“Life Immitating and Enhancing Art”
Reviewed 19 August 2010

If the sublime should have limits, they are not here. If perfection in hotel living has eluded you, it will evade you no more once you come here. Elan has three perfectly appointed suites with art and accouterments that bring a sense of well being as soon as you enter. Beautiful, magnificent, unbelievable are the terms that come to mind, followed by the question: How do they do this for only $250 a night in the high season? Who ever heard of a small B&B looking place with giant one bedroom apartments where you park within the electric door garage, where the ceiling sound system in both the living and bedrooms plays the music from your smartphone or computer, where the stainless steel and granite kitchen dares you to open the bottles of wine marked at half what a restaurant would charge you? The high speed internet is fast, the room electronics in each room are sleek, the natural light pours through the towering trees and illuminates the oil paintings and metal sculptures. Who is this welcoming couple that gives you the $10 per day charge card for the cafe across the street in honor of your privacy and your choice to buy what you want, when you want it for breakfast or lunch or dinner? How did they get this property outside the wooded entrance of the Britt Festival, where you hear George Winston or Al Stewart in the pre-performance rehearsal gently blowing in the breeze, and the old gold town main street to stroll down in the evening? How can romance not result from this? It is life doing a brilliant imitation of art, and it fills you with self esteem that you, yes you, found this place and caused you and your loved ones to be enjoying it.

This is the only place I have found in Jacksonville, or even all of southern Oregon that offered large beautiful modern suites. I wanted elegant, clean and quiet and that is just what I got.
Elan is tucked away in the heart of Jacksonville with amazing food at every turn (Gogi's, The Nunan House, & McCully House). Great wine tasting just a few miles up the road in the Applegate valley, and a Britt show that evening made the weekend just perfect. Elan was just a few steps from the Britt Gardens where we heard some amazing music under the stars. Then we went back to our suite and sat on our private deck with a bottle of wine from Wooldridge Creek Vineyard relaxed.
Thank you Cherie for making our stay so special!

With only three suites, you will want to assure a space in this charming place by reserving early as Cherie (the hostess) has thought of all the little details that will make your stay delightful.

The suites are immaculate and modern. An nice music system (bring a CD or two), comfortable robes, a unique decor including original paintings and multiple candles located thoughout, all contribute to creating a most relaxiing environment.

Enjoy a glass of wine on your balcony and read about the interesting history of Jacksonville or get out and hike one of the many trails in the area.

Regardless of the reason for your trip to the Jacksonville/Ashland/Medford area, you should consider treating yourself to a stay at the Elan Suites.
