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, a 61'' big screen 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),
Barlow Trail Rendezvous Days and more
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.
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.
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.
