Cowboy Heaven! Saddle on up to this rootin' tootin' charmer with open beam high peaked knotty pine ceiling, private BR w/queen bed. Loft accessible by Lodge pole ladder to sleeping loft w/1 full bed & 1 twin sleigh bed. Cozy kitchen w/antique fridge, island w/2 saddle seats, table + 4 chairs. LR w/hardwood floor, TV, couch, rocking swivel & stuffed chair, river rock hearth & mantle wood stove w/glass face. Bathroom w/custom tile shower. Dogs allowed in dwelling: $35/dog (max of 2 dogs).

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 - lots of history here folks!

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 loft is accessible by pole ladder only; NO children under 10 or those prone to sleep walking in the loft (or sign a waiver holding Tired Dog Ranch, et.al. harmless).

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 featuring saddle benches 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 slide in a movie (compliments of TDR) using the DVD player - and if that's not enough, dance your buns off from the selection of CD's and portable player!

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, dogs, chickens, outdoor cat) can be enjoyed by young and old alike. Ask the chief cowpoke for details here.

Tired Dog Ranch features four Vacation Rentals: Cascadian Cottage (sleeps up to 6 w/three beds - Queen, Full, Full), Cowboy Cabin (sleeps up to 5 w/three beds - Queen, Full, Twin), Celestial Yurt (sleeps up to 4 w/two beds - king and queen pull out couch) and Hen House (sleeps up to 3 w/two beds - king and full futon couch), Campsites with composting toilets, potable water, mortis and tenoned "Cadillac Campsite Kitchen and Shower Shelter" with cook and serve-ware for up to 20, Large fire pit with wrap seating (May through October) in open grassy meadow surrounded by a collosium of evergreens and beautiful view of the constellations. The grounds can accommodate RV parking, equine lodging (12' x 12' paneled mare motels with fresh water barrels, grain bucket, hay net, muck rake and wheelbarrow). Please call for pricing of these additional amenities.



To greet you at check-in is a fully furnished dwelling with fresh ground coffee, teas, free range eggs, real butter & oil, basic condiments, music, wood - kindling - starter and matches for the stove, DISH network, CD's and DVD movies and wi-fi to enjoy after a day of romping on the trails and in the waterways down a path that starts at the red wagon wheel and travels to the rear of the Yurt. Or if you prefer, laze around in the upper meadow, yards or orchard, kick up your paws in the hammock by the Long House and under a tree or at the edge of Grey Creek (west boundary line). Fun can be had romping around the many walking and riding trails on, around and beyond the property boundaries and into the Middle Fork Willamette Forest.

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 and in the forest. There is a $15/per pet/night (maximum of 2). Please notify during your booking process if you are bringing pets, and if so, how many. Additional charges and negative review will be added for non-disclosure and violation of rules of conduct. Neither dog(s) or children under 16-YO can be left in a dwelling without ADULT supervision (no teen baby sitters!) and dogs must remain on leash when on the grounds to the west of the upper meadow, and children remaining cordial around the chickens, cat, dog and horses (no chasing, etc.). You may feed the horses carrots and apples from over the fence (no access into pasture allowed), but please cut them to bite size amounts. Free range chickens amble around the grounds up to the dwellings, though do not venture to the upper meadow where you can let your dog off leash as long as they return to you when called. If a chicken is maimed or killed as a result of your dog attack, there is a charge of $50.

Where you’ll be

Westfir, Oregon, United States

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. Two 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.

During your stay
I live on the grounds, in a separate house next door, so am nearby, but not in your space. Please help yourself in and make yourself at home. There is a key on the support beam of the awning to the right of the door (near the porch light). Please return it to that place each time you leave the dwelling. Do not take the key with you during your outings.
