Sisters house description
We need to disclose that this property is on the market to be sold. There may be occasion when our real estate agent must make an appointment with renter to show the property during their date of stay. Also, a sale of property means that the rental reservation will not be able to be honored for more than 6 weeks, if a reservation is made with longer than 6 weeks advance notice a full refund of reservation fee will be made to renter if sale forces rental reservation to be withdrawn.
A retreat for friends, relatives and visitors as well as for us that need or like to get away from it all. The Sisters area is a Majestic creation of God, not a distraction from Him. The Tollgate location was established in the 1840's and today it continues a country western theme. At 3300' snow is common in the winter months and summer is awesome with blue sky in the morning and stars to slumber under at night.
There are so many adventures and majestic sites to relish. Fly fishing on the Metolius River, water skiing and lake swimming on Suttle Lake, Scotts lake or a bit further Billy Chinook reservoir. Camp Sherman a small frontier outpost where you can actually watch the Chinook and Steelhead swim past the viewing spots. Wizard Falls Hatchery, Three Creeks Lake, the Deschutes River, rafting, canoeing and just enjoying the sites.
Golf courses - a dozen within 25 miles - locally, Black Butte and Aspen Lakes. Mountain, trail and path biking with the provided bike assortment at the vacation home or if needed a bicycle rental in Sisters. Other outside toys for the kids are available too, like some snow sleds or even a tottler bike trailer.
Shopping, spa, fitness center, art & sculpture galleries, dining from the quick & simple McDonalds, Subway, Pizza, to the family relaxed Bronco Billies or Gallery, to the fine dining you may prefer. Ready for entertainment international style? Starry Nights sponsors the likes of the famous such as Amy Grant (different star each year) to the local talent fare. Almost every weekend there is an excellent city sponsored activity; classic car exhibits, Gem and rock exhibit, Art Faire, Nationally renown Quilt week in July, Music festival in the fall and many more in between. The Central Oregon High Desert museum is a must visit and not too far from your home away from home is the impressive Dee Wright Observatory. Churches, no need to miss Sunday service as there is your denomination (or close enough) represented in Sisters.
The Tollgate community has its own community hall, swimming pool in summer, tennis and basketball courts. On premises; lay in the hammock, toss the horse shoes, read a book, watch the wildlife all outside your window. Quiet, there comes a doe and her two fawns - whoa a buck over there. The squirrel down the tree to take some bird seed you just put out in the feeders. For the kids - a horse tire swing and many outside and inside toys. I high chair is available.
Your vacation home is on a 3/4 acre lot which backs against the beautiful Deschutes National forest for those nice forest walks. The neighbors are very hospitable yet not intrusive. That early morning and or evening walk is calling you to unwind some more.
The vacation home sleeps up to 8 easily by converting the family room into a bedroom. Most bedrooms has its own TV. All amenities are for your use, from kitchen ware to linens to towels to... does anyone like putting together puzzles or play with the kids with toy box items or videos provided?
The home has some nice artwork by G Harvey on display. A deck with gas bar b que and two picnic tables and deck table/chairs are provided for your outside picnic lunch/dinner time - bring on the steak and burgers. No telephone so make sure you bring your cell phone. It is a NON Smoking residence. Welcome and Exit instructions list is available.
This is our home away from home, we hope you will enjoy it as we do. Please take care of it as your own, we do Not charge cleaning fees for 3 day stay or more except for some exceptional situations, we believe you will leave it organized.

Beautiful and relaxing
Beautiful and relaxing
This was a perfect location to get away. The house is in a quiet neighborhood where large properties separate homes. The house was comfortable and the location was a great spot to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and spend a peaceful weekend.

The house was spacious, very clean and kitchen well stocked. We spent most of our time outside in the summer weather, and the location is convenient to town and many activities. The neighborhood was quiet, and provided safe pathways for nightwalks. There were many "toy" amenities for kids of all ages, including bicycles. Although the furniture is dated, the beds were all comfortable, and spaced such that some can sleep while the night owls stayed up. The house stayed cool with the window coverings and fans on hot July days. Back deck was nice for dining and large gas grill great for BBQ. We recommend swimming in Scout Lake, and a day trip up to 6500 ft Three Creeks Lake for the alpine experience. Bring bug spray!

It was the perfect family get-away (and we happened to have a 5-star day skiing Hoodoo on Dec. 26th - an inexpensive, family-friendly mountain that has skiing from 9-9 daily!) The property is perfectly located in a lovely setting and the house has room to spare - easy to find your own "space" for book reading or TV viewing without interrupting others who might be hanging out near the Franklin wood stove or kitchen area. The beds are almost too comfortable! and the kitchen is one of the best-stocked I've enjoyed. If I forgot say vanilla or baking powder, I found it here! That was such a bonus. It was a comfortable stay, homey and holy for all of us. It was a wonderful Christmas.

About the owner: Bonny and Ron were married in 1970. We are trekking thru this life together and look forward to the activity, opportunity and challenges set forth. We have two fine children and 4 fantastic grand kids and we are so thankful that they all live close to us. We are blessed by our Maker and acknowledge Him through our thanks and possessions. We recognize this home is a privilege to have and share and do not take it for granted as there are so many in need around the world. We promote the use of this home as a retreat and sanctuary of rest, a haven or port, to return to after the great adventures our guest may take. Welcome and Enjoy the vacation area and we hope you can feel this is your home away from home if only a short time at least. We encourage you to contact us soon.
Why the Owner Chose Sisters:
We chose this location after much searching and thought. We got it to escape reality and yes to have a retreat to do what we want not what has to be done. A place of peace yet a place of adventure and it is by chose to not know what is in store for the day. Western town, yet within 20 miles of sites and scenes of the 80000 Bend population and its wares. Snow, sun, clear nights and yes a few rainy days, but never gloomy. We Love it, everyone that has spent time says the same. We hope you will love it to and recommend it to your friends and relatives.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unique benefit of staying at this vacation home - it is yours for a few days or a few weeks - relax, relax, you don't have to do it all - no pressing plans that can't be postponed, you need to relax. Activities are unlimited not the big city rush but the calm type. Cost, we think it is more than competitive especially when you consider all the amenities of our vacation home and by chance if you come with a second family, then its extra affordable, Enjoy (incidentally, it is a great place just for the two of you too, rekindle those times you have missed and ENJOY). We don't ask for a cleaning fee if rented more than 3 days because we trust our visitors are honorable and trustworthy, you will respect and leave it in a reasonable condition. This means picked up, a bit organized and clean the obvious normal leftovers, change the bed linens, clean the kitchen. The rest will be taken care of. ENJOY.
