Full size bed in the loft is cozy and quiet. Couch also makes out into a queen size bed, if needed, for additional (up to two) guests with no additional fees. New TV, DVD-HDR and VHS player. Free satellite channels and WIFI. A great selection of books, old and new, promises to enhance your stay with a little extra reading time! Stay in the cabin just for the pure enjoyment of it and the country you are in. We've purposely avoided hanging a clock so your time is yours, and yours alone. We live in an area that has an Occupancy Tax of 8%. Airbnb will charge this to you and you'll be asked to accept. We are registered with Lane County and have been issued a Certificate of Authority to collect the tax. We also have a separate listing on airbnb for our Log Home at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1965343. At $495/per night it's TRULY a retreat and accommodates up to 8 overnight guests.
Since we are on a well, we have recently installed charcoal water filters to the log cabin and to our log home (also listed on Airbnb) to help eliminate a sulphur-like smell, found in our area. We have the water tested and it is perfectly safe for drinking, showering, etc. We provide some bottled water for all our guests.
We hope you enjoy your stay in the little log cabin!
This log cabin is more than a rental.......It's a retreat..... at the end of a country road....memories are waiting for you to enjoy. Walk down to the pond, use the Kayaks awhile, then leisurely enjoy the open grassy areas. 2.5 hours from Sisters, 1 hour from the coast (Florence), 15 minutes to Eugene and if you're interested in a Duck game, we're just 24 min. to the UO Campus. If wine tasting interests you, this little log cabin is just 15-20 minutes away from surrounding vineyards and wine tasting rooms. See directions and local venues listed under "Guidebook" at the top of the screen. Superb dining also available at King Estate Winery. June 26th - July 13th Oregon Bach Festival at the Hult Center (20 minutes away). There is also a great 2 mile walk around Peaceful Valley that promises to start your day off on the right foot! A great little stream and waterfall complement this beautiful property and are right outside your cabin door. Property is landscaped and has several nature walks to choose from. Fire pit outside your cabin door, under the stars, makes for a wonderful destination in the evening to roast marshmallows or sip on a glass if your favorite wine.

AT&T Cellphone coverage works outside in front yard, otherwise WIFI works well inside.
Interaction with Guests
We live on the property, in the log home across the way, however knowing that a little cabin is such a desirable retreat for a get-away, we absolutely respect our guests' privacy. Check-in and Check-out times can be adjusted. Let us know what will work best for you and we will be happy to see if we can accommodate your wishes. Standard check out time is 11:00 am and check in time is 3:00 pm unless other arrangements have been made. We have a home nearby so if there is anything more you need - just let us know! We will respect your privacy and yet will try to do everything we can to make your stay a "Notch Above the Rest"! :) Spiral staircase may be a challenge for some and not for others.
Our neighborhood consists of a few homes and barns, dotted here and there, along our lazy, country road. Since it is not a through street, and we are at the very end of the road, we get very little traffic! A nice walk really should be on your list of things to do. The setting is picturesque and peaceful, so remember to bring your camera. Early risers see deer, squirrels, raccoon, and birds. They are fed and protected here. We take pride in cultivating organic methods of grounds-keeping and sustainability for all wildlife, now and for years to come.
If you bicycle....bring yours! We're only 6 miles from W 11th Ave. and 8 miles from Chambers Street. The Lorane Valley is a popular route for bicycle and unicycle enthusiasts and the scenery is second to none. You'll enjoy the back roads and won't want to miss touring the wineries while you're here.
Other Things to Note
You'll have a Weber barbecue (briquettes and lighter fluid included) on your private deck to use. So bring your favorite food, bottle of wine or beer, and plan to spend some time relaxing, or venture down by the pond for an experience you won't soon forget! You will have your own fire pit for a campfire, located just across from the front of the cabin (some wood provided). Please note: The fire pit that is located behind our house and at the top of the rocked steps leading up from the pond is not included. Please see map on the back of the little log cabin door for areas that are shaded in grey and not included in your stay.
Please remove shoes. Please allow your pet to come inside with you! Not only do we allow pets, but we love them. We have two outside dogs so we require that your pet be well socialized with both people and other pets. Please be aware that there is wildlife in our area that may run through the yard from time to time.
No smoking inside cabin. Please be careful to remove all cigarette waste to garbage receptacles, as the ground cover is hemlock bark and is flammable. Please ask for our complete Guest Policy document when booking. We will be happy to send it to you. We have a copy in the cabin as well and ask all our guests to read and respect our written policy as it pertains to our property.
We are not on city water. Since we are on a well we have our water tested professionally for safety. We have a charcoal filtration system in place for taste and smell but in some dryer months there may be a sulfur odor. We also have a PUR water-filter pitcher in the refrigerator for fresh tasting water and we provide some bottled water as well..
Warm and cozy, this cabin is the perfect get-away. Selection of books, DVDs, satellite TV, and WIFI make this a comfy yet practical destination after touring the wine country or going to a Duck Football game.
