1+ bedroom garden cottage in serene country setting
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!

Very Nice Place
Wonderful natural small farm setting. Only two minutes to Talent and ten minutes to Ashland. The hosts are great. My first choice the next time I visit the area.
While this property is older, we found the location and amenities to be enjoyable. Lin was easy to work with and made our stay very nice.
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.
This small hay farm is located in a stunning country setting with large ponds surrounded by old willows and other mature trees. The farm produces hay and has an organic garden and orchard and rescued animals including horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
Shady Grove Farm is centrally located yet walking distance to the quaint village of Talent. It's easy access from Interstate 5 and just minutes to Ashland, Jacksonville and Medford. In 10 minutes you can be at a Shakespeare Festival Play or hiking up Wagner Butte. Walk to a play at the Camelot Theater right here in Talent and/or dine at one of several good restaurants in Talent. We offer a private vacation cottage with comfy queen bed, a full kitchen, and large back yard. We also offer a permitted/licensed vegetarian bed and breakfast suite in the main house, a studio with kitchenette, and a bunkalo (safari tent) in the summer.
