Black Butte Ranch House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Stay close to nature and world-class golfing at this contemporary three-bedroom house in Black Butte Ranch, a family-friendly resort community about 10 miles northwest of Sisters. Surrounded by tall Ponderosa pines, you'll feel like you're at your own private resort retreat!
Walk into the bright and open living/dining room and take in the tall, vaulted ceilings, wood-burning fireplace set into rustic stone, just perfect for those chilly high desert nights. Snuggle up under a blanket on the tan leather couch while you use the provided WiFi to check email or sit and roast marshmallows on the stone bench hearth. This shared space also includes a lovely wooden dining table with benches and chair seating for eight.
The large kitchen has beautiful brand-new wood flooring and dark granite counters. There is a built-in desk area and a collection of cookbooks for culinary inspiration. Fully equipped for the gourmet with double ovens, a microwave, dishwasher and quality cookware, every meal will be a joy to create. There's even a blender for smoothies, cocktails, or - if you pick up some fresh veggies from the Bend Farmers Market - you can make a blended soup for dinner. The kitchen also includes a counter with four leather bar stools and a sunny eating nook. A different place to enjoy every meal of the day!
If you don't feel like cooking, there are plenty of options! The main lodge at Black Butte Ranch offers some of Central Oregon's finest views and is always a great place to catch the game in the bar. Sisters, just a short 20 minute drive from of the resort has delicious bakery, brewpub, and fine dining spots. Sisters Coffee Company on Hood Avenue features a homey, Old West feel and will fuel everyone up for the morning's game plan.
A comfy family room is all decked out with a flat-screen TV, DVD player, and a plush, sectional couch. Large picture windows give you a great view of the wooded yard for spotting wildlife even while you enjoy a movie. The nearby laundry/mud room has both deck and garage access, so there's a convenient place to leave your sports and hiking equipment for the next day's adventure. Just off the family room, a glass door leads to a spacious wrap-around deck, complete with a gas BBQ and patio furniture. It's an ideal place to grill steaks and relax at the end of the day!
Rounding out the main floor is the master bedroom with queen size bed and large bathroom with a sunken tub. End the day in style by soaking with a glass of fine Oregon wine in the bubbles. Upstairs, a large bedroom with tall ceilings awaits with another queen bed and a balcony to survey the one and a third acres of tree-lined property and enjoy a mug of morning coffee. A Jack-and-Jill bath separates an adjoining bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. In total, the three bedrooms and two and a half baths accommodate eight guests quite comfortably, making this house perfect for two couples with children traveling together.
You're just a short ride down the bike path to many resort amenities, including an indoor/outdoor pool, steam room, workout facilities, horseback riding, tennis courts, and so much more!
