About Kim Nisbet
Our family lives at the Oregon coast and we love the beach, but we also love the high desert and the true seasons of Central Oregon. This has been a second home for our extended family since 1998 and when they chose to sell it, we immediately chose to buy it and keep in the family. It is a wonderful home to take our grown children and grandchildren.
Kim Nisbet purchased this House in 2013
Why Kim Nisbet chose Sisters
This house is on the edge of the large Ponderosa Pines of the Cascade Mountains. The true seasons of this area bringing snow in the winter, warm sun in the summer, and peaceful surroundings year around, really attracted us to this area. Tollgate has a pool, a walking/biking path, tennis court and basketball court, and is only a mile from the western themed town of Sisters, OR and only 25 min from the great city of Bend, OR with it's many restaurants and amenities.
What makes this House unique
The home has an open floor plan inviting everyone to enjoy each others company as meals are prepared and games are played around the dining room table. The knotty pine ceilings and the river rock fire place complete the mountain retreat feel of the home.

Nice retreat in Sisters, OR
We enjoyed the biking trails & the swimming at the Tollgate community. Sisters was close for stores or other activities. Some of our party drove a few miles west to do the Black Butte Hike. The house had comfortable furniture & the kitchen was very well stocked! We were surprised at the amount and quality of towels (bath, pool & kitchen). We especially enjoyed the nice grass & the back deck for playing games & visiting. There were lots of outdoor games & grandkids enjoyed the games in the garage. The owners answered all our questions & were great to work with.
Absolutely delightful home with everything we needed for our stay. Everything was clean, comfortable, fully stocked, in great condition, and cute! The neighborhood was quiet, the location beautiful...We will definitely stay here again.
Felt like a home away from home. ☺️
The home feels “homey”. We’ve stayed in other rentals, and this one was exceptional. Great detail to decorating, the small touches, blankets at close reach, real coasters, extra cushions for additional floor seating. Didn’t feel like a hotel. The directions to find the house were clear. Great heating options, it worked well, we stayed during a hazardous weather warning, high winds, dumped snow, iced over overnight, we never even felt a cool draft. We loved the fact that it was easy to find things, drawers and cabinets throughout the house were clearly marked letting you know the contents of each, making it easy to find what you’re looking for. Great array of kitchen equipment, especially good variety of small appliances. Very nice neighbors. Had it not snowed like crazy, if the weather had been nicer we would probably would have enjoyed the nice deck out back overlooking the common area. The roads in the development were plowed very early after the snow ceased, walking paths were quickly cleared of snow as well. We would absolutely stay here again in the future.
Wonderful family retreat home
This is a large open well furnished Home. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The game tables in the garage were a big hit and gave us indoor activity and entertainment. Definitely recommend this vacation home☃️
This place is great!!
We really enjoyed our family vacation at the ponderosa house! The place is much nicer then the pictures show. The house, deck and yard is beautiful and the kids loved the closet full of toys. We went on multiple bike rides during our stay and took advantage of the community pool. The owner Kim was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely stay again!
Great family rental
A nice home with lots to keep kids and family entertained.
