The space
Giddy Up to the Cowboy Cabin, plush with all that is western and rustic, be it the open beam vaulted ceilings with knotty pine, the post and beam construction or the distressed hardwood and large tile floors - many materials used in the construction of this dwelling are recycled or repurposed. The colors are a mix of bright and blooming, or sage brushy and calm - with artifacts and art to settle you in, cowboy style, after a rustling day in the woods or out on the plains. This is the only dwelling with a private bedroom that features a Queen bed for the restless cowhand in all of us. The river rock hearth and glass faced wood stove are sweet surrender to the eyes, or plug in a good movie on the flat screen TV perched on the sewing machine your grandma's grandma once used. Saddle up to the bar and crack a cold one, or hunker down to a warm meal at the table. Pull out a good book or honky tonk to a CD. Dedicated DISH network, wi-fi with Roku to watch Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc or plug in a cheesy movie on the big screen!

Tired Dog Ranch, an 18-acre farm/forest retreat at the edge of the Willamette Forest at the west end of the Cascade Range (Center for Outdoor Recreation!) with year-round Grey Creek as a west property line. Trails both on and off the property provide hiking enjoyment, while garden variety farm critters (horses, dog, chickens, outdoor cat) can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

As the name suggests, Tired Dog Ranch is DOG & KID FRIENDLY so bring your two and four legged family members along for fun on the farm in the forest. Neither can be left in a dwelling without ADULT supervision (no teen baby sitters!) and dogs must remain on leash and children remaining cordial around the chickens, cats, dog and horses (no chasing, etc.). If access IN the pasture is desired, I must be on-site and as a guide, otherwise do not enter the pasture. You may feed the horses carrots and apples, but please cut them to bite size amounts.

Or if you prefer, laze around in the yards or orchard, kick up your paws in the hammock by the long house and under an orchard tree or at the edge of Grey Creek (west boundary line).

See (URL HIDDEN) for other interesting and inviting events, features of the area, and activities throughout the year.

Guest access
Guests have access to the 18 acre grounds and private access to the National Forest with trails surrounding the property. Within the grounds is an orchard, woodlands, lawn, pasture with horses, a mule and a mini paint pony, farm cats and dogs, free range chickens! The open air long house provides shelter, Grey Creek bordering the west property line provides peaceful contemplation and the upper meadow with the glow of a campfire in the big fire pit and surrounded by colossal trees provides a lovely backdrop on a moonlit night! For those who want to camp and "glamp", there are a number of campsites in the upper meadow with composting toilets and a "Cadillac Campsite Kitchen and Shower Shelter" so you can cook without charring your meal on a propane 4-burner stove, wash the dishes (set of 12 plates, plastic and ceramic cups, 20 silverware, towels, S & P, utensils, pots and pans on hand) in a real live sink (hot water and soap on hand) and dry them in a rack. Four private hot shower stalls with dressing area and hooks for towels are dreamy when the day of play is done and sleeping sweaty in a sleeping bag feels sticky and smells stinky with the sunrise(no sea shells by the seashore were harmed in the making of that sentence). The central fire pit with wrap seating is magical for roasting hot dogs, marshmellows and warming tootsies while howling at the moon and constellation of other noteworthy stars with a collosium of second and old growth trees nestling you to sleep as owls croon you to stay an chat a spell.

Other things to note
The city of Oakridge is located approximately 40 miles from Eugene/Springfield and 25 miles from the Willamette Pass. There is a Ray's market and two other convenience stores, a liquor store and three bars/pubs, a post office in both Oakridge and Westfir (sister town). Tired Dog Ranch is located to the southwest of each town. There are many trails, rivers and streams to explore throughout the West Cascade Range that corridors these two towns. Westfir's Office Bridge, the longest covered bridge in Oregon, is the trailhead for the infamous Aufderheide Byway, linking this community to Blue River through a beautifully landscaped range that runs along the N.Fork Willamette River.

DIRECTIONS - can be easy if you don't depend on internet maps. While traveling on Hwy 58, access to LaDuke Rd. is Harbor Drive, a cut through road between MP 32 and 33. Quickly you join onto LaDuke Rd. and head east. Once you pass over Grey Creek bridge, turn into the next driveway. There is signage "ired Dog Ranch" just past a post at the driveway entry with the address. If you've hit gravel, you've gone too far. Travel up the driveway to your dwelling (Yurt is first, Cottage is second, Cabin is third, Campsite is at east end of property).

I love that Tired Dog Ranch is it's own little village - three separate dwellings and fun, usable auxiliary buildings on diverse 18 acres surrounded by national forest, and bordered by year-round Grey Creek (Dogfather of this gloriously diverse land). It is the perfect combination of woodland and pasture, with orchard, lawn, chickens, horses, dogs and farm cat to entertain daily. The neighborhood is rural, but the grounds are very private.

For those who want to camp and "glamp", there are a number of campsites in the upper meadow with composting toilets and a "Cadillac Campsite Kitchen and Shower Shelter" so you can cook without charring your meal on a propane 4-burner stove, wash the dishes (set of 12 plates, plastic and ceramic cups, 20 silverware, towels, S & P, utensils, pots and pans on hand) in a real live sink (hot water and soap on hand) and dry them in a rack.
