Property description

This vacation rental is 8 miles from John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Cant Ranch, visitor center, and maps of hiking trails.

It is an hours drive away from the Painted Hills one of the 7 Wonders of the World! http://vimeo.com/102547047

This fully furnished accommodation at the Dayville Post Office can be rented as a
3-bedroom 2-bathroom for $108 night. In the fall and winter it can be rented as a 4-bedroom 3-bathroom for an additional $30 night. Besides the tuxedo cat that hangs out at the Post Office and may come and greet you, Dayville has a population of about 150 with a school for 60 students in grades K-12, a mini-market, mercantile, gas station and a cafe. It is located 125 miles east of Bend, in the John Day Valley, at the confluence of the main stem of the John Day River with the South Fork John Day River.

From any direction it is a beautiful drive to Dayville with few cars on the road and majestic views of open landscape with rolling hills. From Portland you can come east on the gorge before heading south through grass lands, Condon, and the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument; from Dayville you can return home through the Indian Reservation in Warm Springs outside Madras and drive over Mount Hood. Dayville is a quiet place to get away to, a place to write a book or just enjoy a simpler life for awhile!

The nights are cold and the days are filled with dry blue skies perfect for hiking the Blue Basin, Time Left Behind, or Black Canyon Trails, going to the Visitor Center, or taking a auto tour through Picture Gorge, the Painted Hills and the Park. Visit historical museums including Kum Wah Chung Museum and Dewitt Rail Road Museum. In the summer months plan a longer stay so you can visit Ritter Hot Springs, Magone Lake and the Strawberry Wilderness Area.

Come, Enjoy and Play in Grant County!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I am a family law mediator, community organizer, curator, host for cyclist biking across the country, and have a bike tour company--Christy I love hosting and sharing the beauty and simplicity of where I live with others.

Why the Owner Chose Dayville:
Our vacation rentals are the closest housing with kitchens to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument Visitor Center. The units are clean, comfortable and spacious. There is a large deck, with picnic table and weber barbecue, to enjoy outdoor meals on. The city park is close by and has playground equipment. There is a little country church with services on Sunday, a mini market with gas, movies, fancy coffee drinks and ices, a mercantile and a cafe. No Smoking is allowed in any of the units.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love Dayville! It is quiet, stress free and healing. No 'have-tos', just peace and quiet. It is sunny and usually 5-10 degrees warmer in Dayville than in John Day or Prairie City. You can walk down main street and easily imagine what it was like 50 years ago.
