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.
We live comfortably, but with full respect for the land and all of its creatures. We keep our showers short and sweet, recycle nearly everything and compost anything biodegradable. On sunny days we cook food in our solar oven, and on chillier ones the Elmira wood cook-stove does the job. However, we do have an electric range for use as well. Our animals live outdoors, and we ask you not to bring your own without discussing it with us first. Our washer and dryer are available for use. The main house rule: If you don't know, just ask. We would rather you ask us about anything and everything than risk any kind of damage, loss or injury.
We had a wonderful time at Myrtle Glen Farm. All of our hosts and their interns/friends were great to be around. Dave and Micha especially went out of their way to make sure all was well! The house was beautiful and the animals friendly. We felt right at home. The surrounding area offers much too. We'd be happy to return!
Dan & Micha were super welcoming and accommodating of my later arrival time. I was greeted with such warmth & hospitality. I fell quite in love with Myrtle Glen Farm and ended up staying several days instead of just the one night. It's a truly special place. David's craftsmanship and stewarding of the organic farm for 30 years has made it a truly magical piece of land to spend time on and Dan & Micha are the perfect hosts to take it over. They were warm, friendly, informative & helpful in answering my questions and making me feel at home. I had so many wonderful conversations during my days there and really didn't want to leave. I'd recommend this place to anyone exploring the coast - even though it's a tiny bit more off the beaten path it was still close enough & WELL worth it for the peaceful, retreat-like setting you get to be nourished by. And if you stay here, by all means - EAT WITH THEM! I was so grateful for the lovingly prepared, healthy & delicious meals I had at Myrtle Glen. Definitely a nice added perk to add on to your stay :)
A few acres of rain-kissed heaven, David, Dan and Micha Have selected a lovely piece of country to live and farm and are gracious enough to let some of us enjoy it for a day or two. Our visit (wife/myself) was brief but beautiful, meals were hearty and conversation lively. Great retreat to reset your approach to some fundamental parts of life like eating real foods, living sustainably, even rethink what your working for in life. The house itself is a work of art and its materials sourced locally/sustainably. I used the yoga studio and jogged a great path through the forested surroundings for the best workout. If you have any intersest in agriculture, architecture or learning to leave a smaller ecological footprint, and you find yourself in this part of Oregon book now!
I don't even know where to start.... I have very personal reasons that Myrtle Glen Farm struck dear to my heart, but will say how this is just a magical place for anyone lucky enough to experience.
Dan and Micha are the most laid back and cool people. I loved their sense of humor and passion. Dan met me with a big smile and welcomed me in right away. Everything about Myrtle Glen is just lovely. The house exudes so much warmth and is so inviting as well as beautifully appointed. The room was very cozy and quiet with amazing view. I felt spoiled with the offering of homemade cider and golden plum wine. I so enjoyed the incredibly delicious dinner and breakfast family style. Micha is most sweet and gracious and has such a calm and comforting presence. David was awesome and is a great storyteller. Looking forward to hearing and learning more from all on next visit. The dynamic between the three, between the animals and the environment, creates the perfect atmosphere and everything just seems to flow.
The property is overwhelmingly beautiful and around ever corner it just gets better. I enjoyed a hike with one of the sweet resident pooches (Oops) and she led me to some beautiful woods. The goats are hilarious and friendly (Cathy was my favorite) and Sequoia and Tilly and Bob the duck with his funny little walk provide critter fixes. I could go on and on....I just can't wait to go back.
Oh my gosh, where should I begin? My daughter and I just had two of the sweetest days staying with the gang at Myrtle Glen Farm. The accomodations were comfortable and cozy, the food was out of this world delicious and the company the best. We hiked, hot tubed, relaxed, read books from the shelves, played with the dogs and llamas, walked the property and drove over to the coast for a day of rainy beach walking. We just can't wait to return!!! If you go, definitely eat at the farm, you will be soooo glad you did!
Our time with Dan and Micha was way too short-lived. Our trip to south-coast was planned at the last minute and I had heard of their farm a few months prior from another traveler, so when I checked for availability on the farm we were really excited to see they had a room available. We got in later than expected but were greeted with open arms by Dan, Micha and their other house guests. They were incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home. Not only were Dan and Micha incredibly gracious hosts but the house, land and all of their four-legged friends are full of incredible energy. We could feel the love radiating from the house the minute we walked in. The energy was so relaxing being in the woods and on the serene land that my boyfriend and I ended up sleeping peacefully for almost 10 hours that night! It was truly a relaxing, rejuvenating stay. The wholesome, home-cooked breakfast was energizing and each ingredient was grown and made with love-thank you for being such wonderful hosts!! We are already excited to plan another trip to south-coast and hope to have more than just one night on the farm! Dave wasn't there the night we stayed but Dan and Micha were truly wonderful hosts. We had good conversations, they were really helpful in giving us some suggestions of trails to explore in the Redwoods, were kindly flexible with our changing arrival times, and overall we felt like we were welcomed in as family and felt like we left having made a handful of new friends (2-legged & 4-legged)! The house itself is incredible, full of beautiful art, textiles, succulents and an array of other house-plants, trinkets, and the antique wood stove which is basically the heart of the house, completes the warm energy inside. Thank you again for making our stay so delightful. We hope to see you again soon!
Lovely, peaceful setting. Great hosts with a passion to make ours a positive experience.

We are an organic farm 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. David, who previously owned the farm and still resides here, is an accomplished construction craftsman, nature photographer/videographer, musician, and brew-master/vintner. He recently sold the farm to us, Dan and Micha, photographers, brewers, cooks, and gardeners, and are taking the baton to continue all that this place is and more. We are working together for the next year to aid in this shift. Formerly owned an operated by David and Leena, it's the same place just new folks added. We've so enjoyed meeting and hosting folks through airbnb and we all use this great service as well when we travel! We love good conversation and story, home-made music, and summer garden barbeques. At least one of us are always available to our guests, and are very understanding and accommodating of those that wish to be left alone. Although, because we are a farmhouse with helpers and guests abound, cannot, at times, facilitate total quietude.
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.
