About the Property

2 Bedroom 2 bath on the Big Deschutes River

Otterhouse is located right on the Deschutes River, 5 minutes from Sunriver Village and 20 minutes from downtown Bend or Mt. Bachelor. This 2 BR/2 BA, 2200sf vacation home sits 30 feet from the Deschutes River, directly across from a wetland/forest wildlife preserve. Quiet. Bucolic. This is the perfect retreat for playing in Central Oregon’s recreational paradise.
Enjoy unlimited mountain biking, fly fishing, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hiking, golfing, horse back riding, dirt bike riding, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding on dozens of local rivers and lakes, as well as water skiing and sailing in the Cascade Lakes recreational areas. Don’t miss the numerous festivals and events in Sunriver, Bend, Sisters and Redmond. Enjoy fine dining, terrific microbreweries, art galleries and live music venues throughout this vibrant area.
This riverside two-story chalet-style home features an open floor plan with natural light and vaulted cedar ceilings. It has a spacious, warm library/loft as well as a large TV entertainment room. There’s even a 9 foot shuffleboard table. The library sports a queen sleeper couch and there are two twin floor futons for sleeping wherever you like. The master bedroom has a California king and the downstairs bedroom a queen, both with luxury linens.

The living room features a pellet stove, soft leather furniture and a lovely bistro table at the windows overlooking the river. French doors open to the patio from the dining area, offering a gas BBQ, intimate seating area, as well as a dining deck to take in the breathtaking views. The kitchen is fully equipped and then some. A laundry room with washer/dryer/iron/board is available as well. Amenities include free WiFi, flat screen TV with surround sound and Blue Ray DVD player, Ipod docking speakers/alarm clocks.
Sit and enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife from inside or outside. Watch deer, elk, otter, ducks, geese, osprey, eagles and the rare great owl. Other visitors include squirrels, raccoons, foxes and cottontails. You can walk to an eagle’s nest, or launch a boat right from the yard; there’s even a good fishing hole right out front!
Although wonderfully private and in a quiet neighborhood, it is less than 5 minutes to Sunriver Village, and all its amenities, including: grocery store, restaurants, shopping, equipment rentals, stables, observatory, nature center, new huge pool complex, and ice rink(winter only).
Come and see for yourself; we think you will love our mountain paradise!
