The John Day Valley Chalet, as we like to call it, is located right above the town of John Day, Oregon and just below the airport. It has a great view of the entire eastern valley and of Big Canyon Mountain to the south. It is a perfect vacation home for families or an ideal location as a corporate lodging facility for those coming for a few days on business in the valley.
The Chalet is very private, sitting on 3 acres, out of sight of the few other homes in the area. It is completely furnished with a complete modern kitchen and all the amenities of a nice country retreat, though you won't be roughing it. It sleeps 6 in three spacious bedrooms with pillow top queen beds and a couple of single floor mattresses for the kids or extra vacationers. There are two full bathrooms, one with double sink and double shower and large walk-in closet.
There is dish TV with HBO and player with numerous videos, CD player, internet and local telephone as well as laundry room.
Outside we have a 15 x 22 ft. deck with Patio set and Bar and Babeque. Its steps go down to a large yard overlooking the valley complete with Gazebo, Fire pit, Horse shoe pit and just outdoor lounging.
The driveway is large enough for large RV's to turn around in or park next to the home itself.
There is also a nice 6 x 10 ft. wire kennel with dog house for outside use and a dog house in the garage for inside use on cold days.
Like I said, the home is totally furnished and equipped. Just bring your suitcase and your groceries.
It is beautiful, quiet and clean and we leave the keys in our car in this country.
The John Day Valley is located in Eastern Oregon, approximately 125 miles east of Bend, Ore & 190 miles east of Boise, Idaho & 100 miles south of Pendelton, Ore. & 75 miles North of Burns, Ore. The two highways to John Day are Hwy 26, east/west and Hwy 395 north/south.
The John Day Airport is located 2 miles from town on the plateau above the town.
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.
It is in the Strawberry Mt. wilderness country and quite spectacular and accessible to several wilderness areas and mountain hiking and hunting. The John Day river system, the last undamned system in the US, provides great fishing and swimming.
It is in easy driving distance from most all the sites in the basin including the main, south, north and middle forks of the John Day River, Magone Lake, Murderers Creek, Bear Valley, and the Strawberry and Aldrich Mts. and Blue Mts. look out towers, Kimberley Orchards for picking, fishing, swimming and picnicking, the John Day fossil beds and museum, several swimming holes and hunting, hiking, cycling and winter events.
We came over Dixie Pass, from the east, and bought property that day in 1972, we were so taken with it, and we still are.
Like I said, drive in or fly in and enjoy some very special country and good people.
