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 provide lodging and events to visitors and our community; we currently offer four unique guest rooms and event and meeting spaces. 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!
We acquired the property in June 2022 after the Watson family restored this beautiful piece of history to its former glory of the 30s, 40s, and 50s. The building was originally the office headquarters for the Edward Hines Lumber Company, the very foundation of Hines itself. The Watsons sought to preserve the site and share it with the community and visitors, and we are continuing the vision.
Shani brings over three decades of hospitality experience to the venture, having worked in resorts and restaurants in her home state of Montana, and more recently, in Oregon's wine country managing tasting rooms, wine clubs, events, and vacation rental properties. Roger, a Milwaukie, OR native, continues his decades-long career in financial services and has always been socially and community-minded, with involvement in business networking organizations, alumni associations, Rotary, and the Shriners (to name a few). Ollie is currently 10 and enjoys space, volcanoes, reading, and drawing.
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 fun new updates on our adventure, please find us on Instagram and Facebook!
We look forward to meeting you!

Great place to stay. Quiet and clean, the rooms are full of old fashioned charm. The building sits on a nice couple of acres, and the owners have made good use of the land including a fire pit, grill, and picnic table to relax around. We visited in spring, and the trees and flowers are starting to bloom- gorgeous!
Inside there is a cute little gift shop, and a recreation room with a TV, pool table, and board games, which was great for keeping the kids entertained. The owners are really nice and full of knowledge about the area, so we certainly felt that sense of welcome and charm that only a B&B can provide. And breakfast - don't even get me started. DELICIOUS every morning.
Many of the industrial properties around the building continue to operate, but I never heard noise from them - its kind of incredible to see though, because the whole area used to be one large tree mill, so seeing the history is a unique experience.
We'll definitely be staying again
