About Linda Marshall

We are a family of 6 and have loved Black Butte Ranch for 20 years. Our family has many wonderful memories here. We have found much peace in the tranquility of the ranch and able to leave the stress of work and life behind.

Linda Marshall purchased this house in 1992

Why Linda Marshall chose Central Oregon

We chose to buy on the ranch, for we wanted a home that we could enjoy all 4 seasons. We are avid bikers, skiers, fishermen, and hikers. We also wanted a short drive from Portland so that we could enjoy on the weekends. Our home has everything that you need away from your own home.

What makes this house unique

What makes our home unique is that it is a true log home and there are very few on the ranch. We have a covered front porch that can be used during all seasons for the lighting is great to play cards at night and enjoy meals even during the winter time.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This log home is well situated to the South Meadow Pool and tennis courts, the Glaze Meadow recreation center and the bike paths. It's amazingly quiet as it is off the main street even though there are neighbors nearby. The owners are wonderfully responsive and the house is well stocked. This house easily could host 2 families with a master downstairs, a queen upstairs and a "bunk" room with 4 beds. Our dog loved it as well - he particularly enjoyed sitting on the frong porch while we were out and about.

R & R

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's 3rd stay at #34 SM and we will definitely make reservations soon for next summer! It's a perfect location - close to the pool and tennis courts, bike paths...It is a picture postcard of a cozy cabin and the inside is just perfect for us! We barbeque every evening and entertain guests when they drop by - the front porch is so inviting! Every time we have stayed here the neighboring renters have commented on how charming this home is.

Fourth of July

  • 4 of 5

The home was nice for our extended family, ranging from 2 years to 85 years, plus a dog. Black Butte pool nearest the home wasn't open and the owner had not notified so we weren't aware and that was a disappointment. It would be helpful to have instructions on the oven/stove controls and location of the extra burners (instead of grill). Also, railings on the front steps would be helpful for older visitors, and rails at the end of porch would be helpful when toddlers are part of the party. Otherwise the home worked well for us.

Owner's Response: Yes, we are so sorry the pool was not open. Unfortunately the ranch does not notify the owners and it was supposed to be open Memorial day weekend. We didn't know that there was a part ordered for the pool that took 3 weeks to deliver. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay though. We raised our four kids in the home with lots of toddlers but it is a log home and not for handicapped, though the master is on the main. The good news, it was a fun fourth of July with all the events going on the ranch. We layer out instructions for the oven and the TV on the countertop now. Thank you and have a great end of the summer

Charming, Cozy, and Clean Log Home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family. Tons of character and fully equipped with all that you need. There is plenty of space for large families. The amenities are rustic and furniture and appliances are period for the cabin and totally functional. The location is private, beautiful, and right where you want to be within the resort. We will definitely be back.
