Kick back and relax in this beautiful, open plan round house, uniquely situated on a private pond with ducks, geese and even a white swan. The huge wraparound deck, outdoor BBQ and fully equipped kitchen make this the ideal vacation home for entertaining. Meticulously clean, with heavenly beds and spa-like bathrooms, this thoughtfully appointed home is the ideal getaway for friends or families to enjoy time together. High speed internet, DISH TV, plus a laptop-friendly workspace in every room.

The space
This uniquely designed, round house of nearly 2,000 square feet, will be your home away from home during your stay in beautiful Wallowa County. A nature lover’s delight, you will see all kinds of wildlife from every window – including birds and local deer.

Located on an historic mill property, the house is decorated in a mid-century industrial style, with unique pieces from local and internationally renowned artists. It offers an open floor plan, with large, comfortable L-shaped sofa, plus large screen TV in the main living area. The centerpiece of the front room is the large brick fireplace, while the large kitchen has concrete countertops and a breakfast bar, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, pantry, dishwasher – as well all the kitchen appliances and cookware you would want or need to create a culinary feast. The dining room table provides seating for eight, plus another four at the kitchen breakfast bar. There’s also a washer and dryer for your convenience.

Each of the three bedrooms offers privacy, with a spacious, comfortable bed, high quality soft linens, closet, dresser, side tables, a large screen TV, and laptop friendly workspace.

The master bedroom offers a king bed, plus a large en-suite bathroom with a two person claw-foot tub, dual sink vanities and endless hot water. The second and third bedrooms have a queen size bed. The loft has two twin sized mattresses and is located above the main living area. (Note: access is via built-in step ladder, which we don’t recommend for the very young or very old). There is also a rollout bed in the master bedroom closet for a 9th guest.The main house bathroom has a spa-like rainfall shower head with multi functional nozzles, including shower hydro massage, and endless hot water. The bathrooms are equipped with luxury, white towels for your enjoyment.

Complimentary High Speed Wireless Internet and DISH TV is provided throughout the property.

Outside, you’ll find a BBQ grill for evening cookouts, an eating bar that overlooks the pond, with bar stools, well as a fire pit with seating in the yard. There’s even a porch swing for quiet reading and relaxation.

Sitting right on the water's edge, you can stand on the deck and feed the ducks and geese in the mornings while drinking your morning coffee. Or wind down the day with your drink of choice as the sun goes down. In the mornings, the sunlight shimmers off the water and reflects onto the vaulted ceilings in a spectacular light display unique to the round architecture of this 18 corner house. The large front room windows offer a 180-degree view of the ducks and geese taking off and landing on the small lake.

Conveniently located just a few blocks away from grocery stores and cafes, and just minutes from popular Joseph, picturesque Wallowa Lake and even more shopping, eating and entertainment options.

Meticulously clean accommodations, the Swan’s Nest offers offers an idyllic, quiet vacation spot suitable for a couple or a small group up to 9 guests. (For more than 9 guests, please contact us to discuss).

Guest access
You will have access to the entire house, deck and yard. There is a small bungalow cottage on the property that is a separate AirBnB listing – The Urban Duck – which is also available to rent, if your group requires more accommodations. The Urban Duck is located at the end of the deck, but is fenced off to provide privacy to both sets of guests. For our Swan’s Nest guests, we have protected parking under the carport for two vehicles, plus driveway parking for several more on our private property. So if you are wondering about bringing your boat for fishing or recreation on Wallowa Lake the answer is "YES" there is room for parking at the house. If you require RV parking, please contact us with details prior to making your reservation.

Other things to note
This is a whole house vacation rental and there is no cleaning service during your stay, unless prior arrangements are made with host and/or third party cleaning service, if available. Guests can use the washer and dryer as needed and fresh linens and towels can be provided upon request. A vacuum cleaner, broom, and other cleaning supplies are provided for guests.
Hot water is an on-demand and continuous system (it never runs out). While a long shower can be taken without fear of running out of hot water it does have its limitations in that only one hot water source can be used at a time (i.e. you can not fill the tub in the master bath while trying to take a shower in the second bath). We find this way more convenient than having to wait for a conventional water tank to recover from a family's hot water hog (you know who you are...wink) taking too long of a shower. Also, the large claw foot tub can be filled completely without the hot water running out. All in all, it is a trade off, but one we find works best overall and when the house has a lot of people needing to get ready at one time.

The Swan's Nest sits on the South West edge of Enterprise, Oregon in the beautiful Wallowa Valley. The whole county is known for what it doesn't have – and that there is not a single traffic light in the entire county....Not one! It has an isolated beauty yet bustles with excitement during the Summer, with the many community events such as the Fourth of July fireworks display over Wallowa Lake, Wallowa County Fly-in, Chief Joseph Days Rodeo, and the Main Street Show & Shine Car Show. The quaint City of Joseph (the county jewel) is located just 5 miles away with the clear waters of Wallowa Lake just a mile beyond that. Joseph is lined with large bronze statues from several artists and bronze foundries in the area. The Main Street offers high class shopping with stylish boutiques, art galleries and museums that will keep you exploring shops and history alike for hours. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at a local cafe, restaurant or brew pub. Wallowa Lake is a water lover's paradise. Whether you like to fish, kayak, paddle board, scuba dive or just like to swim and soak in the alpine sun, Wallowa Lake has it all. Hiking in the beautiful Wallowa Mountains is a must, if you are up for it. There are several hikes from less than a mile to several days. In short there is plenty to do. Come and bring friends and family with you and stay at the Swan's Nest...you'll have a ball!

My wife Danelle (pronounced Da-Nell) and I are just reaching our 50’s and are both lucky enough to be in a position to be able to retire. I retired from the Air Force in 2006 and Danelle hung up her scissors after owning her own beauty salon for 20 years. We have been together for 8+ years and have 4 children between us. Her two are 29 and 21 and mine are 23 and 19. We are new to the empty nesting but are sure getting used to the benefits which include traveling. Last year we decided to full time in our RV and absolutely love it. We get to see the country on our terms. In the Summer time we return home and live on our Super-duper RV pad we built for ourselves while renting our house and studio out as Vacation Rentals on Airbnb. This helps us fund our winter RV travels. Danelle is the spearhead behind all things “business” about vacation renting and I am just what I call the “eye candy” of our venture...she is definitely the smart one out of the two of us. lol.
