EXTRAORDINARY RIVERFRONT HOME NEXT TO BIKING, HIKING & FISHING

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.

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

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.

Bend Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My group of six adults, five teenagers, and two dogs all had a great time at this house. It was large enough and private enough that no one felt cramped. Having a video room, pool table, ping pong table, bicycles, and board games were great features for the kids. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and there was a spare refrigerator in the garage that accommodated the overflow food and beverages. If you are into cooking as my group is, remember to bring a sharp knife which seems to be needed at nearly every VRBO. The location was very quiet and private - I think I saw a neighbor once in our four-day stay. The nearby trail along the river was a popular attraction for our active group. An advantage of this house is the local presence of the owner. Rick responded immediately to an issue with the water heater. Except for a broken stair tread, the house was in very good shape and clean. We definitely recommend this house to other travelers.

Beautiful Home, Wonderful vacation!

I can not speak highly enough of this property and the owner. He was so very kind and personable through the entire process. We had five adults in our party, and enjoyed every minute in this beautiful Bend home. It was quiet, clean and spacious. We all had our own bathroom and bedroom, which was wonderful.
Spending the day on the amazing slopes of Mt Bachelor and than coming home to relax in hot tub over looking the river- life doesn't get much better than that.
We rarely went out to eat as there is a fully stocked, spacious and fantastic kitchen. While waiting for dinner to be ready, we could throw on a sweatshirt and hang out the upper deck. The garage was huge! Parked our cars in there, and kept all of your ski gear there as well. It was heated, so you never went out to a cold car or gear.
Old Bend is short drive away and the mountain is only about a 1/2 hr drive. If you were there in the summer, you could walk right down to the river or over to the walking path across the river (we actually did that- beautiful!) You need a car though- there is not anything in walking distance (food, restaurants, bars etc)
I could easily go on and on about this home, every detail was perfect. I highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful Home in Bend

We (10 adults, 3 babies, 2 dogs) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The house served as a "home base" that we all would gather at in the mornings and evenings for breakfast, dinner and unwinding after the day's activities. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need to prepare dinner for a crowd.

A short drive to downtown, hiking or skiing - this more that served our needs. We will definitely book again.

Our group of 10 had a great stay. The house is well designed & built on a perfect location with beautiful view of the river. Great job of providing more than enough kitchenware, linens, amenities and entertainment options for both adults and kids between the game room, theatre room, garage games and main living room. Also plenty of space for everyone to have their own BR & Bathroom. Would definitely make this a top choice should we visit Bend again! Many thanks Rick!

Be prepared for a full WOW factor. This house is nicer than it looks in the pictures...
The view, the size, the kitchen, the game room, the bedrooms, the master bath, the home theater.......music throughout the house, heated garage, great location (on trails, on the river, close to the highways, close to downtown...this place has it all. My only problem is that it is so nice, I hope we do not have a hard time making more bookings, because we are absolutely coming back!!!!
I also must add that the owners are extremely nice, and great to work with.
If there was 10 stars, I would give them all!!!!
Best in Bend.......
