Welcome to Elijah Park! Our tiny farm (2 acres on this site!) grows roses, rehabs horses, and raises chickens and miniature call ducks.   A lovely, friendly peacock strolls the grounds and is relatively happy to be fed bits of chips or raisins. Treats for him can be provided upon request.  

Hammock(s) under the tiny but old orchard provide relaxation, fire pits bade you to linger watching the sun set.  August provides you with a stunning view of the Perseid meteor showers, weather and sky clarity providing.  Corn hole game can be set out upon request. Great space for yard games.  Front yard has tree swings.

In-season activities may include cider making, cooking with produce from garden, harvesting a pumpkin, smelling the roses (we have about 50 young bushes). Skills or crafts on request  may include  a candle-making experience or scavenger hunt or a child-friendly pine-cone bird feeding hanger.  Soft goat cheese making sometimes is an option when fresh milk is available ( obtained off-farm), you start it and come back to finish about 12 hours later for a soft cheese.  Let's face it, making French rustic bread ought to be on the list, too, beacsue it is GREAT to toast over a fire with salted local butter. 

A great getaway from the city, yet close- by, you have a  slight sense of isolation even though the house is nearby the sites.  (We are not a commercial camp ground!) 

This is a working farm with animals and tractor sounds at randoms times.

Bathroom is bucket with seat and eco friendly gel with hand sanitizer in a tent.  Serviced upon request and daily. 

We clean the yard before company but sometimes still you might need to watch your step.

3 night stay maximum

No pets allowed, sorry - we like  animal people best BUT due to our own farm dogs, small fowl and cats and coyotes, it is safer to leave your pet at home.  We can provide you with a dog or cat to snuggle if you miss yours.  The border collies especially adore kids.  The cats just hope for anything they can get. 

Optional activities (you must request them in advance to ensure I have supplies on hand! Not everything available all seasons.)  Donations support physiotherapy and care of equine rehab projects.

Donation based projects:

Marbled paper art making (youth-friendly/focused)

Monster-gone magic spray (kids)Pour-paint art (weather-dependent!) Pinecone bird feeder making 

Squirt gun painting (under trial still! LOL ) 

Cheese making (usually start one day, finish the next, can be a bit slow/boring for kids)

Face mask or sugar scrub making (take it home and use it with a good shower handy!) 

Flower based Wax Melts - harvest rose petals and fragrant plant material from our garden to use!

Also Hard Cider making is in the 'options' along with firewood.

Nearby places to visit: 

Pull Caffe, wood fire roasted coffee! 

Mouton and Lucia falls (hiking or wheelchair friendly views)

Battle Ground Lake

Rusty Grape Vineyard and cafe

Scented Acres Lavender - seasonally open but  2 miles from here.

Longer loops:  Historical Columbia River Gorge Falls Loop HWY to Hood River - try the fruit loop rout, stop at apple, pear, lavender and flower farms, Solstice Cafe, the food cart at White House (the cider flight and wines are worth time, too!)  and Apple Valley BBQ for some amazing NW flavors. 

Bonneville dam can be a fun place to stop and see the fish in the park as well.

For sure end your loop tour at Timberline Lodge, one of the most amazing historical lodges in America.  Sit and enjoy a hot cocoa or indulge in their fine dining - everyone is welcome equally to enjoy the historical building.   Finish your loop via freeway back to our area. 

Ape Caves - on a hot day, they feel SO good and are beautiful!  Great if you are traveling back to Seattle. 

Or try Portland's famous food cart scene - 4th and College street is our favorite but all are worth the time. 

Elk Rock Garden

Washington Park's Holocaust memorial - beautiful.

GK is a great host who made her farm available to our family. We felt safe with the Covid precautions made. Anyone interested in engaging with animals while also camping will find this spot rewarding, especially those with kids as we did with a 3 year old. If staying longer than a day, be sure to venture out elsewhere, such as the state parks in the area, which are all great.

I could not say enough about this property and host. She truly went above and beyond! Everything was set up for us and the kids LOVED it. She let us pick our fill of raspberries and even gave our kids pony rides and let them collect eggs. We highly recommend staying at Elijah Park and Farm

Just book it! Such a lovely property with really welcoming and kind people. My friends and I came on July 4th, so the night was a little louder than usual, but it was still a great getaway from the city. We loved hanging out with the cats, chickens, peacock, and horses. GK even gave me a horseback ride in the morning!
We had our own fire pit, and requested the firewood. It was there upon arrival. We were able to car camp, under two beautiful apple trees. There's a picnic table off to the side, but had to bring our own lawn chairs to sit around the fire.
Really loved this place, and will be back!

We loved staying here! GK and her family were so inviting, it felt like staying at a farm owned by close relatives of a friend. The peacock was impressive and the horses are lovely. We will definitely be back.

We had a great stay at the farm! GK and her family are incredibly welcoming hosts. Our kids loved meeting the animals and experiencing farm life. They also loved the rope swings! Conveniently close to the city but feels like a world away.

THANK YOU! You are welcome back any time - might have a pumpkin crop to share with the kids, too!

I went on a solo trip for 2 nights at the farm and had a lovely time. There were horses, cats, dogs, chickens, and even a peacock. They have a moderate-size backyard that I had to myself. GK was very welcoming but also let me do my own thing. It was a belated birthday trip for me, and they made me a cake and one of their neighbors gave me a gift! Super sweet.

We had a really wonderful stay here! For some reason the map didn’t put in the address number, just the street, so we were taken to a different place but GK was a really incredible host and stayed up to make sure we made our way there! It’s a really beautiful property and we definitely would have liked to stay longer!

I've been shopping boats ever since you left, too! You both inspired me.
