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.

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.

The house was perfect. Beautiful setting, funky approach through a truck yard, but you get over that quickly. Other than a slow and loud coffee maker (pretty picky, I know) the house worked out great for 11 guys on a mountain bike/hike/fishing holiday. Can't wait to come back next year.

Thanks.

Awesome Bend Vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Rick's house is so beautiful. Set right on the Deschutes river, 10 minutes from downtown/old mil district. Just a 5 min walk and you're right on the river. 5 bedrooms and 5 baths makes this ideal for large groups of people. 2 big decks and 2 car garage. Bathrooms stocked with Soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and toilet paper. No need to bring those things. Movie room is awesome! We watched some football, soccer, and movies in it. BBQed on the upper deck a few times and played pool. There is a home theatre system that pumps through the entire house. Adjustable in each main area by a knob on the wall. Sound carries a bit in the house with the concrete floors. Bothered others more than me, but still you can't beat it. Orginally we were going to bring 3 dogs, and Rick was very accomodating. We only ended up bringing 1 dog and he just loved venturing down to the river with us. We will definitely be staying again! Check out the cycle pub if you're coming to town, it's pretty awesome!

Great vacation home for large groups

Brought my ten golf buddies to this home for our annual golf trip. This place was exquisite. Close to downtown, right on the Deschutes, modern, spacious, and plenty of sleeping room. Furnished nicely and the owner was excellent to work with. Thank you !

Rock Star Mansion

  • 5 of 5
We travelled to Bend, OR for a mountain bike trip for my husband's 40th birthday. There were 11 adults, plus 3 x infants in our group. Rick's place was magnificent, a really luxurious, yet homey place. Big open plan kitchen / living room / dinning room perfect for cooking up big group dinners (excellently equipped kitchen), while looking after the babies. As a group we could splinter off into little groups while all being together in the same space.
Tons of luxury touches - hot tub on the deck, huge TV in the living room, plus a cinema screening room, pool table, arcade games machine, granite counter tops in the kitchen, just a really beautiful place.
The master bedroom was the size of our entire house, with a HUGE deck, a massive en suite with jacuzzi tub and walk in shower, and another huge walk in dressing room.
For the non-bikes, we were a 10 minute drive to Bend town centre, and tons of breweries. Also just 5 minutes to Trader Joes (a real treat for us Canadians), and huge box stores if that's your thing.
I would LOVE to stay in Rick's place if we are ever returning to Bend, and would encourage anyone to do so. It really was magnificent, and dealing with Rick was such a pleasure. He always responded promptly to my emails, and was so friendly and accommodating. Amazing, amazing. THANK YOU RICK! We had such a fantastic stay.

Great House

  • 4 of 5
This was a great house for a large group. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. The only reason there's not 5 stars is because we had a bit of trouble getting in touch with the Owner, as he was out of the country. Besides that, it was a great rental experience. House is just as pictured. Very comfortable layout with all the amenities. The central Bend location couldn't be better with a gorgeous view of the river outside almost every window. One thing worth mentioning was the lack of a garbage disposal in the sink. We were very careful not to let any food clog up the drain, but for future ease of use, I would imagine this would be a worthwhile investment. We weren't able to get the stereo to work with our iphone either, even though the manual said it would accept an ipod..a better setup here would've been great. Besides that it was an awesome house with everything we needed.

Owner's Response: I will make better preparations next time I leave the country. It was frustrating for me not to be able to use my phone to help Abby and her group. Unfortunately, the music system malfunctioned - it has since been repaired.
It seems odd to many people that my home doesn't have a garbage disposal. This is a choice, not an oversight. They clog, they smell, they are noisy, and it's one more thing that breaks. Ideally food waste should be composted. If that's not an option, the landfill is the next best - not the water treatment plant.
