Welcome to the Painted Hills Vacation Rentals
~ Come and discover the wild beauty of Eastern Oregon ~
The Painted Hills Vacation Rentals with its two cozy European cottages is perfectly located to visit the Painted Hills, one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon and one of the 3 units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. This is the place to come to explore the breathtaking landscapes of the Sutton Mountain Wilderness and John Day River Territory as well as Sheep Rock and Clarno, the two other units of the National Monument, all easy to reach by car on the “Journey through Time” Scenic Byway. Smith Rock, another one of the 7 Oregonian wonders is only 1.5 hours away.
The 2 cottages, the Painted Hills Cottage and the Hollyhock Guest House surrounded by lush floral gardens, feature everything needed for a perfect vacation and make ideal bases for exploring this special region. This is the perfect place for a memorable adventure filled holiday, a romantic getaway or a family reunion!
Since summer 2014, there is also a 3rd cottage available, the Sunset Cottage with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, located across the street from the other two properties.
We invite you to come and discover these ancient lands of Eastern Oregon made up of vast sage brush desert, untamed rivers and creeks, deep ravines and canyons, looming rocks and distant mountain buttes. Hike in pristine untouched wilderness areas on unbeaten paths! Go fossil hunting in one of the world’s most significant geological areas! Visit the Thomas Condon Paleontology Museum at the Sheep Rock unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument to get a glimpse of the 50 million year old history of this region! Take a scenic boat trip down the John Day River, one of the longest un-dammed rivers in the USA! In winter, go cross-country skiing or sledging in the Ochoco Wilderness! Experience the wild beauty of Mother Nature wherever you go! See antelopes, deer, coyotes, humming birds and butterflies, and enjoy the starry skies in the deep silence of the nights!
After a full day of adventures, you will enjoy getting back home to the restful cottages and the garden - a peaceful oasis in the desert, and a great place to spend quality time with yourself and with loved ones!
