After an outstanding camping trip in the Wallowa mountains of eastern Oregon, we threw a dart at the map and landed in Joseph, Oregon -- a wonderfull small western town that's yet to be really discovered as a destination. After a couple of nights at another (less wonderful) establishment, we were talking with some locals who recommended the Bronze Antler. Since there was a room available, we grabbed it.
Heather and Bill are wonderful hosts and among the most well-informed travel coaches we found. The rooms are warm, inviting and very comforatable (we agree with the comments of others about this) but all of our hosts' recommendations about what else to do, where to eat (and not) as well as some of the interesting history of the area was great information.
Breakfast was great, and I'm sure we'll be back sometime.
If you're within a couple of hundred miles of this place, go for it!

Three graciously appointed guestrooms and one over-the-top suite each with en suite bath and many amenities. Perennial gardens with regulation surface bocce court.
