About Joyce Towle

We are a family of 13 children who built this home as a place to get together after our mom died. We built it to accommodate large, extended family/groups like we are. Living space encourages great food, conversation and togetherness. Accommodates generation age groups very well!

Joyce Towle purchased this house in 1996

Why Joyce Towle chose Central Oregon

We love the large lots, high quality, low key lifestyle of Black Butte Ranch over the busy-ness and congestion of other resorts. There's lots to do here for everyone in a beautiful, tranquil setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We reserved this home for 3 couples. Everything was well stocked. We really enjoyed your home and the obvious thought and effort you put into it to make it comfortable. We loved the in-room vanities. Great way for individual couples to have addtional privacy...and they keep the 4 bathrooms from becomming a bottleneck. We hope to be back.

Beautiful, Light-filled Home

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family loved this bright, beautiful home with its peaceful views of the trees outside. The kitchen was large and well-stocked and the family room was large and yet cozy too. Having a bathroom in each bedroom was absolutely wonderful! That's a rare find for vacation homes. We also appreciated the two dining tables, which we filled up completely at meals and could also use for puzzles and crafts. The house seems to be on the "outskirts" of Black Butte Ranch, so we enjoyed the extra quiet and the beautiful mountain view out the front door. Only suggestions would be a coat rack for the downstairs hallway (all our snow coats & gear needed a home!) and a little more lighting for the living room (it got dark early during our Christmas visit and we could have used a bit more light). Wonderful vacation getaway that will meet all your needs and exceed all your expectations. The owner is very helpful and quick to respond to all questions.

Terrific layout for our extended family.

  • 5 of 5

The spacious, bright great room in this home made for easy family time with all age groups. Awesome kitchen with new appliances. LOVED the sink/vanity set ups in 3 bedrooms so the 4 bathrooms were not tied up. What a great idea!! Dad's loved the horseshoe pits in the yard. Fun watching the golfers go by. We WILL book this home again. Owner response to our questions was very quick.

Great time at Black Butte

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been coming to Black Butte for 30 some years! This is the first time at this house, however, and it met our needs perfectly. The kitchen was well stocked and plenty of dishes, silverware and space for our group. The guys enjoyed the horse shoe pits, and we had lots of room for everyone at the table, plus using the small round table for the puzzles we all like to do while there. Had a nice easy walk around Fiddleneck and Bracken, and also not far to the lodge, meadow, Paulina Springs, etc. The owner was great to work with. This house will be on our list for next year!

Great for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This has the nicest common area of just about any home we've stayed at on the Ranch. The construction is so well done that the downstairs bedrooms are quiet even when people are walking around upstairs. Love the set up for badminton/volleyball and glad that we brought racquets/birdies - I didn't see any in the garage. Plenty of place to park cars and the deck easily accommodates a large group. Great to work with the owners as well. Thank you!!!

Terrific vacation home for any size group

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five adults and there was plenty of everything, esp space. This spot would work very well for a group of even 10 adults; lots of bdrms w/ bathrooms incl or adjoining. Wonderful kitchen with plenty of space and tons of cooking and eating utensils. We are looking forward to our next visit....
