“Great home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2008

We took our terrier to BMF in March for a long weekend. We had great accomocations and good tips from our hosts - Hunter and Diana. We have been to the Enterprise area a number of times in the past and this was by far the best.

Comfortable beds, happy dogs and the best french toast ever!

Yes, this place has gorgeous scenery and is in an idyllic setting, but there are drawbacks. The owner, Diana, asked us to call on the road and give her an ETA. When we were about 6 hours out, we called, and she aked if she had previously informed us that there were steep stairs to our outside room. (No, she had not.)Yes, indeed the stairs were steep, and plenty of them. My old pug, with short legs and bad hips had to be carried up and down the stairs each time we went out. We booked this site as it purported to be "dog-friendly" and we were traveling with our pugs. Unfortunately, when we arrived, they were having an unprecendented heat wave, with temperatures soaring in the high 90's. Pugs are unable to breathe with temperatures much over 70, and we were forced to cut our trip short by one night and 2 breakfasts, to get home to our air conditioning and cooler temperatures. The manager, Diana, proceeded to charge us for the full amount. We paid it, as we had booked for the time, but she did not even deduct for meals that were not eaten. There was an air-conditioner in the room, but she would go into our room, when we were out shopping, and turn the unit down to the low setting, as it was obvious that she did not want to pay for the extra electricity. And I guess it is dog-friendly, if you desire to leash your pet, tackle those steep stairs, walk across the road, then down the road, to get into the designated doggie area, which turned out to be a cow pasture with cow-pies galore. No, the dogs were not allowed on the grass of the front yard, immediately adjacent to the apartment. The room was beautifully furnished, with the bed sumptously appointed with pillows, and throws, and a duvet. Too bad all that money spent to accent the bed was not spent on the mattress itself. The mattress was as hard as an ironing board. I was forced to sleep on the slightly softer couch, and my husband had to dismantle the foam dog beds we had created in the back of the car, drag them up the stairs, and place them on top of the bed, just to be able to lie on the bed. Also, if you plan to have a "discreet" getaway, think twice about that one too. In the course of conversation with the husband, he revealed personal information about a professional woman in the town where I have worked, who had also visited. So not-cool. In conclusion, all the lavender-cream on waffles in the world would not persuade me to either stay here again, or recommend it to anyone I cared about that might want a comfortable night's sleep.

Sometimes, even with the best of intentions in trying to describe one's property both on line and on the phone, there is a bad fit. Sometimes, the weather doesn't cooperate and sometimes expectations are not met despite our best intentions.
Taking five elderly and/or sick pugs and their owners during a heat wave was obviously one of those unfortunate times! We regret that our guests, and the owners of the pugs, didn't mention any or all of these problems at the time they were here, so we could attempt to make their experience better -but they did not!

We spent three wonderful days in July at the Barking Mad Farm B&B in Enterprise, Oregon. Enterprise is near the little town of Joseph, and about three miles from beautiful Lake Wallawa, in northeastern Oregon. It is in a high valley surrounded by mountains where the snowpack melts into the clear lake. The bed and breakfast is a farm with burros, horses, dogs, cats, cattle and bison, and your dog or horse is welcome, too. There are two rooms available, one in the restored farmhouse, and one in a guest-house, both with their own baths. Diana and her husband Hunter are wonderful hosts, and Diana is a fine cook. The breakfast were sumptious! We will definitely be making a return visit.

On a recent visit to Wallowa County, Oregon, I spent two nights at Barking Mad Farm, a bed and breakfast. From the moment I arrived, I was very impressed. I was looking to get away from things, and the location could not be beat! It is located in a valley surrounded by mountains and pastures however it is only a mile from town. The hosts were very gracious and helped me plan out a wonderful day exploring the county. Breakfasts both mornings were delicious and filling. The owners have a number of animals on sight including mules, horses, cat and dogs so animals lovers will rejoice. I stayed in the main house in the Buffalo Suite which has a private bath and has great views of the valley. I highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast if you are visiting the area.
