The John Day Fossil Beds National Monument:: John Day Fossil Beds National Monument protects one of the longest and most continuous records of evolutionary change and biotic relationships in North America. Here, scientists have unearthed countless fossils of land plants and animals dating back 6 to 54 million years as well as evidence of the dramatic climatic changes that have occurred. The monument includes over 14,000 acres found in 3 widely separated units, the Sheep Rock Unit, Painted Hills Unit and Clarno Unit. The Painted Hills are located 9 miles from Mitchell. Sheep Rock is about 38 miles and houses the monument's visitor center as well as the Thomas Condon Paleontology museum with its large collection of ancient fossils. The Clarno unit is close to Fossil, about an hour drive from Mitchell. All drives are magnificent scenic byways capturing the landscape's diversity and beauty. Its possible to dig your own fossils in the Wheeler High School Fossil Beds.

Ochoco Mountains:: About 20 miles from Mitchell are the Ochoco mountains with Evergreen forests and various snow parks offering great opportunities for cross- country skiing, sledding and snowmobiling. The Ochoco Nordic Club in Prineville offers classes and cross country skiing trips there throughout the winter. In early summer this region is great for morel mushroom hunting, and hiking.If you like to hunt for precious stones, you can visit the Lucky Strike Mine in the depth of the forest to dig for beautiful thunder eggs at $1/lb. This is great fun for kids of all ages.

The John Day River:: The John Day is spectacular river with incredible scenery and unspoiled beauty. With its 280 miles of length it is the longest un-dammed river in the Pacific Northwest and is federally protected as a Wild and Scenic River. The basalt formations and bluffs are typical of this region and some of the cliffs and palisades along the shores tower more than 3,000 feet high above the river.The John Day is a favorite for bird watching as it is in the heart of the Pacific Flyway. Look out for Canadian geese, hawks and humming birds. There is great winter Steelhead and bass fishing, with the drifting time beginning in spring running through June. From Mitchell there are various different routes to get to the river and we will be happy to show you our favorite spots for swimming,and hiking. The river is particular magnificent in spring as it is swollen with melting water. Rafting season begins in May and ends in August when it becomes too low.Swimming is best in July and August.

My mother Barb and I started this business in 2008 and have enjoyed it ever since. We're originally from Germany and lived for a long time in Seattle were my family ran a European restaurant in the famous Pike Place Market for 10 years. After we sold the restaurant in 2000, I went on to study herbal medicine at Bastyr University in Seattle. Here in Eastern Oregon I enjoy gardening and growing herbs, hiking,landscape photography and taking care of our guests.

Aruna and Barb Jacobi purchased this cottage in 1997

My parents travelled quite a bit in the States and fell in love with Eastern Oregon. Both are artists and appreciated the amazing landscapes in this area with the breathtaking views around each corner. The Painted Hills especially caught their eye and so they decided to buy the properties in MItchell just 9 miles away from the national monument. A few years later, we bought the property out on Burnt Ranch Rd. about 7 miles beyond the Painted Hills. Because we couldn't part with the cottage and the little guesthouse, we decided to create the Painted Hills Vacation Rentals so we could share the beauty of this area with many more travelers to this area. We have never regretted it and have made many new friends with our guests, many of them coming since years now.

Incredible nature in all directions, close to the Painted Hills, close to the other 2 units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument Clarno and Sheep Rock,

biking, hiking, wildlife watching, rafting, wilderness experiencing, swimming in the John Day river, exceptional landscape photography, retreat to heal and rejuvenate, stargazing, meteor showers, Country life, country-festivals, rodeos, Thomas Condon Paleontology museum, fossil hinting, close to Ochoco National Forest,

COME and Discover the wild Beauty of Eastern Oregon for yourself!!

Nice relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting.

We spent the last weekend of October in the Hollyhock Cottage. What a relaxing place to come back to after exploring all the beautiful country within an hours drive of the house. The Painted Hills are literally 10 minutes away. The grounds of the house are private and well maintained and the barn/game room is a perfect place to spend an evening in front of the fire. The farm fresh eggs are a nice touch and Barbara even left us a bottle of wine for my wife's birthday. We will definitely return!

What an amazing eastern Oregon gem!!

I visited the Painted Hills in the middle of October, 2013, which is the perfect time to plan an eastern Oregon get away! The Hollyhock vacation rental was the perfect place for me as I was traveling by myself. The garden and the house were beyond perfect. All the amenities that I needed were there plus much more. I am a musician and was using my time there to work on some songs for an upcoming recording. I spent the mornings and evenings at the house working on music and the afternoons out exploring the amazing area. It was quiet, peaceful, and I left having a great sense of accomplishment and was also re-charged for life in the default world. I cant wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Ragon for sharing your experience of visiting Eastern Oregon and your joy about staying at the Hollyhock Guest House. It;s true, October is one of the best times to come out here especially for a longer time in order to really appreciate the uniqueness of the region.
We wish you great success with your recording and are looking forward to see you again.
Warmest regards,
Aruna and Barb

Beautiful hidden gem in the painted hills!

My husband and I stayed at the Hollyhock guest house for our 2 year anniversary and were blown away by this hidden gem! We drove through the tiny town of Mitchell not quite knowing what to expect and drove up to a house hidden behind an artistically painted gate. Entering the gate we were surrounded by lush plant life and felt a sense of calm and peace. We loved the charm of the house, with the gorgeous paintings of the surrounding landscapes, and had all the amenities that helped us to feel both at home and on vacation. We cooked all of our meals and had all of the necessary utensils and cookware to make cooking easy. The grounds are beautiful, with a variety of plant life, beautiful hollyhocks, fruit trees, herb and veggie gardens, and little nooks and crannies that call to you to sit and relax. There is even a game room that is super cozy and a great place for kids and adults to play, create, read, and snuggle. The house is nicely situated allowing for adventures into the surrounding geological wonders without feeling like you have to travel too far away from home. The owners where fantastic and ensured that we had everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable one. I would highly recommend this gem to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful place to stay while traveling through Central Oregon.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Crystal and Ian, for your enthusiasm :-). It's just wonderful that you noticed all the many details and creativity we've been putting into the cottages and gardens. It's still an ongoing process of getting it better and better every year. We listen to ideas from our guests, what works for them and what we need to improve and so we keep adding, and changing and moving things around. The game room has more and more developed into a room for the kids and they really love it. The kitchen has been receiving lots of compliments and most guests love it's old country charm. We're so pleased that you loved cooking here, hanging out in the garden and just relaxing after your adventures in this incredible region.
We hope to welcome you back soon!

Terrific home away from home w/peaceful garden

The Hollyhock Guest House was an amazing little home away from home in the desert. Everything in the home is comfortable and tastefully arranged and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking your own meals. The best part of this place is the garden oasis. It's green and beautiful with lots of outdoor seating for reading or bird watching or just listening to the sounds of the trees rustling above you. I simply loved it there. It's a great place to come back to after a day of exploring the beautiful desert area.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your generous words. We're so glad that you enjoyed it so much and that the garden was such a treat to you. Mom and I love this garden too and keep planting and landscaping all year long. It keeps always changing from season to season, from year to year..How wonderful that we can share our own joy with our guests. I hope you tried the Italian prunes that were just ready to eat during your stay! Delicious!
We see you again, Marita, I'm sure.

Perfection

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Barb and Aruna's charming slice of heaven in Mitchell. This was our second trip and it was as wonderful and special as we remembered. The house is fully equipped with everything you might need, a gorgeous garden surrounds you and the Painted Hills are only miles away. What more could you ask for? Oh, maybe farm fresh eggs in the refrigerator. We
had breakfast for dinner the first night and slept deeply on an incredibly comfortable bed. Many thanks for sharing the spectacular area of Oregon that you live in. We'll be back!
