About Stargazer Carriage House
Stargazer Farm is a 60 acre historical conservation land, located at the junction of the Sandy River and Bull Run Watershed. Originally settled in the mid 1800s by a Dutch family off the Oregon Trail, it was later purchased in the early 1900s by Jan de Graaff, a 10th generation Dutch botanist. Stargazer quickly became the heart of the commercial lily industry, patenting over 150 varieties and processing $50 million in bulbs per year. Presently Stargazer is an organic farm suppling to some of Portland's finest restaurants, including Ava Gene's, Dove Vivi, Biwa, Renata and others. Enjoy your time in the wilderness hiking, fishing, mountain biking, foraging and snowboarding/skiing. Find your escape a mere 30 minute drive from Portland, located at the foothills of Mt. Hood. This 800 sq. ft. Carriage House has been fully renovated with reclaimed wood, a refurbished 1950s refrigerator and comfortably furnished with vintage decor to host 2-6 guests (two queen beds + one futon that sleeps two).

The vibe at Stargazer Carriage House
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Stargazer is seriously out of a dream. The detail of the Carriage House is impeccable. The property and views are completely serene. Billy (the owner) is awesome and so welcoming. He had a fire going for us when we arrived! If you love to be in nature and the idea of foraging for our own veggies sounds like an adventure - it doesn't get any better than this! We will definitely be back very soon and we highly recommend!
The Stargazer Farm is a beautiful piece of land not too far from Portland that makes for a great escape from the city. During your stay you can treat yourself by harvesting fresh produce that you are able to pick yourself straight from the farm grounds! The farm uses much of this same produce to supply some of Portland's top restaurants! The owner, Billy, is extremely kind and friendly, and he will ensure that you have a fantastic stay. He is also a great source when it comes to recommending hiking trails/activities on and near the farm!
Our experience at Stargazer was incredible! Billy was an awesome host, full of happiness, stories, and is deeply passionate about sharing his love for sustainable agriculture. He was also an extremely accommodating and gracious. Our only complaint is that we wish we had more time to spend there! The Carriage House is homely, comfortable, and has super-nice amenities. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I slept that well :)
