About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom bunkhouse on a working farm.

Triple H Homestead is a working farm located just outside Monument in Northern Grant County, 60 miles from John Day and 150 miles northeast of Bend. Our farm makes a great place to stay while you visit the surrounding John Day area.

Cozy Bunkhouse accommodation features three bedrooms to comfortably sleep six people with all linens, pillows and quilts provided as well as fluffy towels and our own hand crafted guest soaps. The main Bunkhouse has a comfortable settee and recliner easy chair where you can watch one of our films on the VCR/DVD player or bring your own movies if you wish. The kitchen features an antique wood/electric combination stove as well as all the modern conveniences. A microwave, fridge, coffee maker, espresso maker, blender, all crockery, cutlery and pots and pans are provided as well as a propane BBQ for your grilling needs. Enjoy your meals inside at the dining room table or sit on the back deck watching an early morning sunrise or relax in the evening to the sounds of dove, pheasant and the occasional wild turkey. Please note we are a non-smoking establishment.

For your breakfast enjoyment our fresh full cream organic milk, butter, home raised and cured bacon, sausage and fresh laid eggs are available for a modest fee. When in season, stroll down to the garden to pick ripe raspberries, corn, potatoes or other fresh veggies to add to your meals.

We have stable accommodation for your horse complete with pine shaving bedding and water tubs, just bring your own hay and grain. For those bringing their own equine companion, Rose is a well known riding instructor and may be booked for private lessons, English or Western, or feel free to head 'out back' and explore the numerous trails on our land. A few miles up the road there is easy access to the National Forrest for your equitreking adventures! Please inquire as to horse accommodation pricing.

Our farm makes the perfect place to stay while exploring the surrounding attractions. Just down the road you will find Thomas Orchards at Kimberly with seasonal fruit such as cherries, apricots, peaches, apples and pears at the fruit stand or 'U-pick' from late June through October. The noted John Day Fossil Beds National Monument and Thomas Condon visitor’s center with the fascinating Painted Hills Unit is just a comfortable drive away. Visit the famous Kam Wah Chung museum in John Day or just spend some time on the banks of the John Day River catching an evening meal of small mouth bass.

Located in the Heppner wildlife unit, our farm makes a cozy base camp for your deer or elk hunting excursions.

Whether you enjoy hiking, cycling, touring by car or just seeking a place away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, our farm can be your home away from home. No internet, no cell phone service, no television… just the peace and quiet of country life on a working farm. We look forward to having you come to visit.

About Rose Howe

We have lived in Monument since 1995 after buying bare land with only an old school house on it and have built everything ourselves that you see and feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area of Eastern Oregon. Darrell is a retired electrical contractor, Rose is originally from England and is one of the local Monument Volunteer Ambulance EMT's as well as a well known riding instructor, soap crafter, sausage & cheese maker. Darrell is a Classic Car enthusiast who always has a project car to work on in the garage!

We raise a large garden each year as well as our own beef, pork and produce many different types of cheese which we enjoy sharing with folk.

Rose Howe purchased this farmhouse in 1995

What makes this farmhouse unique

A chance to see life on a working farm, from feeding pigs, watching cheese being made or cream separated from the morning milking, gathering eggs from the hen house... all the in peaceful setting of Pines and pastures. No cell phones, no internet, no distractions, just open space, fresh air and starry skies...

A getaway like none other!

  • 5 of 5

Rose & Darrell and their brood of gentle farm animals - the baby bull, cows, turkey, rooster and chickens both big and small, Ramona (the pig) and her friends, many friendly birds, Sarge, Luke and Colt (the horses) - with their generous and heartwarming hospitality made this one of the most memorable vacations for our young family.

The accommodations are exactly are promised, rustic yet comfortable and the hospitality is unparalleled. The kitchen was perfectly stocked for many lovely dinners indoors and on the picnic benches under the trees. The water trough set up as a pool for our kids added to the charm. Rose was such an enthusiastic and patient teacher that our children woke up missing the chickens on their first day back home. Easy drives to the John Day National Monuments, Painted Hills, Thomas Condon Museum and a collection of home-style eateries in the area made this a fun adventure.

For those of us looking to step away/disconnect and remind ourselves what really matters in life, the Triple H Homestead is a must-visit. Thank you Rose & Darrell.

Peaceful family vacation on rustic farm

  • 5 of 5

The rental was as advertised. Very rustic, away from any civilization, no wifi. It was great to get away with our kids. Rose was wonderful with showing the kids how her farm works and sharing her homesteading lifestyle. She is a great hostess. We visited the painted hills and different parts of the John day area and museums. Fishing and tadpole finding on the north fork of the John Day river at monument park was lovely and serene. The rental would work great for people who do horseback riding they had plenty of land and stables for horses. Just a beautiful spot!

we loved farm living

  • 5 of 5

we loved staying at the triple h homestead. what amazing hosts - they treated us like family. we learned all about the farm and hung out with chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows. we even saw brand new baby piglets. the kids were in heaven.

the lodging is nice but a bit rugged for city folk - yet had everything we needed. it was nice to feel like we were learning about only using what you needed and making the most of everything nature has to offer you.

if you haven't been to this part of oregon it is truly breathtaking and so much to see. but it is in the middle of nowhere- so be prepared to be relatively far from any other ammenities.

Owner's Response: It was delightful to have your family come to visit Amy. Yes, we certainly are a tad off the beaten track and definitely not The Hilton! I think your description aptly describes our amenities so as to prepare other "city folk" for a country experience. Thank you so much!

“EXCEPTIONAL!”

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was exceptional!! The Bunkhouse is PERFECT!! Rose & Darrel (the owners) have not forgotten a thing!! There is attention to detail at every turn.

Rose stocked the fridge with items that we requested fresh milk, cheese, eggs, pork gammon (bacon), pork chops, fresh tomatoes and potatoes right out of the garden.

The cabin was very comfortable and well supplied. Towels, bedding, dishes, pots & pans and a gas grill. We usually ate breakfast and supper at the cabin. While we went hunting or seeing museums during the day.

Rose is an exceptional master butcher, after procured our deer Rose made quick work of getting it cleaned up and in the cooler. With Rose’s eye for detail and skill with the culinary knife she produced some quality cuts of meat in a matter of minutes. We were able to go home with our deer all wrapped and packaged up for our 6 hour trip home.

We were very pleased with our deer meat, our bright, clean and charming cabin. All was just as promised by Rose and Darrell.

Thank you for the exceptional hospitality while we enjoyed your bunkhouse.

Best family vacation in the world

  • 5 of 5

Talk about glamping...a true ranch experience with an amazing host. Amazing views of the Wild West and the John Day River with easy access to fishing, swimming, hiking...and the night views of the stars will put any city to shame.

Rose is amazing. My young daughters and I got to interact with horses, pigs, cows, turkeys, rabbits and even a few deer. We got to help Rose make cheese and every morning ate fresh bacon, eggs, and milk straight from the farm. The bunk house is very clean and has all amenities including well-kept bathrooms and kitchen.

This is truly a spiritual experience that I highly recommend for any family.

Visit the famous Kam Wah Chung museum in John Day, head to historic Prairie City or just spend some time on the banks of the John Day River catching an evening meal of small mouth bass or catfish.

July 4th activities in Monument include a great Farmer's Market, parade, fireworks display and other events. Local Farmer's Markets can be found in John Day each Saturday plus Thomas Orchards host a craft market the second Sunday of each month July through October. For the Classic Car enthusiast there are car shows in Spray, Fossil, and John Day during the summer!
