About the property

5 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, Tipi, with Cascade Mountain views

You'll enjoy lots of privacy and space with this beautiful home near Bend in Tumalo. It sits on ten acres with views of Mt. Bachelor, Tumalo Mountain and Broken Top from the home and the Three Sisters from the driveway. The backyard has a rimrock canyon that is ready for exploring. There is also a full size grass volleyball court, horseshoe pit and a tipi for evening story-telling. The pond adjacent to the house attracts much wildlife. Deer are present on the property at least 200 days of the year. There is a wrap-around covered porch and large decking on 3 1/2 sides of the home. The back deck has mountain and canyon views with seating for 6-8 for dining and watching the sunset.

Enjoy the large, open country kitchen with a full compliment of cookware, table settings and seating for everyone. The views of the pond and mountains from the dining table make this space a wonderful gathering spot. The lower level features a new bar, pool table, pinball machine and seating area for additional entertaining.

About Amy and Michael Timony

What a lucky gal I am to have married the love of my life 37 years ago. What a bonus that he builds houses for a living including this one! I am originally a Portlander and he hails from Cleveland. We met as Miami University students and the rest is history. We are avid skiers, hikers, kayakers; there is nothing like coming home after a fun day to our peaceful spread.

Amy and Michael Timony purchased this house in 1991

Why Amy and Michael Timony chose Bend

We built this home ourselves in order to raise our children in a country setting while still being close to all the outdoor recreation and fun that Central Oregon has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The sunsets from the dining room and porches are incredible. We love how our pond attracts deer, birds and other wildlife. Our children really enjoyed exploring in the canyon when they were growing up...we even used to have annual Easter egg hunts down there. In the winter when we want to see if it's snowing on Mt. Bachelor, we just have to look out the dining room window for a view. The home has a very relaxed, cozy and spacious feel. We have even more space to enjoy while entertaining friends and family wth the lower level redesign.

Great location! We were about 10 minutes to Sisters and about the same distance to Bend.

Stunning Setting & Great Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family loved our week here. The house was extremely well-stocked and comfortable with ample room (and more) for everyone. Tumalo is gorgeous and we enjoyed the location -- Tumalo State Park is a 10 minute walk away where we spent many hours floating on the Deschutes; Downtown Bend is a quick 10 minute drive away, the grocery stores even closer; and it's easy place to bike from (for teenagers & adults). Our favorite part -- sitting on the deck to enjoy the beautiful setting. Easy to tell much thought was put into the design of this home. Amy & Michael are so easy to communicate with and were extremely understanding and patient with my lack of organization at times. We sincerely hope to return in the future.

An ideal place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family of 6 needed four of the five bedrooms of this spacious house. The setting is not only beautiful from any of the three deck views as shown, it was fully fun equipped with a volleyball court, horse shoes, pool table and croquet set. There's even a solitary disc golf goal hidden down in the canyon behind.

We were able to get to Madras to see the 2017 solar eclipse and return to this quiet setting for rest and a fun time together, Of the VRBO homes we've rented this was the best and all were excellent.

Couldn't Be Nicer

  • 5 of 5

This property is new to VRBO. I think we were the first people to rent it and it's great.

First there is the location. It's right outside Bend, but enough that you feel like you are out in the country, which you are because both this and the surrounding properties all sit on large acreage.

The house is exactly as described and well maintained. Extras that we found to be a real hit with the kids were the pool table and the pinball machine, no quarters required.

The owners were great too. They checked in to make sure everything was Ok, which it was, and promptly returned our security deposit.

Highly recommended to anyone but especially if you have activities you need to attend in Redmond. Much better location that south of town.

Owner's Response: Yes, you were our first guests! Thanks for the nice review and thanks for taking good care of the place. We are actually much closer to Bend than Redmond, but our house would work for both towns as well as Sisters.

This Tumalo home set on 10 acres gives you plenty of space to relax country-style, while being just a few minutes from the hubbub of Bend. Enjoy your time recreating, shopping or sight-seeing then come home to peace and quiet while catching a beautiful mountain view sunset reflected in the pond. This location is a great base for the many local annual events such as the Pole Pedal Paddle race, Sisters Quilt Show, Cascade Lakes Relay, Cascade Cycling Classic, Pub Tour, High Desert Classic Horse Show, Les Schwab Amphitheater, etc. etc.!
