R & R Lake House is a 1+ acre lakefront property located on the Ochoco Reservoir, 7 miles east of Prineville in sunny Central Oregon. It has a 2000 square foot home built in 2007. There is a large deck and lawn, hammock, boat dock, above-ground fire pit for roasting marshmallows, rope swing, kids’ plastic wading pool, a row boat, kids’ fishing gear, teeter-totter, tree house, and a wagon to pull small children around the yard.
R & R Lakehouse is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath 2 story structure. The house is 2000 square feet in size with construction completed in July 2007. It is equipped with central heating and air conditioning. The master has a king bed with a full bath. The second bedroom has a set of queen bunk beds. And the third one has a queen sized bed with a second queen sized bed up in a loft. We had in mind parents sleeping with kids, but the kids all like the bunk beds now so who knows! Also upstairs is a large 'bonus room' that at this time is a playroom/reading room but would make a great place for a bunch of kids on blow up beds if the adults feel lucky enough to have some privacy! Downstairs is one big open space with kitchen, dining (chairs for 12) and comfy living room. The kitchen is fully stocked with granite countertops, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, dishes, pots and pans, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, etc. There is a second refrigerator in the garage. The couch makes into a queen bed and there is a half bath on the main level. We are not hooked up to cable or satellite as one of our goals is to 'unplug' from the electronic world. Cell phone reception is marginal. There is one TV you can use to view your camcorder movies or DVDs if you want to bring them. A sliding door leads out onto a huge deck with a propane BBQ. The house has a sand filter septic system which can handle up to 12 people per day with conservative use of the washing machine and shower. There is an outside shower on the deck with hot water for rinsing. Pets are OK in the insulated garage attached to the house.
Ochoco Reservoir is an irrigation reservoir whose water level varies seasonally. The lake is 3+ miles long. The house is located on the slow (5 mph or less) half of the lake which is perfect for swimming, fishing and paddling in small boats. During the high water season (May-June) the lake is about 40 yards from the house; during the low water season the water's edge may be as far as 1/4 mile away. The water gets very warm by the end of the summer and may develop a bloom of algae which is still safe to swim in. The “fast” half of the lake is a 5 minute boat ride down the lake and has unrestricted speeds that make it ideal for wakeboarding, skiing, tubing, jet-skiing, etc. We have a 20 foot long dock which can be easily moved as the water level changes. We also provide a 10’ rowboat for your use. If you have a ski boat or waverunners, these are nice to bring for quick access to the deeper water to wake board and ski. The paved boat ramp is 1.6 miles away at the state park, where you can also camp (see link below). Bring your personal fishing gear as the kids can catch catfish and croppies....more serious fishermen catch trout. We have a large gravel parking area for your boat or trailer.
