Winter Getaway to the Rogue Valley

November 29, 2013 (Updated December 6, 2016)

Visit the stage of Southern Oregon when you plan a wintercation in Medford and the Rogue Valley, where fine wine, gourmet food and art can be found just around every corner. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Snowmobile at Lake of the Woods
Spend the day in the sunshine, enjoying the crisp chill of fresh white powder when you go snowmobiling at Lake of the Woods Resort. Then shake the cold off with a hot cup of soup in front of the fire and a stay in one of their cozy lake-side cabins, perfectly suited to combat a cold winter night.


Winter Wine Tour 
Wine lovers will enjoy a Wine Hopper Tour through the beautiful Applegate Valley. Sip exquisite varietals of pinot noir, chardonnay and merlot grown and handcrafted by local artisans. After your tour, get away from the crowds and be pampered at the White House Bed & Breakfast. Located in Medford, it’s close to dining, theater and local breweries.

Getaway on the Rogue River
Featuring luxurious guest rooms and an eclectic atmosphere, Inn at the Commons is one of the newest boutique hotels in Medford. Plan on spending a day with a local guide on the Wild & Scenic Rogue River.

Zip Through The Valley
Take in the valley from the trees at Rogue Valley Zip Line. The zip line is open all year and will treat you to spectacular views of the Rogue Valley, if you dare to open your eyes and take it all in. Stay the night at The Rogue Regency Inn and Suites and fuel up in their restaurant, that transforms from casual to fine dining at the blink of an eye. Catch a comedy show or the big game in their sports bar.

Golfing Getaway
Combine an exquisite golf course with an exquisite hotel, and you have a perfect winter golfing getaway. With an average rainfall of 8 inches in the winter months, you can enjoy great weather and even better golfing on any day at Eagle Point Golf Club. Stay the night at the Courtyard by Marriott and wake up to fresh coffee and breakfast goodies every morning.

Ski Mt. Ashland
Experience the Rogue Valley winter at its finest on the summit of Mt. Ashland. There’s something for everyone — bunny hills for the novice skier and heart-pounding slopes for seasoned pros. After you’ve skied to your heart’s content, stay at one of the cozy suites at Callahan’s Lodge, complete with fireplace and hot tub.
