About Lin Bernhardt
The husband and wife team of Lin and Lynn love to share their little piece of heaven with others. We're passionate about caring for the land and respecting all living things. We have provided homes for a number of rescued animals including horses, chickens, goats (though not currently), dogs and cats. When away from the farm, we enjoy being in nature and taking off in our camper.
Lin Bernhardt purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Lin Bernhardt chose Jackson County
We were so lucky to find this property....having a gorgeous rural home on serene property so close to town....it wasn't even on the market when we purchased it! It was a place for our horses where we could grow our own hay, have a large garden, and be close to all the amazing talent the area has to offer. Theater, art galleries, beautiful wineries, amazing music venues, lakes and rivers close by all add to why we choose to call the Rogue Valley our home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Beautiful open spaces, gardens, animals, privacy, tranquility, and a serene country setting but close in to name just a few!

A welcoming couple on a lovely slice of farmland just outside the quiet and peaceful town of Talent
We stayed in a stand alone studio amongst the main house, B & B and cottage. The site’s farm acreage is surrounded by a large pear orchard in April’s full bloom. Two ponds, geese and goslings, friendly dogs and horses grace the farm. The room was cozy and neat, with all that we needed for an overnight stay. A pleasant way to see a play in Ashland and then come to Talent to relax.
Shady Grove Farm in Talent Oregon was Positively Lovely
Oh my goodness, I absolutely loved my time at the Tranquil Small Farm/Shady Grove in Talent, Oregon. The studio is lovely, clean, cozy and SO quiet. I had my dog with me and we so enjoyed walking around the farm. I was sad to leave but will definitely be back. And Talent is very close to Ashland, so I could drive to see plays in minutes - but then really appreciated coming home to such a lovely, tranquil setting.
Quiet, Serene Spot to Rest
Driving through the Ashland area at the end of a long road trip and this was the perfect place to rest up.
Very quiet property, great animals to hang out with (our dog loved meeting the other pups, and certainly did a double take with the horses), peaceful and mellow farm.
Ashland has some great food options (we found out Talent was a little light depending on what you were looking for) and is just down the road.
Very very nice.... cozy, warm and comfortable and very quiet. Loved hearing the Canadian geese .
The cabin was very well "appointed" with all the right comforts of home. We loved being in nature wit the pond and geese. And the best part was that we were right next door to family. Thank you very much. Tina and ken Slosberg
Great place to stay
We appreciated staying in the studio on the farm: Communication with Lin was clear and friendly; the location was great for visiting folks in Talent and it is easy to get into Ashland; the farm is lovely and we enjoyed meeting the horses, turkey and dog; The studio is well-built and spacious, it has a nice feel inside; the furnishings are solid, not flimsy as is the case in many rentals... and what a good deal, price- wise! The studio is very private and quiet. All this AND we saw a crane take off from the pond -- Very cool!
Serene and beautiful!
Only stayed overnight so had little time to enjoy the beautiful setting but it was a great place to rest and decompress. The bed was comfy, the kitchenette was well stocked and the room was clean. Had a wonderful dinner at the fabulous Arbor House, only minutes away, will definitely return!
This small hay farm is located in a beautiful country setting with large ponds surrounded by old willows and other mature trees. Shady Grove Farm is centrally located yet walking distance to the quaint village of Talent. It's easy access from Interstate 5 and just minutes to Ashland, Jacksonville and Medford. In 10 minutes you can be at a Shakespeare Festival Play or hiking up Wagner Butte. Walk to a play at the Camelot Theater and/or dine at one of several good restaurants in Talent.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Please note that this is a working farm. While machinery is only operating in the hay field on a very occasional basis, we attempt to minimize noise and try to limit mowing/baling when guests are not present. Agricultural activity also occurs on adjacent farms but the serenity of the countryside is rarely interrupted. We do ask studio guests to leave the studio clean for the next guests.
