About the Retreat
Tipi Village Retreat LLC is a haven away from the ordinary. Located in the Mohawk Valley near Eugene/Oregon, Tipi Village Retreat is perfectly positioned for adventure. There are beautiful day-trip destinations to the North, East, West, or South — may they be on two or four wheels. With its secluded woodland setting, its unusual mix of dwellings (seven tipis, the Garden Cottage, the Studio, the Cabin in the Woods, and the Master Bedroom Suite), and its friendly hospitality - it provides an ideal setting for group retreats, family reunions, weddings or commitment ceremonies, celebrations of life, workshops and other overnight events. It is a great place for any adventurous traveler wanting a unique lodging experience. ( watch the video tour )
The tipis are furnished in a Zen style. They have beautiful stone floors with rugs, warm and comfy beds with down comforters and wool blankets for the cool Oregon summer nights. For a more traditional sleeping experience, there are the cabins or the rooms. All tipis and cabins have access to a centrally located bath house with two full bathrooms. The Master Bedroom Suite and the Studio have their own private bathrooms. There is an additional bathroom available in the main house.
Breakfast is served either by the creek or on the patio. Your stay includes a wholesome gourmet breakfast of organic free-range eggs, daily delivered by our own chickens, smoked salmon, breads, granola or muesli, fresh fruit, milk, yoghurt or soy drink, orange juice, coffee and tea. Ken also cooks up some amazing Spanish Paella feasts in the outdoor kitchen. Dinners are available by prior arrangement.
Time takes on a different meaning out here. You feel yourself relax into a slower pace – into the here and now of birds singing and water flowing. - If you sit still, you 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 we see elk bulls grazing at the edge of the forest, and in the fall Oregon Chinook salmon swimming upstream in the creek. - If you sit still, you will experience nature’s silence and stillness. You will find an atmosphere of respect amongst these tall trees. Respect for the Land, the Keepers of the Land, all Living Creatures, and for Mother Nature.
“It is a paradise, a sanctuary for the soul.” (Mireille Pertusot, August 2007)
“Sleeping in the tipi under that hide was so much fun, the paella was amazing, and I know that the children were nothing less than enchanted by the paths through the woods... hearing about your place was what made my older daughter decide to come with us that weekend – so I had her there for my marathon, thanks to you!” (Ona, with Eamon, Sophie and Maeve, May 2008)
