Quiet Retreat at Myrtle Glen Farm

Other - Private room · Middle Creek Rd, Myrtle Point, OR 97458, United States

The Space

Our farm is tucked into a beautiful, isolated, north-south valley on the western slope of the coast range of southern Oregon, with a clear and clean river named Middle Creek running through. Lush pasture, a 100 year old conifer forest, barns, and a home surrounded by productive and established orchard, flower beds and veggie gardens, the land sits a mile or so below a narrows in the canyon of blue-green mountains that face the sea. As a place of serenity and lush beauty close to nature, this is the ideal retreat or inspirational getaway far from the hustle and bustle of big cities and busy highways.
Our two available bedrooms sit in the west wing of our craftsman/lodge style farmhouse. They are available separately or together and this listing is for the larger room with a queen size bed. The other room (with a futon bed) can be booked via the other listing for this location. There is a tile bathroom with a sink and toilet in between the two bedrooms, and a shared deck directly outside. The underwater themed tile master bathroom contains a shower and tub, and an outdoor hot tub is situated on the northern side of the house. The property also houses a studio building with a mirrored dance/work-out/yoga studio on the upper level that is available for Air Bn'B guests to use.
Our living room and kitchen are shared spaces, available for your use at any time. As we host work-traders through the WWOOF organization from Spring to Autumn, we have breakfast together in the morning after the goats have been milked and the chickens have been fed. You are welcome to join us for this meal if you are an early riser! All meal details will be arranged at booking.
A winding, scenic, paved 20 minute drive takes you to the old town and county seat of Coquille, and another 20 minutes lands you in the city of Coos Bay, which is the second largest port on the renowned Oregon coast. South of that is the quaint town of Bandon-by-the-Sea where the southern stretch of breathtaking sea-stacked rocks begins, leading to the giant redwoods in northern California. Old-growth forests are a short drive from the farm, and beautiful hiking, running and biking routes along the river and within the canyon are accessible from our driveway. Roseburg and the I-5 corridor are slightly over an hour away with easy access to winery tour routes and other parts of Oregon or California.

  • Even if it's not directly on the way to your destination, Myrtle Glen Farms is worth the detour if you're in search of a quiet, restorative getaway. The property itself is gorgeously pastoral, with its grazing goats and well-maintained orchard all nestled into the surrounding forest land. But David's incredible hospitality is what truly made our stay. When we arrived around the dinner hour, we were greeted with a superbly fresh, vegetarian, and 100% homemade meal--paired with a special homebrew that I've been missing ever since. It beat every restaurant we'd tried along the way. After dinner, we strolled with the farm's adorable dogs through the surrounding woods, frolicked with the baby goats, and soaked in a hottub beneath the stars. The night out there was so still, so devoid of the usual city sounds that it felt as though we were on another planet. In the morning, David served up pancakes slathered in fruits he grew himself and fried eggs from the chickens right out back. Then we took our yoga mats out to the studio to stretch out our bodies before folding them back into the car. In addition to being downright heavenly, the whole experience was inspiring. Thank you, David, for everything you did for us and continue to do for others. You are seriously making the world a better place, one Airbnb guest at a time.

  • David is a wonderful host. He served a fabulous dinner and breakfast, which no hotels could match. I felt very comfortable, safe and well taken care of in his charming retreat, which reflects his kind soul and his commendable devotion to sustainability, as well as, the skills of a master gardener. Interaction with his animals was a true plus. A magical, peaceful place.

  • Hello Airbnb-ers,
    First of all I would like to give the Ellen DeGeneres show props, and so should Airbnb, since it was her giving away a trip last week at he close of her show, through Airbnb, which turned me on to your site, and the beautiful experience/outcome which I was blessed with right out of the shoot.
    I am still reeling from my amazing weekend spent at Myrtle Glen Farm last weekend. David, the quintessential host, which all should aspire to be, made the journey comfortable and inviting right from the get go.
    I looked into the site Thursday eve late, contacted three hosts, for our 1st spontaneous trip, and by 4:45am the next morning, David had already made contact with me. My excitement grew, in anticipation, and through Davids return emails, prompt and on point, I knew that I wanted to stay nowhere else, at the time.
    We arrived, as strangers, yet within moments, we felt comfortable, welcome, and yearning, (due to the smells coming out of the kitchen), for our pre determined dinner, from Chef David. Only the freshest, and organic would do, fresh goat yogurt, an organic salad, made out of kale, and mixed greens, and an amazing veggie chili dinner, with homemade cornbread, homemade Myrtleberry wine and beer. It does not get any better than this.
    Tons of intellectual conversation, rolling laughter, (I seriously redefined my abs, due to laughing so much), it was hard to believe we had met only a few hours ago.
    Peaceful, serenity filled sleep, and then how about waking up to the aromatic fresh ground coffee, bright yellow yolked, free range eggs, blackberry honey, goat cream, whole wheat pancakes, or french toast, smathered with multi berry compote, and of course my favorite, goat yogurt.
    David hooked us up with directions to the beach, the waterfalls surrounding his home, a wealth of information, for whatever we had in mind.
    We were active and very social the 1st night, tired and wanting to rest the second, and either way, David catered, perceptively to our needs.
    The only problem was having to leave once the booking was over, a double edge sword, so happy to have found a beautiful new friend, and sad to go.The only question is not if we will book again, it is just, "WHEN".
    I must say even after we left Davids hospitable beauty, he still lingered on with us, since he gave us amazing directions to see the majestic redwoods as we traveled home, and oh what a sight to behold.
    I do not feel I will ever stay in a hotel again, and if every other host, within Airbnb, is as refreshing, comforting, and accommodating, then the world of travelers should become forever airbnb-ers.

  • Couldn't have had a better experience. David was a gracious and accommodating host. The land, home, and owner are unique and special. The experience of staying at Myrtle Glen Farm will recharge your batteries and recenter your perspective; reminding us that we are intrinsically interwoven into the natural world (something many of us lose sight of in our daily lives).

    The work and love poured into the farm for 30+ years imparts it's essence into your core. The land is an arboretum of sorts with a variety of plants and trees. There is a large garden, orchard, pond, stunning creek, pasture, forest, goats, chickens, llamas, 3 cats, 2 dogs (Oops and Tilly), and a duck. David is very knowledgeable and happy to take the time to educate you on the functions of the farm as well as all that makes up his home and land.

    The home is as unique as the land with much of it being repurposed from old homesteads among other things, like parts of old boats. The home has an abundance of natural light with an array of windows and skylights. The room in which we stayed was peaceful and relaxing.

    It all begins in the kitchen where the wood stove fires up the morning coffee and breakfast as it also warms the entire house. David whips up meals using ingredients harvested from the land. He also was gracious enough to share some of his delicious homemade beer and wine.

    Conversations over meals and during other points in the day and night ranged from deep and spiritual to lighthearted and amusing. David has a wealth of knowledge and wisdom, and his philosophy on sharing and commons was very inspirational.

    I think most people who are open-minded will leave Myrtle Glen Farm as a better people whether they are wwoofing for 3 weeks or staying a couple nights through the B&B. That's invaluable.

  • The space was super peaceful and lovely. I enjoyed my time meeting new, great people and exploring the nearby forest. Air Bnb is at its best when you have a certain type of person wanting to share their homes and stories with you. It's more like finding a host family than just a place to stay. Dave and Leena really hit that mark and make you feel welcome. This is a great place to relax and of course eat delicious food -- all while watching adorable baby goats frolicking. I mean seriously, that's awesome!

  • How do you rate an old friend? thats how i feel after staying with Leena and David. They were such wonderful hosts and have such a peaceful and beautiful home. I have told everyone i have talked to since my return how great the Myrtle Glen Farm and its gracious keepers are, if you are in the area don't miss out. Leena and David, I look forward to seeing you again. Thanks for everything, especially opening your home to visitors.

  • I waited a couple days to write a review on purpose. My husband and II were so very surprised and pleased with the surroundings, the hosts, the atmosphere, well, all of it. David and Leena, we exceptional hosts and I felt that we left there having new friends. They opening shared their home and their life with us. We truly came away from here, better people.

  • What a special place! I can't speak highly enough of this entire experience. David & Leena were wonderful hosts before, during, and after my stay. Their home is cozy and beautifully crafted; it's in many ways how I dream about living- sustainably and respectfully with their land. They shared a delicious meal and took care of me like family-I really enjoyed spending time with them and hope to visit again someday :)

About
We are a California-born Scandinavian and former Ohio native living in the middle of the coastal Oregon woods. Life here involves caring for our orchard, veggie and flower gardens, and tending to the furry and feathery animals on our small, sustainable Myrtle Glen Farm.. tended organically for 30 years. Leena, currently living in Hawaii, works both via internet as a freelance writer for various sustainability platforms and as program director at a yoga studio. David is an accomplished construction craftsman, nature photographer/videographer, musician, and brew-master/vintner. We've so enjoyed meeting and hosting folks through airbnb and use this great service as well when we travel together! We love good conversation and story, home-made music, and summer garden barbeques. One or both of us are always available to our guests, and are very understanding and accommodating of those that wish to be left alone. The home sits on a clean, wild river in the midst of serene mountain landscapes, with Old growth forest hikes not far away. We're less than an hour from some of the most beautiful beaches on the Oregon coast and wine country just over the mountains east. With private decks, a hot-tub and yoga studio, you can truly relax and pamper yourself here. We live in awareness and appreciation of our surroundings, and grow, nurture and enjoy amazing food and relationships with the creatures we abide among. We host work traders seasonally through the WWOOF organization in order to share this lush place, have help with the large veggie garden and teach the skills and practices that have been nearly forgotten and not taught to recent generations.
