About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

You'll love this one of a kind house, located in a one of a kind spot!

The 4000 sq. ft. home is in a gated subdivision on the Deschutes River. The back looks out at the river and across to the river trail where bikers and hikers pass by throughout the day. With no houses across the river, it feels like you're out in the country, but you're right in town!

The main level is mostly great room with huge picture windows looking out to the river. The spacious kitchen with seating at the marble island is a natural gathering spot - and cooks will love the fully equipped kitchen with high end appliances including a 6 burner gas cooktop. The other side of the great room is the living area which has a gas fireplace and 70' HD TV with surround sound. Stepping outside onto the main deck, you will find yourself looking down on one of the prettiest sections of the Deschutes River. This is a fabulous place to spend the evenings. The sun sets early behind Awbrey Butte so there is a long twilight. Also on the main level is a full bathroom and an office/bedroom with a queen size bed.

Upstairs are two bedrooms. One is a nice sized bedroom with a queen bed and its own full bath. The other is the master. It's very spacious with a king bed, sitting area, and a huge private deck out over the roof. The bathroom is over the top with dual sinks, walk-in shower, jetted bath, and a washer and dryer.

Go downstairs to the lower level and you'll find yourself in the game room. It has a full size pool table, arcade games, pub table and chairs, couches, a 40' TV and great views of the river. Adjacent to the game room, there is a spacious bedroom with a terrific river view and a queen size bed. There is also a huge bunk room with two sets of bunkbeds and a queen bed. Further back you'll find a theater with a 100' screen and high quality surround sound. There's a PlayStation 3 that's really cool on the big screen with the surround sound. Rounding out the bottom level are two full bathrooms. The best part of the basement level is the covered granite patio overlooking the river. Watch the wildlife while you enjoy the shade on a warm summer day; or soak in the hot tub after skiing in the winter.

About Rick Gordon

I'm a carpenter / general contractor. I moved to Bend from Hawaii with my wife who grew up here. Since I like to golf, snowboard, and mountain bike I can't think of a better place to live.

Rick Gordon purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick Gordon chose Bend

This house is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning, work, and a little luck. A friend found the lot while visiting one of the neighbors. I couldn't believe that there was a lot on the river that was so conveniently located yet didn't even feel like it was in town. After considering a partnership with him to do a spec home, my wife and I decided to buy it for ourselves. Four years and many plans later, we finally started building. We finally moved in February of 2010. Unfortunately, my wife passed away from cancer. Suddenly I found myself with this huge house that is too much for my son and me. Since I love this house too much to sell, I decided to finish off the basement and make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy it. Of course, I also like that I can come use it still.

5 couples stayed and had a great time. Would love to come back in the summer. Had a blast playing pool, sitting in the hot tub and enjoying the deck. The mast bedroom is amazing. We will be back!

This home was perfect for our group of 5 couples that choose to spend Super Bowl weekend together every year. We had everything we needed to cook big meals and keep busy having fun.

Great house

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

House was the perfect size for our family of 10... parents, kids, and grandkids. Kitchen was stocked so we only had to bring our groceries. Plenty of bedrooms and space. Lots to do do indoors with games, pool table, and home theater. If you like to play pool you may want to bring your own cue. Close to lots of stores and activities in Bend. Had a blast sledding at the snow park only a 25 minute drive. Owner was very kind and responsive to inquiries.

Beautiful home, great location

We have stayed at this home twice now for our winter break ski trip to Bend. The home is very comfortable and has everything you need. We love the location next to the Deschutes for the view. This year when the owner returned from out of town he came over and shoveled the snow from the driveway and walk himself! We'll definitely stay here again.

As advertised--great home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

I overall experience with the home was very positive. The house has a lot of space with separate zones for living. The kids enjoyed the lower level with the theater room, game area, and the two bedroom areas. The main floor has a great kitchen and hearth room with access to the deck. The upper level has a very large master bedroom and bathroom with access to an oversized deck. The second bedroom is much smaller, but is definitely functional. We had a few issues with the theater room but Rick was quick to respond and scheduled someone to come out and fix the issue.

The location was great and has multiple views of the river and surrounding area. The home is in a gated community and a little tricky to find, but well worth it. There is a trail close by that we walked and there is a good route to walk all the way to the downtown area (about a 3 mile hike on easy terrain).

Overall it is an excellent property!

Had a family reunion. This place was perfect for just such an event. My kids litterally did not want to leave. Highly recommend this place to anyone who has a large family. Thanks again Rick
