This should be called "Awesome House"!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third VRBO and it was by far our favorite! The house has been remodeled, but kept in it's period style. It was charming, the beds were comfy and the amenities were just what we needed. We enjoyed sitting outside too! Next time we are BBQ'ing in the pig!! Veronica did a really good job decorating and has a really great location. We were able to walk into town and parking was perfect for the Hell's Canyon Motorcycle Rally we were there for. We look forward to returning soon!

Mahalo Veronica!

Really a great spot to base a weekend getaway of exp.oring Baker County.

  • 5 of 5

Wisdom house was perfect for our group of three couples. Beds were cozy, house well stocked. We did the Friday Art walk, hiked at Anthony Lakes, poked around in Sumpter, and attended a rodeo in Haines.

Veronica was easy to reach with the couple of questions we had. We boarded our dog at 'Donna's Groom and Board which was really close, so that worked out well.

We would definitely recommend Wisdom house to those looking for a Baker City getaway.

Wonderful Place to Stay for couples or families in the heart of downtown Baker City!

Exquisite Vacation Rental. Veronica goes all out in terms of insuring you are comfortable and have everything you need. Centrally located to walk to shops and restaurants. We went skiing at Anthony Lakes and Veronica provided us with a 1/2 off coupon (she does go all out like I said!)

The home is very comfortable, with its 1879 charm in full display. Clean, comfortable beds, all the utensils to cook or bake. I love the house!

Why Wisdom House chose Baker City

The Wisdom House was designed and built in 1878 by John William Wisdom and is currently the oldest home in Baker City, This Historic home still displays its original draperies in the living room and dining room. Mr. Wisdom was an Oregon State Senator and operated the first pharmacy in Baker City. This is a wonderful home so full of history still bearing the worn down steps leading into the home. The story goes that the stone steps are worn down due to the many guest the Wisdom's had in their home. I just love this home!!!

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is decorated with Craftsmen artwork and handcrafted furniture which are available for purchase by local Artisans.
