“Joseph Oregon has always been a special place to us. Our family has lived in Wallowa County for 35 years. We are thrilled to call it home & offer you a beautiful place to enjoy while you are here.”

We created Lake Street House to share this little slice of heaven with you. From the deepest glacieral made lake to our favorite local coffee shop, Joseph offers something for everyone.

Take a day drive to Imnaha or Hells Canyon lookout – the deepest canyon in the country is just a stunning 70 minute drive away. Perfect for the motorcycle enthusiast. Highway 39 has been hailed as 1 of the top 10 rides in the country.

Love to SUP, kayak, water ski or hike? Wallowa Lake and the Eagle Cap Mountain range await! For the winter enthusiast, you are only 30 minutes from the snow park. Go snowmobile, back-country ski and snowshoe or spend the day at our local ski area, Ferguson Ridge.

Maybe you need some R&R. Lake Street House is the space for rest and rejuvenation and our little town is quiet, quaint and fun. Downtown Joseph is 1 block away and Main St is filled with beautiful shops, art galleries, eateries, coffee houses, and more.

All locally owned and unique. You won’t find the usual franchises and everyday knickknacks here. Many a Summer night you will find live music and entertainment, or enjoy the Summer sunset from Lake Street House front porch or private 2nd story balcony.

Walk & Shop Main St Joseph:

Start at Red Horse Coffee Shop with a delicious homemade breakfast and cup of their roasted coffee! My fave is their homemade Chai Tea and veggie breakfast burrito with bacon; everything’s better with bacon!

Then walk your way up one side of Main St, enjoying the stunning little town with cobblestone sidewalks, local shops, & bronze sculptures on every corner. As you stroll be sure to stop in at To Zion, Teal Boutique, Heidi’s, Valley Bronze gallery, Copper Creek, BeeCrowBee, Kelly’s gallery, Simply Sandy’s, Stewart Jones, Arrowhead (handmade amazing chocolates), Lamb’s Trading Post (perfect for women who love jewelry and men who love all things fishing!), Sports Coral and Josephy center.

There are so many more wonderful shops and restaurants along the way, so be sure to stroll through them all to find that perfect gift for no reason!

Lake Street House sits right in the heart of it all.  Cozy, convenient & oh so comfortable. We created this place for the very purpose of ensuring you enjoy your much deserved vacation!
