Built with the idea of being the best vacation home you could find. Located across from Sunriver Village Mall. Short walk (500 feet) to Country Store for your morning paper and coffee drink. With all of this it's still a quiet location with lots of common area. The red roof of the Country Store is visible through the trees in the deck view picture.

We made the kitchen the best working and equipped possible. Stainless, dual fuel range, maple cabinets, granite counter tops and tile floors to dress it up. Tired of opening every cupboard to find a coffee cup? Open upper cupboards take care of that, just look. Lower cabinets and huge built in open wall shelves all pull out on rollers for ease of finding things. Pantry room just inside back door and adjacent to the kitchen for your supplies. Extra refrigerator and freezer in the garage for your use. No second Costco run necessary.

Good beds, great showers and entertained kids make for a great vacation. Game room has three dedicated stand up arcade games, pinball, 42 inch flat screen TV with DVD/VCR player, hookups for your console video games and 300 movies. Four extra sleeping pads in the game room. The kids will be dazzled. Recreation/swimming passes included.

All bedrooms have private full baths.

About Craig Carlson

Worked as a seafood broker for the last 40 years. My own one man company, Carlson Seafood Inc. We live and work in Portland, OR. We also did some real estate investing an have four properties we use as vacation rentals. We try to have well stocked houses to make it easy for our guests.

Why Craig Carlson chose Sunriver

Huge lots with lots of common area. The map doesn't show Backwoods Lane. Backwoods is the stub on the map across the street from Woodland Lane. I don't know why it's not shown??? It's actually a 12 house circle with a huge island in the center. Great place for kids to play, Frisbee golf, hide and seek. Great area. Close to everything. You won't need your car.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

A group of us headed out for a ski weekend and had a great experience at this house. Craig is super responsive and easy to work with. The house is in a great location, has a nice layout and includes a bath for each bedroom -- great! It also was the best stocked rental house we've used. Well done!

Fantastic for Multi-Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation -- and a huge part of that was Craig and the house. Craig responded to every inquiry quickly, helping us resolve anything that came up. The house was well stocked (especially the kitchen -- thanks!). As a family with multiple-dietary restrictions to work around, we knew we'd be cooking a lot and were easily able to do so at this house. The jukebox and huge selection of movies were fun bonuses, and access to SHARC added another bunch of fun stuff to do. From small children to adults, we all had a great time. Thank you!

Best Family Christmas Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our group of 4 families, with 7 adults and 6 kids from age 4 to 16. The layout was great. Everyone had their own space to get away from the happy racket, and the shared areas were plenty big for energetic kids. The kids loved the game room and the movie selection, but the biggest hit for everyone age 11-up was the jukebox. We played a lot of games to music by the fireplace.

The kitchen was extremely well-stocked, and all the self-proclaimed gourmet cooks pronounced it perfect in all ways. We ate every meal at the house, except for those people skiing all day. We even made homemade doughnuts on New Year's Eve as a special treat.

We had a some questions about outdoor lights and a few other things, so we texted Craig and got an almost immediate response even though he was on vacation. We were pretty impressed with all of his communication from start to finish.

The furnishings were very upscale, and it was great to put all the clothes in closets and dressers as opposed to living out of a suitcase. The beds were all great, and everyone got good sleep, which makes for happy people. The hot tub was very nice, and people preferred that to the sauna, although that looked awesome. There was a lot of snow, which the kids loved, so we didn't use the deck area at all. This house is very conveniently located to the shops, too.

We all went to the SHARC to swim. What a cool place! The pool was pretty cold, but that didn't stop people from having a good time. The outdoor hot tub was really nice after the cool pool. Despite the crowd, the locker rooms had plenty of lockers and hot water for showering.

We'd love to come back here in the summer and enjoy all the recreation areas we passed on our rides to the mountain.

Thanks for creating such a warm, welcoming home away from home!

Great house for big family get togethers!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our long weekend here at 4 Backwoods, Sun River. Everything was great. The home is very well stocked from toilet paper to spices to dishes and pots and pans. We had plenty of everything needed. Craig was right on the ball and very accommodating. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our 6 family gathering. All the bedrooms have their own bath so there was enough room for everyone! The house is located a mere minutes from the Village so we walked to the stores, shopping and brew pubs. We would highly recommend this property and will surely go back!

Wonderful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about it! The home is very well taken care of and spacious with a cozy cabin feel. Lots of sleeping spaces, great for multiple families! We were amazed at how well stocked it was, from bathroom necessities to everything you could imagine in the kitchen! We have been to Sunriver several times and this has been our favorite house. The game room was a huge hit with the kids, they loved all the games and the great movie selection. The adults enjoyed the sauna and hot tub. We had a great time and will definitely keep this house saved for future Sunriver trips! Craig was so wonderful to work with when booking for us. No complaints about anything at all. Great home, much more than pictures have to offer! We loved it and will be came.
