HELLO! We are owners Kelly Esterbrook and Jimmi Terhaar. We love BAKER CITY and coming over to ski, hike, ride our bikes and most of all working on The Palmer House! We found it, fell in love with it and felt it deserved the respect of its graceful, prominent lore in Baker history! So we have endeavored to bring it new color and creative life working on it when we can s l o w down (what we love about Baker!) and get there from our hometown of Bend, OR. We hope you enjoy the Palmer House as we endeavor....to restore...create..and color...it with NEW LIFE!
We really got excited about Baker City, coming from Bend and having been long time residents of Bend; Baker was like the 'OLD BEND' only with more history in its buildings. Downtown is so very cool...big stone buildings..old Victorian houses.. We came to ski Anthony Lakes and loved the small community of skiing there. The Nordic while small is world class! Snow is light and fluffy! We feel a slower pace the minute we hit town!
We love the detail of 'this OLD HOUSE! The higher ceilings, the antique moldings and stained glass.. the roominess of it all! It has 2 living rooms with a beautiful old fireplace ( now with safe electric fire ambience)! I especially love the Sun Room.... relaxing...
