About Carrie Matsushita & Bob Bumstead

We love the outdoors (fishing, skiing, biking, hiking, etc.) and found the perfect vacation home from which to enjoy our favorite recreational activities. We invite you to experience the Central Oregon Cascades! Bob and Carrie

Carrie Matsushita & Bob Bumstead purchased this house in 2009

Why Carrie Matsushita & Bob Bumstead chose Central Oregon

The Oregon Cascades are a true gem. Easy access for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, downhill and cross-country skiing at nearby National Forest Service trails, Willamette Pass Ski Resort, Gold Lake Snow Park, Mt. Bachelor and more. Roads are plowed in the winter for safe travel; and spring, summer, and fall, are picture-perfect for visiting Central Oregon’s beautiful lakes for hiking and fishing. Oregon's 2nd highest waterfall at Salt Creek Falls is easily accessible and only 15-minutes away. The Pacific Crest Trail is only minutes away and offers hikes through beautiful forests and to nearby lakes. Crater Lake National Park and Diamond Lake are only an hour away, and there are an amazing number of beautiful lakes within a 50-mile radius. It’s the perfect getaway anytime of the year.

What makes this house unique

We often invite friends and family to spend time at the cabin. It works well for both large and small groups, as the open floor plan offers plenty of space for everyone. When it's just the two of us, the cabin serves as a cozy getaway from urban life. While at the cabin, it's always nice to return from a fun day recreating outdoors to a cozy fire, a glass of wine, and good company.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I couldn't possibly tell you in words what a marvelous time we had. Everything was perfect! I love to cook and the kitchen was so well stocked with every dish and utensil that I'm accustomed to using at home.... even the Ninja Turtle magnets where a reminder of our favorite Saturday cartoons and movies. Seriously my oldest asked if I had brought them lol.

God Bless and thanks again for opening up your home to us.

In the Forest

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay in your beautiful cabin in the woods. The drive to Crater Lake is very refreshing. Salt Creek Falls was a one of kind waterfall and it is very close. Cresent Lake is right there and is a must see. We had a wonderful lunch at the lodge on Cresent Lake sitting under huge trees watching the boats and relishing in the fresh breeze. You need to plan a WHOLE DAY for Crater Lake. WOW!!!! is just a starter. Your cabin more than met our needs and we will tell all of our friends that travel about it. Tks., TerryB....

Great house for a big group, nice location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bummy's place! The owners are very responsive and understanding when trying to figure out some technical issues. The house is equipped with plenty of anything you could need, I think the only thing we were wishing for is a fire pit out back ;) Overall, perfect for a big group and everyone enjoyed the house. Great location for visiting the beaches at Crescent Lake, we enjoyed Simax and Tranquil Cove. Thanks so much! Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Our cabin is located in a forested setting adjacent to the Deschutes National Forest. Summer is designated with extreme fire danger,, which is why we don't have a fire pit. However, winter months are low fire danger months and we do bring out a fire pit for our guests to use. (Firewood available at the Crescent Lake Sportsman Store/gas station one mile from cabin). We hope you return to experience a winter wonderland at Bummy's Place cabin. We provide sleds and snowshoes.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

I am part of four couples who rent a house every February to engage in winter sports and get re-acquainted. In 2017 we rented this property. The house looks new, and is extremely well-appointed and very well supplied with kitchen equipment and other supplies. Working with the owners was also an absolute pleasure.

The house is located near snow parks for snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Willamette Pass Ski Resort is also very close if downhill skiing/snow boarding is your preference.

Without hesitation we voted to return next February.

Another great visit

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time that my extended family has all come to stay at the cabin, but the first summer visit. We had a great time, as usual. Carrie and Bob provide countless thoughtful touches around the house that make it feel comfortable and home-like. This time, we especially liked lounging on the deck in the comfy chairs, and driving over to Davis Lake for some fishing. Thanks again for your hospitality!

The annual fishing trip

Great cabin. Couldn't ask for anything more. Bonus room is a must!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The bonus room apt and extra full bath seems to be ideal for multiple families/friends who would like a little more separation of space, privacy, and quiet time. Thanks for the feedback. We hope you book again in the future!

Great time with friends

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples stay at the place comfortably. Great TV to watch the Super Bowl. Our trip was for snowmobiling. We had hoped to ride from the property, but due to the low snow conditions we were able to do some nice rides by driving to some of the local snowparks. It is nice to each have our own bedrooms. Very well equipped and set up for our sized group.
