The 18+ acre woodland ranch is located right against the National Forest and Cascade Range with walking and riding trails along the year round creek and into the level and mountainous old growth forestland. Each dwelling's rustic theme based elegance combined with convenient amenities creates a fun mood and sets off Tired Dog Ranch from any other overnight accommodations. Very unique, secluded and relaxing, TDR is nestled outside a quiet community that is yearly gaining speed as an outdoor recreational paradise. This is a farm/forest compound with free range chickens, farm cats (outside exclusively, please), farm dogs and 5 equine with inherent risks. As well, due to it's location (neighboring property is National Forest), wildlife abounds and on rare occasion may be so curious or bold to venture onto the 18-acre property (deer, elk, raccoons, skunk, bear, cougar, crow, raven, etc.) so take care to protect yourself while outdoors to make your stay safe and sound. I am happy to provide tips of the trade :)
Summer rates apply starting April 1st and extend through September 31st. Winter rates start October 1st and extend to March 31st. Additional costs are charged for more than 6 in the party
Accès des voyageurs
All guests are welcome to navigate the grounds, though the large campsite fire pit in upper meadow is for campers only (unless otherwise approved by host). The wood provided is for home use, as all dwellings are predominately heated via a wood stove (with back up heaters provided). Access to the horses in the pasture and free range chickens is always fun, but at your own risk (signage posted) and with adult supervision (horses not for riding). Please keep pets with you at all times and on a leash at all times when outside of the dwellings since the chickens are free range (and costly at $50/each to replace if your pet causes it's demise). Pets and children must remain with their parents/masters at all times, and please DO NOT CHASE THE CHICKENS. The Cottage is unlocked and ready for entry upon your arrival. There is a key on the end table by the loveseat with a $15 replacement fee if not returned upon your departure. Help yourself in and make yourself at home. Please call if your arrival is after 10:00 p.m. Early arrival or late departure upon request only with $8/hour charge required via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) prior to arrival or check/cash upon arrival.

I live on the property and greet all guests if I am present at the time they arrive. I am available for questions, assistance and directions, but try to give everyone their space so they can have private enjoyment of the land... even though I'm a blast to be around if not filled with hay, oily hands or chicken poop ;). Please help yourself into the unlocked dwelling and I'll come to introduce myself and answer any questions you may have. Of course, I have my cell phone on my person at all times ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), so call if you like.
In General: If you are an outdoor junkie and love to challenge the wilderness whether it be on foot, on a bike or on a horse, fish, hunt or sit quietly, lay in a hammock down by the creek or near the long house and listen to the sounds of nature - this is the place to be! On a rainy day, there are games, books, toys, music and movies to lounge and relax with. On sunny days, nature will call you to explore!
PET & SMALL CHILDREN DEPOSIT: though Tired Dog Ranch is pet and kid friendly, sometimes accidents happen. There is a system set up through AirBNB to charge for damages/removal of property following your departure if within 14 days such an occurrence is reported.
