Welcome to Calliope Vineyard and Retreat Center! We are open for camping and cabin bookings, as well as full property use: weddings, friend gatherings, family gatherings and retreats. (Full property use, cabin, all campsites, and front of property) please inquire for details/cost/available dates) *If you don't see a weekend open for dates for a full property booking, please inquire as we have some weekends blocked off for potential weddings/retreats. THE PROPERTY: Our campsites are on two beautiful ponds with a seasonal creek in an old growth cedar forest with a few trails to enjoy the stillness and magic of the woods.  There are 11 acres with a vineyard, fruit orchard, large garden, cob garden wall for lounging, fire pit at the vineyard with several picnic tables and hammocks, a big open field above the camping area, and the beautiful cedar forest. *Coming Spring 2024: our newly remodeled Owl Cabin with treehouse, a large deck off the barn for music, dinners, yoga and gathering. We consider this land sacred. We are only caretakers passing through, and honor this place and the original people of this land: The Molalla, Clackamas, and Kalapuya tribes, who were "relocated" to the Grand Ronde Reservation in the mid 1800's. Please be mindful of the energy of the forest, and all the people and animals who still reside and have come before. The forest is home to beavers, coyote, deer, raccoons, salamanders, frogs, and many bird and bug species. Our dream is to share this land with all people to create community in harmony with nature and provide a safe space. We welcome, open heartedly, people of all gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and artistic expression. WHEN YOU ARRIVE: Proceed down our long driveway to the bottom. Take a left at the sport court, and a right at the pool. On your left is the woodshed with the "Calliope Farm" mural. You will see two parking spots to the left of the woodshed (Harmony Hollow parking) and two on the right (Hobbit Circle) You can unload here and grab a cart. Across from the parking, on the red barn, is the water station, and the hot tub sign up sheet. You will be walking/carting your things down to the forest where you will pass the outhouse on the left. For Harmony Hollow, after you cross the first bridge, take the path to the left and cross a second bridge and the campsite is on your right. For Hobbit Circle, cross the first bridge and walk around the pond, which will lead you to the campsite. The campsites are a short walk, (200 yards) but there is a decline, and you need to be a little hearty to walk back up the hill with your things. You will have a good amount of space and privacy for your group, but may encounter others visiting the forest as well. Enjoy a social time while respecting that some come for quiet and reflection. We provide a picnic table, fire-pit and fire extinguisher. (with an option to purchase firewood)  There is wood that can be found on the ground, but keep in mind we have very wet winters and springs. FIRE SAFETY: If you bring your own firewood, make sure it is DRY to avoid excess smoke. We respect fire bans, and take fire safety very seriously. (as well as our elderly neighbors). Be extra careful with cigarette sparks, and please keep your fire on the smaller side. We reserve the right to suddenly ban fires if it is feeling extra dry. Please do not burn smokey wood (oak or wet wood) and do not leave fires unattended. Please make sure fires are fully extinguished before retiring for the evening or departing. We wish to all work together for safety, with intelligence, common sense, and fire consciousness. WE HAVE TWO OUTHOUSES: One is the original outhouse from the 70's located behind the chicken coop and closer to the parking area. It is rustic but functional. The second one is a newer outhouse about a 3 minute walk from the campsites at the top of the small hill. These are pit toilets, and we provide sawdust or ash, toilet pape,r and a hand wash station and/or sanitizer. Please let us know if they need attention. OFFERINGS: We have a cedar hot tub, pool (seasonal), massage therapy, an outdoor shower, and wine. The charge for the pool and/or hot tub is $15 per person for 75 minutes of hot tub time. The pool is unheated, and is available any time after July 1st, and may be shared with us or other campers, but you must schedule the hot tub for privacy at the sign up sheet on the barn. If you would like to shower and not hot tub, the cost is $5 per shower, otherwise its included in the hot tub fee, and required for hot tub entrance. If you, or anyone in your group did not pay for a hot tub ahead of time, you will find a Venmo link on the barn, or can bring cash. HOT TUB: The hot tub sign up sheet is on the barn next to the water station. It is first come first serve. If you are a larger group using the tub, consider choosing a later spot for water displacement. If the hot tub is too hot, please add cold water from the hose to desired temp. PLEASE do not turn down the temperature on the hot tub, but use the cold water to create desired temp, but not below 102. If you are staying multiple nights and would like to hot tub again, the cost is $10 pp, instead of $15. Kids under 10 are $5 The hot tub is to the right of the house down by the garden. Your time is private, but we may need to visit/work in the garden. PLEASE read and be mindful of the hot tub etiquette posted in the hot tub area. WINE/VINEYARD: ~Silas Wines~ This is the original vineyard for Silas Wines founded in 2010. Our Pinot Noir vines are 40 year old Wadensville clone planted by the Ritter family in the early 80's. We have delicious Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, and Rosé for purchase. (Inquire upon arrival) You are welcome to walk the vineyard, and explore the front of the property. Our neighbor Beth, to the west, is a master gardener, and loves to give tours of her gardens or you can wander on your own. (please inquire) Dogs: Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog. We and our neighbors have chickens that are penned and free ranged. Please DO NOT allow your dog (or yourself) to roam on our neighbors property over the fence in the next field to the East. He is very friendly, and we have a good relationship, but that is his request. Please pick up after your dog. Please do not lose site of dog, and keep them on leash in common areas. Please do not leave your dog unattended at the campsite or anywhere on the property where they will bark and disturb other guests. THE CARAVAN SPOT: Please let us know if you are needing a van camping spot opposed to tent camping in the woods. We do have a few different options for car camping, and when booking select the "caravan spot". We also can split up your group if some are tent camping and others need van camping, but you would need to book the two different sites. We look forward to hosting you and invite you to enjoy camping at Calliope Farm and the Cedar Forest. +++Our goal is to donate a portion of earnings to NAYA (The Native American Youth and Family center) and to MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women).

Harmony Hollow
Beautiful location close to Portlan
Emily and Frank are lovely hosts with a beautiful property. We highly enjoyed the space but got unlucky with a really rainy weekend. Fortunately the cedar hot tub and outdoor shower we're the perfect way to clean up and relax. We'll be back in sunnier months.

We booked last minute and Emily was so fast to respond! I came across Emily’s place and knew we had to stay the night. Mainly because of the hot tub! I’m so glad we did! The hot tub was everything we needed and it was so nice to be in a beautiful safe place for the night! We will definitely be back!

We had a delightful stay at the CaraVAN site at Calliope Retreat. Emily was exceptionally warm and welcoming, making us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The entire place is like a zen retreat, and the cedar hot tub was amazing - perfectly positioned under a starry sky and overlooking gardens, vineyards, and the forest. We left feeling refreshed and grateful for such a peaceful escape. Highly recommend this spot!

The muse cabin was so cozy! The little details really gave it the extra touch! Emily gave me a massage and it was so relaxing. The hot tub and shower is a bonus! They are amazing hosts and we look forward to staying again!

Hobbit Circle - Big Site
Restful Retreat - Hobbit Circle
Such a beautiful serene property. The hosts are very welcoming and the campsite has it all - privacy, spacious, a sweet little pond and dense, mature trees. The hot tub is a MUST. We were still early in the season so bugs were not an issue. Highly recommend and we will be back!
