About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Our farm cabin along the bike trail is small--only 425 sf, plus a loft and a large front porch. We had a hand in building it, along with our neighbor and a few other local craftsmen. It is designed to provide solitude and comfort. It includes all the true necessities; at the same time we have chosen to eliminate unnecessary noise and clutter. You will find hot water, a small refrigerator, and a cozy wood stove and wood supply. Gaze from our porch over the valley or take advantage of many recreational opportunities nearby. Hiking (especially Brice Creek Trail or Upper Trestle Falls Trail) is grand. Oregon Scenic Bikeways Covered Bridges ride takes scenic curves around Dorena Lake to and from our cabin to Cottage Grove (17 mi one way). Swimming, kayaking, picnicking... It is ideal for families or couples. If you choose to bike East of our cabin, beyond the bikeway, cars are few, the water is inviting, hiking abounds. In winter, white water kayakers enjoy Brice Creek.
Nearby Cottage Grove is a small town that offers Historic Main Street (where Animal House was filmed), pubs, restaurants, music venues, museums (including Bohemia Gold Mining Museum), murals, and parks. Within striking distance are several wineries (Saginaw Vinyard, Chateau Lorane, and many more). [Please be sure to review UNIQUE BENEFITS below. We want to be sure this cabin is for you.]

We are situated in the Row (rhymes with 'cow') River valley. (Beware that much of this valley has no cell service.) This little-known river has loads of great swimming holes. The Covered Bridges Scenic Bikeway goes from Cottage Grove almost to our door. Next to us are scenic pastures. February through April, Brice Creek is expert level kayaking. (A car shuttle would be easy, since the road is never too far away from the water.) Lots of lovely hikes in the area (ex. Brice Creek and Upper Trestle Falls in Umpqua NF). Comparatively few people fish the upper river, though it is reputed to be quite good for trout.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are semi-retired teachers who have grown children. We all have outdoor interests, and some of us are avid gardeners...even farmers.
Why the Owner Chose Dorena, OR, USA:
Our family loves to bike, hike, back pack, swim, and cross country ski. We wanted rural property where we could be close to nature and also grow our own food. Our family has spent wonderful moments here and we hope you will enjoy it too.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We built our home to be simple and beautiful. We intentionally left out things that do not foster inner quiet. THEREFORE NO TELEPHONE, TV, OR DISHWASHER. However, there is electricity, indoor plumbing, a microwave, apartment sized refrigerator, an ipod/mp3 docking station, and a guitar. We have a small library of carefully chosen books and board games. Renters need to be aware that there is NO CELL SERVICE from our cabin, although it can be found at the Mercantile, about 2 miles away.
