Property description

We invite you to enjoy our secluded, peaceful, custom house in scenic Northeastern Oregon. The handcrafted house is conveniently located in the foothills of the Wallowa Mountains, the Western gateway to the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Hiking, fishing, skiing, and mountaineering opportunities abound. Wildlife roams in profusion.The Wallowas and the Elkhorn Crest provide excellent backcountry skiing opportunities. For a more civilized skiing experience the Anthony Lakes ski area is only about 50 minutes away and provides maintained Nordic trails and alpine skiing. The town of Union is six miles away, with its collection of Victorian homes, the Hot Lake Hot Springs and a most charming Victorian cemetery. La Grande and Baker City are also nearby. On the other side of the Wallowas, Hells Canyon and the Joseph/Enterprise area provide additional recreational opportunities.

SKIERS! Please ask about half price lift ticket vouchers for the Anthony Lakes ski area. We will offer up to one for each guest for each day you stay. This offer begins Thanksgiving Day, and is valid until Anthony Lakes closes for the season, or we run out of vouchers.

The area affords ORV opportunities. If you wish to bring your vehicles, please do not ride them on the property.

The house itself is like no other. The home has been remodeled with custom detail. The gleaming wood floors have inlaid patterns, the cathedral ceilings are open beam, and the kitchen is open to the house for easy interactions with family and friends. The bedrooms boast window seats which may urge you to indulge in a good read. On a cool evening relax by the gas fireplace, or stoke up the woodstove. In another mood, enjoy the hot tub on the porch while you gaze across the valley. The house sits on its own 48 acres, so you will have to look sharply to see another house! Deer, elk and other wildlife are plentiful and roam the hillside and meadow.

Kids are welcome at the house, but if you have very small children we may want to talk. The house is not in any way child-proofed. It has a shower, but no tub for splashing little ones in, and the stairs to the loft are not for playing on. We want you to enjoy your stay, so please keep this in mind. No pets are allowed.
