The home is centered on a 320-acre cattle ranch in the foothills of the Elkhorn Ridge of the Blue Mountains. The house is at 4,200 ft elevation and the ridge rises to 9,000 ft. Two small streams flow through the property where you can fish or pan for gold. Hiking, riding, snowmobiling, mountain biking, sledding, hunting and cross country skiing are as close as the front door while Baker and Union counties offer countless more opportunities. Anthony Lakes ski area is famous for powder snow and is only is 19 miles away. Water skiing and sail boarding are nearby.

Haines, population 350, is 8-miles distant and Baker City, population 10,000, is 20-miles. Baker Valley is now devoted to agriculture and was a thriving gold mining center with numerous ghost towns to explore. The Oregon Trail passed through the valley below the ranch and the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is about 20-miles away. Deer, elk, coyote, turkey, bear and other wild animals live on the ranch and can be seen from the house. The ranch includes both forest and open fields. During the summer cattle graze just outside of the yard. This home was designed and built for vacations and was completed in January 2003. We have tried to include everything to make your stay comfortable. The nearest neighbor is 1/2 mile away so privacy and quiet is assured.
