Description

The Space

Our unique three story lookout tower was fashioned after a Forest Service fire lookout tower, the cozy 20' x 20' square upper living/kitchen area offers a 360 degree unobstructed view of Central Oregon's 13 snow capped volcanic Cascade Mountain peaks. The deck on the top level completely surrounds the structure and has deck chairs and a gas BBQ for your enjoyment. Built with reclaimed lumber from a navy shipyard, it has many features that make it very cozy. Bedrooms and bathrooms are located on the middle and lower levels. Our home is on 5 acres of natural landscape on the Crooked River Ranch development. It is a perfect artist/writer retreat. We have an outdoor hot tub and free wireless internet so you need not venture out unless you choose to. A first class golf course and community salt water pool are available for your enjoyment in the summer. The Deschutes River is near by that many fishing and rafting enthusiasts enjoy. Smith Rocks State Park is across the highway for hiking or rock climbing. Winter sports are available at Mt. Bachelor just 50 miles away. It is a 3 1/2 hour drive from Portland International Airport or 20 minutes from the Redmond, Oregon Airport to our vacation home.

Terrebonne, OR is 15 minutes away and offers a grocery store and restaurant. Driving 5 miles further south on Hwy 97 you come to Redmond, OR and then 20 miles more Bend, OR where you can enjoy wonderful restaurants, theaters and shopping.

The Neighborhood

Crooked River Ranch covers 10,000 acres of rural residential, recreational and commercial property, of which 9,900 acres are divided into 2646 privately owned lots. The remainder of the acreage consists of common and community property, along with buildings and equipment, which are owned by the Association.

The common and Community property is scattered throughout the Ranch. The most prominent areas are the Crooked River Ranch (CRR) Golf Course and Pro Shop and the CRR RV Park. During the summer the main attraction for the kids is the swimming pool. Other community property widely utilized is MacPherson Park with Pavilion for Picnics, reunions, and parties. Other attractions are the Dick Chandler Baseball Field, the basketball court, the tennis/pickleball courts and the Lions' Memorial Park.

There are many walking and hiking trails on the Ranch. You can hike Sand Ridge Trail, Otter Bench Trail (Difficulty level, Easy-Medium) or Scout Camp Trail (more difficult). You won't believe your eyes as you climb down this trail and take in the view of the canyon - sun shining on the rocks at sunset and the sound of the Deschutes River flowing below. For an easier stroll take a walk around the North Pasture with your dog or horse. You can also ride your horse at the enclosed arena along the golf course.

If you like fishing you'll love the Crooked River, but you'd better be prepared to take a hike down Lone Pine Trail to get there. Once you get there you will be awed by the canyon's scenic views.

The Ranch has its own falls, Steelhead Falls that is! There is a great hiking trail down to the falls area where there's a great place for a picnic. You'll always see a lot of wildlife on the Ranch, whether it be a deer with her fawns in spring or every kind of bird you can imagine! You can see quail by the score with the chicks crossing the road and jack rabbits and cottontails looking for goodies in a garden. Coyotes can be seen quite regularly and occasionally heard howling at the moon.

My husband Lonnie and I saw the inside of this unique home on Christmas morning 2005. The owners were friends and neighbors of my sister and brother-in-law. Over coffee we happen to say that if you ever think about selling, please ask us first. They looked at each other in surprise and told us that just that very morning they talked for the first time about selling and going on an extended road trip. We said, "let us know how much you want" and with in the next year we were the proud owners of The Lookout. We have used it only for our own enjoyment and loaned it out to close friends and family up until now. We just got on "the grid" so now it is easier for guests to enjoy our property without being concerned if they would run out of solar power. We know you will be just as awe struck as we were when you see The Lookout for the first time. Be prepared to have an unforgettable time! My husband and I live in the Portland area and own or own business.
