We are Schuyler and Merritt Oliver, California natives who enjoy travelling, the great outdoors and spending time with family & friends. One adventurous summer while traveling to South Dakota in a trailer, we discovered Smith Rock. We fell in love with the area's captivating vistas, outdoor vibe & endless recreational activities. Since then we have spent time getting to know Central Oregon's incredible high desert rivers, mountains and towns.We are often asked: What do you appreciate most about this unique property? Well, it's a relaxing place to unwind away from busy city life...we love the connection to the land, the potential to grow and harvest food, accessibility to trails, local farms, the abundance of wildlife & most of all, the Smith Rock View.
