About the property

Home (3500 Sq Ft) 4 Bd, 2.5 Bth, Sleeps 12

This luxurious central Oregon home is situated on 5 quiet private acres with gated access. The house is about 3500 sq ft with a beautiful gourmet kitchen, informal and formal dining, breakfast bar, living room, family room, office, 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. This home sleeps up to 10 people maximum.

All the bedrooms are on the 2nd story of this house. Master has a King Bed and peek-a-boo views of the mountains with a deck and spiral staircase that goes down to the hot tub. Two more bedrooms have queen beds and the 4th bedroom has a full bed with a twin daybed and trundle.

Outside the home there is an expansive paver patio with built in BBQ, outdoor seating, fire pit and the delightful sound of the bubbling water feature.

For the young at heart, a lighted sport court with two basketball hoops and a 'tennis option', and a small faux putting green.

While in the country, we are still in a 'residential' area and 'Quiet Hours' are strictly enforced from 10 pm to 8 am. Sport court is 'closed' after 10 pm. This is NOT a party house. It is extremely important to us that all renters honor our neighbors by keeping noise/music at courteous levels all the time. Loud house parties are strictly prohibited.

About Rachel Harpham

Tom and Rachel fell in love with the quiet and beauty of the Tumalo area and yet appreciate the close proximity to both Bend and Sisters. They love to spend time with family and friends and have hosted several family reunions here. This truly is our Oasis in the High Desert. Come see why we love it so!

Rachel Harpham purchased this house in 2004

Why Rachel Harpham chose Central Oregon

We fell in love at first sight. We envisioned this property as a place where people would gather, share life, and create memories. Torn between Sisters and Bend... we just love both places... what better place than the Tumalo area which has access to both?! Easy to get to either place but also delightful just to hole up and go nowhere.

What makes this house unique

This property has an incredible outdoor space that the whole family will enjoy. Hot tub, sport court/putting green/propane BBQ/water feature/fire pit.

Home sleeps up to 12.

Beautiful, comfy, fully-loaded palace

  • 5 of 5

A group of us visited Bend earlier this month. This house comfortably accommodated our whole group. House was fully loaded with everything you could possibly need, and then some:

spacious kitchen, barbecue, tennis / basketball court. The host was very gracious and accommodating to our needs. Highly recommend!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed! The sport court and hot tub was amazing after a day exploring Bend and Redmond. It was nice staying outside of the towns, but still very accessible.

Good times in Beautiful Bend

  • 4 of 5

Park like surroundings welcome you as you enter this lovely property. The house has everything the renter needs to both play and relax while visiting.

A game on the sport court, happy hour on the terrace, a nice dinner from the grill, great conversation around the fire pit, and a relaxing soak in the hot tub before turning in for the night. What more could you ask for.

Needs some attention

  • 2 of 5

The home was comfortable for our family. The house needs some maintenance. Garbage compactor wasn't working properly. Barbecue has a gas leak, flames coming out below the barbecue. Weeds growing out of the patio pavers. Tile falling off from around the fireplace

pit. The play structure as pictured on VRBO is not there. I found that most disappointing, as that was a decision breaker on this home for

my granddaughter to enjoy. The furnishings inside the home are beautiful.

Owner's Response: Our home and your experience in our home is very important to us. As absentee owners, we rely on our maintenance crew, our landscape crew, our cleaning crew and feedback from renters, so we can address issues in a timely manner. We appreciate all the feedback offered here and are proactively addressing each one. I completely forgot to remove the picture of the swing set when this spring, we had to make the sad decision to remove it from the property for the safety of our renters. I have now removed all those pictures. We have addressed the weeds on the back pavers with our landscape crew... so unacceptable! We rely on them to keep the outdoor spaces looking great! And we were not happy to hear this was not happening. We have contacted the appropriate service people to take care of the fire pit, the BBQ and the trash compactor. We very sad to receive this review, but also very glad to be able to address the problems. Managing a home from a distance definitely has it's challenges. We hope that you will still consider visiting, in spite of this review. We still think our home is a beautiful spot to enjoy Central OR. We certainly appreciate hearing ways that we can improve.

Great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

This property was absolutely fantastic! It was absolutely beautiful and offered so many amenities. The backyard was my absolute favorite we grilled out and the kids ran and played on the basketball court. It's just a quick 15 minutes to Bend and it was so nice to be away from the city and enjoy some privacy. Strongly recommend this place we'll definitely be back!!

The Tumalo area is conveniently situated between Bend and Sisters (about 8 miles to the north end of Bend and 16 miles from downtown Sisters and only 17 miles from the Redmond Airport). A quiet country setting with beautiful landscaping and surroundings. Miles of trail access nearby for walking or running or horse back riding. Check out Flyspur Ranch to schedule trail rides or if you would like to take in some fly fishing while you are in the area. Central OR is a great family vacation destination.
