Fagan's Haven offers a quiet, calm place to stay while visiting family or local events. A highlight is the 24 X 48 ft. studio with superior lighting and workspace geared particularly to quilting and sewing but equally suited to writing, drawing, study, small meetings, or just a place to retreat and daydream. Located 30 minutes east of Portland, Oregon off Hwy 212. And oh yes - a superb view of Mt. Hood.

This is a homey, comfortable, relaxed retreat, that is extremely dog friendly. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend staying with Jane.

I am with a quilting group that books three times a year for four days. You will never find a better place with all the entities found in the studio. You need and forgot something, just ask our hostess. She is the hostess with the mostest. And a top meal preparer. She loves trying new recipes and has such a flair with presentation. And desserts....always so yummy!! Just an amazing setting and relaxing ordeal with lots of fun and goodies. Totally recommend.

My Mom and I just spent 5 nights at this wonderful B&B. On the way home, my Mom (87) said she just didn't know where else we could go and feel so welcomed and relaxed, and I totally agree. It was a wonderful time for both of us. We sewed, laughed, ate WONDERFUL food, fed the ducks and sewed some more. We are looking forward to returning!!

We had the extended family (several families) staying here for a wedding event this summer. It's a very quiet and clean B&B, and features an Oregon themed decor, well done. Jane was very accommodating and hospitable during our stay. It's very easy to come and go. The coffee is great! My grand daughter really enjoyed watching the ducks out back. We enjoyed a comfortable stay in a private and semi-rural setting with views of Mt. Hood. Thanks so much for your hospitality Jane, it made our wedding event memorable!

It's a rare and special place that creates a welcoming and peaceful escape for a family vacationing with a young son and a large dog. Fagan's Haven, with its comfortable room opening onto an expanse of trees and lawn and its glorious, full-to-bursting breakfasts, is just about perfect. We even got to feed the ducks. I can't imagine a better place to stay in Oregon.

We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our time there. Great bed, fun decor, enjoyed the ducks, and loved the quilts. The breakfast was outstanding.

While taking a weaving class at Damascus Fiber Arts School for a week, I stayed at Fagan's. The School had recommended this and I'm really glad I did as I don't normally stay at B&Bs. Very comfortable, relaxed atmosphere - far superior than staying in a motel. Wonderful hostess and delicious food - far beyond my expectations.

A casual atmosphere and comfy bed made our first night away from home with a baby very do-able.

Wow! Wonderful meals, country setting -- close to home but far enough away to enjoy -- friends made -- sewing library enormous -- lots of tips to make quilting easier!

I had the opportunity to be Jane's guest at Fagan's Haven in March of 2010 thanks to a reference from a friend of mine. And while I've never been too keen on the B&B gig, this experience certainly changed my mind! The Haven (as it's come to be called, and for good reason) is within commuting distance of Portland (the reason I had traveled to Oregon), has a choice of themed rooms (with handmade quilts on every bed) and incredible views. And the food! Jane, the owner, makes waking up in the morning a treat with the smells of coffee (or tea) and a spread of food the likes of which you'd expect to see on a ranch. She was also very concerned as to whether I had any dietary needs or allergies (which I don't, but that she'd inquiried made me feel even more taken care of). Even better, when I offered to clear the table (it's her dining room, after all and I wanted to be polite), she refused! It was terrific! The only drawback to the entire weekend was the rain, but you can hardly hold that against The Haven. Jane's ducks seemed to enjoy it just fine, though.

My passions are cooking, quilting, gardening, and my two grandchildren. As my grandkids live in Anchorage, I strive to make my guests the center of attention with skills I learned mostly from my mother - a true farmer's daughter and one of the most amazing women I ever knew. My established guests have granted me permission to experiment in the kitchen while they quilt, sew, craft, read, draw, paint, or just relax by the fire in the studio. Get a group of your best friends and come play.

Like Mom Made It
I have no "signature" dish, but lots of guest favorites. There are truly some high quality convenience foods and I use some. But generally, I avoid boxes and cook from scratch. I have many guests who send ahead recipes they would like to try but haven't had time. And "experiment on the guest day" is becoming a Haven tradition.
