Our house is in a spectacular location perched on a hill overlooking Terrebonne. Smith Rock State Park is to the northeast, Mt. Hood to the north and Mt. Jefferson to the northwest. This is a wonderful home base for families, adventurers, climbers, or a respite for the weary traveler just looking to get off the road for a bit. It is open, airy, spacious, quiet, and clean. You are welcomed with coffee beans from Mt. Hood Roasters and farm fresh eggs from our chickens when they are laying!

The space

The Good Earth is in a very unique rural location within a small neighborhood a little over 4 miles away from Smith Rock State Park. The house is located high on a hill overlooking the farm fields of the Terrebonne valley so the views of Smith Rock, the Cascades, and even a distant Mt. Hood are simply incredible. Our sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, and the stars are absolutely brilliant since there is no light pollution. We often see the space station passing over....please ask us to let you know when we get the heads up text from NASA. There are raised beds with various herbs and lettuces when in season. In addition to that we have 14 free roaming chickens that provide eggs for our guests to enjoy. This is a lovely 3 bedroom 2 bath home that will sleep 7 people. When it is not fire season we also can stoke up our wood fired soaking tub to relax in after enjoying all that the great outdoors of Central Oregon has to offer.

Guest access

The access here is the full house and yard. We are sorry but due to some past problems, the chickens, and 2 very special shop cats (not in the rental) we do not allow dogs.

Interaction with guests

We live only 4 houses away at the bottom of the hill so we are always available to answer questions, start the soaking tub, troubleshoot any issues, or provide other items that guests might need for the house. If you don't need us for anything, you won't see us other than caring for the chickens or if Mark needs supplies from the shop.

Other things to note

There is a lovely 3 mile loop trail that runs behind the house. The trailhead is marked off the gravel parking area, and takes visitors up to a sweeping view of the Cascade Mt. Range. We do have an Oregon State Park day use pass available for use during your stay. Finally, we are on a septic system so please be aware that only appropriate paper can be used at The Good Earth and we will be happy to go over that when you arrive.

The Good Earth was such a wonderful place for my family and me during a difficult trip. It was a peaceful sanctuary for us. Cindy and Mark are such great hosts. I highly recommend their place to anyone looking for a gorgeous place to stay in central Oregon.

Spacious home, nicely furnished. Gorgeous view. The area is at high risk of fire, so there's no smoking inside or outside in the neighbourhood.

Beautiful hill top home with stunning views of great plain lands and smith rock!. We liked beautiful Sun porch with small fountain, also home is filled with entertainment stuffs that we needed. We enjoyed this lively home by seeing sun set, sun rise and star gazing. This is a good opportunity to experience a beautiful landscape. Calm and quite neighborhood, trial behind home that took us to top of hill to view Mt Bachelor, Mt sisters, Mt Jefferson and Mt Hood at one glance. We loved fresh eggs that offered to us. Friendly cat kept us smiling all day. Overall home is well maintained by lovely couple Mark & Cindy. We are more than happy to stay in your home next time.

Cindy User ProfileCindy is a superhost.

I've lived in Oregon since 1977 when I was hired for a permanent job as a park ranger after college. 30 some years later, I retired from Oregon State Parks and and never left. After living mostly on the very far eastern side of Oregon I moved to the Terrebonne area in 2010. My best work ever was raising my two now grown kids but I love theater (10 years of community theater) and animals (cat foster parent and rescuer) also I am drawn to writing (luckily published in some magazines). I have traveled to England, Mexico, Israel, Italy and various places around the USA including Mardi Gras in New Orleans twice!! Now my partner Mark and I host two Airbnb places which keeps us crazy busy and it is a tad tougher to get away. I am still holding on to the idea of Scotland or Ireland someday though. We've used Airbnb a few times and loved the connections we've made there. Hopefully we can now give those great experiences back to others looking for a home base in the open spaces of Central Oregon!
