The SpaceCome to Rog's Retreat on Puget Island to treat yourself to luxury! Or give a night or two as a gift to someone you love. Rog's Retreat guest cottage sits among our flower and vegetable gardens. The retreat sleeps four (two on the futon in the sitting room). It is equipped with hot plate, under counter refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and electric tea kettle. An outdoor barbecue with burner and fire pit enhance the experience!
A basket of fruit, snacks, coffee and tea will get your started. Plus we have popcorn to pop and s'more makings at the ready.
Rog's Retreat is ideal for a biking, kayaking or fishing trip or use as overflow lodging for your guests. Fish locally for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon (we will provide you with up to the minute fishing reports). Our island and surrounding waterways provide many miles of protected kayak paddling and 30 flat miles for bicycling. For more local kayaking information, go to (URL HIDDEN)
While you're here you can stroll around the farm, check out the flower and vegetable gardens, gather the eggs and admire our garden, whatever suits your frame of mind! Roast marshmallows over the campfire, launch your kayak from our property, bird watch from the porch or take a bicycle ride around the island. The possibilities are many and varied!
Our guest cottage is a non-smoking building with no TV reception (VCR and DVD provided). Reading and game playing are encouraged. Children are welcome as long as they remain in parental control. They will love to swing on the swing set, play horseshoes, and watch the chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys. They can also help gather eggs with the farmer! Dogs are welcome guests too!
If you are spending one night or a week, you are certain to love this cozy home away from home. Guest AccessGuests have access to our farm, you can walk among the gardens, visit the chickens, see what's going on in the greenhouses and if your stay includes Friday, during farmer's market season, you can spend the afternoon browsing the booths and listening to music. Rob bakes artisan breads and wood fired pizzas, perfect for your Friday dinner. Interaction with GuestsWe love to chat with our guests, just look us up on the farm! Or don'(URL HIDDEN) you wish. The NeighborhoodPuget Island is a lovely, serene island in the Lower Columbia River, about 50 miles downstream from Portland, OR and about 25 miles upstream from Astoria, OR. Our closest 'big' town is Longview, WA. Cathlamet is a tiny town, located in tiny Wahkiakum County. The town has a really well stocked grocery store. We also have a craft brewery (open on the weekends) and a few very basic restaurants. Our claim to fame is we have no stoplights in our county! There is a bridge from Cathlamet to the island and a small ferry from the island to Oregon. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in Wahkiakum County. Getting around the island is easily done by car, foot or bicycle. Cathlamet is about 3 miles from our guest cottage. Other Things to NoteTo clarify pricing: We charge $10/additional guest after the first two and $10/pet. The basic fee is $140/night (including taxes). If you stay 5-7 nights the fee is $700 (for two, including taxes). When you book, we will give you the total for your visit if it's different from the basic. Airbnb does not allow for us putting all this in their pricing section. Thank you for your understanding. :)
We often have a couple of young WWOOFer's (usually 18-25 years old), volunteering to help us on our farm. You might like to get to know them and hear their stories. Their accommodations are in a separate bunkhouse about 30 yards distance from the guest cottage.
