Provides a restful haven to relax your mind and renew your spirit. The facility was once the working bronze studio of local well known artist J. Shirley Bothum. Sleeps 6 including one King Bed w/ private river deck, one Queen room and a futon. This is a traditional studio space and so the wall dividers are industrial style and do not provide an enclosed room, but do provide plenty of privacy with extremely comfortable beds. We can accommodate pets, as long as they stay off of the furniture and beds, for a small additional fee. We have paddock and pasture facilities for the equine guests as well (see additional charges of $10/night). Studio includes work space, free wifi and appointed kitchenette with large dining table and an outdoor grill. The studio and riverfront deck can accommodate small events beautifully. Our private space is two minutes from town but feels a world away.
Guest House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Like living in a museum of Western Art!
Judy's husband was a cowboy and a sculptor, and this little bungalow is crammed full of his and other artists' beautiful work...both paintings and sculptors. The beds are unbelievable...they are the most comfortable we have ever slept on. Judy arranged for us to go our a tour where they make molds and then finish the sculptors...it was excellent. The quarters are adequate...not 5 star...but homey, quaint, adequate, and very clean. Judy was very helpful with everything we asked of her. Of course, how could you possibly have a more glorious landscape...awesome!
Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Judy is nice as can be, and super helpful. The CRR was a cozy little spot that was perfect for my family, and a quick trip puts you right in the heart of the Wallowas.
Thank you... what a sweet baby!
Easy check in. Judy left a note on the door and we let ourselves in. The river outback is beautiful and there was snow in the mountains. Judy was helpful, giving us a pot to cook our soup and helping with the fickle internet. Nice bed and sheets. It was such a beautiful setting! So glad we could bring the pup
Fantastic Place With a Complete Western Theme
I am not overly verbose, but this was the high point of a three week road trip for us. Conveniently located near Joseph and Enterprise Oregon, this venue is rural and western to the core. Deer wandered around the property both evening and morning, cattle grazed in adjacent fields and you could listen to their lowing calls. We are birders, and there were lots of activity throughout the area for us.
The proprietor was on hand and a delightful individual. If we had any concerns, and those were very few, she took care of it immediately. The Retreat is artfully decorated with western and pioneer art, bronzes, and furniture. There is a sitting room, kitchen, bath and two bedrooms. The deck on the rear extends over the Wallowa River, and provided a backdrop of soft sounds that were very restful. All in all, it was the perfect place and our four nights there were perfection.
Thank you so much! My goal has been to keep Shirlys life alive! Also the authenticity of real western life! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay!
Exploring Joseph and area
We loved the charm & cowboy rustic atmosphere. The studio provided the quiet we enjoy. The sound of the river just steps from the studio was a pleasant addition to our stay. Recommending the studio to friends visiting the Joseph area.
Thank you so much! I do enjoy my guests!
Peaceful and beautiful
My family and I LOVED staying at this beautiful place. The home was very warm and inviting and very cozy. The decor was very cute and the location was peaceful. We slept with the door facing the creek open both nights and were able to fall asleep to the sound of the creek. My daughter loved getting to see the horses and enjoy cooling off in the creek behind the house as well. Perfect location from town too. Will definitely be staying here again in the future!
