Ainsworth House & Gardens New Ownership

Ainsworth House & Gardens welcomes new owners John & Christie Shyne!

We are Christie and John Shyne. We are so happy to welcome you to the beauty, elegance, and history of the John C. Ainsworth estate where you can hold your celebration.

Since Christie’s father is originally from Metro Portland, she made many trips from California to the Pacific Northwest in her younger years. John was born and raised in Colorado. We made our first trip to Oregon together in the fall of 2015 for a college visit with our son, Andrew. At that time, we reconnected with nearby family and fell in love with the area! Since then, we made several trips each year. That number increased when our daughter, Anna, joined her brother at the University of Portland. Both our children fell in love with the PNW and we knew we had to join them! Anna will be at Ainsworth with us while she finishes school and Andrew and his fiancée, Jordyn, live in Seattle.

When the opportunity arose to purchase a business in Oregon, we jumped at it! Ainsworth House & Gardens couldn’t be more perfect for us! We are able to take our experience in weddings, sales, and finance and parlay it into an amazing business opportunity while getting closer to our kids and extended family!

We join an existing team of professionals who love what they do. We, and they, will always strive to make your event as memorable as it is meaningful.

Whether you are with us for a wedding, a baptism or christening, a birthday party, a vow renewal, an anniversary party, or a celebration of a life well lived, know that you have just become part of our extended family!

Welcome to Ainsworth House & Gardens! We can’t wait to meet you!
