We are a California-born Scandinavian and former Ohio native living in the middle of the coastal Oregon (website hidden) 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.
Leena, currently living in Hawaii, works both via internet as a freelance writer for various sustainability platforms and as program director at a yoga studio. David is an accomplished construction craftsman, nature photographer/videographer, musician, and brew-master/vintner. We've so enjoyed meeting and hosting folks through airbnb and use this great service as well when we travel together! We love good conversation and story, home-made music, and summer garden barbeques. One or both 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.
