The Space

Hello!
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 is available just inside the back door of our house. We offer free wifi, in house bicycle rentals, and unlimited access to gardens, and an ever changing barnyard of gentle creatures.

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 and artists. There is nothing fancy about our setup but it is a great little get-away inside the city. 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!

  • If you're looking for a true Portland experience look no further than this shiny hunk of aluminium nestled in Justin & Lee's fully-farmed, goat-friendly backyard in the quiet northwest residential district of PDX. Comes fully stocked with dreamcatchers, firewood, and books on squirrel nut games. Would definitely recommend Future Farm to all fellow vagabonds.

  • The Airstream at Future Farm looks a little funky at first, but the space is perfect for one or two people. I really enjoyed coming "home" to the Airstream after a long day in the rain. It was cozy and warm at night with the space heater and the bed was super comfortable. There's only a hot kettle for cooking, so pick up some soup or oatmeal cups for your meals.

    The farm is an oasis in the middle of the city and is a delight to walk around in. There are a few ducks, bees and some really sweet cats in the garden. One of the owners might have a bike for rent which is cheaper than the bike rental places downtown. I'll come back the next time I'm in Portland.

  • This was a fantastic place to stay. The weather was cool so we used the wood stove every night, creating a very romantic setting in which to use the house wifi to watch Portlandia episodes and learn about the locals. Kenya left out instructions and great tourist maps for us, the ducks were cordial and I found a book on Vincent Gallo in the eclectic onboard library. We brought our bikes and were able to keep them inside with us as there is, weirdly, a ton of room inside this awesome trailer.

    Huge note for others... when you stay here, do yourself a big favor and go to a restaurant a block away called Toro Bravo. It was insanely good.

    I've already recommended this place to my friends.

  • This was an excellent place to stay; the Airstream was very cute and cozy, and we had lots of privacy. It was also very conveniently located near the bus lines and the city, but without all of the commotion that usually goes with that. We had a fantastic time!

  • For someone who has never been to Portland before we found the location perfect for getting around the city. Kenya had left plenty of maps to help get around the city, along with the electric heater and plenty of firewood to keep warm in winter.

    Highly recommend the airstream, if you haven't done it you're missing out.

  • The Airstream was very charming and in a great part of town, with multiple awesome restaurants and bars to walk to. Plus it's close to MLK and easy to get pretty much anywhere by bus or car. In the winter, the wood-burning stove, while also extremely awesome, is not really a choice. If you don't build a fire, you may freeze. Everyone in the house was friendly, and I got an adorable cat visitor every night that I loved. Guests should be able to use the dresser drawers for longer stays (I stayed 5 nights). A couple of times I went into the bathroom in the main house, the toilet didn't work. Another time the sink didn't work which is not a huge deal but I do like to have clean hands! And the shared bathroom in general could be a lot cleaner. Bottom line is that is was a lovely yard and trailer but without consistent access to a toilet, heat, storage and a sink, it should be closer to $30 - $35 per night rather than 50. Particularly with the strict cancellation policy. But Kenya was very responsive to all of my questions throughout the stay and I will still recommend it for either shorter stays or less uptight people.

  • The Airstream and Future Farm are just as charming as the photos suggest. Truly a unique experience. My only advice is to bring someone to share it with--it has a romantic vibe that is bittersweet for the solo traveler!

  • We had a wonderful weekend at the Future Farm. The trailer was adorable inside and very cozy--the bed is incredibly comfortable for 2. The farm is filled with friendly animals and staying there definitely made for a novel experience. In terms of location, we found it fairly easy to get downtown by streetcar or cab and there are a couple great restaurants very close by (try Toro Bravo, Ox or Secret Society). We also rented a car and finding parking was no trouble. Kenya is right to say that they are hands off as hosts. However, Kenya was not there and we felt that some details went unaddressed. No one showed us around when we got there, so we weren't sure where the bathroom was or what areas we could or couldn't go in to. A flashlight would have made getting around the farm at night much easier, and a primer on how to use the woodstove would have been nice as well. Overall, it was a great weekend and we would recommend it for anyone looking for a true Portland experience.

  • My partner and I really enjoyed staying in the airstream! Kenya and the other folks who live here are welcoming and friendly. We joined them at a nice evening campfire, and we also enjoyed a relaxing in the hammocks in the afternoon. The farm is lovely and pretty quiet -- 3 pygmy goats, some ducks, and a turkey wander through the yard. The airstream itself was beautiful, clean, and private -- even with lots of folks around the yard, we felt like it was easy to be private or social - however the mood strikes you!

    Overall, I'd rate it at 4.5 stars -- the only thing that I wished had been different is that the shared bathroom could have used a good scrubbing.

    We'd happily stay here on another trip to Portland! Thanks, Kenya for sharing your space with us!

  • Really enjoyed staying at Kenya's place. The Airstream is very cozy and hip. The farm is charmingly offbeat - goats and ducks and turkey running around the yard. It takes a bit of effort to get downton but not that bad via public transport or bike. The location is nearby several restaurants and a music venue. Very recommended if you want to have a unique Portland experience.

    The only reason I've given 4 stars though is that I was a bit confused on arrival, knocking on the front door, unaware of the gate to the yard, if Kenya and I were going to meet in person, etc. Also, I couldn't get the key to the Airstream to work and felt a bit uneasy about leaving my stuff unattended.

    But these were minor issues in what was otherwise a great stay. Thanks again!

About
There are currently five 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.
