About Craig

I've been a seafood broker at my own one man company, Carlson Seafood in Portland, OR. We also did some real estate investing leading to four Vacation rentals.

We love Sunriver and Central Oregon with all it has to offer. Our summers are usually spent in Bend in a tiny downtown house. We like to be handy for anything that comes up at our Sunriver houses. We take pride in our houses.

Why Craig chose Central Oregon

This is one of the most convenient locations in Sunriver. Short walk to SHARC, two minutes to the Sunriver Village. Hugh lots (16,000 sq. ft.) with lots of common ground. Grocery store is also a two minute walk. Forgot the salsa for the tacos? 'Back in five minutes with what you need. We have two houses on Backwoods Lane because of the location, we think it's the best. It doesn't show on the map but Backwoods is a circular lane with 12 houses. Huge island in the middle for a safe controlled play area. Frisbee golf, perfect.

Great for noise control. Living area on one end, bedrooms on the other. No noisy upstairs open lofts. Great for early risers and night owls too.

Fantastic Week at #11 Backwoods!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our Family of 14 stayed at #11 Backwoods, Sunriver from July 2 - 9, 2016. What a great home and very comfortable for a large family. I was concerned that we might not fit in the house, but not the case at all.

The location close to the Sunriver Market Place was exceptional. A quick walk and you are there.

The Deck and Patio are huge and we had all of our dinners on the Deck. Fantastic!

The Owners are very accommodating. Thank you.

I think there were 23 bikes.

This home is very well stocked and ready for your vacation. Enjoyed our week.

Thank you so much. We will be back.

Home away from home (but better!)

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of enjoying Backwoods 11 over spring break and we all had an AMAZING time! Guests in attendance ranged from 9 months - 70 years old!!!! The kids loved the game room and it was such a treat to have arcade games and pinball to play. It would take me for ever to list everything that was wonderful about this house, but I'll name a few: I like certain types of pans when I cook and the kitchen was so well stocked that I ended up leaving a box of things from my own personal kitchen in the car. The jukebox was so fun, I never anticipated the fun and dancing it would bring. All of the beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens and towels for everyone! The best part was the selection of bikes, all in great shape, comfortable and ready to ride. They were perfect to hop on and head over to the SHARC with the passes provided. We have been to Sunriver several times and this was by far the best house we've stayed in with the best location! I highly recommend this rental to everyone! Lastly the owners were fantastic, quick to respond to questions and a joy to work with. Thank you Backwoods 11, we hope to be back soon!

Our large group found this house to be a perfect fit, we had 4 Couples in our group - Some with children and some without. There was plenty room for everyone and Each bedroom having it's own full bathroom was a huge plus. The place was very clean, fully equipped with Towel/Linens and Cooking for our large group meals was easily done because they had so much cookware,utensils,etc readily available for us to do so. The Living Room was spacious enough for everyone to be comfortable and we thought the Rec Room with all the Video Games and Pinball was awesome. I cant see myself staying anywhere else from now on when visiting Sunriver, thanks!!

our best rental in sunriver

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 5 children had the best week in sunriver since renting homes back on the 80's. Our adult children all agreed that this home had everything we needed plus an amazing location! We felt secluded but were only a 5 minute walk to the village. We took advantage of the SHARC everyday, went rafting down the deschutes from the marina, visited the observatory one night and the kids went horseback riding. Biking on the cul de sac was a favorite of the kids.they even made friends with other kids. No one wanted the week to end. Thanks Craig for having the best supplied home of our vrbo rentals and especially the bikes for everyone,

Best House In Sunriver

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Backwoods 11 many times since the 1990s. It is by far our favorite place to stay in Sunriver. The location of this home is RIGHT by the mall, so you can literally walk over in about 3 minutes (280 steps!) yet it has always been very quiet and restful there. The home is exceptionally clean and there is room for everyone to spread out. There are six bedrooms (one is the game room) so everyone can have their own space and privacy. Each bed was comfortable too...everyone in our party slept great! Also, this home has SEVEN bathrooms (five of the bedrooms have their own private bath!) so you will never have to wait! I have never seen a home so well-stocked as Backwoods 11. The kitchen has every spice you need, sugar, flour, olive oil, and cooking spray. There are tons of baking dishes, trays, and cooking utensils. You can cook a gourmet meal here and have EVERYTHING you need! The owner has always gone the extra mile and made sure you are set to go with extra paper towels, toilet tissue, dishwashing and laundry supplies, barbecue supplies, the list goes on and on. They have thought of everything! There are tons of bikes for kids and adults too. We had so much fun exploring Sunriver and riding the miles and miles of bike paths. There are 8 SHARC passes. We went tubing during our stay....we highly recommend it! The lazy river swim area was open when we stayed but we didn't go during our week there but it looked fun though! The internet worked great too and we were able to stream movies from Netflix through our own account. We watched the NCAA tournament on the huge flat screen TV in the living room (there are several other TVs in the home so everyone can watch what they want) and there is large collection of DVDs there for you to choose from. I almost forgot to mention the game room. Your kids will LOVE it! There is a pinball machine and several other arcade machines. One of them has all those classic arcade games from the 80s and 90s--we had a blast playing them. There is also a jukebox in the living room for your listening pleasure! I just cannot recommend this home highly enough. You will LOVE staying here and will come back year after year like we have. will love their other rental, Backwoods 4. It is amazing too!! We have stayed there numerous times and it is every bit as good as Backwoods 11. You will love either home!
