$850 / 1br - 600ft2 - Cozy cabin in a secluded valley (Umpqua National Forest)

Studio cabin with all the amenities of modern life including washer/dryer, hook-up installations for telephone, satellite TV and Internet (activated at your expense), plus wood stove. The cabin rents for $850/mo + utilities. Work-trade at $15/hr possible at times.

* easy access to trails for hiking and mountain biking

* nearby creeks and rivers, swimming holes, and a reservoir

* access to a large organic vegetable garden

The occasional work-trade opportunity is ideal for nature-loving couples with independent income, who don't mind solitude, and who are ready for a long-term commitment. Specifically, for the work/rent exchange we are looking for people who are self-motivated, responsible and reliable, and have experience with good references in most of the following:

* irrigation repair and maintenance/water supply system

* forestry, mainly experience clearing brush, falling small trees and chipping for fire protection

* basic carpentry, plumbing and electricity

* some automotive mechanical know-how

* organic gardening

* animal care: two sheep, chickens, and 2 large breed dogs—1 Akbash and 1 Anatolian Shepherd. Due to their size it takes somebody who loves dogs and is not intimidated by them. (Once properly introduced they are very friendly.)

* and a handyman for any imaginable, or even unimaginable, circumstance

Non-smokers only, please.
