About the Property

Cozy & Complete

One of 6 places we have. If this is taken, inquire anyway for possible cancellations or other openings. (It has been taken for the 8/21/2017 eclipse.)
November 2016 may or may not be available, dependent on a clients house closing date.
The Bungalow is located on N. Canyon Boulevard, close to the County Fairground, in the town of John Day, Oregon. It is a perfect vacation home for families or an ideal location as a corporate lodging facility for those coming for a few days on business in the valley.
The Bungalow is located close to all activities happening in the John Day Valley.
It is central to the entire county including the Strawberry Mt. National Wilderness, the Blue Mts, the John Day Fossil Beds museum and interpretive center, Kimberly Orchards, the entire John Day River system with many swimming and fishing holes, The High Plains of Seneca to the South with Silvies Ranch, the Kam Wah Chung Chinese museum and in yet right in town within walking distance to the Grant County Fairground and parks and downtown.

The Bungalow is completely furnished with a complete kitchen and all the amenities of a nice country retreat, though you won't be roughing it.

The house sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, each with queen beds. There is also a nicely furnished recreation room off the back yard for games and relaxing, as well as additional sleeping capacity with a comfortable queen sleeper sofa.

There is one full bathroom in the home and a laundry area on the back porch. We provide Cable TV and a CD player with numerous videos, internet and local/long distant telephone.

Outside we have a private fenced back yard, including a patio set with umbrella and a Weber grill. The front porch is entirely enclosed with seating area for lounging and a café table for morning coffee.

The driveway is shared with the neighboring house, however, there is parking for one car in a carport at the back of the driveway. Street parking is also easily available right in front.

The Bungalow is totally furnished and equipped. Just bring your suitcase and your groceries. It is beautiful, quiet and clean and we leave the keys in our car in this country.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We came over Dixie Pass, from the east, and bought property that day in 1972, we were so taken with the valley and entire region, and we still are. we own several properties now and are totally here and committed. We also run the John Day Valley Farmers Market every summer.

Why the Owner Chose John Day, OR, USA:
We wanted to provide a vacation rental in town for those who come to the many fairs and events or just want a good central location that is simple to get to.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This Bungalow is right in town and not a big place but totally together and simple. It is a far cry from a motel with a microwave and 150 sq. ft. and reasonably priced for a few people to enjoy together for short visits and events in town. It is air conditioned for summer or winter. Its' recreation room is 16 x 17 ft. and includes the 3rd bed, a queen hide-a-bed with extra padding for comfort. The room has a game table area and games as well as the extra closet as a 3rd room. it is located separately from the main home across the patio from its back door.
