Property Description

Special properties available for purchase tend to be few and far between.  And then there is that very small handful of select properties so uniquely special they only come along once in a blue moon.  The Deer Island Stock Ranch is just such a property and is being offered for the first time in nearly 70 years.

Purchased in the 1950s by a successful timber baron as a private hunting and fishing retreat and cattle operation, the ranch presents as a fabled history of a family's connection to a magnificent expanse of land through 5 generations.  With the mighty Columbia River rolling along one border, and a slough meandering along another, this offering of nearly 2,200 acres consists of a mix of forest land, pasture land, year-round lakes, seasonal ponds, tide-controlled sloughs, an island and almost 6 miles of private shoreline.  The simple truth is there is no place like the Deer Island Stock Ranch, anywhere.

Surrounded by unparalleled nature and beauty, the ranch is home to elk, deer, coyote, bald eagles, osprey, hawks, falcons, multiple species of ducks and geese, sandhill cranes, tundra and trumpeter swans and much more.  There always seems to be a wildlife surprise around every corner.  Ever changing with the seasons and ebb and flow of the Columbia, the landscape is equally dynamic and full of natural wonder.

Improvements and amenities include everything needed to comfortably operate the ranch as it has been in the past, or to take it in a new direction limited only by imagination.  Features include...

  • 5,284 sq ft main house with 8 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, custom mahogany built-ins and a grand fireplace that has been the focal point of countless gatherings
  • 1,238 sq ft pool/rec/guest house
  • 1,216 sq ft duck clubhouse with separate locker/decoy room

  • 20,676 sq ft covered arena
  • 8,600 sq ft machine shed
  • 4,760 sq ft shop
  • various hay sheds, lean-tos, machine sheds, etc

Current income sources include...

Scappoose Industrial Airpark offers a 5,100' runway, perfect for private and charter planes, and is an easy 20-minute drive.  Portland International Airport is less than an hour's drive.

The many sporting and recreation opportunities available on the ranch, along with those in nearby Portland, Mount Hood and the Oregon Coast, make this the ultimate playground for those who enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle.  The Deer Island Stock Ranch is a once-in-a-lifetime offering.
