About Kathy Siebe

We have made Wallowa County our home for the last 35 years, and plan to spend the next 35 year here as well! Always on the go, we enjoy hiking, golfing, and being tourists in our own town.

Kathy Siebe purchased this house in 2014

Why Kathy Siebe chose Oregon

We bought this property because it was sad and rundown and we wanted to make it beautiful again. We have completely renovated it and are very happy with the results. We hope visitors will enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

We wanted to make this a vacation rental property because the location is perfect. It is close to the north end of Wallowa Lake where the locals swim and play and also central to the downtown Joseph. It is great fun sitting on the front porch and watching the people (and deer!) go by. The backyard is large and would be great for a volleyball game and the patio is perfect for barbecuing.

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to be close to outdoor activities, but be close to the town of Joseph. This was the most perfect location. It was so wonderful to come 'home' to a comfortable property, after long days of exploration.

A quiet & cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Wild Iris was absolutely perfect! The owners really go the extra mile with goodies from local shops waiting to greet you. Check in & out is really easy. The house was super clean, beautifully decorated, and extremely cozy & comfortable. I am a very light sleeper, and was over-joyed at how quiet it was (I didn't hear neighbors nor any street noise at night or when I was sleeping in on the weekend mornings). There are gorgeous views of mountains from the back yard. The owner is very accommodating and responded to me quickly when I was booking and again while we were there and I had a question. Even the pull-thru driveway was perfect for us, since we were pulling a snowmobile trailer. We truely did not want to leave this special home! Thank you for sharing it with us! When we come back to Joseph, we definately want to stay here again!

The Wild Iris House was a clean, quiet location, complete with everything you need to relax and enjoy the town of Joseph. It is walking close to the shops and/or the beautiful Wallowa Lake. Helpful & thoughtful, the owners made sure we had a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this retreat and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Warm and welcoming home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay over the Thanksgiving holiday. The home is warm and inviting with every kitchen item I could've asked for. The owners were very thoughtful to leave local products for us to try. This home is in a perfect location for Joseph, quiet yet on the main road within walking distance to the restaurants and shops. We come to Wallowa county frequently to visit family and normally stay in one of the local motels, but I would be thrilled to stay here instead on a future visit. The house was very family friendly for our young daughter as well.
