This wonderfully decorated three-bedroom Sunriver vacation home is just waiting for your family vacation, holiday getaway, or quiet high desert retreat! Just about 15 miles south of Bend, Oregon, Sunriver is a family-friendly destination boasting over 35 miles of paved biking trails, a state-of-the-art Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC), a spa, holiday sleigh rides, ice skating, and world class golf courses.
When you step inside, you'll be greeted by an abundance of natural light streaming in from the many windows, as well as a pleasant Americana/Folk Art decorating scheme. The large open space downstairs is light and airy, with comfortable furnishings that will make everyone in your group feel right at home. In the living room and dining area, you'll find beautifully framed Sunriver Music Festival Posters hung up high on the walls, taking advantage of the tall ceilings.
After a day skiing at Mt. Bachelor or biking around, come back to your Sunriver home for a night of movies, everyone gathered around the TV on the cozy living room sofas. In addition to a DVD player and cable, there's also a VCR in case you want to bring old school video tapes from home. A large coffee table can hold snacks, drinks, and even board games or a puzzle.
An open kitchen and dining area feature a lovely wood-burning, river rock fireplace for cozy meal preparation and dinner feasts. The galley-style kitchen has a range/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave - all you'll need for preparing everything from bowls of granola and fruit in the morning to a French-themed meal with coq au vin at night. There's even a coffee grinder for freshly ground beans in the morning.
Right off the dining table, sliding glass doors lead out to a patio for cookouts on the gas grill, sitting out in the afternoon sun, or even an after-dinner glass of port, everyone all bundled up against the chilly evening. In summer, you can sit outside and listen to the birds and in winter, the patio can still be enjoyed with mugs of hot cocoa and warm mittens.
On the main level, you'll find two bedrooms - one with a queen bed and one with two twins. Both have lovely quilts, comfortable beds, and nice accessories like reading lamps, bedside tables, and wooden dressers. Between the bedrooms is a downstairs laundry room, for keeping clothes clean and dry after days out exploring the area. A full bathroom with a shower/tub condo is also located on this floor.
The master suite and its king-size bed are located upstairs in the loft. With tall, vaulted ceilings, this luxurious area has a TV, a small sitting area, and a private bath with shower (no tub). It's a beautiful retreat for relaxing at the end of a fun Sunriver day! This home will comfortably sleep six guests - if extra space is needed, consider also booking nearby #30 Circle Four Cabin for an additional eight guests.
At only a mile away, SHARC is close by for swimming in both indoor and outdoor pools, a lazy river, outdoor hot tub, and even water slides. And when you stay at this home, six SHARC passes are included with your stay. Also an easy bike ride away, is the Village at Sunriver for dining and shopping, the stables for horseback riding, tennis courts, and one of two golf courses, Meadows and The Woodlands. There's even the Sage Springs Spa for a day filled with well-deserved pampering.
Sunriver also has a number of recreation partners, providing family-friendly excursions like whitewater rafting, mountain bike tours featuring a downhill trail past waterfalls, rock climbing at Smith Rock State Park, and fly fishing in one of the area's many rivers and streams.
Just outside Sunriver, Mt. Bachelor beckons in winter for downhill skiing and snowboarding, plus you'll find ample opportunities throughout the Deschutes National Forest for snowshoeing, as well as cross-country skiing. On your way back to Sunriver, stop in Bend for dinner at one of the many restaurants - shrimp and jambalaya at Zydeco Kitchen, middle eastern delicacies at Joolz, or burgers and pints of Bachelor Bitter at the Deschutes Brewery Public House.
With its abundance of amenities, nearby attractions, and things to do, this comfortable Sunriver vacation rental will make your time in the Oregon high desert both relaxing and memorable!
