We have been renting out The Bend on Hood Canal since 2007. It truly is a joy meeting our clients and seeing their expression when they see the property in person for the first time. That's what makes it worth while. We designed and built this beautiful gathering house to entertain in. It has so much to offer even if you are just looking to get away to enjoy the water, mountains and a tremendous sunset or celebrating the special moments in your life. Come on out to The Bend on Hood Canal and create memories of a lifetime.
The Owner purchased this house in 2002
Hood Canal has a rejuvating quality about it. It allows you to kick back and take it all in. If you don't feel like going out to one of our fabulous resturants for your meals you might want to stop by the public beaches and pick up dinner yourself. Make sure to get your shellfish license and then head out for clams, oysters, and of course dungeness crab. Sit on the deck, around the firepit or snuggle up by the fireplace and enjoy the fare we do best - Northwest Seafood! Now if you really want to get in touch with Hood Canal how about a kayak ride, boat tour, sunset cruise. How about watching fireworks bursting on every side as you lounge in the spa? The Bend has tremendous view second to none. You have an unobstructed view from Hoodsport to the Skok River on up towards Annas Bay. WOW just doesn't say it but we'll count on you to put it in words when you arrive. The family's in the car, so what are you waiting for?
The Bend is a year round vacation destination property. I have had more families say that their teens were only coming part of the time. I always encourage them to come at the beginning. Once they get here they are elated that they came. Between the pool table, foosball, DVD collection, and of course the Wii entertainment comes easy. Friends that come to do a yearly reunion are rebooking. They love that they can all be in the same space when they want to do the 'remember when' stories and yet have a another floor to get away for a little space or a nap. The kitchen has enough counter space to have 8-10 cooking, prepping, and more if the cook and chief bottlewashers are working at the same time. The compliment that I get the most is thank you for being there to answer questions. I believe 'yes we can' is the answer. So book your reservation and come out to The Bend on Hood Canal and see why we spend so much time smiling around here!
Our family came together for our first ever all family reunion at The Bend. We are a diverse group - 22 in all - ages
2 to 75 - from Australia, England, Montana, and Washington. Our 4 days were over the top - better than ever expected! It was if time stopped for a bit and we were together in this splendid place enjoying each other and our surroundings. We dug clams and oysters for our seafood dinner, sat in the sun, had a campfire, played pool, wii,
had a barbeque, etc. By chance, we discovered the salmon run on the Skokomish River. The fisherpeople among us were delighted - they didn't catch anything, but they had a great time trying!
The Bend is a remarkable facility - elegant and comfortable at the same time. The amenities are top drawer, we didn't need to bring a thing but our food. Try it out - I guarantee you'll love it! Deni Christensen
What an amazing place to stay! We had a blast and woke to a beautiful view every morning! And the owners are amazing!
This is the third time we've stayed at the Bend. Our friends had their wedding there and each time we've stayed has been amazing. We had three families staying this time and there is so much room for all of the kids and adults and the house has all of the comforts of home! Bonnie is an absolute dream to work with and we definitely plan to go back. Thank you, Bonnie, for a wonderful stay. The place was fantastic as always!
This is an absolutely beautiful house which was more than big enough to get everyone together for our weekend of fun and relaxation. We will definitely be back soon!
Long weekend getaway for a group of 10. Perfect spot. Lots of room for everyone, house was immaculate. View is amazing and very quiet. Hosts are wonderful. Will stay here again. Highly recommended!
Thank you so deeply to The Bend for hosting us! We had a big group at their max capacity of 23 people and everyone was SO pleased with the accommodations! Our event brings together a variety of people from wide ranges of life & career to do a skill-share / idea-share workshop weekend of sorts for whatever is interesting or important to them presently. So to find a venue that can please everyone is fun & challenging. The Bend met our needs!
The hosts of this grand house were VERY friendly and easy to work with! Very informative and kind to our questions. We even accidentally left a few items and they were gracious in our retrieval of them without seeming off-put at all. Their workability & kindness made a big difference for me as an organizer.
We highly recommend this rental; its epic beauty that is hard to find elsewhere!
(I was late in my review, and was actually there Oct '13, not Oct '14 -- time flies!)
We stayed at The Bend for a weekend designed to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday. Our 18 guests ranged in age from infant to 80. We had plenty of room and the accommodations were beautiful, spacious and clean. We planned our weekend in advance and found the owner to be very repsonsive to our needs with good communication and easy availability when we needed to discuss our plans. We found everything to be as advertised with no exaggeration in the website's descriptions. I would highly recommend this property. Our group included some motivated chefs and the kitchen space and supplies were plentiful. The granite floors are beautiful but if you are used to cushioned carpet and have any back issues, I recommend bringing cushioned slippers or shoes to increase comfort. We brought our own safety gate to put at the top of the stairs because we had young ones and that came in handy. I can't imagine finding a better place for the weekend we had planned.
