LUXURIOUS, SPACIOUS CABIN, PRIVATE SETTING ON TUMALO LAKE

Bend Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Tumalo Lake Lodge is located 12 miles west of Bend, Oregon on a unique 640 acre private parcel of forested land surrounded on all sides by the Deschutes National Forest, with limitless trails for hiking, biking, x-country skiing and snowshoeing.

The Creekside Cabin is a high-end masterpiece of craftsmanship, constructed of huge rough sawn Douglas Fir beams, Cedar siding and shakes. Huge windows in every room provide a tree-house sensation with amazing views of nature in every direction. The large wrap-around deck and comfortable Adirondack chairs and rockers allow for relaxing in the fresh air while taking in the gorgeous natural surroundings and views.

The beautiful furnishings create an ambiance of casual luxury. The cabin's interior features knotty pine wood walls, doors and trim, Knotty Alder cabinets, and granite countertops. The first floor open floor plan includes radiant heated floors with Italian tile and decorative rugs. The living area has a wood burning stove and huge windows with lake views. The dining room is amazing with floor to ceiling windows on all sides. The kitchen area features granite countertops and stainless appliances including a Jenn-Air professional stove. A first floor bedroom affords views of Tumalo Lake

The second floor features gorgeous high-pitched wood ceilings, three bedrooms with private baths and a second living room area. The upstairs living area has huge windows with commanding views of the lake. Bedrooms feature queen or king size iron beds with quilts, cozy down comforters and pillows, and 500 thread count sheets. Each bedroom has amazing views. The private baths feature either a large walk-in shower or shower over bathtub, granite countertops, Italian tile, radiant heated floors, luxury towels, organic shampoo and body lotion amenities, and hair dryer.

Guestbook comments from the owner
There were 11 of us here and this cabin had more than enough room for all of us. Had a great time canoeing, paddle boarding, even used the raft. The hike around the lake was beautiful. The Great Horned Owls made us feel right at home. Thanks for everything- your cabin and property are amazing. Hope to be back soon.

Bill, after a prior career in business consulting, has been active in real estate development and rentals for nearly 30 years. He is excited to finally apply his first degree in Forestry to the 640 acres of trees at Tumalo Lake. Tracy, along with her interior design and 'Inn Keeper' responsibilities, is a Global Director in the Clinical Research field

Bill Houck purchased this cabin in 2005

Bill & Tracy, during a 2005 visit to Bend, fell in love with the Tumalo Lake property and the original cabins which had been built in the 1930s. After moving to Bend in 2007, several years were spent obtaining necessary land use and building permits and trenching 1 1/2 miles to bring in electricity and phone. Construction began in 2009. The Hillside Cabin was completed in October 2011. The Creekside Cabin was completed in June, 2012. The Lakeside East Cabin was completed in June, 2013. Eventually, an additional cabin and a central lodge will be built.

Central Oregon, and Bend, Oregon in particular, are well reknown for both Summer and Winter sports. Enthusiasts from near and far visit for hiking, biking (road and mountain), skiing (Nordic and Alpine), snow shoeing, boating, fly fishing, rock climbing, etc. Tumalo Lake Lodge is ideally situated in the middle of the nationally known 'Phil's Trail' mountain biking trail system. In Winter, these and other trails and shelters form an extensive snow shoeing/x-country trail network. Tumalo Falls (97 feet tall) is a 3-4 mile hike away. Tumalo Creek, 2 miles away, affords fly fishing opportunities. While staying at Tumalo Lake you are staying on a private square mile of forested land surrounded by the Deschutes National Forest but still only 12 miles to Bend.

March 14, 2014--Spring is coming early this year--still lots of snow at higher elevations, but melting out around the cabins.

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our first family vacation in 11 years and we had the most wonderful time. The Creekside Cabin was beautiful, comfortable and we had plenty of room for the 6 of us. Lots of things to do and within 10 minutes of Bend but we mostly enjoyed just being together at the cabin fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. Bill was great in showing us around and answering any questions we had about the area. He has really created a little piece of heaven on Tumalo Lake. Thank you Bill, we will be back!

Such a treat!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with 2 other families for a weekend of winter fun. The house was gorgeous, comfortable, plenty of room for everyone. Being up there in the snow felt like we were miles away from civilization, yet with all of the amenities we needed...we especially loved the radiant floors and hot tub after a fun day in the snow. It was beautiful...peaceful...a perfect weekend getaway with great friends. We snowshoe'd around the lake and created a great sledding hill right in front of the house. Can't wait to go back...and I'm sure it's equally magical in the summer! Thank you Bill for creating such a great getaway!

Bob and family of seven

We had a most wonderful time at the Creek Side home on Tumalo Lake. This is an beautifully architectural and well constructed home reminding me of a Frank Lloyd Wright. The kitchen is well stocked and making meals for seven easy. Linen and beds clean and comfortable, but who couldn't sleep so well in such a peaceful setting. Trails and time on the lake, canoeing and fishing fabulous.
We caught and released four trout 12-14 inch. They are strong fighters and will live for another fisherman.
Bill, owner and developer was very helpful and available for all needs we only needed kitchen towels which he provided. We plan to return, a stay in the winter with snow might prove interesting. Well done Bill. I am very pleased with the standards and reliability of VRBO.

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently stayed in the creek side cabin and we will for sure be back to this peaceful secluded place. We had such a wonderful stay. We had 3 adults and 5 kids ranging from teenager to 8 years old we all fit in this house with room to spare and all we were completely entertained by the lake, the nearby trails and the games that came stocked in the house. There is so much to do in Bend. We had fun day trips but all the kids had way more fun paddling around the lake. We really didn't need to leave! The house seemed brand new. It was well appointed, beds were extremely comfortable and Bill was very helpful with anything you needed. Please note although the photos are nice, they do not do this place justice. It is way nicer than the pictures.

We couldn't have dreamed of a more peaceful, enjoyable home to spend our family vacation!

What an amazing home! What an amazing week! We truly couldn't have been happier with the beautiful setting, cabin, and accommodations we experienced at Tumalo Lake. It was the perfect base for us to enjoy all our favorite recreational activities.... mountain biking, hiking, golfing, trail running, paddleboarding, canoeing, and brew pub hopping. The best part is that almost all of these activities were within a few feet of our Creekside Cabin. Bill and Tracy were the perfect hosts - welcoming, accommodating and great to work with. They have truly gone "above and beyond" to create the most beautiful vacation home imaginable. Everything was perfect.... the beds were great, the kitchen extremely well equipped, views breathtaking, the furniture comfortable, decorations beautiful. spacious rooms (great to have bathrooms for each bedroom), and great lake access. We would not have changed a thing. Can't wait to return next year!

Simply Fabulous

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this cabin! The rooms were nice and spacious, both upstairs and downstairs living areas are comfortable and well suited for a crowd. Each room was perfect, the beds comfortable, everything spotless. Every window had a great view. Beautiful, quiet, private location. The kids loved canoeing on the lake and the adults enjoyed the hot tub and the view from the porch. The nearby Tumalo Falls are a good hike and well worth the effort to see. This cabin would be a great get-away for writers and others who would like to get away from it all in style.
