About the property

Dramatic Two-suite Custom Home on the Little Deschutes River

The Riverfront home, located 7 miles south of Sunriver, was originally designed and built by a doctor to be his dream retirement retreat. It sits directly on the bank of the crystal-clear Little Deschutes River and has a feeling of secluded privacy that is nearly impossible to find these days, plus an inspirational mountain and river view. NOTE : During the period of Oct1 thru May 31 of each year, except for the Christmas Season, the special rate of $195.00/nite and every 3rd nite is FREE is in effect.

Riverfront has two large suites on opposite ends of the house, one with a King bed and full bath; the other with a Queen bed, Twin bunk-beds and a full bath. It is ideal for couples or for a family vacation.

The home features an open design with vaulted ceilings in all rooms, and the wall facing the river is all windows - 16 feet high and 60 feet across! Winter or summer, the outside views and daylight inside the home are wonderful, and one of the true pleasures in the world is to go two steps out the back door, slip into the big hot tub and gaze up at the millions of stars that are visible in our higher-elevation nighttime sky. **PLEASE NOTE** : The home will sleep six (6) comfortably. But due to the fact that one sleeping place is a bunk bed, three (3) couples really isn't going to work.

We have furnished the home with items that are far above the quality level of typical rentals. As examples, you will find thick pillow-top mattresses and goose down comforters on the beds, WiFi , a leather reclining couch, massaging recliner , large-screen TV's and VCR/DVD units in the living room and both bedrooms, and a Jenn-Air grille range in the kitchen.

In addition, you will find more than 50 movies and CD's, an excellent collection of books, field glasses for watching the wildlife, board games, pellets for the wood stove. "You have thought of everything!" is a frequent guest comment. We really try , and are always open for suggestions.

The large separate game room has a slate-bed pool table, a Foosball table, a professional arcade road-race game, exercise equipment, a real slot machine (with provided tokens), - to provide hours of entertainment for both kids and adults.

Outdoors, there are horseshoe pits and floats to use on the river for fun during the summer. The beautiful Quail Run golf course is less than one minute away, with a driving range and restaurant open throughout the golf season - April through October.

The activities of the popular Sunriver Resort are an easy 10-minute drive away, Bend is 20 minutes straight up Highway 97, and the town of La Pine is 10 minutes south. It is just 35 miles to Mt. Bachelor and there are more than a dozen high-mountain fishing and recreation lakes nearby (Crane Prairie, Wickiup, Paulina, Lava, Cultus, etc.).

Quiet, completely housebroken pets are welcome. This is doggy heaven, with large wooded areas to sniff, a river to swim in, squirrels that need exercising, and a nice dog run. Pets must be kept off the beds and furniture, and you are required to pick up after them outdoors.

We accept credit cards through the secure PayPal service.

Please call or email any questions you may have.

Amenities: Hot tub, regulation pool table, slot machine (free), road-race professional arcade game, exercise equipment, Jenn-Air range, outdoor BBQ, large TV's in bedrooms, washer/dryer, dishwasher, pellet stove, all kitchen gear and utensils., Goose down comforters on beds, Dog Run.

Activities: The Quail Run Golf Course and driving range is just 1 minute away. For skiing, Mt. Bachelor is nearby and often open until July. Snowmobile trails - 5 minutes to Newberry Crater. Famous Trout Lakes -Wickiup, Crane Prairie, Paulina, etc. The Little Deschutes has Brown and Rainbow Trout so you can fish from the 900 feet of riverbank right on the property. Raft float trips that begin or end at the home are also popular.

A beautiful escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just finished our second visit to Lucy's Cabin. We had a wonderful time. The house is comfortable and well appointed, and we just love sitting out by the river watching all of the birds. We took some wonderful close by hikes and drove to Sun River for dinner one night. I have already recommended this lovely cabin to many friends and highly recommend it here as well!

Great family memories

  • 5 of 5

I am a little late writing this review but the wonderful family times and memories made, still live on. What a beautiful home this is. Our children are grown, but it housed all 6 of us comfortably. Upon arrival, once you fill the bird and squirrel feeders with the home provided food, you sit back and reflex on the deck, and watch all the wildlife action start. A beaver even swam by one morning! The Weber BBQ was the tool to cook the tasty family meals, we brought our kayaks so having the Little Deschutes just out the back door made paddle adventures a breeze, the game room kept us busy, the local lakes were awesome for outdoor adventures and having Bend nearby provided wonderful shopping, pub and coffee shops and having the hot tub there to come home to, that we all fit in, to watch the incredible sunsets was amazing. Having our dogs with us made the vacation time complete. Thanks for opening up your home to those of us with fur kids. Thank you again!

Beauty on the riverfront

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we could have dreamed of when we booked. Nick and Debbie are the perfect hosts and the location on the riverfront was idyllic. We had many hours of bird watching and even saw a beaver snacking on willows along the river. Totally recommend.

Loved Lucy's

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Lucy's and we were more than satisfied with everything in and around the home. From its location we easily saw and did all the things we planned in Central Oregon: canoeing, hiking, exploring volcanoes, etc. Can't wait to go back for that hot tub on the deck and wildlife viewing.

San Francisco Bay Area

Truly a Little Corner of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We live and work in the increasingly crazy SF Bay Area and wanted (and NEEDED) some deep relaxation for Christmas week. We also wanted SNOW... and NEEDED a place where our furry "boys" could be with us - we can't always give them all the attention they deserve. We had been through the Bend area 18 months ago and saw all of the signs along the way for snowmobiling. We also knew the reputation that Central Oregon enjoys for outdoor recreation and splendor. So, we were ecstatic when we found Lucy's on VRBO! It answered all of our wants and needs. When we contacted Nick about timing, the only thing he couldn't guarantee was the snow. Imagine that :-)

Before we left, the forecasts for La Pine had been dicey for days and we drove through rain most of the way up. When we arrived on Sunday afternoon before Christmas, our boys started whistling and whining before we even turned into the driveway! They already knew Lucy's was something VERY SPECIAL.

We walked in the door and were immediately blown away by the warmth and hospitality that the place exudes. Lucy's is set up comfortably and is arranged on the property so it felt as though we were sitting right on the Little Deschutes River. Add to that, Nick and Debbie had left us a Christmas box for us with some regional goodies and a stocking for the boys with a couple of toys, which were a tremendous hit. We knew we had hit the jackpot!

The amenities at Lucy's are great. Everything works well and property is kept up nicely. There are a half dozen bird feeders that keep a wide variety of birds (including quail, blue jays, dove, chickadees, and flickers) and one industrious squirrel busy from dawn to dusk. On top of this, we saw a family of otters and a very wet juvenile bald eagle, all right out the wall-to-wall back windows. But, the real deal is outside. The next day, we took a short drive up to Mt. Bachelor for a great afternoon of snowmobiling. In spite of Nick's caution about snow, it arrived on Christmas Eve and we had a nice cover Christmas morning. It was magical all around.

We left feeling very relaxed and happy for the opportunity we had to spend 5 nights in a little corner of "Heaven on Earth". Like so many others who put their thoughts down here and in the guest book at Lucy's, we plan to be back!

Bob & Connee,

San Jose, California

The home is in the center of Oregon's top outdoor recreation area. Located in the 'rain shadow' of the Cascades, this area receives less than 10 inches of precipitation per year, mostly in the form of powder snow. The sunny and mild low-humidity climate is perfect for golfing, skiing, biking, etc. It is becoming a golfing destination, with more than 20 great courses available and more being built. Also, the Bend area is frequently listed as one of America's top places to retire - several of our guests turned their visit here into a home-hunting trip!

Other Activities: River Rafting, Cross-country skiing

Golf: Area: Approximate driving times: Seattle - 6.5 hours, Portland - 3 hours, San Francisco - 9 hours, Redmond Airport (RDM) - 45 minutes.
