So lovely.... This is the Perfect place to escape, unwind, write, dream, create...
I pulled off the freeway to make way to my "escape" and was instantly charmed by the cozy farms, winding roads, and large swaths of land accompanied by well-crafted homes. Upon finding the house and my proper parking spot, Kim greeted me for a tour down to the cabin. It's worth grabbing what you need at that moment as you'll be sure to get your exercise traveling up and down several flights of stairs if you don't. The glow of the field across the pond was mystical made only more so as a lone mare grazed. The crickets began to find their chaotic unison and my stress from the traffic-ridden journey melted away. If there was anything about which to complain, it would be that the window views of the meadow beyond the pond is limited through the trees, but I'd be hard pressed to take that to the owner (although I did, and he seemed open to cutting a few prominent branches). I hear a variety of birds and the distant sound of the train, the occasional caw of a Blue Heron (hoping he lands near me for a photo opp). The space is so comfortable. If you're a PNW coffee snob who forgot the freshly ground beans at home, you'll have to suffer (if the addiction is real) through a pot of Folgers (don't blame Kim, she's from Reno) because you honestly won't want to go anywhere else. The bed is so comfortable and just a steady climb away (if you haven't been overtaking in the plentiful wineries of the region). The space near the fire ring floods during the late winter/early spring and seems to remain fairly soggy for any lackadaisical wanderings in that direction, but the hillside has been mowed and a sweet outdoor spot will welcome your journal writing and appreciation of the nearby marshland. The location is close to all of the charms of Canby and Aurora and Kim has generously supplied pamphlets and calendars of the nearby activities. I will be returning soon...
Kim and Paul were exceptional in being flexible, inviting, and always checking in to accommodate any of our needs. It was perfect get away from the big city. I love that it is a true cabin experience. The toasty fire and large windows made it all very cozy. Thank you for all the delicious homemade treats and pointing us to St Josef's for wine tasting. This is a great place to play games, do a puzzle, read a book, or even doing some crafty cooking on their versatile toaster/grittle/coffee maker. I'll be sure to be back! Thanks again for everything!
Kim is a really lovely, thoughtful host and the setting she's curated is peaceful, serene, and vibrant. My partner and I stayed here seeking solitude and rest, which we found plenty of. Kim was very attentive - providing plenty of tasty snacks and details that really add color and fun. We will certainly be back!!
We had a lovely time at Cedar Cabin. While there was a problem with the toilet in the cabin, Kim graciously put us up in another building on the property. We spent plenty of time at the cabin and slept in the other building out night, so it worked out fine! We'd love to return to Aurora and Cedar Cabin!
