About Joyce Towle

We are a family of 13 children who built this home as a place to get together after our mom died. We built it to accommodate large, extended family/groups like we are. Living space encourages great food, conversation and togetherness. Accommodates generation age groups very well!

Joyce Towle purchased this house in 1996

Why Joyce Towle chose Central Oregon

We love the large lots, high quality, low key lifestyle of Black Butte Ranch over the busy-ness and congestion of other resorts. There's lots to do here for everyone in a beautiful, tranquil setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We reserved this home for 3 couples. Everything was well stocked. We really enjoyed your home and the obvious thought and effort you put into it to make it comfortable. We loved the in-room vanities. Great way for individual couples to have addtional privacy...and they keep the 4 bathrooms from becomming a bottleneck. We hope to be back.

Great time at Black Butte

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been coming to Black Butte for 30 some years! This is the first time at this house, however, and it met our needs perfectly. The kitchen was well stocked and plenty of dishes, silverware and space for our group. The guys enjoyed the horse shoe pits, and we had lots of room for everyone at the table, plus using the small round table for the puzzles we all like to do while there. Had a nice easy walk around Fiddleneck and Bracken, and also not far to the lodge, meadow, Paulina Springs, etc. The owner was great to work with. This house will be on our list for next year!

Great for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This has the nicest common area of just about any home we've stayed at on the Ranch. The construction is so well done that the downstairs bedrooms are quiet even when people are walking around upstairs. Love the set up for badminton/volleyball and glad that we brought racquets/birdies - I didn't see any in the garage. Plenty of place to park cars and the deck easily accommodates a large group. Great to work with the owners as well. Thank you!!!

Terrific vacation home for any size group

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five adults and there was plenty of everything, esp space. This spot would work very well for a group of even 10 adults; lots of bdrms w/ bathrooms incl or adjoining. Wonderful kitchen with plenty of space and tons of cooking and eating utensils. We are looking forward to our next visit....

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week here - the living room/kitchen is open with lots of room for people to sit and talk, play games, have meals, cook all at the same time. It was also the most sound-proof home we have stayed in on the entire Ranch. We had several teenagers and they laughed into the night and didn't keep anyone up. There is a great set up in the grassy area in the back for badminton. We brought our own racquets and birdies but I think there were birdies there too. Lots of kitchen extras: crockpot, large skillet and TONS of silverware. We had steak one night and were a bit short of steak knives but we all get along so we shared :)

Really appreciated that is is a no smoking no pet house. It was VERY clean.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the house. It provided the perfect place for our extended family to hang out while we weren't at the pool, biking, hiking up Black Butte, playing golf, exploring Sisters, and visiting the Newberry Volcanic Monument. It was clean and well provisioned. They had badminton and horse shoes at the house that kept everyone entertained.
