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 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!

  • Our stay was "interesting", shall we say.... when the hosts say "Future Farm", I thought they meant that it was a farm that was trying to establish ideas and standards they hoped would be adopted in the future on more urban farms. In fact, I'm guessing the name is aspirational: the place may one day be a farm, but is currently just a big tangle of weeds with a few ducks.

    We were not under any illusions that this would be a luxury stay. It seemed a little more like camping than I was expecting, though... I knew we needed to use the bathroom in the house, but did not realize that it would be shared with everyone else in the house... That having been said, the airstream was quite cute. Lots of natural light (although could use more lamps in the evening), and lots of windows we could open for air. The hardwood floors were a nice touch, and the wood stove also added to the cozy feeling. The bed needs better support, as about 18 inches on one side are totally unsupported - if you have two people in the bed, one of them feels like they might fall at any moment. We were surprised at first that the part of the trailer that was originally part of the bathroom was just curtained off and not used for anything else. We ended up modifying the space, ourselves, into a little sitting area, as there was nowhere other than the bed to sit on. We ended up making something a little eclectic-looking but rather functional. Hopefully it is used (or modified further) for future guests.

    It was a very interesting and memorable experience. Just go into it with the right understanding and expectations.

  • Great time in a unique space. Close to the city and amazing places to eat/drink right around the corner.

  • You cannot beat this location for the price. Grab the #4 or #6 bus, both within minutes walking from the Airstream, and you can get anywhere within Portland in 30 minutes. This is a great home base while you go out exploring the city.

    There is a Bee hive on the property, which should be considered by anyone staying here that's allergic to me. We were never bothered by bees but I just wanted to point out that it's there.

    Also they have a great calico kitten named Clover. I highly recommend playing with said kitten.

  • I had a great stay in the airstream. Was just there for two nights. It's quiet and peaceful and it's fun to stay in an airstream. If you are ok without all the amenities and are the adventurous type you'll love it.

  • the stay was nearly exactly as I had imagined, based on the description and other reviews. I had a nice (but far too short) stay

  • I had a wonderful time staying at the Airstream at Future Farm. It was super centrally located and was a short bike ride away from so many wonderful things. Justin and everyone else in the house were wonderful hosts.

    We wound up lighting the fire place within the Airstream which made for an extra cozy night sleep.

  • I had a great stay at the airstream! It was just the right size for me and I love the cat dropping by in the mornings and evenings. I briefly met Justin and he was nice and even let me hold a baby duck! Thanks!!

  • We really enjoyed our 2 nights stay in the airstream. The check in process was very easy, it was clean, the bed was comfortable and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was perfect for our first Portland experience and we would definitely stay there again.

About
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.
