Welcome to Calliope Vineyard and Retreat Center!
Our campsites are on a small pond in an old growth cedar forest with a few trails to enjoy the stillness and magic of the woods.
Please let us know if you are needing a van camping spot opposed to tent camping in the woods. we also can split up your group if some are tent camping and others need van camping.
We consider this land sacred. We are only caretakers passing through, and honor this place and the peoples it was taken from.
Please be mindful of the energy of the forest, and all the people and animals who have come before.
We donate 5% of earnings to "landback. Landback is an organization and movement motivated to get Indigenous lands back into indigenous hands. and to MMIW (missing and murdered indigenous women.
This forest is home to beavers, coyote, deer, raccoons, salamanders, cougars, and many bird and bug species.
You will have a good amount of space and privacy for your party, but may encounter others enjoying the forest as well.
Included with the tent campsites, we provide a picnic table, and fire-pit (with an option to purchase wood) and a fire extinguisher for emergencies.
There is also a good amount of wood that can be found on the ground, but keep in mind we have had a very wet spring. We respect fire bans.
There is a brand new out house about a 3 minute walk from the campsites at the top of the small hill. This is a pit toilet, and we provide sawdust to use when done.
When you arrive, take a right at the pool. Just across from the pool is the woodshed. You will see two parking spots to the left of the woodshed (Hobbit Hollow parking) and two on the right (Hobbit Circle) You can unload here. (We have carts if needed) Across from parking, and attached to the barn, is the water station, and instructions.
You will be walking (or carting) your things down to the forest where you will pass the outhouse on the left. Walk down the path. For Hobbit Hollow, take the path to the left across the second bridge. For hobbit Circle, walk around the pond. The path around the pond to Hobbit Circle is bit narrow for the cart.
It is not a very long walk, but there is a decline, and you need to be a little hearty to camp here.
For Caravan camping, we provide car camping on the sport court, or have a few other options.
We have a pool, hot tub, massage therapy, and an outdoor shower for an additional charge. (See Extras)
The additional charge for the pool and hot tub is $15 per person for 90 minutes of hot tub time. The pool is available any time after July 1st, and may be shared with us, but you must schedule the hot tub for privacy at the sign up sheet by the water station.
The hot tub is to the right of the house down by the garden.
The garden is very near the hot tub, so there could always be someone gardening.
You are welcome to walk the vineyard,and explore the front of the property. My neighbor Beth is a master gardener, and loves to give tours of her gardens.
We have delicious Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Malbec and a Rosé for purchase from our winery. (Inquire upon arrival)
We take fire safety very seriously. Please make sure all fires are out completely before sleeping or leaving.
If there is a fire ban, it will be upheld.
If you smoke in the forest, please be very conscious of any sparks, and contain your butts in something to be taken away.
Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog. We do have chickens, but they are mainly penned up. My neighbors have chickens who are loose. Please pick up after your dog as much as possible. They must not run off, and leashed in common areas. Do not let your dog run free to the neighboring properties.
We can also accept larger groups, and can accommodate small wedding parties, celebrations, retreats, and gatherings that can include the vineyard,(front of property) a cabin, catering and more. (Inquire for pricing)
