. We stayed in two different rooms and both of the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with everything and what a view to enjoy while preparing meals. We wanted to enjoy quality time relaxing, hiking, beach combing and fishing and this was an ideal place for all of that.
Thanks very much and we so enjoyed having you as our guests. You're more than welcome to return anytime.
Hilltop house was a mansion with spectacular views!
What a view! Everything was there for us to enjoy an extended stay and the weather was unbelievable. Secluded location, Windows everywhere, attached garage leading into house, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thanks very much. These guests, who stayed for two months, were five stars also.

Hill top House
Loved my stay there! I stayed for 3 months. So glad it is a pet friendly home. Wonderful media room. Love the dining room. View is spectacular. I slept in 2 of the rooms, and both beds were comfortable. I loved the town of Gold Beach. Plenty of restaurants and lots of beach access. I plan on going back for a month in the summer.
Thank you Jennifer, so glad to enjoyed your stay. Our property manager, Glenda Williams, informed us that you couldn't have been a better guest. We'd love to have you anytime your schedule will allow you to return.

beautiful, spacious home with awesome views
The host John was extremely cooperative. I had a difficulty with my dates due to medical situation and John was so accommodating about making the dates work for me. John was also very generous and helpful with a little clutch in the move in time. We really enjoyed the many views and the house was well equipped.
