About Carla St John

Friendly, responsive and service-oriented -- I love to share these beautiful houses with vacationers. I split my time between Oregon (Corvallis) and Mexico (San Miguel de Allende). I try to be completely up-front about all aspects of my house rentals --- my goal is for you to have a wonderful and memorable stay.

Please check out my other property in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico:

Carla St John purchased this house in 1986

Why Carla St John chose Central Oregon

Black Butte is a premier destination resort and this house is a jewel located in a very private part of the Ranch. What drew me to this house in particular was the amazing amount of natural light it captures, year-round! It is both private (because it's up on a hill) and airy (because of the big windows and high ceilings). It's a contemporary style with extensive use of clear cedar indoors. I like to keep furnishings simple, but beautiful.

And if you think BBR is only for summertime, you really should see it when it's covered with snow. I learned to cross-country ski on the snow-covered golf course across from the house, and there's a sledding hill very close-by.

What makes this house unique

Located about 1 mile from the Glaze Meadow Recreation Complex, it's an easy bike down (tougher going up....) The Ranch offers so many recreational opportunities, including horse riding, swimming, golf, but my favorite things to do is to just "be" in Black Butte and maybe take a bike ride along the many paths, that travel through forests and across grassy meadows.

This house is absolutely incredible. We stayed for about a week and a half and truly did not want to leave! The location was perfect for us, we felt we had total privacy. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals and plenty of space for two cooks! We really can't say enough good things about this property, and the owner was very easy to work with. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for top notch accommodations.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this property in mid-September, with some friends from the Bay Area, and enjoyed every minute. Great place with a very easy to deal with owner, who obviously takes pride in her property.

The open Great Room is a real plus for the home, and the bedrooms are large. We found everything well kept, and the kitchen well stocked with dishes and utensils. The Wi-Fi worked great, and cell phone service is good throughout the house and surrounding area.

Either a positive or negative depending on your outlook, is the location of the home which is about as far from the main gate as you can get. A good 10-minute drive, but relax and enjoy the scenery. The owner points out you should not try to use a GPS to find the home, and she is absolutely correct. We tested our car GPS, and Google Maps and Apple Maps on our cell phones, and none could accurately find their way to/from the home. Use the map they provide you at the welcome center.

We are looking forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Glad you found my tip about using the map useful. The streets of Black Butte Ranch are forested and beautiful , winding, not very well lit, seem to double back, and difficult to navigate at night or in the snow. Getting out is sometimes more challenging than getting in, so keep the map with you!

Gorgeous house! Wonderful owners...very friendly and responsive. This house has everything you'll need and more. Kitchen is well stocked with nice pans (not always easy to find in a rental!), dishes, silverware, etc. The hot tub is AWESOME and really fun that it's right outside the living room. Having AC was a luxury as well! We can't say enough about how well appointed the house is. We had a 4 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room for more if needed. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful house!!!

We loved this house and our stay at BBR. This house is extremely clean and up to date. It's very open and flows very well.

The back deck is totally private. The hot tub functions well and is easy to use.

Each bedroom is very large with plenty of

Closet space. Bathrooms are large and we'll stocked with towels.

We will be back to rent again!

Our stay was too short!

  • 5 of 5

The title of this listing says it all. This home was a beautiful place for our family of tweens and young children to put our roots down for a few days. Our only disappointment in our entire stay was that we didn't have more days to enjoy it! We can't wait to come again in the summer when we can enjoy the deck outdoors and the barbecue. The house was immaculate and upon walking in we were greeting by a wonderful clean fragrance. Plentiful bathrooms and a jacuzzi in the master and an outdoor hot tub! The kind owners gave us access to the dry goods in the pantry and it truly felt like our own house in such a quiet peaceful setting. It is located deep into the ranch and is very private and quiet. You will not be disappointed! The owner was very accessible and we got an almost immediate reply about firewood which was provided for the woodburning fireplace. Our kids loved the biking paths and the swimming pool and the tennis courts. We want to ride horses the next time also and can't wait to soak up the sun!
