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.

The space
Whether you're traveling through for business, looking for a base for a multi-day exploration of the area, or on a week-end getaway, you will find this a clean, comfortable, and unique place to stay in our friendly town. We welcome guests to share the large deck and backyard, side yard, and creek side sitting area. The cottage is full of historic charm and recently remodeled and updated for your comfort.

Guest access
Fossil digging equipment, binoculars, bird books, games, books, area maps, bike pump and storage, and visitor information is available in the cottage.

In town you'll find two restaurants, a gas station, post office, hardware, liquor, grocery store, bakery, coffee shop, library, and a car charging station. Local churches welcome visitors and kids love our new playground and picnics in the city park.

Other things to note
We are happy to help you plan your visit, and can take you fossil hunting, bird watching, hiking, car tour, or bike shuttle with advanced arrangements.

Fossil, Oregon, United States

The neighborhood is great, with a mix of daytime activity, but quiet in the evenings and on weekends. 2 minute walk to the general store, restaurants, museum, playgrounds, and coffee shop. The Fossil Heritage Trail is a great way to get some exercise and see the town.

I grew up in the Portland area and now live in the tiny city of Fossil, OR. Our family here includes 2 dogs, 3 cats, and many friends. My whole family loves to travel, and I have been in all 50 states in the U.S., throughout Canada, Europe and the British Isles, Mexico, and South America. I love to host visitors from near and far at my airbnb cottage in Fossil, near The John Day Fossil Beds National Monument and the infamous Painted Hills. I am always happy to share my knowledge in Geology, Paleontology, Archeology, and general natural history with visitors of all ages.
