This, one of a kind, rustic log home tucked into the base of the Elkhorn Mountains is anything but rustic when it comes to amenities. It is a large (5200 Sq. Ft.) home located on 250 acres bordered by Wallowa Whitman National Forest. There is scenery, hiking, snowshoeing, and wildlife right out the backdoor. You are with in minutes of The Elkhorn Trail and many Wilderness access options. Anthony Lakes ski area is 45 minutes away. It is a 12 mile trip into Historic Baker City. Seven bedrooms and four baths accommodate up to 14 people. Air mattresses or tent camping allows for more guests. It is a perfect spot for a group retreat or workshop. The main living areas are well suited to meetings or workshops in a relaxed, elegant setting. WiFi access lets everyone stay in touch with customers...

The main living areas are well suited to meetings or workshops in a relaxed, elegant setting. WiFi access lets everyone stay in touch with customers while enjoying a few days of team building. Behind the house there is a grassy, wooded area with a large fire pit, water access and picnic table. Make smores, tell stories or simply listen to the elk bugling across the meadow. The house has a large wrap around deck, including a furnished, covered area (we lounge over coffee and breakfast here in warm weather) near the kitchen/main entry. The house was built in 1979 with large diameter, hand hewn spruce logs. We recently completed a three year renovation project that provides top quality finish materials and modern amenities. The casual but elegant feel of the house is accentuated by hardwood floors, granite countertops, oriental carpets, chrystal chandeliers, antique furniture, leather couches original artwork and fine bedding. It has a gourmet kitchen (farm sink, professional, dual fuel range) capable of feeding a crowd. Two massive floor to ceiling stone fireplaces grace the main living areas, both upstairs and down. There are spectacular views out every window. There are two open loft bedrooms. One with two twin beds and one with a queen bed. There is a catwalk between bedrooms overlooking the living room. The main floor hosts a large entry way for depositing all of your outdoor gear, aforementioned kitchen with counter seating for 8-10, dining room with seating at the large table for up to 14 and a comfy conversation area of leather sofa and chairs, an additional sitting room with sofa, four comfy chairs and TV/DVD, small bath with toilet, shower and sink, large 'spa' bath with jetted tub and two sinks, small sun room perfect for a temporary bedroom or warming up on a winter day. Most of the main floor has high vaulted ceilings of knotty pine tongue and groove planks. Downstairs are five more bedrooms, two bathrooms and an expansive game room. The master bedroom has a queen bed, pull out queen couch and TV/DVD. The master bath has a toilet, shower and two sinks. The 'Pink' room has a queen bed, large closet and child's pop up, portable 'crib'. The 'Cedar' room has a queen bed and large closet. The 'Blue Room' has a double bed. The 'Yellow Room' has a double bed. The game room has a pool/ping pong table, foosball table, TV/DVD/Wii and access to high speed network. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 30-0948349More

About the neighbourhood
The Baker City area is quintessential western landscape. The valley is surrounded by the Elkhorn Mountains to the West and the Wallowa Mountains to the East. Good Bear Ranch sits at the base of the Elkhorns overlooking the valley and the Wallowa's Eagle Cap Wilderness. Backcountry hiking, biking, wildlife, hunting, fishing and snow skiing are all minutes away. We are about an hour and a half from Joseph, OR and the entrance to the incredible Hells Canyon National Recreation area. Baker City has all of the basic services one might require as well as art galleries, a museum, wine and beer tasting and lovely historical buildings to explore.
Getting around
Good Bear Ranch is nine miles West of Baker City. You will also need a car to access trailhead for hiking, hunting or fishing.
