The Willows, now an Orchard Mansion Bed and Breakfast Resort, is one of 75 properties in the Rogue Valley listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Known as the Madden–McCaskey House, the home comes with a rich and varied history. The original owners, Frank H. and Winifred Madden of Chicago arrived in the Rogue Valley during the first of the “orchard booms” in southern Oregon around 1908. Rumor has it that some of the Madden’s wealth came from the Alaskan Gold Rush, but this has not been substantiated.
The Maddens quickly acquired two of the finest orchard tracts in the valley, which soon become known as the Madden Ranch. The Willows is an upscale Bed and Breakfast Resort offering visitors and guests the opportunity to experience gracious 21st century accommodations in an authentic Rogue Valley Orchard Mansion.
