Quiet, Private, Enchanting, Rustic Cabin 20 minutes from the charming, historical town of Baker City, nestled in the foothills of the Elkhorn Mountains, 30 minutes from Anthony Lakes Ski Resort. Outgoing plumbing only (no running water). There is a creek off the back deck that runs most of the year. Pets are welcome but please notify host. Sleeps 4 (1 bed, 1 futon), pricing is for 2 guests. 4-wheel drive December-March.
No internet, TV service or Freezer.

The space
The Enchanting A-Frame is quiet, tranquil and private outside of 2 neighboring cabins, one that shares a driveway and the other is a full-year resident with dogs who keep to themselves. One little old french bulldog may come around for a visit.

This 900 square foot cabin is rustic, not all conveniences, but very comfortable, like camping (or glamping) but much better, safer, warmer, drier .... some cabin dust, a few bugs & an occasional mouse to be expected.

Being an A-Frame, the upstairs bedroom/loft is much warmer than downstairs, especially in the winter. There are fans on both levels to encourage circulation of heat from the propane ventless heater.

The bathroom is small and tight quarters especially for a larger person. The shower is also on the small side and is a camp shower ( with water heated from the stove). The spiral staircase is narrow and steep with a minimal handrail.

A stone fireplace provides additional comfort during the colder and wetter seasons.

Light breakfast foods, coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available for guests to enjoy. The kitchen is stocked with all basics, plates, glasses, utensils, pots and pans etc.

The forested canyon beyond has recently been purchased by a local helicopter logger who may or may not be logging depending on the season. During this time logging trucks may be travelling in and out of the canyon. At other times the owner may or may not allow hiking through the property up to the Pine Creek Reservoir.

Four wheel drive and traction tires are highly recommended in the winter months, generally December through March.

Guest access
Guests have use the entire cabin, though there are many drawers and cupboards which store host supplies and linens. The neighboring storage shed is for host use only.

Other things to note
Just to reiterate, the plumbing inside the cabin is outgoing only. Water must be brought into the cabin from the creek or it will be provided in buckets and large water jugs (if the creek is not running, which it occasionally does not due to retainage for forest fires or use in agriculture in the fall). Hot water is obtained by Heating water on the propane range in the kitchen.

Propane is the main source of heat and provides fuel for the cook stove. The use of propane can emit a slight odor at times. The cabin is checked regularly for propane leaks.

Location

Baker City, Oregon, United States

The cabin is tucked away off of a gravel road (possible logging trucks may be emerging from the forested canyon). It is located at the tree line of the Elkhorn Mountains, therefore, is surrounded by tall evergreens. The homes below the cabin sit on 5 plus acres of rural living. Deer and wild turkeys frequently visit our yards and fields.

My husband and I love Eastern Oregon and all that this beautiful area has to offer. The Mountains, the wildlife and the lifestyle available to us. We enjoy the many benefits of living in a small agricultural community. I (Betty) lived in the Enchanting A-Frame for 7 years after taking a year and a half break leaving my fast paced and over committed world of work behind in order to relax, regroup and to travel to several countries and explore many more local areas. The water situation was challenging, but I became quite comfortable with it. I love the serenity and charm of the cabin (which was transformed by a local contractor, Tom, who later became my husband). After getting married and building our home, the cabin was no longer being utilized except on occasion. We were encouraged by many to open it up to guests, sharing this special, unusual getaway.
