A Great B&B in Joseph

My wife and I spent three nights at the Bronze Antler. The room was very nice and comfortable. The innkeepers were very friendly and were most helpful in advising us on places to visit and things to see in the area. Heather's breakfasts were delicious.

Great stay

Staying at the Bronze Antler B&B made our first trip to Joseph, OR a memorable one!! The B&B hosts: Heather & Bill, were warm, friendly, and quite knowledgeable about all of the local amenities. The B&B itself was charming and clean!! We will definitely be back!! :)

Bronze Antler B&B is in a gorgeous location. The mountain range of the Wallowa Mountains frame the view from the breakfast table. The living space is very comfortable and conductive to chatting with other guests.

We'll be back!

On a road trip through eastern Oregon, my husband and I made a stop here for two nights to recharge. What a wonderful experience! Heather was wonderfully welcoming, and had many good suggestions for activities and dining. Being able to walk to shops, galleries and restaurants was a definite plus! The breakfasts were outstanding! We will definitely stay here again if we are in the vicinity.

best B&B ever

I did a one day Trip to Joseph and decided to stay there for a night. Lucky me that I got the last available room at the Bronze Antler. Heather is a sweetheart and took care about everything. As a European, i thought i haven't to look on the time about having Dinner. So i was pretty late and Heather called one of the restaurants to ask, if their kitchen will be still open. They said, they will wait for me, if i'm coming immediately. Also for breakfast, you can get everything, if you let them know what you like or not or if you need special food. My room was perfect and it would acommodate easiely two people. You get bathrobes, slippers and in the bathroom they offer great products to use. If i'm coming back go Joseph, I will definately stay there again.

Relax adn Enjoy!

Signature Dish

Individual Egg Souffle
Bill loves to prepare egg souffle for each guest. Stuffed with Italian sausage and smoked Gouda cheese, the souffle floats on a spinach creme sauce, accompanied by tomatoes marinated in balsamic vinegar and Herbes de Provence, basil and garlic polenta, and freshly baked muffins or scones. Show up early or show up on time but not late, we warn, 'else you'll be eating hockey puck (smile)!
