Fun, well-equipped cabin with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our family - very casual, good kitchen and BBQ for making our own food, and great amenities. It was in a good location, with easy access to Bend and Sisters, yet private and away from it all. The view from the upstairs deck was amazing! We enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor shower. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the "playhouse" (really more like a little studio cottage) was great for guests who didn't want to get up early in the morning like the rest of us. We found it very clean and sufficiently stocked with supplies, towels, sheets, etc. Mike was really responsive to our questions. Great roads nearby for road biking. The next time we visit the Bend area, we will stay here!

We enjoyed the home and location

  • 5 of 5

The views of the snow capped mountains are great. Lots of wildlife. The home was well equipped with comfortable furnishings and very clean. The outdoor shower and hot tub are wonderful. We will return.

Retreat

  • 3 of 5

The stay here was very enjoyable. I loved the quick and easy access from Redmond/Sisters but yet still felt like it was secluded enough to be totally relaxing. Quick drive into Sisters for an enjoyable outing but then back to the tranquil setting. The outdoor shower was a treat! The booking, reservations and correspondence all went very well. Mike was very helpful in answering any questions and was quick to respond.

Gateway to the central cascades

  • 5 of 5

This place is much more spacious than the images reflect. Our group included 11 adults and 1 large dog and by all accounts was incredibly comfortable for meals, lounging, and sleeping. The views were amazing...north, middle, and south sisters as well as broken top! The accommodations within were great, especially the tub out back! This place is just far enough off the beaten path to feel a sense of "away," while also being staged proximal to the Metolius River, Mt. Bachelor, 3 Sisters wilderness, and Smith Rock! You would be missing a real gem if you chose to overlook this place.

Just gemutlich!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely cabin for a week in July with my pets. Mike was a kind and gracious host and very responsive to email and later by phone.

The cabin sits on 10 acres in a community with other cabins and some year around residents. It sits about 10 minutes away from Sisters and about 20 minutes to Bend. There are homes on either side of the cabin. The closest home is situated forward on their property while the cabin is situated towards the back so you really can’t see or hear the neighbors. The other home is much further away and can’t be seen. The only thing that is visible is their horse corral.

The property is very natural and is enjoyable to stroll in the morning and evenings.

The cabin has two levels. The main living area with the kitchen and one bathroom is upstairs to take advantage of the lovely mountain views. There are 16 stairs from the front door up to the upper level. I mention this because the one of the previous review made it sound like it was outrageous and that’s not the case. The upstairs is very cozy with a TV and lots of games. The house is situated east to west so you can watch a lovely sunrise and beautiful sunsets.

There are windows on all sides of the upper level with screens and a large slider to the amazing deck. There were NO bugs at all except an occasionally month. It was so comfortable; I almost never closed the door. My dogs enjoyed going in and out onto the deck during the heat of the day. They also enjoyed watching the jackrabbits and chipmunks.

The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, mixers and other things making it really pleasant and easy to cook. Only need to bring the groceries.

The bedrooms are on the lower level with the outdoor shower and a half bath. It was always cool and comfortable down there during our stay. It was in the 90s on multiple days. There is also a washer and dryer on this level.

The backdoor opens out to the outdoor shower and hot tub.

My week’s stay at this cabin was restful and very enjoyable. I think it’s a great place for a weekend retreat or a base for exploring Bend, Sisters and the surrounding area.

Mike is most helpful. If you are looking for a comfortable home away from home, this cabin is it.

Perfect start to the summer!

  • 5 of 5

Sorry I am just getting this review written, but....our group of moms and teen daughters spent a lovely block of time celebrating the start of summer in this comfortable home in Sisters. The girls spent endless hours exploring, catching lizards ( and a frog!), spotting jack rabbits and cute little bunnies, making friends with the neighbor horse. We played games, cooked , ended our days with a luxurious soak in the hot tub. The days found us exploring the area...we hiked around Smith Rock, had an adventure going up to the observatory and lava flows. There are endless things to do and see in this region, and this home is comfortable and in a lovely setting with stunning views. The girls loved staying in the bunk house, their own little cabin, which meant their late night giggling didn't keep us up! The outdoor shower with a view of that wide open sky was another unexpected perk of this great home!

The owner is kind and super easy to work with. I hope we get the opportunity to return....I can't recommend it highly enough!
