Experience a few of central Oregon’s 320 annual days of sunshine at the Bend Urban Cabin, a 3-bed, 2-bath vacation rental just 5 minutes from Old Town Bend and the Old Mill District.
Where does our "urban cabin" get its name? In part from the knotty pine interiors, wood stove, and cozy pine furnishings inside our 1,500 square foot space. Plus a pine-shaded outdoor area where deer sightings are common. Take in the view from the 6-person hot tub on the back deck!
The "urban" part comes from our proximity to Bend, in an established residential neighborhood: you can walk to several brewpubs and restaurants, supermarkets and even two Starbucks. Or take a 5-minute drive to Bend for shopping, art galleries, artisan cocktails and more.
Make the "Urban Cabin" your home base for all the indoor and outdoor adventures that surround us here. Our cabin features:
• Two outdoor decks in the Ponderosa Pines
• Private hot tub
• Charcoal barbecue
• Covered parking
• Kid-friendly media room with a collection of movies, games and toys
• Outdoor dining area for alfresco meals
• Flat-screen TV with Netflix
• Free Wifi
Inside the cabin, you’ll experience kick-off-your-boots charm, with inviting seating around the warm fireplace. Great for small families, three couples, and other groups of up to 6, our family has been making memories here since 1982, and hope your family will add your own!
Adventurous guests love white water rafting on the Deschutes River and snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor, while those looking for a little more laid-back activity can golf or sail. All of these activities are within a 30-minute drive from the Urban Cabin.
MASTER BEDROOM (Upper Level):Queen-size bed with TV and access to a private bath with shower.
BEDROOM #2 (lower Level): Queen-size bed, office area, a full bath.
BEDROOM #3 (Main Level): Bunk room with twin-over-full pine bunk beds and direct access to the downstairs bathroom.
High, beamed ceilings frame the open living room, where your group can gather around the wood-burning stove and large flat screen TV. A leather couch and 2 armchairs are the perfect spot to lounge after a day exploring.
In the media room (a hit with kids), find a leather couch, TV, DVD, stereo and additional table for cards. A whole bookcase full of games awaits for the little ones (and older ones) to enjoy.
Wander outside to either of the 2 decks surrounded by 150 foot tall Ponderosa Pines and relax in the hot tub for truly special nights under a star-studded Oregon sky.
KITCHEN & DINING
Dine in comfort around the table for 6. Just beside the dining area is the 2-step kitchen, compact and convenient, with all the essentials for making a home-cooked meal. A gas range and modern appliances make dinner prep simple. Make a movie night snack with the popcorn maker, or delicious breakfast with the waffle iron. Spices and most condiments are provided.
Outdoor seating and a charcoal grill set the scene for a backyard BBQ, and the margarita maker in the kitchen creates a refreshing vacation treat!

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 River West
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.

Amazing cozy house perfectly located.
The house was perfectly laid out and close to both town and mountain. The hot tube was great to have too. Super attentive owners. Would definitely come back!
Timothy; I am pleased to see that your Vacation/Holiday in Sunny Central Oregon was enjoyed by you and your family.
Perhaps you may be back to the Bend Urban Cabin this summer to pursue Hiking, Bike Riding, River Rafting, Golfing or one of the many outdoor sports that Bend has to offer.
Second Time Around, Just as Good as the First
We enjoyed our second stay at the Bend Urban Cabin. It's great locale and access to all things Bend and Bachelor are perfect. We'll keep this one in our back pocket for regular visits to Bend. 2kids 2 adults!!
Homely cabin close to town with great amenities
We stayed in the cabin over New Years for a short skiing/hiking vacation in Bend. As a group of 6 friends there was plenty of space to sleep, cook and cozy up by the fire. We used the hot-tub a couple of times and it was clean and well maintained. Dennis was quick to answer any of our queries and we loved all the personal touches around the place. I would highly recommend this cabin for small groups or families looking for a quiet place close to town and the river.
Lynda; Glad you and your your friends had a great experience in Sunny Central Oregon. There is something for everyone who likes the High Desert and the year around recreation it provides.
Try the Summer, it is awsome!
The whole package for a great weekend!
The Bend Urban Cabin went beyond our expectations! It was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. We enjoyed visits from the 'resident deer' and the covey of baby quail one day. The hot tub was a great treat to go back to after a day of bike riding and shopping. The kids enjoyed playing lots of board games that the cabin provided. We will definity come back to the Urban Cabin again soon!
Shannon; Thanks for reviewing the Bend Urban Cabin. The wildlife has been there for over 30 years and we also enjoy watching the Deer and Quail. We try to make the Bend Urban Cabin comfortable for all ages. We will welcome you back on your next visit to Bend.
