About the property

5-star Lodge, 6 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Idyllic, spacious riverfront lodge near Sunriver. The Mountain View Retreat is a beautifully rustic, conveniently modern, large 3400 square foot home on a very private acre on the Deschutes River just 10 minutes south of world-famous Sunriver Resort. If you are attracted to the spectacular Cascade Mountain region of central Oregon, this is the perfect place to take advantage of all it has to offer. The six bedroom, four bath house is situated right on the river, overlooking a wildlife-rich peninsula created by a large bend in the Deschutes River. Deer, elk, otter, foxes, chipmunks, eagles, ducks and geese, and many other species of birds are in regular view. Downriver a view of Mount Bachelor, with its world-class ski resort, opens up, along with views of other nearby mountains.

We are close enough to Sunriver to enjoy its amenities -- many of which are accessible for full- and half-day rates -- yet just far enough away from all the hustle and bustle that comes with resort living.

We have two other houses on adjacent riverside properties, one smaller and one larger. If this one doesn't quite suit you, or you need to accommodate a large group, check out the Riverside Lodge (VRBO 153403) and the Cottage (153385) -- 500 to 600 feet further downstream, on our same private driveway. With all three houses, groups as large as 42 can be accommodated.

The main floor of the Mountain View Retreat has over 1200 square feet of connected living area with a living room, dining room with seating for 12 or more, and country kitchen with both an eating and sitting area. This opens out onto a log deck that runs the length of the house, overlooking the river, with lounge chairs and two picnic tables. Two of the four upstairs/main level bedrooms open into their own bath. All upstairs rooms except one have river views. Ten can sleep comfortably on this level, plus one or two infants in our collapsible crib and Pack & Play. Bring a sleeping bag and you can sleep one more child on the couch in the Master bedroom.

Downstairs are two additional bedrooms, a bathroom, and a game room with a pool table and log bunk beds. All rooms have river views. Six can sleep comfortably down here. The hot tub, dock, and deck overhanging the river can all be accessed from the upper deck, or through the game room.

TO BOOK: If you click on the "book now" link, you will first pay the VRBO service fee of approximately 5%. You will then need to contact us directly to make the rental payments -- 50% due now, the balance due 45-days before arrival -- on a credit card over the phone. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

About Jane Williams

The owner's well-loved family vacation home.

Jane Williams purchased this house in 2003

Why Jane Williams chose Oregon Water Wonderland

Our family loves Central Oregon, with all of the recreational opportunities, great weather, and convenience to our home in Eugene, OR. We also love river and mountain views, and this property is one of the rare riverfront properties over here that is on the river with great mountain views. It is also a very private location--only four houses on our private road, three of them ours for vacation rentals.

What makes this house unique

We love this property for its outstanding views, privacy, the Deschutes River for boating, floating, fishing or swimming, easy access to hiking and biking trails, and the close proximity (5 miles) to Sunriver Resort with all the amenities such as golf and tennis courses, the new SHARC water park, bike trails, restaurants, groceries, and shops. (Sorry NO WEDDINGS! And no LARGE GATHERINGS beyond the stated occupancy of this property. Thank you!)

The Mountain View Retreat was FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable for our group of 16 people 13-15-21-23 and 50+ year (5 families), we all loved it. Living/dining room was great, very nice kitchen and well equiped and a good bbq available. All bedrooms very comfortable, master bedroom is super. Pooltable/table tennis area is very nice. Loved the hottub. Quit area, fantastic garden, river AND VIEW. Even deers one morning walking trough the garden. The balcony is very large and enough chairs for all of us and the patio next to the river was also perfect. Swimming in river is possible, but cold. We rented floats which was fun, started from the house but that was a bit too long, about 3,5 hours!! All communication with Jane was very good. We highly recommend the house. Thanks from the dutch visitors for the lovely stay. We'll be back.....

Family gathering at Deschutes Mtn View resort

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time I have stayed at this wonderful place w/ my family. We number close to 16, most years, and this year had four generations, our ages spanning between 93 and 2. We have made a practice of bringing paddle boards, kayaks and bicycles, and have had a great time exploring the river, which has a very gentle current, enabling us to boat up and downstream directly from the house. Our bike riding adventures have been primarily over in LaPine State park, 10 miles down the road, though we also bike to Sun River for shopping. The grounds and house are so relaxing with a large lawn, 2 decks, and plenty of places to lounge in and outside.

Unforgettable week in a Magical Setting

  • 5 of 5

The aptly named Mountain View Retreat exceeded every expectation, starting with that amazing view. Situated on a graceful bend on the Deschutes River, the view from deck is absolutely spectacular with the iconic Mt. Bachelor reflecting gloriously on the gently flowing water. It may be the finest view of Mt. Bachelor anywhere in the Sunriver/Bend area! It was as if we found our inside the Deschutes Brewery beer label.

This place is also a wonderful retreat. It's far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town to provide you with total privacy (save the lazing inner-tubers floating by), but close enough to the Sunriver resort to provide any and all conveniences you may desire- such as the aforementioned brew! The place itself is wonderfully and comfortably appointed, and it is much much bigger than it first appears.

Mountain View Retreat was the PERFECT place for our small family reunion!
