About This Listing
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 smaller room with a queen size futon-style bed. The other room (with a queen 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, across the living room, 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/home theater 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 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. Our washer and dryer are available for use, although we also have clothing lines and drying racks which we prefer to 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.

Oh my god! This place is amazing. A little difficult to find and a bit nerve wracking as I was fighting daylight but once I got there, all worries went away. Nice farm, comfortable farm with great hosts. Do you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, this is the place. Cannot recommend it enough.
This place was everything I hoped it would be. Quiet, peaceful, with excellent hosts. Dan and Micha were kind and considerate and very willing to answer my questions about the farm. I definitely want to come back when I can stay longer!
Had a fabulous stay. We were doing a trip down the coast so arrived later in the evening as got waylaid by all the wonderful scenery on route. Off the beaten track, but well worth the drive! Had booked for one night and wish we'd been able to stay longer. Lovely hosts, really relaxed and chilled out environment. Great conversation over breakfast. Also lovely friendly dogs. Wanted to take Tilly with us :)
David sent excellent directions and we were delighted to arrive in deepest pine scented country to find a house with pumpkins just harvested and lined up on shelves for the winter, apple juice being made and two comfortable rooms for us. We had a short but happy stay and would go there again if ever passing by.
This place is a-ma-zing! Wow, what a surprise. Its beautiful and has such a nice vibe, really homy. I enjoyed my stay here so much. I had a lovely dinner with the best plum wine ever(!) and the breakfast I got was just as good! David en the people who work over there are just really welcoming, open and friendly. Definitely go and see for yourself!
Thank you David and I wish you all the best with the plans for the future:)
Wow! How can I put into words my experience at the farm. It was definitely the best place I have ever stayed - the atmosphere was incredible and relaxing, David and the volunteers were remarkable and made me feel right at home! This was the perfect place to rejuvenate after traveling down the Oregon coast. Both the dinner and breakfast were delicious and made from produce from the garden. I hope to come back someday in the future! Truly an amazing find :)

About the Host, Dan & Micha
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.
Come join us!
