In 1955, a young married couple, James and Ruby Bethell, purchased this property, about 200 acres of forested land. Together, they cleared part of the land and then sold all but 20 acres to raise funds to build their home and start the fledgling Bethell Logging Company, which Jim ran from this location for 48 years.

Five generations of Bethells have lived and made memories on our property, including Jim’s parents, his four daughters, eight grandkids and nine great grandkids. Cindy Bethell, Jim and Ruby’s youngest daughter, owns and operates the bed and breakfast along with her husband, Roger Asbahr.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: In 2010, my husband Roger and I moved to my family property and began making preparations for a new B&B. I had just left a 15-year career in environmental policy and sustainable development, the first 10 years n Washington, DC where I worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and later served as an environment adviser in the U.S. Senate. We returned to our home State of Oregon in 2005, where I worked for the Portland Development Commission until 2010. Roger had a psychology practice for 14 years in Corvallis and then ran a computer technology business for 10 years. We were both seeking a more serene life and decided to return to our roots by moving back to a rural country setting. I am an avid gardener and rock hound, and enjoy reading, writing and cooking. Roger is a professional musician who sings and plays the guitar. He also manages his part-time business, Sherlock Computing. Together we love to travel, backpack and hike, and now enjoy blissful country living with our cats, and Marlow, our Mini Australian Shepherd. We enjoy meeting travelers from around the world and sharing our little piece of paradise with them.

          Why the Owner Chose Dallas:
          Bethell Woods is on my family's property that dates back to 1955. I grew up here and have fond memories of riding horses with my sisters, watching our Dad run his logging business, building tree forts, and playing with our horses, dog, kitties, frogs and salamanders. In 2010, I had the good fortune to return to the family estate after nearly 40 years and create Bethell Woods Bed & Breakfast. It has been a marvelous opportunity and blessing.

          The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
          This property’s unique benefits include lovely views from our hill, of soulful sunrises and sunsets, Mt. Jefferson, The Three Sisters Mountains, and the coast range mountains. Our property is defined by the old and new forests and various gardens. Our central location is 8 miles from the nearest town and 4.5 miles from the nearest 18-hole golf course; and 15 minutes from the Pentacle, a renown community theater, and from the Spirit Mountain Casino--the most popular tourist attraction in Oregon; 20 minutes from the Evergreen Air & Space Museum with a Water Park and IMAX theater, and 45 minutes from the lovely Pacific Ocean. We are surrounded by over a dozen lovely vineyards in a radius of 10 miles.
