About Jaime Sterling

I loved restoring the compound and I really enjoy welcoming guests to it now. In addition, I design landscapes, volunteer with the nearby city of Bandon's park and city tree projects, play the Scottish fiddle with some groups, and totally enjoy being a mom.

I grew up in California, but I prefer this wetter ocean/mountain climate. Our dry season (July - September) is a little long for me.

I am 52 and have two children who think the compound is a state park! We have a yellow lab who enjoys swims in the ponds and thinks we dug them specially for him. When he camps with us we refer to him as the 'hairy brother'.

I studied Landscape Architecture at Cal Poly, SLO, and specialize in restoring historic properties, planning rural landscapes, and designing horse properties.

I love music, and the out-doors in many forms, and I really am pleased to share this retreat with others and hear that people have been happy here.

Bring your musical instruments along. My friends and I have enjoyed many wonderful outdoor summer jam sessions in the beautiful surroundings on the mountain. Power outlets in our larger gazebo up in the meadow as well as night lighting up there.

Jaime Sterling purchased this estate in 1994

Why Jaime Sterling chose Oregon

The climate- 70-80 degree summer days up here. Quiet when the coast is windy. I have travelled the world and realize how rare it is to see the forested mountains right up to the ocean beach. I love sharing the beauty of this wild coast and having visitors relax and unwind. As a child we camped near here and I never forgot the amazing feel of the fresh rejuvenation. It is incredibly scenic and PRIVATE. You can walk the beach and maybe see one other person, then drive 12 miles and enjoy fine dining and world-class art, golf, etc.

What makes this estate unique

This mountain compound really is like your own private state park near two really nice lighthouses and two interesting towns.

At the compound you can enjoy the long mowed walking loop through the meadow to the far pond with views to the Pacific, as well as the short, scenic trails in the woods, and numerous lawns and flower gardens.

It is a treat to visit the nearby organic farms to pick produce for your meals. There is also local natural beef, poultry, fresh tuna, salmon, crab, shrimp, and honey usually available nearby.

The town of Bandon is great for buying fresh fish, shrimp, and crabbing off the dock (they will clean and cook it) for meals, and it has a REAL BOOKSTORE! It also has great restaurants, art galleries, an amazing museum, marina, and shopping. Of course, there is the world class golf resort, Bandon Dunes, and the local 9 holes at the Old Bandon Golf Links on the Beach Loop Scenic Drive, as well as the nearby Bandon Crossings Golf Course.

Port Orford, 12 miles south has the Hawthorn family's Red Fish Gallery and Restaurant with AMAZING ocean views and art.

Our Highland Woods property is near a lot of neat stuff to do, see, and eat!

Most Wonderful Family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

How do I begin to ever share the entire joy our family of 18 experienced at this wonderful Mountain Top Getaway. We range in age from 9 years old to 72 years old. This was like heaven for the 10 grandchildren. Even the little 9 and 11 year old girls were safe to go all over and explore and imagine and play with no supervision due to the incredible environment. There were plenty of spaces on this acreage for our group to do outdoor games and there was a hammock, along with the ones we brought, and a wonderful shady tree area to hang them and relax. There were horses to visit and feed. There was a baby grand piano in the 'Rogue Hall' (that is the central gathering room to cook, eat, rest and play) for the 5 granddaughters who are pianists. The uniqueness of having your own private sleeping area and yet being able to all gather together (in the 'Rogue Hall') to cook and eat and play more games, was beyond GREAT. When you ask our family grandchildren about how they feel about the trip and experience we had, they will tell you it was the BEST ever. The area by the coast was filled with many options: Jerry's Rogue River Jet boats -(incredible), beaches of great beauty, horse back riding, crabbing, fishing, hiking, BERRY PICKING very near by in an organic field. It also had other produce we could pick or buy.

Also, Jamie and her daughters along with the caretakers, were wonderful and have become our friends. Their hospitality and graciousness was above and beyond. What ever we needed, they provided. Their friendliness was over the top and impressive.

If you want to meet in a great, restful, beautiful surrounding with your large family or group, this is the place. I cannot stop thinking about it and when I look at pictures, I just SMILE with joy. So thankful God led us to 'Highland Woods Group Getaway' (which is the same place called 'Private, 80 Acre Mountain-Top Compound'. Thank you Jamie. You are the best and your Hideaway was a memory we shall never, ever forget. We most definitely would return.

Another Five Star Review!

  • 5 of 5

I appreciated all of the good reviews before I booked, so I know there are already lots of them but I'm going to add ours as well! At our max, our family reunion had 32 people and I don't think anyone felt crowded - everyone raved about it. Some family went into Bandon, some of us were happy to soak up every moment of relaxation. We loved petting the horses, looking at stars (even if only one night was clear enough to see them), cooking together, being able to have the late-night folks in a non-sleeping room to talk as loud as they wanted.

Sixes was comfortable for 6 adults. At first we thought it would be a teen room, but with genders and ages, it worked better being for adults. Enough privacy. Very impressed with how Jaime has fixed up all of the space and especially with Sixes and Coquille. Everyone told me how much they liked it, and that they wished they'd scheduled to stay longer.

Planning this trip - with over-scheduled business people and teens, people with difficulty getting vacation from work, and a long drive (5 hours from Portland, 4 from Newport, and more from Oakland) - was a pain in the neck, I am so grateful we found this place.

Jaime is an absolute pleasure to work with and the caretakers were also very nice.

Only things close to a negative - a swimming pool would make this heaven, not being able to have a campfire for Smores (fire danger right now), and I could live without the Elk head in the lodge! But the biggest negative - we had to leave!

Perfect Family Reunion Destination

  • 5 of 5

We had a 27 person family reunion and everyone had a bed! The main lodge was a wonderful gathering place, but cousins could branch off and explore. Adults and children could all have the right balance of time all together, in smaller groups or enjoy a solitary walk on the numerous paths. Some favorites included organic strawberries and blackberries on the grounds, friendly horses to pet and feed carrots to, and a large kitchen to prepare meals with enough room for everyone to eat together.

We enjoyed making day-trips to the coast and going berry picking but being able to come back to our home away from home. I was worried when I planned the trip that it wouldn't make all the age groups happy, but it turned out that the toddlers, tweens, teens, and adults had an equally good time!

A Shangri-La to Reconnect with Family

  • 5 of 5

My huge family of 19 (including 3 young kids, a baby, two teens, and my 72 year old mother) stayed here with plenty of beds for everyone and the peace and quiet that 80 acres will bring. We had had our other house cancel on us (and we didn't know of this place before) and Jaime (the terrific owner) accommodated us in this Shangi-La of Langlois. She was like a family friend hosting us for a long 4th of July weekend. The weather was terrific and the flower gardens breathtaking. We took lots of walks through the meadows and woods in pairs and in packs. The great room was perfect to accommodate our family. We even brought our two dogs. The collection of cabins up on the mountain is reteat like and since its 30 min from Bandon, you feel compelled to never leave-and why would you? The place has a rich history and now has the incredible memories that we hold. There are private cabins and a large one that still gives privacy since its so big. We would definitely come back!

Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion here. My husband and I rent the whole place as a treat for out six adult children and our grands (including two great grands!).

It really gave all the cousins a time to reconnect. What we liked best is that there was something to do for all ages. No one...not even the teenagers were bored!

We held a family dance in the gazebo up at the top of the hill one of the evenings we were there. It was so much fun, and everyone danced! Forever memories were made!!

Great group site

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 11 adults and 10 kids for three nights in August. Our time there was great. The space is beautiful and peaceful with great vistas and wonderful landscaping. Many outdoor places to sit and a hammock were highlights. Rogues Hall worked well for us as we did communal meals and the piano got some use too. We hit blackberry season just right, which was a total bonus. Hiking trails around the property got good use.

Jaime, the property owner was great to work with too and made our stay very tailored to our needs. I highly recommend what we called "the mountain compound".
