To the east approximately 26 miles is the Willamette Pass Ski Resort with ski lift, featuring a bounty of downhill slopes for all ages and skill levels, and cross country trails that would rival a cougar's tracks. See (URL HIDDEN) for other interesting and inviting events, features of the area, and activities throughout the year.

THE GROUNDS: Tired Dog Ranch is 18+ acres of diversity (woodland, pasture, meadow w/big fire pit, basketball court, horse shoe pit and corral), orchard, dwellings, lawn & Kitchen and Shower Shelter located right against the National Forest of the Cascade Range with walking and riding trails along the year round creek and into the level and sloped old growth forestland. Each dwelling's rustic elegance combines with convenient amenities and creates a fun mood to set Tired Dog Ranch apart from any other overnight accommodations you will find. Very unique, secluded and relaxing, TDR is nestled outside a quiet community that is yearly gaining speed as an outdoor recreational paradise. This is a farm/forest compound with 30+ free range chickens, farm cat (Kitty Bonkers), farm dogs named Simba (fat old border mix) and Buster (young big Pyrenees) and 5 horses. Due to Tired Dog Ranch's location (neighboring property is National Forest), wildlife abounds and on rare occasion may be so curious or bold to venture onto the 18-acre property (deer, elk, raccoons, skunk, bear, cougar, crow, eagle, hawk, etc.) so take care to protect yourself and others in your group while outdoors to make your stay safe and sound. I am happy to provide tips of the trade for cougar sightings and urge that you keep your kids and pets with you at all times during your stay. the "do's and don'ts" when encountering predator wildlife are posted in all dwellings for your reading pleasure.

Where you’ll be

Westfir, Oregon, United States

Tired Dog Ranch is the last property on LaDuke Rd before it turns to national forest. The South Bank forest service road that continues east from LaDuke Rd. stretches to Larison Rock trail, Greenwaters Park and to Kitson Springs Rd. and Hills Creek reservoir with awesome tributaries and trails to explore. Surrounding the Ranch is untamed second and old growth forestland so I enjoy the quiet and privacy. The Willamette River is nearby with public access 1-1/2 miles to the east, and the moonlit skies at night in the upper meadow are breathtaking. Within the borders of this 18+ acre parcel are trails, a creek, hammocks to laze away the day and critters to engage with. You will get a kick out of the chickens, dog (Simba - border collie), outdoor cat (Orian), 2 Spanish mustang horses (Lydia and Margarita) and one mustang draft (Phileus Maximus Femoris), and mini mule (One Eyed Sarah).

During your stay

I live on the property and greet all guests if I am present at the time they arrive. I am available for questions, assistance and directions, but try to give everyone their space so they can have private enjoyment of the land... even though I'm a blast to be around if not filled with hay, oily hands or chicken poop ;). Please help yourself into the unlocked dwelling and I'll come to introduce myself and answer any questions you may have. Of course, I have my cell phone on my person at all times (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), so call if you like.
