"My wife and I celebrated our 50th anniversary here with our family - our son and daughter, their spouses and 4, 6 & 12 year old boys, and our niece and her husband. The eleven of us had room to spare in this home.
The house is 5,000 sq feet; 6 bedrooms; 4 bathrooms; very open concept; kind of a ski lodge decor. There are three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs, 1 bedroom and full bath on the main floor, and 2 bedrooms and full bath on the lower floor.
The home is very accurately portrayed in the VRBO description. The house is very well equipped with about every kitchen appliance you'd want. The kitchen appliances, washer and dryer are in good condition and operate well. The kitchen is spacious and laid out to operate well with a few cooks working on meal prep. It has a large 6 burner stove with a separate griddle and double oven. There are two refrigerators in the kithara, which is great. There are many entertainment devices located all over the home, along with DVDs, books, and games. There is a small game area off the 23' x 23' great room, and a very large loft area with game tables and comfortable seating upstairs. The house is open bright and airy.
The WiFi worked "adequately". The cell service on the black Butte area is "okay", and seems to slightly favor Verizon over ATT.
There is a huge deck with hot tub off the kitchen; meal seating for 10, and lots of casual chairs; backs up to natural rock wall on 1 side. There are several other decks and balconies. Finding a quiet space, even with a large group, is easy. The house sits at the end of a cul de sac off of a dead end street. So you can let the kids run with our traffic worries. No traffic sounds.
The house was spotless when we checked in. All furniture, bedding, sheets and towels were of good quality and in good condition. Finally, Howell's Realty Group was very, very good to work with, before and during our stay.
If you've decided on Black Butte Ranch for your vacation, and you have need for a 6 bedroom home, we could not recommend this house more highly."
