About the property

Snow Goose Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This tastefully decorated cottage is built of imported Canadian cedar and is comfortable and cozy in any season. The peaceful location is ideal, as the property backs up to Deschutes County Wilderness. As a result you may well experience the local wildlife--deer, elk, grouse, etc--wandering through at their leisure! Also, the Deschutes River is a short walk (300 yds) behind the house and to the left.

The real river-rock fireplace and vaulted cedar-lined ceilings give the cottage a distinct 'mountain home' feel. With one master suite upstairs and one down, it is the perfect getaway for those who desire to relax in peaceful surroundings with the extra spaciousness that 1,800 sq ft offers. For those with the need do a bit of 'work' while on vacation, dedicated work space and WiFi is provided, along with an HP printer/copier/scanner.

Located close to the bustling resort communities of Sunriver and Crosswater, all amenities are within a short 10 min drive (grocery store, fine restaurants, shopping etc) but without the hectic crowds and accompanying noise. Renown Crosswater Golf course is also just 5 minutes away.

Activities available at Sunriver include bicycling, canoeing, horseback riding, fishing or golfing. And lovely Bend, with its many fine restaurants and major shopping malls, is only 20 minutes away.

Whether it be for a romantic getaway (GREAT for couples) or a family get together, why settle for a cramped condo with half the square footage...stay with us!

Keywords: Cozy Cottage, relaxing, peaceful, QUIETUDE :)

About Regan

We are big fans of Central Oregon and all that it has to offer: a dry climate, four distinct seasons and outdoor activities galore.

As we live overseas, spending time at Snow Goose Cottage (our 'home away from home') is much-anticipated each time we visit.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Regan purchased this cottage in 2006

What makes this cottage unique

Peace, tranquility, space...yet close to all the amenities of Sunriver Resort without the crowds. In addition to several lovely lakes within a few minutes' drive, the Big Deschutes river is just a short five minute walk away. Central Oregon is lovely--in all four seasons!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were 2 couples partaking in the many outdoor activities in the area (as well as the eclipse). With a well-stocked kitchen we were able to cook after a day’s adventures and relax together. We had plenty of space to not get in each other’s way and privacy as each bedroom had it' s own bathroom. We enjoyed morning coffee watching the deer play in the backyard and happy hours on the back porch. The peaceful quiet street, comfortable beds and cool nights made sleeping easy. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time there, we did not want to leave!

Wonderful, clean, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Close to trails and the river. The home had everything you need to create meals and offer comfort. We had our Rat Terrier with us and she loved the open spaces.

Best Holiday Family vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

and a big contributing factor was the way this home was totally set up like home. We felt like we were guests of the owners, not a vacation renter. We were there from Christmas through New Years, and enjoyed all the outdoor activities this area has to offer, but the best part was when day was done, we felt like we went home! As we were without a home of our own this year, this getaway filled that empty space. We look forward to a return visit.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and infant son and I stayed at Snow Goose Cottage this past weekend and had such a wonderful time that we can't wait to go back. We loved the escape from the city and the quiet surroundings, but also the fact that it was a relatively short trip to Sunriver or Bend for food, shopping, etc. The National Forest right next to the home was ideal for walks with our dogs to the nearby river, and next time we'll be prepared for biking and running on the glorious trails. We have never rented a home so well-equipped. In fact, we brought our bag of 'usuals' that we throw in when renting a house; oil, some spices, and a few other dry goods, plus the implements we know we want, and never had to open it up! There was hot cocoa and popcorn, teas and a good coffee maker, and plenty of logs for a nightly fire. The owners were very accommodating and genuinely wanted to be sure we had a good experience. We highly recommend this home, and we will be back!

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My significant other and I had a wonderful 2-week stay at Snow Goose Cottage. The cottage is located in a very quiet, peaceful neighborhood, and it's a short drive to all the amenities Sun River has to offer, and a 20-minute drive to Bend. We loved the peaceful setting, and all of the wildlife (mule deer, squirrels, birds) that came to visit every day. The house was completely stocked with everything you could possible need for entertaining or relaxing. The owners were very easy to work with, and very accomodating. We loved coming back every night after exploring Central Oregon, knowing we'd have a tranquil and comfortable place to relax after being on the road all day. Neither one of us wanted to leave when our 2 week stay was up!!

Excellent HideAway near Bend, Oregon

  • 5 of 5

Our summer vacation in Central Oregon was memorable because of our experience with Snow Goose Cottage. The house was perfectly situated, walking distance to the Deschutes River, close to SunRiver and Mt Bachelor, and a mere 20 minutes to downtown Bend. Snow Goose Cottage is well-stocked and homey. The pictures of the home are accurate; the home is clean and well-maintained. The two bedrooms were well-appointed with lovely furniture and comfortable beds. The owners provided lovely soaps and fluffy towels in all three bathrooms. And! A washer-dryer too! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook at "home" and BBQ too. It was like walking into a welcoming friends' home; a friend who provided everything we needed for our vacation. We also loved watching a Mama Deer and her twin fawns every morning. Thank you Wickhams, for providing an excellent home for our vacation.

Lovely & Homey - Great place to unwind

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Snow Goose. The house was cozy and comfortable and well-equipped. We enjoyed a couple of cook-outs in the well equipped kitchen and chilled out at the cozy corner of the second floor with a wide array of movies. The bathrooms and laundry area were all very well kept. For nature lovers, the cottage is not far away from multiple trails and beautiful sights by car. The great thing about it the location too is that it's very near to the very classy Bend with artsy bakeries, coffeeshops, restaurants and shops (We loved it)! The owners have surely taken care and thought of every need of the visitors. We had a beautiful home away from home experience and certainly hope to return again some day (we've been talking about it!).
