About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This is the ideal home for your Central Oregon getaway. It is spacious, comfortable, family-friendly, and in a prime location near the Lodge, swimming, golf, playgrounds, and bike trails. Black Butte Ranch has something to offer for everyone.

Our Home:

A beautiful, well-appointed home in the perfect setting. Three bedrooms, each with a king bed. Two full bathrooms, one with a tub/shower, and the other with a shower stall. Great-room style living area with vaulted living room, stone fireplace (wood pellet stove), large screen TV, full sound sytem, DVD, spacious dining area with a large table that seats 10-12, and well-stocked, open kitchen featuring granite counters and updated appliances. Full laundry room (brand-new washer and dryer) with extra refrigerator. Upstairs loft with full-size pool table and TV. The loft has plenty of space for our two queen-sized and 2 twin-sized blow-up beds (great for the kids!). We have a large deck in the back that includes a propane barbecue, patio table and chairs, lounge chairs, and large professionally-maintained hot tub. We also have a very comfy hammock in the backyard--perfect for napping!

Sitting on the deck in the afternoons with a glass of wine, watching the wildlife and the occasional golfer--it's a wonderful way to end your day! And after the sun goes down, there's nothing like sitting in the hot tub and enjoying some star-gazing.

The Location:

Our home sits on the 8th tee box of Big Meadow Golf Course. Gorgeous views!!! We have a prime location that is close to many of Black Butte Ranch's activities and amenities. We are within walking distance of the kids' playground, Big Meadow clubhouse and restaurant, basketball courts, soccer field, sand volleyball court, the Lodge, tennis courts, Rec Barn (kids' activity/game center), the Lodge pool and bistro. Our home is surrounded by numerous bike/walking paths--we have several adult bikes at the house that are yours to enjoy.

This home has been our family's retreat for the last 15 years, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you. We have so many wonderful memories of fun family times--holidays, summer vacations, weddings, birthdays, and more. It's the perfect spot for you to make memories with your family. We look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you.

About Karen Schmitt

Our family lives in Portland and for many years, we visited Black Butte Ranch, renting several different homes. As soon as we were able, we knew it was where we wanted our vacation home to be located. It was a wonderful decision, and we have had countless wonderful experiences there.

Karen Schmitt purchased this house in 1996

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

Black Butte is an all time favorite place for me and this house is absolutely perfect for one or two families! I wish we could have stayed longer but had to get back to work. I'd definitely look to this house first next time we need a place to stay there

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth time our extended family of 10 has rented this home for a winter vacation. We keep coming back because this home is well supplied with everything we need: king-size beds for the adults and blow-up mattresses for the kids, plenty of bedding and towels, a well-stocked kitchen, puzzles and games, a hot tub on the back deck and carpeting throughout--cozy on very cold days. The home is light and airy with windows looking out on the golf course. On this visit we enjoyed cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right out the door. The home is roomy and welcoming and always immaculately clean, another big plus.

Fantastic home quality, and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The location inside of Black Butte is fantastic. Close enough to the entrance that our two small boys can easily ride to the main pool and lodge area. Great view out the back to the golf course. The quality of the house was fantastic as well. The carpet was clean, very thick and lush. The hot tub was always on and easy to use. The garage was stocked full of bikes and toys. We plan to vacation here every year.

Perfect space for three families.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the nice, open floor plan and the well stocked kitchen (and 2 refridgerators!) We enjoyed our time at the house, exploring Black Butte ranch and Hoodoo ski resort. Ideal location and setting for a winter getaway. The hot tub is nice and large with a beautiful view. We also enjoyed playing pool, and we were impressed with the king size beds in the three bedrooms. Kids slept on inflatable mattresses in the loft. Owners were very responsive when we had questions. We hope to be back!
