About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6 Baths With A View Of Black Butte + 100 Yds From Meadow Walk

This is a uniquely special house, just 100 yards from the awe-inspiring meadow walk in one direction, South Meadow Pool and two tennis courts 100 yards out the back door and yet privately nestled into the Deschutes national forest as a backyard. There are very few Black Butte Ranch homes that accommodate 20 people with ease and this house does not disappoint. There is a large family room with a 25 foot ceiling with 8 huge windows that faces the 2,400 sqft back deck and National Forest. The 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms offer privacy and plenty of space. Relax in the hot tub or play ping pong on the back deck. Shoot hoops or throw horseshoes in the front of the house. There are a handful of adult and kid bikes in the 3-car garage, tennis rackets for playing tennis, play ping pong on the back deck. It's simply a fantastic vacation home - especially for families!

About Shannon Buchanan

My wife, our 2 daughters, and I have shared so many amazing experiences at our Black Butte Ranch house - hosting large family gatherings and having 4 or 5 families of friends stay here. We feel so fortunate to have all of these great memories and we are looking forward to others having the opportunity for special gatherings and experiences as well.

A great family space

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home that easily accommodated all 18 of us. A beautiful location with a pool and tennis courts only a short walk away. The owner was most helpful and gave us very clear directions on what to expect and how to really enjoy our stay. All the bicycles made it great for family rides around the resort.

Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for the size of our family. We have 17 people in our family. A lot of our kids and grand-kids live out of state and Black Butte Ranch gave us a great SAFE place to get together.. This home fitted us perfectly, with enough bedrooms for the adults and the big bonus-bedroom for the grand-kids. It was nice having a pool right out the backdoor when we didn't want to drive or bike to the lodge pool. Great golf courses and bike, and hiking trails on the ranch. Can't wait to go back.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

It's not easy to find a place that will house 5 families to gather and celebrate but this house worked well for our group. The kitchen layout allowed many people easy access and was well stocked. Its also super helpful to have 2 dishwashers and 2 refrigerators when you have that big of a group. Plenty of beds available in different configurations give you flexibility. The kids wing over the garage with multiple bunk beds and a murphy bed was a favorite spot. We loved having the tennis courts and pools nearby and spent several hours exploring the trails. We even played Bocci ball on the courts near the pool. All in all, we had a great time and the house certainly made that possible. Thank you!

Lovely setting!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent communication from the owner pre and post trip. Slept 3 families comfortably. Setting is overly private at the end of a culdesac and very cool architecture. Check owner policy on garbage and recycling at the end of the stay. Otherwise great trip!

Nice house, but poorly maintained. Big spiders found around house, dead rat in bath.

  • 1 of 5

Worst customer service I have ever seen. Acts all nice, but after renting, she takes some of money saying some things we dint do when God knows it is not true.

Very big spiders in lot of rooms scared so many people. On top of that, kid went to shower and saw dead rat!!! Unbelievable. We are completely non smokers for life, when she says out of the blue they found cigarette bud in trash in garage which we never used and we were charged for smoking.. which we never did...we never used their garbage cover at all . We used our own white one. And we had to haul all the trash ourselves in the end to a different​ place... Theirs was all black. Overall cunning to take money from you. If I were you, I would look for a better house. Not worth the hassle. Money snatcher. We were not notified anywhere there is another 100 dollars on top of all this!! for parking and using the place! Be ware that she wants to keep more of the deposit money. Falsely accused and charged us $200 on top of the parking $100. Entrance steps were not cleaned, it was all mulchy and pine leaves, and very slippery and dangerous. And all the scare kids and us went through in this house.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry this guest felt the need to write such a negative review. In our defense, this guest did not read the information that was provided prior to check-in that clearly states that Black Butte Ranch charges a daily fee. This fee does not go to the homeowner, but is used by the ranch to maintain common areas. This guest also, states that they did not smoke, however, our cleaner found cigarettes in the garbage and in the garage. It is clearly stated in our rental contract that smoking is prohibited and can result in the forfeiture of the whole $1000 security deposit. This guest also felt that it was within their right to re-arrange the furniture without returning it to its original place. Our house keeper was unable to move the king sized bed on her own, which required us to bring someone else in to move it. Not only is it inconsiderate, but it damaged the bed as it should have had the mattresses removed in order to move the frame. The $200 we kept back from the security deposit was for these reasons. This winter was particularly rough at the ranch and we have had a lot more spiders than normal. I think a mouse may have also come in to escape the cold and died. The weather was still very cold and icy while these guests were there and we had not had any exterior cleanup done (due to the unusually harsh winter). We are not perfect, but we are very reasonable.
