Location + Surroundings

This glamping site is a haven away from the ordinary. Located in the Mohawk Valley near Eugene, Oregon, it is perfectly positioned for adventure. There are beautiful day trip destinations to the north, east, west, or south, and it’s up to glampers whether they travel by two or four wheels.

With its secluded woodland setting, its unusual collection of tipis, and its friendly hospitality, this Oregon glamping site provides an ideal setting for group retreats, family reunions, weddings, workshops, and other overnight events. It is a happy place for children of all ages, as well as for the adventurous traveler wanting a unique lodging experience.

The hosts built this beautiful tipi village together. Ken is from Upstate New York, and Susanne is from Germany. They brought this sacred space of tipis together with this beautiful forest by the creek, and once it was finished, they wanted to share the outcome. The results is a place that feeds the hungry—a stunning sanctuary for the soul. Read More

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Wine tasting
  • Biking
  • Kayaking/Canoeing
  • Whitewater rafting

Time takes on a different meaning out here. Guests will feel themselves relaxing into a slower pace—into the here and now of birds singing and water flowing. If guests sit still, they can observe the wild flock of quail, the occasional pheasant, or the wild turkeys and deer coming through on their daily routes. In the spring, it’s common to spot elk bulls grazing at the edge of the forest, and in the fall Oregon Chinook salmon swimming upstream in the creek. This is an amazing chance to experience nature’s silence and stillness. Glampers will find an atmosphere of respect within these tall trees.

Guests can simply move into the village and focus on having fun with the kids. They can go treasure hunting in the creek, hike to the swimming holes, or even bring a book and read in one of the hammocks. If guests are in search of adventure, there is hiking right on site or in the nearby Cascades, where glampers can hike a mile of the Pacific Crest Trail. Other things glampers can enjoy include hot springs, whitewater rafting on the McKenzie River, wine and beer tasting in and around Eugene, and even some yoga retreats that take place on site. If interested in the yoga retreat details, please message the host.

Eugene offers plenty of recreational sports. It boasts miles and miles of running and bike paths, as well as the Olympic Trials every four years. There is also a well-known Saturday Market and the Bach Festival in July. Glampers can also take advantage of the yearly Oregon Country Fair. The Oregon coast is just an hour and a half to the west, and the Cascade Mountain Range is just 45 minutes east. Portland, Oregon, is just two hours to the north, and Ashland is located to the south.
