This is Tipi Glamping with comfy beds, Pendleton blankets, and all the luxuries of a glamping experience with a gourmet breakfast included for all. Enjoy the sound of the creek running through the property, flowers, and winding forest trails.

Sacagawea Tipi

It is a sweet location, near the edge of the forest. To one side its neighbors are tall cedar trees, on the other side it offers a filtered view of an open field.

The Sacagawea Tipi  is one of the two forest tipis we added to our collection in the spring of 2009. There are now three forest tipis, all connected by trails and within sight of each other, but with plenty of privacy space in between.

The interior of this tipi features a stone floor with wool rugs and a queen size bed - so comfortable, you might want to stay in bed and enjoy a morning of listening to the birds - or open the door and watching the deer, the wild turkeys or the flock of quail wandering by.

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.

Amenities

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 Sacagawea?

Much about Sacagawea, the only woman on the Lewis and Clark expedition into the American West, is a mystery. Daughter of a Shoshone chief, born around 1788.  At the age of 12, Sacagawea was captured by Hidatsa Indians, an enemy of the Shoshones. She was then sold to a French-Canadian trapper named Toussaint Charbonneau who made her one of his wives. Sacagawea and her husband lived among the Hidatsa and Mandan Indians in the upper Missouri River area (present-day North Dakota).

Lewis and Clark met Charbonneau and hired him to serve as interpreter on their expedition. Even though she was pregnant with her first child, Sacagawea was chosen to accompany them on their mission. Lewis and Clark believed that her knowledge of the Shoshone language would help them later on their journey.

In February 1805, Sacagawea gave birth to a son named Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. Despite traveling with a newborn child during the trek, Sacagawea proved to be helpful in many ways. She was skilled at finding edible plants. She also served as a symbol of peace — a group traveling with a woman and a child were treated with less suspicion than a group of men alone.
