The Space

This is a stand alone dwelling tucked away behind a large lawn and nearest to Gray Creek (west property line) with evergreens and corkscrew willows adorning its front yard, an orchard filled with cherry, pear, apple and plum trees, and grape and kiwi arbor. The gravel driveway is just past the hen house (literally where the hens sleep in the evening, though are free-range during the day) to the right as the driveway levels out (double lights are on the front of the building over the sliding barn door).

The rear section (where you access) is where the living is, front section is the art space that also has an extra antique 3/4 full bed, Bowflex and free weights, TV and rocker, storage for artistic fun and in general just a cool place to crash for an extra $40/night for access to the space – You will need to bring your own paints, canvas and clay if you want to get your art game on. Use of the kiln is scheduled outside of the booking with additional charges for use of that service. Call for more details.

The living space has a bathroom with shower and toilet (full glass paneled door from the 1930’s with opaque curtain for privacy), the Studio space (15′ x 19′) has a TV with Roku, padded chair, small custom made (high school project with chess/checker inlay) and two chairs, kitchen sink (re-purposed 1940’s range for brushing teeth and washing dishes), 4-burner 24″ propane stove with oven and built-in microwave/fan/light, 9.2 CF fridge, coffee maker, toaster and all the cook and serve, dish, silver and glassware needed for a “turn key” space.

The queen bed is comfy and there is a chest of drawers. Tired Dog Ranch is a retreat with four other stand alone dwellings on this diverse 18 acre parcel. Nearby is a pasture with three horses, a mule and sheep and to the far section of the property is a large level meadow used as a campgrounds in the summer with basketball Pavillion, “Glamping Station” with full service kitchen and 4 showers, composting toilets and a central fire pit.

I am on the grounds in the big green metal clad house, tucked behind another rental dwelling. I keep very private, though am typically around and nearby if you need me.

Guest Access

Your rental space is the BACK 1/2 of the structure. IF you would like to rent the front 1/2 for an additional $40/night, please request prior to your arrival. It is equipped with an antique 3/4 full bed with new 48″ x 75″ memory foam mattress, TV with Roku, exercise equipment (bowflex and free weights), 1950’s formica table and 4 swivel stools, 2 potter’s wheels and kiln, 2 converted 1940’s stoves used for storage of art supplies, cement and padded area rug floor around table and bed – roller doors to a 8′ x 12′ cement patio and front courtyard.

Other things to note

The sink in the Studio section is run on a dedicated tankless propane HWH, the sink in the front Art section has it’s own deep sink with HWH as well. If you use the front sink, do not put clay down the drain – not good for the septic. No tampons or feminine pads can go down the septic either!
