The tent is located at the end of the stone walk, accessed from the parking spaces near the detached garage. 24 hour access to the bathroom and shower is through the main house back door (right next to hot tub), to the right, and down the hall. On occasion, bath is shared with one other Airbnb space. The house is about a 200 foot walk from the tent. All guests have full access to the park-like setting on 5 forested acres. We invite you to relax in any of the landscaped outdoor garden spaces.

Interaction with guests

This is your time to relax and unwind. As such, you are free to take a silent retreat or to visit if you would like some company. I am honored to provide as little or as much interaction as feels comfortable to you.

Other things to note

One of the best features of Heaven and Earth Retreats is the abundance of gentle wildlife out here in the country. Happy birds chirping may wake you in the morning or a soulful coyote could howl in the distance. If you have questions or concerns, please ask me.

Out here in the country, sound carries easily! Loud music or boisterous behavior disturbs the wildlife and disrupts our tranquil setting. We don’t accommodate parties or loud music, and require guests observe quiet time between 9pm and 9am.

Likewise, we appreciate your help in turning off the lights and heaters in the Glamping Tent or Sunroom when they’re not in use. Keeping our overhead low helps the environment and allows us to keep our rates affordable.

When departing the Glamping Tent:
Turn off all lights
Turn off the heater (ask for help if you need it)
Place dirty dishes in the plastic tub and bring to main kitchen.
Set garbage outside kitchen door.
Take all food with you.

Summer Fire Ban
During the summer months, usually July – September, we are under a strict fire ban due to the highly forested area and potential danger. For this reason, we regret that we absolutely cannot allow guests to use either of the fire pits during this time. Thank you for your assistance in keeping all of us safe, protecting wildlife from fire hazard and ensuring that Heaven and Earth Retreats remains green and beautiful forever.

Ruthanne's place was beyond our expectations. A really oasis, we were only sad that we didn't spend more time at the tent, but the location made for a wonderful base for exploring the coast and nearby forest, not forgetting the beautiful bike trail that start just a couple of miles down the road. Ruthanne was very helpful and although she was not there for our arrival made sure that everything was available that we would need. Again I only wish we could have had more opportunity to talk.

Great place. Nice to have our dogs with us and relax on the beautiful property. Ruthanne and her husband were so kind and accommodating. The place has everything you need and the hot tub was such a nice plus.

Even better than the pictures. Ruthanne took great care of us even though she was busy planning a yoga retreat for the same day we were checking out. She had the hot tub ready when we arrived. Cozy bedding kept us warm, although a heater is available for colder months. She has covered all of the details in making this place a comfortable stay. Lots of activities - trampolines, volleyball court, tetherball, yoga retreat space, etc. and plenty of places to sit with a book or some coffee. No access to the pond in front of the tent, but it was nice to look at and contributed to the away-from-it-all ambiance. Our dog had a great time running around the large property and we appreciated Ruthanne letting us bring him along. Wildlife is all around - we saw a doe with her two fawn as we pulled out of the driveway mid-day. That also means that, despite the luxurious comforts of "glamping" in the tent cabin, there are still plenty of bugs around. They didn't bother us much at all. Location is great: tucked along a well-maintained gravel road. Near the Banks end of the Banks-Vernonia trail, good for walking or biking, and only a short drive to Hillsboro if you forgot anything or don't feel like cooking. Overall, a great spot. We will definitely be back when we need a little weekend away from Portland.

Ruthanne does everything to make your stay wonderful. And is responsive. The glamping tent is serene, private and everything you would want to be wanted to be away from everyone. I have stayed there twice and have already reserved it for next year!

I am opening my home to share on airbnb primarily because I have spent several years creating a space filled with love, joy, peace and contentment that I would love others to experience. I am the mother of two sons and a Trauma ICU RN. I love to cook and garden. I love love love music. I am a firm believer in the power of music to transform our moods and lift out spirits. As a host, I am open to allowing for solitude or company, as each guest prefers. Only you will know when you get here. I look forward to making your stay here at Heaven and Earth Retreats everything you could wish for in a personal getaway retreat. Complimentary beer stocked in your refrig. Happy resting! Cheers-Ruthanne
