A little Nicklaus, a little Neapolitan: that's what you'll get when you make this Bend vacation rental villa your own special getaway. Located among the manicured, Jack Nicklaus designed fairways of Pronghorn Auberge Resort (about a half-hour north of Bend), you'll be ideally situated both for a great game of golf, and the soothing waters of a hot tub after your day on the links. At every turn, inside and out, you'll have an amazing view of the sage-filled expanse of Oregon's high desert. Inside, you'll relax in an atmosphere of unparalleled elegance, including a grand gas fireplace and a designer kitchen with a sub-zero wine fridge!
St...ep inside the living area of this amazing home, with its dark, gleaming hardwood floors, plush leather sofas, and solid, classic furnishings reminiscent of...what else? An Italian villa! Floor to ceiling walls line the perimeter, affording you a view of the surrounding landscape that just might make you feel you're still outside. When it's nice (and there's a good chance of that on Oregon's high desert with an average 300 days of sunshine), gather out on the patio, fire up the gas grill, and visit over a barbecued repast. When cold winds blow, you'll be warm and cozy inside. Flip on the fireplace, grind some of your favorite coffee beans in the kitchen, and watch a DVD (make sure you pack some) on the big flat screen over the fireplace. Check the headlines on your favorite blog with the free WiFi, or watch cable news.
When you're hungry, Pronghorn offers three dining options right in the resort where you can choose anything from a fancy entree to a well-stacked Reuben. But why go out when you can put your culinary skills to the test in this gorgeous, fully equipped kitchen. Recessed in the beautifully crafted cabinetry are state of the art, stainless steel appliances like a Wolf six-burner range with dual ovens and Wolf microwave, a big double fridge, and stunning granite counter tops capping a bar where three guests can sit on padded chairs and chat with the cook as he or she works. Enjoy your meal at the elegantly crafted dining table as you watch the sun set on the rugged landscape outside.
With four bright and roomy bedrooms - each with its own unique perks and character - this amazing vacation villa will accommodate up to eight in luxury and comfort. Two of the bedrooms are downstairs. One, with an overhead bunk and a big closet with mission doors, is perfect for the little ones. Around the corner is a large suite with a queen bed on a sleigh-style frame, a private entrance, a study nook with a desk, and an attached bathroom with walk-in shower. The master bedroom, upstairs, has a king bed, its own fireplace, a private entrance to the terrace, and an attached full bath with walk-in shower and jetted tub. On this floor is a fourth bedroom, also with a queen bed, with yet another full bath. In all, there are four full and one half bath. There's also a small laundry room with a sink and stacked washer and dryer.
Located about a half-hour north of trendy and exciting Bend, Pronghorn Auberge Resort is a world apart, and a world of fun! Anchoring the resort is, of course, the Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole golf course that will afford you magnificent views of the Cascades and ancient rock formations that are way above par. After you put the clubs away, there's other stuff to do too! Head over to the 55,000 sq. ft. clubhouse where, in addition to a magnificent view, you can work out at the fitness center, pamper yourself at the spa, check out the art gallery, or visit the golf shop. Or, hook up with some outside activities - like swimming at two pools, tennis, hot tubs, and basketball - at the Trailhead headquarters. In winter, skiers can hit the slopes at Mount Bachelor (about 20 minutes south), or Hoodoo (a little over an hour).
Spend your next getaway at this incredible villa tucked away among the fairways, sage, and juniper trees of Oregon's high desert and experience the region's unique combination of climate, rugged beauty, and recreational activities.
