Holiday Farm Fire Impact – 2020

85% of our sq footage was destroyed, this included all of our meeting space, our kitchen and our lodge rooms.

2 Homes and an Office/Support building were spared by the fire – including River Glen Cottage and Bear Mountain Cabin. While spared from the flames, smoke damage required extensive rehab.  

The remodeled homes are housing local fire victims. (Over 500 homes were destroyed, over a year later, less than 100 have been rebuilt.)

We do not have a reopen timeline yet.  The community of Blue River was given a grant by the State of Oregon to build a new water system and a community sewer.  This infrastructure rebuild will delay our rebuild until that work is completed (3-5 years).

A Place to Unwind

The original guard station (or Ranger Home) was built about 1890-1910. Local lore says the house was build aroudn a pre existing fireplace from a previous home.

Our 3.5 acre facility sits next to Blue River, with the small town of blue river a quick walk away over the bridge.

There’s a fairly productive fishing hole right off the property.  In the evening you can gather around the fire pit and treat yourself to s’mores and reminisce about your earlier adventures during the day.
