Overview

About the property

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 wade or 'swim' in a deep spot. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not datedThe clans of McL…, McN…& W… gathered for a feast & friendship. As Spring is upon us we enjoyed music, wine & the laughter of nine children & 8 adults. Skiing was good, hiking was great and plans were made to repeat the experience. Thanks to our hosts for everything.

The City of Haines, population 420, is 8-miles away, with Baker City, population 9,800, 20-miles away providing the comforts of small town needs. Baker Valley, an agricultural center of industry, was a thriving gold mining center in its history with numerous ghost towns to explore. The Oregon Trail passed through the valley below the Ranch where the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is about 25-miles away. Deer, elk, coyote, turkey, bear and other wild animals live on the Ranch and can be seen from the comforts of the house or outside on the decks. 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.

Inadequate water in the house for half our stay! Unresponsive owner.

  • 1 of 5

My family gathered together to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday from June 2-5 of 2017. I would love to give this house a 5-star rating because the house itself and the setting was wonderful. There was major problem with the water pressure - as in not enough pressure to shower or run the dishwasher. The local manager & my husband devoted a couple of days to getting the problem solved (a local well repair guy finally fixed the pump ); in the meantime we waited around the house most of the day Sat. and Sun. for the repairs to be made - forgoing the excursions we had planned...

I notified the owner Ms Hulegaard of our disappointment and suggested a refund of one or possibly two nights stay, since 8 of us were unable to shower Fri./Sat./Sun.

She promised to respond within the week after - she traveled to OR to meet with her local manager.....that was four months ago and not a word.

I hate to leave a bad review but feel that it's only fair at this point. Perhaps Ms Hulegaard will be more fair to her future guests if they should have a problem with their stay.

Beautiful location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we took our FFA officers on a retreat to this location. Sheralyn is awesome to work with and is truly supportive of what we do with the officers. There are always plenty of beds and air mattresses are available if need be. The deck is well maintained and the perfect spot to hang out and chat or read a book. Just a beautiful and relaxing location!

Several family members stayed here for 3 nights. We were here to attend the wedding of our nephew. The home was very comfortable. We all enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck. Great views.

Awsome

  • 5 of 5

A great getaway hideout. We had an old friends reunion during the weekend of the Broncs and Bulls event. This place is filled with beautiful scenery and had all the accommodations we would ever need. Every one had a fantastic time and we plan to make it an annual event. Thank you for sharing this home.
