About Chelsa

My family has owned the Ranch property since the 1940s. From that time up until just a few years ago it is was a working cattle ranch. As a family we hope to continue the tradition of having family gathering and reunions at the property. During the times we are not using the property, as a family, we have decided to share it with others so they can experience not only a piece of our family's history, but get a sense of the true rural eastern Oregon life-ways.

Chelsa purchased this house in 1940

Why Chelsa chose Huntington

You can unplug, 'get off the grid', and experience a peacefulness that you might have forgotten that exists in this bustling and techy world that we now live in. You might have forgotten how many stars are in the sky. You might not know that the coyotes howl at 4 am or the birds wake you up every morning at 7 am. Did you know that the deer graze along the fields and mountain sides at dusk? See photos if you don't believe me.

What makes this house unique

Living in the city for so long, you might want to get back to a more peaceful time and that is why I say, take a step back in time and experience what life was like before our world got so loud and busy.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The ranch house was a great place to stay near Hell's canyon and the Wallowa's. It needs some updating, but it was clean and spacious. The neighbor is located on the property, but was very nice and respected our privacy. If your looking to stay close to the snake river as a big group or a small family, such as ours, the ranch house is a great option!

Feels like home. Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the opportunity to stay at Snake River Vacation house on several occasions over the past year. Peaceful setting. The house is spacious and well appointed working well for groups and the large deck is great for barbecues or just enjoying the day.

Excellent VRBO. The old Ranch House was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Old Ranch House In Huntington, OR. Not only was it centrally located for all of our group, it provided a good mix of amenities for the composition of our group with plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms, a large enough kitchen for our ambitious meal plans and a large space downstairs for some spirited table tennis matches. Information provided on the VRBO site and by the owner nicely matched what was available at the Ranch House. Kitchen implements were as promised and we took along the special implements we needed for our meals. Bedrooms, baths, living room, etc. were all as described and the house was well kept. The property is in a very pleasant valley setting with the Burnt River nearby, providing ample opportunities for walks in addition to access the to Snake River valley and its tributaries where we enjoyed three days of upland game bird hunting. The rustic setting combined with the general cleanliness of the property was a good match for our group and the three day bird hunt, the large front porch giving us ample room to remove boots and hunting clothes. We will likely return to this property in the future and we certainly recommend the property for anyone who wants to spend some quality time in the vicinity of Hells Canyon National Recreational Area or the general Snake River.

An Amazing house in a serene location!

  • 5 of 5

I had a business trip in the area and decided to stay outside of the city and glad I did. The house was *very spacious and immaculately kept ranch house. The caretakers are very nice if you happen to meet them and booking was quick & easy. This place is perfect for a couple or a family looking to find a fun place in nature. The near by town is quaint and the nearby restaurant has a tasty menu. We plan on vacationing here again sometime to explore more of the area!
