Wapiti Cabin on the Beautiful Powder River

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The River Runs Through It! Wapiti Cabin is located on 18 acres of private ground just off Hwy 7 with the Powder River running through it. Great rainbow trout fishing spring, summer and fall. The Powder River is an excellent place to fly fish or to learn to fly fish. Phillips Reservoir is 5 miles up the road and offers boating, swimming or fishing. It's a short ride to the mountains (Anthony Lakes), Historical Baker City or Sumpter. We fondly refer to this property as 'the cabin' when it is really a very nice house with easy access and an open layout. Each bedroom has a king size log bed with a sofa bed in the living room. It has a fully-equipped kitchen, laundry facilities and all the amenities that make for a comfortable stay. We pride ourselves in keeping the cabin extremely clean and maintained.

You will enjoy the serenity of the river or watching the elk, deer, wild turkeys and numerous birds. We also raise a small heard of alpacas that roam the area.

Keywords: Wapiti Cabin is located about 12 miles from Baker City. It is on Highway 7 between Baker City and Sumpter along the Powder River with lots of room to roam and a country setting.

lovely, quiet and healing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really needed to get away for a weekend and took a chance on this. It was everything we needed and more. The Alpacas were great, and we saw two bucks and a family of turkeys as well. We sat on the porch and read for hours, enjoying the sound of the Powder river. I suspect we'll be back.

Private Getaway for ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time at this private, quiet and thoroughly peaceful location. It sits tucked away off highway 7 about 9 miles from Baker City. Anthony Lakes ski resort was only an hour away. We made a point of getting up and getting our coffee and breakfast at The Geiser Grand and then off on our adventure up to Anthony Lakes for an enjoyable three days of Nordic skiing. When we got back to the cabin after each day of great skiing, we made a point of making a wonderful crackling fire in the big fireplace, got in our pajamas and read and talked all in a warm and cozy setting. We were pleasantly surprised at not only the size of the beds, but how comfortable both beds were. We slept like babies!!! We both enjoyed the silence and calmness of the area, tucked away in the various Ponderosa pines, shrubs and various other species of trees. Working with Darlene was very easy and pleasant. We felt like we had the whole area to ourselves! We will be back without a doubt the next time we are in this vicinity!

Beautiful setting, meticulously clean!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Wapiti Cabin multiple times over the last few years and have always been impressed with my experience. The cabin has always been spotless and I have never had a problem with any kind of bugs as the previous reviewer has. It appears I stayed at the cabin shortly after the last reviewer who claimed the cabin had bed bugs, but I didn't have the same experience. The cabin was clean as usual. When I am in the area, I make it a point to reserve this home and I consider the owner one of the best in the VRBO business!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah for your great review. We have had several people question us about the bed bugs the previous renter alluded to, but none of our renters seem to have noticed any. I question why the renter waited a whole month to report something so important, but we did fumigate and thoroughly clean all the bedding and furniture for our peace of mind. However, we are so happy that you two keep coming back to Wapiti Cabin. Thank you for choosing our property when you are in our area!

This property has bed bugs

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here last month for 3 days and came home with bed bugs. Although the cabin was neat and clean and the setting is awesome. I would not stay here again unless I was assured that they had taken care of the bed bug situation. Its going to cost me a small fortune to get rid of them.

Owner's Response: We have checked with all 6 families who have stayed at Wapiti Cabin since and no reports of bed bugs. We will definitely fumigate to ease our minds, and as usual the bedding will be thoroughly cleaned and replaced. Sincerely, Dennis and Darlene
