Contact us thru John Day Valley Rentals
Prairie City Oregon, at the east end of the John Day Valley in the Strawberry and Blue mountains. It is one of the few remaining classic American towns beautifully located.
Chucks Diner, right downstairs, is quite good and Valeria the owner and waitress is a saint. The Ox Bow, just up the street is classic and dinner and a drink must be had.

The John Day Valley is located in Eastern Oregon, approximately 135 miles east of Bend, Ore & 190 miles east of Boise, Idaho & 100 miles south of Pendleton, Ore. & 75 miles North of Burns, Ore. The two highways to John Day are Hwy 26, east/west and Hwy 395 north/south.
Prairie City is 14 miles east of John Day on Hwy 26.
This is a classic simple american town with a couple of very nice shops and restaurants.
It is an easy drive in every direction from mountains, rivers, lakes, parks, bike runs,
x-country skiing, fossil beds, orchards and a couple of other very neat small towns located down valley. The population in this county is the same as it was in 1956 yet only a click away from the outside world in many ways.

Spacious and well furnished with comfortable sleeping arrangements. The best part is the view of the Strawberry Mountains. The diner downstairs has great breakfasts!

Thanks for the window alert. Have already fixed the drawer problem. Chucks Diner downstairs is a go to place for Sunday breakfast.

Prairie City is very small, it was nice to have a place to cook while on the road. The communication with the owners was great, and the price was reasonable.
