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.

My parents were coming for a visit and they usually stay in a 1 room motel room. We decided to book Dewayne's place for them and they had a great time. This is 5 star all the way. So much more relaxing for them and enjoyed being able to cook for themselves. If you have ever wondered about motel vs furnished home I recommend you give Dewayne's place a try, you will not go back. The owners were great and my parents can't stop talking about the time they had. They told many locals about it and recommended they get it when they have visitors.

The Best Place to Stay in Baker City
The Best Place to Stay in Baker City
I stayed here for a month this winter and enjoyed this home immensely. From top to bottom this is a first class place with all the amenities a person could need. Debbie and Mike, the owners, did an excellent job in remodeling and furnishing this home. The kitchen is great - all new appliances and well designed. I did alot of cooking while I was there and it had everything I needed. The kitchen flows into the living room where there is a really nice flat screen TV, a very good sound system for an ipod, iphone or CD's, and a DVD player. The chairs in the living room are very comfortable too.The bathroom is large with a double vanity and a large soaking tub which I really appreciated and used frequently after a day of skiing at Anthony Lakes. Because I was here in the winter I did not use the large deck off the back door, but I imagine in the summer it will be wonderful to sit outside in the late afternoon and evening, grill out for dinner and enjoy the sunset. All in all I had a great experience at DeWayne's place and I will stay there again while skiing at Anthony Lakes. One last thing - Debbie and Mike were very easy to work with and responsive to all of my questions and requests. They are great owners.

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.
