Owl Creek Cabin is a secluded mountain getaway in the Southern Cascades east of Ashland Oregon. It's a perfect place for a creative retreat where solos or couples can leave the distractions of their everyday world behind. You'll be greeted when you arrive, walk a short trail to the cabin, and be shown how to use some of its features such as the outdoor firepit, grill, and attic sleeping loft. In snow season (December to May) you'll need all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive with all-weather tires. The roads and driveway to the cabin are plowed and kept in good shape but there will be packed snow on the road at our elevation - 4600 feet. Please arrive by 8 pm. Enjoy a glass of wine or mug of cocoa around the fire pit (NOTE: September through May we provide a propane fire pit), a great way to unwind, relax and appreciate the nature around you. The cabin is stocked with dishes, and a mini kitchen with a toaster oven, microwave, refrigerator, electric kettle, and coffeemaker. A picnic table and gas grill with a skillet and saucepan allow outside cooking and dining. The outdoor soaking tub is open June thru Oct.

You can hike out the door or drive 10 miles to catch the Pacific Crest Trail, or the trailhead to Grizzly Peak with views of the Rogue Valley and the Siskiyou Mountains. Trail maps are provided.

You better check this place out!
Wow what a place. Simply stunning area of southern Oregon. Kit was the best host, very friendly and gave good advice on activities and food around area. The cabin itself is nestled in the woods about 300 yards off the road, which is great. The cabin has all you want in it, cozy is the key word. I went in the winter and it was warm inside. The loft with the bed was really cool. Definitely a place to spend time to reflect and write if that’s your thing. What a great place to decompress! Thanks. Kit!

We absolutely loved our stay at Owl Creek. Our host was kind and knowledgeable, and it is clear that he loves and cares for the area. There is so much attention to detail in this cabin. We loved the fire by the creek and the freedom to explore the woods surrounding the cabin. We definitely had privacy and felt very much at home. We were lucky to get snow as well! This was a very special place, and we appreciate Kit for being willing to share it with us.

Quaint. Quiet. Everything we needed, I wish we would have booked for longer. The cabin is only a couple hundred feet from main house but feels as though you are in complete solitude. Cabin was warm and functional, loved the tips before hand from Kit. Highly recommended to get away from society and check out.

This place was perfect for our anniversary retreat! We loved how beautiful the cabin was and the magic of the solitude and privacy! It was romantic and the cabin gave us all that we wanted for a weekend away together! It snowed while we were up there which added to the beauty of the forest and made for a really enjoyable stroll through the forest. Host was excellent before and during our stay. We will definitely be back!

Really lovely, and just the quiet retreat we needed. Perfectly set up for the kind of deep creative discussion we needed to do! (And I was able to relax with a good mystery read, written by our host!)

Cozy Winter Wonderland
Kit was a wonderful host! We enjoyed our stay and had a great time at his cabin. The property is gorgeous. This would be the perfect weekend away for winter or summer. We loved watching the snow fall outside our cozy cabin. Kit filled the cabin with thoughtful personal touches that made our stay great. Hope to return soon!
