About Lin Bernhardt
The husband and wife team of Lin and Lynn love to share their little piece of heaven with others. We're passionate about caring for the land and respecting all living things. We have provided homes for a number of rescued animals including horses, chickens, goats (though not currently), dogs and cats. When away from the farm, we enjoy being in nature and taking off in our camper.
Lin Bernhardt purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Lin Bernhardt chose Talent
We were so lucky to find this property....having a gorgeous rural home on serene property so close to town....it wasn't even on the market when we purchased it! It was a place for our horses where we could grow our own hay, have a large garden, and be close to all the amazing Talent the area has to offer. Theater, art galleries, beautiful wineries, amazing music venues, lakes and rivers close by all add to why we choose to call the Rogue Valley our home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Beautiful open spaces, gardens, animals, privacy, tranquility, and a serene country setting but close in to name just a few!

We greatly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It had everything we needed, plus the dogs loved playing in the fenced yard right outside the door! It was beautiful seeing the farm covered in snow. Super easy drive to town. Thanks for having us!
Thanks for being such great guests, and good luck with the move!
Lovely, quiet, and homey
We loved our base of operations for visiting family, hiking, and seeing plays. It was comfortable and a great location. My local friend says Talent is too "citified" now, compared to when he grew up there, but we like the new restaurants and Lin's place is the opposite of citified. Great fenced (separated) yard for my dogs.
Sweet Retreat after Shakespearean Tragedies!
I came with friends to Ashland, like thousands of others, to see plays at OSF. We wanted to stay some place where we could soothe our psyches after seeing two tragedies, and we knew a motel wasn't going to fit the bill. Lin and Lynn's Shady Grove Farm was perfect! Our first afternoon, we sat in the cottage's large back yard, soaking up the spring sun and enjoying talking to the turkey, rooster, horses and our lovely hosts. The next afternoon we were greeted "home" by Zephyr and Tyler racing around the hay field, kicking up their heels with joy and freedom. Just what we needed after 3 hours of Othello! Lin and Lynn are warm and welcoming hosts, and are also caring stewards of their animals, property and community -- these are good people! Definitely will recommend Shady Grove to others, and will return in the future. Thanks Lin and Lynn!
Wonderful, peaceful place
Very shaded area so even with the heat we stayed cool. Peaceful pond on the grounds, with chickens and horses and dogs. Fully stocked kitchen. Most of all, very nice people. Would return.
My wife and I have been members of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival since 1984, and have been visiting the Ashland area since the late 1970s. We haven't stayed everywhere there is to stay, of course, but we have certainly dipped our toes in many different types of places. Usually, the plays and an occasional outstanding meal dominate our memories, but once in a while the place where we stay is also remarkable. Shady Grove Farm offered one of our more memorable experiences. We are rural people, have our own large garden, and are quite used to country life. Lin and Lynn made us feel immediately at home. They were welcoming and generous, but also very discrete and not intrusive, though just around the corner from the cottage. The cottage itself is extremely comfortable and well-appointed. The kitchen is large, and we actually took all but one of our meals in it, which is quite a change for us. There are chickens, and chickens make noise, to be sure ... but it is the type of noise that we find natural and reassuring. I mention it because it is about the only noise you are going to hear. Lovely. We will return, and we seldom say that.
Thank you for the sweet review! We so enjoyed hosting you. It's folks like you that make us glad we're doing what we do!
Magical Place That Fills Your Heart !
It is hard to put into words the feeling of staying at the cottage on this enchanting farm.Whether it was our smiles when seeing the two proud family of geese pararde by the lovely pond, with their goslings or the sunlight filtering through the budding trees while walking down the lane, or maybe the dramatic clouds on the nearby mountain vistas, made everyday a joy. The cottage itself was very confortable and well appointed for our month long stay.Our hosts Lynn and Lin were very gracious and attentive to any needs we had, including fresh organic eggs ! Being animal and nature lovers it was a treat to be living amongst horses, all the feathered friends and of course , Jack , the Great Pyrenees, greeting us everyday. I wish there was a 10 star rating, as I would gladly give it,
