About Kathy Power

We welcome you to 'The Pines'! Owned and operated by Bill and Joan, and Dave and Kathy Power, it is our family vacation home and we wish to share it with you!!

We've been blessed with great careers, good health, a wonderful family and many dear friends!!! Our motto is 'WORK HARD, PLAY HARDER'!

We asked ourselves, if we could invest in our future and the future of our children and their children, what might the best investment be??? The answer seemed perfectly clear to Dave (my husband) as we passed this wonderful cabin again and again!! 'That's it!', he'd exclaim, as we'd continue driving, searching for a lesser home. 'That's it, that's the one!' So we finally pulled in and peaked around. As it turned out, it really was it!!!!

Dave and I reside in Salem where we work together with our twin son's Jake and Josh, at our family business Dave Power Automotive and Marine.

I'm also a Realtor, specializing in the Sisters area, as well as Detroit, Salem, Stayton, Sublimity, Turner, Aumsville and surrounding areas!

Our daughter Chelsea, is a licensed massage therapist!

She fell in love with the high desert and resides in Bend, (and her massage services come highly recommended!) with advance notice, she may be available to provide on site massage!

Bill and Joan live in Sisters. They fell in love with Central Oregon first, having resided here back in the '60's After working as a teacher and scientist in the Salem area for over 30 years, they returned to beautiful Central Oregon to enjoy the sunshine and scenery!

Collectively, we've been married over 98 years! Our son, Jake married his beautiful bride, Jenny in a delightfully picturesque backyard wedding (here) in August 2014! Soon there will be 100 years of wedded bliss between us'

What makes this house unique

I love waking up to deer, a blanket of snow on the ground or nonstop sunshine,, and the wind whispering through the Ponderosa Pines. It is situated on a half acre, in lovely Tollgate, a peaceful, family friendly neighborhood just 5 minutes from the heart of downtown Sisters!

The proximity to everything Central Oregon has to offer -Suttle Lake, Fly fishing the Metolius, hiking to the head of Jack, Mt Washington, Black Butte,The Willamette National Forest, Hoodoo, Mt. Bachelor, Bend, Smith Rock, High Desert Museum, fishing, hiking, biking, golfing, high mountain lakes, exploring, spelunking, hot springs, streams, and delightful downtown Sisters were the deciding factors in our selection of this wonderful location.

You won't want to leave, we never do.

Perfect cabin in the woods for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded our expectations. It's even better than the pictures! We enjoyed a week stay with a white Christmas. The cabin had everything needed for 7 of us; plenty of room with comfortable beds, couches and chairs. The cabin is warm, inviting and so relaxing. The owner was wonderful and helped make the whole process very easy. The cabin is in a beautiful area with homes nearby, but not too close. There are wonderful walking paths, gorgeous trees and a close drive to the town of Sisters. The open floor plan for the kitchen, dining room and living room made it ideas for our family. All the appliances worked beautiful. I would highly recommend this cabin in the woods. We would definitely return.

Family Wedding & mini reunion

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were happy with the driveway / outside and overall great location. When we stepped inside we felt cozy right away, though the living room looked small it really wasn't. We had 5 adults & a couple small children, there was room for all. Then we were so pleased when we saw the outside, back deck w/two picnic tables, fenced yard & bbq....upstairs did not disappoint either. All in all it was a very comfortable place. The access to Sisters was perfect. I would definitely recommend it!

Summer retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not one to write reviews, but my family and I have stayed at this cabin so many times and LOVED it so much, that I had to write one.

We have stayed at this log cabin both in the winter and summer. The winter being my favorite as my family loves to have a white christmas and is obsessed with the snow. It's awesome to wake up to the snow falling and look out the window to see deer walking through the front yard as you sip your morning coffee. The yard is huge for kids to play and they have a big dog kennel for your pets that even has a doggy door to an inside kennel to keep them warm on cold nights. Each room has it's own tv and DVD player with beautiful log furniture. We even found games upstairs that the kids enjoy playing and table tennis in the garage. In the summer they have a rec center with a swimming pool and basketball court along with bike trails/walking trails that run through the neighborhood. It's a four bedroom cabin so plenty of space for family and friends. My favorite being the master bedroom as it is a retreat in itself.

One of the reasons we love this cabin is because of the location. The town of sisters is a beautiful small town with probably the most amazing coffee you will find just about anywhere. It's close to Mt. hoodoo where my family loves to snowmobile and other areas that are great for playing in the snow. It's also right next to black butte ranch and suttle lake. Not to mention it's also near Bend which is it's own adventure playground. I've always wanted to go white water rafting and I hear the deschutes river is where it's at.

In the end this Cabin is absolutely beautiful inside and out. It can be your quiet oasis or the place you put your feet up at night after a long day of fun. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The customer service is amazing! Kathy has always been so sweet answering all of my questions and we have never had any complaints. My family and I will continue to create new memories in this beautiful home in the years to come.

Thanks again for opening up your beautiful home to me and my family! We always have such a great time!!

We loved our visit, the yard and number of rooms was perfect. The decor was authentic and location was centralized, we would have liked to have cable and Internet access, that made last minute wedding planning a little harder. Would recommend for friends looking to escape work/tv for the great outdoors

vacation

  • 4 of 5

This home is excellent for a large group and family vacations. My family was so comfortable in this home for a long weekend. The open floor plan that expands out into the backyard was so enjoyable. Even when you are in the kitchen you feel connected to the outside. Everything we needed was provided and in great shape. Fantastic master bedroom and great natural light. My family plans on returning and I would love to have my girlfriend get away in this wonder full home. Thank You very much for using it as a vacation home. I totally had a relaxing weekend and was not ready to return home. So appreciate that this home is as advertised. Have had a few disappoints and this one is accurate.
