About the property


Located just a few miles from the stunning Painted Hills, one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon, our home is spacious and open with modern amenities and relaxing outdoor spaces. We have completely updated the house with all new furniture and beautiful design touches making it the perfect place to stay when exploring Central & Eastern Oregon!

A short walk to Mitchell's Main Street with a brewery, three restaurants, general store, and a gas station, this house is centrally located and but feels very private when relaxing in the back yard.

Our House:

This house has two bedrooms with new queen size beds and memory foam mattresses along with an additional queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Each bed has soft sheets, extra blankets if needed and plenty of pillows.

Our large kitchen has stainless steel appliances including a large refrigerator, dishwasher, new stove, microwave & toaster oven. It is well stocked with dishware and cookware along with cooking staples such as spices and oil making it easy to cook all your favorite meals. We also have a propane grill in our back yard, with propane included!

We have a Keurig single serve coffee maker with several complimentary pods to use and a coffee press if you bring ground coffee (We do not have a coffee grinder).

Our dining table is extendable for seating and we provide extra chairs for seating up to six people.

We have a fenced front yard, and a very large fenced back yard with a covered patio, seating for 6, and cornhole & croquet for entertainment.

We have free wifi, a dvd player with a selection of movies, a Roku streaming device that can be used with your Netflix, Prime or Hulu accounts and books and games. We do not provide cable or satellite tv.

We are also listed on Airbnb (with many more reviews) if that is easier for you to book!

About The Owner

After seeing countless photos of the Painted Hills and the John Day Fossil Beds, we decided to take our first trip to visit and found not only the Hills themselves to be more beautiful than expected, but we fell in love with the entire area and decided to buy a house here after only one visit. While we aren't able to live in Mitchell, Oregon full time, we visit as often as possible and are happy to be able to share our house with others to enjoy as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2016

Why The Owner chose Mitchell

We purchased our house because we loved the open layout and spacious yard and it immediately felt like a place we wanted to spend time. We carefully updated and decorated the house with a simple and modern design aesthetic that felt both welcoming and comfortable and had the house ready to go in late 2016.

Painted Hills accommodation

  • 5 of 5

You won't find better accommodation than this in Mitchell. Modern, clean and very comfortable with everything you need for a short stay. We very much appreciated the air conditioning as temperatures were very high during our stay in late August. Hosts communicated very well and their local contact was very helpful when we left something behind and he arranged to post it on to us. Would definitely recommend this property if you're looking to visit the Painted Hills area.

Car: necessary

Mitchell is the perfect location to explore all that central Oregon has to offer, including the Painted Hills, John Day Fossil Beds and the John Day River for boating and swimming. A car is necessary for all, and a 4 wheel drive recommended for some of the more remote areas

Mitchell is a very small town with a brewery cart, several restaurants, a market with a limited amount of goods and a gas station. The open hours for all can vary depending on the day so you may want to prepare for that and cell phone service can be limited to non existent.
