The Arrowhead Ranch Cabins
Located in a quiet ranching area approximately 3 miles from the towns of Joseph and Enterprise, Oregon, and approximately 6 miles north of beautiful Wallowa Lake is the perfect getaway. The historic Arrowhead Ranch, once known for prize hereford cattle and quarter horses, sits at the foothills of the spectacular Wallowa Mountains. It is also near the entrance to Hells Canyon Recreational Area and the Zumwalt Prairie, North America's largest remaining grassland of its type. There is easy access to the many Wallowa County adventures, outdoor recreational opportunities and summer events.
The historic Arrowhead Ranch has two knotty pine cabins available for guests. Built in 1890 as ranch wagon houses, they were extensively remodeled into ranch-hand bunkhouses in 1950 and modern guest cabins in 1995. Each sleeps four people comfortably and has a living room, bedroom and bath, and a full service kitchen. The immaculately clean and well maintained cabins are furnished for relaxed comfort with overstuffed chairs, cotton bed linens, quilts and down comforters. The kitchens are equipped with a full set of pots and pans, dishes, and utensils. A geothermal heat pump system keeps the cabins toasty warm on cool nights and comfortably cool on hot summer days. Photos of the cabins appear below. There is a charcoal barbeque available for your outdoor cooking.
The cabins sit in the ranch's park-like atmosphere between the main ranch house and the historic peg-constructed barn. The barn, built in 1888, was featured on the cover of "Country Extra" magazine and has been on the Wallowa County Barn Tour for a number of years. The cabins are ideal for a quiet mountain vacation, small group or family reunions. Testimonials from some of our guests attest to the unique character of the ranch.
Additional photos of the cabins and the ranch can be seen on the "More Photos" link. The "Map" button located to the left will show the location of the cabins and provides driving instructions. We suggest you use this map rather than your vehicle gps as the route will be more direct.
