Jacksonville & Medford, OR {part II}

Bybee Historic InnWhile we were in Jacksonville and Medford, we stayed at the cutest Bed and Breakfast called Bybee Historic Inn. When we pulled up, I thought it was the most darling place to stay. Once we got inside, we got the warmest welcome too 🙂 These ladies who run this certainly know how to make you feel like family 🙂

Bybee Historic Inn 2We had fun exploring the grounds before we headed out for dinner. I thought this little area was cute!

portersFor dinner, we headed to a restaurant in Medford called Porters. This place was once a train station! When you walk around the restaurant, you can see the gorgeous details in the radiators, the floors and the moldings. I like architecture sometimes.

Porters 4We got seated in a booth and the cool thing is there were curtains you could close for privacy! Totally like on a train. This little one was a little unruly.

Porters 3She eventually got sick of coloring and moved onto doing my hair. Funny girl!

photo copy 3I didn’t think to take any pictures of our meal because I was starving, but this empty plate says it all! I had the beef tips and peppercorn gravy with a baked potato and green beans. It was so beyond incredible! I was soooooo full.

Bybee Historic Inn 1The next morning, we were treated to breakfast on the porch at the B&B. Again, we were starving, so not a whole lot of photos here, but we were treated to the most divine havarti baked eggs! I’m working on perfecting the recipe. Seriously. We also had some roasted potatoes and these peach and ginger scones with hazelnut cream! Totally gourmet and incredibly divine!!

Bybee Historic Inn 3We also maybe may have eaten a few of these gorgeous waffles too.

funny girl 1This little one loved all the edible flowers on all her food!!

funny girl 2Ahh yes. Most of the time we were pretending this was a tea party. Fancy daddy.

funny girlShe is a ham 94% of the time. She also loved those waffles.

After our little shopping adventure, we found a picnic table between Lillie Belle Farms and Rogue Creamery to eat. We stopped by each place to sample chocolates, cheeses and other yummy goodness before continuing onto our next stop.

butte creek mill 3Before leaving Medford, we made one last stop at Butte Creek Mill, the only active water generated flour mill west of the Mississippi. We got a tour of the whole facility and got to see that water power in action! It was so cool to watch!

butte creek millThe water system that makes everything work is in the basement and then upstairs on the main level is where all the flours and grains would be ground, weighed and packaged.

pensiveAs you can see, my little baker was quite interested. All very cool stuff!

After this, we hit the road again and headed to our next stop…our favorite place of the trip! And incase you missed our last stop, here it is:
