Off-grid living at its finest! Along Elliot creek- headwaters to the Rogue River- Only three miles from Applegate Lake, tucked into the hillside on a gated road, this place is a relaxing, rustic retreat ⛺️ 

With unique cabins, domes, treehouse, a bus, magical abodes and camping sites, we host a variety of travelers throughout the year. Our property is totally off-grid utilizing solar energy for lights, running water, wifi and power. Enjoy our hot, hot solar shower and Elliott creek baths, woodstoves for heat & cooking, and organic veggies in our spacious garden! We believe in a sustainable lifestyle and are looking forward to sharing our home with likeminded adventurers!

The Redwood Cabin was hand built by Johan, and is an authentically rustic woodland gem! The cabin has big windows looking out towards the creek, and a neat sleeping loft space with a futon mattress and unique windows.

While being the most secluded cabin on the property, the Redwood cabin does not have electricity nor running water. Guests may utilize power outlets, wifi, and potable water on the main house deck, and will have access to the composting toilet, solar shower, and all outdoor communal areas!

The Redwood cabin has a steep ladder-type staircase to get to the sleeping loft, which may not be suitable for children, elderly, or people!

The loft has a clean, full size futon mattress, and while there is a table and chairs on the main floor, there is also room to set up sleeping pads/mattress for additional guests.

This is a rustic camping experience- please bring your own sheets, blankets, sleeping bags, towels, and sweep the cabin out after you leave, ensuring it is ready for the next guests!

We have certified (AMAZING) artisan well water available in all the spigots around the property, and guests are welcome to forage in the organic garden and walk the trails throughout the property during their stay. Please keep the garden gate closed at all times and pets are not allowed in the garden, please!!

The Land

Our property is filled with moss, ferns, mushrooms, flowers, endless blackberries, an organic garden, and fantastic swimming and fishing spots in the crystal clear waters of Elliot Creek.

We are hidden on gated road, surrounded by National Forest land, and just 5 minutes from Applegate Lake. We are 45min from Medford, the closest town being 30min to Ruch, Oregon. Upon booking we send an easy to follow map with the padlock gatecode. 

We live off-grid with solar electricity, outdoor solar shower, and a composting toilet available to hipcampers. 

There is no cell phone reception anywhere on the property, but we do have reliable wifi and use email and facebook messenger to stay in contact while out here.  

Our wifi is not suitable, though, for streaming or downloading.

We like to travel a lot- so sometimes you will be greeted by our land host, and other times left to stay on your own! But we will always be happy to give you a tour of the land and garden if we can! When we are here, we stay around the main house, and we also host occasional wwoofers and work/trade volunteers on the property. 

We are always available to give guidance to surrounding hikes, best fishing spots, ect!

Beautiful Elliott Creek is the headwaters of the Rogue River and runs through the property. It is ideal for water playing, floating, and fishing. Applegate Lake is only minutes away, but we are in a private, safe, quiet little community of 6 houses beyond a gate, surrounded by forest. 

The land also hosts unique cabins, geodesic domes, a treehouse, sauna/cabin, small orchard, and an organic garden- all thanks to Johan, who has loved and landscaped this property for over 10 years.

There are some amazing hikes from the property, including a couple National Forest trails that are in-accessable to the public due to the gate (which we will provide you with the 4 digit code to after booking!). Our roads also link up with the Pacific Crest Trail and Siskiyou Crest Trails near Bloomfield Pass.

Fires are only allowed in the large communal fire pit on the main property, but are strictly forbidden during peak fire danger season. Firewood is available for purchase upon request. 

Pets are welcome if they are well-behaved and friendly with other animals. 

Please let us know if you will be bringing any animals or pets!

The garden space is strictly off limits to animals, besides Pumpkin- the resident cat on the property. We have lots of wildlife in the area so we don't recommend letting your dog loose unless you are sure they won't chase, and of course find a shovel or dispose of pet waste on the property !

The Garden is open for guests to forage from and enjoy, but PLEASE no animals in the garden! Depending on the time of year there are all sorts of yummy things, but please do not eat anything unless you are 100% sure of what it is!

There is also an incredible 60ft. high tree house on the property which is off-limits to guests at this time.

Happy Camping!

eden was super nice and around if we needed help. the cabin was clean and exactly as expected. i did wish there was a way to get down to the river without going through the backyard (maybe there is and i just could not find it). very dog friendly. fire pit is down by the main house so bring portable oven to cook. overall i would comeback as it was peaceful and quiet.

It’s was a great experience. My only recommendation to the hosts is to improve the directions and add signs to help guests who arrive late night. It’s was a bit tricky to find the place but it was the best outdoor experience I had! The place has a table, 4 chairs and a mattress and two pillows upstairs. That’s pretty much it, so go prepared. All in all, I would recommend this place to everyone and will come back for sure!
Thank you Eden and Levi!
