About Kathy Power

We welcome you to our Sisters Home- 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'

Why Kathy Power chose Sisters

New leather reclining furniture in the living room,

New granite, and stainless appliances in the kitchen, juniper and aspen furniture sprinkled throughout, a covered porch that extends 3/4 of the way around the home! Deer pass by, eagles soar above, beckoning you to follow to the raw and natural beauty that is Central Oregon at it's finest!

Fly fish, window shop, eat, drink and be merry! Explore the Metolius, Suttle Lake, climb Smith Rock, visit the High Desert Museum, caldera, Black Butte, golf, swim, bike or hike, ski, snowshoe, waterski Explore!

Exhale, you're on vacation! Inhale the scent of pine and juniper!

There is a new adventure around every corner in Sunny Sisters Oregon!

Just check the calendar of events for fun and interesting activities and events!!

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.

Wonderful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for our family to gather for a wedding. There was plenty of room for everyone. There were many well appointed features including a huge fenced back yard. The kitchen was perfect, with many cooking utensils, that you would find at home. We couldn't have been happier! Thank you Kathy, for letting us enjoy your wonderful home...

Well cared for log cabin in the heart of great hiking

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 siblings and spouses gathering from across the country for hiking and fishing. The house was beautiful and well equipped. It is also close to town and hiking trails. The owner was efficient and a pleasure to work with. To top it all off, the weather was perfect. Really hard to beat.

Beautiful large comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion to see the solar eclipse and all of us loved the house and huge gorgeous backyard! Lots of toys & games included. Giant kitchen easily held our post-eclipse celebration. Bedrooms were comfortable, dark and quiet. Log home had stunning interiors. Highly recommended. Stores and gas only a mile away!

Great setup for dogs!

  • 5 of 5

There were just 2 of us during most of the stay but we rented the big house for almost 3 weeks because of the dog features and it was worth it! The huge fenced backyard was awesome and our 2 Labs were quite entertained by the deer regularly coming to visit. The really unique thing is the indoor (garage) kennel with dog door to outdoor dog run which allowed us to go do things nearby and leave our dogs in a safe and comfortable area. The lovely house is well equipped with everything you need including fast internet and excellent entertainment setup. The beautiful master suite is on the 2nd floor which was a bit challenging for our older arthritic dog to go up & down the stairs so note for those with mobility issues (one bed/bath is on the main floor so we stayed there part of the time). Our only other concern was the paperwork which was more difficult than the many other vacation rentals where we’ve stayed. Overall, we were thrilled with this property and its close location to the many things we enjoyed doing in the Sisters area (lots of bike riding, hiking, horseback riding, dining out, and shopping)!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location. Only a couple miles from the town of sisters. We were able to enjoy the area and yet have a quiet retreat to go to at night. The house itself was wonderful. We have rented many properties over the years and this house was the most well stocked that we have stayed in. There were plenty of towels, linens, cook ware, dishes for even the largest family. The porch and grass area allowed us unlimited places to sit and relax.
