Magic Barn, circa 1936, former sculpture studio restored by community artists with old growth barn wood, up-cycled furnishings, kitchen, claw foot bath with a sculpture garden.
Centrally located in the heart of a charming restaurant and boutique district; three blocks walking to both SE Hawthorne and Division St.
Fifteen minutes to both the airport and downtown, there are four bus stops within three blocks, and ample street parking on our block.
Built with Love!
From 2000 to 2015 the Magic Barn was Todji's sculpture studio. Most of the sculptures in the sculpture garden were designed right here and are exhibited for everyone to experience.
When Todji first moved into the main house as a renter, the Magic Barn was just an empty crooked shed with no electricity, water or heat and it was filled with trash.
Todji purchased the old neglected rental in 2004 when self-employed artists could get a loan, and after fifteen years of restoring the main house and the old "Barn", while building a career as a sculptor, Todji and Gisele decided to convert his studio into its own unit to host travelers and guests such as yourself.
During the summer of 2015 Todji designed and built the Magic Barn with the talented carpenters and fine art painters Theo Holdt and TJ Ravenwolf. The interior wood siding are salvaged old growth barn planks, and the ceiling is made of the original 1936 rafters and sheathing.
I am deeply grateful for Theo’s and TJ’s patience and dedication in this collaborative endeavor!
TJ’s painting is hanging above the couch. TJ is native American from the Alaskan tribes of Koyukon Athabaskan and Muscogee Creek. TJ collected all of the natural pigments in the painting from all around Oregon in prayer, and his prayer in painting now graces the Magic Barn.
Thank you Theo and TJ!

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are available to assist your stay in person, via phone, text or email. Hobie lives in the main house, and Todji and Gisele live nearby.
We all work full time and are active so we leave casual interaction up to the ease and flow of everyone's schedules. We tend to meet our guests more often in the summer, and less often when it is cold or raining.
We have taken on the profession of being Airbnb "Artist Inn Keepers" to help support the cultivation of our artistic practices, and to share our creative work with you. Gisele and I also produce public art bronze sculpture monuments for US cities which you may already have seen, or that you may see one day, please take one of my postcards home with you and visit my website.
