The Urban Duck is a cosy, private bungalow nestled on the edge of a large, private duck pond. Find the perfect balance of quiet and seclusion at this idyllic retreat for couples, solos and business travelers alike. Equipped with a kitchenette, refrigerator, bathroom with ensuite rainfall shower, high speed internet, Roku and DISH TV. Outside on the private patio, under the shade of apple trees, is a BBQ, dining area, firepit, and a clawfoot tub, perfect for a relaxing or romantic outdoor soak.
Located just a short walk to downtown, and right on the shore of our small private lake, the Urban Duck bungalow offers the perfect balance of convenience and quiet seclusion.
At 250sqf, this is an intimate studio-style space that will suit up to two adults. It has a comfortable queen size bed with high quality soft linens, plus a glass en-suite shower with spa-like rainfall shower head with shower hydro massage, and luxury, white towels. The toilet is in a private room with a hand washing sink and mirror.
The bungalow is an efficient use of space, equipped with all the basics to make your stay comfortable, including the ability to prepare simple meals. There is a laptop-friendly desk and a chair for working or writing, plus complimentary high speed wireless internet and a TV with streaming ROKU and DISH satellite. Then, retire to your supremely comfortable bed with luxurious sheets and pillows for a wonderful night’s sleep. You will awake in the morning to the sounds of ducks and geese talking to their babies that swim in the pond all Summer long.
A glass sliding door opens to the outside patio that is partially shaded by mature apple trees and overlooks the pond. Just steps away, the ducks, geese and our very own swan “Virginia” will swim right up to the pond’s edge for a visit and a snack. Drink your morning coffee or eat breakfast at the patio table and chairs while watching the wildlife. At the end of the day, light a fire in the small fire pit, cook a BBQ dinner and enjoy a glass of wine. Take a long, luxurious soak in the rustic claw foot tub, discreetly placed in a private corner on the rear deck, under the romantic ambience of string lights hanging up in the trees.
The Urban Duck is equipped with a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, electric skillet, dishes, cups, drinking glasses and utensils. Assorted teas and Keurig coffee pods are provided. Everything you need for a cosy and comfortable stay.
If you want to be close to nature while still enjoying modern, urban living, this is a paradise you will treasure. If you are a traveling on business, you will be proud to host a client or two in our outdoor patio setting to "sign the papers" or "close the deal”.
The popular tourist town of Joseph is just 5 miles up the road, with shopping, museums, cafes, brewpubs and restaurants. The county’s crown jewel, beautiful Wallowa Lake, is a large alpine lake with crystal clear waters. Hiking, biking, fishing, boating, swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, scuba diving, even go-karting – it’s all here.
We have a dedicated on-site parking space or your car, plus additional parking space for your boat, motorcycle or other recreational gear.
Our other Airbnb vacation rental home – the “Swan's Nest – is next door, but you’ll find there is plenty of privacy provided for both groups of guests. The "Swans Nest" is our 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom rental home for larger families and groups. Both the Urban Duck and the Swan's Nest can be rented for group get togethers, including family reunions, classmate reunions, and special events.
The neighborhood is a private setting on a private pond surrounded by trees. The property has the only dwellings on the entire west side of the large pond. The Ducks and Geese are the noisiest neighbors and provide hours of entertainment. Our local Safeway Grocery store is less than a five minute drive away and so is the heart of Enterprise, however, walking to just about anywhere in Enterprise is an option also.
Deer may wander into the yard to eat fallen apples from the apple trees and the local Ospreys will show off their fishing skills by diving into the pond and flying away with a fish. We have owned this property for several years and are still in awe of the wildlife display all around us, everyday. It's a very special part of the country.
