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!

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!

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the George House. Beckie was very accommodating! The house was fully stocked with all the cooking supplies, blankets, towels, etc. that we needed. And, the empty pond made for an excellent sledding hill! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a great time at our country retreat! The sledding this year has been out of this world and the kids have loved it!! Shortly after your visit we upgraded somethings and got all new living room furnishings that include a very comfortable recliner as well as an amazing gourmet knife set for the kitchen! There a more things to come this next year to continue to keep The George House a five star experience. We hope you enjoyed the complimentary hoody and we sure look forward to seeing you again next year! Best regards, Rachelle George, Owner March, 2017

House was great for large group. Spacious and welcoming.

  • 4 of 5

Great location in terms of accessing Anthony Lakes. Only complaint was kitchen. All knives were very dull (bring your own if you want to do some cooking!) and pots and pans felt old and used. Otherwise, kitchen was great space to hang out. Wonderful views.

The house is beautifully located and comfortable for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and loved the views out the large windows. There is adequate seating in living and dining area for a large group. Sleeping loft is in living area so anyone using it will hear TV if on. If visiting in winter as we did, you will need 4 wheel drive or traction devices to navigate the circular drive around the house b/c it isn't plowed. Bedroom with queen bed could use a fix on attic access to keep cold air out. Convenient to accessing Anthony Lakes ski area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and suggestions. These recommendations are what allows us to better The George House for future guests and for that we are grateful. We have addressed the attic issue and we are actually putting all new carpet in the three bedrooms which will help the third room stay warm on those cold Baker City winter days. Unfortunately, we do have a plow service but it seems like we were unable to get him out there in time for your stay. We are under new management and am happy to say that the snow will not be an issue again for travelers. I apologize for any inconvenience it created and look forward to you returning to enjoy the new upgrades and as always, amazing views. Thanks again for your kind words and positive suggestions! My Best, Rachelle George, Owner
