About Laurie

We have lived in Eastern Oregon most our lives and in Baker City the past 25 years. We are experienced in most the outdoor amenities the area offers, so are willing to share the best spots to enjoy God's Country, Baker County!

Laurie purchased this house in 2014

Why Laurie chose Eastern Oregon

The Keeper of the Valley is named after the old Legend of the shadow seen on the Elkhorn Mountains during Winter of an Indian brave. This kept the Natives away from the Elkhorn Mountains. On sunny days in winter, the brave is easily seen as a casting shadow from a ridge.

What makes this house unique

Outstanding country views, unlimited recreation, close to town

Completely enjoyed everything about our stay. Was great to be able to cook our own meals and have a full sized place to unwind in . Will stay here from now on when we visit Baker City for business and fun.

The house worked perfect for our stay in Baker

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice and worked perfect for our stay in Baker. Plenty of room for a large family or event. Communication with the owners of the property was great and I would recommend the home to anyone looking to stay in the Baker Valley.

This house was perfect for our family when we went to a wedding for my cousin. The bedooms are huge and beds are comfortable. The kitchen is a little small, but everything you need is there. The grounds are beautiful, and there is a fire pit.

Great Place with a Great View

  • 5 of 5

We are from the East coast and booked The Keeper of the Valley as the location for a small family reunion. The place was all we expected and more. The view from the dining room window was fantastic with the farm house, barn and silo with the mountains for a back drop. All of our group had plenty of space to move about doing things together or individually. The evenings were cool while we were there; therefore, we took advantage of the fire pit to built a bonfire. We cannot think of any drawbacks about staying and will probably do it again should the opportunity arise. Close enough to town for supplies and there are plenty of things to do in the area. Great place for a family to get some fine country air. The photos on the internet describe the place to a T.

Located minutes outside of Baker City. Comfortable, clean, spacious. Great as a vacation base to explore the area, Blue Mountains, Anthony Lakes, etc. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We have been getting a lot of requests for large group gatherings where only 10-12 actually stay, but more come for events like Weddings, family reunions, baby showers, holiday gatherings, etc.... The home is not set up for large groups and we do not allow more guests than are staying at the lodge. We live next door so are very aware of the amount of guests. Please be a courteous guest and follow our house rules. Thank you!
