Overview

Bend House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Excellent House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family (8 adults, 3 teenagers) stayed for a week. The house worked great, everybody had plenty of room. Great view and amenities, easy to get to downtown or back onto the highway. Highly recommend.

Beautiful home with a beautiful view of the Deschutes River

  • 5 of 5

I felt the property was exactly as described. The view off the three levels of decks was outstanding. The property is a short trail walk from Sawyer Park and access to the Deschutes River Trail. We used the park just about every day. The home is in very good condition. The home is located in a gated cul-de-sac which was perfect for our kids playing and riding bikes without fear of traffic. The pictures and description accurately represent the property. I would definitely rent the home again if I return to the Bend area.

May Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic stay at Rick's place! We drove down from Vancouver, Canada and the place was definitely worth the drive. The place is better than the photos and I would highly recommend staying here for any occasion. Rick was also very helpful and offered to stop by when we had a minor issue.

magnificant!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in lieu of staying in a hotel for our annual company conference. Five employees decided to stay in the home and were overjoyed by its elaborate and luxurious amenities. We could not get over that there was a bathroom for every bedroom. It was so comfortable and such a retreat to come back to after each day at our conference.

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed. We had 11 adults and there was plenty of room for all. Enjoying the wildlife from the deck, playing pool, relaxing in the hot tub, having movie night plus just playing games at the table made for a perfect family get together. We are already planning to go back.
