Tygh Valley House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Bunk Area, Sleeps 8

This great Lake Front home is a wonderful place to spend time with your family and friends. The house has an open floor plan with a wall of south facing windows offering wonderful views of the large deck, the big front yard, the lake and beautiful sunrises. The living area has a lot of comfortable furniture, TV with direct TV and a 200 disk CD player with an eclectic mix of about 150 CDs and both indoor and outdoor speakers. The kitchen has new appliances, plenty of counter space and is equipped with a very large variety of pots and pans, dishes, cookware, BBQ gadgets, utensils and so much more. The master bedroom has a deluxe king size pillow top bed. The second bedroom has two full size beds. Part of the garage is set up as a detached dorm room with twin bunk beds, a twin bed and two couches, this makes a great place for kids to hang out. The yard has 102 feet of lake frontage and a seasonal dock for parking your boat and other water toys.

So much to do!: Pine Hollow reservoir offers a lot of recreational activities. There is great fishing in the reservoir we called it catching because it was a rare day we didn't bring in at least a trout or two and usually a whole stringer full. Fishing is allowed on the lake year round and the lake is kept well stocked. In the summer from July 1st to Labor Day the speed limit is lifted and it is time to pull out the wave runners, skis, wake boards and tubes and as my husband said troll the kids around the lake. If you don't have your own toys, wave runners, fishing boats and a party barge are available for rent at the nearby Pine Hollow Lakeside Resort. If you enjoy hiking or biking the Mt Hood National forest is just a few miles away. Historical places nearby include Shaniko and the Barlow trail. The house is just a 20 minute drive to Maupin for great white water rafting on the Deschutes River.

Just bring your food, clothes and toys: Our home has everything you will need for a great weekend getaway or a longer vacation retreat. When we moved from Pine Hollow to the Caribbean, we had to leave everything behind, so the house is extremely well stocked. My husband is a BBQ enthusiast and I enjoyed baking, so you will find specialty equipment and a lot of supplies on hand. We also did a lot of entertaining so the house is equipped with large serving platters and bowls and plenty of glasses including wine glasses, margarita glasses, shot glasses and plastic outdoor glasses. Also available for our guests use are air mattresses, life jackets and four lounge chairs for enjoying the sun in the yard or floating on the lake.

Perfect Place to Make Memories: My family and I, spent almost every weekend and school break at The Lake House. We have a lot of fun memories of times spent with family and friends. Every year we had Memorial Day weekend and 4th of July barbecues, and a girls only weekend every June, when the girls and I would lay in the sun all day drinking blender drinks and then spend the evenings playing games and eating chocolate. At Christmas we would head out to the National Forest in search of the perfect Christmas Tree to fit the 12 foot vaulted ceiling and spend the days baking everyone's favorite Christmas treats which filled the house with the wonderful smells of a fresh cut tree and cookies.

The local businesses and groups offer some yearly events including

Adult and Children's Fishing Derbies,

Lawn Mower Races,

Wasco County Fair with evening rodeos and a Sunday afternoon demolition derby,

Garage sales (especially on Memorial Day weekend),

Pancake breakfasts,

VFW Barbecues,

Barlow Trail Rendezvous Days and more

About Dawn Ditmore

My husband and I are currently fulfilling a life long dream to live in the Caribbean. We moved to Rincon, Puerto Rico in March of 2011.

Dawn Ditmore purchased this house in 2000

Why Dawn Ditmore chose Tygh Valley

I am very biased about this home. I love everything about it, some of my best memories took place here. The open living area and kitchen made entertaining family and friends easy and fun.

What makes this house unique

Nature and endless views right out your front window. Wake up to a beautiful sunrise, watch the deer and geese walking by and through the yard, see the eagles and osprey out fishing, and know when the fish are biting. It is all happens right in front of the house.

Amazing, relaxing and overall wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

Very impressed with the property and the house. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. Rooms are a good size and the kitchen is set up very well. The only reason it didn't get a 5 is because of no WIFI. I think we have a new Family Tradition. Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review, I am glad you enjoyed the house. I had mixed thoughts on the wifi and finally decided against it at the lake house. It is just too often the family all had their noses buried in their devices and it was nice to actually talk, play games and spend time together without the distraction. Wifi is available less than a mile away at Angler's restaurant.

Quiet & Perfect

Our family stayed here over the Christmas Holiday. It was an amazing time! It was like we had the whole lake to ourselves. Steve came over right away and asked if we needed anything, then we never saw him again. Steve, you should have came back for some ham! The house was just the right size for our family, watching the sun rise in the morning was awesome! I have never saw so many Deer in my whole life. We WILL be booking again. Thank you for a great Holiday!

Amazing vacation and great memories!

This property is so amazing I have hesitated to write a review to keep it our little secret! We have stayed here the past 2 years around the end of June beginning of July. This home is beyond words with all the amenities and breath taking view of the lake from the deck. Nothing better than waking up and drinking coffee on the deck in the morning. Our kids are 8 and 11 and they are in the lake all week and love coming. We celebrated my son's 11th birthday here this year. The owners are amazing to coordinate with and Steve who cares for the property is awesome. The neighbors are super friendly and we cannot wait to come back!!!!! Thank you Ron and Dawn for sharing your home with families so they can have great memories at Pine Hollow……...

Our favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation at this perfect getaway. The house is clean and comfortable. We only had one brief storm which was awesome to watch from the front porch out to the lake. Otherwise the weather was perfect for fishing and even some swimming. The fire pit is a great place to unwind with a drink just steps from the waters edge. The owners and caretaker are the nicest people and work to make every stay enjoyable. 3rd time here and already planning our return.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at Pine Hollow! The home and location is beautiful! Such incredible views, sunrises and sunsets with the lake at your front door. A birders and fisherman's paradise! The home is well appointed with every possible convenience you could hope for including a very impressive spice cabinet for creating delicious gourmet meals! We used the home as a 'base camp' and drove to Multnomah Falls, Horsetail Falls and around Mt. Hood for some spectacular photographic opportunities, then headed out to the Painted Hills of Oregon on another jaunt.

It was such a treat to come "home" and enjoy a glass of wine while sitting on the fabulous deck overlooking the lake. Of all the vacation homes we've stayed in, we cannot remember one as comfy, welcoming and well appointed as this is! We are definitely coming back to Pine Hollow ourselves and hope to plan a family reunion there in the near future. The owners are very easy to work with and very responsive to your needs. There is a caretaker "one minute" away should you need absolutely anything. (which we didn't but it was nice to know he was there!) All in all, this was one of our most memorable vacations and I highly recommend it to those seeking a special getaway!

Our home is located about 2 hours from Portland, 40 minutes south of The Dalles and 20 minutes north of Maupin. Here you can enjoy the great weather of central Oregon. Pine Hollow is in a rain shadow, meaning the rain clouds coming from the west are broken up by Mt. Hood and don't reform until after they have passed over our area. Pine Hollow has less rainy and cloudy days than on the west side of the cascades and is normally 10 degrees warmer than Portland in the summer months.

Other Activities: The house is only 20 minutes from Maupin, where there are a number of white water raft companies offering fun 1/2 day and all day trips down the Deschutes River. The Wasco County Fair in Tygh Valley is held on the third weekend in August. This is a great little county fair with rodeo events Friday and Saturday nights and a demolition derby Sunday morning and afternoon.

Golf: Pine Hollow Golf Course is open seasonally. This is a fun little 9 hole course with carts available.

Ski: About a 45 minute drive to Government Camp.
