About Sharon Ball

Welcome to the Kingfisher Inn!

Sharon Ball purchased this house in 2013

Why Sharon Ball chose Central Oregon

Many years ago and many miles away, we enjoyed a daily visit from a kingfisher. He would greet us from a large, graceful sycamore fig tree as we took our morning coffee near the river. When we finished he would follow us to the front of the house and perch in an acacia tree as we ate breakfast. Satisfied that the day was officially begun, he would leave us to our activities only to return to the fig tree the following morning.

We dedicate our home here on the Big Deschutes River to the memory of that persistent, little kingfisher and his daily vigil. We learned something of the rhythms of life from our coffee with the kingfisher. Our hope is that during your days here in our home you will discover new rhythms or relearn some old ones; that you will be immersed in wonder; and that you will leave refreshed!

What makes this house unique

The views of the river, watching the stars from the hot tub at night and the profound moments of stillness make this a place of peaceful sojourn!

Very clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice home and wonderful view right on the river! Kayaks, bikes, and hot tub were a real hit, especially with the young adults. Quiet and peaceful, it's a perfect place to relax. A good size picnic table and plenty of outdoor seating on th deck were perfect for entertaining other family members staying at other homes in the area. They were all very jealous of our spot, especially the view!

We only had five people staying in the house so there was plenty of room. If you had 9-12, the dining area would be extremely cozy. Towels, wash cloths, dish cloths and dish towels may be based on the number of guests and length of stay, but even so an increase in the number of hand towels, wash cloths, and dish cloths and towels would be nice.

We would love to have the rest of our immediate family join us for another stay here!

Mom's Group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 ladies had a wonderful time at Kingfisher Inn. Incredibly clean and cozy! Plenty of beds for all. Great areas to gather or spread out as we wished. Beautiful view of the Big Deschutes. We truly appreciated all the little extras with this home - boxes of tissues, hot tub towels, soft & cuddly throw blankets. Owners were awesome to work with. Great place. Will definitely rent here again!
