Located in a rural development 12 mi. south of Prineville, 5 mi. north of the popular Prineville Reservoir State Park, this home offers 2 bedrooms, a bonus room with sleeper sofa, 1.5 baths, 2 balconies, a patio, grill, and views from every window.
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 well behaved pets, but we do ask that you control dogs romping inside to prevent damage to our hardwood floors and 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.
