Sunset Farms Sanctuary is amazing! I loved all the animals and getting to spend time learning their histories and watch Helen interact with them.
The site is incredibly convenient to bike to from the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway (I visited in the middle of a bike tour) and the visit was truly the most amazing part of my week-long bike trip.
My little dog even did well around all the farm animals for being a city dog :)

My little dog didn't want to get incredibly close to the pigs and other animals, but she did OK!

The property is only 15 mins off the I-5, well kept with beautiful roses blooming and the animals endearingly happy (many of them rescued from bad situations). Helen the host is cheery and warm, and regaled me with stories of her life looking after these 140 plus animals. The trailer itself was comfortable, the shower hot, and it even had WiFi. It was a welcome respite after a long day of driving, and a highlight of my whole trip. I highly recommend this place and would love to visit again myself one day.

Our stay at Sunset Farms Sanctuary was beyond amazing. All of us are crazy huge animal lovers and it was incredible seeing how well loved and taken care of all these animals are here at the sanctuary. They have all been rescues, coming from many different places and every animal has a heart breaking story about their past. Luckily now they live in paradise and are given the best lives ever. Helen and Brian were the best hosts we could have. They took time out of their extremely busy animal care schedule to introduce us to all the animals on the property as well as sharing stories about them and lovingly telling us their unique quirks and personalities. We fell in love with every single animal and were lucky enough to get to help with bottle feedings.
The camper they provide for guests is adorably decorated and completely spotless. We had a customized welcome sign and a dog treat waiting for us, as well as everything else we could need.
We can't wait to come back here on our next camping trip. Their sanctuary is a little piece of heaven and seeing the love they have for what they do is wonderful.

Sunset Farms SanctuaryThese babies were so friendly and lovingHow cute is this little baby face?These sweet babies are sad byproducts of the dairy industry. Male calves are left to die as they are no use to dairies. These babies were left out in the cold next to a dumpster. Luckily they were rescued by Helen.

We came here to stay during a festival that was happening about 10 minutes away, but it became such an amazing part of our trip! Helen was amazing, and allowed us to feed the animals at their morning feedings with her as she told us about how they came to start this sanctuary and the highly unique stories of all of the different animals. The trailer was clean and comfy with a firm bed, which was awesome--the whole stay was just great. I miss the animals already!

This beautiful little farm was the highlight of my daughter's trip! The hosts were gracious and spent time telling us about all the animals, their names and stories. We were able to help bottle feed the young ones! The trailer was cute, cozy, well thought out and had everything you would need. We would definitely stay there again!

I'm telling my friends to donate to their nonprofit to feed the animals: http://sunsetfarmssanctuary.org/sponsors.

I got to meet 150 animals that Helen and Brian care for, many that people abandoned and threw over their fence at night like:

- Goats that break into the house to sleep and turn on the faucet :) Sometimes they're abandoned because they have a limp that Helen can easily fix.

- Male baby cows found in the trash.

- Pigs that were starved.

- A sheep that was beaten by kids with baseball bats.

- A duck that gets seizures.

I offered to help feed the animals at 6am and Helen gave me a tour of all the animals.

The trailer was more spacious than ones we've stayed in. And we appreciated having two pillows a person. We didn't turn on the heat much in order to save energy.

We loved it!!! Helen is great.
She gave me and my husband a lot of useful information since we are considering moving to Oregon. She gave us a tour of her property and we got to see all the animals.
Why stay in a Hotel if for the same price you could stay in this beautiful place!

The Sunset Farm Sanctuary was amazing! Deedee and Brian were great hosts- very easy going and friendly! Not to mention the work they do on the farm is inspiring and brought hope to our hearts, witnessing great people do wonderful things!! My wife and I stayed in the trailer and it was everything we needed- privacy and comfort. The camping option, our friends did was more like putting a tent up their backyard (not very private), however we were either hanging out in the trailer, petting the cute animals or exploring the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend this place to any animal lover! I was also more than grateful we could bring our dog, as she is every part of our family ~ sometimes rare to be able to bring dogs to a farm. The farm was a great getaway from the urban life. A note to pack: ear plugs-because as with most farms they have roosters, and we brought our utensils and pots and pans were provided! We also explored Foster Lake which was beautiful. And we caught the Corvallis Farmers Market which was a treat. Such a great way to spend Labor Day weekend!!
