Description The Space

All through the residence there are large expanses of window that look out on the forest and creek, and skylights through which you can see the moon and stars at night.

The main bedroom is on the ground floor. The twenty-foot vaulted ceiling has a skylight over the bed and two walls of windows looking out over Soapstone Creek and the forest. It is separated from the main structure by a covered breezeway. The main bedroom has 2 beds - one queen and one full.

The main building has a kitchen and dining area, a living room with wood stove, bathroom with shower, and a washer/dryer. One entire section of the roof is a "sun roof" which makes the cabin light no matter the weather. A sleeping loft (2nd bedroom) with a built-in double bed facing the sun roof is the second level of the main building, with its own private upper deck. A staircase provides access to the sleeping loft.

"The cube” is the third level, perched forty-feet above the main floor, and aligned exactly north, south, east west. It has a built-in desk and large round windows on all four sides looking down on the creek, forest, and meadow. A short built-in wooden ladder from the loft provides access.

There is also a double futon in the main living area as well as a twin "Captain's bed".

Guests have complete access to the entire 22 acres, which include walking trails, the beautiful river with a trail right to the edge, a fire pit on the deck, and the famous "writer's cube" on top of the house. The house is in the "sun belt" in the coastal range and only 12 miles from the beach, so trips to the Oregon Coast are easy to coordinate! It is an hour and 20 minutes from downtown Portland.
