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
I have always had a passion for horses, hiking, historic homes, interior design, beautiful landscaping and gardening... to name a few. I have never found a place more ideally suited for all my passions combined!
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
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
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.
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.
The property is beautiful, peaceful, and absolutely perfect. The house is wonderfully decorated and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our family vacation.
Beautiful and peaceful place
The house and property is beautiful. Easy scenic drives to local attractions.
Spacious, accommodating, and comfortable
Kristin is the best! Very quiet and peaceful place. Wish we could have stayed longer.
We are ideally located in the upper Willamette Valley about an hour from Portland and approximately 12 miles from the town of Silverton, OR. The area is a gardener's paradise and Silverton is home to the Oregon Gardens and the gateway to the world famous Silver Falls St. Park! There is great shopping, several grocery stores, and a delightful Saturday Farmer's Market. There are also several excellent restaurants. Be sure to check out the local 'Old-Time' movie theater! The city of Portland, and the capital city of Salem are both nearby. We also offer overnight accommodation for horses. Possible arrangements can be made for riding opportunities. We are a short drive from endless outdoor activities that include wine tasting, hiking, mountain biking, bicycle riding, kayaking, swimming, skiing, horseback riding, shooting & fishing. Local attractions: Camp Dakota, Domaine Margelle Vineyards, The Town of Silverton, Silver Falls State Park, The Oregon Gardens… Just to name a few....
