The Painted Hills Vacation - Cottages & Retreat is family owned and operated by Barbara and Aruna Jacobi, a dynamic mother/daughter team. Natives of Germany, the Jacobi family has been living in the U.S. for almost 30 years.

After running a successful restaurant in Seattle's famous Pike Place Market for ten years, the Jacobi family felt that it was time for a change and, after much traveling, fell in love with Eastern Oregon. After settling in the small town of Mitchell, the family spent years remodeling 2 old houses inside and out, transforming them into works of art. Barbara, a writer and master gardener, created the beautiful gardens connecting the properties with many magic nooks and crannies. In 2008, Painted Hills Vacation was officially born.

In 2015, Painted Hills Vacation acquired a third property to expand the growing business. Barbara, with the help of some local handymen, remodeled it lovingly, adding a beautiful dormitory space on the lower level with two bathrooms and 10 more individual beds.

When not maintaining the cottages & gardens, Barbara and Aruna live on a 33-acre ranch out on Burnt Ranch Road, about 15 miles from the town of Mitchell, past the Painted Hills, close to Sutton Mountain and along the John Day River. They have come to know and love the area well and are happy to share with guests the secret places off the beaten track. They will point you in the right direction to find the most beautiful hiking trails, the best spots to fish and swim along the river, and the magnificent scenic byways in the region. Barbara can often be found in the gardens tending her plants, always happy to share a special moment with her guests.

Come as a stranger and leave as a friend!
