“Great location at south end of Hell's Canyon”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Located a stone’s throw from the Snake River, this attractive B&B provides an excellent vantage point for excursions into picturesque Hell’s Canyon. It’s located on a good hard-surfaced graveled road about a quarter mile north of Hwy 86 on the Oregon side of the river. Though greeted warmly upon our arrival by the man of the house, we were pretty much left on our own to find our way and settle into one of two spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed rooms below the home’s large upper deck. He did spend a little time with us upon arrival describing the local attractions and the limited dining options around this fairly remote part of eastern Oregon. There was a flat screen TV on a wall swivel with cable access but no Wi-Fi. At an appointed time the following morning, the lady of the house brought down to our room a sparse breakfast consisting of three pancakes each and a pitcher of OJ, not exactly an appetizing wholesome breakfast and not quite what we would expect at such a lovely B&B. Without further ado or fanfare, we packed up and saw our own way out to our car, and continued up the picturesque canyon on the Idaho side of the river.
From Oxbow, the beautiful 26-mile drive north to the dam provides many opportunities for hiking, picnics, fishing, and boating. Jet boat tours into the rugged canyon on the wild river are available from the launching area just north of the dam. The drive on Hwy 86 to Oxbow from Baker City is very picturesque meandering through farms and hills, and follows two cascading streams, Powder River and Pine Creek, for much of the way. The small town of Halfway provides some limited dining, market, and shopping opportunities, and just about the only gas station in the immediate area. The Oregon Trail Interpretive Center near Baker City is a must-see first-class attraction in an impressive setting on a hill overlooking segments of the original pioneers’ route to the West. Cell phone coverage along the way and especially near Oxbow is spotty or nonexistent.

It is a perfect B&B, thank god because there are not a lot of other options around. But nice owners, room is a bit simple but very spacious, nice garden to from there it's a 45 min ride to the Oxbow dam. Boat ride is very recommended.

After visiting the Hells Canyon Dam and hiking the Canyon on a very hot July day, we saw the Hells Canyon Bed and Breakfast across the road from the Snake River. They have two rooms, and one was available!

Our room was very clean and well maintained. The room is large with sofa, table, and chairs. Accommodates 4 easily. The bed gave me a good nights sleep and the AC worked well. An excellent LCD TV with satellite and swivel on the wall so you can watch TV from anywhere. There was a roomy shower (no tub), a small fridge, and a roomy sink in a separate room from the shower. The bathroom had a separate entrance, this could be useful if you're caught in rain and mud. The rooms are located under the front deck and have totally separate entrances from the house, which was definitely OK. The rooms are accessible from the deck via a spiral staircase, or a short walk to the parking area on a flagstone path.

The grounds were pretty spectacular. Roses in full bloom which my wife ooo'ed over, plus many trees & more flowers. Perhaps 6 dogs + 1 tiny kitten running around the property, they were all very friendly and well controlled. Breakfast was served on the huge deck. Excellent, french toast, ham, fresh fruit, OJ, lots of good coffee.

It was difficult to leave the deck in the morning, the sun was playing on the hills across the Snake River and a slight breeze made it a perfect morning. We had a very nice conversation with Julie the proprietor, she helped us expertly set up our day's adventures, very knowledgeable about the area's roads, trails, and stuff to do.
