Our thanks and best wishes to our hosts who provided us with a secure and extremely well appointed overnight , level stay. We enjoyed getting to know a bit about you and may be back one day to catch a glimpse of the elusive lamas.
This location was incredible for several reasons- its a beautiful secluded ranch, close enough to Portland to enjoy the city, but with an incredible view of Mt. Hood and access to all it offers. The hosts are very welcoming, generous (fresh eggs from the chickens!), and were fun to socialize with! They have llamas, goats, sheep, and chickens on site which was awesome- one of the llamas gives kisses! The general feel of the property is very warm, and since they host different groups and retreats throughout the year, you really don't feel in the way at all. They let you use the hot tub, fire pit, play structure for kids, etc. PLUS, full hook ups! I couldn't have asked for a better stay! I hope I'll be back again some day!
Mr. Blount, his family, and ranch staff were very friendly and helpful while I familiarized myself with my new travel trailer that I purchased at a nearby dealer. I am very grateful to them all.
This was the perfect oasis while visiting friends and doing errands in the Portland area.
I stayed at the Tripod Ranch for a few nights and the hosts were so inviting!! I had no idea what I was doing as this was my first time using boondockers welcome, but the hosts were awesome about it and made me feel welcome.
The Tripod Ranch was an easy in and out for my 30 foot trailer. The amenities there are so good, you are not really boondocking with full hookups. RWBlount were very welcoming and they shared their experiences with both travel and the ranch. They let my kids feed the chickens, fish, llamas, and partake a little in farm life. We came for Portland, but also found Oregon City to be very fascinating as the end of the Oregon Trail.
Very friendly hosts and adorable critters! we got to feed the chickens and the llamas - Bandit is the cutest llama I've ever met and is a sweetheart.
The property is beautiful and while the driveway is steep it was totally manageable in our 34-ft class A! (they are not kidding about that 13% grade though - big thanks for giving me a ride back up after i walked down!)
if the opportunity arises i would be delighted to stay here again!
What a fabulous, tranquil environment! Beautiful location and gracious, helpful host family! We’re so thankful for the experience!
This was my 2nd stay with a host, and it was just as good as the first one. It is a beautiful setting and a great location. Would highly recommend staying here.
We arrived late in the day about 7pm. Bunny met us and showed us where to park and where the hookups are. The property is very nice and private. We were tired and kept to ourselves. We would highly recommend staying with the Blounts. We're hoping to get our place setup for travelers. This experience helped us make up our minds on hosting. Thank-you.
Couldn’t stay for long but Bob and Jan made us feel nice and welcome for it!
We had a wonderfully time at Tripod Ranch Robert and Familey have a very beautiful place and where great host, we felt very welcome.
I have stayed with the Hosts several times and find them to be warm open and generous with their time and referrals for things to see or do in the area. If you are in need of RV repair, Bob could advise you very well for he is extremely knowledgeable of RV's and all things mechanical or electrical.
The property is AMAZING! beautiful views of the Mount Hood from the Lodge! A trout pond outside the place where you park your RV! Chicken coop on the other side of your RV - you definitely feel out in the country. The driveway is a little steep and trees on both sides but no sharp humps to navigate and if you drive slowly it is very easy.
Always a great time when visiting, I cannot recommend it enough!
