Joseph, Oregon is a quaint town of about 1500 residents, tucked into the Wallowa Mountains on the north edge of Wallowa Lake. We love Joseph because it is the gateway to endless hiking, biking and skiing opportunities, as well as, home to friendly and colorful locals. Known as "Little Switzerland," once you have visited, you will never want to leave.
We chose to purchase in Joseph, rather than Wallowa Lake because we like the easy access to amenities like restaurants and shops, and we like the sunshine! The homes in the community of Wallowa Lake are tucked right up against the mountain-side, making the days feel shorter and cooler once the sun goes behind the mountain. Where ever you choose, this neck of the wood is amazing. We think you'll love it here!

As avid outdoorsmen, we first started visiting Joseph in 1998, when a coworker offered to let us stay in their cottage for the weekend. That weekend we fell in love with Joseph, the Wallowa Mountains and the amazing locals that live there.
We frequently visited Joseph for 15 years before we decided to purchase a home. After diligent house hunting, our real estate agent insisted we look at an adorable cottage we originally resisted because it was a bit out of our price range. When she led us into the front door, we instantly knew that the house felt familiar. As it turns out, this cottage, OUR cottage, was the exact house that my coworker lent to us 15 years prior. It was serendipitous. Meant to be. And now it is our little piece of paradise that we are excited to share with you.

Have questions? Just ask! We love pointing people in the right direction for great hikes, restaurants, galleries and things to do in the area. Our house managers are a quick 5 blocks away in case you need anything during your stay.
Our cottage is dog-friendly for most well-behaved, gracious pets--up to two dogs during a visit. Please request approval for your pet. We ask that you pick up after your dog and keep them off the furniture, make sure they are quiet, and wipe their feet before entering the house using dog-towels provided. Vacuum a couple times while you are there to stay on top of the hair. Treat our home better than your own to insure that we keep it dog friendly. We do not currently charge a pet fee--help us keep it that way!
The entire property is smoke-free. If you feel the need to smoke, please make alternative lodging choices.
This is a residential community! Please respect the neighbors by keeping your voice and music levels low. All music and conversation should be moved inside after 9pm.
Deer are abundant in Joseph. Although tempting, you should NEVER feed the wildlife. Don't be surprised to find deer staring at you through the front window.
Our little cottage means the world to us. Please treat it like your own and leave it in better condition than you found it.
