If you’re coming to Bend for a vacation, or business, why stay anywhere else! We will accommodate you even if it’s just you and a guest. This spectacular home is on the Deschutes River just North of downtown Bend on the mile long stretch of river just below Pioneer Park. This slow moving and breathtaking section of the Deschutes river is an Icon to those that live here and enjoyed by all that hike along her banks. The house has a private dock, kayaks and a canoe for your paddling enjoyment right off the back lawn.
The home has 6 bedrooms, 4 gas fireplaces, 5 full bathrooms, outdoor hot tub with river setting, indoor jetted tub with river view. There is also a steam shower in one of the upstairs baths. With 4 king sized beds, 2 double beds and 4 single beds, the home can sleep up to 14 comfortably. The gourmet kitchen is stocked with every utensil you could imagine, you won’t have to look twice to find what you need.
Walk minutes to downtown Bend or get on your bike and head to your favorite pub or restaurant. If you are here on business, you will be excited to know that the convention center is just a short distance away on the other side of the river, within 5 minutes walking distance. The Rivers Edge Golf course is also directly across the river and within minutes from the home. Take a 2 or 4 mile run around the river trail which loops from the home, through Rivers Edge golf course, up the western bank of the river and the back along the eastern banks of the river. If you’re a water enthusiast, get into one of the kayaks, or canoes and paddle up river to the first street rapids and back, you’re sure to see otters, swans and many ducks along the way. After you’re done exploring the outdoors, jump into the hot tub or just sit on the deck and look out at the spectacular view.
There are (7) TV’s, two with surround sound, DVD, VCR and stereo with built in speakers throughout. The kitchen has a commercial range with 4 burners, 1 griddle, 1 grille and 2 ovens, two dishwashers, a refrigerator freezer, microwave and convection oven along with a wine fridge in the island. The rec. room has a pool table, large deluxe feather cushion sectional for watching your favorite movies and a wet bar with sink and refrigerator. There is also a large gas BBQ on the upper deck right off the kitchen and dining room.
Your stay also includes the use of the 40’x30’ garage space which you can get 4 auto’s into and many bikes on the wall hooks if needed. (we do supply several cruiser bikes for your use as well as three Scott mountain bikes, SM, MD, LG).
I can go on and on, but the place speaks for itself. Please, just take care of it, enjoy your stay, and come back to visit us again!

Bend has been my home for over 30 years and my wife and I plan on staying here indefinitely. The climate here is perfect for all the outdoor activities we like to partake in such as bicycling, skiing, golfing and playing tennis. Having a peaceful home on the river has made raising our children a wonderful experience as they have enjoyed kayaking, fishing and swimming in the river for many years. We are happy that we built a home that will make such a fantastic vacation rental and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as we have.
Doug Smith purchased this lodge in 2001
See my previous review. Simply the best. After 3 stays we still find cool stuff that we didn't see before. This trip went down to the dock and visited the mated swans. There is even a rope swing into the river for the young manly types. You can cook anything in the kitchen. Foodies will go nuts for the stove/oven. Great golf nearby and you don't have to pay Sunriver/Pronghorn prices.
Similar to what other guests have commented, the house was perfect and the pictures did not do it justice. The outside deck was very peaceful as were the grounds as a whole. The owner has a knack for attention to detail for he supplied the residence with all of the items (bikes, kayaks, helmets, a boat, etc.) a visitor would want/need. All of my friends that stayed wondered what the owner's residence looked like since he wasn't living here. Regardless, I felt very fortunate to be able to vacation in his home. Cheers!
My family and I recently stayed at this gorgeous house for a small family reunion. We all absolutely LOVED it! The house itself is fantastic, ample room and stocked with plenty of fun toys (kayaks, canoes, bikes, pool table). The location was also perfect. We had a quite setting on the river but a short bike ride into town. Next time we return to Bend, this house will be a MUST for us!
What a great place for some R & R. The house is beautiful and so well equipped. Our guys really enjoyed the pool table for lots of friendly competition. The setting could not be better; river, pines, geese, swans, you name it, it is all there for your pleasure. We especially liked the location because it has great access to the Parkway and a grocery store is close by. We are all looking forward to a return visit.
It was amazing. Just walking up to the house with the creek and pond at the door set the tone for a relaxing getaway. Stepping into the spacious entry the first thing that caught my eye was the massive livingroom with rustic beams and views to die for. This home is perfect for large active families. Every thought was given with guests in mind. Our girls getaway was perfect, even with our large group we weren't tripping over each other. Plus with all the bathrooms there was no waiting to get ready which left more time for enjoying the area.
The house was perfect! Great location in Bend, with beautiful views along the river. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook up a meal for a large group. And tons of space for everyone to spread out. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. We hope it is available next year for our family ski trip!
