House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 14)
This large house has 2,846 square feet with a high cathedral ceiling of more than 20 feet. The five spacious bedrooms and and loft plus three full baths is comfortable for up to 14 people.
To clear up why the house number is 3, but the legal description is 17944. The developer of Sunriver was not aware of futre GPS technology, but even if he was, he might have decided to make the house numbers the same as the subdivision parcel numbers because Sunriver was anticipated to be a vacation rental resort, and single and double digit house numbers would be easier for renters to use.
The setting is a half acre heavily treed lot adjoining a 7+ acre greenbelt with a forest covered lava featured ridge which provides privacy and lends to a feeling of being in a large forest.
The landscaping has been left in a natural state, but the owner performs the necessary cleanup to prevent excessive growth of vegetation which could become a fire hazard.
The house is three stories with the garage, laundry room, three bedrooms and two full baths and the hot tub deck on the first level. The living room, dining room and kitchen forming a great room, as well as an owner's room/ office, two more bedrooms, a full bath and the main deck with barbeque are on the second level. The loft (third level) includes ping pong area and sitting/ reading area. Please call or email for more information.
The house is fully airconditioned, We added a new fully ducted system with the most recent high technology in Noverber 2017.
There are several bicycles in the garage for the use of all renters. Sunriver has about 35 miles of ten feet wide paved bicycle/walking trails that course through all the neighborhoods, to the Village Mall, the golf courses, along the Deshutes and Sun Rivers and circle Fort Rock Park which is behind the house. Children under 17 are required to use helmets while bicycling so remember to bring them.
Kids and adults will find the lava features and large pine trees on the hill to the rear of the house to be exciting to climb around on. Most families who have stayed here find this green belt to be a primary draw for their families as everything is so close to the house and within 'calling distance'. During the winter kids sled, snowboard and ski for short distances down this hill. The soccer fields, kids playground with lots of well maintained equipment, basketball courts, horseshoes, tennis and pickleball courts are all located just beyond the hill.
The size of the lot, location of the house 125 feet back from the road, and the forested hill to the rear also provide a significant amount of privacy.

About John Kloster
Nancy and I, John, have five kids, and soon to have eleven grandchildren. Our kids grew up with this house and hope to have their kids develop cherished memories of their own. We are retired and come to Sunriver whenever possible.
John Kloster purchased this House in 1989
Why John Kloster chose Sunriver
We chose to purchase a property in Sunriver because it was a contrast to the city living in which we managed our professions and raised our family. Our extended family and many of our friends' families have also enjoyed all the activities offered in and around Sunriver. We have always been oriented toward snow sports in the winter and hiking, climbing, fishing, boating, golf, tennis and pickleball in the summer. Prior to our purchase we rented homes in Sunriver, both during the winter and summer, and found that we wanted to spend as much time as we could here. We had bicycled through all the neighborhoods and found that this house on a large lot on Shamrock Lane which also backed up to north side of Fort Rock Park and large green belt (a hill covered with pine trees and featuring a ridge of lava formations) offered privacy as well as opportunities for the family to use all the park facilities and still be within a short distance for monitoring many of the activities from the comfort of the deck.
What makes this House unique
What I said in the previous section on why we purchased the property is very applicable to why we feel our home offers a very unique vacation experience. The most outstanding feature of the house itself for most families is the great room layout of the living room, dining room and kitchen. In fact the loft above the kitchen and dining room look out over the living room, and the dormitory bedroom which is often the center for kid activities is observable from the kitchen and the landing at the top of the stairs.

GREAT FOR GOLF GROUPS/FAMILIES
My golf group of 10-11 adults has stayed here two consecutive years and been very pleased. The house was ready for us on both occasions, spotlessly clean, fully equipped and logically organized. The owner is easy to work with, is not a nervous Nelly, and takes pride in this, his family’s longtime vacation home. I recommend this home without any qualms. If you want a palace, a castle or exotic accommodations, look elsewhere. But if you want a comfortable, spacious All American vacation home, this is it.
Great place to stay with large families
We had 4 families stay here with 7 kids and it accommodated us comfortably. The location is great. Very close to the park and a short bike ride to sharc. The climbing rocks in the back were perfect for the kids while the adults could sit on the large deck and play games while still being able to keep a close watch on the kids. John, the owner, was very easy to get in touch with and gave us many tips on staying at his vacation home. Would definitely stay here in the future.
Lots of space - Great location
The house is spacious and handled our group of eleven. Lots of kitchen cooking utensils.
Great location. However, the owner could do some TLC. The house needs screens on the windows so that you can ventilate better, no AC. No kitchen towels, no hairdryers, no shampoo,
minimum soap and Toilet tissue for 11 people. The carpet on the stairs and living room should be replaced. When we arrived the carpet had been cleaned but it took 2 days for the damp smell of an old dirty carpet to dissipate. It's an ok property but expensive for what it is. The loft was great for the teenagers. Location is five stars.
Spring break fun
We have a large family and we get together every spring, this house has something for everyone. Our kids all loved how close we were to the park. I like to give honest review so guests know what to expect, I can't think of anything negative to say. Everything was clean and we were all very comfortable. The homeowner was very easy to get in touch with when I had questions. Thank you for a great time.
Best overall experience we've had in Sunriver
Location is great, owner very helpful and house newly remodeled and fantastic.
The best Sunriver location
Just arrived and am delighted by this house! Can't believe that there was negative review about the place. It's well decorated with everything that we wanted. It feels wonderfully private on a large wooded lot right next to Fort Rock park. Lots of room and lots of light. You will love this place.
Owner provides SHARC (Sunriver Homeowner Acauatic and Recreation Center) passes to the pools, tennis and pickleball courts, marina boat launch as well the new Sunriver Homeowner's Aquatic and Recreation Center which offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, water slides, simulated river for floating, winter sledding hill and many more activities. Google SHARC to get a complete rundown on facilities and activities. Our property is unique in the Sunriver market as the lot is quite large and abuts the only public park in Sunriver, Fort Rock Park, and 200 feet from the main tennis courts. The tree covered ridge behind the house provides a very private environment for family or entertaining. The large second floor (main floor) deck brings you up into the trees providing a good observation area for wildlife that wander through the trees every day when dry. There are a number of large lava features along the top of this ridge which interest kids, but adults enjoy exploring when their kids come back delighted with the discovery. My kids who grew up playing there winter and summer are talking about their young kids becoming old enough to enjoy many of the same activities that captured their parents' interest. The play fields, courts or all kinds, the bicycle path and the youngster oriented playground are just beyond the ridge directly behind the house.
