Located in the mountains above Ashland, Oregon, this cozy, private cabin is a perfect getaway for couples, and for solos looking for an inspiring retreat to write, or to work remotely. It offers warm solitude, comfort, fresh air, and plenty of wildlife in a natural setting where you’ll see deer, chipmunks, forest birds, and hear a Great Horned Owl hoot at night. There is satellite internet service - the speed is good for basic use but not for streaming movies and games. The cabin is non-smoking. 

During months with snow you’ll need all-wheel drive and winter tires for the mountain roads and our driveway.

The cabin property is adjacent to public land managed by the BLM, and near recreational areas with miles of hiking trails including the Pacific Crest Trail. Kayak or canoe on nearby lakes, or visit Crater Lake just a little over an hour away. Local trail guides are provided.

Regarding protection from Covid-19:

Owl Creek Cabin is surrounded by forest and plenty of distance from the few neighboring homes or cabins. To provide our guests with a safe, clean, sanitized space, we follow these safety practices:

• All surfaces, appliances, rails, switches and doorknobs are sanitized  with a  non-toxic disinfectant spray

• Bed, kitchen and bath linens are freshly laundered and hot-dried

• Dishware and utensils are dishwasher-cleaned between guests

• The cabin is thoroughly aired between guests

You’ll still be greeted when you arrive and briefly introduced to some of the features in the cabin. You’ll find a key and a laminated guide to cabin features and “how-to's” on the desk. If you have any questions, you can reach us by phone or email and we’ll get back to you promptly.

My night at owl cabin

I found the Owl Creek Cabin through Hipcamp which I hadn’t used before and a friend recommended. I was planning a trip from Monterey to Portland and Ashland is the best halfway point to stay the night. The pictures of the cabin drew me in. I was looking for a place that was quiet and peaceful outside of Ashland. When I arrived it was exactly what I was hoping for. It was nice to be in a such a secluded environment with all of the comforts. When I woke up in the morning, I walked outside to take in the morning air and interesting to say, the first sound I heard was an owl. Kit, the host was gracious and made me feel welcome. I look forward to returning next year with my girlfriend..

The Owl Creek cabin is a tiny little haven. Kit and Chris have done a beautiful job building this little retreat. The bed is comfortable and cabin cozy. The fire pit really brings it all together!

Kit was helpful and welcoming when we arrived and otherwise respected our privacy.

Loved it!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful night’s stay at the Owl Creek cabin. Kit provided detailed driving directions and met us upon arrival. There was fresh snow on the ground and Kit had shoveled us a path for us and made sure the cabin was warm and cozy. We’d love to come back and stay here again!

This Cabin was the perfect getaway that we were looking for. It was absolutely stunning in the snow, we were warm and cozy in it even though it snowed heavily during our stay. It had all the amenities we needed for a 3-day stay. Kit is a very helpful host and he made sure we had everything we needed. Great location for a day trip to crater lake NP. All the roads were plowed leading to the cabin, no issues even after a blizzard.

Beautiful spot! We had such fun snowshoeing, sledding, and building a snowman on the property! We had wonderful camp fires and listened to an owl hoot in the evening. The cabin stayed super cozy and was beautiful. Kit was so welcoming and provided us with a bunch of wood for the camp fire.

We had the most incredible weekend getaway in the snow! Kit and Chris have the cutest little cabin in the back of their property. It's clean, eco friendly and inspires creativity! I was so relaxed I stayed up late into the night writing and drawing. It turned into an writing adventure for me! The warm hospitality, surrounding wilderness and evening fires made it one of the best trips we've had in a long time. Highly recommended. We'll definitely be returning!

Literally, the perfect writer's retreat. As an author with a new book underway, I had selected this place not knowing it was owned by and created for the writer in mind. It's got everything you need to stay comfortable and creative, and nothing you don't. Few distractions, but ample opportunity to explore if desired. The kitchen space is truly tiny so be prepared (micro, not mini, fridge) -- You will need to utilize the provided cooler if you bring your own food. I brought my backpacking cooking gear just in case, and that saved the day. The only thing that could really make this place better would be a soaking or hot tub, but I was told as I left that it's in the works ;)

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay in the Owl Creek Cabin this weekend. The cabin is private and beautifully crafted next to a stream with lakes within walking distance. Kit was a great host. We would definitely come back this summer!
