Delightfully furnished Ranch Cabin eight with the largest RC lawn, has a master bedroom- bath suite downstairs, a couple bedroom upstairs(with down comforters) and also a bedroom with two twin bunkbeds. The bathroom sink area upstairs is outside the bath-shower to allow more users. Also upstairs is a loft area with many games, a couch and coffee table, a desk and book and game shelves, TV, VCR, DVD player. Since we like to spend time at the cabin ourselves, our furniture and art reflect our taste rather than catering to fears of things being broken or art being unappreciated.Likewise, our custom spice rack is filled with gourmet spices. Kitchen counters, floor and two couches are relatively new . Kitchen was repainted recently and other rooms May 2011, new Jenn-air stove put in a few years ago and upstairs couple bedroom also painted recently..Dining table can be made to sit 4 to 13!
The cabin is near enough the pool,shared with neighbors only, to reach it easily but not hear people there. A secluded tennis court, unknown to many at SR, is a two minute walk out the back doors and the lovely duck pond with spectacular views of Mt. Bachelor is just down the bike path in the direction of the nearby Nature Center. Different, equally beautiful portions of the Deschutes are a five minute bike ride away in opposite directions. The mall and Sunriver Lodge are about a mile away.
We also have an outdoor table and many lounge chairs.
Keywords: Cabin --really a house, ( not built of log on log) but lots of lovely wood inside , rafters and beams which give it a cabin air.
We are an active retired couple with 3 adult children, ages 34-47 . Our past careers were in clinical psychology ,accounting and theater . Rob has become a jock in his older age, entering ski race contests and playing tennis as much as possible. Mary paints at least one water color a week and walks an hour every day (sometimes with weights on her ankles!). We are also avid readers and hikers. We love to visit our friends and relative and be hosts to them in either Sunriver or Virgin Gorda. We are grateful for our good health , loving family and friends and the fulfilling and enjoyable life we lead.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 1987
We have owned our house for more than twenty years, originally sharing it with two other couples. However, we love it so much that we finally own it by ourselves. We don’t even like to go many other places in the USA for vacations because we like to be here best of all. We find this the ideal place for what we most enjoy in life: gorgeous scenery, beautiful hikes, sunny ,dry weather, and a comfortable cabin for being inside, for reading, for sitting around fires, for painting inside or out. Rob loves tennis and we are almost across the street from the least known tennis courts in Sunriver; we have a raft that we love to float in on the Deschutes. We both love to bike ride (Rob once rode from Oregon to California) and Mary loves walks and rides on the bike paths. Rob often bikes on the mountain trails.
Please see the above. I can add here that since Mary loves art, she always sees the new exhibits at the Lodge Gallery and beautiful Sunriver library. We also have come to know and love Bend, its lovely stores, good grocery stores ( organic ones, and fish ones, too), its parks and festivals. We have been members of the High Desert Museum and consider it a must for any visitor. We also love the walks through the lava beds and the Obsidian Trail; the Green Lakes Trail is our favorite of any trail anywhere so we still hike it every year. We enjoy Trout House and Meadows food. Yum!
These are comments in our guest book in Sunriver; I forget to ask people to also their remarks on the internet so I am copying them here. If you would like to know the real names of the people, I can e-mail them and ask if it is OK to share their names:July 20 ‘08We had a great time this week, as usual. Our kids liked feeding the chipmunks peanuts and LOVED IT when a deer and fawn came and sat down right outside the deck.

It is truly a lovely place to relax and forget one’s carries and worries, surrounded by trees, crisp air, blue skies, and even several deer. I can never get enough of the bike paths in spring down by the river.You’ve really provided for every need for a vacationer. I also enjoyed the very impressive collection of art, which made the home see so personal!Thank you, thank you. I certainly want to come back again…and again.J.Ru…(Euene)
My husband and I have stayed at the Dwan's cabin a couple of times and will certainly stay there again when we go to Sun River. The cabin is cozy and comfortable, the furniture attractive, and the art on the walls quite wonderful. The kitchen is well furnished with everything needed to cook even a fancy meal. We went with another couple and appreciated that the layout allowed plenty of space to gather in the downstairs living-dining-cooking area and privacy and separation for the bedroom areas. We didn't need the third bedroom, but its 2 bunk beds would accommodate families with children.
The cabin is well located, not too far from the mall, but not so close that there's noise or traffic. The setting, with its pines and large lawn, is peaceful and serene.
The Dwans are friendly and helpful hosts, responsive to requests and pleasant to deal with. They're very knowledgeable about the area and gave us useful tips on things to do and places to eat. We chose the cabin the first time because it was a great bargain. We went back because it's also a great place to stay.
We spent a fabulous five days and four nights at Mary's lovely cabin. We loved the location and proximity to Sunriver Village as well as wonderful activities like the High Desert Museum and Mt. Bachelor for skiing. It was also within easy walking distance to the river. Everything in the cabin was well-maintained and very cozy. We enjoyed cooking in the well-appointed kitchen and relaxing and watching movies in the living room. Mary was very responsive and helpful. Thank you for a great stay!
My wife and I stayed at this sunriver rental for our anniversary, this place is nice and cozy, but the upstairs area with two additional bedrooms and an extra bathroom makes this a great place to stay for families. The best part of this property is dealing with the owners. The owners are very accomodating and are more than happy to do what they can to make your stay at sunriver great. When we plan our next trip to sunriver we plan on staying here again. We had a blast.
We rented this cabin for a family reunion. There was a bit of trouble with our reservation and needing to make travel arrangements for our son's left-behind teddy bear, but the Dwans took care of everything and coordinated closely with us so we didn't have to worry or change our plans with family. We enjoyed the cabin tremendously and it accommodated our needs perfectly - good location, very neat and clean, well stocked kitchen, great amenities like pool access, and WiFi for those of us who had to stay in touch with work and those needing directions to places like the High Desert Museum.
The SHARC was new since our last Sunriver stay and that was a real treat. We also took a trip to the Nature Center for an astronomy show that the 7-10 year old kids in our group liked. The bunk beds are great for multiple smaller kids, but may be a little short for taller teenagers. Thanks again, and we plan on keeping this listing handy for future trips to Sunriver.
We've stayed at six or seven of the ranch cabins over the past ten years -- we love the location, the cozy cabins, and the pool. We've had a couple of misses, but this cabin is a hit. Things like clean carpets, updated appliances, and the way the place feels like someone's getaway, not just a rental -- they all add up. On price/value, I'd put this one at the top of the list. On top of all that, the owner was willing to work with us when a vehicle breakdown/repair caused us to miss our arrival date.
We look forward to coming back!

Another terrific visit to Ranch Cabin #8! As usual, we were comfortable and had everything we needed to relax and take advantage of the best of Central Oregon. Thanks for providing us with an oasis of delight.
