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!

It was the best

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful and it was so clean and nicely decorated. We so love the views of the mountains and they had a little bit of snow on their tops. We had 4 nice bucks who stay around and they were also down in the pond drinking water which I was able to take a few pictures of them. Thank you again.

Perfect for our family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything it was said to be. The kitchen and family room area was perfect for our family to gather. The swimming pond was the highlight of the weekend.

We will definitely be back!

Comfort in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The solar eclipse of Aug 21, 2017 brought our group of 14 to the George House. We were very pleased. 7 chose to sleep outside in tents leaving 7 sleeping inside in bedrooms that were very comfortable, especially the master bedroom. With a fan (provided) to disburse heat, the person who slept in the loft said it was fine. We could have easily fit more people sleeping indoors on couches and air mattress. The House is well equipped with sheets, towels, kitchen items and appliances. There was privacy and quiet all around, pleasant nights for sleeping, lovely views in all directions (when late summer wildfire smoke did not intervene). The pond looked like a late August desert pond should look with vegetation, but the water was refreshingly cool for swimming. The George House amplified our wonderful eclipse experience. I recommend the George House for anyone visiting the Baker City area.

Perfect location, hosts, and property!

  • 5 of 5

The George house was a perfect location for a recent reunion we had with family and friends. We had close to 20 people and had plenty of room. The swimming pond (with jumping platform!) is a great all day long activity. We also used the auxiliary garage to play music and stay up later than the kiddos sleeping in the house. We can't thank Jenny enough for her hospitality and availability and will definitely be back in 3 years.

Our grandchildren loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group and were able to have a pickup & camper on the property, too. There was enough seating for all of us at meals. We used a barbecue to cook as well. The weather was very hot and we really did need the box fans left by the manager, Jenny. She was wonderful, helpful and was able to respond quickly when requested. Thank you Jenny!

We loved that there were plenty of towels and three bathrooms. It is a good place for large families!

Our grandchildren loved the pond and being able to explore the property. They caught and released an array of frogs, salamanders, and newts. They enjoyed the pond toys and pool noodles.

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.

The George House is an easy 10 minutes from town yet in a rural setting with stunning country views. Just 25 minutes to Anthony Lakes and just around the corner from prime hunting grounds, this home is conveniently located! Enjoy the seasonal lake for swimming and canoeing in the summer and a bonfire with amazing sledding hills for all levels in the winter. With a 1500sq ft shop/party room for your convenience, this place has it all. The home is set 1/2 mile off of the road and provides peaceful privacy and a relaxing yet convenient place to enjoy your next family, work or just couples Eastern Oregon vacation.
