This is a relatively untouched country in many ways.

There are many back roads and 'circle' drives around the entire county and close enough to other great sites for reasonable day trips or over nights, such as the Steens Mountain/Alvord desert country.

Like I said, drive in or fly in and enjoy some very special country and good people.

This house was purchased from a family member and some remoldeling has taken place on the inside to make it more appealing and usable. Living in the area for over 50 years has been rewarding in meeting new people and making it easy to stay in touch with ole friends.

This property has been in the family for many years and we want to keep it that way.. We have everything here except for the ocean, and being able to see the beautiful mountains around us everyday is such a treat. It's wonderful how the community comes together and stands together on different issues. I just like to call it home.

This home has character, it's style is fun and it has so much room inside. To be able to have a place that is safe and relaxing for folks to visit and feel like their at home is and has been our goal. When guests tell you they want to stay and not go is very rewarding, knowing that they love it here as much as we do. The yard is amazing with this house, it has a built in firplace which has been here for over 50 years and it's usable, you can cook on it and relax in the yard, watch the deer as they come to feed off the apple trees,sit back and see the mountain peeks around you, in the evening look up and count the stars, there is so much to enjoy here!!

Great place to stay for me and my family. Having a place other then a motel for the Grandkids to play and feel at home. A wonderful place to stay if you are planning on being in John Day for several days and need a place to cook, relax, and allow the kiddos to run around.
Owner's Response: Thank you!! We look forward to you and your family staying with us again :)

Pefect!

I stayed a couple of nights in the studio, a converted shed just to the right of the main house. It was perfect!

The good:

* Central location

* Everything appeared to be brand new inside, except for a cool vintage wall fan left alone during the complete remodel (good taste!)

* Good privacy (separate from main house, has it's own entrance)

* Full kitchen! Sink, full stove/oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, pots and dishes, too!

* A good stereo clock radio. Also a flat-screen TV (didn't try it)

* Big leather easy chair!

* Closet with hangers and dresser

* Parking right outside

* Handicap accessible? Wide doorways, ground floor, etc.

* Separate heaters in main room and bathroom - very efficient

The bad

* Newfangled shower handle confused my friend, who wound up taking a cold shower! She doesn't get out much, though -- most people would probably know to turn it slightly back from far left to get the hot water flowing.

The GREAT!!!

* In a rush to leave, I left behind a pair of shorts. A couple days later, I received them in the mail, priority mail, washed. Wow, thanks, Shelley! That's great hospitality over and above and beyond!

* Shelley and Dale are great hosts! Thanks, you both -- I loved my stay in John Day, and having such a nice place was a big part of that.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! The studio actually is a part of the house that we separated for accommodations. We hope you visit us again soon!!!
