'GRACIE' is located in THE HISTORIC PALMER HOUSE' vintage 1906. Come and stay in the Palmer House and feel a part of Baker history just 2 blocks walks from the heart of downtown historic Baker City! Did you know that Baker City was once slated to be the Portland of Oregon? The magnificent old stone buildings of the town seemingly give credence to this.

The entire 1300' sq. ft. ground level of The Palmer House we call 'Gracie' for its charm that remains from its 1906 origin! It is well lit with north and east wall windows sporting a 'sunny' disposition! The tastefully painted colors only enliven its sunny rays! It is two queen bed, one full/queen size futon sofa couch. The kitchen is efficiently stocked to serve 6-8 an easy spaghetti dinner after skiing Anthony Lakes or riding the Elkhorn or boating/fishing the local and beautiful Philips reservoir! The decor is colorfully pulled together to create an atmosphere of fun with sincerity intertwined! Drink your morning coffee in the Sun Room and watch the local Baker neighborhood scene go by! The location is in the 'fringe' of downtown - the heart of where local Baker City livin' starts! Leave your car at the curb and walk to art museum (1block), have coffee @ Mad Matilda's, breatkfast at Lone Pine, lunch at happenin bakery', grab a libation @ the local brewery or hear live music at the wine bar! Just step out Gracie's door! The Palmer House guarantees clean, clean, clean! High speed internet and cable tv included.

HELLO! We are owners Kelly Esterbrook and Jimmi Terhaar. We love BAKER CITY and coming over to ski, hike, ride our bikes and most of all working on The Palmer House! We found it, fell in love with it and felt it deserved the respect of its graceful, prominent lore in Baker history! So we have endeavored to bring it new color and creative life working on it when we can s l o w down (what we love about Baker!) and get there from our hometown of Bend, OR. We hope you enjoy the Palmer House as we restore...create..and with NEW LIFE!

Why KELLY chose Eastern Oregon

We really got excited about Baker City, coming from Bend and having been long time residents of Bend; Baker was like the 'OLD BEND' only with more history in its buildings. Downtown is so very cool...big stone buildings..old Victorian houses.. We came to ski Anthony Lakes and loved the small community of skiing there. The Nordic while small is world class! Snow is light and fluffy! We feel a slower pace the minute we hit town!

What makes this apartment unique

We love the detail of 'this OLD HOUSE! The higher ceilings, the antique moldings and stained glass.. the roominess of it all! It has 2 living rooms with a beautiful old fireplace ( now with safe electric fire ambience)! I especially love the Sun Room.... relaxing...

Great location and comfortable setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable, conveniently located and well equipped. Our family wanted a relaxing setting to gather together, which is exactly what we got. It was an easy walk downtown, and when we chose to stay in it was perfect for evening board games and conversation. We highly recommend it.

Lovely HOme

  • 3 of 5

Gracie, at The Palmer House is a quaint, cozy place to stay. Although small, the kitchen provides all the amenities needed for a stay while in Baker City. The bedrooms are spacious & comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the sun room in the morning w/ a good cup of coffee. Good access to down town & very walkable to local sights.

A comfortable home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

We were initially impressed with how clean and inviting the spacious living rooms and bedrooms appeared. There were plenty of comfy chairs and couches for lounging, and a fireplace to gather around.

We came prepared to do most of our own cooking and found the kitchen to be well appointed with colorful dishes and practical cookware. There was a crockpot that produced one of our best dinners and electric beaters to whip up a fancy dessert.

The location is great, within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops in the old downtown district. Customer service was very good; the owner thoughtfully provided half price tickets for the Anthony Lakes ski area (which we enjoyed greatly). I highly recommend "Gracie" and hope to return on a future vacation.
