Bend House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8-9

It's a surprise at the end of a long driveway twisting and turning through old growth juniper trees, and up the hill! Concealed from view with nine acres of privacy, our home welcomes you as you start your vacation! Walk thru the front gate and up to the porch...come on inside! You will find four bedrooms (one downstairs and three up), an expansive kitchen, centrally located eating area, inviting great room, two bathrooms and a few other rooms just to hang out. Our location is central to Bend, Sisters, and Redmond; a great starting place for your central Oregon adventure. Families with Kids will love the amount of space, Couples or groups traveling together will enjoy the privacy of 3 large bedrooms. Golfers, fishermen, boaters: there is a TON of room in the Barn to stash your gear & cars! Speaking of the Barn, that's where you will find foosball, ping pong, BB Hoop & Card/Game Table. The Well-Equipped Kitchen with it's fantastic View + Counter Space will inspire! The BBQ is just outside on the deck. Enjoy your Morning Coffee out on the deck with the Sun Streaming over the Valley. The dining area seats 6 + 2 counter seats. Booster seat + high chair incl.; there's also a stroller to use. We provide an organic garden in the summertime and at night Mother Nature fills the dark sky with millions of stars! Don't forget to checkout the lookout deck! Great place at night to look for shooting stars-in the afternoon it's fun to sit and watch the goings on in the valley below.

Things to do: Summertime Fun in and around Bend!: The Fall Season in the high desert is all about the outdoors during the day and cozy evenings at home by the fire. The Downtown area of Bend has a summertime Farmer's Market that is there every Wednesday in Mirror Pond Park. The Old Mill District is where you will find many shops and restaurants. Close by is the Les Schwab Amphitheater which sponsors free concerts in June, July and August; along with paid concerts. Check Bend Concerts for the entertainment schedule. You can always take a chair lift up Mt. Bachelor to catch a spectacular sunset, eats, drinks.

Interested in cycling? Bend is the site for many cycling competitions during the summer. There are many areas in and around Bend to go cycling, too.

Things to do: Like to Play Golf?: Central Oregon is a golfer's paradise! Some have called the region the 'Palm Springs of the North'. In the fall, golfing is unhurried and much less crowded. You can go 15-30 minutes north or south of our house and find several wonderful and challenging golf courses.

Fishing + Hiking: Central Oregon is like heaven for fishing enthusiasts! There are so many places to explore! We can email you info, relevant websites, etc. Honestly, a wonderful getaway for the fisherman!

Hiking is Central Oregon's middle name in the summer time! There are so many unspoiled and uncrowded spots, really close to our home. Marvel at the beauty of Smith Rock, check out the back country of the Three Sister's Wilderness area...tons of places to go!

About Louise or Chris

Chris and I have a big family; five kids, two grandchildren, our dog and lots of stuff. We both enjoy being outdoors and that is one of the special appeals that our vacation home has. Years before we purchased our vacation home, we would camp at the nearby Tumalo State Park with all of the kids, friends, dogs. It was fun spending time with the family and camping at the river and we became very fond of the Bend area and especially Tumalo. Now, luckily, we can call this wonderful place our second home!

Louise or Chris purchased this house in 2004

Why Louise or Chris chose Bend

It all started out that we just wanted to have a 'relaxation' spot. We discovered how comfortable we were with the pace of life and the friendly people here in Central Oregon. There is an endless variety of adventures that are just down the road from us in one direction or another.

Our rural area is priceless and yet, we are just minutes away to all of the conveniences of Bend; like shopping, restaurants, hospitals, and entertainment. For those last minute 'oops, I forgot items', there's a little country store in the town of Tumalo that has an amazing selection of stuff! (they even sell gasoline!)

Our home sits on a ridge with interesting out-croppings and great vistas. We have attempted to make the indoors and the outdoors seamless with our choice of the interior paint colors and the casual decor. There are no neighbors around and the privacy is awesome! Being surrounded by big trees, natural landscaping, and a big blue sky is totally wonderful.

What makes this house unique

We love to be outdoors. One of the things we don't really have in our 'full time' house is a place for a big garden. With our vacation home, we have 10 (yep, ten!) raised beds so we can have a great garden. It's a thrill to be able to just go outside and pick some fresh tomatoes, herbs, strawberries...whatever is ripe!

Tumalo Getaway

Great house!! Perfect for families...kids loved being able to explore and we loved not worrying about cars, or strangers. Conveniently located for trips to Bend or Sisters. Such a peaceful place to unwind after our days of baseball. Thanks so much for sharing your home!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5
We recently had a guys weekend for fun and fishing. Everyone in the group commented an how great the place is. The Foosball, Ping pong and card table in the garage were perfect for our group. We grilled every night on the deck grill. The location is secluded but close to Bend. Plenty of room and nice amenities. Some of us slept outside to watch the stars. Yes, we would absolutely return.

Spacious home, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Louise's home for Memorial Day weekend with three other couples, three children under 3 years old, and one elderly Corgi. The home suited our needs very well and Louise ensured we had everything on hand for a great weekend - from pack and plays and booster seats for the kids to extra linens and a welcome kit with coffee and snacks. The house is much nicer than the pictures and the view/surrounding area are beautiful. The house has a very well-stocked kitchen, and included all of the essentials (hand soap, laundry detergent, etc - which isn't always the case with rentals!). The barn and its several games were a hit with our husbands. It's a very short drive (around 10 minutes) into Bend and there are a few little restaurants just up the road. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this property to our friends and relatives - it's such a great deal!

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VRBO HOME

  • 5 of 5
I have been renting homes on VRBO for a few years now as we travel around the Pacific Northwest doing tournaments. I have been in many different types of houses and condo's. YOURS WAS BY FAR THE BEST HOME I HAVE EVER RENTED. I didn't want to leave. You have the loveliest place I have ever been to. Your home is so inviting, the beds are the best and so comfortable. The barn...wow. We didn't even get to use it we were home late and so tired, but I did get to go see it. Your views there are breathtaking. I have never loved a place so much in my life! I will be back to visit this with my family when I am not working. THIS was the best I have ever rented. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the welcome basket as well.

Better than advertised!!

  • 5 of 5
It's not that often that you find a place that's even better than pictured in it's advert, but this is definitely one of them. The house looks like it's had some updates done recently and looks amazing in person.

The view is breathtaking with comfortable outdoor seating to enjoy it. The location is very private, but still a quick drive into Bend. The garage with the game area was a ton of fun. The beds were comfortable and the house certainly wasn't lacking for amenities. To top it off, the owners generously shared the vegetables from the lovely garden area.

Our entire group of six were pleasantly surprised and couldn't have been happier with our stay.

The Bend, Sisters, Redmond area has many recreational opportunities! Winter sports like snowboarding or skiing are available at Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Hood. There are tons of rivers in the area; whitewater rafting is guide-led on the McKenzie river. Go 15-30 minutes in most directions and find a wonderful golf course! There are many bicycle trails along the rivers and high country backpacking throughout the Three Sisters Wilderness Area. Our warm summers are filled with festivals, shows and fairs; a few to mention would be the Sisters Rodeo, Sisters Quilt Fair, Deschutes County Fair, the Crooked River Round Up Rodeo in Prineville and the 4th of July Parade in downtown Bend.

Geology buffs will love exploring lava flows and volcanic areas like Lava Butte, East Lake and Paulina Lake (rent a boat!) and the Lava River Caves. Young and old alike would enjoy a trip to the High Country Desert Museum (about 20 min south).

If you like baseball, catch the Bend Elks at their newly renovated downtown park, so fun!

Other Activities: Rodeos, Floating the River, Bicycle Racing

Ski: Winters are incredible for skiing, snowboarding, x-country, all winter sports. Mt. Bachelor ski area is about a 45 minute drive. World class skiing, snowboarding, other winter activities...The Mountain has been spectacular this year for winter activities! The bonus? You can even go in the summertime; just hop onto the lift and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat. Stunning....

There is also a croquet set you can put on the front lawn area. The mud room/laundry has a large storage closet where you will find the iron and ironing board, the broom, extra bath towels, beach towels, take along cooler. The full-sized new washer/dryer are there, complete with laundry soap and dryer sheets. Check this out!: During the summer we always plan to have some home-grown fresh vegetables (and flowers) growing out in the garden, so help yourself!
