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.


Excellent! 4.4/5 -

Bend Stay

  • 3 of 5

The house was convenient and fine. I felt that it was a bit frumpy, to say the least, and needs a bit of freshening up for the price point. The photos were misleading about the size of the property and the house could have been freshened up with cleaner rugs, etc. The heating systems in each bedroom were confusing also.

Clean, however, and the hot tub is nice, but it would have been good to have more directions about the hot tub and that takes 4+ hours to warm up to 100 degrees in the winter.

Owner's Response: Carol; I would like to respond to your review of the Bend Urban Cabin. The following comments are on each of your issues: 1. The house was frumpy: (old and unattractive). The home is 29 years old and has been furnished in Cabin Décor with emphasis on outdoor sports such as Skiing and Fishing. This is not a designer home nor is it is represented as one. We have many antiques, furniture from our parents and Fine Art from the Pacific Northwest and East Coast in the home. This is a 28 year family retreat that we share with our guests. 2. Needs a bit of refreshing: (pleasantly new) for the price point. We have all the modern conveniences (Wi-Fi, Flat Screen TV, Net flicks etc.). As for the price point, it is the lowest cost per night property in the River West Neighborhood in Bend with 3 full bedrooms, 2 bathrooms that sleeps up to 6 people with a Private Hot Tub. 3. The Photos were misleading: (deceptive/confusing) about the size of the property: Our listing states that the home is 1500 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths plus a media room. We have 24 photos, most were professionally taken to provide our Guests with exactly what they are to expect. None of the photos are staged or misleading. 4. Freshened up with cleaner rugs: We have carpeting in the West Bedroom and Master Bedroom Upstairs. These carpets are 5 years old and are cleaned a minimum of once a year by a Licensed Professional Carpet Cleaning Company. The rest of the floors are either tile or hardwood. In the Bunk Room we have a small braided handmade throw rug. The throw rug in the living room is hand braided by my wife’s mother and over 70 years old. It is a family heirloom. 5. The heating systems in the bedroom were confusing: When have Cadet Electric wall heaters in the bedrooms. They each are individually controlled by a thermostat that you can set the temperature to your comfort level. I find it difficult to understand how they could be confusing. A Vacation Home Rental is an experience that a Guest has an opportunity to live another person’s home and experience their life style. We make every effort to make our Guest Experience a positive environment. We strive to assure our Guests that we take an extra effort to see that their Vacation/Holiday at the Bend Urban Cabin is a great experience. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations.

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.
