Quelah 8! Terrific location! very quiet end unit townhouse with serene location facing the trees and lawn. Lay in bed and watch the stars from the upstairs master bedroom. Two decks, one off the dining room and one off the master bedroom upstairs. All of the comfortable amenities to make your stay so enjoyable. The owners take great pride in the condition of their condo and it shows.
Just a few short steps to the private pool, wading pool, hot tub and tennis courts (all for just the Quelah condos). You don't need to get in the car and drive to the public pool. Fishing is within walking distance to the Deschutes and so are restaurants, the Sunriver Lodge, the marina for rafting and canoeing and the Nature Center for the children. For the avid fishermen, Fall River and Crane Prairie are just a short drive. Fishing guides & rafting trips are available at the mall.
Mt. Bachelor is close for the skiers and snow boarders. Snow mobiles are rented in nearby LaPine - a 15 minute drive. The condo has lots of room to store all of your ski equipment. One can go cross country skiing by going right outside the condo. The owners keep lots of wood in the storage area for cozy fires all year round.

Why cathy jo lindquist chose Sunriver
We bought this property because we found that year after year we kept coming back to Sunriver and to Quelah. Once we discovered the Quelah condos we never rented anywhere else. Our children grew up at Quelah-summer after summer. Having our own pool was the best. It was so much better than going to a pool where there are lots of people and no where to sit. Nap time was never a problem because one of us could walk back to the condo with the baby and the older one could stay back at the pool with the other parent. It was just so easy with young children.
What makes this Condo unique
The grass in front is a real bonus. Fun for playing catch, tossing a football, playing with young children. Being far away from the road is another bonus. Very quiet location!

Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect for easy access to biking paths. Easy drive to Mt. Bachelor. Good restaurants nearby. Unit itself was adequate for us 4, but no TV, and no HDMI cable to hook up to laptop. Bedroom behind kitchen gets loud, on/off noise all night long from heater fan located behind bed. Upstairs two rooms fine, but could have used one additional blanket for king bed. Despite these negatives, we would choose this again due to the excellent location.
We have 4 TVs. One in the living room and one in each bedroom. We have extra blankets in the bottom drawer of the chest of drawers in each bedroom. This guest must have missed them.
Great condo for relaxing or needing a break!
We needed a break after a long and busy summer and we got it. The condo is within walking distance to everything. We rode bikes, too long walks, read books, went in the hot tub and slept in late every morning. We barbecued every night and even one morning. Their is nothing like a breakfast of steak and eggs. It's an end unit which makes it very quiet.
There were several issues that were substandard.
This condo is in need of updating but beyond that there were several items that need attention and a couple of them were safety concerns.
We became aware of a rodent problem that obviously by the number of mouse droppings had been an issue for some time. Why this issue wasn't discovered by the cleaning agency is a mystery. I contacted the owner and she sent a maintanence man over to set some traps.
The outside barbecue was a definite safety concern. The barbecue was balanced on the bottom legs with an old wood axe handle! The heat shield was completely rusted out on one end and resting on the burners causing the flames to rise up onto the grill thus burning your food but more disturbing possibly burning e person at the grill. There was a note taped the barbecue stating the igniter wasn't working (stating they were "sorry" for this inconvience) and no matches or hand held igniter available. Why then wasn't it repaired? This barbecue was old and should have been thrown away a long time ago!
We emailed the owner after reading the latest review submitted before our arrival about the condition of the beds. The owner assured us the beds were fine as they themselves had recently slept on them and found nothing to be concerned about. The beds in two of the bedrooms were terribly uncomfortable. The owner had placed an inexpensive foam pad on them but it wasn't enough to compensate for such an inexpensive mattress. Looking at the mattress it appeared fairly new but with very little padding over the springs. This made sleeping difficult and uncomfortable. We were glad to leave!
We have our unit rented back to back through the summer. If a tenant writes something on a bbq, we will never know it until we come ourselves at the end of the summer. We always ask that they let us know if there is anything we can do to make our guests more comfortable okon their next visit. The maajority of our guests haved been coming for years.. One of our previous renters booked 3 weeks next summer. Evidently the bed for him is not an issue.
Great condo in Sunriver!
This was our fifth year coming to Sunriver and our second year staying at this Quelah condo. Our family loves it here and this condo is very family friendly! Close to pool and has great grassy area off back deck for kids to play. As with most condos in the area, this unit is older, but is kept up well. Kitchen nicely stocked! No AC, but the owners provide some fans and it cools down nicely at night. Only negative comment on the condo was the upstairs king mattress....uncomfortable and needs improved, could feel bed springs at some parts of mattress, but rest of rooms were great! Kids love having their "own room" upstairs in the bunk room and sleeps up to 3 kids comfortably. Owner is extremely nice and easy to work with. We had issue getting into unit when we arrived and she was very apologetic and worked with us to resolve the issue. 5 stars all the way for this condo! We love this place and love the location in Sunriver. Will be back!!
Thank you Kristin for the great review!
We will definitely replace the king mattress at the end of this summer season. Thank you for booking again for next year. You will have a new mattress next time!

Wonderful Vacation Condo
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this lovely condo at Sunriver. We have been here several times and always enjoy coming to a place where we can relax and take advantage of what Sunriver has to offer. We enjoy the views at the condo and like to get out walk around the area, horse back riding and the pool. Of course we also enjoy the quietness of the condo to read. I would recommend this condo to anyone who wants to stay in a very nice area of Oregon.
Thank so much for such a nice review. We always look forward to your stays in our condo. Knowing how much you love it means a lot to us.
Another perfect stay at Quelah #8!
We stayed here for almost a week over the Labor Day holiday and have a perfect family getaway. We traveled with one other family and we all fit comfortably. The 4 small kids shared the bunk room and they were so happy that there was a TV in the room so they could watch a cartoon from time to time in "their room"! Our kids loved the proximity of Quelah to the nature center! We went down to the nature center and observatory several times and found great activities for kids! Our kids also loved to ride their bikes to the horse stables, marina, the mall and lodge. The lodge had a lot going on for families. They had weekend concerts on the grass and lawn games that we all enjoyed. There was SO much to do in Sunriver.. even with a week we couldn't get to it all!
Now about Quelah... Quelah is really the perfect location for families. You have your own PRIVATE pool and hot tub only for Quelah guests so it is never crowded! There are tennis courts, a big nice lawn for running around and perfect location right off circle 3's bike path.
This unit is CLEAN and well-stocked. The beds are comfortable. The TV's are nice. The kitchen has every possible utensil or dish you could need and then some. There are also 4 adult bikes that we used during our stay and were in great shape. The owners have always been great to work with and respond in a quick and timely manner. We will definitely be returning again this winter so we can enjoy the winter activities. Thank you!
