Farm Rental Inquiry

About This Event


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

We have divided our property into two unique spaces: 1) a 5-acre Park with ancient oak groves, open fields, fir stands, a shelter crafted from a vintage red barn, expansive decking, and an antique farm house with two restrooms (the barn shelter, decking, and one of the restrooms are wheelchair accessible), and 2) a 3-acre Douglas Fir forest we call The Wood, groomed for group games and recreation like capture the flag. The remaining acre houses our family home, working barn, well and water pump, gardens and orchard, and our beloved chickens and goat herd.

Due to COVID-19, we’ve completely revamped the way we price Cairns Farm rentals. Motivated by a dual desire to adhere to all state and county health and safety protocols and to serve our community who are reeling with dramatic changes to the gatherings and celebrations they’d planned, we have reduced our rental price to $100/hour for the remainder of 2020.

For more detailed information about what’s included in a site rental, not included, maximum occupancy, parking, reservation deposits, and health and safety protocols, see our About page.

      Such a pleasure to {re}TREAT Myself at the Oregon Coast

    Care, friendship, peace, openness, pampering, freedom, acceptance, beauty, perspective, awareness - I got all these things and more during my few days with a remarkable group of ladies that I'm now proud to call friends. There's no pressure to be any particular way, or do any particular thing.This lovely retreat can be whatever you choose to make it.

    Everything was wonderful and unforgettable. Hats off to the organizers for fabulous food, top-notch accommodations, meaningful sessions, and enjoyable excursions. All this combined with new friends and a gorgeous setting made for an experience I hope to repeat again soon. Much love to the retreat crew!

      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.
