We designed the outside of our wonderful 3,400 sq ft lodge home retreat with Breckenridge batten board siding, rough-sawed beam porches and 5 decks to "live outside", enjoy meals, relax, and take in the 9 Cascade Mt views and valley below.
Our home is a basically a duplex design with two separate Entries and two separate living areas; you'll be staying in the private 2,000 sq ft north end, it has 4 BR, 3 full Baths, Great Room, & Gourmet Gitchen all on one level which has it's own separate front Entry.
Sleeping facilities include a Mast BR with king bed and your own private bathroom with Travertine tile & glass shower, & TV/VCR; the other 3 BRs have Queen beds. The main Bath Rm has Travertine tile and glass surround tub/shower; and the 3rd bathroom has Travertine tile & shower, with convenient access to the deck and hot tub. The Great Room/DR/Gourmet Kit is where everyone hangs out together, play games, watch movies, and relax. It has vaulted ceilings, beautiful Knotty Western Birch floors, wood stove for winter ambiance, 3 sofas and chair, 50" HDTV/DVD w/ sound projection, Dish TV, Net Flix, DVD's in the cabinet, and 10 Mbps WiFi.
The Gourmet Kitchen/Dining has Knotty Alder cabinets & Buffet, Granite counter tops, Island/Bar seating for 6; the DR has an Indian Rosewood table w/ seating for 10. The Kitchen is fully equipped, has a 6 burner cook top w/ hood & warming lights, also full spice rack, and basic condiments in the fridge. We have our own 440 ft. well with the best water in Oregon with no chemicals. Everyone who has stayed in our home is always amazed by the views, and the quiet and peaceful surroundings; we're in the country but only 10 min. to the city if you need anything. With our four children and eight grandchildren we have created incredible memories in our home over the last 11 years.
GUEST ACCESS: We have convenient parking for 4 vehicles in the driveway area. Outside you'll have 1,600 sq ft of 3 decks all to yourself, 1 on each side of the house so you can move around with the sun. For your outside dining pleasure there are 3 dining tables w/ 16 chairs. Enjoy barbeques and meals together, and after dinner sit around the gas fire pit, have a glass of wine, and watch the amazing sunsets on the Cascade Mts. Relax and enjoy soaks in the Hot Tub while taking in the view. The north deck is a great spot to sit in the lounge chairs for a siesta, or a card game in the afternoon shade and breeze. Also, there are 2 hammocks in the Juniper trees for true relaxing. The back deck catches the morning sun and is a wonderful place to have your morning coffee and sit and read. A family favorite is sitting around the wood firepit and roasting hot dogs and s'mores. Also, have a picnic with wine and cheese in the Gazebo on the south side. Outdoor activities include Bocce, Boule, & Horseshoe courts, and for the adventurists there is even a rustic 9 hole Frisbee golf course through the sage brush & Juniper trees.
We live in the south half of our duplex upstairs; we are "out of sight/out of mind" and are always respectful of your privacy; we're far enough away but close if you need anything; you probably won't even see us.

Jeri · Waianae, HI
Beautiful huge home with all the amenities inside and outside the home. Close to activities that we enjoyed in the area. Spectacular view of the Snow covered mountains. Tom & Tyrene are wonderful hosts. You'll make the right decision staying at the home.
Robert · Vancouver, WA
Tom and Tyrene were amazing hosts. Our family is dealing with a difficult loss of a loved one and we needed a retreat and stumbled on Tom and Tyrene's home. We informed them of why wanted to get away and they went above and beyond the call of typical hosting duties to ensure that our family was well taken care of and had an amazing time. We can't thank them enough for their kindness and understanding during our stay. They struck the perfect balance of making sure we had everything we needed and were enjoying our stay while giving us plenty of space to relax and rejuvenate. The home was everything it was advertised to be and more. The kitchen was amazing and well appointed. The property had lots of fun enjoyable activities and amazing views. We truly hope to visit Tom and Tyrene again in the near future.
Brandon · Canby, OR
This home was way beyond our expectations! The craftsmanship in the home was stunning and the view from the hot tub was breathtaking. The home is loaded with amenities and the hosts are fantastic. This place is paradise.
Rebecca · Carlton, OR
We had a wonderful stay in Central Oregon at Tye and Tom's home! They were such gracious and caring hosts and really made our stay special with personalized touches. We're already looking forward to staying again in the future. Thanks again Gary family!
Gabriel · Portland, OR
Tom was the most responsive host I've ever had...He made sure we had everything needed and was always on top of things. The house was beautiful as the pictures. I believe I probably spent way too much time in the hot tub enjoying the sundown? Can't wait to come back! :)
Lauren · Portland, OR
We can't thank you enough for opening up your home to us. It was beyond any expectations we had. We would say the best AirBNB we have stayed in, and we've stayed in quite a few. The scenic mountain range was amazing from seeing at first glance waking up in the morning to an evening dunk in the hot tub watching the sunset. The snow covered range just made it even more exciting - thank you for the pre-made toboggan run :) The home was warm and inviting with all the best amenities from kitchen, to the beds and bathrooms. Your thoughtfulness of setting the table for our family of 7 and with the finer touches for the upcoming holiday. We look forward to coming back in the summer. Cheers, Lauren & Daren
Tara · Portland, OR
December 2016 Tom and Tyrene made us feel welcome and at home, the place was as beautiful as the photos, though the view blew us away even more. Sitting in the hot tup watching the sun rise hit the mountain tops was incredible. The amenities in the house were extensive. We were lacking for nothing, especially as the town was conveniently near, and Sisters and Bend are a short drive away too. I cannot speak highly enough of these hosts! It felt like we were coming to stay with our favorite relatives (but better:)
Kaitlyn · Portland, OR
This weekend a group of 8 of us stayed at Tom & Tyrene's BEAUTIFUL home. We had the most amazing time!! The home was filled with everything you would ever need. We just needed to but the food, but everything to cook with with in the home. The house was beautifully decorated for christmas! The wood stove fireplace in the living room kept it nice and warm in the snowy weather. The hot tub was the perfect touch! The bedrooms were cozy and comfortable. The best part was the views! Our trip was everything we hoped it would be and more! I would highly recommend staying in this home! We cannot wait to go back!
Matthew · Makati, Philippines;
When I arrived in my car with my girlfriend Tom and Tyrene were waiting on the front porch to meet us. The home was easy to find; WOW, the place was just gorgeous with an incredible Deschutes River and mountain views are just amazing from the huge spacious deck. The gas fire pit was perfect to sit by and share a glass of wine. The deck also had a gas grill! Around back is a bocce ball court which produced some laughs for us. The gourmet kitchen is huge and the living room has a designer cabin feel with leather couches. Their home overall is amazing+ More
