Your students or event participants will be staying in our three cozy European cottages, each with full kitchen and bathroom. They are located next to each other, in a quiet neighborhood on a rim above the quaint town of Mitchell.

We can accommodate up to 35 guests in shared rooms and dormitory space.

A small studio is available next to one of the cottages and ideal for holding your smaller workshops and classes.

For larger groups up to 35 or for movement workshops, such as yoga or dance classes, a beautiful spacious hall is available at Mitchell’s city hall just one-minute walking distance.

Outdoor Classrooms

Breathtaking landscapes such as the Painted Hills, Ochoco National Forest, or Sutton Mountains, besides other exciting points of interest, offer inspiration and a special setting for your outdoor events, adding to the unique experience of any retreat.

The magic Gardens of Painted Hills Vacation are an oasis in the desert and wonderful places for your outdoor classes and presentations. There is plenty of space to hang out and relax in the shade of the old fruit trees or have a BBQ or picnic after classes.

Painted Hills Vacation has its own professional mobile food cart, the DinoBite, on site that is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen. If a catering service is needed for your event, the DinoBite can be rented separately. The menu is flexible and can include non-vegetarian, vegetarian, and vegan options.
