We spent five awesome nights here in late August with our two dogs. The cottage was perfect for us, and the fenced yard with grass was perfect for the dogs! There was a dozen fresh eggs in the fridge, along with cherry tomatoes from Aruna's garden, which was a special treat. The cottage was charming and welcoming, and very comfortable for just hanging out. We spent a lot of time sitting in the Adirondack chairs in the garden, and ended up eating in more often than we had anticipated, given the fresh food and the fact the was kitchen was so well stocked, as well as the incredible peace and beauty of the garden. We also visited all three units of the John Day Fossil Beds, and drove to the various "ghost towns" in the area. The scenery in the area is beautiful. I have rented a lot of vacation houses with my family over the years, and all of the minor annoyances I've experienced in the past with other rentals had already been addressed by the owners of this rental (i.e., everything you need to cook/eat in; LOTS of places to hang towels or robes in the bathroom; an abundance of plush towels, etc.) We have been telling everyone we know about this wonderful place, and will definitely be returning in the near future.
