About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This is the ideal home for your Central Oregon getaway. It is spacious, comfortable, family-friendly, and in a prime location near the Lodge, swimming, golf, playgrounds, and bike trails. Black Butte Ranch has something to offer for everyone.

Our Home:

A beautiful, well-appointed home in the perfect setting. Three bedrooms, each with a king bed (one of which can be converted into two twins). Two full bathrooms, one with a tub/shower, and the other with a shower stall. Great-room style living area with vaulted living room, stone fireplace (wood pellet stove), large screen TV, full sound sytem, DVD/VCR, spacious dining area with a large table that seats 10-12, and well-stocked, open kitchen featuring granite counters and updated appliances. Full laundry room (brand-new washer and dryer) with extra refrigerator. Upstairs loft with full-size pool table and TV. The loft has plenty of space for our two queen-sized blow-up beds (great for the kids!). We have a large deck in the back that includes a propane barbecue, patio table and chairs, lounge chairs, and large professionally-maintained hot tub. We also have a very comfy hammock in the backyard--perfect for napping!

Sitting on the deck in the afternoons with a glass of wine, watching the wildlife and the occasional golfer--it's a wonderful way to end your day! And after the sun goes down, there's nothing like sitting in the hot tub and enjoying some star-gazing.

The Location:

Our home sits on the 8th tee box of Big Meadow Golf Course. Gorgeous views!!! We have a prime location that is close to many of Black Butte Ranch's activities and amenities. We are within walking distance of the kids' playground, Big Meadow clubhouse and restaurant, basketball courts, soccer field, sand volleyball court, the Lodge, tennis courts, Rec Barn (kids' activity/game center), the Lodge pool and bistro. Our home is surrounded by numerous bike/walking paths--we have several adult bikes at the house that are yours to enjoy.

This home has been our family's retreat for the last 15 years, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with you. We have so many wonderful memories of fun family times--holidays, summer vacations, weddings, birthdays, and more. It's the perfect spot for you to make memories with your family. We look forward to sharing this wonderful place with you.

About Karen Schmitt

Our family lives in Portland and for many years, we visited Black Butte Ranch, renting several different homes. As soon as we were able, we knew it was where we wanted our vacation home to be located. It was a wonderful decision, and we have had countless wonderful experiences there.

Karen Schmitt purchased this house in 1996

Perfect space for three families.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the nice, open floor plan and the well stocked kitchen (and 2 refridgerators!) We enjoyed our time at the house, exploring Black Butte ranch and Hoodoo ski resort. Ideal location and setting for a winter getaway. The hot tub is nice and large with a beautiful view. We also enjoyed playing pool, and we were impressed with the king size beds in the three bedrooms. Kids slept on inflatable mattresses in the loft. Owners were very responsive when we had questions. We hope to be back!

Very comfortable home to relax in and enjoy the view.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great place to relax. We've been there several times with and without the extended family. It's perfect either way. We'll be back again.

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this great golf home. Everything you need, comfortable home, nicely furnished and decorated. Black Butte is a great place to stay for all you could want to do in the area and this home makes it even better. On the tee box of a Par 3, so it gives you something to watch while you enjoy the large deck. Enjoyed the spa on the deck and the bicycles. too.

Perfect for our small 4-generation family!

  • 5 of 5

We have met a large group of friends for a fall weekend at the Ranch for the past 25 years. We've stayed in many homes. This was our first summer trip, our first smaller home and the first time with immediate family only. We ranged from 6 months to 83 years. It was remarkably well stocked with all manner of pots and pans as well as oils and vinegars and a drawer full of spices, plastic wrap and foil, cleaning supplies, bird and squirrel food, lots of bikes, a stroller, a portable crib--most items we brought with us knowing that many properties simply do not offer this level of service. Three bedrooms with three king beds! We loved the location! It's an easy walk/ride to the playground and new Lakeside pool; it's remarkably quiet with little traffic, a great back deck with hot tub and plenty of seating, a nice view of the golf course and plenty of space around the property for exploring, playing horseshoes or even setting up a bad-mitten net. We had a wonderful relaxing stay. My only complaint is the Ranch's $8 per person per day fee which rankled when I explained my 83 year old mother was not able to use any of the ranch amenities. No exceptions.

This house is not for every family configuration. Although there are air mattresses which could be used in the open loft/pool table room, the upstairs bathroom is in the master suite which might tax the only other bathroom downstairs. Additionally there is little noise barrier if teens upstairs were playing games and/or wanting privacy. Just gage your particular needs. For us it was perfection-our son with his young family took over the upstairs master suite while the grandparents and great grandma had the lower level. I would recommend this home and would rent from the owners again.

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Karen's home was ideal for our multi-generational gathering. We always love time at Black Butte, and this home's location was perfect for walking to the lodge area pool, playground, gym and coffee spot yet was quiet and peaceful. It was incredibly well equipped--bikes, baby bed and high chair, and pretty much everything one could possibly want for cooking and dining. Our toddler grandson loved watching (and feeding, with bird seed thoughtfully kept on hand) the birds, and we all enjoyed spending time on the deck watching the golfers. Wish we could have stayed much much longer--it was absolutely wonderful.
