About the Property
2000 Sq. foot home with 2 bedrooms, bonus room with sleeper, and 1.5 baths.
We built this two story, Cascade view home from our own design in order to maximize views. It sits on 5.5 acres of high desert landscape (mostly sage, juniper, and rabbit brush) and has views of Mt. Bachelor, the Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, and the profile of Smith Rock. Sunrises, sunsets, storms, and star-gazing can be spectacular.
Ample shade in the junipers behind the house provides a relaxing oasis after a day at the rodeo, the lake, or hiking and exploring. Picnic table and hammocks are available for this area.
The patio under the pergola has patio tables and chairs as well as a propane fire pit.
In the grass adjacent to the patio, there is a lovely porch swing, and it too has mountain views.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A LOW WATER USE AREA. We have a deep desert well that requires active water conservation. We ask that guests be conscientious about water use during their stay.
The house is not really appropriate for very young children. The window blinds, second story windows, kitchen cabinets, and electrical outlets do not have child-safety mechanisms. Second story balconies have inherent risks. The west side retaining wall with cactus is, well, a jumble of basalt with cactus ;-).
This is a great place for travelers with pets, but we do ask that you spend some extra time vacuuming, sweeping, and picking up after your pet outside. We cut the lawn bordering the house, etc., so poop pick up is much appreciated.

Please note the three day minimum stay off season and four day minimum summer. If you want to stay for less than the minimum days, you can do so by paying the the full minimum day rental day and leaving early. I recommend placing that "extra" day at the end of your stay in case you have a change of heart and want to extend by one day and make full use of your rented time. Sometimes we all just need that extra mental health day, right?

The house is located in a rural development 20 minutes south of Prineville, a town of 10,000. The house has good access to the following:
Prineville Reservoir State Park
Painted Hills National Monument
The house is far enough out of town to feel like a high desert retreat, but Prineville is just 20 minutes away, so you still have access to restaurants, golf, theaters, grocery stores, and a hospital.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Teacher, writer, photographer enjoying life on both sides of the Cascades.
Why the Owner Chose Prineville, OR, USA:
We searched for years to find the best weather and views on the east side of the Cascades, and this fit the bill. It gets less snow and rain than Bend, and you can see Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top, the Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, and the profile of Smith Rock from the house and patio. We bought bare land with an ancient trailer and saved for years to build the custom home. It is oriented for passive solar efficiency and to maximize views from every room. The remote location makes this a nice, quiet get away with fabulous, unobstructed views of the Cascades. However, its distance from Prineville (20 minutes) and Bend (about an hour), make it more suitable for those interested in exploring the Painted Hills, Smith Rock, and Prineville Reservoir than for those wanting to enjoy the Bend and Redmond area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will love the mountain views, sunsets and sunrises, and star-gazing. Storms too can be spectacular as you watch from their dry eastern edge. Deer and coyotes occasionally pass through the property. Mountain bluebirds, Western Kingbirds, and Ash-throated Flycatchers are plentiful.
