Meadow House Near Crater Lake South Entrance, Upper Rogue River, 100 Acre Trails

Adults-only vacation home in Prospect
The Meadow House is named for the expansive meadow it is sited on, and for it’s amazing views and surrounding abundance of natural beauty and wildlife.

Located on the historic 100-acre Katydid Ranch in the rural Cascade mountains, (1 mile from the Rogue River, 28.9 miles from Crater Lake south entrance), this 2-story house is nestled between old timber forest woodlands and meadow. A Protected Wildlife Habitat Area, it includes two large ponds, miles of walking/hiking trails, the equine barn and bunkhouse. Owners also reside on the ranch. Available during all four seasons, the Meadow House is as spectacular in the snow-covered winter as it is in the warm weather of summer.

INTERIOR. The Meadow House (part of the historic Katydid Ranch of the early 1900's), has been rebuilt with custom details throughout and is a lovely way to enjoy extra creature comforts indoors while taking in gorgeous views of meadows and mountains through its many windows. Hardwood floors throughout, custom cabinetry, granite counters, large tiled bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace (living room) and a large bright kitchen (set up for convenience of meal preparation) provide quality comfort.

Take your pick of the upstairs spacious master (king sized bed-new and very comfortable) or the downstairs corner bedroom (queen sized bed-also new and comfy) which is located next to a full bath. Additionally, there is a small private sleeping room located off the upstairs enclosed balcony which we dub the "eagle's nest". It's a small loft room with a double/full bed and works for a single person or two teenagers that share a bed. The Eagle's nest is small and probably not comfortable for an adult couple.

The house is in pristine condition, designed for comfort, and offers views all around. The wrap around deck is great for reading, relaxing, or barbecuing. It's also wonderful at day end for enjoying a glass of wine and waiting for the wildlife to visit.

OUTSIDE. Just outside the front door, guests will find the entrance to the “pinecone trail” which leads up a small hill to a secluded sanctuary perfect for star-gazing (the night skies are magnificent!) or side-by-side hammock-style relaxation, and a cozy camp-fire pit. It's a very short walk back to the house if you decide to spread out your tablecloth for a romantic picnic on the knoll. At summer end, the ranch berry bushes are available to guests in abundance. Pick enough for your special treat of sweet wild blackberries when in season.

WINTER. On a winter day, you might see wild turkeys and deer browsing in the meadow and then catch the elk coming in for moonlight grazing after dusk. The winter months bring clear cold crisp weather and there is nothing more gorgeous than when the fresh blanket of snow covers the meadow. That’s when it’s time to cozy up to the wood-burning fireplace and relax as you watch the gentle white flakes fall.
Crater Lake National Park offers free ranger-guided snow-shoe walks on weekends and even loan you the snow-shoes! Snow-mobiling and cross-country skiing are popular too. We love spotting all of the animal tracks in the snow!

SPRING. Wildflowers, bulbs, and by the end of May, the Iris are blooming. The meadow grasses are lush with spring showers and warming weather. A gorgeous time of year to visit.

SUMMER. During the summer months the meadow is shared with the ranch horses for daytime grazing who return to the barn at day end just in time for other wildlife visitors to arrive.

FALL. End of summer visitors are invited to indulge in the abundance of wild-blackberry picking (usually beginning by mid-August and lasting through most of September) If you can actually get the sweet berries in a bucket (supplied) you might decide to make a pie later on, or serve them over ice-cream. Yum! If not, just eat them off the bush and enjoy!

Relaxing is an important all-season activity, but not to the exclusion of hiking the numerous trails, bird/wildlife spotting, horse shoes, mountain biking, visiting the ponds, or checking out the old Boise-Cascade tree nursery on the property.

Guests are welcome, if they wish, to join us at the barn at feeding time to enjoy that special time of day with the horses and say hello to the owners whose home is also situated on the meadow; close enough to be available for any unexpected needs and far enough for privacy.

Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Beautiful place to get away from it all
This property was everything we love. We found it both roomy and homey. It’s well appointed and close to lots of beautiful country to explore. Dan and Barbara were very accommodating and the information they gave us about the area was excellent. Crater Lake was stunning but the ‘hidden gems’ ie: all the waterfalls in the area were incredible too. Would love to come back and stay longer!

5/5 Excellent

Paradise in the woods
Our family had a wonderful stay at Barbara's home. The location was perfect! The house was beautiful. She had a fire-it ready to go for us. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with everything needed to cook a nice dinner. Waking up to horses in the yard was such a treat. I highly recommend this property if visiting Crater Lake area.

5/5 Excellent

Sister's getaway
Only one regret, wish I would've booked the whole week! So much to do & see. Barbara is a gem. Full of info & ready to share. Thank you for sharing your slice of Heaven with us, and of course, Buck. We'll be back for sure.

Excellent Location
Enjoyed the quiet location and access to walking trails on the property. Having our coffee while watching the deer graze out the window each morning was lovely. Location to Crater Lake was also excellent.

5/5 Excellent

Healing week!
This was an absolutely beautiful property. Every detail is thought of and well thought out. It was a very healing week for my friends and I. We got to put the horses, walk around the property and enjoy time from the many balconies. I would highly recommend satying here and Barbara is the best. She taught me (via phone) how to build a fire in our fireplace and was always so responsive. It truly felt like an adult summer camp. I cannot wait to stay there in the summertime! We miss you Barbara, Cheyene and Raya <3
