Welcome one and all to Dunmovin'. The Cottage you will be staying in has a 40's vibe, but still has the creature comforts we have all come to expect. Don't forget your fishing pole, this property is on the banks of the Wild and Scenic Rogue River. Lounge by the pool, feed the geese, go shopping, or head to any of the amazing restaurants that are just around the corner. I'm in the city limits, so everything is a minute or two away. It's my slice of heaven and I'm sharing it with you..
The main house at Dunmovin' was first built in 1946 as a Fishing retreat. Over the years the original owners moved in full time and began to add on to it. After several renovations The Cottage emerged. It is separated by a breezeway from the main house, where I live.
I'm a big fan of interesting furniture and random things, so The Cottage has evolved with a 40s vibe, and yet it does have free Wifi, a vintage workstation, hot showers, and a super comfy queen bed. I list it as optimal for 2 people but 4 have stayed in it with no issues, especially kids (who are like puppies and can sleep anywhere). I do have a queen and twin size AeroBed if needed.
New this year (2017) I have collected a vintage inspired mini-kitchen. I always have included a microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, and small refrigerator, but now I have a small antique cabinet that stores neatly in the massive closet. It has a beautiful marble counter and backsplash. I've invested in a top of the line induction cooktop that is quite nice to cook with (I tried it out). I supply the pots and pans, cooking utensils, prep bowls, linens, and most every thing you might need to create your stovetop meal. I also include some lovely vintage dishes to complete the dining experience. Check out the photos for a better look.
For those of you who are either visiting or working at any of the medical centers in Southern Oregon, I'm about a 3 minute drive to Three River's Community Hospital. I'm also conveniently located close to Exit 55 (the southern most exit for Grants Pass) and about a 30 minute drive to either Providence or Rogue River Medical Center.
Music Lovers? The Britt is an amazing place with top name performers and outdoor seating. It's a small venue where you can actually see the people you came to see. There are no huge stages or barricades. I'm a huge fan! Also rumor has it that Cape Blanco music festival has been moved to a new venue that is less than 15 minutes from my front door. Hmmmm.... sounds like a lot of fun coming this way.
Dunmovin' is a river front property in the city limits of Grants Pass. You will have privacy, and yet have convenience of the location a few minutes from the amazing restaurants and entertainment of the area.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests have access to my private saline pool that is located on the river side of the property. The pool is heated to 80 degrees beginning in April. In the warmer months I don't heat it, since we need a bit of 'refreshment' from the warm air. You can also utilize my propane BBQ and vintage glass table for outdoor dining. There are several poolside chairs for lounging and a water slide for bigger kids and adults. The pool depth ranges from 4 feet to 8 feet. I have several floaties to choose from. The property is completely fenced with the exception of the lower third that is closest to the river. I leave this open because I like the rustic look. Guests are welcome to bring their fishing poles and fish from the banks, but you will need an Oregon fishing license. You are also welcome to swim in the river, kayak, plank, or whatever water activity you enjoy. My section of the river is very wide and deep, there are riffles above and below my section but they are long way from my section. Guests also are welcome to use my tandem bike to explore the neighborhood. It's a blast.

I'm available to help you out if you need it, or just let you chill. I'm a working photographer so I have sessions that I may be involved with occasionally at my onsite studio. I occasionally shoot underwater so sometimes you may see me working with a client in the pool. Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance if you need anything. If I can help, I will.
Please note I have two medium/large sized dogs onsite. The dogs are VERY friendly. They love children most of all. They are not allowed in the Cottage. Any item left unattended outside the Cottage, they assume is a gift for them. Often they will try to split your unintentional dog offering up between them. They will greet you enthusiastically every time you come home. They are suckers for attention.
Also please note that there very limited smoking areas on the property, and absolutely no smoking, or vaping, inside the Cottage. Please only smoke outside and please dispose of your butts in the trash receptacles.
Please note that I have a septic system. What this means is that you may not flush any type of sanitary product down the toilet. It will clog the system and we will have a unsatisfactory few hours while we work together to unclog the system.

There will be an extra charge of $50 AND a deposit of $400 with Airbnb that will be refunded if there is no pet damage.
