Property Details

Updated: Jan 24, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This dramatic custom home, located 10 miles south of Sunriver, 7 miles North of La Pine, was designed and built by a doctor as his

dream retirement retreat. The east-facing wall toward Mt. Newberry

and the Little Deschutes River is all windows - 16 feet high and 60

feet across! - giving you exceptional views and lots of wonderful

light inside the home.

The home features two large bedroom suites with vaulted ceilings,

each having its own full bathroom. One bedroom has a King bed and

the other has a Queen and Twin Bunks. It is ideal for couples or a

family with children. The secluded setting makes the home very

popular for honeymoons.

There are no adjoining homes to spoil the feeling of peaceful

privacy in the home or when you are in the hot tub on the view

deck. A great variety of wildlife - deer, otter, beaver, eagles,

hawks, quail, and jumping trout can often be viewed from the home

(field glasses provided).

Riverfront is situated on a three-acre wooded site and has over 900

feet of private river frontage. The Little Deschutes is a crystal

clear trout river, with good numbers of wary Browns and Rainbow

trout. Current largest catch, 22 inch German Brown.

Inside, the home has been furnished for maximum enjoyment, with such

items as a big flat-screen TV,a DVD and VHS player,

glassfront wood stove, and a massaging leather recliner in

the living room.

Both bedrooms have large TV's and goosedown comforters on thick

pillowtop mattresses. The open-design kitchen features a Jenn-Air

range and large workstation island, plus a great assortment of

utensils and spices.

A separate game room has a tournament-quality pool table, foosball

table, exercise equipment, and a real slot machine (takes provided

tokens). There are also dozens of movies, hardcover novels, and

music CD's provided for your enjoyment.

And just two steps out the back door is that big hot tub on the view

deck. One of the greatest pleasures in the world is slipping into

that warm water on a clear night and looking up at the millions of

stars that can be seen here at our higher altitude.

This part of Oregon is in the "rain shadow" of the Cascades, with

300 days of sunshine a year and a very comfortable cool dry climate

during the summer months. Golf and other outdoor activities can be

enjoyed in non-sweaty comfort.

Nearby are several world-class golf courses, Mt. Bachelor (used by

Olympic ski teams for training), countless pristine mountain lakes,

wilderness hiking/biking trails, volcanic attractions, and scenic

drives. There are so many things to do here - no boredom!

We also provide free rubber rafts and tubes - you can put in at

various places upriver and float back down to the dock in our back

yard. On a warm summer day, this is great relaxing fun for both

adults and kids.

It is an easy 10-minute drive to either Sunriver Resort or to the

town of La Pine for groceries. Bend with its many fine restaurants

and major shopping malls is only 20 minutes away.

We know that many of you like to bring along the "other member of

the family" on vacations, so we allow quiet, housebroken pets.

There is a large dog run and acres of places begging to be sniffed,

a river to swim in, and squirrels in need of exercise. We just ask

that pets be kept off the furniture and that you pick up after them


You may now pay with a credit card through the secure PayPal service.

Truly a Little Corner of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5
We live and work in the increasingly crazy SF Bay Area and wanted (and NEEDED) some deep relaxation for Christmas week. We also wanted SNOW... and NEEDED a place where our furry "boys" could be with us - we can't always give them all the attention they deserve. We had been through the Bend area 18 months ago and saw all of the signs along the way for snowmobiling. We also knew the reputation that Central Oregon enjoys for outdoor recreation and splendor. So, we were ecstatic when we found Lucy's on VRBO! It answered all of our wants and needs. When we contacted Nick about timing, the only thing he couldn't guarantee was the snow. Imagine that :-)

Before we left, the forecasts for La Pine had been dicey for days and we drove through rain most of the way up. When we arrived on Sunday afternoon before Christmas, our boys started whistling and whining before we even turned into the driveway! They already knew Lucy's was something VERY SPECIAL.

We walked in the door and were immediately blown away by the warmth and hospitality that the place exudes. Lucy's is set up comfortably and is arranged on the property so it felt as though we were sitting right on the Little Deschutes River. Add to that, Nick and Debbie had left us a Christmas box for us with some regional goodies and a stocking for the boys with a couple of toys, which were a tremendous hit. We knew we had hit the jackpot!

The amenities at Lucy's are great. Everything works well and property is kept up nicely. There are a half dozen bird feeders that keep a wide variety of birds (including quail, blue jays, dove, chickadees, and flickers) and one industrious squirrel busy from dawn to dusk. On top of this, we saw a family of otters and a very wet juvenile bald eagle, all right out the wall-to-wall back windows. But, the real deal is outside. The next day, we took a short drive up to Mt. Bachelor for a great afternoon of snowmobiling. In spite of Nick's caution about snow, it arrived on Christmas Eve and we had a nice cover Christmas morning. It was magical all around.

We left feeling very relaxed and happy for the opportunity we had to spend 5 nights in a little corner of "Heaven on Earth". Like so many others who put their thoughts down here and in the guest book at Lucy's, we plan to be back!

One of my favorite places on Earth!

This was our 3rd visit to Lucy's and it just gets better every time. We got to share our home-away-from-home with our Son and new daughter-in-law, and they are already talking about when we can go back! We loved relaxing by the river, on the deck, by the fire pit, in the hot tub...ok we can relax just about anywhere there! The wildlife (quail, squirrels, ducks, geese, beavers, birds) and scenery (the fall colors are beautiful and I love the mist coming off the river in the mornings) kept our camera busy. The house has all of the comforts of home and then some (the ladies beat the gents in a best of five pool tournament!). While the house is a fantastic get away in itself, we also love the close proximity to so many recreational opportunities. A short drive in any direction takes you to wonderful places like the Old Mill District in Bend, Lake Paulina, Fort Rock (I'm a ghost town nut), the lava tubes, Wickiup Reservoir, La Pine State Park and that's just scratching the surface. There is just something magical about staying at Lucy's. You can feel the stress slipping off your shoulders as soon as you pull in the driveway. Nick is always awesome to work with when setting up a visit and the kitchen remodel is beautiful. Thanks again so much for letting us share your little piece of Heaven!

We come to Bend/Sunriver every summer for our family vacation and reunion. This was our first time at Lucy's and we'll be back! We had such a fun and relaxing time. Our two boys and fun-loving dog would have stayed another week if we could have. Loved the game room, the hot tub, the yard for throwing a ball and you just can't beat the view and access to the Little Deschutes. The boys fished, hunted frogs and crawdads, roasted marshmallows, and we all loved floating the river. And you can't say enough about Nick - from my first call to reserve for the week to his patient answering of my questions while we were there he was kind, patient and totally welcoming. Can't wait for next summer!

We can't thank Nick and Debbie enough for making this property available for others to use. Lucy's is a beautiful, secluded home on a bend on the Little Deschutes River. The home is thoughtfully appointed to make your stay comfortable. Nick and Debbie have thought of just about everything to make you feel welcome. Comfy beds, air conditioning, lots of seating both inside and out, a very fun game room, hot tub, large kitchen table to gather around at meals as well as a lovely deck table/chairs for outdoor dining as well. The owners have put together a wonderful, detailed binder of visitor information about the area. We enjoyed it cover to cover. If you like to cook, the kitchen is excellent! All appliances are in great shape, top-notch gas grill on the deck, even excellent cutlery! The deck and yard are absolutely beautiful. Lots of space both inside and out to spread out and relax. We were traveling with a loved one who was recovering from a painful illness and the peaceful serenity of Lucy's provided all the best kind of healing possible. We wished we would have booked the home for a longer period of time. Next time we will. The river runs right along the edge of the property and the environs are full of all sorts of wildlife. If you love to bird watch, you'll be in heaven here. Nick and Debbie provide ample food and feeders for the birds - they welcome you to feed them if you wish. Our friend had a nuthatch perch on the book she was reading as she sat on the deck enjoying the morning sun. There is small dock area in the yard to launch a canoe, kayak, or float tube. This river is great for flat water paddling/floating. Nick and Debbie even have inner tube- style rafts for guests to use. My husband fly- fished from a kayak and had good luck. The river is definitely worth exploring. Don't miss out! This is a very healthy ecosystem. There are not many places like this left on earth. This is a beautiful home (not just a house) nestled in this very unique natural space. We look forward to getting a chance to visit Lucy's again! Thank you Nick and Debbie!

If you want total relaxation in a property that provides a perfect get away from day to day stresses without any other nearby houses and yet is only a short drive to interesting scenery, local amenities and restaurants this is for you. Everything about the house was perfect and the quiet river frontage so relaxing that we did not want to leave.

Hi Nick:

We can't thank you enough for the wonderful hospitality at Lucy's Riverfront. It is an amazing home in a very beautiful location. We enjoyed all of the amenities that were provided from the well equipped kitchen, to excellent sight seeing and restaurant recommendations, the rafts for floating down the river and the hot tub. We also appreciated the very specific directions for operating all of the lights, appliances, and the game room activities. This home is even better than the listing details. The home is well kept and supplied. Nick and Debbie were extremely helpful with any questions that we had and provided specific instructions for arrival and departure. We hope to make an annual trip to this destination because we could not have selected a better location or property.

Thank you again for everything!
