Until March 15th, I am offering a Complementary 3rd night! If you make your reservation for 2 nights (before March 15), I will offer you a complimentary additional night at either end of your reservation.
The unit is large, about the size of a duplex, with a fully equipped kitchen and table seating for 8, deck, picnic table and Weber Barbecue.
There are 2-bedrooms and 2-bathrooms on the main level; one bedroom has a Queen Bed and the other bedroom has two XL Twin Beds. The bathrooms, across the hall from each bedroom, are newly remodeled; one has a large easy step in shower and the other has a large tub/shower combo.
The 3rd bedroom, located downstairs from the kitchen is a daylight basement with XL twin bed, small couch, table, small fridge, bathrooms with shower and flat screen TV with HDMI cord (there is no television reception).
Dayville has a population between 150 and 200. There's a school for the 58 students, a mini-market with gas, coffee drinks, and DVD rentals, a mercantile with a liquor shop and bike shop, a Growler Fill Station with ice cream and sandwiches and a café with generous portions and delicious pies (open Wed 7:00 am -Sunday 3:00 pm).
Dayville is 125 miles east of Bend, in the John Day Valley, at the confluence of the main stem of the John Day River with the South Fork John Day River, 4.5 hours from Portland Airport and 4 hours from Boise Airport. From any direction it is a beautiful drive to Dayville with few cars on the road and majestic views of open landscape with rolling hills. From Portland I suggest you head east on the Gorge before heading south at Biggs Jct, east at Wasco and traveling through the windmill covered grass lands, Condon, Fossil, Spray and the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. From Dayville, traveling back to Portland, if summer traffic will not be bad, I would stay on Hwy 26 to Prineville and Madras and the road will take you through the Indian Reservation in Warm Springs and over Mount Hood to Sandy.
Dayville is a quiet place to stay, a place to get away to, a place to write a book or just enjoy a simpler life for awhile!
Currently, Verizon is the only carrier providing cell coverage to Dayville. There is a land line for emergencies and for receiving calls.
The Wi-Fi is good and there is a flat screen TV, HDMI cord, access to Netflix and DVD's for children, but no television reception.
The nights are cold and the days are filled with dry blue skies perfect for hiking the Blue Basin, Time Left Behind, or Black Canyon Trails, going to the Visitor Center, or taking an auto tour through Picture Gorge, the Painted Hills and the Park. My favorite historical museums in the area are the Kum Wah Chung Museum in John Day and Dewitt Rail Road Museum in Prairie City. In the summer months plan a longer stay if you would like to visit Ritter Hot Springs, Magone Lake and the Strawberry Wilderness Area.
Come, Enjoy and Play in Grant County!
