About Kristin

After traveling and working in different parts of the world for many years, I am lucky to call Crooked Finger Farms my home. It is a life dream realized! And I am excited to be able to share such a special place with others who appreciate the natural beauty of this Historic Farmstead! The work is never ending but oh so rewarding... The fruits of my labor realized literally! A place where my horses can eat green grass and run free... A place for friends to gather, share a great pot of coffee or a good bottle of wine...tell stories, play music and enjoy the gardens... Did I mention gardens? Looking forward to the warmer summer months this year... Excited about what my garden will produce...

Kristin purchased this House in 2011

Why Kristin chose Scotts Mills

What makes this House unique

Rolling acres of lush green pastures, mature landscaping, gardens and a huge historic red barn. The rich volcanic soils, natural, pristine waters, Crooked Finger Farms is my dream come true!

                                                                      Our family wanted a place to unwind and get away from the city. We found it with this place! It was everything we hoped it would be. Kristen has created a lovely home with everything you would want on your vacation getaway. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the gadgets and utensils. She had fresh eggs, bagels with all the fixings waiting for us when we arrived. Our family really enjoyed the beautiful property and would recommend this to anyone who wants to unplug and get away!

                                                                      very wonderful winter stay

                                                                      Prabu M.Portland, OR

                                                                      This is a beautiful little property not too far from Portland but secluded enough to feel "disconnected" from the hubbub. We had the good fortune to arrive just before a big snowstorm and truly enjoyed the beautiful grounds. Kristin is a very gracious host and the horses, dog, and rest of the (working) farm made it a memorable stay. Thank you, Kristin!

                                                                      Perfect Family Thanksgiving

                                                                      Valerie W.Poulsbo, WA

                                                                      This cottage was the perfect setting for our family to gather for our first Thanksgiving together in over 30 years. Mary, the caretaker for the week went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She even did a little decorating for the holiday. Four of us stayed at the cottage for 3 nights and 8 more came to share Thanksgiving dinner. The large kitchen and dining room were perfect to meet our needs. The Crooked Finger Farm is located in a beautiful area rich in history surrounded by Christmas tree farms. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean, it felt like home. I would say that if phone service is imperative while you are on vacation this may not be ideal. The cell service is really non-existent...which can be a good thing for most people looking to get away and the house phone was not working. They do have internet so texting is an option. We loved it and would highly recommend this property.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Valerie and her family were great guests to have on the farm. And I am so glad they enjoyed their stay! We love hosting guests like Valerie, as the property is ideal for gatherings and family celebrations.

                                                                      Unfortunately, I was out of the country during their stay, so I was unaware that there was a problem with the phones when they checked in.

                                                                      Apparently there was a phone outage during their stay, and they were unable to make calls with the land line. Although outages do happen, this is an unusual occurrence.

                                                                      We do provide a landline for guests exclusive use. We also provide unlimited internet for internet and cell phone useage, so calling and cell phone usage is not usually a problem.

                                                                      Amazing!!

                                                                      Beautiful and peaceful place
