About Dennis Harvey

We built the home in 1988 and it has been a vacation home since then. We upgraded in 2003. We currently live in Southwest Washington.and this is our permanent second home and we spend about 10 days a month here. There have been 23 years of vacations and family experiences in the home. We now want to share our home and all the benefits of having a vacation/holiday in Bend with others.

Dennis Harvey purchased this house in 1988

Why Dennis Harvey chose Bend

We started skiing in in Bend in 1979 and always thought it would be a nice place for a second home. We watched it boom in the 80s and purchased the lot in 1982. We are an outdoor family, ski, hunt, fish and camp. There is no other place on the West Coast that has year around recreation. There is something for everyone all the time.

What makes this house unique

Since we finished the house, wildlife is abundant all the time. Deer almost daily, squirrels, rabbits, quail, dove, geese and ducks and geese flying by on a regular basis. It is like being in the woods, but in the City Limits. That is why we have always called our BEND URBAN CABIN.

5 guys golf trip....the place served its purpose well.

  • 4 of 5

OK, five guys golf trip with more expectations required from the golf courses and our game than from the accommodations. The place was everything it said it was....except the vicinity to town amenities. Apparently, 5 blocks is too long to walk after a day on the course. Couple o guys brought their bikes, they said, the proximity was perfect for the two wheeler. The private backyard deck was made just for us to have a cold one and discuss the shots of the day. BBQ was put to good use. Hotub was used a couple o times. Kitchen well equipped. The line of cabinets over the stove are not necessary and makes the kitchen feel small and makes one feel trapped. Nice that the bedrooms are located in 3 different sections of the house. Jack/jill bathroom downstairs. Nice master suite upstairs. Quiet neighborhood. Everyone, i mean everyone in Bend is nice. Must be the beer?

Great weekend! Loved the urban cabin! Few setbacks...

  • 4 of 5

We planned a wonderful birthday weekend that turned into a beautiful engagement weekend! This place was the perfect size for my fiance and our 4 best friends! It was in a great location within a short drive of everywhere we wanted to visit. We had a rad time floating the river, chill time bbqing in the beautiful back yard, and a very relaxing night of star gazing from the hot tub! The backyard was my favorite part besides the outdoor picnic table where we spent majority of our time. We booked this room knowing it was AC-less on one of the hottest weekends of the year but we still couldn't get over how uncomfortable it was. An AC unit, better upkeep of the hot tub (intense chemical odor), as well as adequately stocking the toilet paper would have provoked us to score 5/5. Everything else was great, thanks for a fun weekend in beautiful Bend, Oregon! <3

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. July is the hottest month of the year in Bend. We have owned the home for 28 years and have have not needed AC. Due to the wide change in temperatures in the evening. We use the Baqua System for the Hot Tub which is much easier on your skin. There is a different odor associated with than Chlorine. We have extra toilet paper in each bathroom in the drawers and cupboards. Perhaps you missed them. Glad you had an enjoyable vacation.

I think the Urban Cabin name is a little misleading, its much more than a cabin! Fabulous setup with lots of space to hang out in either of the two common rooms. Hot tub was very relaxing. It's the perfect location, close to everything. We took long walks at night in the beautiful, quiet neighborhood. Very relaxing, and easy! Just what we needed! We will be back soon!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

Two friends and myself stayed at the cabin for a training that we needed to attend in Bend. The cabin was located close to shops and restaurants but at the same time was nestled in a nice neighborhood which provided lots of peace and quiet. This cabin pretty much had everything we needed and was very cozy. I will be sure to stay at this cabin again the next time I come to Bend!
