Black Butte Ranch house description

Golf Home 17, located directly behind the 7th Tee of Black Butte Ranch's Big Meadow championship course has been our vacation paradise for 24 years. Prior to this, our family rented this wonderful place every summer for 10 years.

We've never wanted to stay anywhere else on the Ranch! We keep it in immaculate condition.
Furnishings are eclectic with a mix of modern, traditional and antique. Single level floor plan is 1,800 sq. ft., plus double garage. There are three excellent Queen sized beds, two twins and a trundle bed.
The kitchen is fully stocked. The deck extends 60 feet across the back of the house, with two picnic tables, a 'sunbrella' and ample seating.

This is a great place to enjoy a family vacation. Golfers consider our home their ideal choice during all parts of the extended golfing season. The deck and living room windows offer an unmatched view of every drive off the tee. After hours access to the golf course is always fun for frisbee, walking, etc.
Located on Fiddleneck Lane, our quiet location is within an easy bike ride of two swimming pools, the main Lodge, canoeing, Recreation Barn (and climbing wall in summer), tennis courts, ball field, Restaurants, Big Meadow Club House and the driving range. In winter, one can often cross country ski right from our door and Hoodoo Ski Area is less than 15 miles away.

The house has mountain views of Three Fingered Jack, Mt Jefferson and Black Butte.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We are retired and live in Tacoma, WA. I am a Portland, OR native and my wife is from El Paso, TX. In retirement I co-manage a project to refurbish/repair bicycles, 'Bikes for Kids' for our church; my wife and I both are Hospice volunteers and active in Scottish Terrier Rescue Northwest. Black Butte Ranch is the perfect place for our vacation home, as it is at the transition point between Oregon's High Desert and the beautiful Oregon Cascades. We are outdoor people and can enjoy the combination of the warm dry desert weather and the cool, green mountain air.

Why the Owner Chose Black Butte Ranch:
We rented this house for 10 years of family vacations and purchased it from the owners when they decided to sell over 20 years ago. Black Butte Ranch is in a world class location with countless recreational opportunities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We continue to enjoy entertaining family and friends, but we must admit that most of our time here is spent keeping the house in top condition; it has truly been a labor of love. We like to watch the golfers, we walk, bike, swim and play tennis. We have used our house as a base of operations for extensive hiking, backpacking and climbing in the Three Sisters and Mt Jefferson Wilderness areas. My wife loves the nationally acclaimed Sisters Quilt Show in July and my grandsons and I love the annual Sisters Rodeo in June. There is no better place to enjoy a good book or take a nap by the fire.
