How many cabins do you have?
We just have the one cabin with two bedrooms and one bath. It works well for families, couples, friends, or individuals. We would never book two separate parties who didn’t know each other.
How far are you from 'civilization'?
Our farm is off Hwy 34 that runs east-west from the Pacific Ocean to the Cascades. The town of Alsea is three miles from our farm and has a general store and gas station. Corvallis is 25 miles (35 minutes) away. Eugene is an hour's drive. Portland is two hours drive door-to-door. There is a part of the drive from Corvallis to Alsea affectionately called the "curvies" by locals. This is 2-1/2 miles of sharp turns as you ascend over Mary's Peak pass from the Willamette Valley into the Coast Range. Once you turn onto Honey Grove Road, do not panic that you will be lost in the woods forever. While there are houses at the very beginning of the road, you will go almost 2 miles without any dwellings before reaching our farm. Past us, there are another 8 families farther up the valley!
Do you sell lamb?
We often have some lamb in the freezer for sale, and we sell shares in our lambs annually. Our lambs are Katahdin and Katahdin crosses so they will be lower in cholesterol and fat than the lamb you buy in the market. They are also pasture raised on our property.
What fruits and vegetables grow on your property?
You may free-range at will on our farm for blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, plums, apples, grapes, lettuce, etc., in season, to compliment your meals. We usually have extra of all these things and can point you in the right direction.
Do you have a barbeque?
Yes. We also have outside seating on the deck for meals as long as the weather cooperates (little to no rain- usually- from June through September).
Are the animals friendly?
Our guests think so. Some are overly friendly if you feed them, like Fred the peacock! Because this is a farm, it is best to approach all animals cautiously. We have some advice listed in our Farm Rules in the cabin.
How flexible are you with check-in and check-out times?
We are relatively flexible as long as no one is booked before or after you. Please ask before arrival whether we can accommodate early check-in or late check-out.
Do you take credit cards?
Yes, we take Visa and MasterCard.
Is there a phone?
There is no phone in the cabin, but you may use our house phone. If you wish to use your cell phone, you will need to drive to the end of the road or into Alsea for service!
Is there wireless access?
Yes! We have a wireless hub in our house and if you sit on the deck or close to the windows in the living room of the cabin, you can access our system any time day or night.
