A Private Retreat Sanctuary





Welcome to Homestead Cottage


                  Breathe your own rhythm  Feel life-energy flow

Located in one of the most beautiful spots in the So. Oregon region, our woodland annex, Homestead Cottage, is a charming bungalow nestled on 60-acres of private forested property in the Griffin Creek area between Ashland and Jacksonville. It’s at the end of a country road (now paved), with property borders on BLM (Bureau of Land Management) watershed land, so the surrounding trees are old and tall. It feels and sounds like you are the wilderness, yet 10-minutes driving finds you in downtown Medford, Oregon. This is a perfect place for your private retreat.


Homestead Cottage is a spacious, modern home built in 2000. The living room is large and open, the walls lined with books. You’ll be comfortable sitting on one of two IKEA queen sofabeds and several arm-chairs. There’s a desk with useable PC, a free-standing fireplace, and a lovely round kitchen table with chairs. There is also 42” plasma screen TV with cable, HBO, Showtime, and a selection of DVDs. Expect good wi-fi for all your computer connections. Expect also that you are so remote your cell phone won’t work inside the building, and only occasionally outside (although there are a couple of “sweet spots”).




The kitchen in Homestead Cottage opens as part of the living room. It is well-appointed with a gas stove and oven, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and a good selection of pots, pans, dishes, and cutlery. The fridge is "apartment" size, adequate for a family on vacation.



The bedroom at Homestead Cottage is larger than a single car garage, with a new carpet and a new queen bed (guests report that it’s very comfortable. There’s a beautiful antique wardrobe and dresser for your clothes storage and Candace’s Grandmother Bee’s living room chairs to sit upon.

Homestead Cottage’s bathroom has a deep stainless steel sink and plenty of hooks for towels. You’ll find abundant, thick, clean towels in the bathroom cabinet. The large, custom, cultured marble shower features a bench and a pair of shower faucets so you can shower together with a friend or lover.

You can expect a peaceful woodland experience when you stay at Homestead Cottage. The nearest neighbor is more than 0.3 miles distant. A car might pass along the nearby easement road once every day or two (going to or from home). You’ll not listen to traffic at night, but instead enjoy the cackle of hens and the occasional rooster crow, buzzing bees from our four hives, our two old, friendly dogs barking at pesky squirrels, a nearby family of night owls hooting, or the gaggle of wild turkey as they cross the front meadow.

You are welcome to bring your dog when you vacation at Homestead Cottage. Our flock of chicken wanders freely, so we ask you keep an eye on your pets – sometimes they chase chickens and that doesn’t work for us. But we love canine visitors.

You can curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book, hang in a hammock, swing in our sky chair, find plenty of shady spots to read a book or just be with the natural world, dine at our shady picnic table, and generally enjoy peace and quiet between expeditions into the Rogue Valley. See plays, dine or shop in Ashland (25-minutes); wander historic Jacksonville (10-minutes); go wine-tasting in the Applegate Valley (15-minutes); play or raft in the Rogue River (45-minutes); ski Mt. Ashland (50-minutes) in the winter or hike Crater Lake (1- hour) in the summer. All the wonders of Southern Oregon are near to your private retreat sanctuary, Homestead Woodland Cottage.
