Looking for a quick cycling adventure get away from the busyness of Portland, we frolicked to a Middle Earth like setting to this quaint shire corner of Cottage Grove. We were met at the door with a wonderfully warm hospitality greeting from the host and hostess, putting us into an instant bucolic mood. Looking around, we immediately found ourselves in a very peaceful forested setting, meticulously well groomed landscaped homestead with many floral items to see and creatures to look for. Rooms are cozy with thoughtful appointments that were peppered throughout for the curious to see. As a hobbit's desire to relish of sorts, during our short one day visit, my wife and I felt the stresses of Portlandia melting away with the enjoyment "fellowship of the ring" of Harry and Kathe Take advantage of the "tour de forest" with Harry and explore a nested gold nugget of Oregon. Don't be surprised to hear some folklore and having conversational fun if that is your desire. Evening snacks and the smell of morning breakfast replaces your anticipated alarm clock ritual for a gentle awakening and with anticipation of what next there is to see and have. Freshly roasted and brewed coffee awaited us with a grand morning smile from the caring takers that work so well together in harmony. As a result our anticipation of a grand breakfast experience, allowed our imagination to get ahead of us. Indeed, we were not to be disappointed, finding well portioned courses of delectably prepared gourmet styled food. We came to a conclusion that the breakfast would not of tasted as grand without the presence of Harry and Kathe's warm hearts anticipating our next serving needs throughout the "spread". Of course we were not to be disappointed without a topping off of our beverage of choice. We are sure if we were to ask for second breakfast or even elevenses, they would have found a way to accommodate! We left refreshed, our bellies filled, and a gathering of fond memories to pass on to friends and sojourners. One word of caution; consider bringing loosely fitted shoes. Upon leaving, we found our feet a little larger and hairier....mmmm....could it be the wonderfully tasting fizzy water that comes from their well?!
Bring loosely fitted shoes and an extra jug for water!

This review was so much fun to read. As for the loose fitting shoes, let me assure future guests that our wonderful pure soft water will NOT lead to excessive hair growth on your feet unless you are a knome.
