This lovely home by the Deschutes River is sure to impress all who visit. Extensive tile, travertine, and bamboo laminate floors throughout give this home a beautiful upgraded finish.
Guests will feel pampered with a beautifully upgraded kitchen with granite countertops, new stove and sink, lovely duvets on each bed, and a high-efficiency washer and dryer for running that occasional load of needed laundry.
Upstairs you will find the primary bedroom with King-sized bed, work area and en suite bathroom.
Head downstairs for two more bedrooms. The first has a Queen and a Twin Bed and TV and the second bedroom has a King bed and TV.
Four flat screen TVs, blue ray, and free WiFi add to the entertainment and connectivity of the active family. Air conditioning has been recently added to this lovely home, along with a 2 stage high-efficiency furnace to ensure that your winter nights are toasty warm and your summer days are as cool as our guests.
Invite friends over to BBQ on either the upper deck (toddler safe), or entertain by the hot tub on the lower deck with vistas of the river. Take one of the available bikes to the Nature Center with the kids or anywhere in Sunriver on one of the 4 adult bikes provided with this vacation rental home. Challenge a family member or friend to a game of ping pong. In the cooler months put a log on the wood fire and relax with a good book while the rest of the family skis at Mount Bachelor, a half hour away.
The owners of this lovely home are committed to making your stay as pleasurable as possible and have pledged to continue making improvements that will make guests yearn to come back to participate in this active, yet peaceful, location. They want this home to become your Sunriver destination.

The kitchen is very well stocked.
Julie - Snohomish
This home is a little outdated, but well stocked and conveniently located near the trail and river.
Laura - DANVILLE
Bikes are old and not useful to get around sunriver paths. TVs are old, picture quality terrible.
Laura - DANVILLE
The location of this house is great. Due to the price per night, our expectations were a bit higher as far as bathrooms. They need updating. Kitchen was nice and clean, lots of supplies.
Deena - Lake Oswego
Priscilla - Portland
The house is very nice and well equipped. We love the location. We have rented this house in the past and we would stay again.
Howard W. - Eugene
The house is right by the Deschutes River. It has a big deck on the second story that's in the shade most of the day. You can lie on the chaise longue and daydream in communion with nature.
Adam - Grants Pass
1/2 bath toilet seat upstairs is broken with sharp edges and a hazard to sit on.
Hi Adam, Thank you for letting us know about the toilet seat. I will have my maintenance team take care of that right away. I hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise, thank you for choosing Bennington Properties.
Thank You! 2019-07-16
Andrea - Hillsboro
This was a well appointed home with everything we needed during our stay. The location is wonderful with great river views. The home is a bit dated, but the location and open layout are great. We will go back and stay again. Excellent communication and service from Bennington throughout our stay.
Josh - Salem
Nice living room, view, kitchen. Master bath a bit dated but nice location and overall home.
Suzanne - Eugene
We've stayed in a number of places at Sunriver, and I'd have to say that this has had the best equipped kitchen of any -- which is a plus for us, since we fix most of our meals. Though we didn't use them, as we were skiing on the mountain, the bikes were in great shape and the tires weren't flat! The location is excellent with a view of the river and in a quiet area. I would probably stay here again.
jan - Bayview
Everything about this house is outstanding. We plan to stay here again.
David - Corvallis
Wonderful place. Has everything one would want on a stay (bikes, ping-pong, hot tub, etc). I would definitely come back. Be ready to relax and have fun.
Patrick - Newberg
The home was perfect for us! Right size, right location, right time. We really appreciate Bennington's willingness to work with us at the last minute. As one example of your great service, when the smoke detector battery needed replacement, Bennington maintenance came over during off-hours to fix it. The layout of the house was perfect for our long stay and we look forward to staying there again, if available! We'll reach out again on our next trip... Overall, wonderful stay...wonderful house. 5 stars! Thank you, again! Patrick & Terriann
Michelle - Beaverton
Perfect location with all the comforts of home. This is my favorite spot to stay in Sunriver. We have been coming to Sunriver for 10 years now, and we have finally found the one house we will return to each year. It is a well-stocked house that has everything you need and more.
Karen - Beaverton
We invited friends from Arizona and California who have never been to Sunriver. They absolutely loved the house! The location is awesome and Bennington Properties is very motivated to please. We would definitely rent this one again.
Dan - Bend
Top notch highly recommended! This is a well maintained, comft family retreat destination - $1,000,000 view of the Deschutes never gets old! Highly recommended . . . all the way down to the espresso machine!
Lawrence J. - Grants Pass
This is my family's 5th time at 5 Goldfinch. 5 times... Needless to say it's a great place. The house is always perfect. It varies, but my siblings live in the Bay Area, Portland and Seattle. I live in Grants Pass. We always have some combination to fill the house and have a good time. As of this time we're planning to do 5 Goldfinch again next year
Bruce - Portland
Cliff B - Minden
For your records we had a wonderful time at #5 Goldfinch. We love Sunriver and have used Bennington properties for many years, possibly when you started. We first stayed in Sunriver when we lived in Bend, 36 years ago, and have been there many times since. We use Bennington exclusively because we know the house will be spotless and in perfect condition, plus we enjoy different houses so we can be in different locations in the park. We live in Nevada, where lotteries are illegal, go figure, so whenever we visit Sunriver we buy a few lottery tickets and then cruise the park looking for our next home. If we ever win you'll be our first call. In the mean time we'll continue to stay at your houses as often as we can.
Melanie - Portland
Overall the house is comfortable and the location is good. Close to the river and bike path. It could use a new microwave and the refrigerator is small for multiple families.
Hi Melanie, Thank you for your recent and great review of our 5 Goldfinch home. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay in Sunriver and with us at Bennington Properties. I have passed along your review to the rest of our team to have a look at the microwave and since your review, we have purchased another one and will be delivered prior to the next guest arriving. We appreciate you and we look forward to hosting you for future Sunriver stays. Jess Rae

Main bathroom sinks drain slowly. Microwave needs attention.
Hi Ted, Thank you for your recent review of our 5 Goldfinch home. We are pleased to hear that overall you and your family enjoyed your stay in Sunriver and with us at Bennington Properties. I have passed along your review to the rest of our team and since your review, we have ordered a new microwave for the home and have had our maintenance team take care of the bathroom sink slow drain.

Teresa - Richland
Kitchen items suggestion - pancake griddle, waffle iron, electric tea kettle Entertainment suggestions - complimentary passes to SHARC and tennis/pickle ball courts Loved the view from the deck. Great bikes. The Bennington Gold card gave us a 15% discount on a Burley rental , as well as free entrance into the High Desert Museum. Perfect floor plan for two families, although the massive stone staircase was a worry with the 3 year old. House was VERY hot by 10am, even though we followed the open windows at night, close shades during the day routine.
Hi Teresa, Thank you for your recent and wonderful review of our 5 Goldfinch home. We are pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay in Sunriver and with us at Bennington Properties. I have passed along your feedback to the rest of our team to see about getting some of those items for the kitchen. It has been unusually warm for July this year, please know that if you ever need more fans in the home, please let us know and we will be more than happy to bring them out to you. I do hope that you are aware that if you save your receipts for tennis and pickleball, we will reimburse you 100% of your court fees and as well we reimburse you 50% on all of your SHARC passes purchased during your stay with us. We appreciate you and we look forward to hosting you for future Sunriver stays. -Jess Rae

It was never clear how to operate the TV in the living room, not that we were there to watch television.
Hi Ruth, Thank you for your recent review of our 5 Goldfinch home. I am sorry that you were having trouble working the TV during your recent stay. I have passed along your feedback to the rest of our team to ensure that there are clear written instructions for operating the TV. I hope that you did indeed enjoy the rest of your stay in Sunriver and with us at Bennington Properties. We appreciate you and we look forward to hosting you for future Sunriver stays. -Jess Rae

Great home! Loved the view of the Deschutes River and easy access to pathways. Home was tastefully furnished and well stocked in the kitchen. Will for sure book this home again for future family vacations. Thank you!

Robert - Portland
This home is perfect: the views from the main living room are absolutely the best in Sunriver. There is plenty of space for everyone to relax. The Bennington properties staff was, as always, very helpful and professional in coordinating the reservation.
Hi Robert, Thank you for your wonderful review of our 5 Goldfinch home. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time in the home and in Sunriver. We look forward to hosting you for many more future Sunriver stays. -Jess Rae

Thank you for providing us with a beautiful home and some great memories. The house was well stocked with amenities we enjoyed (i.e. the espresso machine and other small appliances we could have utilized.

Melissa C. - West Linn
We spent 7 nights in the warm and cozy home. We found the furniture and beds to be very comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with all essentials. We enjoyed the updated finishes and appreciated the owner's obvious pride in the property. The wood burning fireplace was a highlight, especially with the very handy gas igniter. We plan on returning to this home and will gladly recommend it to others.
Hi Melissa, We are so pleased that you and your family had such a lovely stay in 5 Goldfinch. It's a beautiful home and a perfect vacation destination for a snow-filled family Christmas. We look forward to your family visiting us again in the near future.

We had a very good stay. Enjoyed the river view.
Hi Sharon I just love 5 Goldfinch as well! View over the meadow to the river is amazing. Thank you Bennington Properties

Beatiful location right next to the river and along the bike path. House has nice layout with plenty of open common space and 3 nice bedrooms. It worked very well for us and we had a great time hanging out with friends on the big deck. Great rental which we would choose again!
Thank you Heidi. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you all again soon! Christina Guest Services Manager

Allison A. - Newberg
We loved this house. We had as much as 7 family members staying off and on through our visit. Because of the layout it felt larger than it was. It was very quiet and had a beautiful view of the river.
Allison, Thank you for your feedback regarding Goldfinch Ln. 5. We are pleased to hear that you had some nice family time and enjoyed your stay while with us in Sunriver. Please come again as we would love to have you. Best Regards, Misty Wagner Guest Services Team.

Overall a nice place to pets are allowed, so that helped the cleanliness. Home is a bit dated ... oak, oak, everywhere oak. Ugh. Cabinet without knobs .. so the cabinet doors needed a thorough cleaning.
Lawrence J. - Grants Pass
This is the 3rd yr. in a row that we've rented for a week from Bennington. Our experience is excellent. It will be an annual event every year! Don't overlook because of winter, Mt.Bachelor is a winter blast! Easier drive to the mtn. than Bend.
Lawrence, Thank you for your feedback, I am so happy to hear that your stay was so excellent, sounds like you guys even went up to the mountain, That's great!!! We look forward to seeing you again next year. Best Regards, Misty
Response from Bennington Properties, LLC 2015-11-05
This home was very well situated with lots of privacy but still a view of the river through the trees. The bedrooms were great for two couples or two families. The living area is not large but was adequate for four of us and an infant. The kitchen is very well set up with lots of dishes, cookware, etc. <br/>Our major problem with this rental is it was too cold as there are tile floors throughout the main areas. Probably this is a better summer rental for comfort level. We couldn't get the downstairs a comfortable temperature and with no carpets we couldn't put the baby down on the cold floors. Our mistake not realizing there was so much tile. The fireplace upstairs was nice to have but that affected the thermostat and the heat would not maintain the temperature downstairs.
Thank you Joanne for taking the time to give us some very valuable feedback on your recent stay at 5 Goldfinch. We are so pleased that you enjoyed this beautiful house and I agree with you, it has the perfect location so close to the river. I completely understand your concern with having a baby on tile floors during the winter. The owners made the decision to take out the carpet downstairs for cleanliness reasons, as carpets here in the woods tend to get dirty very quickly. While most guests enjoy this improvement, an infant crawling on the floor in February may feel differently. We will be sure to add the mention of the tile floors in the home's description on our website so that guests are aware of this change. Also, please remember that whenever you are staying in any of our properties, you can always call us if you need anything. We would have been happy to bring over some space heaters to warm the floors downstairs. Also we are able to make adjustments to the temperature settings in the house as well. We want our guests to be comfortable in every way when staying in our homes. I hope that we will see you again in Sunriver! Christina Huber Guest Services Coordinator

We had a great time and stayed in a beautiful place it was very clean except for the cigarette butts outside on the deck. The house did not smell like smoke. We started a fire in the wood burning fireplace correctly and had a really smokey house they came over very quickly and told us they forgot to clean the chimney which is strange. They fixed it same day and also TV cable downstairs was not working so they fixed that at same time. These things were minor compared to the nice clean and roomy place.
Wendy thank you for giving us some valuable feedback based on your recent stay at 5 Goldfinch. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time in Sunriver and that the house was a good match for you. I am sorry to hear that we missed some cigarette butts when cleaning the outdoors. Normally we are vigilant about that. I checked on the chimney and it had it's regular service and cleaning in January of 2015 and there have been no more issues with a back up of smoke in the house. The owners of this home are very conscientious about keeping everything in excellent working condition and keeping our guests happy. I hope that you will come back again for a return stay in this lovely home. Christina Guest Services Coordinator

Excellent location. Staff and pre trip information was excellent. Moving into modern times with auto lock boxes and auto check in and check out. House was extremely well stocked with standardized cutlery,plates,fans,etc. Housekeeping excellent. They have thought through groups also with "areas" that several houses can be rented in. Overall a well thought out marketing approach and very good customer experience. Would rent again from this manager.
