About the property

Fully-Equipped Home Sleeps 16 in 7 Bedrooms + Others (See Desc.) with 4.5 Baths

This wonderfully designed 4,400 sq. ft. home (remodeled and expanded significantly in 2003) features 3-4 separated multi-bedroom/bath areas within the home, giving 3-4 families very comfortable, private spaces for whenever that's desired.

When the crowd wants to get together, there are two living rooms, a media room w/ 50' in. flat screen TV, a spacious hangout room downstairs with couches and a pool table, and a huge wrap-around deck that's as relaxing during morning coffee as it is fun during an evening barbecue. The deck features plenty of lovely arched willow chairs including two loveseats, rocking chairs, child-sized chairs, and a dining table with chairs under a large covered porch, complete with a fan overhead if it's hot out..

The home is centrally located just a short bike ride from the Glaze Meadow Pool and even closer to the Paulina Spring, pool, and tennis courts - they're a direct walk down through our backyard to Red Clover and are so close they'll feel like your very own (you could even ring the dinner bell to call the kids up from playing!).

The home features 7 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a large and fully-equipped kitchen, wireless internet access, and deluxe digital cable. Other amenities include three wood-burning fireplaces (including dry and split wood), a walk-in 'crib room', a hide-a-bed sleep sofa in the TV room, multiple refrigerator-freezers, and even an extra-deep tub and an adjustable extra-tall shower for our taller guests!

Overall, the home has an outstanding layout that offers secluded private spaces for each family to sleep and prepare for each day, along with wonderfully open and inviting group gathering spaces for spending quality time together.

Sunday-to-Sunday rentals only during the summer, with a four or five night minimum otherwise (inquire for more information). Non-refundable Security Deposit of two nights' rent required to hold a reservation with personal checks accepted. $1,200 fully-refundable Damage Deposit required of new renters.

Come once and we think you'll love it! We love how our home has become like a second home for many families who return to rent our home year after year.

About Laura Randall

Owned by Barbara and Tom Strader of West Linn, OR, and managed by their daughter, Laura Randall.

Laura Randall purchased this house in 1977

Why Laura Randall chose Black Butte Ranch

We love the beautiful mountain views of the area, as well as all the great family activities available. The Ranch itself is surrounded by seven of the Cascade Mountains, which we love to see from so many places around the ranch. As our family has moved and grown, our Black Butte home has remained a constant, which makes it an even more special place for us. This is why we've expanded the home to make room for the expanding family. We now enjoy the home with our grown children, their spouses, and our eight grandchildren. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Relaxation, sports, the outdoors and wildlife, and, especially, family time.

Wonderful place for a group to stay!

  • 5 of 5

International women fly Fisher's rented this house along with 3 other houses. This was by far the best. We were looking for a place that could house a large number of solo women and we didn't want more than 2 people per room. This house fit the bill perfectly- we had 10 people here. Also great to have all the bathrooms and two washer/dryers.

We also had a need for a place that could hold a social gathering for 30. Our gathering was a resounding success, and the open layout contributed to that. Plenty of space for small groups of people to gather but also good when we needed to do announcements and presentations for all. Having multiple refrigerators was also good as we had a pot luck. And the long driveway was also beneficial as people from other houses joined us.

the owners were particularly easy to deal with and helpful. We took good care of the place as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back. This is a rare find for a large group. So happy to have found it.

A perfect fit for 4 families

  • 5 of 5

We were all so impressed with this house and everything in it! The kitchen is big with 2 sinks and 2 dishwashers. The cupboards have every kitchen tool, pot, pan, etc. that could be needed. The extra fridge in the garage makes it super easy to feed an extended family. We loved the cozy couch area in the kitchen at breakfast time. In the evenings we had great big dinners and relaxing family time in the spacious family room. There are many separate areas making it easy for individual families to have private and quiet space. Laundry is no problem as there are 2 sets of washer/dryers. The deck is amazing. The perfect spot for coffee or an afternoon nap. Fabulous house!!

Perfect Fit for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at this beautiful home for the first time last summer, and we can't wait to head back there again in 2015. The home is large enough for my family, and comfortably fit my extended family as well (grandparents, aunts, nephews, etc.). It's tough to find the perfect home for a family vacation as large as ours, but this is the one. We like staying in one location/house so we're all together, but this home is spacious enough that you can still have privacy when you want it. Great location by trails, pools, bridge, tennis courts, etc. It's close to everything, but not TOO close, where you might feel totally surrounded by other vacationers. It's secluded and private and is within a bike rides proximity to everything. Great deck for relaxing, pool table downstairs, all around great place for entertaining and kicking back. I've stayed at BBR for 27 years and this home is planted firmly at the top of the list!

Perfect Location for Large Group and All Amenities

  • 5 of 5

I have vacationed in this home for decades and the homeowner continually upgrades this amazing home. It is now suitable for large family reunions or a multi-family stay. The home has everything you need and areas for privacy while staying with a large group. I love the location: close to the pools, creek and bridge. You can easily get anywhere from this home's great location. Enjoy!

A Favorite Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house at Black Butte Ranch is a favorite getaway for my family. It is very beautiful, while still being homey and comfortable. We have visited during every kind of weather and always have a wonderful time. We enjoy the tennis courts and pools, walks and bike rides, and evenings on the deck. Deer almost always wander through for up close viewing. We love to take a 10 minute drive into the historic town of Sisters to enjoy window shopping, doughnuts at the Sisters Bakery, and coffee at the beautiful Sisters Coffee Company. This house with its many amenities is our number vacation destination.

Great layout - gives renters ways to separate *and* come together

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this home with three families of 3-5 people each plus our grandparents. This house has multiple central areas in case handfuls of people want to do different things, like playing games in one area while watching a movie in another and reading quietly in a third (which doesn't even count the great deck areas and the pool room), but there's room for everyone in a few areas too.

However, the best part is how private the separate sleeping areas are - it feels like you each have your own "wing" of the house practically! That makes it easier to keep each family's belongings from getting mixed together, to have private times, to manage different bedtimes... everything!

The owners care about practical conveniences, too - there are tons of towels, multiple washer/dryers and dishwashers, and the extra fridge in the garage. It makes it easy to get along with a lot of people in one house for a week.

Oh, and it's just beautiful, inside and out! The views, the naturally park-like forest setting, the wildlife that wanders through... awesome. :)
