We chose a lifestyle change from a place that many people would envy to call home. We lived in San Diego for nearly 16 years and loved it, but the allure of the natural environment, clean living and overall coolness of Bend had us discussing the move for years.
I found the Tripleknot community while staying at the Tetherow lodge a few times for work. The attractiveness of having a yard with no maintenance was a must for us. A home that’s secure, energy efficient and easy to leave while out traveling were all great points as well. We ended up choosing a plan that accommodates us perfectly. The homes are extremely spacious and while slightly smaller than our last home, we find ourselves using the entire space much more efficiently.
The builder had time to let us customize the kitchen from the appliances we wanted to the selection of modern tiles, counters and flooring. The builder has an onsite designer and a staff to accommodate all the requests and streamline the process. This is not something we were accustomed to in Southern California.
The house is perfect. Our favorite part is the custom whirlpool tub the builder set in one of the bathrooms. The kitchen a close second with dual sinks and all the conveniences as we love to cook.
“Resort living” may sound somewhat cliché, but really does ring true at Tetherow. The convenience of having two restaurants and a hotel on the property to relax in after a long day at work or travel makes you feel like you’re on vacation. The fact that you can ride a mountain bike out of the garage and don’t need to strap it to your truck to find world-class trails is a huge plus. We’re loving Bend more and more each day.
The extraordinary location on the 11th fairway at Tetherow, the vistas and the membership facilities, were the primary reasons we chose to purchase our townhome at Tripleknot. To be able to close the door and not worry about security or garden maintenance during our seasonal absence in the Netherlands were additional incentives.
When we had about ten days to determine our interior design changes, Femke van Velzen of Arrowood Development was extremely well prepared. Her European details appealed to us and we were able to discuss and arrange things successfully via e-mail.
We are so pleased with our move within Bend. The neighborhood, while still developing, has already added to our social life with new friends in the immediate vicinity. Beyond offering a superior golfing experience, Tetherow’s amenities have added a great new dimension to our social activities. The Row is a great place to drop in and share a libation and get a bite to eat, all in the harmony of those enjoying a pub lifestyle. The views at any time of the day always enhance the experience.
We chose Tripleknot Townhomes at Tetherow for a number of reasons. Having lived a mile away for 12 years, we were familiar with the development. We wanted a southwest Bend location, a townhome and a view. All of the requirements were checked off with Tripleknot.
The townhome/resort purchase makes our life easier. No raking, snow shoveling and maintenance. Twenty minutes from the mountain for skiing and five minutes into town.
As we were looking to simplify and downsize, the floor plan choice was easy. Probably the most daunting process in buying our townhome was the overwhelming choices in finishes for the interior. Fortunately, we had ample time and an expert who could cry ‘oh no’ if we made an error. Picking from scratch was like fixing a recipe with lots of ingredients that we had never tried before. When we saw the final product it was a combination of relief and satisfaction.
A good part of our decision to buy was the way the townhomes were built. We love the rough cedar siding and metal roof details on the exterior. Inside, exposed beams and beautiful wood compliment the natural environment outside.
Certainly the Tetherow restaurant and pub provide a great focal point for the resort lifestyle. We think that once the pool and fitness center are completed, it will really make it seem like we’re living the dream in a beautiful resort.
I am planning for retirement, and wanted a carefree home in a beautiful community. I wanted a contemporary-style mountain home, with primary living on the main floor. Tripleknot gave me all of it!
I like the spaciousness of all the rooms, the open layout and master suite on the main level. The high ceilings and expansive windows bring the outside in, and the view is incredible.
Tripleknot gives you the pleasure of living in this beautiful community in a townhome with a maintenance-free lifestyle. Looking forward 10 years, I won’t want to worry about house or lawn maintenance as I age.
