Come stay in a clean, private, vintage Airstream parked under a plum tree on our large urban farm! A lush retreat in the midst of an exciting neighborhood with easy access to all parts of the city!
The trailer is 27ft long and 7.5ft wide with a wood stove or space heater for cold nights. The firm full size bed is ideal for one and cozy for two. Access to a full bathroom with shower is available just inside the back door of our house. We offer free wifi, in house bicycle rentals, and unlimited access to our ever changing urban farm.
There is a hot pot and drinking water provided for boiling water, but please plan your meals elsewhere as our communal kitchen is a high traffic area. You are welcome to meander around the yard and enjoy the gardens, animals, and honeybees.
We are located in inner northeast Portland, very close to downtown. We are one block from cafés, bars, restaurants, pizza, and a ten minute walk to North Williams shops, grocery, fine dining, and desert. Or just one mile to the Mississippi neighborhood for ice cream or a burrito.
The number 6 bus runs a half block from the Airstream toward downtown, the street car, other buses or a quick 10 minute bus ride north to the Alberta Arts district. We are in a convenient location with easy access to all parts of town.
We are a laid back community of young farm and garden enthusiasts, cyclists, and artists. There is nothing fancy about our setup but it is a great get-away inside our wonderful city of Portland. We are proud of our space and are continually working to create the ideal urban garden!
We encourage you to make yourself at home and we respect your privacy, but feel free to ask us for suggestions about local attractions or questions about the gardens or animals!
Hope to see you soon!
There is no smoking in the airstream or yard, you are welcome to smoke on the sidewalk in front of the dwelling.
Please plan to be quiet after 10pm on weekdays and midnight on weekends.
Please do not feed the animals anything without checking with a resident first.
If you are traveling with children we ask that you help to enforce our "absolutely no chasing the animals" policy. (This goes for adults too)
Thank you and we hope that you have a great visit!
Our host was indeed hands-off; we only saw one of the residents from a distance during our stay working in the farm. However, they made sure to prepare the space such that check-in and access to the amenities were seamless. They left little notes so we did not have any unanswered questions. The space was truly cozy, but not uncomfortable by any means for the two of us. I would recommend this listing again for those who are comfortable with a listing that is a bit off the beaten path/ rustic.
My stay in the airstream was awesome. A unique place right in the heart of northeast Portland. The woodstove kicked out some heat once up and running and kept me cozy in the inside with 30 degree conditions on the outside. I didn't actually meet the hosts but found my way to the bathroom where all was peachy. Fun decor and artwork throughout the property; definitely an airbnb gem.
Overall our host was friendly, polite and accommodating when we wanted to drop our suitcase off early.
I was a little disappointed when I arrived at the airstream. The photos provided on the website make it look a little nicer than it's current state. I was a little concerned as there were several tarps attached to the roof, the venting for the gas stove seemed to not be up to code, and the electrical just a string of extension cords. The airstream definitely looked like it needed some TLC and a good scrub. I would only recommend this to a single person who was comfortable with a stay in a more rustic abode, as you are essentially just camping in someone's backyard. The listing describes bathroom access, but it is part of the house, so we felt a little intrusive, and I didn't really want to use the shower as it looked pretty dirty. The neighborhood had some great coffee/bars/restaurants walking distance. We decided that we would check out early, only staying one night instead of two.
The airstream was so great! There was a pitcher of water waiting and a bunch of guides to Portland since it was my first trip. It was very cozy. The people we met were very friendly. We got there a little late on our first night so we accidentally went in through the wrong door when looking for the bathroom. The woman in the house was very nice, though! Once we found the bathroom, we found the door we were supposed to use. I have absolutely no complaints about this trip. It was a perfect introduction to Portland and I can't wait to go back.
Ooooo. I have really been looking forward to writing this one. The Airstream is *** sweet*** . Loved my stay. For those who want a lot of special attention or amenities, this is not for you. Everything that other reviewers say is spot on. Here are some of my tips:
- Understandably, the folks here want to maintain a strict divide— ok, more like a Berlin Wall— between their guests and their life. Otherwise, we'd all be asking a million questions and monopolizing their time, I'm sure. I did manage to catch a glimpse of the FutureFarm folks farming when I first arrived. I also had to interact with them— as I couldn't figure out where the fence door was (to get into the yard) or where the bathroom was. They are like friendly--well, patient-- ghosts. But obviously a cool, special group.
- The Airstream is perfection: clean, quiet, private & warm— there is an electric heater and a wood stove (if you wanna use this, pick up some extra newspaper and be prepared to labor a bit). The door is a little tricky to lock-- I think you have to keep the handle lifted as you turn the key-- but it locks. And you can lock it from the inside w. the key. (I kept the key in the keyhole in case I had to make a quick exit in the middle of the night.) There will be towels and a pitcher of water waiting for you. It has lots of nice books, shells, and stones to look at. There is a dream catcher next to the bed, so no need to worry about nightmares.
- The bathroom is a short jaunt from the Airstream. It's in the back of their HOUSE (to the back-left of the yard), under a very cool home-made green roof/rainwater collection system. It's in perfectly fine condition— for a very old house. Based on other reviews, I was expecting an outhouse with a dirt floor. But it's a normal, clean, quaint old bathroom room with hot water, a claw foot tub/shower, and a flushing toilet. Worked for me. (FYI: Bring your own hairdryer— especially if you're in the city during the monsoo— rainy season. Nothing dries. )
- There are ducks on the farm and they splash around in their own little pools and they think all humans come with food, so they will quack at your door in the morning. Super cute. Unless you are a curmudgeon.
- The neighborhood gives you a flavor of gentrifying Portland— housing projects on one side, and some hippy cafes interspersed with bourgie restaurants + stores on the other.
Had a great two nights. Thank FutureFarm & good luck.
Great stay in this cozy classic airstream. Short, direct walk to public transportation and downtown Portland. Unfortunately,I have no chance to talk with our host. I want to come in summer on the next time.
Arrived and had a fresh pitcher of water and glasses- a simple gesture to make me feel extremely welcome. The listing was accurate and it was a fantastic location. Really close to two different bus lines in and out of downtown, which was super convenient. Overall, an awesome place and a great stay!

There are currently four full time human residents here at Future Farm. We are in the midst of transforming this large (once) over grown lot into a regenerative gardenscape. We almost have the whole space under control but there is always more weeding to be done. We make music, and art, grow food and raise animals, we work hard, but not all the time. As hosts we will be very hands off, but are happy to answer questions and point our guests in the the right direction.
