About This Center

Cairns Farm is a 9-acre private park and open space offering sanctuary, a place to gather, recreational activities, and educational opportunities in the middle of Oregon’s gorgeous wine country. Located just 15 miles from Portland and easily accessible via Interstate 5, our family-owned farm is the realization of a long-held dream to create an inclusive, welcoming space for all comers.

We have divided our property into two unique spaces for you: a 3-acre Douglas Fir forest we call The Wood, groomed for group games and sports like laser tag, and a 5-acre private park with ancient oak groves, open fields, fir stands, a natural amphitheater, an open barn shelter, decking, and an antique farm house with three restrooms — one of which is accessible for folks who experience disability. The remaining acre houses our family home, barn, well, gardens, and animals. 

Come away with us. Rest. Play. Run free. Live out loud. Bring your people. We’d love to welcome you to our home.

Venue Highlights

Cairns Farm is a 9-acre private park and open space offering sanctuary, a place to gather, recreational activities, and educational opportunities in the middle of Oregon’s gorgeous wine country.

We offer expansive places to picnic, roam, gather, play, learn, and breathe in clean, clear air as you rest in the shade of our Douglas Fir trees and ancient oaks or hang out in our barn shelter or on the decks overlooking the farm. Our 3-acre Wood is open and ready for laser tag and other recreational games, as well.

Cairns Farm is open by private appointment during daylight hours.

      The most enjoyable adventure!

    The co-owners and co-leaders of Cairns Farm adventures have a unique ability to ensure the experience is relaxing & joyful. I had never gone on a kayaking overnight trip. They were brilliantly prepared, the food was delicious and the company was warm, supportive and encouraging. I don't believe I would go on adventure like this, without it being a Cairns Farm adventure with amazing women leading it. I am so grateful for this experience!

      A beautifully curated experience

    This trip was so enjoyable, and well planned. As a beginner, I felt comfortable on the river, with their expert instruction. The food was excellent, and the scenery priceless. Highly recommend this trip for anyone needing an escape into nature.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
