Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday bungalow in Baker City - DeWayne's Place Vaca Rental

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

DeWayne's Place is a 580 square foot home built in the 1930's C.C.C. Home built during the Roosevelt administration; built in Pondosa Oregon to house the workers that built Highway 86 which we now call the Hells Canyon Scenic By-Way. After the road was built the houses were torn down, brought into Baker City and resold as kit homes.

Our recent renovations to the home included insulation never seen in the house before, new plumbing, heating, electrical, windows and doors and a completely remodeled interior. We are proud to say we used all local businesses to do this project and furnish the home, other than the bedroom set which is an original set from my husband’s mom and dad.

This one bedroom, one bath home has custom tile work and a deep soaking tub, a kitchen/living area with granite counter tops, custom cabinets filled with everything you need to use our stainless steel appliances and a gas range and make a feast my dad would have wanted to enjoyed with you. Big screen TV and mission style reclining chairs in the living room will be a welcome place to relax at the end of a hard day of skiing, hiking, fishing our exploring historic places in the area.

Situated within walking distance of Historic Baker City, Anthony Lakes Ski Resort is just 30 minutes from our front door and Hells Canyon and the Snake River are only an hour east of us.

We won't nickle and dime you with cleaning fees and costly deposits, just the cleanest, most plush, up to date vacation rental in Baker County for an awesome price.

About Debi Bainter

Mike is owner operator for Baker County Pest Control and Debi runs the Baker County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau for our day jobs. We have made working on DeWayne's Place as our after hours career for the past year and a half.

Debi Bainter purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Debi Bainter chose Eastern Oregon

DeWayne's Place is named after my Dad, Duane. Dad had a nickname at our house; 'De-Wayne' is his name, fun and laughter is his game.

Dad was living in Minnesota and diagnosed with CHF and Diabetes. When he was starting to need some extra help we bought the house next door for him to stay in while he was here visiting with us in Eastern Oregon. But, he never got to see it.

It has been said that once you've met Duane, you were automatically friend and family. So my husband and I decided to continue working on the house and make it a place people could visit, after all Duane loved visitors.

What makes this bungalow unique

In this small town of Baker City, you have the unexpected opportunity to feel pampered in a house you would think you can only find in the big city.

We enjoyed our stay in Debi's one bedroom guest house! Books, movies, comfy chairs and a short walk to the grocery store, park and river trail. Thank you Debi!

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Debi has done a wonderful job of making the little cottage very comfortable. She has definitely thought through everything a person may need when renting a house. She was great about finding us a safe place for our bicycles and gave us some awesome peaches!! It is in a great location to walk or ride bikes downtown. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We found it very warm and cozy.

We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Excellent, comfortable and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little place. All of the necessary comforts. Great kitchen, fully stocked and ready to cook. Backyard and deck were a relaxing oasis. The bedroom was well appointed, comfortable and clean bedding. Fans throughout were welcome for some cool air. Bathroom was great and had all we needed. The TV and surround system were perfect for winding down at night. Thanks for a great stay!

Loved Baker City, loved Dewayne's Place

  • 5 of 5

We've driven past Baker City on I-84 but never stopped before. So glad we stopped this time and stayed at Dewayne's place. A complete 1br, 1 ba cottage with big deck, driveway parking and everything you could possible need for your stay. Lovingly and beautifully restored, there is a great kitchen, super-comfortable bed, washer/dryer in the large bathroom, cable tv and good wi-fi. Owners live next door if you need anything, but give you complete privacy.

You can walk or drive to Safeway, Coffee Corral (excellent, fresh roasted coffee,) and several restaurants. Our favorite place was Barley Brown's brewpub. We drove up to Anthony Lake in the Elkhorn Mountains and took a beautiful hike up to Hoffer Lake. We also did the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, a long loop drive to the Hells Canyon overlook, then on a paved but seasonal road through the Wallowa Mountains to Joseph then east to Enterprise and La Grande, before returning to Baker on I-84. We didn't have time to get to the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center - have to save that one for next time. We will definitely book Dewayne's Place for that trip, too.

Clean and Classy

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a two month stay @ DeWayne's place, and it was perfect. Debi has created a fine, well appointed rental on a very quiet lot, on a quiet street. Everything is top notch, new, and its furnished with all the amenities.
