About Jenny Boehs

We are a growing family of 4 who fell in love with eastern Oregon! We lived out there for just over two years and moved back to the Portland area to be closer to family for the kiddos.

Jenny Boehs purchased this house in 2014

Why Jenny Boehs chose Eastern Oregon

The location of the property was picture perfect and we fell in love right away. We enjoyed horses on the property and even got married in the shop! The views are out of this world and the house just always felt like home. There is something special out there we always look forward to going back and visiting our little piece of paradise! We hope you do too!

What makes this house unique

The home itself isn't like most rentals. Being just 10 min out of town you can enjoy the sound of piece and quiet! There so many stars visible at night and even get a pretty good show of shooting stars most clear days of the week. Being able to swim in the pond in the summer just right outside your door is a piece of heaven and then sledding down the hills in the winter that the empty pond provides is a huge bonus for the kids! There are corrals and fencing to bring out your horses and you can even ride around the open property! This place really has a little bit of everything for someone who is looking to get out of the city and get some country fresh air!

The perfect place for a family gathering

  • 4 of 5

Wow! The view of sunrise and sunset from east and west decks are reason enough to rent this little place in the middle of the valley. The layout of the home gives privacy when needed, and offers a comfortably large space for family activity. The teenage girls with us enjoyed canoeing on the pond to stay cool in the sunshine.

The loft is a fun and inviting space, and the teens quickly claimed it as their own. However, west-facing windows without shades add significant heat to the home in the afternoon, and without air conditioning, make the loft an unreasonably hot place to sleep.

The large plot of land, complete with visiting deer, was just 'remote' enough, with town just minutes away. The July community celebration of Miners Jubilee added delight to our experience.

Jenny was an attentive host, even when she was traveling; and kept us informed. She made sure we had all that we needed to be comfortable.

Bottom line... I would rent this place again in a heartbeat. The only reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is: 1) the inability to control for the heat and 2) the place was a little overgrown, making it a little difficult to access and enjoy the pond.

Perfect place for our family to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The George House. The house was the perfect size for our family with plenty of room to spread out. The family room was very open and the kitchen was well equipped. Our host was very helpful and friendly and responded very quickly to any questions we had. We enjoyed campfires almost every night by the pond with beautiful views of the mountains. The house was very clean and had everything we needed!

Great location and house with lots of room and kitchen utensils

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this house. Have nothing negative to stay except if there had been a foosball table or ping pong in the spacious garage, we might have never left the house. Very clean. Amazing views. Peaceful and quiet. Thank you.

Comfortable, quiet stay close to Anthony Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this large cabin with my inlaws and friends. The house comfortably slept 7. One other slept on the blow up mattress in the living room. The kitchen/dining room is set up well for cooking and dining with 15+ people. We were not able to get the cable to work during our stay, but choose instead to watch one of the many DVDs provided by the house so it was not a big deal to us. Other than the cable issue the only toiletries provided was a half empty bottle of shampoo in the guest shower. Luckily I brought my own bar soap, shampoo, and conditioner. While I mentioned these "issues" in the review, they did not affect how much we enjoyed the house. Lastly, it takes about 35-40 mintutes to get to and from Anthony Lakes from the house in the winter. Thank you for a lovely stay!
