Joseph, Oregon is a quaint town of about 1500 residents, tucked into the Wallowa Mountains on the north edge of Wallowa Lake. We love Joseph because it is the gateway to endless hiking, biking and skiing opportunities, as well as, home to friendly and colorful locals. Known as "Little Switzerland," once you have visited, you will never want to leave.

We chose to purchase in Joseph, rather than Wallowa Lake because we like the sunshine and the easy access to amenities like restaurants and shops. The homes in the community of Wallowa Lake are tucked right up against the mountain-side, making the days feel shorter and cooler once the sun goes behind the mountain. Where ever you choose, this neck of the wood is amazing. We think you'll love it here!

--Downtown Joseph: 3 minute walk

As avid outdoorsmen, we first started visiting Joseph in 1998, when a coworker offered to let us stay in their cottage for the weekend. That weekend we fell in love with Joseph, the Wallowa Mountains and the amazing locals that live there.

We frequently visited Joseph for 15 years before we decided to purchase a home. After diligent house hunting, our real estate agent insisted we look at an adorable cottage we originally resisted because it was a bit out of our price range. When she led us into the front door, we instantly knew that the house felt familiar. As it turns out, this cottage, OUR cottage, was the exact house that my coworker lent to us 15 years prior. It was serendipitous. Meant to be. And now it is our little piece of paradise that we are excited to share with you.

I recently sold my company in Bend, Oregon and am currently practicing "first retirement" while I figure out my next entrepreneurial adventure. In the meantime, I am a business development consultant, hospitality and customer service trainer, and work with small businesses that are getting ready to sell their own companies. Outside of work, I'm a helluva community volunteer, avid outdoorsman, obsessive reader, pretty decent cook, dog lover, pig whisperer and generally like to spend my time outside on my bike, skies or my own two feet. My husband Adam and I can usually be found out on trail with our fuzzy buddies, Sara & Felipa.
