Why owner/property manager chose Happy Valley
We wanted a larger property with some water feature that needed some attention to rehab its natural aspects. Now more than half the property is park like and improving every day. The house was listed as a teardown, but we decided it could be saved, both to save money and renew an old but still viable resource: a lovely home. Frogs, salamanders, deer, owls, and much more share our property. It's non-forest spaces, originally overgrown lawns, are being turned into orchard, vegetable fields and wildflower patches for wildlife.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Clean air, relaxing forest and beautiful creek alone make this a great place to visit. However, the small farm is gradually producing sustainable yields, used for ourselves and guests breakfasts. All spaces are within feet of the forest. The property is also within a major metro area, allowing quick trips to any urban interests, and only a 20 minute drive into downtown Portland. And the larger Metro Portland areas is commonly listed as the best outdoor city in America, with 15-45 minute access to dozens of parks from local to national parks. 3 major rivers within 20 minutes.

Paradise in the city
Awesome place to stay and only a few minutes from Portland. The place was cozy, clean and the decorations inside and out were very unique and charming. Thoughtful accommodations included, a well stocked kitchen and fridge with breakfast supplies, snacks and fresh ground coffee. As well as books, puzzles, games and toys! Don and Mary were very helpful and generous, providing excellent info on attractions in the area and our needs. The creek and property reminds me of my own home in Trail, Oregon. We enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend this property! Danke dir! Sandy, Michael, Jessica, Gabriel, and Yuna Geary
Very nice, quiet, clean family, good for any hosts.
We were glad they enjoyed our property.

a retreat in town
We had a wonderful stay. Really enjoyed the property and small creek. Nicely done cottage with everything we needed. Will stay again.
Nice cozy spot to get away and unplug
Great whimsical stay
If you are looking for an out of the ordinary place to stay, please consider Scott Farm. We were recently there for a week and thoroughly enjoyed Don and Mary's 5* hospitality. Accommodations charming - loved the very retro decorations and furnishings (kinda like a central European inn or chalet). Great scenic and rustic trail to walk the dog and exercise. Grateful for breakfast items and gourmet coffee. If you're in the Portland or Happy Valley area, this is a great place to stay!
An oasis in the midst of the development of Happy Valley.
Particularly enjoyed the cedar trees, the creek and the access to walking trails. The owners were very attentive and left us lots of food. The apartment was clean. The place was otherworldly and a little overwhelming with all the little decorations everywhere.
Great spot, great service, great people!!
We needed a place in Portland close to family but that could also accommodate our dog. Scott Creek Farm fit the bill to a "T"!! Our dog loved the trails (as did we) and it was easy to get to our family. We had space to invite people over. We were too busy to cook but we did have that option. It was very warm most of the time and we chose to sleep upstairs so we really appreciated that they came in during the day to clean up and turn the AC on so we would sleep in comfort! We got a walk in in the mornings but then we were gone the rest of the day but this would be a great place for a retreat -- there are lots of books, games and then the trails, plus sitting outdoors -- we didn't have the time to enjoy all that like we could have. Mary and Don take very good care of you! They kept the frig and breakfast stuff well stocked and the cabin well cleaned. There were lots of nic-nacs so might be a little challenge for those with small children - but again, lots of toys and games for all ages. We really enjoyed feeling like we were out in nature while being in the middle of the city!!
Very quiet, clean guests we highly recommend.
