About Karen

We are a semi-retired couple with 4 grown kids. Bought this home after visiting our daughter who married and moved to Bend. Fell in love with the area, especially because we are so close to town, yet have a peaceful, quiet retreat away from our sometimes crazy life! My husband coaches football and I'm a paralegal. Love sports and travel.

Now our entire family visits often with the grandkids whenever we can.

Karen purchased this house in 2008

Why Karen chose Bend

We fell in love with all the fun activities to do in the summer and the snow in the winter. All the best shopping and restaurants within 15 minutes from our little country getaway. We keep discovering new fun places every time we go up there for hiking, sightseeing, fishing, kayaking...the list goes on!

What makes this house unique

Nothing beats sitting on our balcony overlooking the woods and the view of Mt. Bachelor. Deer and wildlife abound. So peaceful.....

Quiet rural location, minutes from town

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this quiet property. Not far from Bend - but feels like a cabin, with lots of privacy. Woke up the first morning to a dusting of snow and a family of 5 deer in the yard. Would definitely return.

Cozy Cabin, Perfect Holidays

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home provided the perfect holiday retreat for our family. With a fully stocked kitchen, huge windows with a huge view and a pellet stove for extra warmth, we were cozy and comfortable. The owners thoughtfully provided Christmas decorations in addition to board games, binoculars and bird seed for bird watching at the deck feeders. The house is located in the Tumalo area outside Bend, but has very easy access to town and is just up the hill from beautiful walking trails along the Deschutes River, in Tumalo State Park. The llama farm with its fuzzy residents just down the road is an extra added attraction. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this home for a family or friends retreat.

Quiet Country Retreat

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities! The views! The comfy beds! The bunnies! The house is like a fancy modern hunting cabin. We enjoyed the quiet of the countryside and we loved the quick trips into Bend. In between activities, we loved the hush of the house as we caught up on our writing and reading. Extra points given for providing bird seed so we could get some up close bird watching done. And thanks to caretaker Kelly for being so welcoming and friendly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review of our house. After a wet winter, the yard is full of wildlife. Come back again! Karen

Beautiful Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

My Dad, my sister, my daughter and I all made the road trip from Southern California to my Cousin's wedding. My Dad originally wanted to stay in hotels but I convinced him it would cost less for us all to share a home and I found this one. It was perfect for our needs. Close to everything we needed to attend; plenty of room; a great view - made us feel like we were on a great vacation. We visited and loved the very close state park that had a great access point to the river for wading and floating and we saw several people fishing. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. We would definately stay here again if we needed a place close to family in Bend.

Great place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (parents and two young adult kids). The house was perfect for us. Spacious yet cozy, with three comfortable bedrooms, a big living/dining room, and a nice deck. We cooked every evening, and used the grill. The air conditioning made it a welcome retreat from summer heat.This was a great place to stay if you want to be close to Bend but feel like you're not in the town. Tumalo Park is a short drive away, where you can swim in the river. Various great hikes are within 40 minutes or so (Smith Rock, Lava Lands, Tumalo Falls). We also enjoyed swimming at Riverbend Park.
