Very quiet, private and welcoming place to stay. Have stayed there twice and will stay again

John and Mikal are such great hosts, so kind and accommodating. We enjoyed their property and all of their wonderful rescue animals! We highly recommend their place!

Cute, rustic parking spot
Overall, lovely spot. The property is remote, and the parking spot is well away from the hosts’ living quarters so it felt quite private. There isn’t direct water connection but the hosts were generous enough to let us walk up to the house to fill buckets with a hose. The animals were a major hit, of course: they’re all adorable and friendly and we enjoyed feeding them snacks. The hosts are also very friendly. We enjoyed some conversations in the evenings together.
A few challenges: don’t try to arrive after dark. There’s very little service up there and the main road is very steep, windy, and narrow. We missed our turn and couldn’t turn around because we were trapped between two blind curves. Thankfully, a neighbor let us use their driveway to 3-point turn. The driveway to the property is also quite steep and narrow and unpaved. If you have a rig with low clearance and/or RWD, this spot might be hard to access. We have a 36’ skoolie and it was quite an adventure getting to the parking spot. Also of note: while the trees block most of the city lights and the sky is nice and dark, it is right in the flight path to and from PDX, so it may not be as quiet as you would expect.

John and Mikal were super welcoming and the animals are a cherry on top. The camping spot for our tent was private with no gorge noise of highway or trains. We fell asleep to delightful crickets and frogs under a starry sky. Great basecamp to explore the area and will definitely stay again next time we're in the area!
Price too high for no amenities
The price is a bit too high for a place with no amenities. Otherwise no complaints

Nice quiet place for a night. And the blackberries were ripe around the site. Host was helpful and friendly.
