About Jim and Sandy Bay

We came over Dixie Pass, from the east, and bought property that day in 1972, we were so taken with the valley and entire region, and we still are. We own several properties now and are totally here and committed. We also run the John Day Valley Farmers Market every summer and have a Meditation, Yoga and Well Being center called

Canyon Mountain Center.

Jim and Sandy Bay purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Jim and Sandy Bay chose John Day

We wanted to provide a vacation rental in town for those who come to the many fairs and events or just want a good central location that is simple to get to and has everything to relax with.

What makes this bungalow unique

This Bungalow is right in town and not a big place but totally together and simple. It is a far cry from a motel with a microwave and 150 sq. ft. and reasonably priced for a few people to enjoy together for short visits and events in town. It is air conditioned for summer or winter. Its' recreation room is 16 x 17 ft. and includes the 3rd bed, a queen hide-a-bed with extra padding for comfort. The room has a game table area and games as well as the extra closet as a 3rd room. It is located separately from the main home across the patio from its back door. the patio has a bar-bq and privacy or adjoining gates to our other two places there, for bigger groups. It is across from the county fair grounds and a 5 minute walk from down town.

Great Value in Eastern Oregon

  • 5 of 5

Cute and cozy three bedroom, walking distance to pretty much all of John Day and the Fairgrounds. Very well stocked kitchen - all the pots, pans, plates, wine glasses, etc. you need. Comfortable beds, plenty of towels... what more do you want?

PRO TIP: 3rd bedroom is actually across the enclosed patio in back and is it's own separate space.
