Baker City bungalow description

DeWayne's Place is a 580 square foot home built in the 1930's C.C.C. Home built during the Roosevelt Administration; built in Pondosa Oregon to house the workers that built Highway 86 which we now call the Hells Canyon Scenic By-Way. After the road was built the houses were torn down, brought into Baker City and resold as kit homes.

Our recent renovations to the home included insulation never seen in the house before, new plumbing, heating, electrical, windows and doors and a completely remodeled interior. We are proud to say we used all local businesses to do this project and furnish the home, other than the bedroom set which is an original set from my husband’s mom and dad.

This one bedroom, one bath home has custom tile work and a deep soaking tub, a kitchen/living area with granite counter tops, custom cabinets filled with everything you need to use our stainless steel appliances and a gas range and make a feast my dad would have wanted to enjoyed with you. Big Screen TV and Mission style reclining chairs in the living room will be a welcome place to relax at the end of a hard day of skiing, hiking, fishing our exploring historic places in the area.

Situated within walking distance of Historic Baker City, Anthony Lakes Ski Resort is just 30 minutes from our front door and Hells Canyon and the Snake River are only an hour east of us.

We won't nickle and dime you with cleaning fees and deposits, just the cleanest, most plush, up to date vacation rental in Baker County for an awesome price.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Mike is owner operator for Baker County Pest Control and Debi runs the Baker County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau for our day jobs. We have made working on DeWayne's Place as our after hours career for the past year and a half.

                          Why the Owner Chose Baker City:
                          DeWayne's Place is named after my Dad, Duane. Dad had a nickname at our house; 'De-Wayne' is his name, fun and laughter is his game. Dad was living in Minnesota and diagnosed with CHF and Diabetes. When he was starting to need some extra help we bought the house next door for him to stay in while he was here visiting with us in Eastern Oregon. But, he never got to see it. It has been said that once you've met Duane, you were automatically friend and family. So my husband and I decided to continue working on the house and make it a place people could visit, after all Duane loved visitors.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                          In this small town of Baker City, you have the unexpected opportunity to feel pampered in a house you would think you can only find in the big city.
