Thank you for visiting! We are family-operated bed and breakfast set in the historic lumber mill office building of the Edward Hines Lumber Company. We currently offer four unique guest rooms and event and meeting spaces. We're ideal for family and work groups (you can rent the whole home), recreational adventurers, business and work travelers, and those looking for a comfortable one-night respite. Throughout the inn, you'll find museum quality relics from days gone by. You'll take a step back in time when you stay with us, and we hope you'll enjoy our slice of eastern Oregon as much as we do!

In addition to the inn, we can accommodate various events - conferences, birthdays, weddings, receptions, paint nights, classes, dances, markets, and workshops. Please feel free to contact us to see if our services can meet your needs. We also operate as a Harvest Hosts site. For updates on our adventure, please find us on Instagram and Facebook!

We look forward to meeting you!

Guest Reviews

"A really unique experience that takes you back in time more than just the walls and the history. Shani and Roger the owner operators really take service to the next level. The breakfast is all home made and better than anything in the town restaurant wise. My girlfriend and I have dietary restrictions and they made two amazing breakfasts. Getting a real home made meal with your stay is something from a bygone era. I’ve never stayed at a cleaner more put together establishment in the area. Combining everything hospitality, comfort, service, experience, cleanliness and brunch I would give the place 6 stars but the review only allows for 5. We will be back as I visit the area yearly."
