Great Family Vacation Home!

Stephanie - Philipsburg, Montana


We have stayed at many vacation rentals in our life and this was definitely at the top of our families list. The pictures don’t do this house justice. It’s way bigger in person. We will definitely return to this rental again. Inside - everything you could hope for and more! With high-end luxury appliances, a newly remodeled kitchen and EVERYTHING an entertainer could need in the kitchen from utensils to spices. Our kids were fully entertained with the oversized living room, huge TV, comfy couches, a fireplace, an array of games and movies with plenty of space for our 9 and 6 year olds to jump around without fear of breaking things. Most memorable for the kids was a Pac Man arcade game system! The Hot Tub was an extremely nice treat with plenty of privacy. The owners provide an array of bikes and helmets, tennis rackets, pickleball equipment and cornhole. Great vacation home!

50th Wedding Anniversary!

Sue L - N/A


8 Balsam Lane has everything you need for the perfect vacation in Sunriver. The kitchen is set up for a gourmet cook with an amazing barbecue grill on the deck right off the kitchen. With two living spaces it has something for everyone. We rented the house for family and friends to join is in Sunriver to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our guests all loved the house.

Excellent stay!

B & K Runge - San Diego


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 8 Baslam in Sun River OR. The house was spotless and very well upgraded and decorated which felt like home. Lots of room for families and larger groups. Large kitchen was a plus to cook wonderful meals and enjoy on the outdoor deck. Close to the Deschutes River for Kayaking, biking, and golfing at the Woodlands. Complaints? Stars were a little too bright at night. Air was a little too fresh and clean. Beds a little too comfortable. Other than that we loved our stay and will return!

Quiet, Peaceful Location

D. Allwardt - Sacramento


A group of six of us stayed here and we will definitely come back. The bedrooms are all nice with queen or king beds, and there are two living rooms that allow some downtime when needed. The kitchen must have been set up for a gourmet chef, it is really nice! We used the barbeque and the hot tub, both of which were clean and ready for use. We loved sitting on the deck at night to watch the stars. We also used the bicycles in the garage (there are eight of them) to ride all over the trail system that starts right outside the front door. Sunriver is an amazing place and we are grateful we found this home. We will be back!


J & K Heffner - Paradise Valley


My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous four night stay at 8 Balsam in late August. The home is spacious, tastefully decorated and impeccable. The location is perfect, with lot's to do, and a short drive to town. It is clear that the owners take great pride in caring for the property and ensuring their guests have a wonderful stay. We hit the jackpot when we found this spot!!

Highly Recommend This Rental!

W&T Wilmers - San Diego


Location – we found the location quiet and off the main streets and pathways, very little traffic. Nicely distanced from neighbors with a spacious area common to the back yards of surrounding homes. We could hear when others were having an outside gathering, but it sounded distant. Bedrooms and Baths – The rooms varied in size and access to bathrooms, with the main suite (upstairs) and one more on the lower floor having private baths. The other 2 bedrooms on the lower floor shared a bath, and each had direct access to an outdoor patio area for morning coffee or some reading time. Our bed was comfortable (included different pillow options), linens were fresh, the bath was clean, and everything worked (great water pressure!). Kitchen – High quality appliances with all the amenities you could ask for (including a wine fridge and proper glasses). We found everything we needed for each meal we prepared (there were a lot of gadgets to search through), and there was plenty of room for all to pitch in during meal prep. We also had access to a fantastic BBQ grill that met the exacting standards of our meat master, which we used nightly. Bonus - Second family room with another TV on the lower level. This worked out great for some ‘separation time’. I could see that it would also work well for a younger generation to have an area to hang out/play--away from the adults. Outside – a LARGE, beautiful rear deck with plenty of seating. We dined outdoors at sunset most evenings, then retired to the cushy sectional for nightcaps and conversation under the stars. Hot tub – it was obviously new and was clean and nicely secluded from peering eyes. We found bicycles for our use that proved perfect for daily rides along the many pathways of the resort. It was a nice, unexpected addition to our morning walks. There was also a bag toss game (cornhole) which we ended up using almost every day during pre-dinner cocktails. Overall – this home provides all you need to enjoy the area. We felt the owners wanted their guests to enjoy the home as they would, providing more than the minimum essentials of a “typical” rental. We smiled the entire way home. We highly recommend this property and will stay here again.


C. Clinch - Scottsdale


Outstanding and newly renovated property in beautiful Sunriver neighborhood. We stayed five nights in this beautifully appointed and comfortable home. Plenty of room for everyone - two master suites with ensuite bathrooms and two additional spacious bedrooms. Well equipped kitchen and superior outdoor grill if you like to cook, but plenty of nearby restaurants and breweries as well, and the nearby town of Bend offers unique shopping and exploring. The wrap around deck offers cozy nooks for reading, wildlife watching, and star gazing under the canopy and privacy of mature aspen and fir trees. After a day of biking, hiking and kayaking the Deschutes River, we sat in the hot tub that sits on the deck behind a privacy fence. The owners have equipped this property with every convenience and it is immaculate and user friendly. Great get away for friends and families.

Perfect For Families

S. Boutry - Tacoma


Myself, my son and his young family rented the property at 8 Balsam Lane for a week in July. It was the perfect getaway home for our busy lives. The entire house is beautifully decorated, and very comfortable, but I LOVED the kitchen. It was equipped like no other home I've ever rented. Truly a place for gourmet cooking. We also liked that there were two living spaces, and that the kids could go downstairs and play or watch TV while the grownups enjoyed a glass of wine on the large deck complete with sectional sofa and a large outdoor dining set. We ate outside most nights as the weather was perfect in the evenings. The hot tub was a hit with kids and adults alike. Now if we can just manage to figure out a time to come again in the winter! Obviously, I'd give this property a five-star rating. You definitely get what you pay for.

A Home-not a House

T & D - Hollister


We had always wanted to stay in Sunriver, and finally got to experience the area. What made our Sunriver stay so wonderful was the comfort and ambience of 8 Balsam. Our hosts have thought of everything and as soon as you walk in, you are in a home and not a house. The kitchen was fully outfitted (perfect as we are foodies), and the beds--perfect after a full day of outdoor activities. We cannot wait to stay there again. Thank you!


S Reinecke - Laguna Beach


Second time staying at 8 Baslam, and looking forward to vacationing here in the future. This house feels more like your home than a rental property. New high end furniture and appliances. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare and enjoy a fantastic spread with family or friends.. Large gas grill, Hot tub, comfortable 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, with two big decks and a smaller one (downstairs). Large garage is stocked with 8 bikes to enjoy the many paved trails through Sunriver. Highly recommend.

Wonderful Home!

Erin - Menlo Park


Our family had a wonderful time at this Sunriver home. The location is fantastic, with easy access to walking/biking trails (which were pleasantly plowed) and sno-parks. The home layout was perfect, spacious and everything was spotless. We enjoyed the hot tub, the wonderful living space stocked with games, puzzles and books as well as cooking in the kitchen which had all the items you would ever need! We love Bend/Sunriver and will definitely stay here again!
