About Cindy Murphy

Together Cindy and her partner Mark(pictured) manage the day to day details of The Good Earth. Cindy and her brother Bob purchased the house and property together in the spring of 2012. Cindy lives in Oregon and retired in 2008 after 31 years of service with the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department. Bob lives in Northern Virginia, and retired from GSA with the federal government in 1997. Cindy is a mother, published freelance writer, and a foster kitten/cat caregiver for Brightside Animal Center. Bob is an avid reader, a history and plane buff, and a man of wit and charm. Mark is a super gifted 'jack of all trades' and keeps everything at the rental running like a well oiled machine! He usually greets all the guests personally and keeps that fire stoked just perfectly for a relaxing soak in the cedar Snorkel hot tub! Cindy and Mark are the faces you will see here at The Good Earth, and are always ready to help in any way to make sure your stay is as enjoyable and pleasant as it can possibly be.

Cindy Murphy purchased this house in 2012

Why Cindy Murphy chose Redmond

The shop, the chicken coop, raised beds, atrium, vegetation, the wildlife and colorful lizards, end of the road privacy and the view, the view, the view!! We live in this neighborhood, know and love the area, and are only minutes away to provide the best customer service possible. This is a gem of a house, and so close to everything!

What makes this house unique

Besides the majestic vista, out the back door hiking, and open space and privacy, we are also part of a small community water system in the same aquifer as Earth2O which means good clear water! There is a newly paved road, unique quiet neighborhood with no light pollution and thousands of brilliant stars in the night sky! The raised garden beds, and healthy herb gardens provide extras for summer guests who like to cook! We are only a mile away from Hwy 97, and right in the heart of outdoor recreation at it's finest. Again we remind people that this is a non smoking neighborhood, and we monitor this extremely closely due the danger of fire. If you are tempted to smoke, please consider another property.

Outdoor Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic place to stay. There were six of us sharing the house and it was more than enough room for all. The location was perfect for our outdoor adventures such as rock climbing at Smith Rock, biking the McKenzie Trail, hiking Mt. Thielson and sight seeing at Crater Lake. Mark & Cindy were perfect hosts. The fresh eggs from the resident chickens was a hoot each morning. I can't say enough good things about our stay at The Good Earth.

Owner's Response: The Good Earth is certainly centrally located to all aspects of outdoor activities as well conveniently close to town. We like to think of Central Oregon as a paradise, and apparently our guests tend to agree! Fall has officially arrived with mild days, earlier twilight and spots of color showing up in the trees. Now is the perfect time to explore local trails through the mountains and along quiet streams with the summer rush behind us. What better way to appreciate the changing seasons than to book some time at The Good Earth!? There are fresh potatoes waiting from the garden and eggs from our chicken girls! Life is good on the hill above Terrebonne!! Check us out this Fall!!

Our hosts made this stay truly outstanding with their knowledge of the area, their thoughtfulness, kindness, generosity, accessibility, and congeniality. They are perfect hosts.
The home is spacious, clean, modern, warm, inviting, and has a breath-taking view for sunsets.
This was our favorite play to stay on our vacation and we look forward to returning again and again. So many special touches kept us gasping and smiling our whole stay; we were spoiled rotten!!

Owner's Response: We certainly strive to go beyond guests expectations and are thrilled when we do! We enjoy meeting people from all over the country, or the world for that matter, and offer them what we would want if we were traveling. We think it is important to have a home that is super clean, safe, comfortable, well cared for and quiet. We treat our guests with respect and respond quickly to requests...whether it advice on restaurants, breweries or how to get pictures in the high elevation summer snow! The gorgeous days of fall have arrived in our corner of Central Oregon. Even though the official first day is September 22, we are feeling a slight chill in the evening air and the shadows are growing longer. There is still plenty of time to enjoy the trails, rocks and rivers without the crowds of summer. Visit us at The Good Earth!!!

Owner's Response: It has been a busy summer at The Good Earth! We always work hard to make the experience at our vacation rental exceptional. It is so nice when we receive reviews that let us know our guests had a wonderful time, and that our hard work paid off! Summer is winding down, and although the days are nice and warm, cooler evenings have arrived with a distant hint of fall in the air. We are so close to many places that make Central Oregon special no matter what season it is! Check out our calendar and plan a visit this fall!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5
We came over for our 15th anniversary to hike Smith Rock and to explore Bend and Redmond. The house and views were amazing and exceeded every expectation that we had. Our hosts truely cared about our experience, they had recommendations for places to go, restaurants and even left us a day pass for Smith Rock. The bottle if wine and fresh eggs were wonderful. Thank you for your hospitality and we are already planning our next visit.

Owner's Response: Since we opened The Good Earth in 2012 we have really enjoyed sharing it with people celebrating special events in their lives. We have hosted weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, and best friend escapes! As owners, we take pride in making our vacation rental one of the best that people have experienced. We live locally and know the area well, so guests can always ask for recommendations or advice if needed. Since we live just four houses down the hill we are usually around to help out with whatever will make someone's visit even better. August is coming to a close soon and we have enjoyed our busiest summer yet! We are already booking for 2015, so check our calendar and plan a visit with us in 2014 or next year!

AMAZING wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5
I'm a little late but wanted to write a review describing how AWESOME this place is! We stayed here for 3 nights the weekend of July 26th for our wedding. The rental was extremely clean, the view was great, and the hospitality from the owners topped it off! They had fresh cut flowers, champagne, and even a congratulations balloon awaiting our arrival...not to mention the hot tub ready for us after our wedding festivities. FABULOUS stay. Coudn't be more happy! Thanks again both of you for a great, very memorable weekend!

Owner's Response: One of the things we really love to do is try to make our guests stay extra special. It was so much fun getting the house and yard ready for the wedding preparation, pictures and all the celebration surrounding the big day. The Good Earth is a perfect place to celebrate life's events from birthdays and weddings to everything in between!!! A big congratulations to the happy couple!

Great place

  • 5 of 5
Thanks (again) for another great stay at The Good Earth. Our 2nd time here was just as good as the first. Great location. Our kids loved the chickens...and we loved the fresh eggs and coffee and wine. Close to Smith Rock State Park for climbing and running and to the many other great outdoor areas Central Oregon has to offer. Thanks!

Owner's Response: We love returning guests! That tells us that we are doing great things, and people enjoy what we offer well enough to book another stay! Many visiting children are fascinated with our chickens and love the ability to gather their own eggs from the nest. It is really fun to host people that enjoy a little country experience out here on a couple acres. We are rural but are less than a mile to the main highway that leads to all kinds of Central Oregon adventures! The summer solstice arrived last weekend and those long lazy warm days have settled in to stay for awhile. Enjoy a relaxing break soon at The Good Earth, and happy summer!!!

Welcome to The Good Earth! Our house is a charming super clean vacation rental with breathtaking views, located on the southern edge of Terrebonne Oregon. Our comfortable smoke free property offers all that you will need to relax and enjoy the beauty of the classic high desert. Just a note though.....if you are a smoker, PLEASE...seriously consider another property. Our entire neighborhood is non smoking due to the extreme fire danger that comes with the landscape here. Respect for our neighborhood and properties is extremely important and we monitor this very closely. You are welcome in our home but if there is ANY sign of smoking in the area we will ask you to leave with no refund. With that being said....expect to enjoy northwest wine, or local beer of your choice, organic coffee, and fresh eggs from our chicken 'girls' housed on the property. We offer a three bedroom, two bath home with a very cool atrium nook and a spacious family room to accommodate additional guests. We are located on 2 acres high above our unique local town, and just minutes away from all types of outdoor recreation activities. 4 miles south on Hwy. 97 is Redmond with a great local vibe that includes lively bars, breweries, restaurants, and spot on coffee houses. 23 miles south is Bend, a mecca to the outdoor scene, 4.5 miles to the northeast Smith Rock State Park waits for your hiking boots to hit the trails beneath golden hued climbing walls. A complementary day use pass for all local Oregon State Parks is available for use during your stay. We are 40 minutes from the unique little community of Sisters at the base of the Cascades. Sisters is the home of towering pines, cool little boutiques, a killer quilt show and popular fall folk festival. It is most importantly (to Cindy anyway) the gateway to the magic that is the timeless Metolius River. Skiing, hiking, fishing, biking, rock climbing, and boating are all within 15 minutes to an hour, as well as live theater, great wines, and over the top brewers. If you want to stay within a mile of home.....Terrebonne has some awesome local spots that we visit often. Just ask us for our very local recommendations!! We could go on about the drop dead sunsets or soaking in the hot tub under brilliant stars, but just come visit us and you will understand why we live here!
