About the Property

Our Private 40 Acre Ranch in Bend, OR is ideally located to explore all of CO

This beautiful 3 bedroom / 3 bath home is located on a private 40 acre ranch in farm and ranch country just 10 miles northwest of downtown Bend, Oregon. Located on the Twin Bridges leg of the Oregon Scenic Bikeways.

The Pond House at Bright Mountain Ranch is newly remodeled and beautifully furnished throughout. Wake up to mountain views of the Sisters, Broken Top and Mount Bachelor. From April to September take our small boat out in the pond, which is fed from those snow-capped mountains. Bring your horse and ride off our property just a mile up the road to public land and the Tumalo Reservoir basin.

We offer flexibility of stay and lower rates with our Winter Special running from October 01, 2016 - March 31, 2017. All you have to do is choose how many nights you want to spend at our private ranch:
- 2 Night Stay at $299 per night or
- 3 Night Stay at $249 per night, that is a 16% savings off our standard rate

Bright Mountain Ranch boasts the sights and sounds of horses in the pastures and corrals, Red-Tail Hawks and Swainson's Hawks swooning the skies above, Great Horned Owls serenading you from the surrounding trees, and wild Mallards and Canada Geese dipping into the pond.

And the stars...lots of stars.

The Pond House at Bright Mountain Ranch is a fully furnished 3 bedroom 3 bath home sleeps up to 6 guests in beds, and can easily accommodate more on air mattresses’ and the couch.

The master suite invites you to rest in a comfortable king bed. A queen bed sleeps two in the 2nd bedroom and there are two twin beds in the 3rd bedroom. All beds are made with freshly laundered quality linens and extra pillows. We take extra care to insure your bed is fresh and clean, changing and laundering all linens, mattress pads, and pillow protectors after each stay.

The bathrooms offer soft towels, hairdryer, and complimentary toiletries.

Table linens and seating for 6 adorn the country dining room.

The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless appliances, cookware, flatware, dinnerware and glassware, and complimentary coffee and tea.

Enjoy watching movies from the growing DVD collection on the big screen television. Warm-up in front of the pellet stove. Read a book in the sunny living room glancing out at the mountains. Be still with the quiet that surrounds you.
