Property Amenities

From the moment you arrive at the timbered entrance and pass through its gates, it’s clear that Tanager stands out among Central Oregon’s most desirable boutique residential communities.

Tanager features 21 waterfront homesites on 2 acre lots with 8 acres of open space, spread across 175 acres of forest, meadows, lakes, river, and canyons.

A network of trails and paths throughout the property connect homesites with the two lakes around which life at Tanager is centered. The north lake is dedicated to non-motorized recreation such as swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking, and fishing, while on the larger south lake owners enjoy exclusive access to a regulation water ski lake complete with turnaround islands, boat launch, and mooring slips.

With 80 percent of the acreage preserved as dedicated open space, Mother Nature is a priority and Tanager will provide critical year-round habitat
for wildlife including native deer and elk populations, migratory waterfowl, raptors, and more, including the community’s namesake bird, the Western Tanager.

Because water is the focal point, and in an effort to maximize open space, Tanager’s 21 lots are clustered around the property’s three primary bodies of water, with 11 homesites bordering the south lake, four homesites perched on the rimrock overlooking tranquil Tumalo Creek, and three homesites on the shores of the north lake.
