Baker City apartment description

'GRACIE' is located in THE HISTORIC PALMER HOUSE' vintage 1906. Come and stay in the Palmer House and feel a part of Baker history just 2 blocks walks from the heart of downtown and explore historic Baker City! Did you know that Baker City was once slated to be the Portland of Oregon? The magnificent old stone buildings of the town seemingly give credence to this.

Our offering to you; this unit; the entire ground level of The Palmer House we call 'Gracie' for its charm that remains from its 1906 origin! It is well lit with north and east wall windows sporting a 'sunny' disposition! The tastefully painted colors only enliven its sunny rays! It is now fully furnished; two queen bed, one full/queen size futon sofa couch. The kitchen is efficiently stocked to serve 6-8 an easy spaghetti dinner after skiing Anthony Lakes or riding the Elkhorn or boating/fishing the local and beautiful Philips reservoir! The decor is colorfully pulled together to create an atmosphere of fun with sincerity intertwined! Drink your morning coffee in the Sun Room and watch the local Baker neighborhood scene go by! The location is in the 'fringe' of downtown - the heart of where local Baker City livin' starts! Leave your car at the curb and walk to art museum (1block), have coffee or lunch at happenin bakery', grab a libation @ the local brewery or hear live music at the wine bar! Just step out Gracie's door! The Palmer House guarantees clean, clean, clean! High speed internet and cable tv included. Google 'visitbakercity' for more local information!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: HELLO! We are owners Kelly Esterbrook and Jimmi Terhaar. We love BAKER CITY and coming over to ski, hike, ride our bikes and most of all working on The Palmer House! We found it, fell in love with it and felt it deserved the respect of its graceful, prominent lore in Baker history! So we have endeavored to bring it new color and creative life working on it when we can s l o w down (what we love about Baker!) and get there from our hometown of Bend, OR. We hope you enjoy the Palmer House as we endeavor....to restore...create..and color...it with NEW LIFE!

                  Why the Owner Chose Baker City:
                  We really got excited about Baker City, coming from Bend and having been long time residents of Bend; Baker was like the 'OLD BEND' only with more history in its buildings. Downtown is so very cool...big stone buildings..old Victorian houses.. We came to ski Anthony Lakes and loved the small community of skiing there. The Nordic while small is world class! Snow is light and fluffy! We feel a slower pace the minute we hit town!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  We love the detail of 'this OLD HOUSE! The higher ceilings, the antique moldings and stained glass.. the roominess of it all! It has 2 living rooms with a beautiful old fireplace ( now with safe electric fire ambience)! I especially love the Sun Room.... relaxing...
