What guests are saying:

“We stayed here for the second time. We had a fantastic, relaxing time. Location is absolutely stunning with incredible views- very close proximity to the painted hills. Hosts were very hospitable and lovely. We visited with the goats and chickens and the kids had a wonderful time. Highly recommend this unique and amazing AirBnb. Pro tip: fridge is small-bring a cooler and plan on fast/easy meals, including using ingredients that don’t require refrigeration. We pre-made a lot of our meals to limit prep time and need to refrigerate too many items at once. Pre-prepped food= more time to relax and enjoy the beautiful views.”

What guests are saying:

“We've stayed at a lot of wonderful places in a lot of wonderful places but we have to say this is likely the most unique airbnb experience we've had. Perhaps the fact that we're staying in a 115 yr. old School house has something to do with it? Or the incredibly beautiful area that surrounds us? Or the back road to the Painted Hills and John Day river? Or the singing Coyotes? Or the incredible host D who regaled us with both her generosity, attentiveness and wonderful storytelling of the history of her home and school house. All of these things were a part of our fantastic two nights in Twickenham--a visit we will never forget. This is as unique as it gets--if you're heading for the Painted Hills and looking for space under the darkest of night skies this is the place. Thanks D--we look forward to returning.”

Fossil Country Cottage.

Fossil Country Cottage.

A great spot for a getaway any time of year! Cozy cottage perfect for your visit to the John Day River Territory. Bicycle and family friendly, our cottage has views of the mountains and amazing starry night skies. Located in the heart of Fossil, you'll be just steps from the natural history visitor center, historic courthouse, minutes to Main Street restaurants and shops, fossil digging, and museum.

What guests are saying:

“This is a wonderful place to stay if you're getting off the grid in Oregon. The cottage was incredibly easy to find in the small town of Fossil and check-in was a breeze. Super comfy and offered any amenity I could have needed. Loved the thoughtful touches including a tool basket to borrow for a fossil dig. It was perfect for a solo traveler coming into the area for a hiking adventure- my stay was safe and quiet. As others have warned, note the spotty cell/wifi reception throughout Eastern Oregon- be prepared to lose signal and plan ahead with a map and full tank of gas. I highly recommend Anne's place! Five stars all-around.”
