About the property

4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths

The home is centered on a 320-acre cattle ranch in the foothills of the Elkhorn Ridge of the Blue Mountains. The house is at 4,200 ft elevation and the ridge rises to 9,000 ft. Two small streams flow through the property where you can fish or wade or 'swim' in a deep spot. Hiking, riding, snowmobiling, mountain biking, sledding, hunting and cross country skiing are as close as the front door while Baker and Union counties offer countless more opportunities. Anthony Lakes ski area is famous for powder snow and is only is 19 miles away. Water skiing and sail boarding are nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not datedThe clans of McL…, McN…& W… gathered for a feast & friendship. As Spring is upon us we enjoyed music, wine & the laughter of nine children & 8 adults. Skiing was good, hiking was great and plans were made to repeat the experience. Thanks to our hosts for everything.

Great Family Getaway - Maggie M.

  • 5 of 5

We came from WA, OR, UT and CO to spend Thanksgiving together. The house was beautiful, comfortable and had everything we needed to make Thanksgiving Dinner. Loved hiking on the property and visiting. Especially loved seeing the herd of Elk that came two mornings in a row. Loved the quiet and was the perfect place to have fun with our family. We'll be back!

We and our extended family just spent 6 glorious days at the Orville Chandler Ranch. We could not have asked for anything more perfect! The home is easily accessed and so wonderfully quiet. Very tastefully decorated and beds for everyone. Even better were the 3.5 bathrooms which made mornings work out so very well. The home is equipped with everything you need. The kitchen pantry was even well stocked with spices! The wrap around decks made the early morning sunrise even better and the showcase of stars at night impossible to walk away from. We were able to visit other VRBO's in the area and are convinced that choosing the Chandler Ranch was the best decision! Thank you so much to all that care for this wonderful place!

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four night with a total of three families. Plenty of room for everybody. The kids played all day outside on hikes, looking for gold, and riding bikes. The adults did nothing but eat and drink. Can not wait for next year.

Owner's Response: We're so happy that you had a great time, and that the kids did what many generations of Chandlers have done ... explore every tree and rock, while finding adventures at every turn! This is what makes wonderful memories and we're glad to share in creating them.

Nearest Ski
19 Miles
Anthony Lakes Ski Resort
Car: necessary

Haines, population 350, is 8-miles distant and Baker City, population 10,000, is 20-miles. Baker Valley is now devoted to agriculture and was a thriving gold mining center with numerous ghost towns to explore. The Oregon Trail passed through the valley below the ranch and the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is about 25-miles away. Deer, elk, coyote, turkey, bear and other wild animals live on the ranch and can be seen from the house. The ranch includes both forest and open fields. During the summer cattle graze just outside of the yard. This home was designed and built for vacations, and was completed in January 2003. We have tried to include everything to make your stay comfortable. The nearest neighbor is 1/2 mile away so privacy and quiet is assured.
