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 Boyd Acres
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.

My 13 girlfriends and myself LOVED this home! The separation of space is great for a large group but still great if all hanging out in same room. The river view is spectacular and walking trails nearby a bonus! Beds were so comfortable and comfy linens. I could go on and on! Thank you Rick for sharing this beautiful home!
Terrific house for 50th birthday celebration!
Five couples really enjoyed our stay. We're outdoorsy and have fun playing games, so we spent each day exploring nearby then returning to the house for a soak, making group dinners, and competing in everything from the vintage donkey Kong to Cranium. Views of the river are lovely, and we're planning to return in different seasons. We recommend hiking or climbing at Smith Rock state park, XC ski or hike to Tumalo Falls, and skiing/boarding at Mt Bachelor. The five bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen well appointed.
Fell in love with this place from the moment we walked in the door! This home is stunning! The views are amazing and the amenities are top notch. Could not have asked for a better place.
Spacious, great view, conveniently located, well equipped- need more coffee cups and wine glasses.
We used the main balcony for our wedding ceremony because the weather was so nice. It was a great setting. Love the heated floors, theatre room, hot tub, and the game room too! So many amenities! Very nice. Hope to come back. Great place for our family gathering.
The house was just perfect! We had all the space we needed to prepare for our daughter's wedding ❤️
Kid and Adult Activities, Ambiance, and Total Comfort
Our family reunion included 11 people from California and Washington. We had four kids that ranged from 3 to 10. This rental had it all for everyone of us. The kids loved the arcade games, hot tub and movie theater. The adults loved the view, the comfort of the living room and kitchen. We enjoyed wonderful meals prepared in the kitchen and on the grill. I can't say enough about our stay here. What a comfortable place this is!!
