Overview

Bend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

You'll love this one of a kind house, located in a one of a kind spot!

The 4000 sq. ft. home is in a gated subdivision on the Deschutes River. The back looks out at the river and across to the river trail where bikers and hikers pass by throughout the day. With no houses across the river, it feels like you're out in the country, but you're right in town!

The main level is mostly great room with huge picture windows looking out to the river. The spacious kitchen with seating at the marble island is a natural gathering spot - and cooks will love the fully equipped kitchen with high end appliances including a 6 burner gas cooktop. The other side of the great room is the living area which has a gas fireplace and 70' HD TV with surround sound. Stepping outside onto the main deck, you will find yourself looking down on one of the prettiest sections of the Deschutes River. This is a fabulous place to spend the evenings. The sun sets early behind Awbrey Butte so there is a long twilight. Also on the main level is a full bathroom and an office/bedroom with a queen size bed.

Upstairs are two bedrooms. One is a nice sized bedroom with a queen bed and its own full bath. The other is the master. It's very spacious with a king bed, sitting area, and a huge private deck out over the roof. The bathroom is over the top with dual sinks, walk-in shower, jetted bath, and a washer and dryer.

Go downstairs to the lower level and you'll find yourself in the game room. It has a full size pool table, arcade games, pub table and chairs, couches, a 40' TV and great views of the river. Adjacent to the game room, there is a spacious bedroom with a terrific river view and a queen size bed. There is also a huge bunk room with two sets of bunkbeds and a queen bed. Further back you'll find a theater with a 100' screen and high quality surround sound. There's a PlayStation 3 that's really cool on the big screen with the surround sound. Rounding out the bottom level are two full bathrooms. The best part of the basement level is the covered granite patio overlooking the river. Watch the wildlife while you enjoy the shade on a warm summer day; or soak in the hot tub after skiing in the winter.

About Rick Gordon

I'm a carpenter / general contractor. I moved to Bend from Hawaii with my wife who grew up here. Since I like to golf, snowboard, and mountain bike I can't think of a better place to live.

Rick Gordon purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick Gordon chose Bend

This house is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning, work, and a little luck. A friend found the lot while visiting one of the neighbors. I couldn't believe that there was a lot on the river that was so conveniently located yet didn't even feel like it was in town. After considering a partnership with him to do a spec home, my wife and I decided to buy it for ourselves. Four years and many plans later, we finally started building. We finally moved in February of 2010. Unfortunately, my wife passed away from cancer. Suddenly I found myself with this huge house that is too much for my son and me. Since I love this house too much to sell, I decided to finish off the basement and make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy it. Of course, I also like that I can come use it still.

This house has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at same house! Rick is a great host, house works perfect for our girl's golf weekend. The view is to die for and the location couldn't be any easier to get wherever we need to go! I recommend this house for large groups for any type of occasion.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

As other reviews have mentioned, the house is fantastic. We had two families of four, with four of those being teenagers (and two dogs!), spending Spring Break Week in the house. The full kitchen, game room, home theater, hot tub and space to spread out over three levels was perfect for our group. Between the adults and the kids, every amenity was used (including the Ping-Pong table in the garage.) The location was a big plus as well: right on the river, yet convenient for walks via Sawyer Park, close to downtown and shopping/groceries.

A few points about the house and Bend -

- Downtown/Old Mill District: We drove downtown but if you had your own bikes/helmets I believe it would be a short ride on the river trail. The house has a few bikes but no helmets. Also, the adults did an afternoon Bend Brew Bus tour, with the house being located in the pickup/drop-off radius.

- North End/East Side: Very short drive to a north side mall (Cascade Village?) Recommend looking for Pono Farms butcher shop in that area if you plan to use the grill. A bit farther than downtown is the East side with Costco, Safeway and such.

- Lava Lands/Sunriver: A relatively short drive to Newberry National Volcanic Monument and Sunriver. Maybe another 30 minutes or so from there to Paulina Peak, Newberry Caldera, and the Obsidian flow.

- Smith Rock: This was about a 45 minute or so drive from the house for some great hiking and views.

As a last point, we had some minor issues that Rick was very quick to come out and address. Overall, it's a nice retreat if you're looking to stay in or a great base for exploring. We recommend it -- it's the first place we'd consider on a return to Bend with a group that size.

A wonderful stay in a beautiful and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very impressive, the pictures do not do it enough justice! We slept 10 very comfortably and never felt crowded. There is a deck on all three levels that soak up the afternoon sun and creates a perfect BBQ environment. There is a short walk to Sawyer Park with a nice foot bridge and access to the Deschutes river trail. Getting downtown is a snap and going to the grocery store is almost walkable. I would definitely recommend this place to all of my friends and colleagues.

Great house to celebrate big events

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for us to throw a 40th birthday party. We had 6 couples coming in and had no trouble fitting everybody. Never felt cramped or crowded. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. Excellent views and comfortable furniture. The hot tub was nice and warm and the pool table was in good condition (unlike some places I've stayed). The kitchen is well equipped for cooking a meal for 12. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood that is gated. The best part is the close location to all the great restaurants downtown.

We did have a problem with the theater room, but the owner informed us a few days ahead of arriving and discounted the price of the house. The only other slightly negative thing I might say is the coffee maker needs to be replaced. We had some issues with it working slowly or not working at all.
