Klamath Falls house description

This is a wonderful family home that sits on the top-of-the-ridge at the Running Y. The rear deck of the house faces down the ridge to the golf course and the front faces the lake. The house is located in in a cul-de-sac in one of the most desirable locations of the ranch. This cul-de-sac on the ridge has a group of wonderful neighbors who built their homes when these most desirable lots were available. It is a quiet neighborhood with access to all the hiking and biking trails right from the home.

We had this home with three car garage built for us in 1998 by one of the finest local builders to be our luxurious retirement home. Work called us to another location so now you may enjoy a really special place in the Oregon Cascades.

The Running Y Ranch was owned by the Disney family before it was purchased for a destination resort ranch. The Disney's enjoyed the 10,000 acre historic working cattle ranch because of the abundant wildlife that has been on this property for centuries. Deer will lay in the backyard and you will see geese, eagles and an occasional cougar. Don't worry - they are very timid!!

The Running Y marsh is an area where birds and water fowl are counted annually because of their number that fly through on the pacific fly-way. Bring your binoculars because birds are everywhere. There is even a pair of eagles that annually nest nearby.

In addition to the home, there is an apartment with a separate entrance that can be rented if your group is larger than will fit into the main home. The apartment has one bedroom, bath, kitchen, living and dining area plus a deck of its own. There is a double bed and in the living room a sofa bed and a large chair that houses a single bed, so it can sleep 5. The cost to rent the apartment is $75/day (additional cleaning fee of $40).

              • Crater Lake View on map

                Crater Lake National Park, the only national park in Oregon, contains one of the most remarkable natural features in the world. This feature, and the dominant element of the park, is the massive lake contained in the caldera formed by the collapse of the ancient volcano known as Mt. Mazama. The deep blue color of the lake, its depth, and setting in the caldera provide a unique and memorable sight for visitors to the park. Beecher (1957) has called Crater Lake one of the world's 3 greatest scenic features (along with the Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls).

              • Lower Klamath Basin Wildlife Refuge View on map

                Lower Klamath NWR, established by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908, was the first waterfowl refuge in the United States. It has a total area of 50,912 acres, of which 44,294 acres are in California and 6,618 acres are in Oregon. The refuge includes shallow freshwater marshes, open water, grassy uplands, and croplands that are intensively managed to provide feeding, resting, nesting, and brood rearing habitat for waterfowl and other water birds. A marked 10-mile auto tour allows visitors year round access for wildlife viewing. The Refuge also has a number of blinds for wildlife photographers.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We chose to build our home and live at the Running Y Ranch 14 years ago. It is the most beautiful mountain resort with golf course, abundant wildlife and some of the finest people we've ever met. We built this home to raise our family and plan to return when we retire. Right now we have been called away to another location, but look forward to returning as soon as we can! In the meantime, you can enjoy this very special place at our home!

              Why the Owner Chose Klamath Falls:
              Our favorite part of the Running Y is the amazing wildlife. This ranch was owned by the Disney family as a get-a-way before it was sold to become a resort ranch. The wildlife that has lived on this ranch undisturbed for 100's of years includes deer, coyote, golden and bald eagles as well as owls, woodpeckers, geese and even a wandering cougar. Guests are asked to respect the wildlife as deer and birds will often be within feet and are accustomed to their freedom.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This property has access to all the wilderness surroundings of the Cascade mountain range. The Pacific Crest Trail travels close to this location. Crater Lake, considered one of the natural wonders of America, is a little more than an hour away. In the winter, I have cross country skied from this house, down the ridge for a full morning or afternoon of skiing and return to the house. There is also a wonderful hill (hole #9) for sledding when snow is deep enough!
