Retreat here on my 6 acres of madrone forest with pastoral views, deer trails, 2 meditation labyrinths- yet only 3 miles to the quaint, historic town of Jacksonville, Oregon, home of the Britt Festival, 35 minutes to Ashland and 1.5 hours to Mt. Shasta and Crater Lake. This apartment is in the lower level of my house with a separate driveway to it and access to the hot tub back by the garden. Book a Tibetan bowl, crystal bowl and gong session with Claudia for $55 during your stay. Simply divine!
This comfortably furnished, recently renovated, private entry apartment with huge windows in the lower level of my house, consists of one bedroom, one bath and a Great Room area with Kitchenette which includes an induction hotplate, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave and a compact 4.5 cu. ft., refrigerator with cookware basics for meal preparation, see photos. This space also includes a dining area and daybed to sleep another person. I also have a Pack n Play available for infants and toddlers. There is a large private deck with George Foreman grill and outdoor seating for your use and to further enjoy the views. This is a special quiet sanctuary place where deer, turkey, quail and birds abound. You can stay here, get away from it all, recuperate, de-stress and discover your true self among the nature trails and your own peaceful meditation spot. Gaze at the zillions of stars at night. A full moon night is extraordinary. Commune with nature. Relax in the therapeutic hot tub, de-stress in the massage chair, release what no longer serves you and melt into bliss with a sound healing session, or just sit on the deck, read and sip a beverage. It is a smoke free environment with easily operable windows, no chemical cleansers or air fresheners used and organic cotton sheets on all beds. A Hepa air purifier comes in the unit. There is a comfy queen size bed with memory foam topper and down comforter in the large bedroom and a twin size day bed in the Living Room area. Black out curtains are on all the windows if you like sleeping in. Since the elevation here is 2,200 feet it is several degrees cooler in the summer and it's above the fog that lies in the valley in the winter. The town of Jacksonville still lies in the fog belt. It's sunnier up here in winter. The covered porch is shaded and cool most of the time. And an electric grill is there to use all year round. It's like Ireland in winter (wet season) and South of France in summer. Gorgeous all year.

The fenced garden is private for the owner as is the main house although you may pick herbs such as oregano, thyme and rosemary year round by the front of the house to enjoy in meals. You may find a few fresh organic garden fruits or veggies in your welcome basket too.
Caution though there is poison oak in some of the forested areas so be careful. It's common in wooded areas in this region. None near the apartment.

I love nature, spirit and the environment. My passions are gardening, cooking organic food, hiking, cycling, rafting, traveling, designing, meditation, yoga, playing Tibetan & crystal bowls and gong in my private sound studio here and loving the Oregon lifestyle. If you are my guest at my retreat sanctuary you enter a mystical world of nurturing energy.Many stay with me to check out the area to possibly move here. Actually quite a few do decide to call it home. So whether you are here to visit the wine country, go to the Britt Festival, Shakespeare Festival or just wanting to retreat with meditation walks, hot tub, massage chair, sound healing sessions and yoga, I can accommodate you. And I'm always happy to discuss my favorite places in the area to discover. Life is a beautiful journey when spirit calls and you listen.
