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 Talent

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!

Very very nice.... cozy, warm and comfortable and very quiet. Loved hearing the Canadian geese .

  • 5 of 5

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

Serene and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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!

A delightful experience at a working Oregon farm

  • 5 of 5

We spent one night at the farm, and would liked to have stayed longer. We loved the charming studio rental, and loved meeting the farmers and the rescue animals that live on the farm. It was heartening to find a place where people, dogs, chickens, geese, horses, a turkey, and a cat are all peacefully co-existing. We were cheered to be on an actual working family farm -- not a an agro-business. The farm is in a rural area, surrounded by pear orchards, and less than a mile from the town of Talent -- easily walkable. The facilities are great -- good working kitchen and WiFi included. I would recommend this place especially to people who do not want to be in a standard hotel and want to wake up and find oak leaves on their car, and make friends with a turkey.

Quiet tranquility near Ashland OR

  • 5 of 5

Charming studio in tranquil setting @ Shady Grove Farm! We stayed for 6 nights, and hated to leave! Conveniently close to Ashland, easy to attend the Shakespeare Theater plays, and enjoy restaurants and shopping in Ashland. The town of Talent has several charming eateries, including a fabulous Coffeehouse in town...all these within one mile walk from the cottage! If you bring bicycles, there's a nearby entrance to the wonderful pedestrian/bicycle path that runs for miles between Ashland and Medford. Another bonus are the horses, charming chickens (they have personalities!), and wild turkeys on the property...wonderful to be in such a natural setting.

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.

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.
