Where do I start? We live in Los Angeles and my boys (11 & 7) and I have been lucky enough to travel a lot both locally and internationally, but this is their favorite place! We just went for the second time, and it was just as good as the first. We love the animals, we love the peace and quiet, I love the cottage, it is simply perfect and cozy, summer and winter and the boys go off to do chores every morning and afternoon which they love. They bring me eggs and I make breakfast. We love the forest, there are actually fairies living in there! but most of all we love Scottie the owner. She is so warm and giving and my boys adore her. They also helped Justin the manager dig trenches! yet I can't get them to lift a finger at home! A couple of easy hours drive from Portland and you are in heaven and yet 40 minutes from the coast. We have just booked for next year and we can't wait !!
I stayed with a group of women friends at Leaping Lamp Farm while we attended a yoga retreat nearby. We ordered a box of veggies from the farm and cooked dinner both nights with the amazing produce and eggs that we collected from the chickens. I stayed with one friend in the cottage, which was spacious and comfortable. The other five stayed in the farmhouse where we cooked, ate and visited. Both nights were clear and we saw the Milky Way! I loved this place and hope to go back next year. The proprietor, Scottie Jones, was generous with her time introducing us to the animals and showing us around the garden. We all thought it would be a great place for a family with young children who liked animals. They have sheep, goats, chickens, horses, and more.
