About our home

This home is a second, or vacation, home. It is in the state of Oregon, USA. It was built in 2009 and sits over the desirable Dry Canyon Park. This home is on a cul de sac. The house has 4 bedrooms and a loft with beds to sleep as many as 11 people. 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and the loft are upstairs. 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining nook, office area and living room are downstairs. The back door leads to a patio with a barbeque/kitchen area, a small fireplace and seating areas.

The town of Redmond (28,000 people) is a bedroom community to Bend, the outdoor recreation center for the state of Oregon. Hiking, biking, golfing, kayaking/rafting, rock climbing, fishing & hunting, and water and snow skiing are but a few of the recreational endeavors found nearby. Redmond is central to many of Oregon's tourist attractions: to the north is Smith Rock, Lake Billy Chinook, Mt. Hood and further, the Columbia Gorge. To the west is the unique western town of Sisters, the volcanic Cascade Mountains and McKenzie Pass. To the south is Bend, the Newberry Crater/National Monument, and further south Crater Lake. To the east are the John Day Fossil Beds, the Painted Hills, and miles of both high desert and forest land.

Oregon itself is a state with a beautiful coastline, farmland, creating a burgeoning wine industry, and several mountain ranges with the Cascade Range running north to south for nearly the whole state. Oregon is known for its rainfall and green lush farmlands and mountains, but 2/3 of the state is sunny 300+ days of the year. This part of the state is mostly high desert and pine forests. Diversity is the name of the game in Oregon.

Bend/Redmond is located just east of the Cascade volcanic mountain range and home to sunshine and recreation! If you enjoy the outdoors, this is where you want to be.
