Why Debbie Garrow chose Deschutes River Woods

There are not many properties in Central Oregon that enable you to feel completely away from it all along the beautiful Deschutes River, while only a ten minute car ride from movie theaters, fine restaurants skiing, golfing, outdoor recreation and shopping!

What makes this house unique

Explore the river along nearby trails with your dog. Spend afternoons reading, in the hammock along the Deschutes River or play games in front of the fireplace and you will be planning your next trip back!

A beautiful place and something for everybody

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week. Our party ranged in ages from 10 to 74. With an extremely well-equipped house and the river right there, nobody ever got bored. Basic shopping--Walmart, Albertson's, and a country store--is nearby, although getting to and from Hwy 97 is a bit complex. We met the property manager Nancy, who lives two houses away. She was very helpful and is a sweetheart. In a word, we all loved our stay.

Magical place

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, idyllic location. Found it so difficult to leave the serenity of the river and the many activities that Bend offers. Went kayaking, hiking, tubing, and stand-up paddle boarding. Should have stayed longer than a week. Looking forward to a return visit already.

Beautiful, Well-Appointed River-Front Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the rare vacation house which has *EVERYTHING*. Our family was able to cook a full Thanksgiving meal there! The house is well maintained, and the views of the river are gorgeous. This house is a gem.
