Thank you Prairie City! Comfortable, well-equipped, and location location location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the All-American Total Solar Eclipse weekend at the Prairie Rose, and we were SO incredibly lucky to do so. Our stay was centered around the once-in-a-lifetime event, which exceeded expectations. As did the house! It is roomy yet cozy, with a well-equipped kitchen full of great tools to cook--we didn't eat out once (except at the special beer garden, staged by our hosts in town), and wanted for nothing. There were eight of us in our party, and there was plenty of space for everyone to sprawl out, especially on the beautiful wrap-around porch with brand new porch swing. We had many a cup of coffee and happy hour out there. Wifi was easy to connect to and fast. Lots of other common spaces to share for meals and general hanging out, inside and outdoors. Beds were clean and comfortable, in themed bedrooms thoughtfully decorated. The house is close to town (a block or so), so that we could watch all the goings on, and feel like part of the neighborhood. Everyone we met in Prairie City was warm and friendly, and excited for the eclipse. Hostess Jannet and her family were wonderfully hospitable and responsive, and it was amazing to be here for this singular event. All eight of us had a memorable stay, and we couldn't recommend this home more enthusiastically. Thank you, Jannet, and thank you, Prairie City!

Owner's Response: Barbara & Crew, So glad you found the Guesthouse to be everything you needed. It was great to meet you and Jerry and visit with you. I'm also glad you won the eclipse stay 'lottery' for the Guesthouse. Thank you for leaving everything so neat & tidy as well. Jannet

A Prairie Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The family came from Scappoose, Boise, and La Pine anticipating a great visit with close and extended family in the area. We were NOT disappointed. The house was perfect and more than we anticipated. It had a refined Prairie Spirit; warm, welcoming, homey atmosphere. The town is low keyed, friendly, and very enjoyable to visit. We will definitely return sometime.

Fantastic visit in Prairie City

  • 5 of 5

We are so appreciative of Dave and Jannet's hospitality. The Prairie Rose Guesthouse was a wonderful place to gather with family and friends, have supper and cool off. The house is charming and accommodates visitors of various ages so well. Many nice touches. The kitchen is well equipped and thoughtfully labelled. We found Dave and Jannet to be very responsive and welcoming hosts. A terrific place to experience the charm of eastern Oregon!

There are many great museums in Grant County covering the gold mining history as well as the ranching history of this area. Plenty of opportunity for outdoor activity... only 13 miles from Strawberry Wilderness Trailheads. A day trip could take you to the John Day fossil beds heading west, or heading east you will find The Sumpter Valley Railroad or further on Oregon Trail Interpretive Center.
