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.
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 have had some very special Airbnb experiences and have met some truly incredible people in our travels. But Myrtle Glen Farm was something we returned home from feeling not only rejuvenated in body and spirit, but truly inspired. We actually wrote a detailed review of our experiences there, but then scrapped it and here's why: there is magic from the moment you arrive, and it continues to unfold the entire time you are there. So, to be concise and absolutely clear: if you appreciate truly great food with home-grown ingredients (Micha is a magician in the kitchen), if being away from the city so far that there is no other light interfering with your view of the moon and stars brings you peace, if you admire people who know how to live off the land and treat it with great respect in return, then you really need to experience Myrtle Glen Farm. Micha, Dan, and David are committed, wonderfully easy, fascinating, extremely knowledgable, and very artistic hosts. Their home is as comfortable as you would imagine the quintessential farmhouse in the country to be: warm, woody, and often smelling of wonderful things brewing or baking. This is the ultimate "get out of the city" trip. This is not a place to just spend the night. You can, if course, but you will serve yourself much better to plan on staying a few days/nights and letting this BE your vacation experience. In our 3 full days there, we only left the farm in our car one time to go check out Arago State Park for a few hours. We will definitely be returning as a whole family next time--and soon. It doesn't get to be a more complete and fulfilling experience than this.
Micha, Dan and David were wonderful hosts. We ended up joining them for breakfasts and dinners and greatly enjoyed their company. The posted description of the farm and location were accurate. Their home is unique, beautiful, and relaxing. The surrounding forests are perfect for morning runs and fresh air. They are located only a short distance from the ocean and the Oregon dunes--which we loved. We are already looking forward to our next stay at the Myrtle Glen Farm!
Dan and Micha are amazing hosts, and Myrtle Glen is BEAUTIFUL. I remember reading on airbnb from other guests to "just go". So glad we did. Despite the drive (which can be a little tricky at night - go during the day if possible), every bit was so worth it. It was a very welcome retreat on our road trip - complete with farm fresh meals, clean and cozy rooms, fire place, and yoga studio. Our hosts were amazing - so friendly and welcoming. We love this place and would love to come back. Thanks for making our stay so great.
Myrtle Glen Farm is a must-stay if you're anywhere near the area. It seemed like we were driving out to nowhere on our way to the farm, which was a great escape from busy highways. The house and room were great, and Dan and Micha are very friendly and interesting people. We enjoyed learning about the homestead as well as looking at their great photography around the house! Breakfast was delicious with all fresh and homegrown products, and taking a walk around the lands is very beautiful and tranquil. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely be staying at this listing again.
I wish I could have stayed on as an organic gardening apprentice! David's touch is everywhere evident as creator of this magical space which he passes on to the eager and committed hands/minds/hearts of Dan and Misha. All three were excellent hosts and it was fun visiting with the other lodgers from Australia. The moon cooperated by being nearly full... beautiful thru the skylights.

We are an organic farm currently in ownership transition, 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 is an accomplished construction craftsman, nature photographer/videographer, musician, and brew-master/vintner. He has recently sold the farm to Dan and Micha, also photographers, and gardeners, and they 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.
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.
