About the property

Spacious unique home with different themed rooms and large areas for groups

Come and snuggle up next to one of the 3 fireplaces in our home or take a dip in your own indoor pool heated to 95 degrees- We like it warm! On hot summer days we will cool the pool down and make it a refreshing place to escape the heat. We just installed a fun turbo twist water slide for your entire family's enjoyment!! There is an outdoor chessboard with 2 foot high chess pieces perfect for the thinkers in your family. There are 4 bedrooms. The green room has a queen bed and has trees that give it an exotic feel, . We have a bunk room that comes with two complete bunk beds with queen beds on the bottom and a twin on top. They also come with lots of drawers to put away all of your children many clothes, as well as two full closets! This room does have its own bathroom complete with a new jacuzzi bathtub!! The 3rd bedroom is a very simplistic room with some beautiful furniture and a queen bed. There are no windows in this room so it is perfect for anyone needing that afternoon nap from all of your activities! The main bathroom sits across the hall from this bedroom and is a beautiful tile bathroom with a Swedish shower massage unit. You can choose from several different sprays to give your bathing routine new meaning! Then of course there is the famous log cabin room. It is made entirely of beautiful logs and also has its own private bathroom. It has a king bed, which sits on top of an unusually high bed frame made out of solid real wood logs. You also have your own personal fireplace in this room to add to the atmosphere.

We have recently remodeled and have added an extremely plush carpet throughout the living rooms. Your toes will get a refreshing treat and you may find that your guests will want to just stay and sleep on the very soft and fluffy carpet!

We have designed our home for entertaining purposes. There are lots of stacking chairs that can be placed around 2 folding tables, if the two large round glass tables are not enough for your dining needs. We have place settings for 30 so you don't always have to wash after each meal. There are two standup refrigerators and freezers to hold all of your food as well as a gas oven, double oven and a large microwave. Our home is does have a BBQ if that is still not enough cooking space for you.

We are excited to share our home with you! We love its unique character- You will not find another one like it. That is why we have decided to open it up to families who want to create lasting memories, and enjoy an affordable experience. Because of this, there is NO CABLE in the home. There is one TV/DVD combo in a sitting/viewing area for watching movies. There is also a projector screen out in our recreational room. It was a garage that we converted into a gym area, with gym flooring for hosting parties or exercising. We have had small dances out there and meals. It is an open room that can be used for many different purposes. It has a Blue ray/DVD player in it, and zero gravity chairs for viewing your favorite action or family movie. So sit back, laugh and build those memories that will last long into your child's adult years.

*house currently has 3 air conditioning units. - and we cool the pool down,it is very refreshing!

About Christine Olson

Our family has always lived in Oregon. Although we love to travel and I am always looking for great places to stay with a large family. We purchased this home for ourselves as we have many children. We loved living here and consider it our home. We have recently moved due to work, but couldn't part with such a wonderful home. So we have remodeled it, and know that you will enjoy this unique find the way that we have.

Christine Olson purchased this house in 2005

Why Christine Olson chose Redmond

This property is so unique that there isn't anything like it in the area. You really have stumbled upon a wonderful place that is centrally located, and that will allow you to be with a large group of friends and/or family.

What makes this house unique

The pool is definitely unique. We are the only home in all of Redmond that has an indoor pool. It even has a diving board, and a new turbo twist water slide! The log room is amazing and so is the theater room/exercise room.

Nice home for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place. Good location, lovely neighborhood. Clean and the kitchen was well stocked. Nice eating areas. Pool plastic cover was a pain to take on and off. The back door and the sliding glass door in the bedroom did not lock. No end tables and the overhead lights in the living room were harsh. Would recommend this home.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed our home! I wish you would have texted me about the problems- the doors do lock- not sure why that was hard, and the lights have dimmers on them which are beautiful. I agree the cover can be hard to do by yourself but with two people it is very easy and smooth. Thanks for coming- we hope to see you again

We loved the place!

  • 5 of 5

The property is unique in the fact that it will house a lot of people. The pool was great! The theater room was great! The ovens & 2 fridges was great for a large group!

There were a FEW things Not So Great, but not enough to change my review of the property. The homeowner was available by phone & assured us she was sincere about the problem we had. (Appliance malfunction)!

I don’t know who manages the property, but there were lights missing, stove fan/light didn’t work & the floors weren’t all swept clean. (My grandson found a cheeto within a few minutes of us being there)🤔

Again, the place is great for a family get together!!

Very responsive Home Owner

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, the house was very spacious and fit all 16 of us, perfectly. The house does need some repairs. I would definitely rent it again though. The reviews I read about his home before I rented it were very accurate. The kids loved the pool, but you have to be in the pool to enjoy that room, it does not have very good ventilation and the windows do not open.

Fun place in Redmond!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for business and rented this huge place. With the indoor pool and sleeping for so many it is a great place for a team or decent size business trip. We had a great time!

Mt. Bachelor
Car: recommended

You will be staying in an older established neighborhood that sits a block away from the dry creek canyon. It is a fantastic place to leisurely walk, ride bikes, etc all while watching birds and wildlife. Dry creek cayon also runs through Redmond leading through and to various parks throughout the city. We are conveniently located next to Bend which offers year around activities including the famous Mt. Bachelor for skiing and all of your winter activities. The City of Redmond is known for a slower lifestyle that completes any vacation with its relaxation. But don't be fooled, there are lots of boutiques and antique shops to look at during the day, as well as a water fountain park in the summer and an iceskating park in the winter. Evenings become alive with the various brew houses and evening movies in the outdoor amphitheater. Next to Redmond you have Terrebonne which is home to the World Famous Smith Rock. Known by all for the famous 'Monkey Face' natural rock statue that people come for all over the world to climb. Sheer cliffs that lead to the top can also be accessed by the well established walking trail for those who don't want to dangle by a piece of metal and rope. However, if you are somewhere in between, you can choose to pay for lessons and there are several learner courses to wet your appetite! Redmond is also close to Madras which is home to Lake Billy Chinook which is famous for its fishing, boating and jet ski rentals. There is also diving allowed, but the visibility is very limited. These are just a few of the main cities that Redmond is in the heart of. All of them have very unique activities that they offer, but they all offer great views of the beautiful mountains, lots of mountain lakes, interesting and challenging golf courses, as well as lots of BLM land to ride your horse, or ATV on.
