Elmer mattila purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Elmer mattila chose Wallace
Elmer’s mother purchased this property in 2015 because of it’s close proximity to their home, just two houses away. The remodel effort was substantial and following the passing of Elmer’s mother it was decided to keep this historic property and turn it into a vacation rental so others can come and enjoy our unique town. In January 2017 this rental became Ona’s House rented through VRBO and is so named after Elmer’s mother.
What makes this Cottage unique
This charming cottage speaks to every one who stays there. The home is located in a beautiful quiet neighborhood that is in close walking distance to the historic downtown. Most of the photos and paintings in the home reflect the beauty and history of our community.

Our New Go To Place
Elmer was a fantastic host. Not only is his place clean, well stocked, convenient to downtown Wallace, but Elmer is an expert in what to do, where to do it, and how to get there in regard to the Wallace area. We will be returning to his homey place.
Thanks Kathy! It was great having you stay in our vacation rental and I really enjoyed visiting with the two of you. Our time ran too fast as I hoped for more time to talk and introduce Corki. Thanks for the fancy cheese that you left in the refrigerator, very tasty. I may have to buy some of that. Travel safe and thanks for the great review.
Ona’s Place Rocks!
Perfect place to call home for a weekend biking trip. The house was very clean and ready for us upon our arrival. Perfect location in Wallace close to museums and restaurants. Owner greeted us on arrival, gave us a quick overview of the house, and made himself available if needed (it wasn’t). Looking forward to staying here again on my next trip to the area.
Thanks for the terrific review of our vacation rental. We are happy that you enjoyed our easy access to Wallace and all it offers to people on holidays and vacations. We live in a great place
and are pleased to it share with others. Hope to see you again one day.

Wonderful little piece of history
Clean, neat as a pen. Very well done for an house that was built long ago. Neighborhood was quiet and very well kept. Neat little town.
Thanks for staying in Wallace and booking our vacation rental. We saw your suggestion for a small table in the back bedroom and will make sure that happens. Thanks again. Elmer & Corki
Great place to stay!
Ona's house was just perfect for our needs. We really enjoyed the area and the quiet neighborhood. Learning some of the history of this mining town was an enjoyable experience.
Thanks Marlin for visiting Wallace and staying in our vacation rental. It was great to meet you both and we are glad you enjoyed your time in our little community. Corki and I hope to see you again another day. Travel safe.
A real find!
This circa 1895 miner's house has been lovingly redone.
We liked staying here & enjoyed riding the Hiawatha bike trails & Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes.
We are pleased that you enjoyed our vacation rental here in Wallace. It is a great starting point for our wonderful North Idaho bike trails. Travel safe and hope to see you again another time.
