Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

You'll love this one of a kind house, located in a one of a kind spot!

The 4000 sq. ft. home is in a gated subdivision on the Deschutes River. The back looks out at the river and across to the river trail where bikers and hikers pass by throughout the day. With no houses across the river, it feels like you're out in the country, but you're right in town!

The main level is mostly great room with huge picture windows looking out to the river. The spacious kitchen with seating at the marble island is a natural gathering spot - and cooks will love the fully equipped kitchen with high end appliances including a 6 burner gas cooktop. The other side of the great room is the living area which has a gas fireplace and 70' HD TV with surround sound. Stepping outside onto the main deck, you will find yourself looking down on one of the prettiest sections of the Deschutes River. This is a fabulous place to spend the evenings. The sun sets early behind Awbrey Butte so there is a long twilight. Also on the main level is a full bathroom and an office/bedroom with a queen size bed.

Upstairs are two bedrooms. One is a nice sized bedroom with a queen bed and its own full bath. The other is the master. It's very spacious with a king bed, sitting area, and a huge private deck out over the roof. The bathroom is over the top with dual sinks, walk-in shower, jetted bath, and a washer and dryer.

Go downstairs to the lower level and you'll find yourself in the game room. It has a full size pool table, arcade games, pub table and chairs, couches, a 40' TV and great views of the river. Adjacent to the game room, there is a spacious bedroom with a terrific river view and a queen size bed. There is also a huge bunk room with two sets of bunkbeds and a queen bed. Further back you'll find a theater with a 100' screen and high quality surround sound. There's a PlayStation 3 that's really cool on the big screen with the surround sound. Rounding out the bottom level are two full bathrooms. The best part of the basement level is the covered granite patio overlooking the river. Watch the wildlife while you enjoy the shade on a warm summer day; or soak in the hot tub after skiing in the winter.

About Rick Gordon

I'm a carpenter / general contractor. I moved to Bend from Hawaii with my wife who grew up here. Since I like to golf, snowboard, and mountain bike I can't think of a better place to live.

Rick Gordon purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick Gordon chose Boyd Acres

This house is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning, work, and a little luck. A friend found the lot while visiting one of the neighbors. I couldn't believe that there was a lot on the river that was so conveniently located yet didn't even feel like it was in town. After considering a partnership with him to do a spec home, my wife and I decided to buy it for ourselves. Four years and many plans later, we finally started building. We finally moved in February of 2010. Unfortunately, my wife passed away from cancer. Suddenly I found myself with this huge house that is too much for my son and me. Since I love this house too much to sell, I decided to finish off the basement and make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy it. Of course, I also like that I can come use it still.

Absolutely the best!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect. Well stocked with everything you need for a perfect stay. It sounds like a silly thing to be impressed about but there was even more than enough TP in every bathroom! Never ran out even with 12 adults staying for 4 nights! The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked as well. Every bedroom is comfortable. Every bathroom is great. The game room was super fun and the large theater room was awesome for the one rainy day we had. And the view of the river is unbeatable! Rick was the best host we have ever had with any vacation rental. We will definitely be back.

Super fun property

  • 4 of 5

Great experience and value, only downside is that the location is not walkable/bike-able to any services (restaurants, store, etc.), however it is very walkable to the beautiful river, park, and hiking trails. We would stay again.

Owner's Response: I agree that it's not ideal for walking places. If that's important to you, look for something by downtown or on the westside. However, McKay Cottage is a beautiful 10 minute walk up the river and it has been rated Bend's best breakfast for several years running. Also, according to Google, it's less than 15 minutes walk to several fast food type places (Subway, Burger King, etc.) and a gas station/convenience store.

Great property, great location, helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property with an awesome location right on the river. Very nice open floor plan which was great for hosting a leadership planning meeting. We had a couple of issues with internet on our arrival, but the owner was very responsive and helped resolve the issues. Definitely recommend the property!

Perfect riverside home; room for all.

  • 5 of 5

Home was great! Came down with 10 guys for a getaway and the home was perfect. Comfy beds. Good TV and entertainment systems. Hot tub with an amazing view. Cupboards and drawers had random little things (spices, foil, pens, paper towels) so that was nice.
