About the property

4 Bedroom With Game Room, Fenced / Gated 1 Acre Yard, Pet Friendly

This 3,200 square foot Sunriver vacation home sits on an acre of land just three miles from Sunriver Resort in Oregon's high desert.

From here, you can be at Mt. Bachelor for a day of skiing or snowboarding in about 18 minutes, and just three blocks away, you'll also have access to a private boat ramp on the Deschutes River. There are also over eight freshwater lakes within 30 minutes of driving which offer great fishing, swimming, paddle boarding and sailing.

The house is on a huge lot that is fenced in, so don’t leave your dog at home, bring him/her and allow them to enjoy the acre of open area. We don’t have any parking limitations in our area as long as you are on our property. The acre of yard also allows space for your toys, your pets and your little ones to play and be safe.

This home has recently been renovated and completely redecorated. Take advantage of Persian rugs throughout the home, a game room with bar, entertainment center, gaming center, a separate TV Room and four bedrooms.

This home also has access to The Sunriver Fitness and Aquatics Center which has a workout area and an indoor swimming pool that is 6 miles away. Please note this is not the SHARC. 14 free passes

On the main level, you will find a cozy living room, dining room, 3 bedrooms, game room and a full kitchen. Relax near the fire on the leather couch while the kids play in the game room or the TV room upstairs…ah yes…room to enjoy an adult conversation! We are parents and designed this home so it is kid and adult friendly. We focused our emphasis on having fun…which is why we added the game room. It is fully equipped with a poker table, foosball table, air hockey, a 56-inch flat screen TV with a Wii and Xbox, and Netflix. We also added a TV room which is upstairs.

For formal meals, a large wooden table seats up to six, with more spots available nearby at the breakfast bar. When you do want to prepare a meal, the large, gourmet kitchen is sure to inspire the chef in your group. There are stainless steel appliances, a beautiful tile floor, ample counter space and extras like a coffee grinder, slow cooker, blender, and mixer, so you can let your culinary aspirations take over!

Upstairs you will find the TV Room with a 46 inch TV and a large bedroom that has its own deck. The TV room also has a pull out couch and a futon, so it can be used as a bedroom if you prefer.

At night, the four bedrooms provide a comfortable spot for up to 13 guests (with a maximum occupancy of 14). There's a king bed, three queens, three twin beds, a double bed,a futon, and a sofa bed. The bedrooms all feature designer wall colors, comfortable bedding, and lovely accessories. The kids' room even has stuffed animals, toys, and games! There are also two full bathrooms here, one with a relaxing jetted tub. Other amenities include a stereo, CD player, and a washer and dryer - so you don't have to worry about staying clean while out exploring.

This Central Oregon vacation rental is close to a number of activities - boating on the Deschutes River, a day spent hiking or biking along the Deschutes National Forest trail, or you can borrow the two adult and three kids bikes and ride around the neighborhood.

In winter, spend the day skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor, or enjoy cross county skiing or snow shoeing at the nearby snow park fifteen minute away.

Year-round, Bend is an easy day trip at just 20 miles away. Spend the day brewery hopping, browsing galleries, or shopping at the Old Mill District. For the more adventurous, make the drive an hour southeast for a day exploring the beautiful desert landscape at Fort Rock State Natural Area.

No matter how you spend your time at this Sunriver vacation rental, one thing is sure - you'll never run out of things to do! From its elegant design, great entertainment amenities, and ideal high desert location, home is an ideal home base for a memorable central Oregon group getaway!

(Please note that this property is not in Sunriver Resort and does not have access to any Sunriver amenities.)

About Chris Palle

We are a very activity orientated family that enjoys skiing, surfing, fishing, hiking, snorkeling, biking, tennis, running in our area. We are from the Northwest and moved to Sunriver in 2011.

Chris Palle purchased this house in 2011

Why Chris Palle chose Bend

This house had the location we wanted. We have a rule in our family that we have to live within 20 minutes of a ski hill. That is hard to find in Sunriver and Bend, but we did it! We also wanted to be close to the national forest and the river. We are avid fishermen and enjoy the Fall river which is 20 minutes away along with Sunriver Resort and the Cascade Lakes. Finally, the large yard and 6 foot fence allow our young children to play outside and our chocolate lab to enjoy the sun.

What makes this house unique

We loved the idea of having three main living areas, the living room, the game room and TV room. That way everyone has enough room to do what they would like. Our families lived far away and so we wanted to have enough space so that we could all spend time together and not feel cooped up in a small home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was great! Everything we needed! It was clean and beautiful! Would rent again

Great house for our two families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this house. We had two families with us with a total of six kids and two dogs and everyone was super happy. There was more than enough space for the kids (and dogs) to run around, play basketball, throw a ball around, etc. It was about a 20 minute drive to Mt. Bachelor and 5 minutes to Sunriver- super easy! The house was very comfortable and everyone had a great space to sleep. When we had a couple questions the owners were very responsive. I would definitely stay here again, in fact we can’t wait to come back!

Great home to have spent our December 20th Christmas Day! It was perfect for our 10 family members!

  • 5 of 5

We met our 4 grown children here to celebrate Christmas & my husband's 60th birthday. Our oldest son, his wife & 15 month old from Ashland, Our son & wife from Redmond, our daughter from Ashland and our daughter & her husband from Amsterdam, NL. All had a great time! We loved that Andrea had decorated the house for Christmas, especially the Christmas tree! The coffee pot didn't work the first morning but Chris brought his own coffee pot over until they bought a new one later that day. We loved the wine & chocolate that was left there for us. We recommend getting to this property in the daylight because it's address is a little hard to find. There are only 2 bathrooms on one end of the house but it was not that big of a problem. 6 of us sat in the hot tub when it was lightly snowing. We visited the High Desert Museum and the Sun River Brewery which had delicious appetizers. It was a very enjoyable 5 days!!!

The house is a nice home with an open floor plan great for big groups.

  • 3 of 5

The house had extra stuff in it x box, wii and air hockey. Had a hard time getting any to work. We were notified that the hot tub had an issue as we were heading here and never really got to use it. The owner lives down the road which could be nice if any real issues came up but for our group we felt we didn’t have complete privacy. I understand this Home is their investment but I just didn’t like the feeling of them so close and able to just stop by. We had dirty dishes, they were in the cubbords with mouse droppings in them. I paid a cleaning fee through the place I booked through and we were asked to take all bedding off start laundry which isn’t a huge deal but we are on vacation and with paying a cleaning fee I don’t feel I.T needs to be done by the us.

Owner's Response: Hi Justin, I'm happy to hear that you liked the house. I am sorry if I interrupted your stay the day after your arrival. I had to check the hot tub to make sure the temperature was correct after the repair on your arrival day. Once I confirmed that it was correct and ready to be used, I departed. Again... Sorry if I interrupted. Upon check out, according to our guest welcome letter and check out instructions we do request that each group pull the linens off the beds and place used linens in the laundry room but according to the same letter, starting laundry is completely up to you. We do not suggest you do so but thanks for taking the time to start a load. Again...I'm sorry to hear that you felt this was an inconvenience. Regarding the droppings, this time of year in Central Oregon occasionally a mouse does get in, usually through doors left open or when people are going in and out. Unfortunately they can quickly cause a mess. Our housekeeper notified us after your departure that she had found some droppings. The problem has been taken care of. Our welcome letter does say that if you have any issues or questions or if you need anything at all to contact us right away giving us the opportunity to address anything you may have a concern about. We did not hear from you or anyone in your group about any concerns during your stay. Thanks again for staying with us.

The house was perfect for our family, including our 2 grandsons. There was enough space that everyone felt comfortable under one roof.
