The large wolf room, also upstairs, sleeps 2 in a king bed. The third upstairs bedroom, located over the garage, sleeps 4 -- two in a new king bed and 2 in a queen sleeper. This huge room, with its own special amenities, includes a sitting area, a moveable privacy screen, 2 large closets and a gas log fireplace; while the decor focuses on bears and other wildlife. All 3 upstairs bedrooms overlook the river directly below. A 4th bedroom downstairs sleeps 4 in a king bed and queen  sleeper; the decor features a Pendleton Indian blanket spread with outdoor scenes and a collection of crosses over the headboard. All three bedrooms provide flat screen TV's with DirecTV. The loft also has a TV suitable for hooking up game consoles.

A front sun porch with floor to ceiling windows provides the perfect place to watch the birds and other wildlife. The banquet-sized back porch not only hosts a large charcoal grill but also two long picnic tables, a round glass topped table, a swing, bird feeders (bring your own birdseed!), and a wood rack. A small yard off the elevated porch gives you access to the river which has just been cleaned up and stabilized thanks to a grant from the state and the city. Other special amenities for you to enjoy include a Jacuzzi tub featuring a rain shower head, a full sized laundry room with washer, dryer, and storage shelves (detergent provided), a Keurig coffee machine (bring your own K-cups), and a vacant lot next door where kids can use up their excess energy. Open the windows to enjoy the fresh clean mountain air and the sounds of the river as you drift off to sleep on luxury linens. Please see notes for suggestions on what to bring on your Red River Vacation to make your stay more comfortable!

A complete WOW working with the staff at Red River Real Estate from start to finish.
Absolutely HANDS DOWN the best vacation stay of all time!!!...soooo much better than staying in a hotel and just felt like home for all of our family to make amazing memories in. Everything about it was perfect; loved the deck and small yard for little ones and being able to grill out. LOVED being right on the river so that we could stay out till late hours under the stars, next to the fire and enjoy lovely sound of the rushing river. We could NOT have planned a more amazing vacation!!! THANK YOU!! ***AND, I would like to say that the staff we dealt with at Red River Real Estate were the nicest ever! Even when others in our family were calling to make a partial payment, we were helped by the sweetest upbeat people. Such a WOW! THANK YOU!!

I found Red River Real Estate on the internet, gave them a call and was immediately emailed four houses to rent that fit our needs. My family got to look over each property and vote on the one we wanted. One phone call later, the house was reserved. Such an easy process.
We stayed in Birds and Bears Retreat and loved it. There were 13 of us, 8 adults, 2 teens and 3 children. The house is perfect for large groups with age differences. The rooms are large, beds are comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. It has pots and pans that can accommodate cooking for a large group as well as enough dishes to serve everyone without having to use paper products.
