In collaboration with Keep It Local Columbia County, I offered two hours of my time on Wednesday, March 15 to provide social media advice for local businesses.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jeri from Scappoose Creek Inn at Cathedral Coffee in Scappoose that day. Jeri and I chatted about Facebook and website updates over coffee and caught up on new developments over the next two hours.
After chatting for a bit, I drove to the location for a quick tour. I was able to see that the red barn and main house with a restaurant—Walt’s Farm to Table belong to a new owner. Llamas, chickens, and pugs no longer roam about. Meanwhile, a new barn is being constructed to complement the Scappoose Creek Inn—currently operating as a bed and breakfast with five guest rooms that can accommodate up to 11 people within The Tannler House.
“Always a pleasure to come back here. Sherry and Jeri are so welcoming and we feel like we are coming home each time. Rooms are unique and we always love the breakfasts. Location off the beaten track but within easy access to Portland.”Tripadvisor Reviewer
I enjoyed spending time with Sherry and Jeri and sent a follow-up email with resources for local businesses that I found helpful. For instance, I added a business listing on Keep It Local Columbia County’s online directory and joined a few of their virtual classes with local business speakers who shared best practices, tips, and tricks to better engage residents and visitors to shop, taste, play, and choose local first.
