About the owner: My family has owned the Ranch property since the 1940s. From that time up until just a few years ago it is was a working cattle ranch. As a family we hope to continue the tradition of having family gathering and reunions at the property. During the times we are not using the property, as a family, we have decided to share it with others so they can experience not only a piece of our family's history, but get a sense of the true rural eastern Oregon lifeways.
Why the Owner Chose Baker City: You can unplug, 'get off the grid', and experience a peacefulness that you might have forgotten that exists in this bustling and techy world that we now live in. You might have forgotten how many stars are in the sky. You might not know that the coyotes howl at 4 am or the birds wake you up every morning at 7 am. Did you know that the deer graze along the fields and mountain sides at dusk? See photos if you don't believe me.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Living in the city for so long, you might want to get back to a more peaceful time and that is why I say, take a step back in time and experience what life was like before our world got so loud and busy.
