Brightwood house description

BOULDER CREEK RETREATS is a wonderful place to come & spend time with your family, friends or just the '2 of you' :) It has recently been remodeled & furnished, practically everything is NEW!!! Our spacious, comfortable home sleeps 6 people, has three bedrooms, two baths, a very relaxing living room, separate dining area, large kitchen (purposely oversupplied), and an extra Bonus room upstairs - it's great for those who want to watch something different, play games, read a book quietly, work on a puzzle or take a simple nap. PRIVACY ? NOT A PROBLEM, the property reclines on one acre, high up in the mountains, surrounded by an outstanding view of the Cascade Mountain range, full of greenery, trees and wildlife. At times, you can listen to our seasonal creek as it runs by.

This home truly has a 'Welcoming Way' of its own. As you enter through its French doors, it feels like you will want to stay FOREVER. *We always have it ready for you* Day or night, the lighting is perfect, the stereo is on softly or the TV, whichever you prefer and your greeted with the warmth of a fire. Special requests are encouraged & if it's in our power, we will do it!

Before I begin the verbal tour of this awesome home. I must say the wrap around decks add quite the tone for your excursion. They allow you to view a variety of panoramic views, from sun rays peeking through the forest, to open landscaping with decorative trees, lawn and a quaint creek rolling by, to the towering mountains above. The front part of the porch area is covered, so no matter what the weather, guess what, we have you covered. (No pun intended) So go ahead and get that latte, have a little sip and look out and say to yourself 'WOW, this is unbelievable!' The deck includes an 6 man Hot Tub with lounging chairs all around, plus there is a BBQ gas grill just in case :)

Main Floor:
*Living Room has very substantial viewing windows and the 3 couches accommodate your ease of enjoying the life of the forest. The home fires from the wood stove provide an appealing atmosphere and we aim to provide as much wood as it takes to keep that happening. DSL Internet works day & night, as long as you can keep your eyes open! We also wall mounted the 40' Satellite TV so everyone could see! The 100 channel choices will make it interesting for those TV controllers? if you know what I mean :) But that's OK because we have more than one TV. There is a DVD / VHS player with lots of Free VHS movies to watch and if you want to unplug, wind down and just be still for awhile, turn on the compact CD Stereo player with your favorite music or the AM/FM.

*Kitchen is off of the Living Room for easy access. Get my point :) Those little late night snacks are calling! We know from experience that the kitchen area is large enough for 2 cooks to wheel away at their gourmet meals. It is well supplied with kitchenware and cookware including coffee, tea and customary spices, just in case they were left behind. For your convenience there is a storage shelves for all your non-refrigerated items.

*Laundry Room is next to the kitchen with washer, dryer and hamper. So if you get dirty, don't worry. There are windows viewing the front lawn,foliage and decorative trees with a door leading outside to the side yard and creek.

*Bathroom is off of living & dining room areas next to the master bedroom, very convenient. It is very well lit for those morning make overs and included are toiletries, quality thick towels of various sizes and of course a tub & shower combo.

*Dining Room is perfect for 6 people, lots of elbow room! The dining table is quite unusual, it has a glass table top with marble stands. You will be sure to enjoy each other, as you share in the goodies prepared for you. The window view is of the peaceful forest, with the sun rays glimmering through,as only they can.

*Master Bedroom is a rather substantial suite off with a King size ultra-comfortable bed, the finest linen, heating blanket for those really cold nights and a warm comforter. Also furnished with chests of drawers, night stand with good lighting - just for that novel you've been meaning to finish & an oversized closet, trust me, there will be room. You do have accessibility to a semi-private deck that sits around the corner from the spa. The view is exquisite! The country side 'shows off' with the majestic mountains as its back drop.

*Bonus Room has a double size Futon, pillows and throw blanket to watch the 27' TV placed in cabinet with drawers for clothing. A DVD-VHS player sits above. Come on 'Lets play' There's free VHS movies from a selection of 105, an abundant supply of adult & children's games, plus puzzles galore.

*2nd Bedroom is exactly like the master bedroom, same furnishings, except it has Queen size bed instead.

*Bathroom is set between the bedrooms. Fantastic lighting with a sky light. Plenty of toiletries & towels. It has a nice shower.

*3rd Bedroom has day bed with trundle and a night stand.

'All in All' it's a short drive to ski resorts, adventure park, hiking trails, the rivers, restaurants, shopping and evening entertainment.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: My husband & I have lived here for over 21 years and have enjoyed the seasonal changing views, the peace and quiet, the company of our furry friends and the small, quaint Mt. Hood community with all of its unending activities. We love spending time with our children and especially those cute grandkids! Our friends are very important to us, so we have a lot going on. Our favorite things to do are read, keep physically fit, go for hikes, do some fishing & boating along with swimming.

                  Why the Owner Chose Brightwood:
                  We choose to move here because of the beauty that captivates us when we are up in the Cascade Mountains. The small local communities and all of its variety is definitely a plus and everything is easily accessible. There is never a dull moment and so many fun things to do. When we want some 'R & R' its right here too!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The warm, cozy feeling and the lay out of the home which allows for easy access and communicating. We enjoy the grounds, there are lots of places for outdoor funnin' and a place for the kids to romp. The area where the Hot Tub sits gives you privacy even when others are around. The best part is the occasional Elk or Deer that roam by
