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!

Our Favorite

  • 5 of 5

My family loves this cabin. Cozy and comfortable with amazing views of the mountains. We were lucky with clear skies this trip, and the stars at night were stunning. The owner is very, very helpful and always willing to fix anything that needs fixing. The kitchen is well stocked, the hot tub nice and hot. It's a great location for hiking, biking and skiing. We hope to be back!

Remote Sportsmens' Cabin

  • 1 of 5

The cabin was, as advertised isolated and remote--with lovely views of the Cascades. It was down a long dirt road with a locked gate. That is the good news.

The bad news is that we were there during a heat wave, and the temperature ranged all week from 92-98! That certainly was not the fault of the owner. However, the cabin needs some renovation and amenities to make it a comfortable retreat. As it is, it was close to uninhabitable in the heat. There is no screen on the one sliding door to the back deck. And no shades on the West facing windows. Shades on other windows need to be replaced. There is only one bathroom with tub and shower--upstairs. The other is a half bath and is on the first floor with all the beds--which are arranged family style. No place to hang out downstairs, which was about 83 degrees. It was waaaay too hot to go upstairs--except quite late at night when we opened all the windows and turned on the two small fans, Needless to say, we spent very little time at the cabin--mainly to sleep, which was comfortable enough.

A big drawback is for seniors--or anyone with movement difficulties. There are 19 stairs going straight up as one enters the house. They are not navigable for anyone with arthritis, for sure. There needs to be a warning to this effect in the property description.

I can see sportsmen or families with kids and dogs staying at this place when weather is nice--or if they like winter sports. Just be aware that it has minimal amenities. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this property to a friend or relative---except perhaps to my adult son and friends who are winter sport enthusiasts.

Owner's Response: Well, I guess this one deserves some kind of response. Here goes! Unfortunately, there was a freak heat wave during that period and the temp was more like 104! However, our area almost always gets afternoon winds which cool things down. After speaking with Kate, I learned that she was afraid of bugs(moths are the only bugs out there) and kept all the windows and doors shut the whole day and evening. I imagine that would create some kind of oven. Anyway, there are screens for all the doors and windows but I dont use them as most people including me enjoy the indoor/outdoor feel of the place. There is a ceiling fan and 2 normal sized fans. There were indeed 2 missing shades as the previous renters tore them up and I had to order new ones. I guess she never found the outdoor shower that is attached to the downstairs bathroom. It is always a delight to me to take a shower outside looking at the mountains. Hot tubbers dont have to walk through the house wet to shower either. Oh, those steps? Well there are 16, not 19 as described on my page. They don't go straight up but at the normal angle stairs go. As for amenities, I guess I don't even understand that. There is everything a person would need to live there full time. The bottom line is this: I don't want anyone to be miserable and hate my place as I put a lot of heart and soul into it. Had she called ( as I always encourage guests to do), I would have gladly refunded her money. I have done so in the past for illness, family tragedy or even change in plans. She is right about one thing; this is not the place for people who cannot negotiate stairs and wish to spend their time shut in and sedentary. OK, I m done now and I sure wish I didn't have to do that as there is no pleasure in it. Please read my page before you rent. Thanks, Mike
