About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located on a rim above the town of Mitchell in a quite neighborhood. The lush garden is creating an atmosphere of privacy and seclusion with it's grown-in hedges, old apple trees and many other rare and exotic plants. Mitchell, a village with the old pioneer spirit, is the gateway to the Painted Hills, one of the 3 units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monuments. Both of the other units, Sheep Rock, and Clarno are within driving distance and are spectacular. The John Day River is close by and has many great hiking, fishing, boating, and swimming options. The Ochocco wilderness ,15 miles away from Mitchell offers cross country skiing and sledging in the winter, mushroom hunting and Thunder Egg mining in the summer.
