About Jim & Stephanie Carpenter

We have lived in the Klamath Basin since 1991. We have been actively involved in natural resource issues, construction and guide and outfitting. Most recently we finalized a 7 year project, 'Creating A Sense of Arrival' with the remodel of a Visitor Center for the City of Klamath Falls to showcase our beautiful downtown, trail system and waterfront area. This 'One Stop' location offers visitors and locals a place to get information about our area from the Chamber of Commerce and Discover Klamath. Other tenants include Klamath County Economic Development, the Hombuilders Association, Watershed Partnership and Ducks Unlimited.

We are recipients of the City of Klamath Falls 'Green Pelican Award' and US Fish & Wildlife Wetlands Conservation Award.

Jim & Stephanie Carpenter purchased this house in 1996

Why Jim & Stephanie Carpenter chose Southern Oregon

We built our home in this very special location because it is on the waterfront and centrally located.

What makes this house unique

This property is unique due to it's up close and personal all season watchable bird and wildlife, which can be viewed from the comfort of your living room or outdoors on the deck. Boating, birding and fishing are a just a few steps away.

Downtown Klamath Falls is only 5 minutes and the airport a mere 15 minutes.

If you like to hike or bike the Link River Trailhead can be seen from the living room. This Trail takes you to historic Main Street where you can enjoy lunch and visit a museum.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view was beautiful, way better looking than my handwriting. We saw so many birds I think I should list them.

I saw a Great Egret, Double Crested Cormorant, Black Crowned Night Heron, American White Pelican, Stellars Jay, Clarks & Western Grebes, Clarks Nuthatcher, Osprey, Sparrows, Finches, Black Headed Grossbeak, Redwing Blackbird, and Morning Doves. Thanks for the warm kindness, hospitality, and information. I forgot to mention the Tree Swallows, Goldfinches, Gulls, Geese & Robins.

great time with beautiful setting to see the grebes rushing-dancing on water!

  • 5 of 5

It was so wonderful to have a comfortable home for bird watching...I found myself so involved with grebe watching, from early am to early pm, that I really didn't want to go anywhere else and I didn't the majority of my stay....I definitely will come again and hopefully plan a trip each year during this time or a little later to see the grebes, white pelicans, other waterfowl and the many songbirds I enjoyed on the trees next to the patio...there were so many species!! I recommend this spot for anyone who wants to watch the grebes mating during this time of the year as I observed over 45 pair demonstrating their beautiful ritual of mating, or at least looking for a mate!! This was on my "bucket list", watching the grebes, and this is the most perfect spot....thanks for a wonderful time....lynda steiner

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is built with all glass on the water side so you can really enjoy the view and all the birds on the water. The house was clean and in good repair and the owners were pleasant to communicate with.

Owner's Response: The Pelicans are in full force now & spending a lot of time here feeding before they head south foot the winter. The young Grebes are also busy feeding before leaving for warmer locations along the Pacific Flyway.

Just Beautiful!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you love to be out in nature, this the house for you. If you would rather stay indoors, this is the house for you.If you seek serenity, this is the house for you. If you want to take a 10 minute drive into town for great food and site seeing, this house is for you. I don't know who would not enjoy this home. First of all, home is clean and neat. The view is amazing. The lake is feet away from the house. The owners are very responsive if there is something you need or just can't figure out. They also contacted us via text almost daily just to make sure everything was OK, which was very nice of them. The house is large and very well decorated. Everything you need is supplied. We brought pots and pans expecting to find very few of these items. That was not necessary. If you love to fish, you need not travel any further than the backyard. The master bedroom has a great jet tub, so bring your bubble bath! And the bed in master bedroom is so comfortable, you will want to take it home! We have rented homes in the past and haven't always been pleased. This was a unique experience. The owners don't oversell the house at all. It is as described and you will find hidden gems too. We do not look forward to leaving today, but we are looking forward to coming back soon! We give this rental and the owners our highest recommendation!

Klamath Falls Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This waterfront house is a wonderful place to stay. It is well designed, well equipped for anyone's visit. The owners are easy to contact if needed. From this house we were able to see a wide variety of birds, saw more wildlife from the house than in our excursions around the area. Crater Lake is an easy drive from here. Northern California is close by with Tule Lake and Lava Beds National Monument. Klamath Falls is a short distance away, so restaurants, shopping are easily accessible. Even with the wildfires burning in the west, smoke was an issue, our stay was a very enjoyable.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It is very eclectic, which we enjoyed. Our morning coffee was spent watching the birds on the lake....as well as enjoying a glass of wine in the evening with a wonderful sunset. Very relaxing stay. STEPHANIE was always available for questions and concerns.
