Sisters House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Welcome to our family's vacation retreat! We love our home away from home, but our lives are too busy to visit it as much as we would like. We are a family of six; two parents and four busy, active kids! For the time being, we have decided to share it with other outdoor enthusiasts who appreciate the beauty of Central Oregon. We trust that our guests will treat our home with the care and concern as if it were their own. We aim to provide our guests with a comfortable and relaxing stay and a desire to return!
People often want to know what our favorite time of year to be in Central Oregon is. Can I answer EVERY day? Because every season offers something unique and wonderful. The summers are hot and dry, making the pool that much more inviting. Sisters has its Rodeo in early June, its Quilt Show in July, art shows and festivals throughout the summer and fall, followed by the Harvest Faire and Holiday Parades. Before you know it, it's January and that means SNOW and lots of it! Along with gorgeous scenery come opportunities for skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and more. Sisters has a strong local community that organizes concerts and benefits throughout the year, featuring well known artists and performers.
We love to shop in downtown Sisters. Christmas shopping, Ray's grocery store that seems to have everything, including a wonderful selection of craft beers, DVD rentals, gourmet items for wonderful meals; antiquing, new and used books. Speaking of books, the outstanding Paulina Springs Bookstore is about as good as it gets. Readers appreciate the staff recommendations and will find books that speak to their hearts and feed their souls. Across the street is our fabulous Sisters Coffee Company. Enter and take it all in, the aromas of coffee and baked goods, the enormous log construction, friendly baristas, inviting fire in the fireplace and comfortable furniture that invites you to sink in for hours.
You can't visit without seeing a movie at the charming Sisters Movie House. You will love it! It's our favorite place to see both first run films as well as independent films that appeal to the discerning folks that live and visit here. Even the popcorn, snacks and beer sold here are good. Come early to browse the art, quilts and sculptures in the lobby.

About Katrina Thomas
We feel so fortunate to have a place to go and relax, where there is almost nothing to do but read, hike, ski, cook, play and eat!! We know we will be re-charged and and well rested simply from taking in the mountain air, beautiful surroundings. Falling asleep in the luxurious beds doesn't hurt either! It's all a simple reminder that Life Is Good!!
Katrina Thomas purchased this house in 2006
Why Katrina Thomas chose Sisters
We found ourselves spending much of our leisure time going to Central Oregon, and why not? It has so much to offer. We loved staying at the Best Western Ponderosa Lodge in Sisters, but it was a little crowded for all of us. One weekend we decided to shop some homes with a realtor and with one look inside this one - we were HOOKED! It soon became ours and we love it!
What makes this house unique
It's quiet, comfortable and perfect. We can go out our back door to the Deschutes National Forest, turn right (north) and keep walking, completely through forest to Canada. Turn left, head south to Mexico. All without crossing any private property. Amazing. Not that we've done it, but YOU can!
