About this listing
(NOTE: WE ARE BOOKED FOR SUMMER 2017 FOR LARGE SPECIAL EVENTS. ONLY SMALLER EVENT DATES REMAIN OPEN). Our farm is a fun, artistic, & unique place to stay. The farm is surrounded by art, nature and private out buildings to hang out at. Say hi to our fuzzy cows that saunter up to the fence and want brushed. They're very photogenic! It's a great place to stay if you're here for fishing, rafting, snow or water skiing, hiking, biking, etc. Plus we're only a short drive to Portland and Mt. Hood!
Both bedrooms are very spacious and tastefully decorated. One bedroom has a comfy full sized bed, and a very long, cozy and retro couch to sleep or relax on. There's also a big nice comfortable chair to sit and read by. A small folding table is in the antique closet to use as a desk, along with extra pillows and blankets. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and a comfortable recliner. It also has a small folding table to use for your electronic devices. The whole house is warm and inviting, with lots of vintage charm!
You'll have access to both bedrooms upstairs, a shared bathroom, gourmet kitchen, living room with Netflix, utility room, WiFi, and outdoor access to roam the farm this side of the pastures. If one of us are home, we'd be happy to take your pics standing next to the cows, murals, or wherever you'd like on the farm. If you would like to plan an event, we can discuss fees, which vary depending on size and length of event.
Interaction with guests
I should be around most of the time to answer any questions you may have. We usually leave you alone, but we're more than happy to mingle with guests if they're in the mood. Dale (my husband of 32 years) and I have lived in the area our entire lives, so we know quite a few places to recommend for you to go see.
All of our neighbors have at least 20 acres, so it's private and spacious. There's plenty of outdoor activity to be enjoyed here. On the property, there's lots of sitting areas to hang out at, which some are covered. Oregon City is a historic town, the official 'End of the Oregon Trail'. There are museums 7 miles away, and pubs 2 miles away. Clackamette Park, where the Willamette and Clackamas river meet, has nice walking trails and tables to sit by the river. We are less than an hour from Mt. Hood ski resorts, and less than two hours to the Oregon Coast. Silver Falls is an hour south, and the Columbia Gorge and Multnomah Falls is 45 minutes north. Clackamas Town Center, a very large retail mall, and many restaurants is only 15 minutes away. Downtown Portland is about a 30 minute drive, depending on traffic.
You will need a car, motorcycle, or bicycle to get around. There is no bus or max service here, but there is a few miles away. There's always Uber though!
Other things to note
We do have 1 very mellow Lhasa/poodle mix, (Gus), and 3 indoor/outdoor cats (Brody, Barbie, and Butch), so you'll need to love animals! The cats won't bother you, and the dog is older and VERY laid back. And then of course, we have our 4 friendly Scottish Highland and Belted Galloway cows out back (Bovina, Cacao, Thelma, and Curly). Two of them should be having calves around April 2017. We also have a huge, fabulous fire pit out back, which one of us would be happy to help start for you (weather permitting). We have lots of guests who love to make s'mores out there. Plus, there's an extra building that you can hang out at out back which we call the 'Chicken Coop'. It's cozy, eclectic, enclosed, and has lots of comfy furniture. You'll love it! It's glamping at it's finest.
Events, parties, reunions, retreats, etc. are specially priced. We can discuss details based on your needs. We have other cottage buildings on site that may be available for you to use. We expect guests to keep the noise down after 10pm. No tobacco or cannabis smoking in the house, but will be permitted on the front porch, or at the firepit out back. No excessive drinking or disruptive behavior will be allowed. No illegal drugs will be tolerated. Only your VERY well behaved, cat AND dog friendly, housebroken dog (under 30#) will be allowed inside. We have a small pet door to a secured backyard for their use.

We're empty nesters, married over 30 years, raising Scottish Highland cows on our small antique farm. Dianne loves art, cooking, landscaping, traveling, and animals. Dale loves sports, animals, and working around the farm. Both of us are friendly, but quiet and respectful of your privacy. We're happy to engage with you though and hang out if you'd like company. We love meeting new people and hearing their stories.
