Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: 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.

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