Farm to Tent Cabins

Glamping Tent Cabins at Willow-Witt Ranch in Ashland, Oregon

Glamping Tent Cabins at Willow-Witt Ranch in Ashland, Oregon 07.29.2020

The hardest part of staying at Willow-Witt Ranch will be leaving. This sprawling 445-acre property in Southern Oregon is part organic farm, part campground, part wellness retreat, and wholly relaxing.

You can pitch your own tent or opt for one of the four lovingly appointed canvas tent cabins (we will not say glamping, oh, damn!). The tent cabins have patios, artisan touches, super cozy beds, and a wood-burning stove. They’re also well spaced for privacy, though expect deer to pass by. For a less rustic option, stay at the four- to six-person Farmhouse Studio on the property, with loft sleeping, a modern kitchen, and a private patio.

Willow-Witt is only about 25 minutes from downtown Ashland, yet entirely off-grid, powered by solar and micro-hydro power. Reuse and recycle is in vogue here … and the communal kitchen is spotless and well organized for health, safety, and social distancing. There’s morning yoga in the meadow. There’s private outdoor showers. There’s also very well-kept main bathrooms (important!).  Take a walk around the trails and check out the farm store, where you can pick up fresh eggs from the on-site hens, goat milk, and other provisions, including some really sweet postcards. 

BONUS: While Willow-Witt’s tiny farm store has some good primary provisions like eggs, for more complete food and drink offerings, swing by the Ashland Food Co-op in downtown Ashland. And explore downtown Ashland's 100-acre urban oasis, Lithia Park. Beautifully designed, the park follows Ashland Creek, and is a gathering haven for locals and visitors seeking woodland, greenery, duck ponds, waterfalls, wildlife, sycamore tree groves, seclusion, and hiking trails. There’s also a Japanese tea garden.
