About our home

OUR HOUSE:
Tucked neatly between the snow covered peaks of the Cascade Mountains and the inspiring high-desert plateaus of Central Oregon, Bend Oregon has evolved from a sleepy lumber town to an international mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and people in search of active and healthy vacation experiences and tourist attractions.

Whether seeking the world renowned rock climbing at Smith Rock, the hiking, biking and skiing in the Cascade Mountains, the blue-ribbon fly fishing on the myriad of area trout streams, the trail running on Bend's cutting-edge Urban Trail System, a living history trip to the High Desert Museum, or simply enjoying the vibrant energy of a hip, cosmopolitan mountain town, people from around the world visit Bend to get outside and to be inspired by the Bend lifestyle. Award winning restaurants, breweries, concerts and plenty of fun downtown.

¾ acre property on a quiet cul-de-sac just above Tumalo State Park and the Deschutes River for the best kayaking and fishing all within walking distance. Area recently designated as a Scenic Bike Route by the State of Oregon. Bend was ranked as the best town for mountain biking by Mountain Bike Action magazine. Tumalo bike route runs just below house.

More about us

  1. We are Karen and Gil and are semi-retired professionals (college instructor/coach and paralegal) that love adventure and to travel. Our home in Oregon is a second home that we love to visit to get away, yet want to have the luxury of shopping and entertainment that Bend has. We sometimes travel with our grown kids. A lot of our travels have been around sports as we are avid sports fans, but we now look more for cultural and historical experiences. Speak limited Spanish. Mellow, non-smokers who love to immerse ourselves in different cultures. Have done several exchanges with great experiences.

    NOTE: Unable to do exchange in any home with cats due to allergies....sorry!

  2. We love the outdoors, history, snorkeling, history and beautiful scenery. Have been to Europe numerous times and looking to explore more local areas.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

With 300 days of sunshine a year, and oodles of fresh powder come winter, the high desert country of Central Oregon is an idyllic playground for sports lovers. World famous golf at more than 25 unique courses, coveted fly-fishing at over 150 rivers and lakes, and outdoor adventures including hiking, rock climbing at Smith Rock and an abundance of snow sports atop Mt. Bachelor. Impressive selection of restaurants and breweries, a vibrant nightlife and a growing arts scene. From lava beds and towering mountains to sheer cliff walls and raging rivers, Central Oregon screams “extreme sports!” The Deschutes National Forest and surrounding wilderness areas offer endless opportunity for biking, hiking, horseback riding, camping and fishing. Mt. Bachelor’s powdery slopes offer world-class skiing and snowboarding, groomed Nordic trails, dog-sled rides, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. White-water rafters and kayakers head to the lower river, famous for its towering rapids and rugged scenery. To cap your adventure climb the craggy spires of Smith Rock and trek along the world's largest obsidian flow at Newberry Volcanic Monument. Beautiful waterfalls and famous Crater Lake all can be done in a day's outing.
