                  Welcome to The Good Earth, our charming vacation rental located on the southern edge of Terrebonne Oregon which is the French word for good earth! Our comfortable smoke free property offers all you will need to relax and enjoy the beauty that is the classic high desert of Central Oregon. Upon arrival expect to enjoy a variety of local products within the season! We offer a three bedroom, two bath home with an atrium nook full of greenery to enhance your day. Located on 2 acres high on the hill above our little town, we are only minutes away from all types of outdoor activities. 23 miles on Hwy. 97 takes you to Bend, while just 4.5 miles away Smith Rock State Park is waiting for your hiking boot tracks to be left on trails beneath golden hued world class climbing walls. A complementary park pass is available for use during your stay. We are 45 minutes from the unique little community of Sisters; home of towering pines, and a popular quilt show and folk festival. Skiing, hiking, fishing, biking, rock climbing, and boating are all within 15 minutes to an hour, as well as live theater, great wines, and over the top brewers. We could rattle on about the drop dead sunsets, brilliant stars, and your great hosts, but we are keeping this short and sweet. We would love it if you came to stay!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Together Cindy and her partner Mark(pictured) manage the day to day details of The Good Earth. Cindy and her brother Bob purchased the house and property together in the spring of 2012. Cindy lives in Oregon and retired in 2008 after 30 years of service with the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department. Bob lives in Northern Virginia, and retired from GSA with the federal government in 1997. Cindy is a mother, published freelance writer, and a foster caregiver for Brightside Animal Center. Bob is an avid reader, and a history and plane buff. Mark is a gifted 'jack of all trades' and keeps everything at the rental running like a well oiled machine! He usually greets all the guests personally and keeps that fire stoked just perfectly for a relaxing soak in the cedar Snorkel hot tub! Cindy and Mark are the faces you will see here at The Good Earth, and are always ready to help in any way to make sure your stay is as enjoyable and pleasant as it can possibly be.

                  Why the Owner Chose Terrebonne:
                  The shop, the chicken coop, raised beds, atrium, vegetation, the wildlife and colorful lizards, end of the road privacy and the view, the view, the view!! We live in this neighborhood, know and love the area, and are only minutes away to provide the best customer service possible. This is a gem of a house, and so close to everything!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Besides the majestic vista, out the back door hiking, open space and privacy, we are also part of a small community water system in the same aquifer as Earth2O which means good clear water! There is a newly paved road, unique quiet neighborhood with no light pollution and thousands of brilliant stars in the night sky! The raised garden beds, and healthy herb gardens provide extras for summer guests who like to cook! We are only a mile away from Hwy 97, and right in the heart of outdoor recreation at it's finest.
