This Great Log Home was built on 2.27 acres in desirable Tumalo area (zoned residential with acreage, and farm use only). It complements the unobstructed view of the Cascade Mountains including Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and the Three Sisters, and a “limited partial view” of Mt. Washington and Mt. Jefferson. You are going to love the “Huge and Majestic” mountain view! 

Many homes in Central Oregon have "mountain views", but very few can boast that they have a view of 5 mountain peaks from their west side deck, mountain peaks from their south side deck (including a view of the South Sister from the reclining position in the hot tub); a mountain view from the Great Room on the first floor of the log home and from the stairwell landing between the first and second floor; a mountain view from the second floor (including, from your recliner, a view of Broken Top through one large window, and Mt. Bachelor through the other large window.

Extreme care and attention to detail was taken in designing every facet of this log home, to insure we took advantage of the incredible mountain views.

Conveniently located in Tumalo, between Bend and Sisters, you are just 1-1/2 miles from trout fishing on the Deschutes River, the Tumalo Country Store, and Farmer John's Market; 5 miles from Trader Joes, Target and Home Depot in Bend; 30 miles from Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort; 48 miles from world famous salmon fly hatch fishing waters on the Deschutes River at Warm Springs; as well as the many golf courses, walking, jogging, hiking, bicycle trails, as well as the high lakes in the Cascade Mountain Range.



  This may well be the home of your dreams, but are you looking for all the features to enhance your living style, or just finding the BEST price due to foreclosures, short sells, or distressed properties?  
  You will find the many windows, glass doors and skylights provide exceptional lighting that you will not find in many other log homes. They bring the outdoor landscape, wildlife and mountain scene to life, inside your cozy log home.

   found in "Award Winning" Country Kitchens; specifically a

The log home has a wrap around deck with log railing along the west and south sides (1202 square feet), with a hot tub to rest your weary bones after a day of hard work or out doing the activities you enjoy in Central Oregon.

There is additional outdoor living space in the back of the log home on the east side, with 380 square feet of patio pavers. It is very pleasant in the late, hot summer afternoons along with an inherent light breeze. Plus, the 30' peak of the log home offers welcoming shade during the hot summer months.

The landscaped yard has two 100 year old horse drawn wagons: one is a freight wagon that hauled wool from Shaniko to the Prineville railroad, and the other is a doctors’ buggy that was used in the rural Wyoming territory.
