I recently had the opportunity to stay at Lithia Springs Resort. This is not the same as the Jackson Well Springs next door...I know several people have gotten lost and headed next door.
I was curious about the mineral water. I had been exploring the possibility of "alkalizing" my body and received information from an accquaintance that these mineral waters contained not only alkaline, but lithium. Hey I'm all for trying to get rid of the winter dulldrums by soaking in lithium and alkaline to boot! I again don't know alot about it but am dabbling only....
I was also told this was/is a favorite bathing spot for the Native Americans (there is an article in the lobby or ask Duane or one of his staff..he loves to talk about his property)
The staff was so accommodating and pleasant, as was Chester the plump icon cat. They advised me there was afternoon tea which includes these wonderful little scones and homemade lemon curd!....Breakfast is a minimal fee from $6.00 (I had the eggs benedict...wonderful) and also an Oregon wine tasting for $4.00 or you may purchase a glass for $5.00.
I strolled through their winter gardens..(and it is even more beautiful in the spring - fall months)....to my room. It was very very clean, comfortable...and oh the large jacquzzi bathtub....yum. Could hardly wait. It felt so good to just relax ...enjoy a glass of wine....listen to nice soothing music from the DVD player...
The bed was so comfortable.
I had a wonderful experience, soaked in the waters. It was just heavenly.
I didn't see much of Chester except for breakfast....I think he is so sought after by adults and kids alike....that he just tolerates us...let's us pet and uh and ahhh over him...and then he must head off to soak his weary bones in the mineral waters perhaps?
I would definitely recommend this property. The drive to Ashland is a short 1 1/2 miles perhaps?....
