Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)

We invite you to enjoy our secluded, peaceful, custom house in scenic Northeastern Oregon. The handcrafted house is conveniently located in the foothills of the Wallowa Mountains, the Western gateway to the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Hiking, fishing, skiing, and mountaineering opportunities abound. Wildlife roams in profusion.The Wallowas and the Elkhorn Crest provide excellent backcountry skiing opportunities. For a more civilized skiing experience the Anthony Lakes ski area is only about 50 minutes away and provides maintained Nordic trails and alpine skiing. The town of Union is six miles away, with its collection of Victorian homes, the Hot Lake Hot Springs and a most charming Victorian cemetery. La Grande and Baker City are also nearby. On the other side of the Wallowas, Hells Canyon and the Joseph/Enterprise area provide additional recreational opportunities.

SKIERS! Please ask about half price lift ticket vouchers for the Anthony Lakes ski area. We will offer up to one for each guest for each day you stay. This offer begins Thanksgiving Day, and is valid until Anthony Lakes closes for the season, or we run out of vouchers.

The area affords ORV opportunities. If you wish to bring your vehicles, please do not ride them on the property.

The house itself is like no other. The home has been remodeled with custom detail. The gleaming wood floors have inlaid patterns, the cathedral ceilings are open beam, and the kitchen is open to the house for easy interactions with family and friends. The bedrooms boast window seats which may urge you to indulge in a good read. On a cool evening relax by the gas fireplace, or stoke up the woodstove. In another mood, enjoy the hot tub on the porch while you gaze across the valley. The house sits on its own 48 acres, so you will have to look sharply to see another house! Deer, elk and other wildlife are plentiful and roam the hillside and meadow.

Kids are welcome at the house, but if you have very small children we may want to talk. The house is not in any way child-proofed. It has a shower, but no tub for splashing little ones in, and the stairs to the loft are not for playing on. We want you to enjoy your stay, so please keep this in mind. No pets are allowed.

Beautiful Spot, Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Visiting the area for a graduation and we so enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. It is off the beaten path, very private and in a beautiful setting. The home is beautiful and was very comfortable. Hope to return for another visit. Connie, I have a beautiful rainbow photograph and a momma deer and her newborn fawn if you're interested, I'd love to share them with you.

Enjoyed our time at the house

  • 5 of 5

The house is laid out well for relaxing. Plenty of room. All the comforts of home are there with a well stocked and large kitchen and eating area. Storage is everywhere. Fireplace room is perfect for sharing the days events and planning for the next. Covered parking was welcome as it snowed most days. Deer everywhere. Scenery from the house is pleasing and promotes relaxation. Owners are accommodating. We would rent again if circumstances allow. Dr. K

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The house sits on the side of a foothill of the Wallowa Mountains with Catherine Creek running at the bottom. Union is a quaint town about 6 miles away. There are no visible structures from this house -- you are both remote and not too far from civilization if you forgot something. The house does not have Wi-Fi, but the LTE coverage through Verizon is available, very good, and consistent on the property. The interior is mostly in fine wood. The owners have taken great care to build a functional and comfortable home. I was there with my family of 6 and there was plenty of room. This is a wonderful place to get away from things and relax. I wanted peace and quite and that's what I got. We sat by the fire, watched movies, played games, watched the deer and hiked the Catherine Creek State Park. The kitchen was well suited for preparation of our Thanksgiving day feast. The price is very reasonable for the fine quality of home, open space and fresh air. Thanks for sharing this home with us.
