Hiawatha Tipi

Deep in the forest where the deer bed down for the night - and yet within distant sight of the other forest tipis - make this tipi your home for a restful sanctuary. The forest offers a deep healing silence that we all need to retreat to in order to recover our senses from the noisy and rushed world in which we spend our daily lives.

In this deep silence you can hear your soul speak to you.

The colors of the interior are kept warm and vibrant, and just like the other forest tipis, it has electricity - and the light at night turns the tipis into magic lanterns. A cozy down comforter provides a warm bed for all those cool summer nights. 

Tipi Village Retreat

Tipi Village Retreat is a haven away from the ordinary. With its secluded woodland setting, its unusual mix of dwellings (seven tipis, the Garden Cottage, the Studio, the Cabin in the Woods, and the Master Bedroom Suite), and its friendly hospitality -  it provides an ideal setting for group retreats, family reunions, weddings or commitment ceremonies, celebrations of life, workshops and other overnight events. It is a great place for any adventurous traveler wanting a unique lodging experience.


All tipis are furnished in a Zen style. They have beautiful stone floors with rugs, warm and comfy beds with down comforters and wool blankets for the cool Oregon summer nights. For a more traditional sleeping experience, please take a look at our cabin. All tipis and cabins have access to a centrally located modern bath house with two full bathrooms.

Some important site amenities include a pristine forest with hammocks to enjoy the forest sounds, a clear-blue, fresh water low flowing creek with a kiddie pool, a dining room, the nearby swimming hole, a group fire pit, a spacious hot tub, a parking lot, and a restaurant.

Breakfast is served either by the creek or on the patio. Your stay includes a wholesome gourmet breakfast of organic free-range eggs, smoked salmon, breads, hot cereals,  fresh fruit, milk, yogurt, orange juice, coffee and tea.

For 2021, we’ve closed some of our tipis to allow more space for social distancing, and since meals have always been served out-of-doors, we’re still able to provide our usual level of services to guests. Meals will not be served buffet style to limit exposure due to the pandemic. Food will be served by staff.

Location and Activities

The question is... what can't you do? We're located in Mohawk Valley near Eugene, Oregon, and perfectly positioned for adventure. We're in a central location so there are beautiful day-trip destinations to the North, East, West, or South — may they be on two or four wheels. 

Eugene offers a small metropolis of activity -- Saturday Market, the Hult Performing Arts Center with the annual Bach Festival, the University of Oregon, the Oregon Country Fair, the Olympic Trials - besides miles and miles of bike paths.

The gorgeous Oregon coast is only 75 minutes west.

The Cascade Mountain Range, just 45 minutes east.

Portland to the north, Ashland to the south and, in between, some of the most gorgeous scenery in the country.

There are plenty of quiet activities to do right here at the retreat, but if you're interested in more, we're happy to help you plan nearby day trips.

You can find fishing, wine-tasting, rock climbing, rafting, theatre, bike-riding, running, waterfalls, shopping, museums, music, hiking, boating, birdwatching, and fine dining.

Day Trips

We can suggest a variety of day trips – all guaranteed to leave you with a memorable experience. Most of these destinations can also be reached on two or four wheels. Adventures vary from hiking to a pristine mountain waterfall or through an old growth forest to visiting an old mining ghost town – or dining at one of Oregon’s best wineries.

One of the closest destinations to us is Shotgun Creek Recreation Area. It is 7-10 minutes away and features lush evergreen trees, waterways, and creeks. It also offers hiking trails, picnic tables, large group shelters, horseshoe pits, volleyball and softball fields, and a swimming area.

You can also adventure to:

- The western cowboy town of Sisters, OR (great burgers here!) and the famous Lava Fields

- The Oregon Coast (get some fresh seafood here, especially in the coastal town of Florence) and Sand Dunes

- King Estate Winery and the spectacular Kentucky Falls

- Bohemia Mountain (also an easy dual sport ride to an old goldmining “ghost town”) and Umpqua River

- Warm Springs Indian Museum (get a really good sense of the area’s Native American history here)! Be sure to also check out the nearby Metolius River!

- Snow covered Mt. Hood. Lunch at the beautiful Timberline Lodge and follow the different but equally curvy and beautiful roads through Silverton, Sweet Home, and Crawfordsville back.

- Lilian Falls

- Crater Lake National Park - Oregon’s blue gem in the mountains, a site of incredible beauty. This is a long day ride but worth it to see the spectacular vistas of the lake.

Who Was Hiawatha?

According to legend, the Iroquois had been a unified tribe under Algonquin domination. They escaped and migrated to upstate New York where they broke into various fractions that began to fight amongst each other causing immense devastation. One day the messenger De-ka-nah-wi-da came to the area bearing a message of happiness and peace. He had a plan from the Sky God himself to bring about peace to the people. As he flowed down the river in his stone canoe he saw two men on the shore and went to them. It turns out one was a warrior and the other had run from his village after it had been attacked. He asked them to bring him to their chief for he had a plan to save the people, this chief was Hiawatha.

When Hiawatha heard the plan that De-ka-nah-wi-da envisioned, he embraced it and began to work at what he could do to unite the tribes into one peaceful nation.

Ken has created a special secluded island in the woods for rest a relaxation. I felt comfortable and calm all weekend long. The hot tub was extra hot, the coffee was extra tasty and the tipi’s felt warm and inviting. 10/10 would recommend to all my friends and family.
