About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

DeWayne's Place is a 580 square foot home built in the 1930's C.C.C. Home built during the Roosevelt administration; built in Pondosa Oregon to house the workers that built Highway 86 which we now call the Hells Canyon Scenic By-Way. After the road was built the houses were torn down, brought into Baker City and resold as kit homes.

Our recent renovations to the home included insulation never seen in the house before, new plumbing, heating, electrical, windows and doors and a completely remodeled interior. We are proud to say we used all local businesses to do this project and furnish the home, other than the bedroom set which is an original set from my husband’s mom and dad.

This one bedroom, one bath home has custom tile work and a deep soaking tub, a kitchen/living area with granite counter tops, custom cabinets filled with everything you need to use our stainless steel appliances and a gas range and make a feast my dad would have wanted to enjoyed with you. Big screen TV and mission style reclining chairs in the living room will be a welcome place to relax at the end of a hard day of skiing, hiking, fishing our exploring historic places in the area.

Situated within walking distance of Historic Baker City, Anthony Lakes Ski Resort is just 30 minutes from our front door and Hells Canyon and the Snake River are only an hour east of us.

We won't nickle and dime you with cleaning fees and costly deposits, just the cleanest, most plush, up to date vacation rental in Baker County for an awesome price. Summer rental requests for less than one week are accepted within 60 days of the arrival date.

About Debi Bainter

Mike is owner operator for Baker County Pest Control and Debi runs the Baker County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau for our day jobs. We have made working on DeWayne's Place as our after hours career for the past year and a half. Summer rental requests for less than one week are accepted within 60 days of the arrival date.

Debi Bainter purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why Debi Bainter chose Baker City

DeWayne's Place is named after my Dad, Duane. Dad had a nickname at our house; 'De-Wayne' is his name, fun and laughter is his game.

Dad was living in Minnesota and diagnosed with CHF and Diabetes. When he was starting to need some extra help we bought the house next door for him to stay in while he was here visiting with us in Eastern Oregon. But, he never got to see it.

It has been said that once you've met Duane, you were automatically friend and family. So my husband and I decided to continue working on the house and make it a place people could visit, after all Duane loved visitors.

What makes this bungalow unique

In this small town of Baker City, you have the unexpected opportunity to feel pampered in a house you would think you can only find in the big city.

Totally Amazing Place for Total Solar Eclipse Visit

  • 5 of 5

We found and booked DeWayne's Place for a week in advance of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. What a beautiful and charming place it was. Perfect for two, and completely modern and updated inside and out. We had everything we needed, the house was very clean, and our hosts were a text away, or just next door if we needed anything. This was one of the nicest VRBO units we have rented. Full information about the area was provided, as the owner was previous head of Chamber of Commerce/Visitors Bureau. Pictures don't do it justice. Wild quail and goldinches were common each day.

We enjoyed the entire solar eclipse from the front yard, sipping coffee and tea, instead of being tied up in monstrous traffic.

We would not hesitate to recommend this unit for couples for any type of getaway!

Small but very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

At 580 sq.ft. Dewayne's Place is small but very well appointed. The kitchen has new appliances (gas range with electric oven, 1100 watt microwave, big fridge), every conceivable cooking tool, plentiful dishes and flatware, a comfortable bathtub, quiet neighborhood and a recent remodel. Situated near the heart of Baker City, you can walk to downtown and numerous restaurants. Owner Debi has provided a generous supply of brochures for all your local outdoor and recreational needs. Watch for the covey of quail in the yard early in the mornings. Give Dewayne's a try, you won't regret it.

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Debi has done a wonderful job of making the little cottage very comfortable. She has definitely thought through everything a person may need when renting a house. She was great about finding us a safe place for our bicycles and gave us some awesome peaches!! It is in a great location to walk or ride bikes downtown. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. We found it very warm and cozy.

We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Excellent, comfortable and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little place. All of the necessary comforts. Great kitchen, fully stocked and ready to cook. Backyard and deck were a relaxing oasis. The bedroom was well appointed, comfortable and clean bedding. Fans throughout were welcome for some cool air. Bathroom was great and had all we needed. The TV and surround system were perfect for winding down at night. Thanks for a great stay!
