Cool house but it's neglected
Hair left in the shower drain, cobwebs and flies in the windows, dusty furniture, dirty microwave oven, Needs paint outside. Kitchen faucet is loose (not because it's a pullout). This house with its vintage decor has obvious charm and would be pleasant if the time were taken to give it a good cleaning and some maintenance. Can't recommend unless that has been done or your standards are sub par. Not worth the price in current condition.
What a wonderful stay!
This B&B is every bit as lovely as the picture. We particularly liked the spacious, modern shower next to the antique pedestal bathtub. Amie was a gracious, flexible hostess who fed us an enormous breakfast perfectly suited to our dietary needs. My only regret is that we did not have enough time to merely hang out and enjoy the home. (There were plenty of nooks in which to do so. Alas!)
Our family stayed there and it was very nice.
The city was named for William Oakley, the proprietor of a 19th-century stagecoach station located at a spring currently located about 2 miles west of the present townsite known as Oakley Meadows. David B. Haight, former member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was born in Oakley. The small hamlet has served as home to a surprising number of famous Americans. The former governors of Utah and Massachusetts, Mitt Romney can trace their stock to Oakley. Jon Huntsman of Utah is the grandson of David B. Haight, above, and Mitt Romney, of Massachusetts is the son of another famous Oakley-ite, George Romney. Yet another Oakley Romney, Marion G. Romney, was a Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Oakley is also rich in old west lore, such as the tale of Diamondfield Jack, and another story of intrigue, the story of Gobo Fango.
This town of less than 800 people has turned out leaders in politics, business, and entertainment. The town is also home to current Idaho's Assistant House Majority Leader Scott Bedke.
Oakley has become recognized world-wide for its Middle Mountain quarries of Rocky Mountain quartzite building stone known as Oakley Stone. Quarry operators ship out thousand of tons a month to locations around the globe.
Today, many people remark that Oakley is the very last 'Mayberry' left in America, and frequently visited for its Victorian homes.
